Alan Watts - On Buddhism II

Now, in breathing, you know that breath is life. The Greek word, you may pronounce it pneauma or pnefma, is the same a spirit. And spirit means breath. In the book of Genesis, when God had made the clay figurine that was later to be Adam, he breathed the breath of life into its nostrils. And it became alive, because life is breath. But now, if you hold your breath, you lose it. He that would save his life will lose it. So Breathe in, Breathe in, Breathe In get as much air as you can and Trishna clean. And you lose it. So Nirvana means breathe out. What a relief that was. The sigh, really let it go. Because it will come back to you if you let it go. But if you don’t let it go. You will just suffocate.
