Air surrounds us and fills our lungs on each inhale. For something as important as air, we often take it for granted. The importance of air is far beyond just survival. It is the symbol of life. It represents the interconnectedness of life as we breathe the same air. It carries the whispers of nature, bringing the sweet scent of flowers, and it gives a refreshing breeze on a hot summer day. It carries the song of birds, the rustling of leaves, and we hear the bustling of the city. Through air, we are connected to the world around us, allowing us to experience its beauty.

In this exercise, you will embark on a journey of awareness and gratitude. Notice how each breath gives you a sense of presence. Think of all the ways air affects you - the rush of wind against your face when riding a bicycle or the feeling as you surface from the bottom of the pool. Allow yourself to fully experience these moments, recognizing that the air plays a significant role in shaping your experiences.

Let us all be thankful for the abundance of air that sustains all living things. Breathe deeply and feel your connection to the universe and the web of life. Feel the gratitude building up inside you as you know each breath is a gift. Let each breath serves as a reminder to be present, grateful, and cherish this precious gift of life that is sustained by the air we breathe.

How does it feel on your skin? What does the air feel like when you're riding a bicycle? When you're surfacing from the bottom of a pool? Consider how the air affects you at different times. In each moment of your life, air gives you and every one of us life. Now ask yourself, how does this air connect me to my family? My friends? Strangers? Finally, take a moment to feel gratitude for the abundant air that sustains you and each of these people. Breathe deeply and let that sustaining force connect you to the universe, to all living things, and to God.
