“Observe your own body. It breathes. You breathe when you are asleep, when you are no longer conscious of your own ideas of self-identity. Who, then, is breathing? The collection of information that you mistakenly think is you is not the protagonist in this drama called the breath. In fact, you are not breathing; breath is naturally happening to you. You can purposely end your own life, but you cannot purposely keep your own life going. The expression, ‘my life’ is actually an oxymoron, a result of ignorance and mistaken assumption. You don’t possess life; life expresses itself through you. Your body is a flower that life let bloom, a phenomenon created by life.”

I do love whiskey river and am thoroughly gobsmacked by the longevity and discipline of that blog.
Drove me to re-reading through Mark Woods blog, still hosted at that National Capital Freenet, the site I had my first email address with back in 1991. Maybe you and I are the only ones who remember him. I miss him. http://web.ncf.ca/ek867/wood_s_lot.html
