Breathing Much Better

This is a true story.  I was having trouble breathing.  I don’t know why but I believe it had something to do with my allergies.  It was more than just through my nose that I was having trouble.  It was like I could not get in enough air even through my mouth.  It was like my lungs could not take in enough no matter what I did.  I was getting a little worried.  Once again I was reminded of reasons why I want to be on this earth, my primary concerns, and my mission in this life.  I was thinking “man I really want to be here”.   I tried breathing in air from the freezer by opening up the door and sticking my head in.  Believe it or not this actually helped some, but not enough.  Then I decided to meditate.  I have had times in the past when I could meditate when having a cold and somehow it seemed like I was able to breathe right through all the stuffiness.  I also reminded myself how meditation takes away stress, just in case the breathing problems were due to stress.  Some time ago I became convinced that there is a different breath for each mood of mind.  Anyway, I meditated and reminded myself that all is well.  Within a short time my breathing seemed to be a little better.  I kept meditating.  In time my breathing was back to normal, if not even smoother.  I was reminded once again just how powerful the meditation is.
