When you read the word respiratory, does it lead you to thinking about your spirit? Unfortunately not for most people because the way we pronounce it doesn't clearly show us its root. However, I discovered one day that there was a message in this word and its etymology.
We are breathing the same argon that Mother Theresa breathed. The same argon that Martin Luther King, Jr. and Shakespeare breathed. Einstein and Rilke, any figure or role-model of the past and yes, your grandparents and their greatest of great grandparents all the way back, all breathed in and out the same argon particles. Even the most evil person you could imagine that has been here with us, took part in this one living spectacle.
It is common, almost colloquial, that when you ask someone to take a deep breath or relax and enjoy a sweet, conscious breath that they will begin on an inhale. As soon as you make the invitation to do so, the person almost instantly begins to breathe-in. However, this may be counter-intuitive to what is actually most beneficial for stress reduction, creating relaxation and inducing states of calmness.
