The ‘I think’ which Kant said must be able to accompany all my objects, is the ‘I breathe’ which actually does accompany them. ~ William James
None of us is perfect, and thank goodness we don’t have to be. All that is required of us is that we breathe—nothing more. Perhaps there is a wee bit more, because we need to stay healthy in order to breathe. Then of course, some of us seek joy, security, love, and other forms of fulfillment. Nevertheless, it comes back to “breathe in, breathe out.”
What does this have to do with hepatitis C? Everything. It serves us well to keep life simple, particularly when trudging through hepatitis C treatment or end-stage liver disease. There are moments when life seems impossible. It is in then, when just existing requires more than we have, the secret of life can be distilled in this single practice, “Breathe in, breathe out.”
Breathe in, breathe out.
