  1. I don't know if this is where this belongs, but, I like to lay quietly and stop breathing. I like the feeling and look of my still chest. Sometimes I open my eyes, sometimes I close them. Today, I looked out the window, and thought that I would like to die that way, looking out into the sun.

    I don't know why I like this so much. I don't really want to die, not immediately, at least. I think I like the release from responsibility. If I'm not breathing, I don't need to do anything.

    Has anyone had similar experiences?

    I too believe its the peacefulness attracting you to this Perhaps it's a coping mechanism too. :hug:

    Your post reminded me of my search for "a still mind" when i studied zen buddhism. Not so very different between the breath of our lungs and the breath of our minds.
