Fire–genderless and raceless–fears no consequences of intersectionality; as long as it can breathe, it cannot be oppressed. Humans may not be able to deny the truths of their identities and orientations, *but* they *can* choose to breathe: inhale positive thoughts and exhale negative ones. Breathing may seem too simple a solution, but Buddha’s happiness was not created by choplogic solutions emerging from mindfulness sessions. While bodies need no mnemonic support regarding remembering to breathe, when the mind focuses on the process, the spirit may be ignited with epiphanies of peace, humility, and unity. Fire does not differentiate that which it consumes, but humans become enlightened when they do what fire cannot: take in only that which benefits and destroy only that which harms. When the world swings a mere at the head, duck, run, and breathe mindfully instead.
