The Book of Revelations is a great mind exercise. We can figure it out of we understand the basic truths about life. But the truth takes the fun out of it and makes us face ourselves. Are you prepared to face yourself?
All there is is Energy, Thought, and Form. We are Spirit, Mind, and Body. The two basic functions of the mind are to create and destroy reality. However, we can also just observe reality or participate in it, as long as it exists.
The Space between our thoughts, The Silence, is God, where we meet God and together we create our reality by the quality of our thoughts.
Most people live in their feelings and forget that they are the Source of their feelings. Our thought habits are the source of our religious feelings as well as all of our other feelings. And we can catch feelings from other people and groups of people. It can be called emotional energy pollution, but we can also catch beautiful feelings from groups worshipping God and from music.
In the Book of Revelations the cube is the symbol for the mind, because which-ever way you turn a cube it is always the same. It is always right side up. The truth is a two-edged sword, or a sword that turns every way. The smallest things in the universe are thoughts, and thoughts have created the biggest things in the universe. Our small problems are created by the mind as well as our big problems.
Our breath connects us to all of the people, plants, and animals on this planet. And the energy that flows within the breath is the energy that we all share and depend upon.
Next Saturday 18 April some of us will be joining together in Holotropic Breathwork workshops on Global Holotropic Breathwork Day to journey once again into the place in us where outside and inside may merge and become one.
But whether you are in a workshop or not on the 18th, see if you can remember that day (if it is not already your daily practice) to notice the breath coming in, the breath going out, your connections inside and outside, and what important yearning in you is waiting for you to notice and honor.
Over the last 30 years, the art and science of Breathwork has made its way to the cutting edge of the human potential movement; and it has found its place at the forefront of mind-body medicine. Breath Awareness and Conscious Breathing are studied and taught wherever consciousness and spirit, science and religion, or loving hearts and open minds come together for good.
From ancient times, breath and breathing has been held sacred by practically every culture in history. The spirit of breath has been celebrated in myth, veiled in ritual, and often passed on only in secret. Yet today, most people are quite aware that conscious breathing is a key to awakening to self-realization, to peak performance, optimum health, and ultimate potential.
If you're a health nut or fitness junkie, take note. If you are into self-improvement or personal growth, pay attention. If you are a counselor or a therapist, or an athlete or a coach, a performer, a healer, or simply a student of life, or one of our treasured elders: then you owe it to yourself to discover, explore and develop the power and potential of Breathwork!
By focusing on your breath, you can awaken healing energies and calming forces within your mind and body. By breathing in certain ways, you can control and direct many so called unconscious or involuntary processes. You can regulate or normalize your physiological, emotional, psychological states.
Since the day you were born, your breath has been your constant companion. The same energy that built your body in the womb is still available to you to rebuild and renew it today. You can use the power and skill of conscious breathing to awaken your creative energy and to tap into your highest potential.
I was just with the fire for a few hours. Feeling the pain lifting off my back, spine, shoulders, neck and solar plexus.
When I went to the supermarket today, I couldn't feel anything, my sensitivity was encased in cement.
This is Tuesday evening. Sunday we got up just after midnight to bathe and leave for airport in Delhi to fly to Athens. Our Turkish Air flight was late due to storms in Istanbul that delayed it. So Elvi got to go shopping in the Delhi airport, which has amazing shops for extra hours. Then our flight from Istanbul was changed and we had 5 extra hours in that airport. Together with all the hours getting encased by EEP in the sardine cans, we arrived to our destination in Athens and started bathing at midnight on Monday.
I fell asleep in the tub for a couple of hours, the first time in weeks. Then I slept until almost noon.
After walks and the little shopping, I enjoyed our hostess Padmini's new fire pit in her garden, she made a nice one. I am first to use it. It is amazing. I couldn't feel any pain until the fire started removing my encasing - the psychic mud. As the layers of mud released, I could feel the pain underneath. Many kinds of body sensations: itching, pain concentrations here and there, moving and releasing - some quite intense. Now it is about 9 pm. After finishing this, off to bath.
