The unconscious death urge is a psychic entity composed of all of our anti-life thoughts, beliefs, and feelings. As a psychic entity, it has intelligence and an urge to survive, even at the expense of the host. The death urge has a life urge and it seems to survive lifetime after lifetime in most individuals. It seems also to be well established in our family tradition. We inherit or learn the death urge from our parents.
This whole deathist system is now being challenged in a big way by thousands, if not millions of individuals. Many people are becoming spiritually enlightened and becoming aware of the many immortal masters on the planet. The true Vedic lifestyle in which victory over death was common is being resurrected in a big way and in an appropriate way for Western Civilized People, as well as Eastern Intelligent People.
In the time of Ram and Sita, it was common for people to live for thousands of years. Everyone knew that death was optional and children did not die for over ten thousand years. The end of this time of heaven on earth was the early Biblical period when people lived for 500 to 1000 years only. Since then, death has become very popular.
Many immortal yogi masters are still on the planet. Bhartriji and Gopichand are 2000 years old for example. Nagarjuna, the founder of Mahayana Buddhism lived for 625 years, from the second to the eighth centuries. Herakhan Baba lived for at least 9,061 years. Westerners are just beginning to open their minds to our spiritual, Divine potentials.
There is something you need to know about your Breath.
It is not just about providing oxygen as fuel for the body.
Yes, it does this but the Breath contains much more.
Breath is the Access Point to your inner reality.
When you let go and Breathe in a gentle circle
it can take you inside to the place of answers,
providing wisdom in moments of confusion,
bringing you peace in moments of stress,
giving you strength when you feel weak,
replacing fear with courage and power,
forgiveness in place of resentment,
and carry you when you are alone.
It opens your heart to all of life.
Your Breath and Spirit are one.
You are a Divine Being.
The Healing Power of the Breath, Simple techniques to reduce stress and anxiety, enhance concentration, and balance your emotions
By Richard P. Brown, MD and Patricia L. Gerbarg, MD, Shambala Publications, London, 2012, 168 pages + audio CD, £ 14.10
As the title of this book points out in detail, this is all about learning to ‘breathe yourself’ to better health. It gives clear instruction as to how to practise breathing techniques to reduce stress and improve physical and mental wellbeing. The authors both have long experience of teaching these techniques. Richard Brown is associate clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University and Patricia Gerbarg has the same position at New York Medical College. Their techniques are derived from yoga, qigong as well as modern breathing and meditation techniques.
The techniques are designed to slow down the natural breathing pattern, to balance the breathing pattern and to use sound as part of one’s breathing. By balancing and harmonising the breathing pattern we automatically balance and harmonise the body and brain. This in turn has an impact on thoughts and emotions, which in turn leads to increased inner wellbeing, both mental but also physical since the body usually suffers from negative thoughts and emotions.
