Master Your Breath
MASTER YOUR BREATH
Breath is essential to life. The body is an active living container for the breath as it moves in and out. Our muscles open up space in our core to pull fresh air in and then close down to push the old air out. This expansion and contraction also massages the inner organs, aids digestion, and promotes the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid.
If you can control the Breath you can completely control all the forces of the Universe, mental and physical.
Did you know that the vital capacity is the capacity shown by the largest quantity of air a man can inhale after the deepest possible exhalation?
Breath is the most intimate experience we make with our body and a vital bodily function next to eating. The energy in the body is pure Life Force, also called Prana. Prana is derived from Sanskrit and means Life Force.
By controlling the motion of the lungs or respiratory organs, we can control the Prana that is vibrating inside. By control of Breath, the mind can be easily controlled, because the mind is fastened to the energy in the body, like the bird to the string.
It is our divine breath – the vital life force present in all things. The energy of air is subtle energy which travels through the channels in the body.
