The meaning of breathing


Excerpt from Sar Dinoil's "Developing of astral abilities"


We already know that respiration is, so to speak, the central function of our body. Breathing is associated, on the one hand, with the lower physiological processes of the body (blood circulation), and on the other, with the higher ones (activity of the nerves). From this it is clear that by subordinating breath to will and consciousness, we subordinate the whole organism to them. Therefore, breathing exercises are especially important.


When breathing deeply, the pericardium expands and the heart fulfills its role better. Changing the position of the aorta and vena cava further improves blood circulation. The work of the digestive organs also improves, especially the separation of bile, the contents of the pancreas and the contraction of the intestines.


But it is especially important for us that, as you know, in the lungs, thanks to respiration, the spoiled waste blood is purified and enriched with energy, called "prana", and oxygen, and leaves in them various harmful substances (carbonic acid, ptomains) to be released. Through the activity of the heart, the blood carries oxygen and prana throughout the body.


Most cultured people cannot breathe at all. The inhabitants of cities with spoiled air breathe especially weakly.


But what is especially important for us is that these exercises generate in us a special modification of prana - the mysterious "serpentine power of Kundalini", with the help of which most of the phenomena of interest to us are produced. (Prana is the universal energy of nature in general, Kundalini is its modification, which is psychophysical energy that animates our body).


MEANS OF CONTROL: Skeptics can easily be convinced of this: having taken a deep breath and holding air in the lungs, one has only to strongly contract some muscle, focusing attention on it, in order to clearly feel the current of "Kundalini" in it.


The four phases of breathing: inhaling, holding and exhaling air and stopping breathing when the lungs are empty, correspond to the four phases of that law of universal development and disappearance of things, which we already talked about in the second part of the first lecture (communication with nature).


With each inhalation, we absorb new forces, with each holding of the breath we strengthen them, with each exhalation we are freed from harmful substances and give up the surplus of our energy to the environment.


By arbitrarily changing the duration of these phases, we can accordingly increase or decrease the absorption, assimilation and expenditure of energy (influence on ourselves and on the outside world; see lecture 12).
