Respiration is essential to physiological and mental functioning. And nothing… I mean nothing is possible in this human life without it. But how does one go about teaching the importance of breath so that it’s relatable, accessible, applicable, and resulting in its positive effect? Well the truth is this, anyone can learn to breathe, maximizing their respiratory strength and overall ability. And anyone can have an experience with their breathing cycle, when used rhythmically, resulting in an exceptional experience, whether self-guided or as a led-practice.
But in order to truly extract the prosperity of breath and what it can offer you, beyond any general approach, whether in the circles of contemporary yoga or health advocacy — knowing the mind, understanding how to use it, and the outgoing work ethic of intelligently designing how you are alive living Life is first and foremostly a prerequisite.
So with that being said, take up study of your own personal mind religiously. Either through the prescribed mental aptitude and methodologies I share here with you in my posts, or through your own devices of study. Nevertheless, be intelligently obsessive in how you use that positive knowledge to elevate your mental platform and mindset, so that you can be more alive, live better, and more throughly experience Life. Raise the platform of how you use your minds individuality, identity, and personality so that you can create a new personal reality. This will enable you to better access the breath from a seat of higher intelligence.
This is the prerequisite.
