Breathing to Lessen Suffering

Listened to a Ram Dass lecture last night. On CD, how old-school. He says that by breathing correctly, you can achieve a state of being in which everyone you encounter can grow.

This is how you do it: breathe in as though you have two nostrils in the middle of your chest; envision yourself breathing in a fine mist. Then, exhale everything negative you’re holding onto. Do this a few times until you begin to feel cleansed. At this point, keep breathing in the mist; but envision yourself breathing out a clean, white, healing light. Picture those who are suffering, and send the light out to them. Think: “Do what you have to do, but know that I am here with you.”

And repeat.

Also this:

"

Well, now
If little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you
Little by little
If suddenly you forget me
Do not look for me
For I shall already have forgotten you

If you think it long and mad the wind of banners that passes through my life
And you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots
Remember
That on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms
And my roots will set off to seek another land.

"

"I think you are fundamentally a happy person… You have—you know—you can experience joy."

"Inability to accept the mystic experience is more than an intellectual handicap. Lack of awareness of the basic unity of organism and environment is a serious and dangerous hallucination. For in a civilization equipped with immense technological power, the sense of alienation between man and nature leads to the use of technology in a hostile spirit—to the “conquest” of nature instead of intelligent co-operation with nature."
