The necessity to follow a daily routine for survival, constant worries to keep moving in the competitive world, concerns about uncertainties, and fear of losing something in life keep our thoughts confined to survival.
But our hearts and minds seek freedom. Our strategy to stick to the survival issues clashes with the callings of heart and mind for free space and robs us of peace. We all deeply feel the need for a new life path in such a situation.
The heart and mind have a deep connection with our breath. That is why heavy-heartedness and restlessness of mind directly influence our breath. Restlessness makes our breathing fast, and grief makes us feel that our breath is falling somewhere down, creating a hollow deep within us.
In this article, I am trying to focus on the breath’s hidden secret that can help in creating a new life path.
Before coming to the secret of the breath, let me focus on the types of mindsets we usually find in society related to living life or life purpose.
Many of us want to do something worthy in life. But we are not sure about what shall we do.
Many of us don’t even know why we feel so down. Finally, we find ourselves caught in the clutches of aimlessness.
Some people rigidly follow the daily routine and never deviate from practicing the rules commonly followed in society. They discourage doing things that are not widely done in the community.
I often wished I could get a chance to see the results of experiments done on the regular breathing style of people having different mindsets. But the centers for such scientific practices are rarely found in society.
Breathing is a common phenomenon, but all individuals’ breathing pattern is not similar. Breaths have strong connections with the heart and mind and influence thoughts. So they are the doorsteps to create a new path for life. The revelation of a small secret related to breath will make this point clear.
Secret: Breath is electricity
Breath is termed Prana by ancient saints. The nature of Prana is similar to electricity. Prana retains heat in the body, enabling it to move.
Electricity, too, creates heat while flowing and makes the devices move. The chord of the breath is tied up with soul and life energy. Within the breath that we feel, there is an existence of subtle breath. That is the primary source of life energy.
Through breathing exercises, efforts are made to energize the subtle breath. Meditation helps to reach the level of subtle breath. Like meditation, any creative work that holds our concentration can take us to a meditative state.
Our love and dedication to any work can make our breath flow in a specific manner to reach this state. In this state, body, and mind comes to harmony and follow the command of the soul or the Self’ letting life energy or electricity flow in three of them.
As a result, the thoughts or desires hidden in the subconscious mind get revealed, and we feel the joy of creating or discovering something. The natural brook of joy is hidden in the soul or the ‘Self .’ Through breath, we can begin the journey to the stream of joy.
Practicing meditation without knowing the secret of the breath is just an aimless exercise. When we meditate with an aim, we set our arrow to reach the soul and come back with a hint or knowledge of a path to achieve the purpose.
It is necessary to clean the energy channels through breath to avoid the clogging of negative thoughts or rigidity. Clogging of negative thoughts leads to tension, depression, etc.
Those who feel that they want to do something worthy in life but can’t identify it and those who want to get rid of aimlessness can give themselves a chance by experimenting with their breath, mind, heart, and soul. Hear binaural beats to harness the brain.
Only our soul knows which path can give us peace and joy. All we need is to get an answer from our ‘Self’ by energizing the tiny dot of electricity that lies in the breath of each one of us as life energy. Befriend it and create a new path in life.
