Breath is the bridge between body and mind. Keep focused on the breath.

Gurunath has said through the breath we are all connected, humanity is One.

The breath is studied by many mystics and those on the spiritual path.

I read this today... It's a bit lengthy but I am trying to share what seem like relevant parts:


Quote
The next aspect of mans being is the breathing system, which in reality is not physical. Breath as it is understood by science is the air which one inhales and its action on the lungs and other organs. But according to the mystic the breath is a formation of man, it is magnetism, it is ethereal aspect of his being which is not only situated in the body, but which is also around the body. It is by the power of this breath that man is able to stand and walk on this ever-moving world. The moment this energy which is breath fails, man can no longer stand on the ground even if the whole mechanism of his physical body is in perfect condition. Thus there is part of man which lives in the ethereal magnetism that he breathes and that gives him radiance and energy.

When we go further still we find that there is beingness that we believe to be perhaps within our body or perhaps somewhere else. One cannot point it out but it is there, and it is what we call mind. This thinking faculty has it seat in the physical body; but it is not limited by the physical body. It is independent of it. No doubt it functions in the organs of sense and in the nervous centers in order to perfect man's experience; nevertheless it is independent of the physical body; it is a faculty that can exist without the physical body, as the eyes can exist without spectacles, the spectacles only help the eyes to see more clearly. The mind is the surface of that part of our being of which the depths may be called heart. The mind thinks the heart feels; the mind perceives, the heart reflects; the mind imagines, the heart enjoys. The thoughts of the mind are strengthened by the heart. Mind and heart are not two things; they are two aspects of one thing, the surface and the depths.

The fourth aspect of our being is beyond explanation. It is joy, happiness. Man seeks for joy and when the circulation of the joy which belongs to the depths of man's being is congested so that he cannot feel it, then he tries to experience it in what he calls pleasure. Pleasure is the shadow of happiness; something that passes away, that does not last. Being continually occupied in seeking the wrong thing instead of looking for the right thing, man loses his hold on something that belongs to him: his happiness. He begins to look for it everywhere, wherever he thinks he can find it, but he may look for it all his life and yet it will always elude him. He thinks, 'Now I have grasped it,' and it is gone; he thinks, 'Now I have got it,' and it is lost. He thinks, 'Now it is mine,' and it is no longer there. For it is a shadow, and the pursuit after a shadow is a pursuit after nothingness. The joy becomes eclipsed because man does not know that his very being is joy, that his very self is happiness.

Which he says is different from being self-conscious. I planned on sharing this either way, hopefully not in the wrong place.  Smiley
