'8 Components of Heart Breathing' provides everything needed to start practicing Heart Breathing for spiritual expansion and physical well-being.
The sacred, and all qualities of unconditional love such as beauty, exist only as a response from within.
It is the quality of attention we give to each moment which, by degree, turns the secular into the sacred.
Also, personal chaos and all qualities of fear and separation exist only as a reaction from within.
My experience of life is wholly my responsibility, as I attract my circumstances and my will is the sole determinant of my reaction or response to them.
Krisk0 and I met at the Sadhana Ashram in the Black Forest of Germany, earlier this year.
I enjoy his sharp mind, independent thinking, and innocent heart.
Krisk0 shared his free verse poem, 'Chosen' with me after receiving my writing on Reaction - Response.
Following 'Chosen' is a description of a course of study from David GIkandi, author of 'Happy Pocket...', with a YouTube video and links. I haven't gone through the course yet, but resonated with David's reference to wealth/abundance consciousness being a potential within each person. It fits with my recent realization that beauty exists only as a response form within. As always, I trust the reader to use your own discernment.

» What are your thoughts on the more esoteric applications of music and sound?
by Montalk (link to web site below)
As I walked past a wall of wooden boards on an emotionally gray day, I stopped at a vine-covered opening which appeared rather plain and photographed it. I said to Kati, 'Beauty is where the eye can see it' and clicked the camera again.
The Absolute and the Relative are aspects of an even greater Whole.
The Current is a ride to that One, from the non-existent conditioned mind of Man.
Ride the current over your breath.
Skillfully use the breath, your voice, and your imaginative will
to find by feeling the Current.
Though the mind wanders, continually bring your attention back to the Current.
Each person finds the Current in their own way.
For me, it is over the Dance of Light, another name
for the Heart Breathing Moving Meditation...
THE QUANTUM VACUUM:
HOW ‘EMPTY’ SPACE IS ACTUALLY THE “SEAT OF THE MOST VIOLENT PHYSICS”
by Arjun Walia, published on Collective Evolution
A century from now, it will be well known that: the vacuum of space which fills the universe is itself the real substratum of the universe; vacuum in a circulating state becomes matter; the electron is the fundamental particle of matter and is a vortex of vacuum with a vacuum-less void at the center and it is dynamically stable; the speed of light relative to vacuum is the maximum speed that nature has provided and is an inherent property of the vacuum; vacuum is a subtle fluid unknown in material media; vacuum is mass-less, continuous, non viscous, and incompressible and is responsible for all the properties of matter; and that vacuum has always existed and will exist forever….Then scientists, engineers and philosophers will bend their heads in shame knowing that modern science ignored the vacuum in our chase to discover reality for more than a century.
The quote above comes from Paramahamsa Tewari, Inventor of what’s called the Reactionless AC Synchronous Generator (RLG).
Kati and I returned a couple of days ago from a transforming journey which took us from Crete to the Black Forest of Germany to the Algarve in southern Portugal to the Azores.
I found David Gordon and Spirit Sound while following a feeling to deepen and expand the components of Heart Breathing.
Meditation with Music by David Gordon can deepen and expand the practice of Heart Breathing.
Audible Prana: the power of vibrating breath
by David Gordon
My first experience of the inner power of the voice was during a yoga session years ago. We concluded with a silent meditation, and ended the meditation with the usual "Om." But this time, the teacher suggested that we prolong the sound, entering more fully into the awareness of the vibrations of the tone. The group began toning, each of us breathing at our own natural pace, so the group sound was continuous. When the sound ended, it seemed like my entire being was still vibrating. This experience opened a new door of perception to me....
On our recent adventure in Europe, we did work exchange with various hosts.
Peter Janosik, a fellow working guest, introduced me to several simple yoga exercises which complement the Heart Breathing Moving Meditation, making it a more complete toolset for the self development of transforming one's inner coarse gold into refined gold. Thank you, Peter, for sharing your love for the practice of yoga.
Crossing Over is the story of a sound healer who was invited into the difficult situation of using sound to bring the healing of balance to a man with terminal illness and a family in denial.
In the linear state, there are timelines and space coordinates.
In the non-linear state, there are not — which is why it is called chaos.
The non-linear state is also called the Absolute,
the Void, and the Present Moment Frequency.
This is the underlying chaos, the creation force of all possibilities, the Essence.
Personal chaos, on the other hand, is an unskilled reaction
by the conditioned mind to what it interprets as stressors,
a resistance to the underlying chaos,
alleviated by aligning with Essence.
After publishing my spin on chaos, while waiting in the Lisbon airport for our scheduled connecting flight to JFK and on to SFO, an announcement was made that due to the snowstorm, New York was closed.
What followed could easily fit the common definition and popular understanding of chaos:
Today I reflected on the past two months of our journey from Coarsegold, California to Crete in the Greek Isles, to the Sadhana Ashram in the Black Forest of Germany, to a 'new mindset of family' in Lagos, the Algarve, southern Portugal, to another fascinating and challenging working guest situation on Terceira Island in the Azores, middle of the Atlantic.
Continued from Sadhana to Lagos
It was 'love at first sight' with the island we are on in the middle of the Atlantic, the Violet Island in the Islands of Mist and Remnants of Atlantis.
During our first night in Lagos, Portugal, in my dream, Kati and I had a choice between what was easy and what would enable us to grow. We chose to grow.
It feels like a summary of our lives together. We always choose to grow, and it is never easy. We groan to grow.
Life offers its gifts in sweet moments: closeness shared, the beautiful woods of the Black Forest, and the bakeries of the village!
The seasons will be turning soon, as the first flowers of Spring are already defying the frozen cold of Winter, and the promise of new life is in the air.
We are also feeling a promise of moving on.
- from a postcard to my sister
This morning, on our last full day at the ashram, one of the community members (Maria) offered to lead us in a moving meditation. It was such a beautiful ending to our time here.
Photos of the meditation in the ashram seminar room, with music from the CD, 'Meditation der vier Himmelsrichtungen' by Jabrane Mohamed Sebnat, are posted below as a continuation from '11:11.'
