This breathing technique is very simple, but at the same time it can be the most powerful of all spiritual practices – believe it.
Inhale and exhale
Inhale and exhale. Inhale and exhale. Perceive that you breathe. Feel the energy flowing inside you with inhaled air, as it penetrates you and fills all the body. Be bright and light, as light as possible. Let yourself remember this state – this is where you came from. Let yourself feel this glow go through your body (no, do nothing, just let it be) and circulate your meridians, like rivers and springs. Feel as it spreads in your body, as it penetrates you, as it fills you. And when this glow, this radiance overfills you – like a cup – let it spread from you around.
Inhale and exhale. Inhale and exhale. You can tell yourself:
I am in peace with myself and the world. I am grateful to myself and the world. With love and gratitude, I let the world flow through me. I let the world’s glow flow through me, penetrate me, because in essence everything is glow, because it is radiance under all things, all words and all acts. The whole world is the expression of that glow, like a fabric of light.
I inhale the glow of the world, I am in peace with the world, I am in peace with myself. I allow that glow to clear everything that is obsolete, no longer needed – insults, misunderstandings and claims. I let it clear my words, thoughts and decisions. I open up to the diversity of the world as to a gift (because it truly is a gift), a gift of diversity that is so generously provided to me by the world every day, although I do not always understand it. I let the kindness of the world flow through me and to recover the light threads in me. To make them shine brightly. I let the glow of the world flow through me and connect me with the whole world. I allow myself to breathe and glow together with the world. I am breathing in the world. The world is breathing in me, through me.
This could be the New Moon meditation. Yours and mine. It can also be a meditation for every day for better understanding, for better connections with the world, people, for better memory.
