Essence of Breema

Essence of Breema: October 2012

All human beings have a hidden desire for something infinite and eternal. And that is unreachable, because as soon as you start to reach for it, you believe in the idea of separation from it.

Essence of Breema: June 2012

The practical approach in Breema is connection between body and mind. Let your mind spend some of its energy and time on the registration of the process of inhalation and exhalation. As you practice letting the mind remain with the breath, inhaling and exhaling, you get a taste of what body-mind connection means. You create a base for yourself. Then you take that taste you received, and from time to time during the day you connect with it. That brings you from the passive state to the active state. In the passive state your three centers are not working together— the mind is chaotic, the body tense and the feelings anxious—and your energy is drained.

Essence of Breema: January 2012

To do Breema, just keep it as simple as you can. That means drop all your self-images. You don’t need to be something particular. You don’t need to be a good practitioner. Just allow this body to manifest, and be grateful that you have this opportunity. If you need to do something, then breathe and know that this body is breathing. Know that this body has weight on the ground, and experience the weight of the body on the ground. When you do this, nothing more, you are closer to what you are in reality. As you continue to practice, slowly this becomes property of your Being.

Essence of Breema: February 2011

Why practice Breema? Because you need taste. When you experience the body, you see that you and the body are two different phenomena. When you bring your body and mind together, you have a chance to see you are not this mind, not this body. You are not your sensations, nor are you your feelings. Then what are you? You are that which is conscious of mind, feelings, body, and sensations. This realization becomes your first taste of freedom.

Essence of Breema: October 2010

What does it mean to be balanced? It means to be present. Breathe with the knowledge that you are present with the body, and stay with that, until a new energy enters. That new energy is the feelings coming in. Now body, mind, and feelings are together. Stay with that for a while, and you see you are one part of one whole unified Existence. The sense of separation disappears.

Essence of Breema: July 2010

When we come to a balanced state, the mind switches its orientation, and connects to your consciousness. Then you have a grain of conscious energy. Consciousness has light, and with that light, it penetrates and sees through, so you can see where you are.
If, for example, you see that you’re imbalanced, it means there is some degree of balance too, otherwise you couldn’t see that imbalance. Then your energy can go to support balance, and you become more balanced.

Essence of Breema: April 2010

What can you do in this moment? You first have to organize yourself to be available for this moment. How do you organize yourself? Bring your mind, which is somewhere else, to your body. When you bring mind and body together, your feelings will come in. Now you are available to the moment. We cannot pretend we don't have attachments. But they cannot prevent us from being in this moment.

Essence of Breema: July 2009

Conscious energy is available as an aspect of is-ness, as part of the existing universe. We only need to be receptive to it. And body-mind together is the best way for us to become receptive. If you practice any of the Nine Principles, without preconceived ideas and without expectation, you become receptive to Conscious energy, in the taste of your own existence.
Wherever you go, your body is with you. Do you know that? When you know it, you are receptive to Conscious energy. That knowing comes from Conscious energy. That’s true knowing. That’s why there is taste in it. By bringing your mind to the body, you enter the is-ness, and you receive Conscious energy as a taste of there is a body.

Essence of Breema: February 2009

Practicing Breema, there’s no need for description of what my hand is touching. No part of me needs to hold itself separate to describe from the sidelines the sensations of warmth or cold, softness or hardness. They are, whatever they are. In Full Participation, there is no need for description. Description neither adds nor subtracts. It only confuses us, and shifts the emphasis away from knowing ourselves.

Essence of Breema: November 2008

The joy of doing Breema expresses itself in your entirety. You are not doing Breema— you are Breema. You are that which you are expressing. Putting your hand on someone's shoulder or picking up a cup becomes Existence manifesting itself. To get the actual taste and meaning of Breema, nothing is better than working with the Nine Principles.

Essence of Breema: February 2008

When you manifest being present, an echo comes back to you from your activity— I am present. It’s as simple as that. The Nine Principles are not poetry, not something nice to say, they’re the fact of your experience if you are receptive to it. Breema is an activity that supports you to have a momentary experience of being present, and to prolong it a bit, so you can benefit. Once you get what this means, you see it’s your birthright to be present. Why should you be any other way? Why should you be absent?

Essence of Breema: December 2007

Our chief difficulty is that we take ourselves to be what we see with our physical eyes, with our sense organs, and also whatever we heard about ourselves in our childhood. We only become free of that conditioning when we are present. The way we think and feel is not how we really think and feel— it’s how we are conditioned to think and feel.

Essence of Breema: October 2007

Coming from complication to simplicity means, via the breath, coming to the body. Then everything falls into place. At any given moment you have a chance to experience that moment, only. Not what happened in the past, not what’s going to happen. This moment is what is given to you to experience. That’s all, and it’s the only possibility you have. So just come to it. The next moment will take care of itself.

Essence of Breema: August 2007

Our body has to become an instrument that has the atmosphere of Breema and Self-Breema, soit can invite Conscious energy. Conscious energy can see, and guides us through life. GettingBreema in your body increases the ability of your body to respond to Conscious energy.

Essence of Breema: June 2007

Full Participation means to come from the passive state to the active state. I am in the active state only when my mind and body are together. If all day long you do only physical work or emotional work or mental work, you’re living your life in the passive state. The true active state is when the mind and body and feelings are participating with a common aim, which is to be present, to come to I am. Body-mind together is a perfect direction, because we do not have command over our feelings. We cannot ask our feelings to be a particular way. They are what they are. Sometimes they’re like this, sometimes they’re like that, but that’s the periphery of the feelings. The true feelings are not that which reacts and has like and dislike. When body and mind are together, the true feelings participate. True feelings have one aim—to supply energy for being present. When body and mind are together and present, and feelings supporting, I remain present. Then my relationship to the body I am doing Breema on, or to this body which is working, is not of a personal nature. The existence of what is is what counts. We call that the language of emanation. The emanation of this body-mind-feelings connects with emanation of the body-mind-feelings of the recipient, and in that moment of unity, we are both receptive to receive conscious energy.
