Essence of Breema

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.

Essence of Breema: February 2007

The language of emanation is precise. It does not miscommunicate, and it is not misinterpreted. Because emanation is direct from your True nature to yourself. When you practice Breema, if you see that Existence is manifesting itself, and you see that the recipient is also Existence manifesting itself, the concepts of “me” and “mine” disappear. Then, through the emanation that is received, the recipient can become familiar with their forgotten aspect—the essential reality of who they are.

Essence of Breema: December 2006

If I drop my concepts, what happens? An emanation exists, and is exchanged between me and whoever I’m with. If I drop everything and I just do Breema, the recipient and I have common ground. We are both fully accepted by that emanation, because emanation accepts everything. In acceptance, an exchange takes place. Both the recipient and the practitioner simultaneously receive from that emanation.

Essence of Breema: August 2006

To become connected to the reality of your existence, you only need to see “I exist.” It’s so difficult for the mind to accept it could be that simple. But it’s actually even simpler than that. Before even saying the words “I exist,” Existence is there. Just as the sun shines and the moon reflects, our temporary aspect is a reflection of our eternal aspect. That’s why coming to the fact that body breathes, that there is a body, gives us a taste of something higher within us, something that exists. That is Consciousness.

Essence of Breema: June 2006

Your mind is restless because it is yearning for a meaningful job. That’s why it stuffs itself with information and images—it hasn’t found the right job yet. Your mind has been misused as a memorizing tool, and its majestic function ignored.

Essence of Breema: March 2006

We learn and practice so many Breema sequences, and so many Self-Breema exercises. What is the fruit of it all? The fruit is to come to taste. But that’s the fruit that’s still hanging on the branches, not yet ripe. And unless you eat ripe fruit, you are not fully nurtured by it. How does the fruit ripen? Practicing a lot may be part of it. But what really ripens the fruit is taking taste into your daily life. You may receive tastes while you practice Breema and Self-Breema, and while you are in Breema classes, in this atmosphere. You have to know that those are tastes of your existence. But then, if you aren’t participating in your daily life with that taste, you are not eating ripe fruit.

Essence of Breema: December 2005

Breema is simple. Say you’re sitting. As soon as you know you’re sitting, that’s Breema. You are breathing. As soon as you know you are breathing, that’s Breema. When you’re looking at something, as soon as you know you’re looking, what you receive from the knowledge you are looking is giving you Breema. Whatever you look at when you are present is giving you Breema, and you are giving Breema to it.

Essence of Breema: September 2005

You place your hand on the recipient’s foot. What are you doing? Obviously, you lean the weight of your body into your hand. What does your hand experience being on the recipient’s foot? That’s not your business. What does their foot experience? That’s not your business either. What does your body experience as it leans toward your hand? Not your business. What does your mind experience as thoughts come and go? Not your business. All of those experiences are just events of life. But the reality of your existence is the Awarenesss that you exist. You are present, as Existence. That’s your business. If you take care of your business, your hand becomes precious, leaning becomes precious, all your experiences become precious. Because everything becomes real when you’re connected to your true nature.

Essence of Breema: June 2005

Your body is simply an aspect of consciousness, manifesting in the dimensions of energy and matter. Energy and matter cannot be separated from consciousness. You practice Breema bodywork and Self-Breema so your body can receive this knowledge. You are not what you think. What you appear to be is just a temporary expression, a passing expression of what you are in reality. Your reality is realizable. You can’t realize through your mind, feelings, or senses. You realize in your Being, and your Being doesn’t interpret words. It receives emanation. That’s how it knows what is true and what isn’t. You can say correct things, but that doesn’t make them truth. Your Being has to resonate with what’s said.

Essence of Breema: May 2005

When you practice Breema with someone, all you need is to just be present. It’s really not about how well you do Breema, or about which sequences you do. All of that is just to support you to become open and receptive, so you can experience the taste of being present. But once you become present, it’s no longer you doing Breema. Your true nature is emanating, and in that emanation, you and the recipient become united in a single field of acceptance. Your Timeless reality enters into time and gives you the taste of I exist.
