Essence of Breema: December 2006

excerpts from classes at the Breema Center

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.

Everything we teach at the Center is to let go of extra. If you don’t have extra, you don’t need to study Breema! It’s like rain falling from the clouds. You don’t have to do anything to make it rain. But if you are covered with dust, when the rain comes, you’re going to have muddy water. You have to clean the dust off yourself to receive the water of life. And you do that by bringing body, mind, and feelings together.

Once you get what taste is, you have something big. You have something that you relate to. When you look at your day, you see that taste is something you know, something you trust, something you love, something you wish, and at the same time, there’s so little of it in your life.

What to do? The first thing is to acknowledge those small moments of taste, and acknowledge that very genuine desire which is not even in our hands. It sprouts from within. When you see you’ve manifested in some way you didn’t wish to, it doesn’t mean you should forget you had real desire. It doesn’t mean you should forget the simplicity that you know. Just come back to what is simple, and do it. Take one breath. You don’t have to be afraid of your confusion—that’s part of mechanicality. It’s not important. Because reality can’t be diluted by something unreal. It doesn’t matter how many clouds are in the sky. The sun still shines.
