Without oxygen, life switches off. Without prana, the soul sleeps.
Man is energy. He is in a permanent unconscious link with the vital force of the universe. Breathing is the link with this vital force and is his first action on the earth plane. It is, fundamentally and essentially, the way he lives and expresses himself here on Earth.
It is extremely important to understand how this vital force, known as “prana”, “chi” or “ether”, can be received, assimilated, and used by man.
According to eastern knowledge, an invisible network of the universal etheric substance, already individualised, exists at the time of conception and is the original matrix, superimposed upon man’s physical structure. It is the organizer of development.
The freedom of the diaphragm, through conscious breathing, is vital and essential, as the action of breathing is both mechanical and sacred.
The breath comes from the life-giving fuel of the universe, and enriches the etheric body and the nervous system. When the breath is insufficient in volume, rate, and rhythm, the capacity to sustain life is jeopardized. Stagnation of energy and its flow, whether emotional, mental, or organic, leads to cellular pollution and disrupts the organization and equilibrium of the whole person. When this occurs, the breath is unable to deliver to the cells the quality of vitality, self-expression, and true health they require.
The steady liberation of the diaphragm is a unique and logical way to clean our wonderful etheric body and to penetrate it’s meaning. It is core to the en’ wave program and integral to the understanding of the energies of man.
