When you breathe consciously you are taking light into your body, which itself, is made from particles of light.
We are born into life on this Earth to learn to abide in the Eternal Presence that the Gospel of John calls Logos.
There is never a time or place when the Presence of Logos is not here with us, yet when we become lost in our unconscious thoughts, words and actions, believing only in a personalised sense of self, we lose awareness of the Eternal Presence that continually creates and sustains every living thing, and is the animating presence of life within us.
Take a conscious breath: as you breathe with awareness, stilling the mind, you are connecting with the creative unfolding of life. Through the conscious breath, be aware of your Solar Plexus as a radiant point, beneath and behind the heart and lungs – expanding out into the six directions of space.
Be aware of your spinal column from the coccyx at the base of the spine to the first of the seven cervical vertebrae at the top. As you breathe from the solar plexus, feel the spine supporting you, allowing your life force to expand with each breath, releasing any tensions you are holding in your body, and stilling the mind into the Eternal Presence of Logos as a living reality.
Become aware of the central stillness out of which each breath emerges, and into which it returns.
If you can be aware that all movement is supported by stillness, all sound by silence, then you are beginning to experience something of the meaning of Logos.
