“This will transform your life.“
Practically every advertisement, we see today promises personal, mystical, financial, even spiritual, transformation.
I don't deny them.
What we have to bear in mind though, is that the knowledge that is going to transform us, is only as good as the use to which it is put.
You hear it, said all the time that knowledge is Power.
Knowledge is potential power.
It’s by bringing our potential to what we know, or to what we have, that allows us discover and exert the power.
Breathing can be transformational. Over 55 years, I’ve seen people actively put it to practice and reap great benefits.
I’ve also seen people learn about it, read about it, write about it, talk about it, plan it, with beautifully drawn maps and preparations, and then relegate them to the drawer.
Again, it’s the use to which the knowledge, the writings, the plannings, and the preparations are put, that brings about the transformation.
The transformational power that regulated breathing brings to the nervous system alone, makes it an unrivalled practice to study and to do.
Whatever you do to bring your fitness and wellness and your life, do it frequently.
However great, or however small, the result may be, bear in mind that it will be inevitable.
Inevitable. No exaggeration.
Start with your breathing exercises.
Bring them into your life as part of who you are, not just something you do.
Many people look on fundamental health and wellness as something that is “nice to have“.
It is more, much more, than that.
If we are unfit, out of shape, even moderately unwell, life is hard, hard going.
When we are fundamentally fit, healthy, and well, we will do things, try things, and achieve things that would otherwise be outside the realm of possibility.
So whatever your preferred activity is, do it.
