With Prânâyâmâ, we arrive in the heart of the building, of the practice, the philosophy and the metaphysics that is the Yoga. Prânâyâmâ is a discipline which concerns both the breath, the energy and the mental and the microcosm and the macrocosm. We speak about individual breath but also about cosmic breath called SVARA, it is the universal breath which settles(adjusts) all the worlds, all the future and at the same time all the beings.
This breath there becomes the PRÂNÂ quant it gets(touches) the human body.
The discipline of the breath concerns as much the posture as the gestures(movements), as sounds, as mantrâ, as the lights, as the concentrations, as the meditations. In fact, Prânâyâmâ is the art of the non-breath. It is the art to manage to breathe without air(sight), simply in the pure energy. And to arrive in celà, it is necessary to learn to breathe correctly so as to eliminate all the possibilities of tensions and energy blockings bound(connected) to the breath.
In a 1st time(weather), we learn to install(settle) an abdominal breath to stimulate Uddhiyanadhara, the zone included between the navel and the sex. This zone where the energy of the breath nait and where he(it) created the individual and all his future, and all that he(it) is.
Prânâyâmâ, it is the art of the balance, the art of the internal and outside harmony. It is the art of the freedom and the independence of the individual with regard to the world and to the sort(species). It is a way of being connected with the universe.
The breath is a symphony, a quète, a search(research) for balance, for authenticity, for knowledge, for recession(drop) and for immobility.
Prânâyâmâ is also called the MATRA YOGA. Matra wants to say Rhythm.
The breath it is the science, it is the art of the rhythm, what what means that it is not going to involve that to breathe with or without air(sight), but celà is going to imply(involve) a completely essential, often new notion, that is the rhythm.
It is not the second which gives rhythm to the breath. The second is a rhythm which occupies the mental space. All the human beings are settled(adjusted) at the level of their rhythm, at the level of their time(weather), over the second. All our vibratory frequencies, all our frequencies of breath are dependent on this rhythm of the sort(species) that is the second.
The rhythm of Prânâyâmâ, Matra, is a little bit different rhythm which has 2 qualities:
1) He(it) is longer, slower than the second
2) He(it) is personal
They are two esssentiels elements.
The MATRA which gives rhythm, which replaces " the time(weather) and second " is the time(weather) which it is necessary to make the tour(ballot) of the knee with the major and click of the finger. What amounts to 1,5 seconds, 2 seconds.
By practising this rhythm of the MATRA, our space, our time(weather), our internal, intimate mental perception(collection), will be completely different. We shall have a feeling of much bigger space, a much vaster dimension, a much more precise interiority
That's right the MATRA.
From the moment our rhythm is slowed down, we take(bring) out conditionings(packagings) of the sort(species). All which shakes everybody and which is given rhythm over the second, all which worries everybody and which is given rhythm over the second, all which reminds everybody in the same way and which is given rhythm over the second, we are going to realize that at one go, if our rhythm is slower, we extract of all these constraints, all these conditionings(packagings), which makes that all the human beings have the same concerns(preoccupations).
It is not to dissociate itself from the sort(species), indeed on, it is just a question, in the heart, in the center of the sort(species), to find its own autonomy, its own freedom, to release itself from the karma of the sort(species) and from its own karma because this one lives at the rate of second and not at the rate of Matra.
Slowing down, economy, Prânâyâmâ changes everything, because by slowing down the breath, there is a waterfall(stunt) of physiological, energy and mental reactions.
That Prânâyâmâ is big!!!
