In the west we have become speedy people, and so our inner wind “Lung” rises.
This practice is very important for westerns, as we are very alert and conscious
…and busy! The practice is simple.
Be aware of the tension in the body, take a gently breath
and hold it down to below the navel for a few seconds.
Then exhale gently leaving a little of this breath at the navel.
Of course our breath does not go down there, but the energy does.
Then we feel relaxed and lighter.
It’s worth a try. Do it until you feel more relaxed.
And, do it when you meet someone who pushes your button
and you feel tension arising…just a couple of breathes stop any reaction.
