Breathing - practising to make it deep and slow

Breathing is one of life’s prerequisites. All living beings breathe, whether or not they have lungs. It is such a natural process that even in humans it is unconscious most of the time, which is why they breathe badly. They breathe too quickly, without giving the pure air time to go deep down into the lungs to replace the polluted air. So they must learn to breathe slowly, deeply, and even from time to time to hold the air for a few seconds before releasing it. Why? So that it can be ‘chewed’. Because the lungs know how to chew air just as the mouth knows how to chew food. Each in-breath is like a mouthful of new energy, so you must give the lungs the time to take it in, so that the whole organism can benefit. If so many people are tired, anxious, irritable, it is because they do not know how to nourish themselves with air: they reject it immediately without assimilating it. They breathe only with the upper part of the lungs, so the polluted air cannot be replaced by pure air. Deep breathing is a very healthy exercise that you should consider practising, as it allows energies to be renewed.
