The Practice of Being Present by Luna Lacey

Mindfulness, meditation, and being present are popular topics. Decreased stress and tension, increased energy, clearer thinking, more connection, authentic relationships, better health, sharper memory, lower blood pressure, and less anxiety are all part of the appeal. But to experience these positive effects in our life, a commitment is necessary to start and then sustain a practice of being present. 

Breema offers a three-fold approach that supports us to enter the present moment. Breema leaves nothing out. There are Nine Principles of Harmony to work with the mind, bodywork and self-care exercises to work with the body, and an essential teaching of nonjudgment to work with the feelings.

The only thing you can do is become available…

Don’t think that you are free to be whatever you wish, just like that. In order to become what you truly wish to be, you must follow universal principles, principles of Truth. The only thing you can do is become available, so you can receive truthful knowledge. Even after you receive it, don’t think it’s yours. The moment you claim it’s yours, you lose it. Have you ever seen a firefly? This little insect is very beautiful. It gives light through its tail, and only for a brief second. We can learn two things from it: one, your mind cannot give you light. And two, light can only be created for a tiny second.

Practicing Breema at an Intensive

Breema bodywork, Self-Breema exercises, and the Nine Principles of Harmony are natural expressions of the unifying principle of Existence. They provide ideal support for practicing body-mind connection and the art of being present.

Both new and experienced students from around the world come each year to study at Breema Intensives and to benefit from Breema’s practical approach to living harmoniously. This is what they say, “Practicing Breema gives me this incredible opportunity every time to connect to this wellspring of joy and gratitude. There is so much support to just come back to myself. It helps me in my daily life. It really just enriches my life in so many ways. Seeing and accepting but not judging myself.”

Health means wholeness.

Health means wholeness. You can look at health as a large meadow, a large field. When water flows and reaches every part of that field, it is healthy. When energy flows to every part of our body, we are healthy. When there is a problem, you may begin searching for where the energy hasn’t reached, where it is stuck. But when your diagnosis leads you to a single cause, you’re moving away from the truth. In the interconnectedness and interrelatedness of everything that exists, can you find a single cause for anything? When you look correctly, you find that the cause of any particular thing is everything! That’s why Breema doesn’t diagnose. But to have health, energy does need to flow. So Breema advises us that the best and most effective way to deal with a problem is to increase vitality.

Consciousness grows when you experience that you are conscious.

You may wish to be more conscious, to be present, to be connected. But there is one difficulty—consciousness cannot be developed unconsciously. Consciousness grows when you experience that you are conscious. How can we search for that experience if we’ve never had it? It takes a lot for us to come to the simple fact that we have no idea what consciousness is. It’s harder for us to accept that we are not conscious than to become conscious! Yet no understanding is possible without being conscious.

Striving towards the truth is endless.

The most important aspect of consciousness is the search for the truth. If you think “I have the truth,” that thought belongs to a level of consciousness that is not useful to you. Striving towards the truth is endless. The mountain of development has no peak.

Everything deserves our thanks.

One thing we need to learn in life is to support whatever is supporting us. If we go down this road, our eyes and mind slowly open up, and we see that we’re supported by everything that exists. Then we can take an active posture in relation to this knowledge. We don’t need to make it mental. We can keep it simple. Just saying thank you is mutual support. Do you like your socks? Then just acknowledge you are thankful for them while you’re putting them on. That’s how simple it is. Everything deserves our thanks.

Connection to that which is…

There is something phenomenal about Breema—it can enter into every aspect of human activity. If you are a baker, you can work with the Nine Principles and your bread will be a little different. If you are a carpenter, the home you build is a little different. If you are a mechanic, the car you fix is somehow different. The difference comes from your connection to that which is, because that connection is expressed in your activity. Breema is to make you aware of what you are in reality. To the extent you relate to the reality of yourself, others benefit from you.

The reality of life flows moment after moment.

Everything exists to support everything that exists. This is the direction that leads to true happiness. Not happiness because of “this” or “that”—happiness that’s free from “this” or “that.” When you taste your own existence, it’s as if all your desires are fulfilled. You become free from desire, and therefore, free from fear. Fear and desire are two banks of the river. But the reality of life flows moment after moment, like the water in a river. When we jump into the water, we become free from the banks of the river. What we see doesn’t bother us, because we are in the flow of eternity.
