Bringing Health Into Perspective by Alexandra Johnson

Today I was with a client. He came for Breema bodywork, but also had a question and needed a medical consultation. I wanted to answer his question accurately, but in a way that would actually support his healing, and not deepen identification with his body’s condition.

I offered him medical advice, and we agreed on a treatment plan. After he received Breema bodywork, he mentioned how much the session had helped him to release tension, quiet the mind, and harmonize his emotions. He also said that his attitude about his health was improved. He felt like it was finally ‘in perspective.’ He was still experiencing physical symptoms, but he was no longer draining his emotional energy.

In the absence of fear and worry…

You have Body Comfortable in the absence of fear and worry. Why are we always worried? Because of the thoughts that pass through our mind. When you’re not experiencing your body inhaling and exhaling, it means you are having thoughts. You can’t tell your mind “Don’t think!” and so you can’t order yourself to not worry, to not be afraid. But you can say to your mind, “You have a job. Your job is to stay with the process of inhalation and exhalation.”

Real Help Comes From Being Present by Luna Lacey

A few years ago, I was working at a community college in the financial aid department. I called my job “the dream killer.” I had to meet with students who were struggling both academically and financially, look them in the eye, and tell them they were not going to get financial aid, to pay their tuition or to cover the costs of living while in school. These students had one thing in common—they needed help, real help.

Everyday was full of stress. Many of the students had come into the academic system not knowing how to fill out papers correctly, not knowing the questions to ask, or not knowing that meeting deadlines was crucial to their success. Without the things I had learned by studying Breema, the constant tension would have left me constantly short-tempered and frustrated.

The beginning and end come together…

What happens when consciousness develops and fulfills its potential? The beginning and end come together, just as they do in physical evolution. The seed becomes a tree, the tree grows branches, it flowers, gives fruit, and the fruit give seeds. We come from within the Absolute. Our ultimate evolution is back to the Absolute.

Every cell of the body is working together….

When we have the definite taste of I have a body or there is a body, there is no longer any need to emphasize one part of the body over any other part. That taste is a knowledge which is equally the property of every cell of the body. Every cell of the body is working together, and the knowledge of this unity is your consciousness. When you are connected to this knowledge, the energy you use to do any activity is continually replenished.

What is the foundation on which all meaning and purpose are built?


A foundation is something that things are built upon. What if you want to apply this word to the meaning and purpose of your life? What is the foundation on which all meaning and purpose are built? You can’t say your foundation is your body, because we all know the body is temporary. How about your mind? The mind is a box that we put everything we hear and read, everything we see on the Internet, and all our education into. So the mind can’t be the foundation, because it’s the mind of mass consciousness, which is the expression of the chaotic state of unconscious life. How about your feelings? They can’t be your foundation, because they constantly swing between like and dislike. A real foundation must be something other than your mind, feelings, and body. Every single thing that exists is a combination of two things—form and meaning. When we look at the manifested universe, we are really looking at two universes—the universe of form, which is observable, and the universe of meaning, which is realizable. Both of these have to be included in a real foundation.
