An area where the breath is not going into is either not properly adjusted or there lies your blockage. Like this we use the postures to understand and locate our blockages. Through the use of the breath, where the breath is hindered, adjustments have to be made. In order to be observant, all kinds of software running in the head have to first be quieted. In order for us to be present, I have to eradicate all disturbance; disturbance of mind getting stuck in some pattern. This is the exploration of our being. Some thoughts or thought patterns are recurrent. It’s like the same CD playing over and over. Recognition of this, seeing it, that’s enough, just seeing it. So the CD, doesn’t continue to play without being heard. Often this is a background noise in which we live; all these programs, not one, not two, but many playing all together. Detect this to be present. And only when you’re present are you going to use your time in bringing about balance. Those softwares, those CD’s continuously playing, it’s them that influence our breath. When we become free, our breath becomes harmonious. Every CD playing, every software that is active creates tightness and tension. Those truly are the things that matter to us. When I see it, I catch it red-handed in operation. Now and again and again, thus detected, seeing, it becomes shaky. Our job is just to see it; to see all this happening. That’s it, nothing else. To start to have some aversion, anger, non-wanting or even hatred gives it even more power to grow. We need to see these things that interrupt our balance. When shall we do that, but in the asana practice?
