Total Duration: 30 minutes
- Sit in a relaxed way.
- Close your eyes.
- Watch your breath – the incoming breath becoming the outgoing breath or the outgoing breath taking the turn into the incoming breath.
- Be aware of the neutral space where the breath takes the turn.
- This is the time when you are flooded with energy and intelligence, during the gap between inhaling and exhaling, and then again before inhaling.
Sometimes even a single desire can bring life to you. For example, you may be lying on the bed over the weekend, but you don’t feel like getting up. Suddenly you may remember some friend whom you wanted to see. This single thought can bring your whole body alive. You will jump out of bed and be ready to run. Whenever you are flooded with energy, be aware that it is happening only in this neutral zone.
In the same way, when something is taken away from you and you reconcile yourself to it, you are flooded with intelligence. If you lose something, immediately you are given some message, some understanding about life, and that becomes your intelligence. Be aware when you are flooded with intelligence.
In the neutral zone, you are flooded with energy and intelligence.
If you can bring your awareness to these two zones, the whole day you will be constantly flooded with energy. When you watch both the gaps of your breath, when you are aware of both the gaps, you will be constantly flooded with energy and intelligence.
If you go a little deeper, you will understand one more important thing: every moment you have both thought and energy. The whole binary system of zero and one is based on only this duality of thought and energy, energy and thought, thought and energy, energy and thought – the two are directly related.
Actually, for a moment you will be flooded with iccha shakti, power of desire. The next moment you will be flooded with kriya shakti, power of action. One moment you will be flooded with energy, the next moment you will be flooded with intelligence. Constantly these two play the game. These are also the constituents of the whole cosmos – matter and energy.
Constantly in your inner space, matter and energy are dancing. If you can be aware of the gap, you will experience the eternal consciousness.
The power of desire and action are both dancing in your inner space. If you can be aware of the gap, you will achieve the jnana shakti or power of wisdom. The energy is constantly enjoying itself, expressing itself in your inner space. Just be a little aware of the gap and you will be flooded with the divine consciousness.
