Post title:  "to be actualized by the myriad things" (Dogen)

(Dec 16 2010 at 10:04 AM)

 

 

It's my perspective that the two respirations, cranial-sacral and pulmonary, utilize the place of occurrence of consciousness to impact the fascial structure and open the ability to feel as necessary. There is a stretch in existence as consciousness takes place: the stretch of sitting, standing, walking, or lying down, for example. The occurrence of consciousness leads the balance of the body to impact the stretch that is already in existence when we wake, until the moment when the occurrence of consciousness ceases to impact the stretch in existence, and we sleep. To realize the ability to feel necessary to the extent of each movement of breath is "to be actualized by the myriad things" through the placement of consciousness; consciousness takes place spontaneously, and the impact and activity associated with the place of occurrence of consciousness aligns the body to allow feeling as necessary to the movement of breath.
