Blog: Son of Truth of Self
by Chef JeM

From Depression to Bliss in Seven Steps!

The power of the breath is by and large mostly untapped by people. Breath has so much to offer us, starting with tranquilizing the mind.

In light of the previous post:

one thing I am deeply convinced of is the need to care for our psyche. That is why I have also recently created
the "Psyche & Health" Blog.[1]

I don't think we have to become "psychologists" in order to care for our psyches. I do think we have to be radically honest with ourselves, tell ourselves the truth about what is going on inside us at any given moment. That "truth of self" alone can make a difference.

Maybe the truth is that we are in pain and secretly suffering because we don't feel the freedom to tell the truth about the way it really is with us. "Truth" is not "beauty". We, our life and/or our relations with others does not have to look "pretty" before we tell the truth of self, life and other. However, maybe we need to "catch our breath" before we feel we can begin our radical truth telling.

John Selby has a wonderful book called "Seven Masters, One Path" that I have gained much relief with by practicing the unique, progressive meditation sequence he presents. It all starts with the breath, with breathing freely!

My newest housemate very recently reminded me of this work with his commentary that he shared with me and which impressed me to want to have him share that with me again when I can have this book in my hand so that I can add what he says as a "footnote". There is an intimate relationship between the breath and the psyche! From awareness of our breathing we can better access a calm mind. That's the second step of the seven-fold meditation! It only gets better and better through the rest of the steps!

In my sitting earlier this afternoon I noted: "breath by breath" (a breath-awareness version of "moment by moment"). There is a song I use to sing with others that began: "Breath by breath we breath the Lord ...". The song makes reference to John 20:22 for which I will quote, starting from verse 21:

Then Jesus said to them (his disciples) again, Peace be to you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you. (22:) And when He had said this, He breathed into them and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit."

Not only is the breath intimately connected with our psyche it is connected with our spirit as well. Focusing on the breath brings awareness into this connection. The more awareness - the more the connection can be realized.

I find that especially true when there is conscious self-talk that can be interspersed between the breaths. Self-talk is something everyone does whether or not they realize it. Self-talk becomes a powerful tool for transformation when it is made conscious and our intention is to speak only the truth to ourselves.

In addition to breathing -

"A 2007 research study found that taking cold showers routinely can help treat depression symptoms often more effectively than prescription medications. That’s because cold water triggers a wave of mood-boosting neurochemicals which make you feel happy."[2]
