MESSAGES FROM SHREE VASANT
FROM INTUITIVE GUIDANCE
However, this balance is absent in many people and it manifests as diseases: physical or mental or both.
Incidentally, there is a third channel of energy, which flows through the center of the spinal cord and is called "SUSHUMNA".
This is active only when air flows at the same speed in both nostrils at the same time.
This could give an idea of why many people argue.
a) Some people are very structured,
b) some people are very artistic,
c) some people are very erratic or unpredictable.
d) Some people are very balanced or intuitive like a yogi, who is beyond polarities. Aristotle allegedly said:
The total is not equal to the sum of the parts.
But you might ask: Isn’t that crazy? Well, the term SYNERGY can give some explanation to that.
Anyway, is not everyone right according to her/his point of view?
There are actually many other possibilities besides:
Right, Left, and Center.
The practice of the Fivefold Path (Yajnya, Daan, Tapa, Karma, Swadhyaya) helps us to recognize the opinion of other people and to look beyond ours to expand our Consciousness.
OM SHREE OM
OM TRUTH OM
More Swadhyaya. Someone can say that there is only ONE Truth. Others may say that there are as many truths as there are people trying to express it. But have you noticed that many people argue because they have different truths? This especially happens when people talk about religions or beliefs.
Why are there these differences? According to Swara Yoga, people tend to change the main Swara between 60 and 90 minutes. What is the main Swara? It is the predominant breath that enters and leaves through a nostril. Although we have a nose, we have two nostrils. This Swara science says that:
1) If the predominant breathing is in the right nostril, at that moment, we are more: mathematical, logical, physically active, structured, aggressive, enthusiastic, etc.
2) If the predominant breathing is in the left nostril, at that moment we are more: creative, passive, artistic, mental, etc.
The left nostril is associated with the energy channel (nadi) called "IDA", the right hemisphere, the Parasympathetic Nervous System.
The right nostril is associated with the energy channel "PINGALA" – left hemisphere – the Sympathetic Nervous System.
However, most people tend to breathe more on one side than the other. Therefore, people’s opinions are often polarized: right or left. A normal energy balanced person will have the same breathing time in each alternating nostril.
This "Balance" is a sign of "Health".
