What is the force that gives rise to life?

Last week we briefly touched upon prana.  Prana is pure self. It is pure consciousness. This is the force that pushes the soul to reincarnate. It is the vital energy that brings everything into being. It lives in the organs of your body and unites all parts of the body into one unit. The soul attracts prana to the mind and the mind attracts prana to the body. It is the controlling force of the entire universe and beyond.

Everything exists due to Prana, just as everything exists due to energy. It is the vital force behind the movement of energy that causes all of creation. Prana is simply the movement that gives rise to breath, but is not the breath.. What causes us to take the first and last breath and all the breaths in-between? Prana- it is the life force.   It can take on any quality without losing its purity.

Prana gives vital energy to our bodies and also gives us the power to think. It is pure and simple and yet gives birth to the complexities of life. It is pure subconscious movement giving rise to conscious thought. Let’s take a breath and begin.

Prana and the mind move naturally. Rising and falling, appearing and disappearing. This movement is commonly referred to as thinking. Prana and mind exist together with prana being the principle of movement and the mind the principle of intelligence. All action requires Prana, just as all action requires at some level intelligence. However, this intelligence is not something that we measure like an IQ. This is the fifth layer of our being known as the intellectual self.

For the next week just pay attention to the movement of thoughts through your mind and the movement of your breath. Prana remember is simply the movement of energy. What you do with this energy is determine by how your soul chooses to walk upon the earth.  You must quiet the mind to hear your soul.  It will guide you. Use your breath to quiet your mind, listen and then walk softly, kindly and with compassion for all of life. In this you will be wise.

Health Tip- think blue

Cobalt – the color blue - a chemical element found in the earth’s crust – it is also an essential trace mineral that acts as a coenzyme and is associated with B-12. We need B-12 to aid in fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Cobalt is also needed to produce red blood cells. A deficiency in B-12 can cause problems with our nervous system. The best sources of B-12 Cobalt are found in animal kidney and livers. Other good sources are red meat, salmon, egg yolks, soy and sardines.  This is an essential vitamin-mineral so think blue and take care of your health.
