TITLE:  Truths of Terasem – The How of Terasem  6.9 – 6.9.6

SUB TITLE:  Yoga: The Power of Breathing

SUMMARY:  The art of breathing is an important part of maximizing the benefits of yoga.  Terasem’s six Connections each include a short yoga session.  The mantras are concise and may seem enigmatically abstract, but are congruent with longer affirmations in the Truths and even more broadly with the Truths as a whole.

Music  – “Earthseed” fades out, as the voice recording begins.

(Fred)  Hi, we’re Fred & Linda Chamberlain, with podcast No. 80 on the Truths of Terasem.  As the Summary states, “The art of breathing is an important part of maximizing the benefits of yoga.  Terasem’s six Connections each include a short yoga session.  The mantras are concise and may seem enigmatically abstract, but are congruent with longer affirmations in the Truths and even more broadly with the Truths as a whole.”

(Linda)  The lead-in Truth for this group (6.9) reads: “Awareness of the Breath of the Multiverse in You, via yoga, connects Terasem to the Multiverse.”  If we focus as we breathe in and out, we become aware of the sensations in our nose, throat and lungs.  But then when we visualize that we are consciously exchanging real world matter with the rest of the Multiverse, our awareness gives us a sense of the universal interconnectedness that we see evolving.

(Fred) Listeners might wonder, does the word Multiverse have a special significance, here?  In the Terasem Connections and in other parts of the Truths the words Multiverse, Universe and Cosmos are used interchangeably, so let’s not take a side trip into discussing possible quantum physics or mathematical elaborations.  Let’s just take this to refer to the basic concept of ‘everything that ever was and ever will be’.

(Linda)  The first element of this expansion is 6.9.1: “Be ready to feel the why of Terasem as well as to cognitively understand it.”  It has four subsections, “Infinite life, Infinite breath, Endless diversity, and All unity and joy”.

(Fred)  I think the single most important part of this message is that humans are emotional machines.  Concepts are slow to spread until they can be felt in the heart.  Then, they can become viral.  But, in order to spread these emotional memes, we have to do more than just conceptualize them for others, we have to feel them, deeply, within ourselves.  That will reach more people than the cold facts, every time.

(Linda) The next Element is, 6.9.2 “Relax during Serenity Period each day, and Transcendental Meditation each Sabbath.”   It’s got a four part set of subsections I’ll read as one sentence, “I am a wave, an endless wave, on an ocean, of energy.”  We visualize ourselves as energy waves in harmony with each other, rolling endlessly into the future.  This is about placing one’s mind into a relaxed state, daily and weekly.  If you don’t stop to smell the roses, mentally, you lose long range focus.

(Fred)  In 6.9.3 we find: “Exchanging breath-energy with the universe allows us to feel the immortal fabric of the Multiverse.”  I think you once said about these Truths, “Hey, this is simple, it’s about infinite life, breath, diversity, unity and joy, and all they’re saying is don’t just think about these things, feel them!”

(Linda)  The two subsections are, “The cosmos is in me; I am in the cosmos”.  They’re a suggested alternative mantra for meditation in one of the six daily Terasem Connections.

(Fred)  True.  6.9.4 is the same way.  Martine Rothblatt quotes 6.9.4 in one of her Yoga videos, in her comments on how one might wish to do the yoga session.  The words are, “Allowing only breath and no thoughts removes the daily obstacles that obscure the purpose of Terasem.”  To me, this is saying that we have to push aside the daily mental clutter, so long range visions stay in focus better, and that’s greatly aided by the ten minute meditations during each of the Connections.

(Linda)  The underlying words in this one represent three more alternative meditation mantras, and they are (1) “My aura is radiant, My aura is so pure” or, (2) “My mind is still, Like a reflecting pond” and, (3) “I am the breath, The breath breathes me.”

(Fred) Just to clarify, here’s how these mantras are used.  In the last pair, for example, you’d slowly say “I am the breath” four times during a slow inhale, and then “The breath breathes me” four times on the exhale.  These aren’t deep thoughts, in fact their very purpose is to help the mind remain in as quiet a state as possible.  The chants in Buddhism, for example, are often just meaningless sounds, not actual words at all.

(Linda)  6.9.5 says: “Train yourself to stretch in ways that vitalize the unique energy patterns that are the Qi of I,” and the underlying words are, “Come along… Transcend… Come to Terasem.”  In this one, the tones and vibrations in facial muscles and the throat stimulate endocrine glands in the upper forebrain.

(Fred)  True.  Dharma Singh Khalsa’s book, Meditation as Medicine, which we’ve discussed before, is very clear on that.  This is not just a call to attempt to draw others to Terasem, although from a surface viewpoint it could be taken that way.  It’s actually part of the unique yoga practice that Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa, working with Martine Rothblatt, developed for the Terasem Connections.  This mantra was adapted from ancient Indian practice, using English words that create the right kinds of vibrations.

(Linda)  We’re at the last Element of the day, 6.9.6, which tells us, “Happy Yoga is for all vitological life, biological as well as cybernetic, for breathing is emulatable.”  And the words are, “I bow before My highest self.  All consciousness Is one.”  The “I bow before my highest self” is a translation from an ancient Hindu group of words that do the endocrine stimulating thing, aren’t they?  I seem to remember that this one is related to “Ong – Namo… Guru Dev – Namo…”  Does that sound right?

(Fred)  That’s how I remember it.  It has a profound meaning, though, in the sense that only if two people are “conscious” of each other, meaning deeply aware, are they “in touch”, and here, reciprocity of consciousness is essential.  It only takes one small step from that to envision a day when as Terasem evolves, this interconnectivity will expand to signify a mutual awareness of each of us for the others.  With our biological substrates, as we are now, this is difficult to conceive, much less visualize, but we do expect to transcend those limitations shortly after we emerge into states of cyberconsciousness, true?

(Linda)  That’s the way I picture it.  Now, let’s preview next week’s podcast by reading the Truths from that group in their entirety.  They’re extremely short, and they flow as if a short group of affirmations, but we’ll have a great deal to say about them.  Next week, the last podcast of the year, may carry more weight as to the individual survival of you listeners than you can imagine, at this point!

(Fred)  I’ll read them.  They begin with 6.10 and what follows goes all the way through to 6.10.6.  “Life is so queer, with its twists and turns, as all of us eventually learns.  Lots can go wrong, and you’ll be hard hit, so learn to rest, but don’t ever quit.  Each win is failure turned inside out, the silver tint of the clouds of doubt.  Adapt to your task, though walls seem high.  Remember success needs you to try.  No hit is too hard to give up the fight.  See victory is ours and we need your might.”

(Linda)  I love that sequence of words, and what we’ll say about them next week will set the stage for the New Year, 2012, when we will start at the beginning of the Truths of Terasem.

(Fred)  We need your strength in helping to build this future based on geoethical technology.  Find out more about joining Terasem at terasemfaith.net. And don’t forget, Terasem has a priority list; those who join earlier are most likely to make the jump to cyberspace sooner.  The longer you wait, the longer the line will get!

(Linda) Be part of this exciting future, start building your mindfile at either CyBeRev.org or LifeNaut.com. And you can create your personal history or autobiography, to be uploaded to CyBeRev.org by using the LifePact interview form.  Go to Terasemfaith.net and go to Mindfile Building, about half way down the page.

(Fred) Remember, there are no fees for building or storing your mindfile.  And if you want to create a BioFile by preserving your DNA, you can do that at LifeNaut.com, very inexpensively, too.

(Linda)  For those of you who love games, Mike Clancy, at Terasem, has created the new maze-based, mindfile game for the Android. It’s addictive because the difficulty ramps up quickly with multiple layers of challenges.  While you are trying to build motor neurons inside a brain, plaques are obstructing your path and you have to avoid macrophages that are hunting you down!  Check it out on PersonalityMD.com.

(Fred)  And I’d like to invite everyone to discover, if you haven’t already, my favorite blog:  mindclones.blogspot.com.  Martine Rothblatt will treat you to fascinating discussions about mindclones, mindfiles and mindware that will take you far, far beyond what we are able to just sample lightly in these podcasts.

(Linda) You can find the text version of these podcasts at truthsofterasem.wordpress.com.  And, if you’ve been enjoying the music that we use on this podcast series, it’s called Earthseed.  It’s the Terasem Anthem.  It was written by Martine Rothblatt, who also plays the flute and the keyboard.  If you’d like to experience that music in a video, with spectacular astronomical artwork, go to the Join! tab on the terasemfaith.net website.
