KEX #2: Responsibility

Reference: KEX #1: Detachment


The system of the body and the mind may be referred to as the “energy body.” The physical body forms the nucleus of this energy body. The energy body is much bigger than the physical body just like the atom is much bigger than its nucleus. It is true that you are neither your body, nor your mind; therefore, you are not this energy body either. But you are responsible for this energy body.

You come closest to being the “center” of this energy body. To establish yourself stably as the center, you must bring the energy body in complete harmony within itself.

This second exercise “KEX #2” is same as “KEX #1” except for the thoughts that you mentally say to yourself (see below). Therefore, “KEX #1,” (see the reference above), is the prerequisite to this exercise.


The Posture

Sit in a straight-backed chair with feet flat on the floor and arms resting comfortably in the lap. The knees are positioned parallel to the shoulders. This alternate posture allows the body to remain stably erect even in deep state of concentration. During this exercise, focus your attention mildly between the eyebrows.


The Exercise

In this exercise you simply BE there and face all perceptions, sensations, feelings and emotions without avoiding, resisting, suppressing, or denying them.

In addition you do the following.
… (1) Inhale and exhale gently, slowly.
… (2) With each inhalation, mentally say to yourself: “I am responsible for the body.” The inhalation should last the whole duration of that thought.
… (3) With each exhalation, mentally say to yourself: “I am responsible for the mind.” The exhalation should last the whole duration of that thought.

Do this exercise for at least 20 minutes at a stretch so that your energies get properly organized,

OPTIONAL: You may do this exercise while walking on a treadmill at a gentle pace. Make sure you have a safety cord attached to you, in case you stumble. Your body is generating more energy on a treadmill and that helps organize the energies better.


Please Note

This is an experimental exercise, which is a natural extension of KEX #1.

Do this exercise for 20 minutes, twice a day, for 1 week.  After that you may extend this exercise by one week at a time (twice a day) till you are satisfied with what this exercise may do.

You may then either go to a new exercise that is available, or go back to a previous exercise already completed, to consolidate the results.

When returning to a previous exercise always do it for at least one week, and then extend it by one week at a time (twice a day) till you are satisfied.
