September 26, 2002: Aim for No Breathing

Master Ni: “Reverse breathing is for advanced students. But I aim for no breathing. That only for students of the Golden Flower.”

Me: “Not for martial or health?”

Ni: “Useful. But they no understand. How do you stop breathing?”

Shrug shoulders: “Meditation?”

Ni: “Helps, but no. Breathing tied to desires. Neutralize desires and breathing naturally stops. Easy to say. Hard to do. But worth the effort.”

Me: “Stop breathing and pass through the Door.”

Ni: “Without desire. So good.”
