19 Sep SATRIA NUSANTARA – The Art of Breathing
A traditional skill of Indonesia, which belongs to the group of therapeutic exercises for promoting the health of the entire nation regardless of age. The creator of these skills is Dr. Maryanto, a Master in Martial Arts who through his rich experience in kung fu, karate, and aikido in meditation realised that the combination of movement and breathing skills has an effective impact on the overall condition of human.
Knowledge, combined with achieved results, authoritatively opens the way to life values, so Satria Nusantara has found its place in every family of huge Indonesia (18,000 islands) incredibly fast.
Through SN, with joint effects, we recognise the essence and the point of meeting of the East and West, the point where science and spirituality meet each other. Breathing as an automatic skill, undeservedly unrecognised in the West, while in Eastern civilizations it is used to master self-control, self-knowledge and self-healing.
Controlled breathing is conscious breathing. When we decide to establish guided inhalation and exhalation, we must inevitably pay attention to the organs involved in the breathing process.
An adventure begins with the necessity of getting familiar with the structure of organs and their connections with breathing. The category that we unnoticeably skip in the West – TIME, is also a topic we will pay attention to, because indisputably we are all dependant on it, but we try to avoid it.
CONSCIOUSNESS as an increasingly popular term seeks its place in explanation, not allowing it to be confused with intelligence or attention due to the lack of knowledge.
Finally, spirituality – as we wish the mature stage of it – we will rely on parsing the word itself until we see its root – SPIRIT.
Vitality we feel and we imperceptibly bypass very day until the moment of the first obstacle, we do call LIFE.
Are we ready to change our habits and bring little magic into our lives that will open the door to a well-guarded chapter – conscious life through conscious breathing as a way to achieve inner satisfaction and peace?
The Buddha smiles at us in meditation, so does Confucius, while saints wave carelessly and with ease from the other side. What makes them happy, how easily did they carry their lives, regardless of all the troubles they faced?
The art of breathing leads us to an absolute phenomenon – the art of living. Someone experiences life in different colours through the prism of painter, a musician experiences it through harmony or cacophony, a doctor through a set of good or bad symptoms, and a sage from the East through a set of experiences in time. Freedom as a category determines and creates our way of living and oxygen is given to us all for free.
FREE WILL + CONSCIOUS BREATHING: THE ART OF LIVING
One’s functional endurance to life and physical challenges belongs to the domain of physiology, so in the following text we will deal with scientific explanations of functions in the body through various everyday activities that we mostly unconsciously experience. Considering the social interaction and the relationships we create, different emotions appear as special categories that determine our further destiny.
Both their intensity and the quality of our life depend on it. Each emotion can be measured with precise devices and thus colour the organ or group of organs with positive or negative charge.
With long-term recurrence, it often introduces very clear pathologies that can be divided according to a precise scheme of one’s energy-emotional structure.
Awareness of emotions and finding their connection with diseases is an act of our freedom, and the art of their transformation is the level of subconsciousness of one who is aware of capacities our body has.
Satria Nusantara, a simple technique of held breathing and physical movements of the body, leads to the transformation of the negative charge into a positive one, and in 12 days it raises the vital capacity to a higher level.
An ordinary man from the East is not familiar with science and he is alive simply because he does not doubt its origin. He recognizes the gift of life as a drop of water that he maintains with care and attention anytime, using what he has: Consciousness and Breath.
In conscious breath, a sage recognises the Creator who enriched both the plant and animal kingdom using his breath, while sharing lightness and simplicity in symbiosis with them.
We dilate using our breath, we expand in space, we take our place.
Do you want a shallow, depthless, short breath? Breathing is what reveals us, the quality of breathing reveals our nature.
We can be bright, attractive, well-dressed… If our breasts are jumping fast, our mouths are constantly half-open, we are hiding while yawning, we use pumps, nose drops, under which excuse do we justify our actions? Allergies, asthma, genes, polluted air, anatomical deviation…
Shallow breath warns us to open ourselves to the full capacity of life and learn to use the lungs to its maximum. Once we feel how sweet a full breath is and satisfaction after that, nothing will make us forget to breathe carefully.
Prolonged inhalation and exhalation stimulate the functions of the parasympathetic nervous system, which indisputably begins to establish satisfaction by engaging “positive” substances, and when you add to it apnea – breath holding teaching and accumulation of CHI ENERGY, a change in life habits is inevitable.
It is impossible to determine the age of someone from the East. They are long-lived, vital, flexible, mobile, smiling… The process of regeneration is a constant function that is constantly stimulated by exercise and breathing. Without any creams and serums.
322 BC. Aristotle began with the science of movement (kinesiology) and importance of exercises for maintaining health. MOVEMENT AS A MEDICINE.
Up to this time, his successors try to reach the scientific explanations of mechanics of physical movements and mechanism of movement of the human body. But they have not still explained the existence of the energy of the Spirit, whose presence in each atom dictates the movement, although without a clear definition of what it is made of.
2020. How far have we come? We have reached the culmination of technological development, but still have not learnt the art of simple living.
