Breathing Deep combines words and images to create 40 ‘invitations’, each one inviting us to see the world in the power of Jesus’ resurrection. Each reflection combines gentleness with a provocative edge, challenging us to live in the spirit of resurrection when everything seems to gravitate towards death and destruction. The resurrection of Jesus has always been understood as a glimpse into the true nature of reality. This powerful series of daily meditations invites us to step into the new world brought about by the first Easter.

Not illustrated. 1920 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER VIII. THE WILL POWER TO CHOOSE "Many times, in fact almost invariably, the mental attitude we take toward anything of an unfriendly or seemingly unfriendly nature that enters our lives determines its actual effect upon us." Ralph Waldo Trine. "Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, if there be any praise, think on these things." Phil. 4:8. The world is rapidly learning that the ideals held by the individual react upon his physical being to the extent of practically controlling his health. In the future, health will be studied more from the psychological point of view than from the physiological. The study of the relationship of states of mind to health will bring forth new light on the laws of the physical plane. "Be what you would have," said a great and wise man. The highest ideals which we have, bear a direct relationship to our being. Our ideals hold the transforming power, the power to make over, to unfold character. Thought moulds the physical--we grow into the likeness of the things which we are constantly thinking about. Our ideals awaken our finer being-- our great within, and who can tell the result. No one can set a limit to the possibilities of unfoldment in any one. Thus is life worth living and glorious in development, for in his divine storehouse each one has the source of supply. He must awaken to the laws of demand and supply and realize that the key to that storehouse is desire-- intense desire to become that which his ideals vision. Then will he grow, and not until his desire for the higher law rules the objective man, will he be able to touch the...
This is Robert Fried's third book on the crucial role of breathing and hyperventilation in our emotional and physical health. The first, The Hyperventilation Syndrome (1987), was a scholarly monograph, and the second, The Breath Connection (1990a), was a popular version for the lay reader. This book combines the best features of both and extends Dr. Fried's seminal work to protocols for clinical psychophysiology and psy chiatry. Hoping to avoid misunderstanding, he has taken systematic care to introduce relevant electrical, physiological, and psychological concepts in operational language for the widest possible professional audience. Any clinician not thoroughly experienced in respiratory psycho physiology and biofeedback will leave these pages with profound new insight and direction into an aspect of our liveswhich we innocently take for granted as "common sense"-the role of breathing in health and illness. Einstein viewed such common sense as "that set of prejudices we acquired prior to the age of eighteen." I am impressed that Dr. Fried mirrors Einstein's uncanny genius in not accepting the obvious breathing is not "common sense" but, rather, is a pivotal psycho physiological mechanism underlying all aspects of life.

We start life with a breath, and the process continues automatically for the rest of our lives. Because breathing continues on its own, without our awareness, it does not necessarily mean that it is always functioning for optimum mental and physical health. The opposite is true often. The problem with breathing is that it seems so easy and natural that we rarely give it a second thought. We breathe: we inhale, we exhale. What could be simpler? But behind that simple act lies a process that affects us profoundly. It affects the way we think and feel, the quality of what we create, and how we function in our daily life. Breathing affects our psychological and physiological states, while our psychological states affect the pattern of our breathing. For example, when anxious, we tend to hold our breath and speak at the end of inspiration in a high-pitched voice. Depressed people tend to sigh and speak at the end of expiration in a low-toned voice. A child having a temper tantrum holds his or her breath until blue in the face. Hyperven tilation causes not only anxiety but also such a variety of symptoms that patients can go from one specialty department to another until a wise clinician spots the abnormal breathing pattern and the patient is successfully trained to shift from maladaptive to normal breathing behavior.
