Practice Pranayama and you will plough thru the vast sea of life like a giant dreadnought.
Learn Pranayama–practice Pranayama, and be master of yourself and your circumstances.

THE IDENTITY OF CONTRARIES
A keeper of monkeys,” replied Tzu Chi, “said with regard to their rations of chestnuts, that each monkey was to have three in the morning and four at night. But at this the monkeys were very angry, so the keeper said they might have four in the morning and three at night, with which arrangement they were all well pleased. The actual number of the chestnuts remained the same, but there was an adaptation to the likes and dislikes of those concerned. Such is the principle of putting oneself into subjective relation with externals.
“Wherefore the true sage, while regarding contraries as identical, adapts himself to the laws of Heaven. This is called following two courses at once.
THE EARTH BREATH
Others I could tell of, too, who had their moment of awe when the spirit made its ancient claim on them.
