Running For Release


Running For Release

When: Morning.

Step 1: Run Totally

"Run on the road, starting with half a mile and then one mile and come to at least three miles eventually. Use the whole body. Don't run as if you are in a straitjacket. Run like a small child using the whole body - hands and feet - and breath deeply, from the belly."

Step 2: Sit and Relax

"Sit under a tree, rest, perspire, and let the cool breeze come; feel peaceful. You are simply a throbbing body, an alive body, an organism in tune with the whole - just like an animal.

"The musculature has to be relaxed. If you like swimming, go swimming also - that will help. But that too has to be done as totally as possible. Anything in which you can become totally involved will be helpful. It is not a question of anger or any other emotion; the question is of getting into anything totally. Then you will be able to get into anger and love too. One who knows how to get into anything totally can get into everything totally.

"It is difficult to work with anger directly because it may be deeply repressed; so work indirectly. Running will help much anger and fear to evaporate. When you are running for a long time, and breathing deeply, the mind stops functioning and the body takes over."
