Is Your Garden Hose In a Knot?

ADI DA SAMRAJ: Think of the descending current as a garden hose running from the top of your head to your feet or to the base of the body, with water running through it. When you pick up a garden hose and twist it, the water stops. Release it a little bit, and the water runs a little bit. 
The channel is supposed to be simply open, but by tendency it is constricted to one or another degree under the various circumstances of life, whether those circumstances are acknowledged to be external to you or internal and local to the body. This line of force is tending to be constricted to one degree or another, and it is rarely simply open.
When it is simply open, you feel good, and not just physically, but emotionally, altogether. You have a sense of well-being. When you have a sense of well-being, this current that registers itself in the frontal line of the body is open. When you do not feel completely well, it is constricted to one degree or another. 

And when you feel rotten, it is as if you had tied a knot in the garden hose. 
You can feel that knot throughout the frontal line. 
You will perhaps especially feel it over the solar plexus.

If you are not Happy in your feeling, not given over to the living and Ultimate principle, then perhaps you will notice that you experience a more or less chronic sense of contraction over the solar plexus, and a feeling of weakness also, as if you had a hole in your navel. In that case, there is weakness, there is tightness, there is a cramp, there is discomfort there, there is disorientation altogether, a sense of being out of balance.
All these symptoms are the result of a very simple mechanism of contraction in the frontal line of force. The contraction is registered especially over the solar plexus because the battery of the body is the great region of the solar plexus, including the lower abdomen. You must therefore become sensitive to how this frontal mechanism works, how it changes in reaction to external circumstances and local or internal circumstances.
You must hear me first of all. You must awaken, through hearing, to self-observation, self- insight, awareness of how you operate as a contracting personality. Then you must see. You must become emotionally converted. 
You must, with the total feeling of the being or the submission of the total body-mind, enter into sympathy with That Which is Transcendental and All-Pervading, and begin to practice on the basis of hearing and seeing. 
In other words you must live or animate the body-mind in all its relations and functions in such a way that the living force is permitted to course freely in the body-mind without obstruction.
