The water rises, passes, falls, and runs zigzag, and stands if held. So is breath. Every above said action of breath has a meaning and has a peculiar effect, as even water varies in its power and magnetism while going through the above said directions. Water is a tonic, and breath is life itself. No tonic can be greater and better than breath. A spiritually evolved person's presence, therefore, brings about a cure in cases where all remedies fail. Water is the necessity of life, and breath the only condition for living. Without it life is impossible. Water falls as a rain from above; so breath is from above also, though from another dimension. Water rises as vapors. So breath rises with gasses, also with joys or depressions. Pure water is health-giving, pure breath gives life. Water partakes of all things mixing with it; so does breath.
