The cause of feverish breath that takes away peace of mind is attachment. Then you are in pieces and you fall prey to misery.

Before you get scattered too much, gather yourself and rid your breath of feverishness through surrender and Sadhana (spiritual practices). Unfortunately, most people do not notice what is happening until it is too late.

When someone is drowning in the ocean of attachments, surrender is the life jacket they can put on and wait for the rescue team. Without fighting the attachments, observe the feverish breath and go to the cool place of silence within.  Your first step is to direct your attachment to the Knowledge, to the Divine.  Your non-attachment to the mundane is your charm.

Your attachment to the Divine is your beauty.

Excerpts from the book An Intimate Note to the Sincere Seeker by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
