He insisted on clearing the table, and again devoted himself to his game of patience: piecing together the map of Paris, the bits of which he'd stuffed into the pocket of his raincoat, folded up any old how. I helped him. Then he asked me, straight out, 'What would you say was the true centre of Paris?' I was taken aback, wrong-footed. I thought this knowledge was part of a whole body of very rarefied and secret lore. Playing for time, I said, 'The starting point of France's roads... the brass plate on the parvis of Notre-Dame.' He gave me a withering look. 'Do you take for me a sap?' The centre of Paris, a spiral with four centres, each completely self-contained, independent of the other three. But you don't reveal this to just anybody. I suppose - I hope - it was in complete good faith that Alexandre Arnoux mentioned the lamp behind the apse of St-Germain-l'Auxerrois. I wouldn't have created that precedent. My turn now to let the children play with the lock. 'The centre, as you must be thinking of it, is the well of St-Julien-le-Pauvre. The 'Well of Truth' as it's been known since the eleventh century.' He was delighted. I'd delivered. He said, 'You know, you and I could do great things together. It's a pity I'm already 'beyond redemption', even at this very moment.' His unhibited display of brotherly affection was of childlike spontaneity. But he was still pursuing his line of thought: he dashed out to the nearby stationery shop and came back with a little basic pair of compasses made of tin. 'Look. The Vieux-Chene, the Well. The Well, the Arbre-a-Liege On either side of the Seine, adhering closely to the line he'd drawn, the age-old tavern signs were at pretty much the same distance from the magic well. 'Well, now, you see, it's always been the case that whenever something bad happens at the Vieux-Chene, a month later - a lunar month, that is, just twenty-eight days - the same thing happens at old La Frite's place, but less serious. A kind of repeat performance. An echo Then he listed, and pointed out on the map, the most notable of those key sites whose power he or his friends had experienced. In conclusion he said, 'I'm the biggest swindler there is, I'm prepared to be swindled myself, that's fair enough. But not just anywhere. There are places where, if you lie, or think ill, it's Paris you disrespect. And that upsets me. That's when I lose my cool: I hit back. It's as if that's what I was there for.

Jacques Yonnet
Pingala pode ser definida como a energia dine¢mica, ativa, masculina, positiva, yang, dentro de nossa personalidade. Ela tem um lado fe­sico e mental. Suas qualidades materiais se£o luz, calor, solar, energia acumulando, criatividade, organizae§e£o, focalizada (centre­peta) e contrativa. O lado mental positivo, dine¢mico, dentro do sistema de Freud e o Eros, o prince­pio do prazer, e no sistema de Jung e a personalidade consciente, o lado racional e discriminativo. Podemos dizer que pingala e a energia psicossome¡tica, aparentemente dirigida, a mente agindo sobre o corpo para motivar os orge£os da ae§e£o, os karmendriyas. Ela e a energia be¡sica da vida. Ida e a energia dentro da personalidade, o qual e passiva, receptiva, feminina, negativa, yin. A um ne­vel fe­sico, ela e escura, fria, lunar, energia de dissipae§e£o, desorganizae§e£o, entropica, expansiva (centre­fuga) e relaxante. No plano mental que Freud chamou Tanatos, o instinto da morte, e Jung chamou de anima, o inconsciente, e­ntimo feminina, emocional, sentimento intuitivo e ne£o discriminatorio, o fundo sobre o qual as diferene§as podem ser vistas e que podem ser unificadas. Este e o aspecto soma fe­sico do homem, onde a energia e dirigida para dentro, e o corpo age sobre a mente. Ida controla os orge£os dos sentidos, ou gyanendriyas, e, portanto, nos de¡ conhecimento e conscieªncia do mundo em que vivemos... Carl Jung expressou as viseµes te¢ntricas quando descreveu a fore§a motriz da auto-realizae§e£o, a qual chamou de 'individuae§e£o', como uma interae§e£o dialetica entre os opostos, iniciando com o conflito e culminando em se­ntese e integrae§e£o. Quando o equile­brio perfeito e alcane§ado, estabilizado e aperfeie§oado, um estado de paz dine¢mico e alcane§ado, que e um paradoxo, uma unie£o de opostos, a se­ntese de fazer e ne£o fazer, uma maneira totalmente nova de perceber e experenciar a vida. Poucos de nos realizam este terceiro estado espiritualizado, e muitos de nos oscilam de um estado a outro. A cada 90 a 180 minutos ida e pingala alternam sua posie§e£o dominante e somente por uns poucos segundos, ou minutos, sushumna entra em existeªncia posse­vel. e‰ a meta de todas as tecnicas de yoga balancear e equilibrar ida e pingala, fore§a da vida e conscieªncia, para que eles se unam em aje±a chakra para criar a luz interna do conhecimento e bem-aventurane§a, e revelar a verdade.
