Other words you can be mindful of the breath in the eyes
I can't recall reading like this anywhere in sutta.
Do you have some Sutta support?
I understand the physical eye is the body (Kaya)
The subtle eye has the perception and feeling, not in an out-breath.
Assāsapassāsā is in- and outbreathing. It is not the air you cultivate or feel how it touches the skin. It is the inbreath and outbreath, 2 things which are within the organ as of behind the receptors knowing changes before contact happen.
Other words you won't even know the internal breath(what is regulated by ordinary breathing functions) unless you have gotten from head to the body, that is by ceasing the eye consciousness, the nama
there, contact ceases namarupa ceases.
then what next is you need get the contact with the rupa that is you start fabricate without contact you won't recognize fabrication and if you don't recognize fabrication you won't able to break the defilement(asava, asava too is sankhara what is to be ceased)
It is interpretation of a Sutta mostly on what possible assāsapassāsā
could mean, so by that i believe i don't need put disclaimers on in every post that "i think".
