Sahaja Yoga - further details



SAHAJA YOGA - Sahaja means"born with you": Yoga means "union" These ancient words tell us that within each of us, inside us, we can be united with Pure Knowledge, i.e. the truth about "life", its meaning, and the way to achieve our true potential, happiness, and the joy of life. Many of us wonder if there is "Divinity", if God exists.Sahaja Yoga Pure Meditation gives you a new Awareness to approach these questions, in a wise and humble way. Actually, Sahaja Yoga is an Individual experience for each of us, but, of course, there is only one" truth".

There is only one Reality. This is a Catch-22 situation- how will you know reality, unless you are connected to it- are joined to it? So, in a very simple way, with a very simple exercise, we can be connected. It works also in a simple, straightforward way. We have an eternal power within us called the "Spirit", situated within our heart; it represents Divine Love. It is not attached to anything, it is the purest of the pure. The other power we have is also very pure, and very precious, it is called "the Kundalini", meaning it is in a coil, and sits in our Sacrum- the Triangular bone at the base of the spine. For many generations this power has been sitting, waiting in a potential state. These are important times- sometimes called The Age Of Aquarius, The Age Of Enlightenment, etc. When a human being starts seeking the answers to these mystical , time-honoured questions, a subtle message is triggered to say that this human being is ready to be joined to the Truth, to Reality, to his/her own Divinity. At the always-free Classes, a Seeker can get a simple explanation of this human "Subtle System", and is shown how to raise his/her own Kundalini, and importantly, how to start his/her Meditations.

These Meditations are not long, drawn-out, painful affairs, but brief and very joyous, again, "simple"- interludes of thoughtless awareness, of joyful periods of silence and peace. They are very "healing" times of about 10 minutes, where you will feel completely refreshed. In Sahaja Yoga, Meditation is the most important area of "growth". It is not in learning and studying new information. So, people who come along, gain this new awareness for no cost: the main practice is just to sit down for 10 minutes twice a day.Let all mental activity go- be it worry, or intense work "stuff", get above thoughts, just relax, lookafter yourself, enjoy yourself.....This is not an over- simplification. None of us realize the simplicity of "Reality", we are too busy, and too complicated. Very quickly we can reduce our thinking by half, as we automatically start to "weed out" negative and unnecessary thoughts. We simultaneously start to watch and witness our busy minds, and stop getting so involved and caught up in "dramas"- many of them trivial.

We actually become more alert and aware, more able to carry out our responsibilities, jobs, and life in general. Our attention becomes better "focussed", we are less stressed, and can enjoy all aspects of life. We will appreciate our families more, and this is really under attack through the stresses of modern life.
