Tune-in. Ong Namo….

Ganesha Meditation: Just contemplate. Contemplate the mind. Watch the thoughts. Watch the flow of your consciousness.
Time — 3 minutes

So you’ve just popped into a new space.

We’re here to experience. That’s how we learn. As a group we can go through it together. In a group our psyches interlock, and the group will have a similar experience. Guru Dev Singh called this “the Sangat Effect.” When you practice Kundalini Yoga in a class, it’s easier than practicing by yourself.

We use only our awareness to heal. Awareness in its proper form or position can help us to be able to project an intention to heal. We Meditate and practice certain exercises to help us to stabilize the Projective Meditative Mind, which is that specific aspect of awareness. The exercises are directed toward stabilizing that awareness.

The Rules or Propositions:
First — I know something because I feel it. Our perception tells us what we know. The mind is part of that field of perception.
Second — I can feel only myself. Our sensations are being produced inside ourselves. We can know how we’re affected by relating with something. We can trust how we’re affected by that relating. We look inside ourselves to know how our perception is altered. We call that with which we relate in a healing way an “event,” which can be anything: a person, liver, toe, anything.
Third — We can include everything in our experience in the relation. We innocently assume that to be true in an absolute way. We don’t put any perceptions on top of the experience. If you think, I don’t know what I’m doing, include that as part of the experience. Subtly, resistances are part of the experience of healing. You are experiencing what your sensory perceptions are telling you. Yogi Bhajan called this “the human sensory experience.”

It’s not useful to interpret anything. We perceive directly what’s there. We are experiencing what is happening directly with us. Yogi Bhajan said, “Intuition is the most important thing to develop in these times.” We can’t rely on old assumptions now.

We must live in a healing space. We heal through our presence. We make no differentiation or distinction. We bring the Sacred to the mundane through a unitary, non-dualistic way of relating. There is no separation.

When I ask Guru Dev Singh, “How did you know that?” there is no way to describe that. He is Teaching us how he knows.

We’ll practice being in the space of the Meditative Mind.

Round One: Open the space. Migrate your awareness to your First Chakra so that you are sitting in your First Chakra. Come into relation with your partner’s First Chakra. Become aware of the Silence that exists within and among everything. Be aware of the Silence while you’re continuing to be aware of all the activity in your field of perception. Open your eyes just enough to allow in some light into your vision. Be aware of the effect on your field of perception. Become aware of the emotions, and of the tendency to want to move. Continue to be aware of the Silence in the discontinuities. Come to conclusion.

Round Two: Repeat of Round One….

That was a really small step. In my Workshop this Saturday, we’ll learn how to heal with our eyes. Through your vision you’ll be able to direct your attention anywhere in your perception.

Opening your perception is affecting your event. In some way you’re merging in your consciousness so that there’s no separation.

Our experience is the reality. Your partner will have her own experience. We all have our own experience.

There’s no independent observer on the outside. You’re the source of all your sensations. It is what it is. We don’t want to try to describe it with our rational, analytic mind. Guru Dev Singh called “the synthetic mind” that which synthesizes, rather than analyzing against some reference.

We’re being more intuitive and more free in choosing how to relate. We find the best way to relate in the moment.

Round Three: Repeat of Rounds One and Two….

The First Chakra is the place where you hold your compulsions, your deepest attachments to your territory, and your tendency to grab onto anything. Don’t heal compulsions directly. You don’t want to wreck everything. Then the Tiny Pet will feel: Then what’s the point? I feel lost.

Student: That’s how I’ve been feeling.

So how can we release the something that’s being affected? The emotions and patterns of thought are specific to things. Don’t eradicate the compulsion. Just starve it.

Round Four: Repeat of Rounds One, Two, and Three….

The intention is more powerful than you think. You know because you can feel it.

There are nice, basic Meditations that we can do to soothe anxiety.

The Kriya For Nonreaction is posted on my website: harinam.com. Download the pdf, and do that Mediation for 40 Days. That Meditation helps you to go deeper into an experience, and not get thrown to the surface through reactivity.

Every little thing can make stories come up. It’s useful to reduce our reactivity. We don’t have to be a slave to the mind. We need to tame the mind so that we can become more effective and efficient in healing.

Let’s close now.

Sat Nam. Sat Nam. Sat Nam. (silent prayer….)
