Ühismeditatsioon ja 2015 numbrite teadlikkust (4.01 kl 17:30)

(For english please scroll below)

Kutsume Sind 2015 aasta alguses 40-päevasele ühismeditatsioonile!

Aasta 2015 toob maailma värskendavat energia muutust. Tegeleme teemadega nagu kaastunne (8), puhastumine ja naiselik intuitiivne jõud (6). Läbi suhestumise ebaisikliku õitsenguga on numbritel suur mõju isikliku õitsengu ja tasakaalu ära tundmisel ning leidmisel. Selles valguses võib aasta motoks olla Universumi seadus „Energiat (8) ei saa luua või hävitada, seda saab vaid transformeerida (5)“. Millisest transformatsioonist (5) see läbi käib, sõltub iseenda võimest väljakutset ära tunda ja sellest kartmatult (6) ning kaastundlikult (8) läbi minna. Samuti väga soovitame lugeda Shiv Charan Singhi tekst 2015 aasta kohta SIIT ja tema poolt soovitatud hingamismeditatsioon SIIT

Meditatsioon, mille Sukhdev Kaur on Eesti sangati jaoks hoolikalt valinud, on väga võimas, kuid  samal ajal peen ning rahulik, et just nende teemadega töötada.

Kutsume Sind ühinema Ühismeditatsiooniga 2015. aasta jaoks 4. jaanuaril kell 17:30 Dharamsaalis. Osaluspanus on 12 eurot. Enne meditatsiooni teeme soojendusharjutusi ja pranayamasid, et end ette valmistada.

Sukhdev selgitab numeroloogia teadlikkust 2015. aasta kohta ning seda, kuidas just see meditatsioon meid toetab. Edaspidi võib igaüks meditatsiooni oma kodus 40 päeva järjest praktiseerida, lõpetades 12. veebruaril.

Sukhdev Kauri komentaare:

“The arms are moving gently and lovingly in the form of an 8, the sign of infinite (slightly upward and sideways). Rock the baby of your inner child. The center of the rocking, the breath and the focus is at the heart (the balance of the polarities, the center of the mother instinct). It may take many days to find the right rocking- like each baby wants to be rocked in a different way, what is the way of your inner baby? Every time you breath in breathe that love to yourself, compassion for that part of you which is longing for your love” -Sukhdev K

*Meditatsioon tuleb teha Rakhe Rakhanhar rütmi järgi (Singh Kaur). Alla laadimiseks:

—–

The year 2015 brings a refreshing change of energy to the world. We deal with themes of compassion (8), purification and female intuitive force (6). At the same time, a strong impact on prosperity is provided by the numbers in the way of recognizing and finding a balance in one’s own prosperity relating to the impersonal. In this light, the law of the universe “Energy (8) cannot be created nor destroyed, it can only be transformed” can be the motto for the year. What kind of transformation (5) it goes through depends on one’s own ability to recognize that challenge and go through it with fearlessness (6) and compassion (8), beginning with oneself.
We highly recommend to read Shiv Charan’s text regarding the numbers of 2015 HERE

The meditation that Sukhdev Kaur has meditatively chosen for the Estonian Sangat is a very powerful yet subtle and peaceful one to work on these themes. *The meditation will be posted here in the next few of days.

Join us for the beginning of this Global Meditation for 2015 on the 4th of January 2015 17:30hrs, at Dharamsaal, donation 12 eur. We will practice some warmups and pranayamas to prepare for the meditation.

Sukhdev Kaur will explain the numerology awareness for the year 2015 and how this meditation supports us. Each of us can practice the meditation at home for 40 days after the 4th of january, ending on the 12th of february.

Grief: accompanying others

If I have only one line to say when someone just recently lost a loved one, its hard to pick the best. I know that to me most of the things people said to me when I lost my daughter meant they were wordless so whatever came from their mouths wasn’t about the worlds, but about the empathy and about the inability to find the right words. I know that because I feel the same when I see someone who has just lost their dear ones.

What did I do to cope? I just let it all come in, welcomed all feelings and emotions and rage and sadness to take over, yet remaining myself. I did feel like they would tear me apart from inside, and I felt physical, mental, spiritual pain 24 hours. Yet I trusted that I couldn’t do otherwise, I couldn’t hide it nor push it away, and so the only way was to accept them and know that they would become a part of me. Life was never going to be the same. I had been stamped with a stamp on the forehead that I thought would never touch me. Yet I embraced it as I embraced life itself. Because this was a part of me now and for ever. 

So what do I say? Allow whatever comes through you to happen. Just allow yourself to feel all those feelings in a conscious and deep way. Theres no other way out. It made me weak forever, and in that weakness I realized my infinite strength. I did not succumb to those so that means I survived. And If I could survive the unsurvivable then that means that life does heal and there is nothing in the world that happens to those who are not ready. I saw this all as a blessing and was grateful for that pain, for that loss, for that falling apart. It felt as if my physical body was changing skin, my chest with a heavy emptiness, my heart physically broken. And in that void I realized God. And God chose me for this because I was strong inside and I could allow myself to be weak. And I breathed that all deeply in and out, not pushing it away by breathing shallowly or refusing to breath in, but by breathing in that pain deeper and deeper and deeper. That was the healing. And If I did it, then anyone can do it. Sinking sinking farther within with a conscious deep breath. Until the pain subsided and life went forth. ONLY at its due time. Without that pause, that lingering in the void, the feelings can trap us. Life will move again around other things – meaningless they might seem then – and joy will reign again, after the healing has happened. 

And what about what others say? mostly they will say the wrong things. Just empathize with them. Your heart is broken and that is why it is now bigger and full of kindness, and others cannot imagine that. And please remember that every person has their own way to grief and needs to be allowed to grief their own way. 

There was this one saying that really supported me all the way through:

“Let sorrowful longing dwell in your heart.
Never give up, never lose hope.
Allah says, “The broken ones are my beloved.”
Crush your heart. Be broken.
– Shaikh Abu Saeed Abil Kheir, aka Nobody, Son of Nobody.

In the pitch black darkness you can find a blinding light. It is not a light to be seen with the eyes, but it is the true light of the soul. 

Maybe this is my line. 

May we all find that light over and over again in all of our little or big darknesses, that is my prayer.

PS- mothers and family members around the world have started many different beautiful projects after the loss of a dear one. Check out Ben’s Bells, spreading kindness all over. 
And thanks to my dear sister Nirvair Kaur Khalsa from Tucson who told me that story and gifted me the beautiful book Tear Soup, which I highly recommend (and I keep some copies at home to gift in such cases)

– In service of the divine in all,
Sukhdev Kaur

 

On death and dying in life

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other—that man, that woman, that child is my brother or my sister.” – Mother Theresa

Sat nam dear family,
Last weekend in the Kundalini yoga teacher training level 1 I was sharing the teachings on death. A question came up for which I was not prepared and my answer was not very deep. Since then I want to elaborate more on my own experiences with death, and I take this opportunity to share it with all of you.

I die every day with every breath. Every night before going to bed, I prepare myself to die. I let go of every thing, every experience that happened in the day. I die when I allow these to take over: all my thoughts, all my praises, all my glory and my shame, all my errors and shortcomings, all my lessons to learn, all my attachments, all my ego, my greed, my anger and my desires. My limited self dies when I let go of these.

I died many times when as a young brave fearless woman committed many mistakes. I am forever thankful to my Guru for keeping me under his protection in these times. I died little deaths every day when I retreated from the world, either by disgust or by unconformity with this world, with the reality of how it is structured and the banality under which it runs. I die every moment I see injustice and all I can do is trust Guru takes care of it.

I grieve, oh I grieve for that comfort zone, for that ignorance which is sweet and does not question anything. I grief and remember how life was so easy being unconscious. When I wouldn’t challenge myself every day to become a better person. When I would just be a passive animal wandering in the earth without purpose nor connection to the me within me.

I died along with my precious daughter Vida, the moment she left her body as a newborn, far away from me. Oh how I wandered around those blue ethers, acquired a wisdom which is deeper than the deepest ocean. I wandered like a ghost around her memory, around my empty hands and empty womb, around those moments of bliss she brought me. I wandered and found God, Brahm himself, who told me I should come back and live again in this world, celebrate her memory and the futility of life itself, attaching myself a the feet of the Guru where all is forgiven. In every cell of mine, through deep deep pain, I was reshaped. Oh it hurt. Every single cell hurt more than death itself. Every single cell shook and vibrated with an unknown caliber to me. I was reborn into this life, back from where I was left, with a new mission, with a deeper connection to God.

And I forgot. I forgot all these times I died and my mind wandered away with my ego. I did not honour the beauty and the effort of all these beings who helped me die in my limited being so I could live in my limitless self! I was angry to anger itself for ripping me off my most profound experience within this lifetime.

So yes, I have died. I have died and keep on dying until I truly and infinitely die in my ego, die in my selfishness, die in this time and space. I die with every challenge and I am grateful for each one of these deaths. For when I truly go, I will already know the path and will not need to kill each of these inner monsters in those three seconds, when the film of life runs through my eyes.

Yes I die. I die every time I am grateful. I die when I let go of my limitations. I reform myself again and again and again every time I take on a challenge and turn it towards God, coming out victorious in my soul, in my heart and in my infinity.

For peace is found at the end of the path, not at the beginning. To begin with, we need to work, work, work, sweat from work so that we can liberate others with us, when the time comes.

Jinee Naam dhiaaiaa gae masakat ghaal, Naanak te mukh ujlee ketii chhuti naal. 

In humble gratitude to the divine in all,
Sukhdev Kaur
