To try to answer the question “What has Sahaja Yoga done for me ?” is like trying to answer the question “What has being able to breathe done for me ?” Everything. It has transformed the way I live my life, the way I enjoy life, the way I understand life. Before Sahaja Yoga I was always looking for a meaning upon which to base my existence. I became frustrated as there seemed no ultimate answer to What is good or bad, right or wrong. How could I conduct my life according to principles if I didn’t know WHICH principles ?
The amazing thing about Sahaja Yoga is that it proves what it sets forth. There is no blind acceptance of a set of beliefs or techniques; there is a mechanism, the existence and effects of which are verifiable on our central nervous system. This mechanism is applicable to all fields of life, and on every level – mental, emotional, physical, etc. Whenever one is in doubt or questions the best course of action, one has simply to ask one’s enlightened nervous system and the answer manifests itself ( as a cool breeze or heat on the hands and on the top of the head). And as the basis of this system exists in every human being, it functions in a collective way – as we help ourselves, so can we help others, by using this “subtle knowledge” for human benevolence.
Gross level problems like insomnia and allergies were quickly resolved after I started Sahaja Yoga meditation. They became insignificant as I saw more subtle changes in my life – I became more balanced emotionally and psychologically, relationships became based on innocence rather than eternally “hunting” for the perfect mate, I started to enjoy the present moment rather than racing to the future or dwelling on the past. Every day provides examples of situations which would have either troubled, annoyed, or stymied me before, but for which I now have the capacity to handle in an appropriate way. I feel extremely fortunate to have Sahaja Yoga as a vital part of my life.
