So Darshan Chakra Kriya

Finding Better Air

The other day I was on a bumpy flight.  After a while the captain came on the PA to say “we’re trying to find some better air”.

It occurred to me—aren’t we all trying to find some “better air”—better circumstances, nicer companions, more of what we want and less of what we don’t want?

And how often do we turn attention to the outside—to circumstances, the energetic of “getting things”, or believing we’ll be happier when others have changed?

The “rules of happiness”, if you want to say it that way, are really not like that.  And neither is it like that in yoga.

In yoga, it is the choice to move away from the belief in, the attachment to, thoughts that pulls one out of alignment from the stillpoint, the zero point, where all the universe and synchronicity is waiting.

So working on the inside to make that transition from being in thought to being in stillness, emptiness, is the way in, the portal.

In the practice of Sodarshan Chakra Kriya, with every repetition of the mantra one has 48 choices for thought or for the mantra and accompanying vibration.

If there are 2 rounds a minute, that’s 96 chances, 96 decisions.

In a practice of 62 minutes that’s nearly 6,000 individual choices.

In a 2 ½ hour practice that’s nearly 15,000 decisions for stillness, for shunia, for zero.

That is a way for a human to change.  In the universe there is no lost, and no wasted energy.  Not one speck.

If you are interested in this practice and not yet familiar with it, just Google it and it will come right up.
