Sahaj Experience

Spontaneous is the word for my whole experience in Sahaja yoga. People in deadly ,difficult financial screwed up life or majorly deprived life when gets to know by doing something everything will be Ok ,then they without giving second thought plunge in to that practice, That to in a such a manner that trouble which generally takes year to wipe out should get vanish in millisecond. Everyone hopes the same. Thinking on same line we joined Shri Nirmal Devi’s Sahaja Yoga .My brother was driving Engine & we all were wheels of that Car. But that time we were totally ignorant of spiritual aspects of Sahaja yoga what we wish that what we seek i.e. Solution to all our problems.
During Study period my Brother used to meditate & I used to just sit down with him. Wishing well things should happen to us. Yes results were positive but I was unsure of magical force behind it. Belief was there but I was not surrender. Daivi Lila (god’s play) is difficult to understand .As Shri Mataji says it needs subtle power than mental power to understand God.
Gradually everything went normal everyone from our family got settled, happy life started. In this period I don’t know which Binding forces stick us with Sahaja Yoga. Good thing about this was we could meditate without any material longings. Even if I used to do something against this naturally powered energy I used to feel bad about it. Slowly I started experiencing what Shri Mataji calls Param Chaitanya (Devine Vibrations).If question comes, if we have prosperous & happy life then why should we do it Then my gentle request would be for Your real Ascent try it at least once. Its worth it .
People say you are having all these issues due to your past life. I never believed in Past or future .But After experiencing Sahaja Yoga Meditation I know for Certainly We have Energy Centres & if they are operating well then all good things will happen to you (Good which god wants to happen to you so that you can grow as a human being).If any of these centres has problem then you will have Mental Projections in form of personal, Professional, Economical & Mental problems. Question was how to keep them healthy .Quotes, Saying & speeches of Shri Mataji has revealed all these Secrets. It’s very difficult for first time to follow it as our EGO always fights with it. Believe me follow it without doubt or ask Shri Mataji to free you from dicey situation, you have to be 100% there.
I don’t know what negativity is but I know something is there for sure. Shri Mataji talks about Salt Water treatment, Hawan , Puja etc. To clean your emery Centre . I being little Intellectual always thought all these as a part of Karmakand. But presence of Shri Mataji changed everything. It is really cleans you not physically but subtly, not for second but for long time. Even Salt water at night will change your life drastically. You won’t even know it but subtle energy is working on you.
Shri Mataji says Meditate everyday .First it would be very difficult but try, try still you achieve it. Try till you have an experience .Trust only your experience & everything will happen Sahaj (Spontaneous) in your life.
This is my experience rest is your choice.

Patience !!!

I have been always challenged by this word in school, college, workplace and now it seems everywhere .At home aai used to say " Have patience while having tea, it may burn " but who will listen ,who has time , moreover who has patience .In Mumbai , life was like a running local train where each train miss will increase penalty for you in next train (In short boil on tongue was better).Boil was manageable but these days impatience has led me to different horizon & consequences of that are quite costly(Now I have to bear it in pounds :D).
As an upcoming interior decorator to my house I dreamt to decorate it with "All Hand made Things" .These hand made things are much unorganized, funny, without perfections but they give emotional touch to the place & to lives. So our journey of hand made stuff started from oil painting. OIL PAINTING , yes sounds crazy right ? Last eight years after leaving junior college I never touch paint brush and suddenly jumping on oil painting. The story behind is , You must have heard about Van Gogh , yes the brain behind broken chair .This Great painter painted his broken chair on canvas and got famous for his abstract idea to be precise not for his skills. So if he can do then why can’t I. ‘I’ who doesn't know anything about painting , who is going to draw something new then it has to be weird , unfamiliar & inartistic right.So after this major brain storm with my own constructed thoughts I decided to go ahead with oil painting.
In London , routine stuffs are easy to get but if you add any specification to it then you have gone. I Decided, will purchase all basic colors, do some mixing on them and make my own colors (first impatient thought ) .We Maharashtrians have some strange bonding with Lord Ganesh (Elephant God) so I choose Ganesha as a model for my handy creation. Wait now you will say where is the Contemporary touch here then let me tell you my dear friend Ganapati would be representation from drawing but he would be in form I Imagine, understood? Anyways, too much of explanation, Let me go ahead with patience No patience facet of the story.
As it was my first drawing and that to with Oil paints, I decided to read some online stuff. After reading 2-3 pages, as all smart chicks, I believed it would be a cake walk for me to finish it on same day. Colors were ready( In brain) ,brushes were ready to scratch on Canvas and Ganapati have already started eating modakas in my thoughts , now before he finishes them and run on his rat I wanted to start and finish and frame and hang my creation on wall. I started without letting my patience interfere between strokes of great Rash Gogh .I started throwing untrained, unpracticed but presumably impeccable great stroke and that’s all.
Ganapati ate and burp and went on walk after meal & I resume myself in clearing unwanted strokes on canvas.
Patience dear patience , would have saved me from being owner of this new colorful Art but not an Art. There are many instances where by patience along with me I would have really gain something & so this new strategy.
During all interviews if people ask me question on my strongest point then without hesitation I answer patience, hoping this commitment on start of new job will definitely take my impatient attitude somewhere. Hoping & still longing to be patient.
