Yoga and Happiness
Last week we discussed what limits our happiness but this week we look at what increases it. It is no surprise that the number of people practicing yoga has greatly increased over the past few years. Some put this down to an evolution in consciousness.
But on a practical front why does the practice of yoga makes us feel so good. I have students asking me after class, “What is the point of all this Kundalini Yoga?” As yogis we believe we are infinite spirits residing in a finite body mind. Your infinite possibilities meet with your limited body mind at the border of your awareness or consciousness. Your level of awareness gives you different choices , capacities and therefore possibilities. To break or widen your unconscious limit and horizon you need a technical knowhow. Yoga is this technology knowhow that enables the body mind to expand through, asana, pranayama, mudra, mantra, meditation,etc. to allow you to experience the infinite self.
Kundalini yoga is the owner’s manual for human consciousness. Expand your awareness or consciousness and you have a greater relation to your infinite self. This intern grants you more options in life, greater possibilities. This awareness only develops when you receive practical experience of it from your heart, it cannot just be read or philosophised about.
This wisdom needs to be experienced and practiced on a regular if not daily basis. Your teacher, Guru can show you the techniques but this will not make you feel good unless you have a personal experience of it through your body mind and 5 senses. That is why you need to practice yoga. Not talk about it but actually do it, breath it, feel it in your body so your limited concept of life and yourself dissolve to reveal what your true identity is, your unlimited spirit. That is why we say Sat Nam so much in Kundalini yoga as a constant reminder that I am not this limited body mind but an infinite, eternal, soul here on earth to experience the wave of life. So if you want to thrive not survive, improve your choices, increase your capacity and be happy, keep up a daily practice of yoga. It will raise the horizon between the limits on your life and life’s unlimited possibilities.
