Inspired by my trip to Kuala Lumpur and the Radiant Kundalini Yoga Festival I attended last week, I wanted to link two topics together. Elementary stress which is created by not being in touch with your soul and Longing to Belong, which is the emptiness we sometimes feel like loneliness that cannot be filled.
Yogi Bhajan informs us that the only real and deep stressor in life, is that you feel a hole in yourself and your life. You try to fill the gap by having relationships, being busy, buying things, filling our stomachs etc but you still do not feel fulfilled you still feel an emptiness inside. This is because there is an elementary stress within all of us. This elementary stress Yogi Bhajan tells us is because we feel a longing and that longing is to be at one with our infinite selves, with our soul. This is not outside ourselves but deep within. When we honour this relationship with soul or spirit on a daily basis this longing diminishes to a degree, as we are connecting with that which we long for on a regular basis. This then gives us the ability to drop our addictions, not fill our lives up with things, being busy, over eating. This is where our true will power comes from and as we reduce this fundamental stressor in our life, our elementary stress, this connection allows us to not take life so seriously and concentrate on the things we really want instead of the expectations of others and society.
So this week, FEEL the longing of your soul to join back with the infinite. Sit with this feeling in meditation. Do not try to stop this feeling or make it better. This ability to sit with this ache in your heart, your heart burning because of this feeling of separation but not react to it, is our ultimate power. It has the ability to magnetise anything we need to us instead of spending our lives sweating, hassling in order to survive. Amrit Singh also said that when we lie, even little white lies, it kills our trust in the Universe and it is this trust which helps us have the patience to sit with this longing to belong knowing that all we need will come to us.
