When we have a regular yoga and meditation practice we remain bright, receptive and self-sufficient, embrace the flow of life and tend to complain less. This implies that there is an inbuilt resistance to change and going with the flow when we don?t keep up with a regular practice.
This is true.
This is because our resistance to change are patterns of reaction that have solidified within us and continue to maintain unhealthy and unwanted patterns of behaviour. When we face these patterns and move through them we release the energy that is behind them and has been maintaining them – the fear, the anger, the grief etc. This is more or less uncomfortable.
What actually happens is we have an experience in which we discover that we are not who we thought we were. This happens because when we adopt a universal or dharmic form as proposed in yoga, and Kundalini yoga in particular, we align ourselves with the natural, unencumbered universal life force.
This is something we have a lot of subconscious resistance; our posture represents the sum total of our beliefs and attitudes crystallized in our physical form and this is what gets broken down as we work through the kriya.
In fact the more fully and accurately you maintain the posture, ‘the angles and triangles’, the deeper the experience you will have and the greater the meaning you get from your practice. So?
