Now that we're into the end of the summer, it is very likely that a great deal of heat has accumulated internally. While this is natural, it is very important that the physiology is adjusted to compensate, otherwise, excessive heat will cause irritability, bursts of anger and various physical challenges. Likewise, when directed intelligently, this same heat that could of caused great disruption can be used for the purpose of purification and realization.
It is an important law of nature...Energy does not dissapear, but transforms. The intelligent yogi works to generate an internal pranic environment that can 'digest' life experiences and transform them into something of value. If you're angry, realize that the energy of that anger is good energy...but should be directed in a more intelligent fashion.
The Kundalini Yoga kriyas are designed to create an environment within the body/mind structures where lower energies can be transformed to their higher, more intelligent forms; where our low-frequency and destructive habits can transform into ones that generate happiness, beauty and deep love.
On Thursday evening, we will be practicing a kriya that ranks in the upper echelon of the Kundalini Yoga system (Meditation On Our Own Life-Force, from the manual Prana, Pranee, Pranayam).
Here are Yogi Bhajan's comments on it:
"This is a very secret and sacred praanic meditation that belongs to a class of high yogic technique. Its purpose is that a person may live up to any age, but his youthfulness will not be lost. It is a physical method to qualify yourself to a higher consciousness that you believe in. Mental improvements won't work until you are physically strong enough."
The benefits of correctly and regularly practicing this meditation are that mental and physical youthfulness will remain; you will have a constant flow of energy so that you will not get tired; you will make yourself basically intuitive; you will be universally sensitive--you can predict earthquakes and universal phenomena; and you can retain energy, be young, happy, and optimistic.Three thousand years ago, the sage said that whosoever practices this meditation shall become healthy and make others healthy as well. It fertilizes the body and prevents depression and disease.
