At times, people have mentioned that they would almost prefer to not practice the Sutras. The practice can, at times, feel almost uncomfortable. Just meditating and not doing the Sutras can seem easier.
Why? Because the Sutras enliven the structured aspect of the Absolute, and that wells up through your physiology. It is powerful. There can be a resistance to that. Just be easy with it and ride the wave. That makes it not only comfortable, but highly evolutionary. I will talk more about this in the upcoming classes.
I am glad to know I am not alone on this feeling.
Thank you for your words! It is less easy but it still seems right…
I can definitely feel something welling up through my physiology and the changes that come with that. Sometimes, to me, it is fun and easy or unnoticeable. Sometimes it does feel like a challenge to just sit there with it while it occurs and I can’t wait to rest and for it to be over! It feels really effective, though.
Thanks for these comments. I do understand and can relate. I think we all want more ‘powerful’ techniques or aids to propel our evolution forward. It is good to have the understanding that riding such a wave of power can be a bit uncomfortable, particularly since nothing is exactly as expected before it is experienced!
It is interesting to note that Lord Shiva’s vehicle is Nandi, the bull. The silent, unbounded infinite Absolute rides a bull! Infinitely powerful. I guess some may compare doing the sutras to riding the bull of pure consciousness! Feeling so much Shakti welling up within ones consciousness can make one feel.. (what’s the right word”) … edgy? In the upcoming classes, we can discuss this further. Such subtle matters are not easily conveyed. But when we sit together and chat, we can get a clearer sense of what is trying to be conveyed. I am looking forward to it!
I feel very detached doing the sutras. I can’t say I feel anything bubbling and I don’t often discern differences between them. I thought things would change, but pretty much remains the same.
That is all fine. As I have said about meditation, we do not meditate for the experience of meditation. We meditate for the results it has upon our physiology. The same goes for the sutras. We do pay effortless attention when doing the sutras… with the emphasis on ‘effortless’. Your comment is quite universal really. No worries.
