Yoga with Haiku

Yoga with Surjot Kaur

The Five Tattvas Haiku

Earth 

We pass a dark house.

Inside, a woman ready to die,

sings a full moon hymn.

Water 

Walk close to the edge,

so our Friend can push us

into the cold pool.

Fire 

We Sit together

in this burning yogi cave.

The empty bowl sings.

Air 

We chant the true name.

The cave fills with strong, cold wind;

yet, there is no sound.

Ether 

Hush and divine void,

the seers enter Samadhi.

Silence hums and spins.

Beyond 

Words melt, light breeze–

All within these empty hands,

Now Great Cosmic Love.

Secret River

My beloved spiritual master and teacher — Yogi Amandeep – recently taught us about the Akash Ganga.

The Akash Ganga is a mystical river, a cosmic river.

This river flows as an extension of the Mother Ganga river in India.

Yogi Ji told us that yogis ride the pulse within the human body’s Shushumna channel on into this river as a way to travel different dimensions.  Traveling different dimensions is not what you think.  This is not about escaping this world or escaping this life.  This is not a Siddhi or magical power.  It is nothing like that.  You don’t go shooting off into outer space.  This is about getting in touch with your deepest inner space.

This is a challenge to you to ride your pulse into the Sushumna Channel as a way to connect to All of Life — light and dark.  This is a way to plug your aliveness into All That Is.

Here, I share a meditation Yogi Amandeep taught.  It is so simple and so beautiful. This meditation will support the expansion of your consciousness.

Meditation to Travel The Akash Ganga

Sit with your spine erect. Your legs can be crossed as you sit on the floor, or sit in a chair. The most important thing is to sit with a long, erect spine. Put alertness into it. Close your eyes and focus the eyeballs at the Third Eye point between the brows. Do not let the eyes move, not for anything.  Keep the eyes absolutely still.

Bring all of your awareness into your hands, particularly your index fingers (for the yogis the index fingers are the Guru energy) and your thumbs (for yogis, the thumbs are the ego energy).  Bring the index finger and thumb into Gyan Mudra.  The pad of the Index Finger touches the pad of the Thumb.

Feel the pulse in the index finger and the thumb.  Feel there are two different pulses in these two different fingers.  Even if you feel nothing, imagine feeling it.

Now, consciously synchronize these two pulses until they pulse One Pulse.

When they pulse One Pulse, move that pulse up your arms and into your spine. When you are in the spine, stay still and focused there.  Don’t expect anything.  Don’t force anything.  Just be open and receptive to anything.  Watch.  Witness.  Then witness yourself witnessing.

If you get frustrated that absolutely nothing is happening, let go of that.  This is not about a happening.  Be very patient and very still.  Allow the journey to surprise you.  It is a secret journey.  The journey is not what you may be thinking, assuming, expecting, or hoping.

May this experience and all that you experience lead you to bliss!

May we meet on the banks of the Akash Ganga. Please know, whoever is reading this, my pulse is smiling at you.

Every day, I am committing to this simple practice, and its result has been profound.  In my awareness, I have witnessed the mountains moving.  Any more than that, I cannot share.  It’s a perfect secret.

I am trembling with Infinite gratitude.

I bow my head at the banks of the Akash Gang.  I kiss the star dust that is speeding past my smiling lips.

I bow to my teacher Yogi Amandeep for transmitting this beautiful, simple gift.  I encourage all who enjoyed this post to sign up for the Yogi Amandeep Newsletter here:

One Heart Fire 11

Day Eleven

One Heart Haiku

Southern Africa

Shamans ignite the One Heart Fire

My flame burns here.

 

One with the Sun and

feel all enlightened as One.

Now we’ll stay real close.

I want to express Infinite Gratitude to the San Bushmen of southern Africa for their One Heart Fire ceremony they hold today in Capetown.  It is so comforting to know that there are people today who value and unhold ancient wisdom.  It is so comforting to know there are custodians of our Soul Medicine who have the courage to commit to upholding ancient tradition.  Even though I am one ordinary woman living in southern California, I feel touched by the shamans’ One Heart Fire.  I feel passionate yearning to merge into the energy and intention of the One Heart Fire.  From this moment on, I promise to do my best to honor and encourage the growth of Enlightened Unity Consciousness in whatever humble ways that may serve my environments.  I celebrate humanity’s entrance into the Ninth Wave of Creation.  Sat Nam!

One Heart Fire 5

Day Five

True human communion and the urgent need to nurture unity consciousness in our times call for radical transformation.  For this transformation to be soulful and aligned with Mother Nature, who needs political demonstrations?  Who needs debates and a whole lot of sensationalist drama?

For radical transformation that honors the Ninth Wave of Creation, humble prayers and shamanic ceremonial fire will do.

I visited the Four Winds website to learn

How to Create a Shamanic Fire Ceremony

These days leading up to the Ignite the One Heart ceremony, I intend to place all the Old Story on a spirit arrow and quietly request that the old story be transformed within the One Heart Fire.

Please join me in practicing Maha Gyan Agni Pranayam to honor the San Shamans of southern Africa as they hold an ancient ritual to Ignite the One Heart Fire on May 24, 2017.

Humble prayer:

May we continue to wrap our awareness around quiet prayers the way sunlight wraps its warmth around the trees.  May we dissolve every story into gentle communion with the One Heart.  Sat Nam!
