My journey's been quite a long one, and I've investigated different modalities, and even some energy healingthe past. I wanted to find all of the aspects of psychic training meditation. What brought me here was a disconnectmind, body, soul and spirit. I want to expand my knowledge and
get into the reiki healing and energy healing. It's been, it's been magical. It feels like it's just been a real adventure. Every time I feel great. You'll feel like a comfortable, and amazing, and things changed every time.
So like every week is different. It's really harmonious, you know, It's a really lovely, boutique atmosphere. It's the most intense meditation course I've ever done. Finally, I'm at the place I supposed to be, and I have that strong, strong feeling, I can be myself, and no one's limiting me. No one is telling me what to do and how to do it.
And it's great. I love it. So the process of finding my truth really has been around that, the meditation, and, time for selfreflection, as well, and also working with the people that are coming on this journey with me. One of the big things that I've noticed are
how wellsuited my group was, how we contributed to each other's journey, so really it was quite a holistic sort of developmentthat way. Feeling like I've got people around me who are similar, and because I've been quite lonely before, I've felt like I'm different and crazy.
Now it feels better. I think the main thing that it's helped me with emotionally is actually dealing with the emotion as it happens, as opposed to having an emotional reaction to something can sitting on it, or allowing that to be stored physicallymy body,
The spines importancespiritual growth Sadhguru
Questioner A few days ago, you spoke about the spine being the physical, emotional, and spiritual growth center. Can you talk to us a little bit about thaté Sadhguru The spine, we call it â€œMerudanda.â€� â€œMerudandaâ€� means, it is the axis of the Universe. A human being can live just as a biological entity or he can transform himself into such a thing he is almost like the center of the Universe. So, spine is one dimension of you, which determines which direction you go. How your spine is functioning, how the energiesyour spine are functioning right now,
determines almost everything about where you go. Within the spine, if you know the physical construction of the spine, you would know, there are two holes on either side of the spine which is like a conduit pipe for all the nerves to pass. This is the â€œIdaâ€� and the â€œPingalaâ€� the right and the left channels, which represents the dualities of the creation, which are connected to two parts of the brain. Today, the medical science also is identifying left brain and right brain and whatever. This is â€œIdaâ€� and â€œPingala.â€� In the far eastern term, they call it â€œYinâ€� and â€œYangâ€�
ortraditional Hindu terms, they call it â€œShivaâ€� and â€œShakti.â€� It's called by various names. Fundamentally, the two dualities of the existence which is the basis of the physical reality. Beyond this, there is a central space, it's an empty space flowing through. In the spinal cord, there is an empty space. This is the â€œSushumna.â€� Now, bringing a balance between these two will establish you wellthis life. It will make you effectivethe world. It will make you handle life aspects well, but if your energies enter into Sushumna, andSushumna, you can bring various kinds of qualities into Sushumna.
Fundamentally, Sushumna is attributeless. It has no quality of its own. It is like empty space. Empty space is there, you can create anything you want, isn't ité So, one's energies enter into Sushumna, we say you will attain to â€œVairagya.â€� â€œVairagyaâ€� means â€“â€œragaâ€� means color, â€œVairagâ€� means no color. â€œNo colorâ€� means you have become transparent. If you have become transparent, the advantage of being transparent is, right now, if what's behind me is red, I turn red too. If what's behind me is blue, I turn blue too.
If what's behind me is yellow, I turn yellow too. Yesé Unprejudiced wherever you are, you become a part of that, but nothing sticks to you. Anywhere you go, if you are among red people, you can be totally red, but the redness doesn't stick to you for a moment. You are red because you are transparent. You are among green people, you are totally green, but the greenness does not stick to you either. Wherever you go, you become that, but nothing sticks to you. Only if you are like this, only if you area state of â€œVairag,â€�
then you will dare to explore all dimensions of life when you live here. If any color sticks to you, then if you areâ€¦ if red has stuck to you, you will resist going into the green. If green has stuck to you, you will resist going into the blue. Whatever sticks to you, you will resist going into the next one because you develop this prejudice of this is right, this is wrong, this is okay, that is not okay. It will restrict flow of life. So, all this mechanism is fundamentally built into the spine, notthe brain. It isthe spine. If you manipulate the spinea certain way, the very way your mind
