It's one thing to know something, think it with my mind. Sattva Yoga brings me to experiencing truth in my body and being. Not just as a concept but as a lived experience.
In today's yoga journey, we began with a practice of centering and activating energy in our root chakra. I was connecting to my root, feeling the energy build and expand. As the journey continued, Master Anand brought us into a kriya called Garuda. I had just read of Garuda a few days earlier. Garuda is a great eagle, with an expansive wingspan. He is tasked with flying to the heavens to obtain the soma, sacred elixir, from the gods to help release his mother from a curse that was placed on her.
As I entered this kriya, my arms became wings. I felt my being lift into flight.
A vision arrived of traveling to my daughter who is currently on a study abroad program in Peru. Felt that the usual time/space barriers dissolved as I connected heart to heart with her. It felt a bit like time travel! Amazing!
The concept of truth is that time and space as we usually think if it, is an illusion. It is much more expanded. Today, I experienced that in my practice.
Sattva Yoga! In it, I have a full practice, experiencing not just thinking.
Knowing in an embodied way.
