Please help, and preparing for the Webinar
“Dea Krishan Ji,
……I find myself stuck in a pattern, a particular hankering I don’t understand why I am stuck in and I am unable to get out of it. I am praying and surrendering and still it lingers. I want to wake up now. I really do. I have had enough of all this chasing and hankering and I fully know this all leads no where anyway! I don’t know what to do. I have never been more diligent with my practices than now.. but still I feel more stuck than ever.. I don’t know.. pls help.”
My Dear Child,
You are tired. You just need to rest. Your condition is like that of a person who hasn’t slept for a while. You don’t need to wake up. You need to sleep. If a wealthy person keeps hankering and chasing for more, he can never enjoy what he already has. You are already very rich; you just have to stop hankering for more and start cherishing what you have.
Being diligent is also a pattern one goes through. If being diligent alone could bring joy, then millions of diligent seekers would be joyful. But, you know, they are not. A hankering mind ends up in confusion and disappointments.
Take a break for a short while. Cut back on how much you read or listen to the knowledge. Overeating healthy foods can also cause indigestion. Surely, God will still love you if you don’t meditate or read the scriptures as much.
Have you isolated yourself? Do you see yourself as different from others? Look into this. Spend a little more quality time with your family and friends. Have some fun with them. Enjoy the world a little more without feeling guilty. In the process of being diligent, don’t overly suppress your worldly desires. Suppressed desires don’t go away, they just get suppressed for a short while and become even stronger.
Yoga is not against enjoying the world. It cautions you against overindulging both in the worldly life and on the spiritual path.
Don’t follow Buddha by shunning the world. Millions make this mistake. Even Buddha had realized that that was a mistake. Instead, follow Buddha by serving more, being more loving, and being at peace with yourself.
So, my dear, relax about being awakened. Make hay while the sun shines but also dance in the rain. If you can’t dance in the rain, watch the rain and marvel at the magic and love of Nature.
I will write more on this another day. I send you lots and lots of love.

People have reported many benefits of practicing Ojas Pranayama, I share a couple below:
“I feel like the Ojas pranayama is a gift from the divine for me on a very personal level. During my surgery 3 of my ribs were resected, my lung was deflated, and my diaphragm was cut to access the vertebrae. There is a lot of scar tissue inside that side of my chest and my lung expansion is reduced. Ojas pranayama is like the perfect remedy. When I first did it, I had a very emotional experience, and am very grateful that healing can happen now through this technique.”
