431 Days to Go!
Well, perhaps not glory... "happiness" might be a better word. The promise of daily SKY (Sudarshan Kriya Yoga) practice has been realised. In fact, it just gets better and better... a sense of relaxed alertness... content yet fully engaged with life. As time goes by, I seem to be increasingly in that state. I can't remember the last time I didn't feel upbeat. Sure I feel sad from time to time, but it passes quickly - in a matter of minutes.
One thing I love about SKY is that I experience emotions fully (more fully than before I started this practice), but the emotions do not become bound to my memory of events. Thus, the full intensity of the present moment is experienced, but it doesn't hang around and burden my mind afterwards. This is liberating.
It would be easy to wax lyrical for pages and pages, but I think my point's made: regular practice of Sudarshan Kriya has an amazing effect on my state of mind. It's a challenge but the applied discipline of daily Kriya will repay you a thousandfold.
