This Age you will all serve is an Age of Awareness, an Age of Experience. This transition to that Age began in the Piscean Age. The Piscean motto was: "I want to know. I need to learn." The Aquarian motto is: "I know. I want to experience." You will have to deliver experience to everyone. And you must deliver the experience to your self each day. That is Sadhana, and for that we have a technique.
I typically enjoy engaging in deep discussions about religion-- often with like-minded friends but sometimes not. I see the hypocrisy within so much of organized religion, particularly as people are trying to espouse the reasons why their religion is right and others are wrong. Why is it so hard to accept that there is one God to whom we all connect in our own ways?
Honestly, I do have more extensive beliefs on the matter but, generally speaking, if you find the connection and it serves your higher Self, bless you and may Peace and Abundance fill you and the world around you!
The crux of the matter is not about who's right or wrong or how you grew up or what your parents or other external influences want you to believe or even how it has shaped your life thus far. It is about "the experience".
I meditate and do my kundalini yoga to prepare for deeper meditations in order to be more connected with the Universe and feel stronger, aligned, inspired and more clear. I know it works because I experience the transformative effects on my body, heart and mind--and the feeling of pure bliss. I experience the changes in my ability to hold equanimity throughout my days and the sensation of "not reacting" (detachment) and compassion.
Does your spiritual belief give you the experience of peace, joy and bliss? Of abundance? Of Oneness with others, with our Universe? If you're not sure what "experience" I am speaking of, you may need to shift your focus and delve deeper. Once you've experienced "the experience", the spiritual high and the gratitude is present without question. You know it. That's when your belief matches your experience-- and you've found the Truth.
"Happiness is your natural state." -GuruMeher, in his book Senses of the Soul.
I define happiness as a baseline of inner peace. A space where you have total equanimity no matter what the tides bring in. Happiness is not all flowery and giddy smiles and like everything is a party. Sometimes there could be anger and sadness, and still there is happiness.
This might be easier to understand in the opposite state: Sometimes on the outside you appear happy-- and might actually be feeling happy in a moment, for instance during a celebration or having met a goal --but inside, you don't actually feel peaceful, you might feel as if you are only projecting a fake happy. How's that?
"Happiness is your natural state". Why is this a good mantra? We don't always pay attention to our emotions when they alert us, and emotions are our friends. They are there specifically to guide us, just like our sense of touch guides us away from the hot stove. Repeat the mantra to help you remember: whenever you find yourself in a state of feeling Not Happy, or that state of inner peace is disturbed or not to be found, ask yourself: "What am I feeling?" Knowing that happiness is your natural state, then “not happy” means you have something to check in on.
Respect the senses, identify your emotions. They will always lead you toward the right path.
A kriya for releasing your emotional patterns and programming:
Working on your frontal lobe helps you release stuck negative emotional memory-- or the patterns and programming from your childhood and into adulthood that harden and form your personality. Negative emotions get lodged in the body creating physical pains while the patterns and programming harden in the frontal lobe. Try this kriya below to help relax and loosen that stuck emotional memory.
Here’s a great article relating to this: Kundalini Yoga and the Frontal Lobe : Navigating Overwhelming Emotions.
This yoga and meditation stuff really goes to your head. And your heart. And your gut. And every part of your body and organs. And your circulatory system. And your nervous system!

It’s called shifting your thoughts, and it makes a vibrational impact on your psyche. Decide you will be a better version of yourself. Right. Now.
Vibrate the Cosmos and the Cosmos will clear your way.
-one of the 5 sutras of the Aquarian Age, Yogi Bhajan
Your shifts will likely give way to your old habits and it will feel disappointing. Here’s the key: Commit to it. And also decide to commit to a regular practice that keeps you fueled. Kundalini yoga is like driving with premium gas in your car as well as having the upgraded model, personally designed with YOU in mind. This is the vehicle for your Soul, suited to who you truly are. Feed it well. .
With commitment to, and compassion for, yourself by carving out time for your DAILY practice and showing up even when you feel like the world is conspiring against you, you will find that harnessing the ups and downs gets you closer to the day when you will feel authentically in your better Self .
Decide. Commit. Live your truth. Sat nam.
