Posters were distributed by joyful volunteers and posted in libraries, coffee shop bulletin boards, skating rinks and retail staff rooms and seemed to hit the right note in everyone who saw the invitation. So many people recognized the event posters as something that called out to them.
The R/Evolution neared capacity as close to 150 seekers of truth mingled with those that wanted to share the pure knowledge that is part of our human evolution.
Actual tales of transformation of local residents were beautifully presented by local filmmakers Ahilan and Jon. Yoann Freget of France sang “Imagine” by John Lennon in the film which concluded with excerpts from free concerts he gave in Halton and the Greater Toronto Area including our classes, theatres and high schools. Key talks by the founder of Sahaja Yoga, Shri Mataji, were profound and filled the room with vibrational energy and permeating peace. The wonderful energy was so powerful many of us felt like we were floating in a blissful state. As Shri Mataji has shared, “Divinity is not a fashion. It is the need of your being. You have to become that.”
Innocent and unobstructed by conditionings, the children sat attentively for the meditation and films. The musical band and Hema dancing Kuchipudi had kids dancing in a natural, unselfconscious way. I had my friend’s daughter Gia on my lap who was happy to raise her kundalini with me, and later, practice beautiful hand gestures with Hema at the back of the gym. The musicians set the rhythm with beautiful drums, voices, and became an instrument for transforming and clearing chakras through our sixth sense.
Once the kundalini energy is awakened through self-realization, vibrational music can heal us from the inside, out. Paintings from local talented artists of all ages depicting an Angel, the Kundalini energy, the Thousand Petal Lotus and other works seemed to transport the venue into a meditative and interactive art gallery.
Proffesor Dr. Mishra from McMaster University began his casual lecture with a first hand account of his conversation with Shri Mataji about the Neuro Science of Sahaja Yoga and how it works out all kinds of human health and behavioural problems. The tangible feeling of the whole R/Evolution felt like an infinite and mounting happiness that we did not want to end! Attendees left reluctantly, as there was still so much more to share from Dr. Mishra and Chad Danyluck (our guest from University of Toronto). So stay tuned, as we co-ordinate continued talks from our Scientists in the upcoming wednesday classes in Burlington at the Brant Hills Community Centre. Souvenirs of candles, bookmarks, and informative colourful posters were given to everyone who attended. Free Sahaja Yoga classes are held world-wide in 140 countries.
Thanks also goes to France who initiated the same R/Evolution on a much larger scale with 450 youth leaders from around the world. Esteemed guests from UNESCO and other influential personalities were in attendance held in Paris, under the stained glass dome of Le Printemps department store. Burlington simultaneously held Ontario’s R/Evolution to introduce Science, Music, the Arts and Spirituality as an integrating force, in the right equation, known as Sahaja Yoga. Sahaja Yoga really is the transformative meditation and the proof can be felt throughout the human nervous system as a cool river or breeze of pleasant vibrations. It’s sure to put a smile on your face and expand your capacity to feel joy, love and achieve the peaceful “yoga” state everyone longs for.
As the awareness of our spiritual self grows, the journey in the present begins to reveal the bliss of the fourth dimension. Many of us have already felt proof of our connection to the collective consciousness in thousands of ways. It is like a frequency that we can be in tune with when our mind is still. Dr. Karl Gustav Jung, a realized soul, was the first to provide proofs of the existence of the collective consciousness. When mental barriers are broken within our limited minds on a collective scale, then all of mankind evolves to the next level.
We are all, as Shri Mataji has taught, “part and parcel of the whole.”
Together, we can reach the realm of unlimited human potential.
The roots of the tree of life is inside our beings, and like a seed, with a little nourishment from free Sahaja Meditation classes, can grow and blossom. It plugs us in to the infinite, all pervading power of the universe by supplying the connection. This is the greatest discovery of our lifetime. To discover the powers we each have inside sheds light on our “outside” lives and gives us the tools to diffuse stress, create a balanced perspective and nurture happiness. The R/Evolution continues to gain momentum in communities across the globe with many more free events and classes to come.
