Let’s listen to Sorin who is a Sahaja Yogi now, sharing his ‘Born Again’ Testimonial about Sahaja Yoga Meditation impacting his life on such a deep and profound level
” It is so simple but the believing process it might be so complicated. What our world should look like if we would all live in this Truth ?! ” Sorin 🙂
We come to this earth, from a mother, we live our adventure that is given to us, and then we return to another Mother, Mother Earth.
Each of us experiences sooner or later, in the course of our lives, moments of solitude, no matter how many friends we have and how much loved we are. In such cases, some of us feel the sadness of loneliness, but others are curious about life and its purpose, asking ourselves the classical existential questions: who am I, and why am I here?
From a young age we are taught how to perceive the world we live in, how to understand it, and how to adapt so that we can live. Our mind is increasingly loaded with various information, words, events, science, intellectual knowledge, emotions, feelings, pain and many other perceptions that help us understand the human world. I could say that we are lucky with such moments of solitude, because they are like breaks given to life, when we can get out from the outside world and enter the world within us.
I was no exception, I have lived these solitudes even when I have been surrounded by people who are close to me, and in one of those moments I wondered: why am I alone? And that’s where the search started. At first, there were just some simple questions: how did I get in this situation? Why do I feel attraction to some things and others leave me indifferent? Why do I have some qualities that others don’t have, but I also lack the qualities of others?
These questions, however, have turned into a more in-depth research that slowly, slowly, has guided my steps to the world beyond words, which we call the Spiritual one.
Living in the communist time before the Romanian revolution, I was educated to be an atheist, to believe in science, to avoid the church and spiritual teachings that could not be explained and experienced in a palpable and logical form.
It is hard to seek spirituality without even browsing the Bible once, and especially the New Testament in which the Son of Man brought such significant new details. Every man who reads this book understands it in his way, and every time you read it again you find new things that you wonder how you haven’t seen them before, because they’re so clear.
I do not know what knowledge others have received by reading this Holly book, but I have been directed to these truths: 1. We are souls placed in our bodies. 2. We must be born again to come to know the Truth. 3. Lord Jesus promised to send the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, who will all the knowledge we have been asking for.
It was a warm day of August, when I was heading to a meeting place where there were some people who claimed to know how you can reach your inner Self, through a simple experience called Self-Realization. I came to learn about this meeting through a series of very interesting and well-connected events, which I later understood they were part of my spiritual journey. Once in that room, I was greeted by a lady who had a very bright and happy face, and who invited me to sit down because the presentation was about to begin. I can’t remember very well what was said, but I do remember the presenter’s enthusiasm and impatience to get to do the promised experience. Here we are at the moment long awaited by me. I was a bit nervous but extremely curious, and everything began with the lady telling us to close our eyes and bring our attention inside. Step by step I was led to the moment when I said the truth about myself:
I am the Spirit!
At that moment the mind stopped, and the time and the space ceased to exist. Silence and joy flooded the body and for the first time I was completely aware of the present. Thoughts were gone, and the senses were the only way to feel what was going on with me and around me.
I don’t know how long I was in that state, but I remember after I opened my eyes, I woke up and felt that something very important had happened inside of me: I was born again. So simple.
I also started to feel in my hands a kind of breeze that was sometimes warm and sometimes cool. Lucky me that, the spiritual path that I began to walk from that day has allowed me to do the experience again and again, every time I wanted.
After years of teachings of how to communicate with the breeze I have felt in my hands and above my head, my human desires were reduced to just one:
To stay in this state of Spirit in every moment, minute, hour, day, and year until this body ceases to exist.
Both me and those who are walking on the same spiritual path with me, we have so much to tell to the mankind, but the most important thing is that the Comforter has come on this Earth, is a Mother of our Spirits, and she has been teaching us everything we want to know. She used to start her conferences by saying:
“I bow to all the seekers of Truth. We have to know that the truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualize it with our human awareness, we cannot alter it, we cannot manipulate it, we cannot organize it. It is what it is, it has been and will ever be. But what is the Truth?
The Truth is that we are surrounded, or we are penetrated, or we are nourished, looked after and loved by a very subtle energy which is the energy of Divine Love. The second truth is that we are not this body, or this mind, our conditionings or the ego but we are the Spirit. You don’t have to accept what I am saying, but as scientist you have to keep your mind open and see for yourself, and if it is so, honestly you should accept it.”
