Raja’s Path of Life
Eight years ago, I walked, for the first time through the doors of the Sahaja Yoga Center in Saint-Lambert, Quebec, Canada. Four years later, in 2015, I went back for a much longer period of time. The simplicity of the welcoming and the ease of contemplation immediately seduced me. I enjoyed listening to the inner silence after cleaning the chakras… to feel the awakening of the Kundalini energy by the coolness of the breeze above my Sahasrara (the crown chakra) or in my palms.
I learned a lot about the benevolent power of acceptance, detachment, recognition, indulgence.Raja – Sahaja Yogini from Saint-Lambert, Quebec, Canada
I can never thank enough to Shri Mataji and her faithful and generous messengers and disciples for teaching me to welcome my innocence, my purity, my joy of the child as a jewel to be preserved and cajoled.
Agronomist, economist, willingly an artist, the creative process in various forms has been subjugating my minds for life time. I paint, write and publish short stories, poems and articles related to horticulture. But also, I weave, I garden, I meditate and I breathe.Raja – Sahaja Yogini from Quebec, Canada
Love is in the Air – Raja’s poem
Love is in the air
Lungs, swell with that air,
O, heart pump it,
Blood irrigate me,
Soul get drunk with it
O, my body welcome it.
Love is in the air!
Trees are budding.
The wind rustles between the branches,
The grass shivers under my footsteps.
Life is moving
It is shaped
It is spirit
It is energy
Who says I’m not eternal?
But Where is Happiness? – Poem by Raja
But where is happiness? Where is it?
There it is… There it is…
But where is that happiness?
Close to you… Close to you
I don’t see it…… I still don’t see it…
Listen to your heart… Listen to your breath
Yes… closer than that
What do you mean?
It’s you… it is what you are
It’s the life you built.
The daily life you continue to honor
The path you’ve charted
In what you do and what you didn’t do
If you say yes to yourself, you say yes to Happiness
If you welcome you, you welcome it
Close by….very close
It’ll be there… always there… never far away
You and happiness
You are one.
