The magic question of can your yoga experiences be similar. The answer is No! No more than the length of two hair on your head being identical. I have had been practicing Kundalini Yoga for a bit now and I can definetely say that there are days you just want to wish for the session to end and there are other days when time just flies. It has nothing to do with the complexity of the kriya or the length of the exercise but in fact with your awareness in the session. Isn’t it amazing that no matter how many different ways you look at something. You always come back to the mind. Or as Harnal calls it, the monkey brain!
I was on teacher training yoga this weekend and I can tell you that on Saturday I may as well not have been there. I did not enjoy any of it. And on sunday, what a fantastic day. It was like I had suddenly woken up and decided that I was going to enjoy it. The Japji was very peaceful, the yoga was good, and the rest of the sadhana was very musical and enjoyable. With Hari Har Ji lending her opera singing voice to the sadhana I can say the experience was divine. There is an energy in the room but your state of mind can surely colour that experience. From a previous blog entry, it is safe to say that my reality was different on the two days.
