This satsang explains how you quell the stormy seas of your emotions and restructure your perspective. What do you do when the sea surge of emotions threatens to drown you again? Look at the realities in your life and find the inner inspiration to do what is needed.
Gurudevi discusses how a visit to Bodh Gaya, a Buddhist pilgrimage site, linked devotion for her to a different kind of love, a sacred love that you pour your heart into. She explains the Buddhist approach to meditation, cultivating space in your mind, and the yogic approach to meditation, diving into the junk that’s in your mind and heart and going deeper. There is beauty to each one.
Patanjali offers this practice: “When your mind is distracted or disturbed, meditate on whatever you like.” Yoga Sutras 1.39 Gurudevi explains that Patanjali means to meditate on something that uplifts you and quiets your mind. Yoga recommends that you actively intervene in your mind’s tendency to wander. When you stop chasing things in the world, you experience who you already are. Steer your mind toward something that brings it to stillness, and you will experience your inherent nature is bliss and Consciousness. Even a little bit of meditation works. Just do it!
