It’s been about two weeks since I made Sat Kriya a part of my daily practice, and whew, I am feelin’ it! The focus, the strength, the channeling energy: something is going on. I’m not yet halfway through, but I’ve noticed some interesting changes.
1. I am SUCH a beginner; and it’s OK! When I started Sat Kriya, I had aspirations of being able to sit and perform this meditation for 11 minutes. I found when I started, that I could barely do three minutes, the suggested minimum, and at four, my arms are absolutely toast! I spent a day berating myself for not being able to meet my unrealistic, 11-minute goal, but then I realized that if my practice of this kriya is anything like my regular yoga practice, that I’m a beginner, and I’ll be a beginner for a long time. Yoga’s a lifetime practice for me: it’s a marathon, not a sprint. So I’m in no hurry to extend my three-minute meditation. I’m getting good work done even in such a brief period of time.
