When I think of how stress, if neglected, can be harmful, even fatal to an individual, an analogy comes into my mind – of that of a tapeworm, which slowly, but surely, kills the victim eating into his or her entrails – be it his or her her brain, liver or intestine etc.
Those victims, who succumb to stress, may be extraordinarily hypersensitive individuals, and may be mentally and emotionally vulnerable in varying degrees. At a tender age, the ego-shell, which serves as an armour for the growing child, is tampered with, or broken here and there, thereby jeopardising the child’s cognitive development . This can clog the brain and regress or even retard its development, upset the mental equilibrium of the child, precipitate emotional imbalance, that can worsen by constant, consistent pressure from further external stimuli .
This imbalance can erupt like a volcano at a point of saturation, or, if suppressed, can be ‘a stealthy ‘killer’ that can lead to the worst possible situations in the victim’s life – where he or she may not understand the world and vice versa and hence may live under tremendous pressure. It may affect not only his or her life, but also those of his or her near and dear ones, as most of us may generally mistake the victim’s behavioural patterns as childishness and immaturity, showing off, ego, arrogance, hypocrisy or eccentric behaviour.
We may not understand that behind the adult is he or she who is ‘stuck’ in that state of mental/emotional growth of somewhere between 11 to 15 years – Not even parents, kith and kin and friends, who love him or her dearly and unconditionally. It can worsen his or her state by exposure to undue stress in his or her immediate environment, and so also the social and professional circles that he or she moves in. He or she may be grossly misunderstood, ridiculed, condemned, hated, even boycotted by some .
This can create a ‘disconnect’ between the victim and the world, and can lead to diseases of body and mind, gradually but surely, over a period of years and decades. It can further lead to severe and chronic depression, anamolous behavioural patterns sometimes, and, at its crescendo, can also drive the victim to desperation. He or she may take to drinking, drugs,or, may commit suicide, may even commit a murder or rape and may even turn into a terrorist and land up in jail as a ‘branded’ social pest’. How unfortunate!
In a few cases, he or she may even be living life very well, discharging all duties of this world as a responsible individual, but there may be still something ‘lacking’ in his or her life. Very few of his or her near and dear ones may come to know this, for, they may just accept it and love him or her unconditionally. Thus, life may carry on for the victims and all around him or her.
Gradually , it may lead to the direst possible consequences as mentioned earlier, but for the ‘MIRACLE’ that can happen in his or her life through an external agent that can give him or her the power of introspection and the courage to admit to himself or herself and accept it that he or she is different from the world, and, cannot carry on this way, but, needs to change, but how – he or she may not know.
“ Miracles are those that happen to ordinary people, under extraordinary duress.
These miracles may be a play of unknown factors called Providence and can happen in many ways.
I know of, and, can vouch for two such ways as I have directly and indirectly experienced in my life.
Just like a dying sea-giant comes up in all his ebbing giant strength in the last moments before his death, a victim may put in all the ‘power within’. He for she wants to ‘fight for survival’ in the world, may be, less for his own sake, but more for the sake of his or her near and dear ones. It is at this ‘nadir’ of one’s life that ‘the killer instinct’ iof an individual ,can come into play to make the ‘impossible’ ‘possible’. He or she does so by using stress as a ‘launch- pad’ to reach his or her ‘zenith’ in life.
As an example of the latter are those very few, who are enigmas.They may have gone through the worst situations in life but by providence and/or by self-effort, they have kept their ego shells intact to be able to live life kingsize. Their ego is in its rightful place and gets back to its shell when it senses danger and they are able to..’wade through’, ‘struggle through’, ‘ float by’, and, ‘fly over’ the very same situations as the hurts cannot penetrate their ego-shells and may just abrase, peripherally. So they end up as as strong self-made individuals who are examples to emulate. They stand out – unique and dauntless, majestic,tall and royal – amidst all kinds of stress ,mostly stress caused by harm done by man to man, especially in close destiny relationships and social circles that man has to Iive in and adapt himself to, in all life-situations.
Alternately, The Supreme Power may appear ‘out of nowhere’ in some form or other, and directly intervene to bring about a ‘MIRACLE’ to bring a change within the individual himself or herself – a phenomenal transformation to bring about corresponding changes in his or her life and relationships, for the better.
These generally happen to those who become totally helpless and surrender in prayer . It can only happen with prayer and the willingness to change oneself rather than trying to change the whole world. These victims want to change for their own sakes as they can no longer handle the roller-coaster ride of life, its uncertainty and unpredictability. No longer do the different flavours of human relationships trigger their ‘taste buds’. They know that their inter-personal relationships are directly linked to the intra-personal one .There comes a time when these individuals start looking around for something other than a few hours’ seminars . Placebos can work for many,but, these may not completely cure them of their their illness.
THE MIRACLE THAT I KNOW OF, AND, HAVE PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED THE POWER OF IN HEALING AND COMPLETE CURING OF LONG-TERM IMBALANCES IS, ‘THE SUDARSHAN KRIYA’.
REGULAR PRACTICE OF SUDARSHAN KRIYA, WITH MEDITATION ALONG WITH PROPER MEDICATION CAN CURE ALL ILLNESSES, AS MOST OR ALL OF THEM ARE PSYCHOSOMATIC, which, if neglected, may lead to drug- addiction,suicide,murder,rape etc.
With practice of Sudarshan Kriya, The time-span it takes to heal an individual completely depends on the degree of hurt done – how deep in the subtle layers of the mind it has penetrated and rusted . It is just like soft moss can be pulled out from a surface easily but the hardened moss needs to be scrubbed very hard to take it out. .
We take a bath daily to keep our bodies clean. We sweep and mop the house regularly to keep it free of dust. What about the ‘muck’ that gets settled within us? It cannot be cleaned by a body bath.
Sudarshan Kriya does both .It sucks out all the muck that settles within as toxins of emotional hurt anger etc . The accumulated muck is cleared out over a period of time..may be 20 days,20 months
It took me almost two decades to be completely cured of the repercussions of umpteen years of accumulated stress, though healing had been happening. And, daily practice of kriya prevents further impressions from settling in the subtle layers of the mind.
Believe me – if my Beloved Master His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the Founder of ‘The Art of Living’ had not come into my life and initiated me into Sudarshan Kriya, I would never have accepted the world and relationships as they are and would not have been able to cope with the complexities of life . Unchecked and ever-increasing levels of stress might have ruined my life and those of my near and dear ones.
SUDARSHAN KRIYA NEEDS TO BE INTEGRATED INTO TREATMENT OF ALL ILLNESSES IN HOSPITALS AND CLINICS, SO ASO INTO ALL KINDS OF THERAPEUTIC TREATMENT CENTRES, HOSPICE etc.
