I was doing different jobs, living in different countries. So there was always that restlessness. I think that one of the biggest things that I didn’t even realize before was how much tension I had. So these seven months of Sadhanapada have been really explosive for me and just the sense of joy and clarity and balance that I got here is really incredible.
Earlier, I would spend an enormous amount of time thinking about myself – my career, my relationships, my health and my finances, my joys, my sorrow. After coming to Sadanapada, I have experienced a few moments of emptiness within me and received a lot of what life has to offer. I realized the immensity of this ‘life’ and the insignificance of this ‘I’. Now, I aspire for emptiness and stillness, so that I can be fully receptive to the wonders of what life has to offer to me.
It’s a weird sensation being light like a feather but strong at the same time…. For me Sadhanapada means liberation – liberation from the old ways. Earlier I was stressed all the time or depressed or angry or anxious – I was anxious about everything all the time. So Sadhanapada has freed me from all of that, from that state of continuous anxiety.
Sadhana is slowly breaking all my resistance and I want to surrender completely to it so all the walls of resistance break within me. I feel humbled and privileged for the fact that we ourselves have come as volunteers and we got an opportunity to go through a structured program like this where other volunteers are making things happen for us. Being grateful seems to be a very small word.
It would have taken me years, if ever, to establish the level of Sadhana that I am sustaining here.
Sadhanapada is the biggest turning point in my life and the best decision I have ever taken. What this program has given me is phenomenal that nobody can give me in my entire life. The time spent here has helped me realize that the only one person to work on is me. Earlier I was blaming outside situations for things that were happening within, but Sadhanapada has scrubbed off so many things for me in thoughts, emotions and body. So, thank you Sadhguru for giving us this big opportunity and for allowing me to be in place where everything from waking up to food to shelter is taken care of and I just need to learn how to be.
