How my journey with NV Life began

Naveen Sir came in my life a year and half ago. We happen to live in the same community in Bangalore. I came to know that we belong to the same town in Uttar Pradesh. What a coincidence, I thought! But then as Naveen Sir says, there are no coincidences in Life!   

He introduced me to his book – Meditation, the Cure (or as we always love to add- available on amazon.com). As I started reading the book, I was hooked. Each time I read a page; it had a new dimension. It was overwhelming for me. I started practicing the techniques. I slipped many times and came got back to them over and over again. I asked too many questions and Naveen Sir patiently kept answering. My faith in NV Life gradually started building.  

I was suffering from acute gastric issues so much so that I could not delay a meal. I also suffered frequent injuries due to playing Squash. My health started improving with NV Life techniques. In my quest to learn more and discover myself, I joined the Certification Program.   

I have always been an intellectual person. I can understand complex problems but not emotions. To say that Manthan helped me to identify my emotions in day to day experiences, would be an understatement! Manthan has helped me to understand the root cause of my sufferings and map them to my beliefs.  

I was able to identify my patterns that govern my life. This has been an eye opener for me. I feel that I am finally on my way to reverse my sufferings and find my true self.

While drawing our algorithm, we start with identifying our symptoms. Do we look at our symptoms of today or from our childhood? Our tendencies also seem like they are about today and not from our childhood. How should I interpret this?

You can start with identifying your symptoms today and make your Algorithm identifying your Lack, Tendency and Pattern. It may seem like the tendencies are loud and clear today. This is only because as an adult, you are either more aware of it, or the tendency is more pronounced. However, if you go back to that age group of 7-14, you will find that the same tendency existed back then as well.  

For example – your lack is abandonment and so your tendency is need to prove/ excel. As an adult, you try extremely hard to prove yourself at work, but maybe as a ten-year-old you wanted to make sure that you win a colouring competition or feel worthy by collecting the maximum number of berries or fruits. 

 So, you would notice how the nature of tendency existed even back then – sometimes subtly, sometimes pronounced. It is just a matter of developing sensitivity to recognize it in that time and space. However, you can always work with current scenarios. 

Now that I have made my algorithm and have identified my lack, what do I do with this? Do I have to re-visit my childhood?

In every moment of disappointment – current or past, you can experience the lack. There are two ways to attend to the lack, once identified – 

  1.  You may simply keep your Algorithm/Lack in awareness by writing the events of the current time and go into breathing 
  2. You can revisit your childhood and write about moments that you experienced the Lack/Algorithm and once you have written a few events (in detail), you may lay down and begin to observe your breath. 

In either of the processes, your Algorithm/lack is in your complete awareness and observing your breath after this would only bring an expansion in your awareness. 

After finding my LTP and mapping my algorithm, I can see how I have suffered in my childhood and continue to do so. What can I do to remedy this and reverse my suffering?

 Since you are seeking the cure, you must know that state of meditation is the state of cure. The more you are in this state, the more you move towards light, thus curing your suffering.  

All the things which come into your awareness, must now be attended to by Observing your breath. For process of attending to what has surfaced, refer to Ques no 8
