My experience, learning and realization during Manthan was very profound.            

Something or someone I was searching for years maybe from my childhood. A guide, a navigator towards my journey. There is a deep craving in my heart or soul that a proper person should hold my little finger and show the path towards life. I was curious about searching for that help. But now after 42 years I know I met my master- he is answering all my questions and showing the path towards life holding my little finger. Naveen sir thank you; knowingly or unknowingly you have healed the child inside me, which was wounded and reduced the burden in my heart. My thirst is quenched. I feel contentment. I have learned about my own self, the true colors of my own I can see and there is still more to discover. I can see all my beliefs, lack, tendencies, and patterns of myself.    

                                                                     

We as a group were able to help each other to know our own true characters to know our weaknesses, to know our strengths and to realize and accept our own grey shades. And for me, it’s a great platform where I can speak from my heart and no one is judging me and accepting me the way I am.                                     

The Certification program’s classroom sessions were amazing. Any words if I express or write towards Naveen sir – it will be less. He was just an open heart. Thank you, master.                                 

Realization is an awakening alarm towards the inner and outer journey; both must be aligned, and I must always be aware of myself and aware of my breath.  

Awareness, Awareness, and Awareness.                                                                         

The amazing thing is that this Manthan’s duration was just 8 days, but I felt as if I had spent 20 days or more. The place where we stayed, and the ambience and sir’s and coaches’ energy helped me a lot.                                   

Thank you, Sir and the whole team and the coaches.

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
