Many problems that human beings are suffering is simply because we have lost that awareness as to how to be in sync with the many forces.
If you become in rhythm with life, you will also wake up somewhere after 3:00 AM At that time if you sit up and do whatever process you’ve been initiated for, it will bear maximum fruit.
In the way, the planet is spinning and what is happening, something very fundamental changes somewhere between 3:20 to 3:40. This is called Brahma muhurta. This is relevant only up to thirty-three degrees latitude, Your system, human system, functions in a certain way; it is a possibility.
So there has been awareness about making use of this possibility. Your life is a product of many things that we call the universe, many things that we call existence. So we are a consequence of a certain phenomenal happening that we call as cosmos.
We are not an individual existence. So when you get in sync, certain things will happen. They wake up once in seventeen years. Can you beat it? they know it is seventeen years and they come awake. And they breed and they go back to sleep.
They’re keeping time once in seventeen years. No alarm bell anywhere.
Well, how is this?
I’m saying they are in sync with nature. We have lost sync with nature and we think that is our nature. No. All the many ailments, many problems that human beings are suffering are simply because we have lost that awareness as to how to be in sync with the many forces, which are making us who we are.
So yoga is to bring that sync so that you are in rhythm with life. If you become in rhythm with life, you will also wake up somewhere after 3:00 AM If you’re conscious, suddenly a certain spark of aliveness will happen within you.
Even if you are in deep sleep, you will come awake. This must happen to you. This means you’re falling in sync with it. You’re falling in sync with life.
So what should I do?
Should I meditate, should I do a kriya?
Doesn’t matter what. You must do a process for which you have been initiated; because initiation means you are not just taught a practice, it was introduced into your system; it was implanted in your system.
So whatever, if there was a live seed within you if you’re awake at Brahma muhurta and sit for whatever that practice is, it bears maximum fruit, because of the way the planet is behaving concerning your system.
If you become aware in a certain way, a certain level of awareness is achieved within you, you will simply know when the time is. If you go to bed at the right time, you don’t have to look at your watch.
You’ll always know when it is three-forty because the body will behave differently. At that time if you sit up and do whatever process you’ve been initiated for, not what you picked up from a book, it will bear maximum fruit.
The seed will get the necessary support at that time for it to sprout or spurt up more rapidly than… than at other times. This is only for the initiated.
If you’re not initiated you’re a book yogi, then three-forty, six-forty, seven-forty, not so much of a difference. Sandhya Kalas is more important for such people. Sandhya means twenty minutes before sunrise, twenty minutes after sunrise, or twenty minutes before sunset and twenty minutes after sunset.
The same goes for noon and midnight but they’re of a different nature. So these two twilights are better for the uninitiated. Three-forty is good for those who’ve been powerfully initiated.
