Meditation and art are useful tools that anyone can use to realize one's true self. Yogi Bhajan once said: "Without realizing who you are, happiness cannot come to you." Without control of the mind and emotions, we will not be able to see the truth inside each of us. The previous session of Kundalini Yoga and Art Connection proved that we have the ability to control how we think and feel, and realize our true self, just take a look at one student's art work:
A student drew this picture before meditation. Using lines only, student expressed the emotion/energy she experienced at that moment.
The same student drew this picture after 11 minutes of Kirtan Kriya. Compared to previous drawing, the energy shown here is less cluttered. There is more of a sense of order and structure, more calmness than before.
This is the final drawing by the same student, after practicing the Meditation To Bless Yourself. It is obvious from these drawings, the student's mental and emotional state improved tremendously after meditation.
The truth is, we always know who we really are deep down inside, but we let our mind and emotions distract us from this truth. Kundalini Yoga and meditation can help us to clear our mind and emotions, allowing us to see with clarity the truth inside us, and be truly happy, healthy, wholesome human being.
