This raja-yogic pranayamic (rajayoga = royal union; pranayama = extension of breath or life force) meditation fosters union or relationships among individual beings. The meditation having a horizontal dimension also has the four stages of 1.relaxation, 2. purification, 3. surrendering, and 4. union. Holy Scriptures very strongly warn that it is impossible to love God who is invisible without loving humans who are visible in our day to day life. Service of God is done only through service of humanity. We need to love even those we dislike, even our enemies.
The first two stages of relaxation and purification during rhythmic breathing are the same as in the previous meditation for developing union between oneself and the Supreme Being. In the third stage the surrendering is to the divine aspect in every person. This surrendering and letting go to the divine in each person facilitates the unity of humanity, marks our human solidarity, and highlights our common destiny, no matter how different we are.
Stage 4: Union
While on-going breathing in and out in the context of relaxation, purification, and surrendering we can visualise vividly all the persons in the world with whom we have relationship problems slowly and one at a time. These persons are our relationship targets. Then we need to make in our imagination packages of our subtle psycho-spiritual-social energies, and direct these energy packages to the targets. Experience these packages moving in terms of powerful vibrations of peace and love. While some are ready and disposed to receive your vibrations, others are not. From those who are not yet ready to receive the vibrations of peace and love you sent, your vibrations will return to you. You do not like it. You are not in this universe to react out of your frustrations but to respond out of your endless love. You do not allow to be conditioned by them. So keep on sending your vibrations regardless. You are not in this universe for the results you want. You are here to surrender to the Divine who alone knows what is best for all.
Those who are ready for the encounter will receive your vibrations whole-heartedly. See your vibrations enveloping and embracing them. Your vibrations in turn generate reciprocal vibrations in them so that they can surrender to all that is best - the divine – in you. Here your vibrations are in phase with theirs. Experience communion, communication, and transformation taking place in the selfless, non-exploitative surrendering and merging with each one’s pure and egoless being. Here there is no settling of scores, no justifications, no pompousness, and no claims. Here there are only two sparks of divine consciousness that engage each other in gratitude, compassion, and love to make this world a better place for all.
With those you want to develop a relationship with, bombard them with your vibrations of peace and love. When they are ready, they will respond. Meanwhile be aware that only unconditional acceptance and selfless and compassionate love for all can generate effortless and non-ending bliss and pure joy.
