August 21-August 26, 2013 are the dates that will be remembered by many for a long time to come, for it opened the new doors of life, but for me It was a like a phase I always dreamt to live!
Some of my friends and me chanted these dates, day in and out for almost a month! Organizing a YES!+ workshop is a journey in itself. You grow from a usual person with physical and mental limitations to a dynamic, multi-dimensional personality. You get to see the power of your intentions, the fluidity of the situations and perceptions, the ability to win over the small mind and you get to experience the phenomena of exponential growth in you and the people around you.
But the interesting fact here is the motivation to write this piece is not the generation of out-of-the-world strength in me but the empowered, confident smiles, beaming eyes and shining faces of my newly found friends after 5 days of the workshop. The transformation was evident from the face itself. After the first Sudershan Kriya session, the “Thank-you” smiles, “I-simply-love-you-for-giving-me-this” hugs, tears of gratitude, took away the tiredness of my sleep deprived brain. Suddenly I would find myself jumping around brimming with joy. Nothing matches to this feeling! Absolutely nothing!
With every “Thank You” message I receive in the form of text, hug, handshake, tear or a big smile, my vocabulary goes insufficient to describe the feeling. I would just look at Ashna for reciprocating the unlimited happiness I felt.
And to my best of friends (Ashna, Pratyosh, Gaurav, Prachi, Sarthak, Megha and Aditya), it is an awesome feeling to see each other growing. The support, the strength, the time we shared together as fellows with a common vision, investing time and energy selflessly to see those smiles, to make them experience the bliss and knowledge, we unconsciously became the cardinal instruments of amazing transformation in people’s lives!
As Sarthak describes it in his words, “It feels like having an angelic Halo over my head”. O:)
