Inculcating Powers Through Rajyoga Meditation – The Power To Withdraw (cont.)

When I am too open to the world around me, it’s as though the arrows of negativity that fly around can easily penetrate my being, so that I lose my power. What others say and do quickly affects me, and I become reactive. This causes a build-up of stress, and eventually burnout, which makes me feel my only option, is to retire from situations altogether, which is not always possible.

I don’t want to react; I want to act with concern and reason and effectiveness. When I develop the habit of making a momentary withdrawal in situations of danger, I’m better able to achieve this. Turning within, I’m able to remember my link with the divine, the link of love, the link that fills me with peace and wisdom and good wishes. It’s like an exercise: going inwards i.e. connecting with the self, then upwards towards the Supreme and then outwards (in the field of karma). Doing this repeatedly through the day as a discipline as well as at times of danger, I’ll keep moving forward with stability and strength.

In order to maintain this power, I have to put a high value on introversion. If I’m too extrovert, I’ll become caught up in external circumstances, and won’t have power to withdraw available to me at the moment of need.
