As we are fast approaching the end of another Solar cycle (the turning point of the year called Sandhia in Sanskrit, means joint/ juncture) i feel naturally drawn to Akasha, the Element Space and to Meditate on large scale events , like the revolution of the planets around the Sun and the movement of the Sun around the Centre of our Galaxy ( the Milky Way ) .
Wherever there is a turning point ( end of a cycle) there is a natural deceleration of our brainwaves, then a bend ( Sandhia – transition) and then acceleration resumes ( our normal rhythm of day to day life) . Here the transition and change in direction is clearly marked by the Sun : peak of darkness at Winter Solstice /transition/ Sandhia and return of the Light /change in direction / increase in energy in the form of Charged Prana radiated from the Sun.
Therefore this is a perfect time to practice Akasha Dharana and Darshan, Concentration on the Space Element and Visualisation of the Cosmos. Akasha is the infinite Space before creation as well as the container of everything that is manifested and can be perceived as the invisible Space between things that interconnects them as well as the infinite Space surrounding things.
