To say that the book “Cosmic Arrangement” by Salliji teaches the art of meditation is selling the book and Salliji’s teachings short. While it does certainly teach this art, it is so much more.
The book narrates Salliji’s cosmic journey around the world over the last eight decades. At PowerBooks Greenbelt 3, Makati, Philippines on June 20th, Salliji’s friends and disciples participated not just in the book launch event, but also in a meaningful session of learning and interaction. Salliji engaged her listeners in a brief lecture on the benefits of yoga, mindful breathing and innercises (versus exercises).
Three innercises were demonstrated, namely: sun breathing, swimming in space and diagonal stretching. Salliji emphasized that each innercise is combined with meditation, thereby allowing one to be aware of and to feel the flow of energy. Proper and mindful breathing (versus empty breathing) was also discussed and demonstrated, with emphasis on the benefits of being present in the moment.
As a perpetually busy working mom who multi-tasks as a norm, I could readily identify with the challenge of simply being mindfully present in the moment. This alone inspired me to finish reading the book. If anything at all in this article piques your curiosity or interest, it may just be cosmic arrangement or divine design in motion.
