The best thing you can do is focus on the here and now by focusing on your breath. In and out and nothing else as it enters and leaves the nostrils. For at least an hour or two a day. This isn’t controlled breathing, just the natural breath however it is. Don’t think of Krishna, don’t think of anything. The mind will slow down eventually if you watch that you do not grasp at the thought but simply let it be. You can’t make it go. Do not entertain any thought. When you find that you have, just return to the peace of your breath. The thought is only a cloud in the sky. Clouds pass in their own time. Do not let your mind leave your body. Your body is communicating, quietly in many ways. Pay attention to the subtle feelings there without reacting. If feelings rise, let them be there without needing to feed any story. Do not try to control anything -but that you stay totally still, non reactive and are observing the breath as it enters and exits the nostrils. When a feeling arises in the body focus your consciousness there as if it were a flashlight. When the feeling dissipates, go back to the breath. Your body holds the karma. The body is the place all the astral energy manifests. This is why certain spiritual practices are so powerful at transforming how we might experience some powerful karmic purging physically. The mind wants to leave but should not. The mind should slow down and root itself in the breath and subtle feelings that the body will reveal little by little as the mind relaxes. It is basic and the most powerful thing. It within your grasp to do this. Do not even say a mantra or a prayer. Do this and only this. At the beginning and end you can say a prayer or mantra but not during the practice described.
Yes, support is helpful and group energy is potent when everyone is moving in the same direction. I am working on this right now, what I can provide within my new circumstances. I don’t care about being popular, I care about being real. It’s the only relief that endures.
