What is Naturality (Sahajta)?

For all that man is considered to be an inventor and creator, it is ironic that nothing in the world is original. Art, science, logic and emotions, among other things, have been in existence since before the time of man, and have routinely been expressed by flora and fauna alike in nature. As such, only nature is original, and is the only source of original creativity. Once we become aware of the infinite potential that nature has to offer, we are merely the channels through which nature expresses itself in a variety of ways.

In the same way, Naturality, or Sahajta, has always existed, but it is realized through Jivasu. The episodes, experiences and knowledge collected throughout his life became the groundwork for Naturality, which took a clear shape in 2010. The Naturality framework gives us a way of life in which we live according to our natural self. It is an integration of science with the wholeness and sacredness of life. The Naturality mantra beautifully and comprehensively elucidates its essence.

Naturality is like scaffolding – once we feel at home within ourselves and in the world, we let go of the support that helped us construct our harmonious space. The framework of Naturality was realized by Jivasu, but it does not belong to any one person. Instead, it welcomes anyone to join the movement and add their own flavor to it as they discover their natural selves. Naturality is ever-growing and leading to the world becoming an expression of the natural self.

Why Naturality?

Each one of us is born with a natural creativity that is meant to be expressed in its entirety throughout our lives. Since birth, humans need to be nurtured to ensure their survival, development, and physical and psychological safety. More often than not, this nurture leads to social and psychological conditioning which does not allow full expression of our creativity, so we find ourselves torn between what our nature intends and what our nurture dictates.

This often results in a sense of emptiness, conflict, and/or feelings of dissatisfaction in our lives, and we begin wanting “more” – more fulfillment, more easiness, more harmony, more something. We explore many possibilities to find whatever meaning or purpose we are looking for, such as roads that lead to wealth, power, academia, thrill-seeking, shallow relationships, and intense religious and spiritual practices. Interestingly, sometimes we even engage in acts of benevolence and social welfare as we chase a permanent feeling of true harmony within ourselves. However, while all these endeavors manage to give us glimpses of internal well-being, they are mere stopgaps and do not result in an eternal state of true inner contentment.

The framework of Naturality sets us on a journey to the full unfolding and expression of our natural self. On this path, the unnecessary falls away from our lives as we journey towards a fulfilled life in which not only our creativity reaches its zenith, but so do we as individuals.
