Longing for the Divine
How are you? I hope this correspondence finds you well. I want to share with you a poem I wrote some time ago about longing for the Divine. Listening to Adyashanti on the bus just now reminded me of it.
Oh what of this mystery?
I turn in the night,
Towards Love, towards You.
Here without motion,
Bathed in such Light.
You, who I can never have
And who never leaves.
Trails of longing remain,
Cut off at the root.
Can I speak to You
Your gentle ears listen
A secret Life
Comes in the night.
I have begun attending satsang every week at Villa Devi in Brockley, South London, on Thursday nights. This is bringing oneness more deeply into my living life and I wanted to invite any of you who would be interested in coming. We sing bhajans, chant the Guru Stotra (like the 1000 Names) and perform other kinds of prayers to Amma. Contact me if you would like the details.
If you have not yet done so but would like to, you can sign up to have Mother Meera’s darshan here in London in February:-
Also, if you have not yet signed up but would like to, there is a waiting list for Adyashanti’s retreat this August. I recommend getting onto it asap if you want the chance of a lifetime to be on retreat in silence and with a truly gifted awakened guide:-
Last but not least I would like to share something Amma once said:-
“I haven’t come to teach anyone anything. I have come to remind you of a song you once knew, but have since forgotten” – Amma
She utters such nectar with every breath…I thank the day I met this person. The only person I can call teacher and mean it.
I hope you are enjoying your week,
