In Wild Heaven
How are you?
I am great 🙂 Being here with a direct physical incarnation of Divinity, living in harmony with nature, people and animals and having an awakening focus to everything each day, feels like wild heaven… In fact, I heard a wonderful song of similar name on the plane jukebox flying here: R.E.M’s ‘Near Wild Heaven’.
It occurs to me that the more we willingly relinquish in favour of Truth, Reality, unconditioned Love – the happier we are. Or at least, the happier we end up: it can involve a process, sometimes a rather long one – lol! I believe this is also why Amma recommends seva (selfless service) as the primary awakening practice for all her devotees. In the deepest place within, it quite simply makes a human being happiest to serve without personal gain.
My friends and I have been sharing that it is actually difficult to do paid work here at the ashram, because one feels as if going against a great tide…as if, in the very air and atmosphere of Amritapuri, this dharma is flowing.
As such, I have settled on a new schedule for Private Sessions while I am here with Amma. I have not yet settled on the same for the Groups, I am still feeling into that and patiently awaiting intuition. Therefore, for now I have cancelled all existing Group Healings, so please note this.
I will be available for one Private Session per day on Zoom in the usual way, but for 7 days per week. Sessions will be at 2 30pm IST (9am GMT) each day. This begins on the 17th February. As a reminder, I am returning to London on the 12th April and will adjust my availability accordingly at that time. Apologies if any of this is an inconvenience you.
Here is the link to book Private Sessions (NB any which have been previously booked will not be affected and will go ahead) :-
I would like to share a couple of short points, from things I have learned by listening to the satsangs and my experiences here.
One aspect of compassion is viewing all experiences which come to us – the good, the bad and the ugly – as gifts from God. When this attitude becomes true and real, the mind immediately becomes tranquil.
Something crucial I find about Darshan with Amma, in particular when asking a question, is that – whatever I bring – Amma consistently responds with such a relaxed feeling and way about Her. It makes me feel that, if Amma is so relaxed about this, perhaps I can relax about it too. That is one of the greatest gifts Amma has given me over the course of my lifetime (and possibly many lifetimes – who knows?).
One devotee shared a very beautiful thing which Amma once said : “At the end of our days on this earth, after all our successes and failures, the measure of our life will be how much we have loved” ~ Amma
