How are you?
In many ways, it is our addiction to the next moment which keeps the whole egoic structure going. The ‘I’, the ‘me’, the source of separation and suffering, depends upon time. Contrary to our reflex and to popular belief, we do not need this ‘I’ in order to function optimally.
Whatever is happening, we feel sure that it could be improved upon – or that a catastrophe is about to happen – and so we dream of the next big thing, the future, the soulmate, or of escaping disaster, of being saved etc. Therefore we will not allow ourselves to stop.
But it is in stopping, deeply and truly, that we are able to break these fantasies. As it all breaks down, we finally get in touch with the Divinity within. This is the stillness, Love, peace, harmony, and more, which we are seeking. In fact, everything we thought we were going to find in what is beyond the now, is already here. The contrast is quite incredible, between where we thought we would find all this and where we do find it. Divinity is revealed to us by resting gently as awareness: simply by doing that and nothing more than that.
The Free Online Group Healing on this, will be on Wednesday @ 1pm BST. NB: please write to me at the email stated in the ‘Contact’ section, in order to be added to the group email invitations for these sessions.
On a different note, here is a message from Amma’s UK ashram:-
‘We are delighted to share that, as of 2 weeks ago, our Covid-19 fundraising campaign for India raised just over £10,500 (from 106 donors). Thank you to everyone who donated, spread the word and shared the link. As the need is high, we will keep the campaign running for a couple more weeks – pls do share this update with anyone you know who has contributed or would still like to. (Select “Covid-19 India Crisis” from the optional drop-down menu)
Wishing you all a beautiful day with Ammas Infinite Grace.’
Ps As a little boy in Amritapuri (Amma’s ashram) said to Amma during a public Q&A a few days ago, “When we turn towards the sun, there is no shadow. There is only light. But when we turn away from the sun, there is a shadow. Likewise with God. When we turn towards God and face That always, there will be no shadows.”
