This amazing life...

I haven't posted for a while. It's been busy and I've had a wonderful time. I was in Carcasonne seeing the amazing Cathar sites, and then a workshop with Sonia Choquette about whom I'll post about next and finally an event with Maharaji who is, in my opinion, the most enlightened teacher currently on this planet! I'm posting some of what he said in recent talks below:


Get to know. Get to understand something. Get to feel. Get to be in gratitude. Get to rejoice. When those things happen, you feel alive. That’s when you begin to live. Everything is such a dance. Such a movement.

The most magnificent movement is the coming and going of this breath. This does not require a scripture to understand. It needs no proof. It needs no buildup. Its divinity is obvious. Is it obvious to you?


"In the heart of every human being resides god. In the temple of the heart. I too, feel that feeling - that within me resides that beauty, that power. It is no coincidence that when I turn within, my heart is filled with joy.

The blessing is joy. The blessing is peace.

In my life, I have to choose that every single day."


Remember this. It was you—the same self—looked in the mirror and said, “I am so young.” The same self looked in the mirror and said, “I look good.” The same self is going to look in the mirror and proclaim, “I’m getting old.” Same self is going to look in the mirror and say, “I used to be young.” Same mirror. Mirror is mirror. Same self.

People talk about liberation, and I wonder. What liberation? This body comes from dust. This is what it came from. These simple elements. And it’ll go back to these elements and it’ll be re-used again and again and again. And again, and again, and again.

And then they go, “But the soul. Your essence will come back.” My essence cannot be separated from the essence of the infinite. It’s one and the same. This is where in me resides the infinite. This body is finite, and what lives inside this finite shell is infinite.
