🌟Our Soul is always speaking to us in the form on our intuition, our inner voice. For some that voice is very loud or very subtle. This voice can also be visceral, a deep heavy feeling in our body. When you ’know’ something to be true, you just KNOW.
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~ Anais Nin
Today is day 1 of the Shuddhadvaitam Program which is 21 days with His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda, my beloved Guru and Master. Thousands of devotees and disciples gather from all corners of the world to be initiated into over 70 Siddhis or mystical yogic powers during this auspicious time and space of the Simhasta Kumbh Mela where all the planets and energy of the Divine support the awakening of higher states of consciousness and enlightenment.
The Kumbh Mela is the largest spiritual gathering where millions of seekers and Hindus congregate together to pursue moksha (liberation) from the wheel of samsara, the repeating cycle of birth, life and death. Hindus gather from all over India and around the world to participate and celebrate in this massive pilgrimage of faith by bathing in the sacred rivers to be cleansed of all sins and karmas from many lifetimes.
I have always been a seeker, even when I did not know that I was or what it was called.
My whole life I have been searching for something more—something bigger that what I was experiencing.
I was seeking for meaning, fulfillment and the purpose of my existence.
“The place where nothing works is where everything works.” ~ Adyashanti
When the spiritual two-by-four hits us over the head, it’s time to wake up.
It’s a Divine wake up call for us to transform and heal our life.
Spiritual awakening never comes at a convenient time in life. It always comes at the most inconvenient and most inappropriate time. Life does not wait for us when she wants to wake us up. When she hits us over the head we have no choice but to wake up. Sometimes we get blind sided and don’t know what hit us, but this is the only way she can get our attention. Something drastic has to happen.
