Satsang with Sri Mooji. Rishikesh India
Satsang with Sri Mooji
I have not written a thing for this blog since arriving in India apart from the Incredible India article, and not because I have not been inspired… quite the opposite actually! I have not written this time because I have been allowing myself to just be in the flow as my natural state of being. Not focused on documenting the experiences as they come, and rather just being the observer without an agenda. And this has quite possibly been the most powerful experience I have had yet.
Being in the moment is not always easy, this I understand very well. Being in the flow of each moment requires complete absence of thoughts from the past, and the future, and just letting things occur organically as they do. No attachments, no judgements. And from my journey, I have realized that for me, it took some time to find this sweet spot. And it’s been taking even more time to be able to hold it…
Sri Mooji Satsang
I just finished my visit to Rishikesh India, with the purpose of attending a Satsang delivered quite calmly and comically by Sri Mooji (click here to see some of the Satsang on youtube)and all of the 1000 plus souls in attendance. The take away message I received? That in being the observer (the witness) of your life, your thoughts, habits, and actions, allows you to arrive at the truth of your existence, which is actually pretty simple in the end. You are light. You are love. You are also that which cannot be named. And when this understanding hits, it’s pure joy.
I watched on as hundreds of people sat in their experiences while Mooji delivered the goods. Several people came to the microphone throughout the days with many questions, and I noticed my tolerance for what I perceived to be ignorance in some people starting to wain. It was in this moment that I also realized that I was making judgements and not allowing my fellow human beings the space they needed to get themselves sorted out, along with corrupting my own space. And then Mooji said something that completely snapped me out of this.. he said that it is important to make and also hold space for others who are in their own process, at their own level of experience, so that they too can grow from their journey into being.
It seemed as if he was speaking directly to me in this moment and the words resonated deep within my heart. I felt as if some new level of understanding shifted within, and I was again shown something about myself that dams up the flow inside, and also affects others. After this realization, I left the ashram feeling lighter and with something new to observe in my self, along with some goose bumps from the super high positive vibes that were felt there.
Life is effortless when you live in the flow…
As humans we like to be entertained, distracted, and are full of thoughts and ambitions. And there is nothing wrong with that, until we find ourselves waking up one day like “What happened? This is not my beautiful life, this is not my beautiful house!” And then what?
It reminds me of the old saying where a boy asks his father how much he makes in an hour – just so he can save up enough paper money to buy some of his fathers time before it passes by. When we busy ourselves so much with chasing material things, and forget about actually enjoying the present moment and all it’s surprises, the magic of life too can pass us by.
We are timeless, but in this human form we are here to remember something before we trap ourselves in routine, thoughts and distractions that take us further away from the truth. I personally believe that we are here to remember the magic within and to share that light with others, and that this is an experiential process that when allowed can transform your entire existence.
