Allowing Yourself to Expand

If I say to you, “allow yourself to expand” or “imagine yourself expanding”, what do you do, what do you imagine? Do you imagine your body expanding? Do you imagine your senses expanding? Do you imagine your emotions expanding? Do you imagine your thoughts expanding? Do you imagine your awareness expanding? Suppose that your body, …

Heart Space

The heart: everything resides there, comes from there, and returns there. Last week I woke up in the middle of the night looking into my heart space—like I was looking into a pool of water—I could see the ripples on the surface, the reflection of the sun, and all of this life moving below the …

How Do I Explain?

How do I explain to people that for me true spirituality begins on the other side of the Sri Chakra, on the other side of the Om, beyond both? How do I explain that I experience myself as the life of the Sri Chakra, and that my interacting with the Sri Chakra causes it to …

Impure Women

…there was another group of people who were sitting separate and detached at the far back of the area, and these were all the women at the ashram who were having their periods and were expected to keep themselves separate from both the main ashram assembly and Babaji as well. They weren’t allowed to participate in the aarti because they were considered to be impure because of their periods.

Lightning

Have you ever seen a slow motion movie of a lightning strike? Most people think that lightning hits the earth wherever it wants, hitting the highest point in an area, or the best conductor, or whatever—in any case, it’s the lightning coming out of the cloud and hitting the earth—the lightning strikes the earth, the …

Mayflies

Near where I used to live was a small pond, maybe an acre at most. I liked to visit the pond every now and then because some of the neighborhood eagles would hang out there; plus, there were red-winged blackbirds who had the gall to try to chase the eagles from the prime perches. And …

Mirrors

Mirrors are strange things to me. Whenever I look in a mirror I’m always surprised to see anything there. And when I look in one mirror that’s reflecting me from another mirror, I’m even more surprised. Quite a few years ago I used to do a meditation practice in which I’d sit and gaze at …

Not Anymore

A dream I had last week: I was sitting in a large auditorium with a large crowd of people, none of whom I recognized. There was a sort of booth/kiosk set up at the front of the auditorium, and a gray haired woman sitting inside the booth. People were queued up, waiting to go up …

Pema Finds Supreme Joy

I realized that what she had been doing was allowing herself to be immersed in infinite love. She was allowing herself to be loved unconditionally. And she was practicing so that when she finally left her little cat body she would be able to allow herself to be immersed and saturated with infinite love. Her whole life with me, from the time she very intentionally found her way to my house and parked herself on my couch had been about her practicing allowing herself to be immersed in unconditional love.

Proportions

All my life I’ve loved looking at the night sky. Among other things, whenever I look at the night sky it comforts me to know that there’s more than just what’s here on earth: “Thank God there’s more than just this.” So once upon a time I got curious about the relationship of different sizes …

Pure Unconditional Love

By pure, infinite unconditional love, I don’t just mean some kind of infinite emotional state, or being in the mood to hug anyone and everyone you meet. To me, pure, infinite unconditional love is the ground, the source and the sustainer of all of creation on all levels. Pure, infinite, unconditional love is the creative …

Source Image

A couple of people have asked me where I got this image. Actually, I made it back in about 1995. I wanted to make an image of what it looks like, to me at least, looking back through creation to the ‘central sun’. What I wanted to do was have the multitude of small figures …

Temple Dog

I‘d been looking at the on line photos of the temple tour part of the Karunamayi India Retreat. Some of the photos were taken in a temple where the group and Amma were standing in a sort of walkway that appeared to be on one side (or more) of an open courtyard in the temple …

The False Summit

I once had a dream in which I climbed a mountain. When I reached the high point I came across a large metal or wood Om symbol, kind of like the crosses they put on the tops of mountains in some parts of the world. The Om had garlands and streamers hanging from it, and …

The Woman Who Tried to Hide Under a Quilt

I once knew a woman who glowed like the sun. She almost always had gold white light around her that was frequently visible even in mid day sunlight. She was exquisite. One night I had a dream about her. In the dream I was standing beside an entryway to a world of very bright clear …

Three Drunk Men

When I lived in Edmonton, Alberta I used to enjoy going to a part of town with a lot of pawn shops. The pawn shops were all located along one street that bordered Edmonton’s version of skid row, and several of the pawn shops had lots of really nice old tools: old hand saws, hand …
