Realizing the Manifest Self--the Life Force permeating our humanity--and the Unmanifest source from which it arises.
16 November 2011
Edji, i'm fascinated that something moved you to be more active in the world, in love, etc.i read other examples of high yogis in caves in india, being content with their emptiness, ready to dissolve into the Absolute forever, and something calls them back.you talk of being happy in your nothingness and a
'beingness' i think you called it appeared and you started to love people again.
very interesting that you've been used in this new way.
my way is to love you. i still read the nisargadatta gita as you recommended and i'm going
through 'i am that' for the tenth time or so.
i have to be honest, i don't really make any efforts to stay in the 'i am', worship the 'i am' or anything.
i read the books, but the heart of the practice has been to listen to you and robert, watch your satsangs and just think about you guys.
and then there's a more intimate worship where i will pull up your photo and send you intense love.
it gets really, really intense. especially if i know you're feeling it. it's actually a serious practice to try to keep you in my heart. painful at times because my heart is used to being closed!! like everyone else.
it's a desire to touch you edji.
i'm sorry if this is far from your usual role as an advaita teacher. it's weird for me too, but something about your blue eyes, teaching, clarity,
sincertity, humanness, jesus edji, i don't know why i keep bother you.
please let me know if i'm on the right track,
crazy, imagining things, a lost cause or whatever...
do you have any intuitions about my whole approach since i began communicating with you?
i love you.
'oh my guru come to me, come to me oh come to me'
--one of my favorite chants you play
