Experience from Deeksha Giver on Bhagvan's Birthday

Beautiful experience heard from a Deeksha Giver who is on the webcast team at GC. Hello Oneness Family.... I just wanted to share with you the beautiful morning we all just had. Around 6 AM everyone who was staying here on Campus 3 loaded on the buses and went to the temple. There are many people from Taiwan and Holland here doing a Level 2 course and then of course there is the web site team that somehow I found myself on. We all joined in the main hall of the temple with about 300 Indian people. At about 8 AM, we were joined by Amma, Bhagavan, the Golden Ball, Samadarshini, Anandagiriji, the Oneness Beings and the Guides. It was unbelievable to say the least! As they came into the hall and sat on the throne, bells were ringing drums being pounded, and one of the Guides was singing a beautiful chant. I can't even begin to use words to describe the energy so I won't even try, but I know if you sit quietly and connect you will feel it without a doubt. Anandagiriji then performed Aarti to Amma/Bhagavan as we all sang the Moola Mantra. Then we all sang bhajans to Amma and Bhagvan and they sent continuous blessings to us.

Prayer time was next to ask for any desires for ourselves and for humanity! Amma and Bhagavan then gave all of us intent Deeksha and each and everyone of you was in my heart when this occurred. My body laughed and laughed uncontrollably as it was experiencing so much joy! I saw a white temple in all of our hearts and in a moment it turned into solid gold and the brightest shimmering gold light shot out from each of the temples in our hearts to all beings in the Universe! We spent about 25 minutes total with them and ended with Samadarshini performing a closing Aarti. They both looked radiant and healthy as can be! They were smiling and blowing kisses to all of us and to all of you! Enjoy the web casts today. I am feeling so much love for all of you and feel so humble and grateful to be able to share this with all of you! So much love and blessings your way!


A quote from Bhagavan--
"An enlightened one does not suffer because he is constantly living in the present, experiencing every bit of what life is offering him. But for those who are unenlightened, life itself is reduced to nothing but suffering. To be aware is to be enlightened. The whole purpose of life itself is to live life moment to moment."

We have to be with the present but not thinking about the past or future
If we keep dwelling about the painful incidents in the past, the same will repeat in future
if we keep thinking about future, it will lead to fear
being with present = being in the presence of amma bhagavan
it will do samskara shuddhi and remove all mental blocks, traumas etc
it improves concentration,memory power and awakens intelligence
put ur attention on what ur doing right now
if ur not doing any work, put ur attention on the body, breathing etc

Contemplative Questions

Here is a set of questions that would provoke you and put you through some soul searching. They are not about religion nor about ethics. They are merely about you.

They are not meant to serve as solutions nor are they meant to lead you anywhere. These questions are meant to serve as tools to discovering yourself.

1) Do you perceive the Presence of a benevolent force guiding, protecting and shaping your life? What name do you give that Presence? When did you best feel this Presence?

2) What is your opinion of God? Is your opinion drawn from religion, books, parents and or your personal experience of life?

3) Do you pray? Do they get answered? How often?

4) Do you think it is possible to relate to the Divine? What relationship would you opt?

5) Here is a story for you - Two fierce enemies once did a penance to placate god and receive boons vying with each other. God appeared to the first man and asked what he wanted. He said "give me twice of whatever you give my enemy". Then God appeared to the second one. Even before God could say anything he asked, "God, would you please tell me what my enemy asked for? On knowing his prayer request, he said, "then God, blind me in one eye."
Now what would you wish for yourself, your best friend and your worst enemy if God gave you a chance?

6) Have you ever experienced a coincidence or chance that seems to have involved so many people and factors that you can't stop wondering if a mastermind was behind this operation? If yes, do you savour the experience often and have you shared it with someone close to you?
