ShantiMayi with Jivanjili 2004 250

ShantiMayi with Jivanjili.


The Moment we met

Being in the physical presence of the Guru, the eyes, the heart, the whole cellular system, they resonate in One splendor of Love and Grace.

This is what happened in an instant when I met ShantiMayi for the first time.
As if struck by lightning I saw myself without realizing the implication…

How is it possible we recognize this
How is it possible this utter beauty resonates so deeply within?
Isn't recognition something we know, forget and then get to know again?
Isn’t resonance a wavelength from one polarity to another, from cause to effect?
Don’t we need a similar tuning to catch the vibe?

My Guru ShantiMayi asked me time after time to internalize
that overwhelming love for her; I simply had to surrender to this request.
It seemed to be the only thing I could do for my Guru.
Without even thinking, I was determined to investigate what she meant.
How and why did not apply, love is love.

It was the first clear order in my life that made sense.

Well aware of the painful luggage I was carrying, I was more then willing to detach from it, to lay it down for good and forever.

Through Her unconditional love and support, I was encouraged to cut through error after error, to peel off all the false believes, to look through concepts with a precise sharpness, to reconsider all that I was assigning reality to…..

Never has there been an excuse not to be alert and watchful.
She was calling upon my commitment moment to moment in all things.
Never has there been a moment She was not present,
that She was not reminding me in the heartbeat of life itself.

I stood naked in Her Grace, completely empty-handed.

Essence in love, love in essence.

Here love is inclusive, unconditional, means without exception, means in all seasons, in all things.

Here love is whole and Holy.

Here the resonance is stilled, the poles are One.

We recognize it because it IS our Self, all there is.

A home without a location.

Silence remains.

The Moment we met, this is what I heard:

  The Mother
One Song
My child
Embracing you
In Peace

The Mother
One Song
In Love
Of Empty Mysteries

In gratitude, Jivanjili
