Via Ram Dass

My path is the path of Guru Kripa, which means ‘grace of the guru’. It seems like a sort of strange path in the West, but my path involves my relationship to Maharajji, Neem Karoli Baba. The way I do that is that I just hang out with him all the time. I have an imaginary playmate in a way, I mean, he’s dead. He dropped his body, yet he seems so alive to me, because I have invested that form in my mind as an emotional connection to that deeper truth.

Because for me, Maharajji is the cosmic giggle. He is the wisdom that transcends time and space. He is the unconditional lover. He is the total immediate presence.

Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 04/23/17

“Purpose is the program of our soul. This program can not be revealed while we still carry anger towards the other because the purpose is about making the other happy. Regardless of what we do in the world, our purpose is always contributing to the awakening of human consciousness. It is always about making the other shine. If we don’t want to see the other happy due to our system being poisoned by anger, it is not possible to actualize our soul’s program.”
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma / What Makes a Good Sit?

Great ecstatic meditation periods have never been celebrated by teachers; we’re always told to go back to the cushion, to let go of all that arises.
