Leaving the Fall….

Rohini "Walking Home with Baba", Maps and Principles, Reflections, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Every spiritual tradition values what is known in Sanskrit as sahaj samādhi, or walking bliss: being in the Heart and being with the world simultaneously. The problem is that we make this state of being into a lovely ideal or a distant place that we could never attain. In fact, walking bliss is available to each of us. The real …

Don’t Waste Time….

Rohini Maps and Principles, Reflections, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Why do we waste our time with people, things, objects, etc. that only engage the small self? So we may keep our false identity. We will use anything to maintain our sense of self. So anything that can keep us distracted, away from God, away from our true Self, we will pursue. How sad that we are so attached to …

People Who Hide Behind Voicelessness….

How many of us believe we have no agency, no voice? Now that is an ego that needs to crack. If we have no voice, then we have no responsibility for anything.

This is not about guns, though guns do make killing easier. These were six and seven year olds. Guns were not necessary. Small children are not a threat, and in no way can they fight back. This is about our attachment to violence and our idolatry of the individual. Instead of seeing that we all share in one life, we …

Risk….

Risk is no risk when you are an expert. How many times have we watched someone with great skill and believe that they are doing the impossible, when in fact they themselves feel it is no big deal? Yet when we are ignorant and act without skill, we are the ones risking. It is really dangerous, and it is out …

Thank you….

Whatever God does He does for good. So say thank you. Yes, say thank you. When things go “wrong”, say thank you. When things go “right”, say thank you. We are actors in a play. Stop complaining about the scene in which you are playing. First, the part was designed specifically for you; second, the lines are up to you. …
