I Lost My Patience….

Rohini Reflections, Stories and Occasions, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

In Orkney I cried, I laughed, and I finally gave up my attachment to patience. Thank God. I had been driven to travel to Orkney for the last two years, and on July 27th I finally arrived, not knowing what would happen or how, but knowing this was an important time. The quiet was amazing as well as the landscape. …

Resources….

Rohini Practicing, Reflections, Uncategorized 2 Comments

Resources. What are they? Resources are people and materials that aid us in our lives. These resources can be within us or outside us. We should know what they are and use them wisely. Our resources should be looked on as gifts. Do not waste or disrespect your resources, because if you do they may run dry, and you are …

Mother’s Day….

Rohini Reflections, Stories and Occasions, Uncategorized 4 Comments

Today in the States we celebrate Mother’s Day. Baba was for me both my mother and father. He brought me up; he cleaned me up. My first mother and father were my first teachers. They continue to teach me my life lessons. I owe them much, since they introduced me to the part I am playing and helped reveal the …

Constancy in Practice….

Rohini Practicing, Reflections, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Spiritual practice is not a crisis intervention to use only when we are in trouble. It is to bring us to peace not only for a moment but for all time.  So we practice and get to a state of peace and then we go about the business of life. When we walk into the world somehow we lose this …

We Are Not as Good as We Think….

We cannot go forward without first bringing down our small self. What is the small self? Simply, it is who we think we are. It is not who we are. The small self is just a set of ideas, but we then believe those ideas are who we are. Our true Self actually enlivens these ideas, but our small selves …

Appropriate Rest….

Rohini Practicing, Reflections, Uncategorized 1 Comment

Sometimes, when pursuing the Truth, the best thing we can do is: rest. This may sound strange when we are intensely determined to stay on track. Are we on track or are we driven? Though we say we know the goal, we may be just driven to be driven. We may have “forgotten” the goal of Home, Truth, God, the …

The Crisis behind the Crisis….

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 …

The light that enlivens….

Rohini Love, Reflections, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

  The light that enlivens the subtle creative process is the same light that enlivens the shrunken, ignorant, delusive small self.  We have to choose–and we can choose–what we enliven.  Will and discernment are so important. Love enlivens everything, but because it passes through different vehicles until it reaches full manifestation, by the time it manifests fully it is twisted …

Characteristics of Mysticism….

Rohini Maps and Principles, Reflections, Uncategorized 2 Comments

From Mysticism, by Evelyn Underhill: 1.  True mysticism is active and practical, not passive and theoretical.  It is an organic life-process, a somthing which the whole self does; not something as to which its intellect holds an opinion. 2.  Its aims are wholly transcendental and spiritual.  It is  in no way concerned with adding to, exploring, re-arranging, or improving anything …
