Remember…

No matter how loud the madding crowd

Remember…

Love is the answer.

Always has been. Always will be.

Remembering…

Five years ago yesterday, April 24th, a beautiful light transcended this world, moving into a different level of being. His name was Sathya Sai Baba.

Baba was many things to many people. For millions, he was a guiding light. For others, a challenge, even a threat. For me, strange as it might sound to some, he was like family – the spirit of a being you have known for so long but haven’t seen in eons. The universe brought me to his door, he opened it, I came through, and life was never the same.

His was a universal message. Though he spoke of many things over many years, there were two constants that wove like a gentle wave of energy through everything – Know that you are Divine, and be the Love you truly are. These are messages I too felt called to share when I became a spiritual facilitator.

As the years passed and I walked what sometimes seemed like different roads (that rabbit hole being one of them), Baba still wafted through the ethers of my world, usually popping up when I needed it most, a wee reminder that I was loved and protected.

Yesterday, as tears surprisingly flowed, I found myself remembering, and in the remembering, slowly coming home to a heightened level of purpose – one of those ‘Remember why you came here’ moments. tribute-graphic - sai babaAnd so once again, I find myself in deep love and gratitude to the man with eyes that could take you straight to the heart of the Eternal – Sathya Sai Baba.

I woke this morning with these words – they are for you – each and every one of you. I hope you will take them to heart.

 

You are the love you seek,
The peace you crave,
The abundance you desire.
You – infinite glorious radiance of the Eternal,
You are the one you have been waiting for.

We Are One

Nous Somme Unis – We Are One is both a statement and a declaration, perhaps even a call. It is also a truth. It speaks from the many to the many, and in this moment of tragedy, specifically to France. Like any good declaration, it comes from the heart, and it carries waves or layers of meaning.

The most obvious is to the people of Paris. It says – We are with you, we stand by you, your heart is our heart, your tears our tears – it says, you are not alone. The second wave speaks to the world. It says – You and I, we are one. We do not often remember this but it is true. So what happens to one, on some level, happens to all. It says (and this is the call) – We want, we choose, a better world, a kinder more compassionate world, so please let us stop this fighting, let us join together now and come back to the remembering.

This is the dance. We live in a world of duality, constantly surfing from one side of its coin to the other. One moment, we are smiles and laughter. Another, we are pain and sorrow. One moment brings love. Another, death. If we surf one side too long, it can appear to be all we have. That is not true but it can look and feel that way. In a world of duality, our greatest opportunity is always to come home to the centre, to live from the realm of infinite possibility, to breathe from the land of infinite love. It can also be our greatest challenge.

We are a world of immense diversity. Our species, that would be humanity, mirrors the world in which we live. There are many tribes, many cultures, many traditions, many faiths, and many languages. Midst all this diversity, it can be hard to spot the common ground, and yet stripped to our very essence we are all energy doing that divine dance. It is time to remember.

Nous Somme Unis – We Are One.

At the centre of each heart, beyond its ‘stance’ in the world, you will find a desire to love, to be home, to rejoice midst the heart of all existence, our eternity, no matter what names we give that. And it is from the heart, open and willing to experience anew, that we must come to each other’s table now and remember. We must have the courage to wipe the slate of the past clean and to step, with kindness and with love, into the possibilities of the now.

At the end of the day when we are looking back on our lives, it will always be the moments of loving that speak the strongest, that call out and hold true. The rest will be like the wind, blustery at times, even brutal in moments, gentle and caressing in others, yet still wind, just passing through.

Every moment carries within it an opportunity to love.

Remember.
