Om tat sad brahmārpaṇam astu.
Om śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ.
I've shared with the community, as you know, a short message that has come through me in some way. Initially by way of a few weeks ago when certain experiences of people's suffering were manifesting in various parts of the globe. At that time, I had written that the knots of your heart should remain open to hope, to a sense of fullness. Only in coming to the moment, in resting in the infinite moment, does one come in touch with the power that emanates as you gather these forces of stillness and silence as the source of the eternal, and let them well up within you, a fountain that grows within you, and thereby fears and worries of limitations will disappear if, only if you are allowing the spiritual forces to rise up. This is our teaching.

Once again let us come back to our practices. The practices that no doubt each of us have by way of those daily routines of sadhana, but by way of having time, making time, honouring time to intensify, to deepen, to nurture another part of our spiritual life that we have always hoped for - the opportunity to address in addition to our daily meditation for spiritual renewal, for that rejuvenation of the spirit by way of our own mantras, also knowing yourself to be not the meditator, but the very way in which the meditation can flow, a flow that actually is arising from the samasti citta, from the universal mindfield where those saintly minds, the Masters in their bodiless forms remain as mind and thereby extending their blessing honouring that role that they continue playing in blessing humanity and thus bringing grace toward for us by way of our meditations to receive.

The best answer to that question is: Let spiritual experience become personal. The more you go into your personal spiritual questions, the more answers come. It’s not answers to questions. Simply guidance comes. If I had never met you and read a book about you, and friends had told me about you, I would have all sorts of questions about you. The best answer to that is to meet you. The best answer is to meet God. Until such time, the questions will remain. Some answers will come. Those answers will raise more questions, and the process goes on.
