I stopped the car 20 minutes from Espanola and began to question why I was here. Feeling a little depleted from the long drive, tears began to role down my cheeks. It was like success always seemed just a step away. I called a friend and her words soothed my soul she said, "Remember that the way we live our lives is unconventional from most. Trust in your guidance that led you there and stay open."
At that moment a rainbow appeared in the sky --- a sign to continue on anyways. And so that is how life goes when you trust a calling and go anyways the miracles unfold even when you don't understand God's process.
The program consisted of:
Years ago I declared that this is what I wanted and so it is manifesting for me. From my experience "When you say what you want and it is in alignment with what God wants for you - it becomes your reality, very quickly."
As I was driving to the ashram my intention for my own life, was to have a clear mind and to live a pure life. Yogi Bhajan used to say that when people came to his kitchen and did dishes or service of any kind he would literally watch their karma's flying off their body. SEVA is as I have experienced it is a cleansing, purifying process. I had no idea how many blessings I was receiving by being there until I left, and the clarity from my time there came flooding in.
I asked one of the elders Guru Simirin, who knew Yogi Bhajan well, "What is the intention of this place, Hacienda de Guru Ram Dass? Is it to amass a large group of people to come live in this community ?" Her response to me was; "This is the Mother Center, a teaching place, a retreat for people to come and to refuel their energies and then go back out into the world and return whenever needed." She told me this will always be your home. Which to a traveling spirit as I am, hearing those words was very comforting.
Yogi Bhajan felt it was important to not only learn the teachings but to share them as well. I left the ashram to do just that. At first I began showing people I met the meditations I had learned.
Then one day I realized that it was not so much about the words as it was about the energy of who I had become. And I literally began to watch people around me transform over night. We can all do this... be a beacon of light for others... by living a clean, pure life. Knowing who we are with clarity gives others hope that they too can find their way HOME.
