Happy 8/7/21 – Bring Your Light – Celebration and greetings from Lok Nath
The river valley at Haidakhan runs East and West. At a certain time of the year the setting sun shines and washes ground level radiance right up the valley, toward the mountains. On one of those afternoons, after his bath while drying himself Babaji stepped up on a rock and faced into the sun. His skin was always unusually silky. But, with the sun on him his whole body was more than silky, it seemed to come alive to the light. He glowed. He was like a sun god.
That memory has faded over the years. What impresses me now is that Babaji was forever saying in non-verbal ways – here is what life is about. Here is what the light and love of creation can be. On that evening in the sun the message, you are the light of the world, did not land in me at all. I thought it was only him – he was out there. His words “I am you” did not penetrate my ego’s armor. Now I am trying to look at every picture and memory of Babaji as a pointing to the true nature of all living beings – me included. The non-verbal, non-dual pointing of Babaji’s presence is a thing of incredible mastery and grace.
He was saying, in part, that words have limitations. To reveal the truth, simplicity/ light and love of creation is a gesture of mystery and caring about the whole of creation itself. That revealing is something all creatures, including us, are about. We each in our own unique way gets to reveal and celebrate the inner light and beauty of life.
So, it is with that in mind that I send hopes you can join the Samaj zoom call on Saturday, 7 August. join in the revealing and reveling. Your joy and presence will be a welcome gift.
BBKJ and love, Lok
