I haven’t done this series since 2016. Search archives.
In his book ethics for the new millennium, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet reminds me to see the world clearly. I read that book years ago and I consider it to be somewhat of a spiritual bible.
In a developed world’s society, it is harder and harder to find basic affection in people. Despite there being millions of people close in proximity, some we may even see more regularly in passing, people are focused on their individual self and their goals rather than on others.
My little Peruvian girl isn’t like that, she is very social and can chat up a storm with everyone. Today I don’t know what I am like.
I have a horrific statement to make and hence I reached out for my spiritual bible to seek comfort in the knowledge that there are a lot of spoiled rude nasty people in the west who have no grasp of reality but their medical cabinets are filled with drugs and their individual pursuits of money is the driving force they label as happiness.
In 2015 I learned of Shantimayi. I wanted to do whatever I can to be with her. I met her student who is a teacher in the Sacha lineage and I am impressed with who she is as a woman. I love her. I dreamed of spending a nice time in nice spiritual retreats with Shantimayi similar to the Yogini Ashram in Corfu. There is a community of affection and honesty, real conversations and support common to European culture, not the lonely north American go-getting vibe. Maybe I haven’t met a community here in Toronto.
Today I am looking at the world collapsed, in fear, surrounded by poverty and problems in a big city and at this time the teachings of Shantimayi came to my inbox, and now the first time ever I can attend her live talk online. I waited for six years to have a live experience with her. Please join in this live event. My life had to collapse and be a complete ruin for this teacher to reach out to me this way. I believe in the benefits of her group work.
