I feel amazed and grateful for my 8 days at Satchidananda Ashram - Yogaville. I am overcome by the immensity of the shift within, and again, oh so very, very grateful! It's about time!
I feel my foundation is re-established. I have regained forgotten knowledge and wisdom that will strengthen my sense of security and groundedness, enhance my practice, and help me maintain balance in life. Being outside and moving daily, whether while hiking or practicing asana, has reinvigorated me. I got the kickstart I needed and was unable to accomplish on my own, at home. The power of positive group influence cannnot be under-appreciated!
The love I have experienced here is rejuvenating and uplifting; the devotion to service and Guru and his mission of service is a cardinal aspect of this place. I have no sense of age or time or separation here; the feeling of Oneness pervades all actions and thoughts and feelings. The love alone is most important to me; my strongest desire is to fulfill my purpose, which is to Be Love! to be Light! And the feeling of rejuvenation allows me to get in touch with that in myself again.
I have been stuck in a mire of darkness and tumbled so that I cannot stand up to walk toward my own Light and the Light outside. My power has been restored and I can move again with freedom. I can see the darkness diminishing. My soul is alight again. I have found love in many ways and many forms, and as always, it originates from within, beginning with the knowledge that I Am Love, I Am That, and from there, I can simply be me!
Ah, I have missed my Self!
