To my Heart
What is 'This?
Where does 'It' Come from?
I do not know.
No thoughts or words here,
This I know.
Nowhere else do I want to go.
Will you go?
To Be the Love We Are, we have to let go of every idea of love, for love is beyond any definition. It is before any concept of love. To be who we are we have to drop every idea of who we are and open to not knowing.
How could anyone ever tell you who you are.
How could anyone claim to know.
How could any one put an idea on you.
How could anyone put a measure.
How could anyone fail to tell you
To your heart you must go
And open to the beauty of not knowing.
So this is the invitation...
Stop for a moment and ask yourself, "Who am I without thought of who I am?" Do not look for an answer. You will not find an answer in words. Just go to your heart or watch your breath. Let all thoughts come and go like bits of dust! Thoughts are nothing! Feel the space all around you, open to how spacious you are.
And stop for a moment and ask, "Who or what animates all of life." I look outside and am in awe of what designs a bird's beek to crunch the birdseed and how the bird can fly and sing. Who designed these thousands of blossoms of different colors and how can I see them at all? It is so mysterious. Consider for a moment the millions of miracles abounding. Will you open to this wonder?
Whether it be in meditation offerings, individual sessions offering healing or spiritual guidance, shamanic retreats, or chanting, Adhikari is always inviting everyone to drop all our concepts, not pay attention to our thinking, and come out of love. You can listen to a recent interview done of Adhikari by her samyama teacher at:https://youtu.be/0jKikr3N-dM
Though Adhikari is trained as a psychotherapist and is licensed as a LCSW-C., she feels everyone she sees is Whole, Total, not sick so she works with people from that perspective. She is totally inspired by her Beloved Guru ShantiMayi, whom she met in 1999 to give her life for the awakening of all. This gives her the greatest joy!
