The vast red space on the frontispiece seems like the Australian desert, rolling on endlessly, beautifully. And all over are tiny circles of light, like scintillating moments on the wheel of time.
Ever since I participated in A Sweet Surprise
satsang, those scintillating moments have had their own life. I have increasingly noticed the roundness of time. When I let myself experience it, each moment feels full and perfect, like the full moon. The effect of this is that I am not hurrying. I am giving myself to these round moments, and delightfully, again and again as they arrange themselves in surprising ways, someone exclaims, “Oh, perfect timing!”
After participating in A Sweet Surprise
for a second time, as I read and contemplate these powerful shlokas
about the nature of time, it seems to me that Gurumayi is guiding us not only to value the time we have, but also to enter into our own being and to experience the eternality of our own Self.
