Recently, as I contemplated this teaching once again, I realized that, whatever the external or internal circumstances of my life, I have always believed in the existence of love.
Then, I began to meditate with the sound of the pan flute washing over me. Soon, I experienced that the sounds I was listening to had flowed through me and settled in my chest in the form of a vibration. After a while, this vibration began to circulate throughout my entire body. The sensation was powerful, soft, and reassuring. I felt as if this vibration was the very essence of my life.
Since then, I have aspired to remain connected to this vibration of love, which is able to take me to the gracious, still heart of my Self.
I am so happy to be inspired to rediscover some of the fabulous moments that I have lived through and to recall the multiple activities I have enjoyed in many different places, either alone or in the company of others. For me, these precious moments are inscribed in the cave of my heart. I feel that they all have led me to experience love. The moment itself may have been temporal, but the love that it revealed in my heart has remained available. As Gurumayi says in this teaching, “Love is indestructible.”
This morning, before breakfast, I closed my eyes and observed my breath for a short time. I then felt a soft and peaceful light infusing my being. I was simply happy. I was enjoying the love that is within me. Through meditation—a practice that is always accessible to me—I can feel this eternal love at any time.
