On January 31, 1990, I sat just outside Meher Baba's Tomb-Shrine in Meherabad, India, my head resting against the cool stone, surrounded by thousands of His dear ones, all of us joined in fifteen minutes of silence to commemorate the day when—twenty-one years earlier—the Avatar of the Age dropped His body to live on in the hearts of His lovers. It was a profound, unique, and unforgettable experience that bypassed the mind and settled into the deeps of my soul.
It lives there still.
Wishing a blessed Amartithi to my Meher Baba family around the world.
Did you feel whole and one with the whole of creation?ReplyDelete
Out of all the writers I follow, I relate to your writing and posts the most for its spiritual content.
Have you watched holy mountain or el topo by Jodorowsky? Any thoughts about the spiritual content of his work?
There is absolutely a feeling of oneness...of connection to everyone and everything.Delete
When I was a teenager, EL TOPO was a big deal. I saw it multiple times. But, honestly, it's been so long I don't remember much about it. Don't think I've ever seen HOLY MOUNTAIN.
