Three Masters - 2nd and 3rd Masters

Namaste, well after the amazing session with Abdy on the Sunday, I couldn't have felt more happier and at peace. I awoke the next day on cloud nine, fully contented with everything in life. The following afternoon as I was walking past a noticeboard, a small flyer stood out like a beacon above all the other mish, mash of advertisements. It was a flyer about an enlightened Indian guru named Shri Shivarudra Balayogi Maharaj or Babaji for short. The flyer said that he was coming to my area that week, his first teachings were the following night and it was only five minutes from my house. Well I was like a little child (or a woman, he, he) who'd just found the keys to a chocolate factory.

I went straight home and called the number, it was all still going a head. 'How blessed was I', I thought two amazing beings in the same week. I came straight home the following day and got ready for the evening. This is where the second of the masters came into play. I've been living with a beautiful friend and her daughter for the past few months. It's the first time in my life that I have lived with a child before. At first I was a bit hesitant, until my guidance had suggested that it would be good for me.

Now this little master has brought huge joy into my life, and even the odd teaching. As most little four year old's these days seem to have a knowing of truth, this little one is no exception. While I was getting ready to see Babaji, she questioned me on where I was going. When I proceeded to tell her, she kindly interrupted me and explained to me, that it doesn't matter where you go, god is always in your heart. I thanked her for wise words 'no problem' she said. She then went on to tell me, 'no matter what Domonique you should always follow your heart, always'. I guess because I was in such a heart opened state, I really listened to the words that were spoken to me.

As with the Abdy experience, I seemed to be very receptive to what was occurring around me. I had a few minutes to sit and contemplate, if I was truly following my heart. It didn't take long for me long to realise, that I for some reason, I had fallen into the trap of thinking what I should be doing, instead of what was maybe best for me. I sat and thought about what had being unfolding for me since being back in Australia.

I really went deep on what brings me the greatest joy, in this moment. The first guidance that came to me was going back to India, I then saw Nepal and an African country. What was I doing, volunteer work, mainly with children. I then thought then why am I not doing it? well there's no reason what so ever.

Off and on over the past few months, I've had the odd silly thoughts creep in, one of the big one's is, that I should be settling down. I'm nearly 36 yrs old, I have an opportunity to buy a house at the moment, so I should take it, 'BORING'. Looking at it, there parts of me feeling that by going overseas and doing volunteer work, maybe for a few years, wasn't the best thing for a 36yr old Western male to be doing. In other words, yes I started to buy into what most of the Western society thought a man of my age should be doing. House(meaning big mortgage) a wife and kids. Now don't get me wrong, I would love to have these things in my life again, kids are the only thing I haven't done yet, mortgage and wife been there done that. All I have is how my heart feels and at the moment none of these things interest me.

Back to the story, I thanked my little master for reminding me, of such an important thing. 'Following one's heart, sets your soul free, It's what truly living is all about'. I drove to the house where Babaji was having his get together. The space was absolutely gorgeous, people were looking radiant and I could feel the excitement of anticipation in the air. We waited about five minutes for Babaji to arrive, In came a bearded Indian man, with a smile and eyes that felt warmer then a summers day.

Babaji sat on his little daybed, at the front of the room, legs crossed, wrapped in a white robe. You could feel his energy poring fourth, covering us like a warm blanket. We then were given sheets with Indian chanting and songs on it, we sang for about an hour. He then proceeded to teach us a very simple meditation technique that was past down from his guru. Babaji then spoke of all the important things that matter in life, love, peace, god and compassion. The night was full of joy and happiness, especially for me, for I had let go of the Cliff once again, and had dived into the abyss of the divine.

After that night I knew exactly what I would like to experience this lifetime as the one called Domonique. Now I know I've said it a hundred times that its not a good idea to plan to far a head (believe me I've fallen into that trap a few times). I sat and meditated on it all and asked for guidance on what was for my highest good. The first one was obviously to go back to Byron Bay, then I was given a little glimpse of a bit further down the track.

When I got back from India I read the famous book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' when I first read the word Kriya Yoga, it jumped out of the pages, I knew it was either a past life experience or that it was going to be good for me to do this lifetime, well its both. I looked it up on the net, there's a course running next year in November, for six months, in an ashram in Orissa, India. So if it's meant to be that's where I'll start my journey, after that I was shown I'll travel to Nepal and fulfill a hearts desire to work in orphanages. Now as well, I saw a golden thread going to Kenya, in Africa and to my surprise another one that went all the way to Spain. After reading Paulo Coelho's book 'The Pilgrimage' many years ago, I was inspired to do the same pilgrimage the 'Camino de Santiago', well I was shown that this dream will come into fruition, sooner or later.

Even though I was shown all these wonderful thing's the key is not to be attached to them. It's for me to be in the now and to know in my heart, that one day the universe will lead me to these experiences. Again I am meant to be where I am right now, everything is perfectly unfolding as it should be.

I also in the past couple of months have been told by two of my soul sisters on separate occasions to get the book 'A Course In Miracles', what an inspiration. My friend told me to read a certain passage in the book, I'd like to share with you the last part of it.

"I am here ONLY to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent Christ, WHO sent me.
I do Not have to worry about what to say or what to do because
He Who sent me will direct me.
I am content to be wherever He wishes, knowing He goes there with me.
I will be healed as I let Him teach me to Heal"

For me that says it all.

I have one more thing to add, I've wanted to share this with you all for a while now. Its about cemeteries, yep for alot of people there not a place, you'd want to think about too much, unless you had a loved one pass away. I hope I can write this and get my message across, in the right way. One of the biggest ways, I learned gratitude and to wake up to whats really important in life, was to go to a cemetery or just look at one as I was driving pass. How did this help?, you ask, when I was going through probably, the toughest challenge I've gone through in my life, for some reason I used this strange method to break the illusions I was placing myself in. How? by going and reading about people who'd died, from all different eras and all different ages. It reminded me while I was walking around, that I too will be dead one day, just like all of us. It some how snapped me out of the poor me syndrome, it help me let go of fear. It reaffirmed so strongly to me, that my soul might be immortal, but my body is not. It also taught me that at any given moment, when my numbers up, its up.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is 'LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST, OR AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, EACH AND EVERY MOMENT, BECAUSE MOMENTS ARE ALL THAT YOU HAVE', If life's not working for you do something about it, in this moment. Find another way, try another way, your the only with the universes help that can do it.

'Forget not once this journey is begun the end is certain. Doubt along the way will come and go and come and go again. Yet is the ending sure, no one can fail to do what god appointed them to do. When you forget, remember that you walk with him with his word upon your heart'.
'A Course in Miracles'.

Every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back .. Aloha brothers and sisters and many blessings.
