The Ant and the Raindrop

Hari writes:

Michael,  it is this choice instead of the ranting on and on about Dexter, the ranting can make you crazy – it can definitely make those around you crazy and be funny…

but becoming THIS –  - THIS is something – this is endurance, this is strength – THIS is worth it!

Yogi Bajan said this on 4/2/97,  ”In the Aquarian Age, you don’t pray — you ask God to pray for you. It is reverse.

The ant talking to the boot!

Tell God, “Lord, pray for me that I should be as Infinite as You are. Make me as great, bright, bountiful, beautiful as You, Oh Lord. Give me the power of love to serve. Let me know to serve myself. Let my touch heal. Let my sight create miracles. Let where I exist and pass, there should be nothing but enlightened dance of your grace.”

Michael writes back:

Yes, Hari.  That is different than sitting on my couch watching Dexter.  I think I am beginning to get an inkling of what it means to have some faith…  Faith is believing that the good does not go away.  That is the problem with trauma, it erases faith.  Kundalini, Being, can restore it…

We were talking today about how most people go to Yoga class, feel good but do not keep that feeling with them.  If they had a mother shouldn’t they know good that does not fade, that always returned, that was always there, shouldn’t they have faith?

But most go to the Yoga class and then return to the world, and see it as a place wehre the good has faded.   At least it seems to me that is what they do.  How many people have the caliber to talk to the Infinite and say, “Make me as great, bright, bountiful, beautiful as You, Oh Lord. Give me the power of love to serve. Let me know to serve myself. Let my touch heal. Let my sight create miracles. Let where I exist and pass, there be nothing but the enlightened dance of your grace!”

We are not friends with the Infinite… we are not even on speaking terms…
