This week offers us a unique opportunity to draw closer to those we hold dear and also to the One who created and sustains us. There is no greater time than this to acknowledge and express our Oneness with each other and with all creation.
Last week, I set aside a day to be with friends. It was a beautiful experience, and a day we all profoundly appreciated. Sri Daya Mata says that even in our daily activities, we must never take for granted the Presence that flows through our relationships because it is a gift. When we cherish each other through laughter and friendship we are actually being cherished by the Divine Giver. We begin to resonate with love. Our collective consciousness is then uplifted when we hug another, or warmly acknowledge that person’s kindness.
