No Separation is Permanent
During 2017 my mother was seriously sick with kidney disease. Doctor had given an ultimatum that she would not live more than 6 months. Only option was dialysis but my mother strictly refused to get it done and opted to just live as long as she could with medicines. Seeing her suffering I was greatly troubled and was looking for the meaning of life and praying deeply. Being devoted to god in the form of Shiva I started praying for the company of devotees. I wanted to be with people who were searching for the meaning of life in the deepest sense so I assumed that god would lead me to shaivites who are covered with ash.
2-3 months later my mother passed away. At that time a connection formed through my sister which led me to Ananda Sangha level 1 classes. Attending those classes helped me to channelize my grief and suffering into a search for god and meaning of life. Every week I used to be at a centre staying in the protection of Guru and his vibrations, I felt nothing could touch me – great joy I felt during those classes, satsangas and talks with gurubhais. I realized the world is just a stage and no separation is permanent. Our departed loved ones are forever close to us in God and one day we will meet them.
“Friends of other lives easily recognize one another in the astral world…. Rejoicing at the immortality of friendship, they realize the indestructibility of love, often doubted at the time of the sad, delusive partings of earthly life.” ~Sri Yukteswar
