Strange thing I noticed when coming to see Amma today. First  I felt a sense of happiness and then when I meditated a sense of peace from the world that I have not felt in sometime. I remember meditating at the Hollywood SRF temple and having some wonderful meditation periods and especially appreciated the presence of Brother Bhaktananda. But at times I felt like I was tapping into a peace that was not my own but rather something that was in the room associated with others meditating. I do not know whether it was the combined efforts of the group or the presence of high souls in the room or the devotion that drew the presence of Paraahansa Yogananda’s spirit into the room. Perhaps even a combination. But the feeling that was perplexing to me is that it was not me-but something that was tapped into and difficult to retain for an extended period. Although when it happened it really did not have anything to do with time as we usually think of it but rather a lapse of time into a ‘momentary’ timelessness.

Happy you got to see Amma today!

Thanks Eric will tell you more as the retreat starts tomorrow. It seems that both of us have recently had a dose of what being near to a master, for even a short time, can do for us!

Being in the presence of a Master can have some of the qualities of surrealistic experience since to some extent you recognize that there is something that does not make material sense about a Master. As an example; I was around Amma all day yesterday. But to watch her hug literally thousands of people and retain a smile and joyous nature just isn’t something you see in physical reality. I mean; who can be hugging one person after another from 11:00 in the morning till after 8:00 p.m. at nite and not look somewhat haggard from the experience? But as she leaves the hall she looks as cheerful as when she has entered. There is something about her presence that just makes everyone happy and willing to serve what she represents. At the sametime there is this feeling that you are being exposed to something awesome that really you have no grasp of in understanding.

To some extent I have met people in my life who seem to have a rather surrealistic affect on me. Perhaps it is because they have one foot in this dimension and another foot in another one.
