Support for Self Inquiry – Moved by the Presence of Love
My beloved teacher Papaji had said to Janaki, stay still and silent on the mountain top (referring to Mt Arunachala) don’t move unless you are pulled or pushed by grace.
This is the gift of my teacher, beloved Papaji, to me and to you. You are this presence of love that moves you – know the truth of this – you are that !
All doubt, despair, and fear become insignificant, once the intention of life becomes Love. ╭♥╯Rumi
Our retreat ‘Moved by the presence of Love’ was very beautiful, and deeply revealing. Whether you were able to attend or not, it may be of support to use the self inquiry questions from the retreat to deepen your awareness of the presence of love that lives as you. Even if we have previously inquired into what we have held to be true about love, grace, presence, or being moved in life, it can be useful to do so again. This exercise can either be done with a partner or on your own.
If you are with a partner, take some time to sit quiet together reflecting, choose one of you to ask the questions whilst the other answers out loud until the inquiry process is complete, then swap and repeat the inquiry questions. This can be a very profound and deeply revealing process of uncovering, so please stay wide open, allow whatever arises, and be a true support for each other. If you are inquiring on your own you can reflect silently on the questions and answers or speak out loud.
Take some time to quietly reflect on all of the Ideas, conditioning, projections, concepts, judgements and beliefs you hold to be true about Love.
What do you know, experience or believe – all that love is
What is Love? What else? – thank you ( keep repeating the question and answering for a few minutes until nothing else arises )
How are you moved / or held back – by what you believe love is – what else? – thank you ( once again keep repeating the question and answering for a few minutes until nothing else arises )
What do you know, experience or believe – all that is not Love
What is not Love? – What else? – thank you ( keep repeating the question and answering for a few minutes until nothing else arises )
How are you moved / or held back – by what you believe is not love – what else? – thank you ( once again keep repeating the question and answering for a few minutes until nothing else arises )
If you were to let go of all that has arisen, all that you have believed or held to be true, just for a moment not touching any of it – Staying wide open, what is revealed as the truth?
When you allow yourself to be open to love just as it is – Is there anything that is or is not love?
What then is revealed as the presence of love?
Staying wide open – how does the presence of love move you in this moment?
Please see the Satsang and retreat schedule for the upcoming Satsang retreats – we look forward to sharing in a deeply beautiful and moving inquiry together, please RSVP – Namaste Yantra-ji
