Satya Sai Baba Dies At 84 & Leaves A Legacy
Satya Sai Baba showed me how powerful the heart is when directed for the betterment of humanity and to end suffering, he was the only Guru who has touched me so deeply.
The first time Baba came to visit me was when I lived in Australia, I wondered who this man with the afro and orange gown was, he bowed at my feet and kissed them, then I knew this was an Avatar, an enlightened being who showed meekness to empower inner strength upon his devotees.
He would come and visit me once a week for months. I was walking down a street one day and saw a photo of him and it was a place of gathering for devotees. When I walked in and saw the orange clothing, the pictures and dozen of books I realized he is a living saint to many. I received vabuti, which is the sacred incense that was from Satya Sai Baba all the way from India and I began placing a bit under my tongue daily. Our connection grew deeper and stronger. Years have passed since I have had a photo or image of Baba around and when he visited me a couple of days ago to invite me to be with him in devotion, I remember the path I began so many years ago-that of the one heart.
The presence of how strong and clear his love is, came to me while I was in a workshop and a group healing was taking place, everyone experienced their own individual relationship to the healing, I experienced Satya Sai Baba right in front of me, he was so big he took up the entire space of the room. In that moment I cried so deeply and so passionately for I had experienced forgiveness like I had never known before. Baba touched my heart again, opening me up to the incredible power and love that is present right inside of us.
Baba,you came to see me prior to your leaving this Earth plane, you have awakened my heart and reminded me of the power each one of us holds within. At the time of your departure here on planet Earth you are still teaching and spreading love, touching all those who you have in one way or another made your presence known. This is a time of sadness for me to see your Divinity leave us, but understand that in this wake,you empower us to hold that you held so dearly, truth of service, presence of love and commitment to the release of suffering. I bow to you.
Each heart beat is an opportunity to help, to serve and to be love.
I give thanks o you Shirdi Sai Baba, Satya Sai Baba and welcome in Prema Sai, who shall greet this planet in eight years to shower in a new wave of love.
“I have come to light the lamp of Love in your hearts, to see that it shines day by day with added luster. I have not come on behalf of any exclusive religion. I have not come on a mission of publicity for a sect or creed or cause, nor have I come to collect followers for a doctrine. I have no plan to attract disciples or devotees into my fold or any fold. I have come to tell you of this unitary faith, this spiritual principle, this path of Love, this virtue of Love, this duty of Love, this obligation of Love. ” 4 July 1968, Baba
