Wisdom Teachings for Awakened Living

Satya Graha

Satya has devoted her life to the deep inquiry of Self through the Wisdom teachings of Buddhism and Mindfulness practices. With simplicity and kindness, she invites us all to directly experience ourselves as we are...Pure, Whole and Free.

“Love says “I am everything”.

Wisdom says “I am nothing”.

Between the two, my life flows”.

Nisargatta Maharaj

Sun

Sun Oneness

In the wake of the Summer Solstice, the height and fullness of the Sun's cycle, I find myself in full reflection on our Sun, the center of our solar system.

For millenia, we thought we were the center.  The Sun, the Moon and Stars revolve around us. We make the world turn. Sometimes we still find ourselves in this illusion.

What? The Sun is the center? We are just one of many spinning satellites circling the Sun.  We are just a speck upon one of these many satellites in one of many solar systems.  Truly, we are a mere drop in the ocean.

And we are the entire ocean, the solar system, in a drop.  We hold the Sun, the Moon, and Stars in our hearts, our luminous, infinite spiritual Hearts.  We are deeply connected, inter-dependent, part and parcel of the universe, the cosmos.

Awesome and magnificent, and all-so simple.  Oneness.

My five-year-old grandson is very expressive and articulate. He has a wise turn of word that I love. He says "Elso" meaning also, but conveying "or else" on the other hand.  Following his lead, I am adding "All-so" to our vocabulary, all inclusive, both/and, oneness.

Gāyatrī Mantra

Om bhur bhuvah svah

tat-savitur varenyam

bhargo devasya dhimahi

dhiyo yo nah prachodayat

“Let us meditate on the Sun, may our thoughts be inspired by that divine light, and may we radiate this light in the world.”

Om.
