Re: 13 things about April Celebrations
- So nice to hear from you and about highlights from April celebrations, dear Sharani!
Well, I have not been in NY for April celebrations and didn't really get knews so far (but I am not complaining). I have had a very good time except for the persistant rain.
I may not be able to name thirteen special things that happened here, but what definitely was a highlight for me were the new books "Illumining Questions And Answers" by Guru (I heard there must be four or seven new ones of this series. Two of them reached me somehow and also new videos "The Life Of A Master" and new "Wisdom-Pearls". I am 'benefitting' so much from both books and videos.
If you or others know exactly what books were published and name their titles here in this forum I would be very grateful.
I got the books "Beyond Likes And Dislikes" and mysteriously right after I finished reading it "You Belong To God".
The Master advised us to read his books page by page and not browse through them but in the case of "You Belong To God" I became impatient and read the question/answer that I myself had asked inwardly so often, first. It is about a childlike consciousness, a childhood without sweet experiences, suffering in childhood, and how much our childhood influences us.
Each and every question/answer is illumining, indeed and partly confirms that I am on the right path trying to make myself happy.
Thanks so much to those who compiled the questions and answers and worked so hard to make them available in the form of new books to all of us to read and learn.
Got to go and read...and watch...!
- Hi Doris,
Now let's see if I can share the news of events I missed in case no one else picks up the thread of this conversation. :-)
One day there was a 7 hour meditation and I believe the weather was quite sunny and warm that day - perfect for being outside to meditate. There was an event in Manhattan one night in place of the usual function at Aspiration Ground in which a combination meditation workshop and concert for the public was held. There was a marathon for runners with qualifying speed in prior races. The 12 hour walk and the World Harmony Run 2012 ceremony happened on the same day. I heard from several people that they liked this WHR launch the best of all they had ever attended.
Oh - gotta go back to work, lunch hour almost over. Talk more here later
p.s. I started reading Beyond Likes and Dislikes when I borrowed it during Celebrations - I don't actually own it yet. It has some pretty profound stuff in it!!!
