My teacher Ambrister would sometimes talk about how one day when he stepped outside his teacher Dr. Thind’s meditation class, he looked back, and to his surprise the whole building was surounded by light. As he would tell the story I could almost see him having the experience. One day when we were talking he said to me, Craig “One day when you are at your place, you are going to look back and see that whole building surounded in light!” At the time I owned a metaphysical bookstore. It was also the place where I taught meditation classes. It surprised me that he said this to me. After all, I was just me, not Dr. Mr. Ambrister and not Dr. Thind. But at times he would say things like this, and even compare me to himself, and his teacher Dr. Thind.
One day as I was leaving the building I happened to look back as I drove off. I could not believe what I was seeing. I saw a white light around the whole building. It was an overcast day and the building was a block long. And to my surprise, there was a light around the whole building for the one block. This light was no where else to be found nearby. I drove back and forth up and down the street looking in disbelief. I rushed to Mr. Ambrister to tell him. He replied. “That is the Aura from you and the work you are doing.”
I have learned over the years to never underestimate the beauty and spiritual heights that can be achieved from meditating and doing what the Universe and God lead you to do.
My best friend is the is the Universe.
Like my road dog, we hang all the time.
Or like my girl who I just can’t leave.
When I meet a new one, its her on my mind.
It’s like Mom and Dad, It tells me what to do.
And like my Guru who surely leads the way.
Always right there with the right answers.
She is so cool, she gives me what I need.
And what I want when I show her attention.
How can I forget a friend like this?
In new situations I look for her face.
For now I know it’s there in the background.
To teach me new lessons and lead me along.
We are so close I think we are one.
So when people ask me, Why go within?
It’s to stay in touch and keep our connection.
