Lesson 154 - Samyama - "Let Go and Let God"
Date: Sat Apr 3, 2004 6:43pm
Q: I don’t think I knew what life was about until I came to this group. Your lessons on samyama have blown me away. I am filling up with light and joy every time I do the sutras, and overflowing with it. I finally know what the words mean: “Let go and let God.” Namaste!
A: Yes, let go and let God is what samyama is about. We just give a subtle angle with a sutra and let go, and our inner silence does the rest. With a range of sutras, we can expand with our inner silence in every direction.
In easy deep meditation we follow the ancient maxim: “Be still, and know I am God.”
Then we do samyama, letting go into our divine stillness, and it becomes clear how we are capable of expressing radiant harmony in this world.
The guru is in you.
