A day with the Master

Sathsang with Sadhguru, USA

Welcome back to Still is Chill. Since Sadhguru came to III, I didn't have much time to blog. I did little bit, but definitely not enough for such a wonderful audience that you are! The time offline was wonderfull, so many people came over to be with Sadhguru, especially for the weekend of "In The Presence of The Master". It was a truly pleasurable experience to serve all of the guest, and volunteers.

As people were leaving after the weekend, the Ashram became quieter and quieter. The following Wednesday was Diwali, Sadhguru came and spent about an hour with us at night. It was a brief Sathsang.
Next week, on Monday, we were told that Sadhguru will come to join us for lunch. We started with the preparations early on Tuesday morning. He showed up around 9:30am, stepping out of the car wearing a tall black witch's hat as it was the day after Halloween. Everybody was laughing, you should have seen the scene! After we finished eating lunch, we all went and sat for Sathsang. It was a perfect fall day: clear sky, warm sun and Sounds of Isha in the background.
During the Sathsang, Sadhguru spoke about many different things. Some of them also mentioned in his latest blog spot.

"If there is something that you want to do in your life, invariably that will demand that you do so many things that you don’t want to do. See now, all I want to do is fly, but I have to do a lot of math. So what I avoided all my life, now I have to sit down and do it because I want to do what I want to do. This is so with everything."

After the sathsang we all went for a walk. The whole group went to see the Theerth Site which is almost ready for the construction. If you who haven't seen it, it's a 12 acres ellipsoid clearing in the middle of the forest logged by previous owners. It's really exiting! We still don't know what will happen there, but for sure it's all in our hands; all the Isha US meditators will play huge role in this. After discussing different possibilities with the construction committees, we started heading back. By the time Sadhguru comes in the spring of 2012, we should know what is going to stand there.
