Aham Saha is a space and a journey...
a space for seekers
and, a journey from darkness to light.
A space of calm, of warm sunshine and sublime joy
and, a journey from ignorance to awareness.
And how does this happen?
As you open up to a new perspective, the unconscious conditioning of fear and negativity gives way to awareness and self realisation, to deep inner joy and *shanti. The light creeps into the dark and night turns to day. Now, this light does not come from the outside, a borrowed existence, this is the light within you. Light that dawns when you wake up to your reality. When you know who you are, and in that, transcend your limitations to be unlimited, to be who you are – infinite love, infinite power, infinite joy.
You were always that; always complete, always luminous, you only didn’t know. Your light was shrouded in the darkness of ignorance and no sooner do you wake up to your truth, to who you are, your inner sun rises, and you journey to the I.
And now, there is no seeking and no journey, only deep inner joy.
*shanti: peace, bliss, stillness, completeness, happiness, equanimity, the end of seeking
Who am i
Who am I? That one question that I am born to answer. That question I know the answer to across so many
dimensions but do I really…? The question I must ask myself. Who Am I?
Am I as limited as I sometimes feel? Powerless, tossed on the waves of life, desperately seeking control and stability, but most often having to make do with neither. Am I my job, my bank balance, my hem line, my marriage, my corner cabin, my sadness, my limitations, my dreams…?
Am I good, am I bad, am I the multitude of roles I play? Who Am I? Am I the love I feel, the power, the bliss?
The answer can only be found in stillness. In silence. In turning inwards, journeying deep inside, to the cave of my heart and tuning in to my inner voice, the voice of Spirit. Inside is where my journey is. Inside is the sunrise to who I really am. No sooner do I wake up to my reality, my inner lotus, hidden in that cave of my heart, blooms and lights up my world… and I am complete and nothing do I seek.
The sun sutra
Each of our hearts has a lotus, the hidden lotus. We battle the murky waters of life and make that our
journey, never realising that ours is not to battle, but to bloom. To be the lotus.
In the darkness of ignorance, the heart lotus is inverted and closed. As we journey to the I within, the lotus turns upwards and begins to open, petal by petal. Every time we choose faith over fear, the lotus opens. Each time we turn inwards and choose stillness, the lotus opens some more, and as it opens, our inner sun rises. The divine lotus turns luminous and the light of awareness dawns, bathing us in our own light - the light of pure love and joy. The more we turn inwards, the more aglow we are; the more complete and still. And in that stillness and deep fulfilment, we turn desireless and now, just as rivers naturally flow to the ocean, so do all our desires flow to us.
The Sun Sutra, or the philosophy of light, is the journey to this light of the self. This dawn of self awareness and self empowerment that directs us to the Source, and tells us that I am none other than the Source. I am the universe, Aham Saha, I am He. I am all that I want to be. I am the Light that I am.
To the light…
to the blossoming of that hidden lotus in each of our hearts…
