Any Soul That Drank the Nectar …

Any soul that drank the Nectar of your passion was lifted.
From that water of life he is in a state of elation.
Death came, smelled me, and sensed your fragrance instead.
From then on, death lost all hope of me.

… So many of you in Our Community ask Deeya ~ Where do I come upon this Nectar; Where might I quench my thirst in Blissfulness as you do? How do I attain the Nectar of Immortality? Of Self Recognition? Of Freedom?

Deeya :

“A Great Guide said to me once … “Go within, or go without …”

… those words reverberated and resounded throughout my entire beingness with the clarity, power and impact of an earthquake. And from that point forward, I began to sit with myself, in quietude, for initially just 10 minutes a day as was His suggestion.

I had absolutely no idea why I was to do this or what might occur or even what to ‘do’ during the periods of sitting. But something in me Loved and Trusted in Him.

On some days, especially in the beginning, nothing at all would appear to happen, I’d be lost and frustrated in the darkness of my thinkingness. But I simply clung to my Remembrance of Him and the potency of His only instruction.

On other days, it seemed as if I was ‘rewarded’ for my dedication, my earnestness and my sincerity in the practice. My awareness would seem to alter and I would feel held in a blanket of His Love. I would be lifted, drunken, elated. On those days, my sitting would naturally far exceed 10 minutes and actually hours would pass effortlessly and timelessly. There were endless days, weeks and months of dancing in unbounded, unbridled happiness and joy on hearing Divine Bhajans ~ the very essence of the Transmission itself.

Yet these indescribable periods would be interspersed with times of great despairing, grieving, sobbing and heartbreak when His Presence would seem to dissipate …

I would fall apart and ponder “Wherever had the Light of His Love gone …”

During these times, I hoped for Him and longed for Him with a fire of intensity that seemed to burn me to cinders and crush me to dust, and so no matter what would appear in my experience of sitting, and in the expression of my life itself, I kept on going, year after year, seeking for and, when finding, drinking, quenching, in His Nectar … until finally …

By Grace itself, He and I ‘met’ and merged ~ were REVEALED ~ in the entirety and fullness of explosive, propulsive, implosive, Cataclysmic Cosmic Communion ~ with the Realization that all the while, This Nectar, This Love, This Light was mine, it CAME from within.

He had appeared outside to pull me into the Remembrance of ME, to who and what I REALLY Am … to what YOU are TOO.

YOU ARE TOO. You are my Beloveds.

And so as you read this, SENSE the fragrance of His words, feel the sensation they evoke as you breathe them in … “Go within or go without.” It’s really up to you … Breathe in “So” (“I Am”) and out “Hum” (“That.”)

Sit by yourself, even if for just 10 minutes a day initially and gently and softly allow yourself to become aware of that FELT sense INSIDE of you that FEELS like ‘you,’ your sense of existence, your sense of I Am (in your Spiritual Heart Center.) If this seems tricky in the beginning, that’s alright, feel for me there and Trust the feeling of That. Befriend this sense, get to know it by FEELING it and in turn, in it’s recognition, it will RESPOND to your touch in ways beyond all description in words …

You truly are Loved and held in That Infinite Light of Love, a Light and Love that could never, would never, let you go. Know That.

And just to remind you of the words of the Great Sufi Saint that we started with …”

“All you need is already within you, only you must approach your self with Reverence and Love. Your own Self is your ultimate teacher. The outer teacher is merely a milestone. It is only your inner teacher that will walk with you to the goal, for he is the goal. That which sees all this, and the nothing too, is the inner teacher. He alone is, all else only appears to be. He is your own Self, your hope and assurance of freedom; find him and cling to him and you will be saved and safe. Since he is in you and with you, the difficulty cannot be serious. Look within and you will find him.”

~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
