Instant Realization

There I was - getting ready for an important presentation.
Make or break situation - almost - not so melo dramatic perhaps - but almost...

I was wondering how things would go,
I have had ones that went well and ones that I was totally miserable out - ones that I would love to wrench out of memory and castaway into distant land.

I wondered.....

And, for an instant, I stepped back....magically a thought entered my brain.
This body is not me, it will do what it has to do...
But I am not responsible for it.
The real me is untouched and untarnished by what the body does...
It is like water that falls away from the body of a seagull

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
