Mother Meera

For this I come—to open your hearts to the Light—-Mother Meera

A few weeks ago was listening to the radio show “On Being”, it airs on PBS in my town every Sunday afternoon. ( The host Krista Tippet was interviewing Gordon Hempton who calls himself an acoustic ecologist.   Gordon has spent his life listening to the sounds of the planet and searching for places that do not have any man made sounds.   He says there are only a handful of places in the US that are completely silent.  Noise pollution is everywhere all the time to the point we don’t hear it any more.

The great mystics and spiritual teachers have always taught that silence is where we meet the Divine.  In the modern world there is no more silence.   The TV is on all day long, the phones are making noise, we walk with iPods, cars and lawn mowers are a constant roar.  How can we possibly find a place remote enough to listen to our Soul?   Unless we stop and really listen we don’t realize how noisy and distracted we are.

I now live in the country but there is still road noise, airplanes, air conditioners, alarms, phones and a television.   The first six months I lived in this house there was a TV on constantly in my kitchen to distract my disabled mother-in-law and her caregiver.  I finally started turning it off during breakfast and the silence was like a tonic.  No news, no cooking shows or crime dramas, just quiet with my morning coffee.

The great Indian guru/avatar Mother Meera gives Darshan (meeting with the spiritual master) in silence.   Last week I went to Boone, North Carolina for my third Darshan.  You enter the room in silence and you do not make any noise the entire 2 hour session.   One by one each person slowly makes their way to her and sits at her feet.   She then touches your head and unties the karmic knots and then looks into your eyes giving light to every part of your being.   No words are ever spoken.  Mother Meera knows exactly what you need and bestows a blessing on you.    After the entire room has had an individual blessing she then gives a silent group blessing and then leaves.

Nothing needs to be said.  No one’s egos are fed by telling their story.  No words can convey the highest teachings.    She brings the Divine to each person equally in that sacred silence.

I do not speak but my force changes people completely.   The power of the Divine works in the silence and will change things according to your aim and what you ask for.  Sometimes I can give immediately what you have requested.  Sometimes it takes time. —  Mother Meera


Ultimate Grand Supreme

In January 2012 I was helping my teacher Rachael move and organize her library.   Of all the hundreds of spiritual books she owns she sent me home with Mystery of The White Lion by Linda Tucker.   It took me a couple of weeks to get into the story but once I did then I couldn’t put it down.   I sent copies to a few friends and they couldn’t put it down either.   I watched the movie “White Lions” and looked at pictures on the internet.

I sent a picture to my daughter and fellow cat lover, Alexandra, and she asked why I was so obsessed with white lions.  “Because they are the Ultimate Grande Supreme Cat.”    For those of you unfamiliar with that title spend a few minutes with the TV show “Toddlers and Tiaras” and you will know that is the highest title for beauty pageant children whose parents are convinced their screaming children are having fun.   Any title with three superlatives has to be the best.

White Lions are not albinos but a rare genetic mutation of tawny lions.   They are only found in a small region of South Africa, Timbavati.   First spotted in 1938, they haven’t been seen in the wild since 1994.   There are a small number of them in captivity but three prides have been reintroduced in South Africa.

The White Lions are sacred to African Tribes and are connected to the star Sirius.   Linda Tucker found a connection between the white lions in South Africa and the Sphinx in Egypt, the great lion by the pyramids connected to the Age of Leo.    Now we are in the Age of Aquarius, the exact opposite point from Leo the 26,000 year cycle of the Zodiac.

This summer a white lion moved near me in Pigeon Forge Tennessee to be part of a local variety show for the masses of tourist visiting The Great Smoky Mountains.   I had to go see him since he symbolized that connection to Sirius here in East Tennessee.   The show was a lot of fun and I anxiously anticipated the Lion King section that featured this white lion.   When he was revealed it took my breath away—-so regal and majestic.  White with blue eyes and so calm, I wish he could be free and in the wild but since he can’t I’m glad he is here holding that special vibration in my little part of the world.
