Reflecting Your Essence

illuminated grass and dew


“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”

-Albert Schweitzer


Sometimes you meet someone
who sweeps you off your feet
who sees your possibility like no one else

meeting Amma for the first time on a grade school field trip,
second graders, my daughter’s whole class studying about saints
some 19 years ago

Amma sweeps us up and takes us by surprise
taking each of us into her arms like a mother would
Offering a huge dose of love ~unreservedly~
saluting and honoring our inner core

so touching
that some of us end up in tears

she is like a mirror
reflecting that Divine Spark within us



“When you examine the lives of the most influential people who have ever walked among us, you discover one thread that winds through them all. They have been aligned first with their spiritual nature and only then with their physical selves.”

—Albert Einstein
