Ashram Time is Holiday Time - 13 Apr 09

Ashram

Today was a wonderful hot day. It is only the beginning of summer but it is already not pleasant anymore to be outside in midday time. Now all visitors have gone and we had a very quiet day which was also nice. But as I said the Ashram is always busy and we enjoy it that different people come together here.

Tonight a woman from South Africa will come who wrote to Ramona before asking if she could have an appointment with me. I answered that I do not really work when I am here and do not give appointments. I live with a schedule only when I am travelling out of India. Here I do not want to keep track of time. I mostly do not even know which day of the week it is. I just live how I feel, sometimes I have a nap during the day, sometimes not. Sometimes I go to bed early, sometimes late. I do not have appointments here but everybody is very welcome just to have a nice talk with me at anytime.

A few days ago we had a very windy and stormy rainfall in which the flags on top of the cave and on top of the Ashram building were torn apart and blown away. Today Maniram climbed up to put the new flag up and of course we took pictures of how this was done.

It is so nice to be able to let go of time completely! We don't need it here. It's so great to just go with the flow, live in the moment, and do what feels right. Time just creates stress...let go of the illusion!

Beautiful! I hope to visit your Ashram someday soon and not have an appointment with you.
