AM: If we have to talk about religion, which one resonated with you the most?
Me: Hindu, definitely. I have a very strong connection with India, with the Hindu religion, and with Krishna. As I said, I’ve read the Bhagavad Gita about ten times. It has been for quite some time my go-to book.
ishvarah paramah krishnah
anadir adir govindaha
Me: a mantra that I repeated every day, along with so many others. It helped me a lot in times when there was a revolution in my whole being, and it helped me to find, little by little, my center, my being.
AM: it was the way you found to reach your being. Do you remember how it all came about?
Me: in Santa Barbara, United States. I was walking down a pedestrian street in this beautiful city, and suddenly, a person stops me and tells me about Prabhupada’s congregation, and after chatting for a while, he gives me the book as a gift. I kept it in my room for many years, until one day I started to read it. It took me almost a year to finish it, and when I finished, I started again. And so on and on and on, until after about five years, I said to myself that I had had enough.
AM: You almost knew it by heart!
Me: not so much, it is a long book, but I learned to interpret it in my own way. There were always certain questions about how the book presents certain concepts, especially from the western way of thinking I have, but I think I understood it. It goes beyond something so literal, and the general idea itself is very interesting.
AM: you have been able to adapt the concepts to what your essence dictated to you, and therefore, agreed in many ways with what arose from within you.
Me: it has been a strong connection. I guess in some past life I have lived in India. It is a place that attracts me very much. I am struck by its customs, I am pained by its poverty, I am touched by its tradition.
AM: you have passed through many lives, so this wonderful place is included in this your eternal path. It means then that, even though you don’t believe in religions, as we talked about before, you have a special feeling for the Hindu religion.
Me: Yes, I do. I don’t profess it, but I have Krishna at the door of my home. And every time I go in and out, I take his hands, and I greet him with affection. I ask him to take care of the house, his house, and to take care of all of us.
AM: honor Krishna
Me: honor that which has done me so much good. Who helped me through hard times, who guided me to follow a path, and who I know is within my being.
AM: your I am
Me: today mutated to you. My I Am, my Krishna, my being, accompanying me on this path. Taking care of me, assisting me, honoring you. A way to feel protected. To feel at ease.
AM: a tool to follow the path, accompanied by your essence.
I invite you to watch the video of Matias with the theme of the day
Finally, I encourage everyone to engage in conversation with their own I Am, to listen to what we each have to say to each other. No one else but us can re-signify our own being
