I feel as if I’ve waited my whole life for 2011, and in many ways I have. So much of what the Siri Singh Sahib taught us was in preparation for these times.
I am so grateful for that guidance. As the Minister e-newsletter team met to plan the four issues for 2011, the prescient words of these songs ran through our thoughts: “From the air came the beginning; this is the age of the True Guru. This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.” We were told life would be different by November 11, 2011 and it already is!
In this first issue we ask our authors, How do you relate to this time? How do you bring this change of the age into your being, into your daily life, into your work? Is it different, and if so how, being no longer “on the cusp” of this age? How is today different from yesterday?
What implications are there for you personally and as a Minister? The second and third issues will continue along this theme with an emphasis on technology or tools you use to cope and excel with all of these changes. The fourth issue will focus on how the Ministry is the heartbeat of the Dharma in this age.
My experience is that time and space are racing faster now than I can ever remember. It’s February and you will soon be receiving your renewal letters for 2011. It’s a non-exam year, a great time to catch up if you are behind. Let us unite our energies and deliver the destinies we are blessed to have.
Despite the personal demands, I feel an inner joy blossoming, that by Guru’s Grace will flower into a magnificent reality. I am excited, energized and uplifted. Something deep inside is carrying me and I am eternally grateful for it.
