Our Innersearch journalists report on the final day, Day 10, June 21:
We began our last day of Innersearch with a beautiful sunrise meditation on the beach at 5:45 am, a rare opportunity for most of us, therefore inspiring us to make the most out of the moment. The sun rose majestically over the Pacific Ocean, filling us with bright radiant light.
We gathered for an Aloha Breakfast in the Jasmine Ballroom, where each Innersearcher was asked to give a personal testimony on their experiences throughout the past ten days. The emotions were intense as everyone gave soulful, at times tearful, but heartfelt testimonials of their Innersearch, the lessons learned, the joyful moments that we shared with each other and how fondly we look forward to the next Innersearch. Finally the moment arrived where we all reluctantly parted ways, yet each of us knows that although this may be the end of Innersearch 2010, this is only the beginning of our personal Innersearch!

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
