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!

For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
