Today we celebrate the 92nd Guru Jayanti for Gurudeva Sivaya Subramuinyaswami.
It’s fun to be humans together, living lives, being all kinds of people. But really, we’re a willful band of colorful, adventure-loving souls. We’re renegades, we’re great leaders, we’re inspirers of change. We’re family, we’re rivals, we are momentary acquaintances of profound meaning. We’ve shaped communities and nations, groups and individuals, but mostly we’ve shaped each other. We’ve been alone unto ourselves in far off mountain places and breathed the freedom of those airy spaces. We’ve lived simple lives, enjoying the comfort of small endeavors and close loved ones, and we’ve lived lives stripped of all ease, fighting for a purpose we believed. So here we are again, doing it once more, laughing and fumbling to settle the score, readying ourselves to leave through that final, crystal-light door.
