Thoughts are like The Wind
(Ana Bianca’s photo in Ireland @ Sahaja Yoga Realization Tour 2017 – this photo has an amazing tale of how spontaneity is divinely inspired when one Listens to the Little Voice that leads to a path of beauty and true connection to Mother Earth)
“Let us think for a moment.And we can see that thought is limited: How big is the Universe? Who has created it? How small are atoms? And who has the answer? How can we understand Him who is managing us all? Can a drop understand the Ocean?Our consciousness is a bottomless sea. When the thoughts cease is the beginning of the answers.Our thoughts are like the wind which causes ripples on the surface of the sea.Only when the thoughts dry up can we, in Silence, recognize our own depth, just as the Sea exposes its real depth when the wind subsides. “ (Words of Wisdom from Shri Mataji)
Listening to the Small Voice (author unknown)
“A Native American and his friend were in downtown New York City, walking near Times Square in Manhattan. It was during the noon lunch hour and the streets were filled with people. Cars were honking their horns, taxicabs were squealing around corners, sirens were wailing, and the sounds of the city were almost deafening. Suddenly, the Native American said, “I hear a cricket.”
His friend said, “What? You must be crazy. You couldn’t possibly hear a cricket in all of this noise!”
“No, I’m sure of it,” the Native American said, “I heard a cricket.”
“That’s crazy,” said the friend. The Native American listened carefully for a moment, and then walked across the street to a big cement planter where some shrubs were growing. He looked into the bushes, beneath the branches, and sure enough, he located a small cricket. His friend was utterly amazed.
“That’s incredible,” said his friend. “You must have superhuman ears!”
“No,” said the Native American. “My ears are no different from
yours. It all depends on what you’re listening for.”
“But that can’t be!” said the friend. “I could never hear a cricket
in this noise.”
“Yes, it’s true,” came the reply. “It depends on what is really
important to you. Here, let me show you.” He reached into his
pocket, pulled out a few coins, and discreetly dropped them on the sidewalk.
And then, even with the noise of the crowded street still blaring in their ears, they noticed every head within twenty feet turn and look to see if the money that tinkled on the pavement was theirs.
“See what I mean?” asked the Native American. “It all depends on what’s important to you.”
What’s important to you? What do you listen for? If you are in tune with the Great Spirit, you will be able to hear when He speaks.”

Gorgeous photo Abi! Wow.
So true. That is why we can meditate anywhere, in a crowded bus or train, or in the beautiful landschape above
The spirit within us is always talking to us , trying to help us make the right decisions amd keep us connected to the source and when we don’t listen that is when we get into trouble. This article and the story was a great reminder to check in with the spirit within us and trust the direction we receive. Thank you for sharing.
looking forward to yoga session at Norton Park Burlington tomorrow, mother’s day. I’ll be bringing mine! I tried to sign up for it, on meetup, but I know I can just show up anyway. Lots of room in a park!
So wonderful to have all this information and talks available here. Integrated so beautifully. And the pictures are so soothing.
Thank you very much
Great story. Thank you for connecting it so meaningfully to Shri Mataji’s teachings.
“Our consciousness is a bottomless sea. When the thoughts cease is the beginning of the answers. ”
This line brings me wisdom and peace, as well as more power to not get caught up in the thoughts nor following where the mind is wandering. It just wanders and time goes by…. That’s what was happening this morning, then I got up to water the plants and came to the website for a recorded meditation, but I ended up reading a few articles first.
I’m happy to start here, instead of checking email and accidentally reading some yahoo! news articles.
This was a short and simple article, but most enjoyable.
I feel connected to a clear, vast, ocean.
