I (Delcia) am in my third week of visiting India. Unfortunately I have been ill quite a lot since being here. However this has given me time to rest and reflect. Here are just a few thoughts I would like to share. The ‘channelled’ piece in italics is both me and OT (Ortundra).
To be ‘out of your comfort zone’ is to experience just how varied divinity is. The divine connection in this land is more obvious, yet full of paradoxes, and this demands you to step way outside the social and political norms that dictate your own life. There is no safety net here. People survive – or they don’t. You have here in this land the greatest of contrasts – the divinity and the corruption, the colour and the darkness, the chaos and the co-operation. Through the basics of survival – water, food, and some kind of shelter – you come to know how little you need for your physical life. Through these basics you have seen humanity. You have seen cruelty and neglect. You have seen tenderness and close kinship. You see it all here in its starkness, not hidden away.
And here are some inspiring quotes from Mahatma Gandhi, which I saw when visiting his museum and ashram in the city of Amedabad in the state of Gujurat , NW India:
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”.
“Be the change you want to see in the world”
