I was attending a spiritual retreat. I had just been sitting in an outdoor area, listening to a question and answer session. It had become cool and I did not have a wrap. The person seated next to me noticed that I was cold and offered to warm me by sitting shoulder to shoulder with me. I was very moved by this gesture and lost my ability to concentrate on the speaker.
From this activity I went to join my daughter and granddaughter in the line for Amma's darshan. As I knelt before Amma, I began to cry and Amma began to drop rose petals on my head. It felt as though I was crying rose petals. I suddenly felt the oneness of everything. The realization that Amma and I and everything and everyone are one in God and one in God's love.
I remained in this state for nearly 2 days. I could function (walk, eat, etc.) but the actions were as though through a veil. I wished I could remain with this “knowingness” always. In a way, I have remained with it because I remain absolutely certain that we are one in God's love.
