The Sweetest Memory of the Week

What is your sweetest impression of the previous week? The psychologist in one American college used to say: “Every evening try to remember ten nice things which have happened to you during the day”. And this recommendation really helped many students overcome stress and homesickness, helped them look at life in a positive way.

So, do you remember?.. I will tell you about my memory of the last week – the situation which is still before my eyes.

Three weeks ago a 10-year old son of our friends (realized) was knocked down by a bus when he was running across the road together with some other boys from the neighbourhood. His head got such a strong blow that the boy lost his consciousness and was in coma for a week. During this week the doctors could not predict how the process would develop.

We sent e-mails to several Sahaja Yogis in different parts of the world asking them to keep their attention at the boy’s physical and spiritual health and make a bandhan for him to recover sooner. These people do not even know Andrei and his parents but they know that we all are a big family, all the people are one, and if someone is suffering all the rest should and are willing to help him. On Friday, we got several nice e-mails from some yogis which were full of love and vibrations. An extract from one of them: “My heart was filled as I made a bandhan for Andrei today. May the Divine Mother establish Her all bliss on him and Shri Ganesha and Shri Hanumana help the boy recover faster than we human can ever anticipate. May Her love and bliss fill the boy to get well soon…” The same Friday Andrei recovered from coma.

He did come to his senses exactly in 7 days after the accident had happened. I visited the boy and his mother in the hospital on the third day after Andrei had recovered consciousness. I brought fruits and some other tasty things. At one point when I was there Andrei asked for a peach and his father started cutting slices from the peach I had brought and gave them to his son. The boy ate two or three slices and said, “Tasty!” When the father gave him one more slice, Andrei asked, “Treat mum to it”. The boys’ mother took the piece. Then, when his father cut a fifth slice, the boy asked him, “Treat Anastasia [me] to it”. I took the piece and it seemed to be the tastiest one in my life! That 10-year old boy, whose eyes (at that time) did not see well, whose right ear did not hear, who did not remember the names of some things, who was not allowed to get up and was made lie for a week, who had just recovered from coma, who was very weak had enough strength to think of the other people who were with him and treat them to the peach brought to him!..

Thought for the day: “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Dear sisters and brothers, in the Israeli collective we have a sister
    whose name is Irina Gindin. In July she was wounded badly in her car. She has been in a very bad condition for over two weeks. We know that the Holy Mother is keeping Her divine attention on Irina as we notice a slight improvement these days. We kindly ask all Sahaj family to do bandhans on her, too.Though it is not my comment, there is a straight relation. Let us wish a soon and good recover to our both beloved yogis. I am sure our love will help them.
