Prem is your own signature vibrational frequency of TrueLove; your passion and Dharma. Prem is inseparable from who you are in truth. It is the unique essence of your love signature. Like a single violin in the stringed section of a philharmonic orchestra. Or perhaps even a single note on one of the strings of said violin. Isn't it worth finding out the essence of your own particular brand of love?
When I gave up lying I felt scared and vulnerable. I was unprepared for the amazing journey I was embarking upon. 100% No Lying is a living philosophy that requires radical acceptance of all truth - even when I din't want to feel icky and would rather not look at the whole truth completely, or when I didn't want to speak the words aloud because I would have to bear the burden of my own choices, feel the shame, guilt and fear of rejection.
And yet, I did it. I committed to purging my being of all lies, regardless of my discomfort level. "Breathe through the discomfort of your feelings," became the mantra I clung to as a life raft lost at sea. I stood firmly in my heart and watched the life I'd created so far come tumbling down like a burning tower of ego-gratifying lies. And this fire was purifying. Only the essential remained. सत्याग्रह | Satyagraha, satya: "truth", graha: "insistence" or "holding firmly to", or holding onto truth or truth force is who I am; a devoted seeker of truth. Natural curiosity embodied.
Prem is to hold TRUTH as your first love. By loving the truth I've come to know inner peace, deep silent stillness. Loving the truth with all of my heart has brought me harmony and joy in life. I learned how to speak the truth in a compassionate neutral manner. I transformed my relationship with food, my body, mind, heart, soul and spirit. My sleep is sound, deep and nourishing. I awaken each morning refreshed and ready to start my day anew, to begin again with joyful expectation and playful childlike curiosity. Practicing aparigraha - non-attachment. Faithfully following my heart's bliss. The song of my soul playing sweetly in my ears. Passionately embracing my life whole-heartedly and in the highest love.
Truth is self-effulgent; warm and brilliant as sunshine. Truth is the most beautiful music to my ears. My prem is to love truth passionately with all of my heart and to seek truth in all, as the highest of all devotional ideals. May all beings everywhere be happy and free.
Om Namah Shivaya,
