Today I got the opportunity to meditate with a meditation teacher. He has been meditating since 1974. Silence and compassion flowing through him. The room was saturated with his presence.

When it was my turn to speak to the group- I was overwhelmed by divine joy. It had started to amp up when I entered the room, his presence was having that affect.

I spoke about the never ending divine joy that is poured into us with daily practice. And, that the joy is illuminated further in the constant dance of giving and receiving.

He put his hand on his heart and said yes and then my heart exploded with even more Love. I got emotional. Hopefully I didn't scare the new meditators. They were there to find peace and I didn't want my tears to make them think otherwise. I apologized and said they were tears of joy.

I feel so lucky to meet these divine beings.Just felt like sharing.

That's awesome. What kind of group was it (Buddhist, yoga, something else)?

It was at my yoga studio. They offer Saturday donation meditation. I have been going there for over 2 years but never made to this class.

He taught pranayam (basic breathe in to the count of 5 and breathe out to the count of 5), breath meditation and self inquiry.
I just practiced breath meditation with solar centering when he was teaching.
I wanted to enjoy the presence as much as I could
