A Bhakti State of Mind

A Bhakti State of Mind

Within Hinduism, Bhakti is a practice focused on loving devotion towards a personal god as the path for spirituality. It literally means attachment, participation, fondness for, homage, faith, love, devotion, worship, and purity all rolled into a single word.

Within Hinduism, Bhakti is a practice focused on loving devotion towards a personal god as the path for spirituality. It literally means attachment, participation, fondness for, homage, faith, love, devotion, worship, and purity all rolled into a single word.

As a practitioner of Bhakti yoga, known as a Bhakta or loving devotee, I express my devotion to the Beloved through prayer, ritual, and vocal sound that emanates through me as an improvised devotional in the moment. A true expression of love and communion. And I am not Hindu, nor need one be to express this level of devotion and commitment to one’s personal God, or simply recognition and acknowledgement of a higher power beyond oneself – the Beloved.

This is the heart of Bhakti, which can be created by you and for you in a number of ways that sing to YOUR spirit.

And one step further is acceptance and surrender to the understanding that you are an individuation of the Beloved, having a physical experience.

When you truly understand this, your outward reflection is of your inner desire to live purposefully within your true nature as a divine being. With acceptance of one’s divinity, the reawakening of the spirit and intention of living within this chamber of physical expression in a state of authenticity and interconnectivity, begins a weaving of the inner and outer worlds as one.

Together we can weave a tapestry of great beauty, our thoughts germinating and blossoming from within detached stillness, so that our actions are born as sweet and bountiful fruit that nurtures all beings everywhere.

We only need understand the true beauty and immensity of who we truly are!

The Angels told me to try asking upon awakening: “What does God wish to experience today, and how can it best be accomplished?” The answer always comes and stirs up a curious excitement and anticipation for what the day has in store, and provides a different way of looking at things that may have presented a challenge without heightened perspective.

Most of all though, it creates a state of peace and equanimity, and serves as a reminder of who I AM.

My soon to be published book, “ONE – Journey to a New Way of Being”, is at the heart of Bhakti yoga, unlocking one’s devotional flame of desire and force of creativity, in order to form a new world within. The outward emanation of that new state of being is what alters the outer world, creating a space for all Beings everywhere to dance within the reflection of their true light and purpose. The book is an initiatory voyage expressed through channeled imagery and the Angelical Adamic Language of God, for the elevation and spiritual transfiguration of human kind.
