Life is much better enjoyed, and even the smallest things much more seen, then that was, in the santmat period..
There is not anymore the feeling of"actually I have to do simran, or attachments problems, or I have to do my meditation..''so, just go with the flow and enjoy whatever there IS,is very beautiful these days..
I agree with you about the ''ego''..just don't think about it and it doesn't seem such a big deal..

Brian,

Thought you might want to see Pistis Sophia ch. 118:

And the Saviour answered and said unto Mary: "Amēn, amēn, I say unto you: All men who shall receive the mysteries of the Ineffable, blessed indeed are the souls which shall receive of those mysteries; but if they turn and transgress and come out of the body before they have repented, the judgment of those men is sorer than all the judgments, and it is exceedingly violent, even if those souls are new and it is their first time for coming into the world. They will not return to the changes of the bodies from that hour onwards and will not be able to do anything, but they will be cast out into the outer

darkness and perish and be non-existent for ever."

sorry, ch 119
Yes, I'm a Satsangi

"For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same; as one dies, so dies the other. They all have the same breath, and man has no advantage over the beasts; for all is vanity. "
- Ecclesiastes 3:19

Real salvation, necessarily must be a matter of one's own state of consciousness, real knowledge, and understanding of the nature of 'existence'. Everyone will be "saved", but only when they have awakened to Reality. That is the only true salvation and liberation from suffering.

Roger, just out of interest are you from the UK? I always thought that the UK and India had the vast majority of RS sangat and that in the US there would be a few centres.

A question to ex/present USA satsangis, is there seva on Saturdays? Here in the UK we have seva every saturday at the main centre, the seva consists of office work, gardening etc.

I'm from Texas, now living in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have no background in RS sangat?

Being a Texan, what the heck is a sangat?
