Hi Friends, I wanted to be sure to recognize, appreciate and share with you; this list of teachers and Gurus who continue to be there, or their ideas continue to be there, for me when I need them. They do more for me than I can say.
Also, it’s important to note that I can’t share the names of every one of my teachers through-out my life in one Blog Post. I do thank you all..
Jesus Christ – Yeshua HaMashiach – Jesus the Messiah, or Anointed One. – When I first started my “Search to Know” when I was 22 I began reading the Bible. I was at home that year while Ronnie, my then husband, was making his way to Florida and back as a Truck Driver. I only had a couple of TV stations that worked and I followed one of those TV preachers in my first prayer inviting Jesus and God into my life. It was Pat Robertson.
I began to watch more teachers on TV, when I moved and had more channels. Kenneth Copeland became one of my favorites and he taught me about Faith in God.
I met Jim and Susan Meyers, they were the pastors at the little church I loved to go to. I learned through time with them how the Bible came to be, I studied Greek and Hebrew Language and Culture and I began to understand a little more.
After a divorce from Ronnie, I married Charles Griffith, he taught me from a spiritual and psychological perspective, how to understand myself and my world better. Charles lived for 9 years after we married and also introduced me to my now husband and soul mate, Ken Partain.
Ken’s affection, gentleness, support and unconditional love make Ken one of my greatest gifts of this lifetime.
Abraham Hicks – I can’t ever forget their words or their love. It was around 2005 or so that I was given a CD by Abraham to borrow. I instantly fell in love and enjoyed them by CD for hours daily for about 5 years.
More recently I’ve used the process called “The 4 Questions and Turn Around” as taught by Byron Katie. Her simple method of getting to the truth has shown me the way, often.
I love to notice occasionally the powerful lives and ideas of Adyashanti and Gangaji and Mooji. These three, their truth and their lives have given me courage and understanding to become all that I can be for my Beloved Divine.
Mahavitar (Divine Incarnation) Babaji and the Gurus of Self Realization Fellowship – Through my lessons from the Self Realization Fellowship I have come to know my greatest teacher, after myself. That precious One is Babaji. There’s not much known about him. It is believed that he was born many centuries ago. His followers know that he still resides here to help others come to know their Greatest Self.
Babaji began to come to me during meditation soon after I began the SRF Lessons. All the Gurus of Self Realization Fellowship came to me and they remain with me. They have promised to never leave me.
Sri Yukteswar, Guru of Paramahansa Yogananda, taught me and gave me his face to use when I need to remember that I’ve never done anything wrong.
Paramahansa Yogananda teaches me wisdom and discipline. And his love inspires me to Know God.
Lahiri Mahasaya, Guru of Sri Yukteswar silently meditates with me, radiating gentleness, humility and singleness of purpose.
My most humble thank you to these mentioned and everyone who has helped me directly or indirectly. And let me not leave out those who have taught me through their pain. Everyone is my teacher.
And thank you to you who are reading now. I love and appreciate you more than you know!
With great affection,
