Make the Old Man Shut Up!

Jai Bhagwan!

Today Gurudev took part in our morning sadhana.  Kamini would direct us into the postures and then Gurudev would direct our focus.  As the practice continued, Gurudev began talking while we were still holding the postures.  Soon, my mind began to scream, “Make the old man shut up!”  The moment this happened, it was as if a drain was opened in my body and all the energy leaked out.  At the same time, I heard a voice in my heart and it was Gurudev saying, “There is only peace.”  This repeated multiple times as we practiced and each time the shouting of my mind became weaker and weaker while Gurudev’s voice became stronger and stronger.  At the end, even though my body was exhausted, the ego was silent and there was only peace.
