In occasion of the events which were happening in Manchester, following terrorism in Europe and discordant events that need the profound understanding from all us, -people engaged on the spiritual road-; prayers and an active comprehension and / or action to release pain and wrong patterns of coexistence must be relevant an functioning as a priority in our daily lives now more than ever.
For some people, devotion is lived, assimilated or understood as the maximum of the unquestionable toward to those who exercise the plenipotentiary role of being yours spiritual guide-s, others live it with a particular renunciation of certain elements, feelings and / or a simple neutral state of being in "their" presence -in a way or another- calm your own mind or allow them to face their new challenges with greater understanding and identity or removing stuck patterns. These processes are given, in each one, by experiences and inner developments, of which I am not going to talk here; but they all carry a connecting thread, love, and their own understanding and inner awareness of why they are where they are.
My goal today is simple, and is to put in writing, in perspective, for those friends who read to me, and in particular to the Diamond Way Sangha -who do not know me, thus today are many of them - that devotion is a private, internal matter; Not substitutable, perhaps not understandable by the one who clearly expresses his process as something that me
So, I beg myself, to serve the one that corresponds, expressing that my devotion is a present state of "recognition in the Ultimate truth -The masters´s clarity-", in the transmission of its laudable devotion, in the care of not to hurt those that surround him or the project to are going ahead, and in the deep sense of compassion and clarity to benefit others. It is a continuous state, which does not need to be "crushed," "pulled out", not listened, or placed at a lower, or higher, limit point. I try to understand the process of the process, the rules, the protocols and the experience of performing such acts, but I also understand the other experience of the mind. My inclination is complete and continuous, inward, outward, marked by the essence of their energetic field, also allows to be spontaneous, generous, capable or be one self without fear. It is the being with which you open your heart to deliver your truth. No matter how words are expressed if them provided the pure intention of benefiting others and of transmitting invaluable knowledges, as such, either, nor the incidents, the disagreements of certain processes, or points of view; this are only process of back and forth, just arguments that lead to other points of convergence. It is the point of understanding, of convergence, where neither forces the other to change, but that process occurs spontaneously, near or far, based on what is experienced between the two energies. It is only recirculating love that understands the process of samsara and paranirvana. It is only amplitude to accommodate compression, compromise and quiet attempts of maximum suffering. And the prostration of the ego, manifest in one snap of the fingers.

It is only recirculating love that understands the process of samsara and paranirvana. It is only amplitude to accommodate compression, compromise and quiet attempts of maximum suffering. It is an amplitude of consciousness to understand what the one, two, three, four or eight hundred people are assimilating into their heart and converting that beneficent goodness that occurs in the clear light of the mind when they realize that we are more than a reflection, a Expression of the other, we turn again the less clear aspects until transforming them or turning them into blessings towards the most suffering and disadvantaged sentient beings. Sometimes, mental states as more like a river, which is subjected to the outside forces of the nature, when there is current and wind, drag what has remained in one place to another where it no longer influences that space, in some cases, negatively-. It is not a state similar to that which glimpses the brightness of buying shoes or eating ice cream. This is only the basis of impermanence, -for me-, so that the feeling of devotion is also such impermanent as it possible be in their continue physical presence; but it´s the grasp of the heart. This a method that work for me : It is to recognize in the eyes of my teachers their inner truth. It is the light that expands, the field that magnetizes everything, the holder of consciences without having to explain it, independently, that many times, we have to go through counter-roads that place us before those challenges, or for those who Are ready to experience certain coordinates and for those not to be part of these guidelines, regardless of one reason or another. Simply to confront them and to understand how to continue upholding our own values and magnifying those of others in the interest of a less harmful and fuller society. Others, will have to confront and release the variety of discomfort or comfort-zone, others to remain giving the greatest of offerings: the commitment to generate wisdom, compassion and well-being for ourselves and for all sentient beings. The one who recognizes this, can recognize or imply devotion and respect, admiration and conjunction, regardless of irreverence, the rational or inferential posture of the debates. Threrefore all it´s about the compenetration field.
