Being There

Being There

To understand something completely, to take it in as if it was a part of you, to drink deeply and fully, to assimilate – this is what it means to imbibe.

Imbibe is a word used often in Sahaja Yoga. To imbibe a quality, a virtue, a mode of living is to make it your own. To imbibe a truth or a talk or lecture is to understand it completely from beginning to end. And to remember it when it is needed.

Not just to recall the highlights or the jokes or the random moments, but to take it in its entirety is the act of imbibing.

But is it really possible?

At a time of emergency, we can be totally in the moment, one hundred percent alive and present. But also in the state of meditation we can imbibe. Only without the interference of thought, reaction and interpretation, can we accept and absorb the truth unfiltered.

To drink deeply. To understand. To meditate. To imbibe. Being there is the thing.
