Yesterday was the second Dhuni since I got back from England. It was a month ago that I last saw Erico and Heather, and hugged and greeted them and promised to visit and catch up. Erico is now with Baba, Heather is still struggling with her injuries and moving towards recovery.
I always throw a stick of sandalwood into the Dhuni and ask Baba to take what He wants, and I expected to do the same this time. However, as I knelt by the fire there was the strong urge to throw in something specific. Since arriving here I have been struggling with a lack - a deep attachment back in England that has made my home-coming very difficult. I asked Baba to take the attachment and use it for His own purposes. For a while now, every time I feel unhappy I try to remember Him, and take His name. This is a big help. Today, surprisingly enough, I find that I can recall good things and I feel more cheerful and relaxed than I have in a long time. Surprising what a Dhuni fire will do. Love and Jai Baba.
