A friend in New Mexico just sent me this link. Can you imagine the difference it would make if many countries in the world planted trees at this level.
My son, Sreejit, sent me this tweet today. It was nice to start my day with good news and a sense of hope.
America’s Got Talent performances seem to consistently bring tears to my eyes. As I write this post, my tears are running down my cheeks. I started to cry when I watched the first video, but they began to pour as I watched the second one.
So many videos I’ve seen lately t have brought tears to my eyes. Just saw another one on Facebook. It feels good to experience tears from all these positive stories instead of from all the traumatic things going on in the world today.
I saw a report of this America’s Got Talent performance on CNN a few minutes ago and searched for it on the internet. Watching it left me with tears running down my face, tears because I felt inspired, felt joy, felt hope.
In a few hours, I will be with Amma. Being touched by this video of a young man giving his all and seeing the effect he had on the judges and the crowd seems like a perfect lead-in to a day of heart opening.
As I age, I find myself drawn to older people who can serve as role models in the aging process. I met a woman in Amritapuri whom I think of in that way. She lives a life of adventure even though she is well into her 70’s. The woman in this video is a very different kind of role model. I don’t see myself following in her footsteps, but I thoroughly enjoyed the video. I hope you do too.
I just saw this story on the morning news. I found myself crying for the second time this morning, and it is only 8 a.m. I was so moved by the performance, I decided to share it on my blog.
The first time I cried today was when I read Jagati’s contribution to The Seeker’s Dungeon “From Darkness to Light” event, A Death Bed Dawning.
I just found this delightful video on Amma’s Facebook page. It was posted on May 12, 2019.

I believe that she [Amma] stands here in front of us, God’s love in a human body.

A friend sent this photo to me today after seeing one of the bus ads for Amma’s upcoming program.
