Traces of Light Behind

If someone is intelligent spiritually, the past holds many traces of Light. Not a hazard. It stores many lessons and nutrition of maturity.

Like other young people, Guruji was also influenced by the environment when he was young. According to a Harvard University research, more than 80% of young people want to be rich and famous.

By God’s blessing, these desires were all fulfilled. At the age of 38, Guruji was the leader of a big company. Complete with all its luxury and fame.

Out of the blue, in the same year, Guruji’s life was very troubling: “He went to ER five times a year, his son got bullied at school, and there was the Bali bombing incident which made Guruji cry for two weeks without knowing the reason why”.

It was at that point that the turning point occurred. From material life to spiritual life, from living outside to living inside, from love of work to love of family.

At first there were doubts. Especially about finances. But after living it sincerely, now it’s been more than 20 years, there are always beautiful doors that open.

The lesson is, imitating others is not prohibited. But once you mature enough, learn to seek inward. The real gems are hidden inside.

In 2008 when Guruji was studying at the top of the Himalayas, on the first night he dreamed of seeing a hand pointing to the solar plexus. Later on, he became sure, because the nearest Light appeared in Pura Dalem.

He is strengthened by the conclusion of the famous psychologist Carl G. Jung: “Those who seek outside dream, those who find inside awake”. He who seeks outside must be lost.

He who finds within is enlightened. At a no longer young age, these words of Carl G. Jung have been embodied. Not just a mere speech.

Further guidance for young students, be careful. Not many people have spiritual “guts” like this. The shocks and trials were very high.

As far as Guruji personally experienced it, in many places (including holy places) one where Guruji got kicked out. Mainly because Guruji’s energy is on the opposite of the energy of most people.

In the story of Mahatma Gandhi and Jesus Christ were even killed. Once again choose your path carefully. The most convincing compass is inside.

May all beings be happy. May all Compassion friends are all in good health and always be happy.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
