THE DOMINO EFFECT
The first domino hits the second domino with a certain amount of force. The second domino absorbs that force, adds to it and hits the third domino with the combined force...'And on it goes until the end, until you find you cannot bend.'
I have been writing down Guru Oms' words that I have heard, almost on a daily basis. Guruji was a sheep shearer in the Outback of Australia for 18 years. He came to Australia as a boy of 15, without his family. All of the knowledge that he carries comes out of hard labor and sweat (not books). He is the embodiment of Compassion.(That's why, 25 years ago, He took Sanyas and was given the title SWAMI OMANANDA SARASVATI and affectionately called GURUJI or GURU OM.
I asked Guruji to write down his experiences as a Sheep Shearer as I wanted everyone to know this character..Yorky. At first he declined as he said, "Why would I do that, I had to live it?" Eventually he agreed (after much whingeing on my part) and these excerpts are only a small portion of 35 years in the Bush. Please visit the other blogs I post to with some of the stories.
and the stories leading up to his emigration to Australia at http://aninheritance
(the stories are not in any order..so dive in & enjoy.)
world is dedicated to the words that I hear daily from Guruji.
