It was very hard to find words for all my feelings and hence hope the words do justice to the feelings.
I was introduced to Sir’s class when I was 13yrs old. I went regularly and was always amazed how Sir was able to explain such deep concepts to us in simple language, providing us with examples that were age appropriate, making it easy to understand. I soon found myself asking sir questions from my life about the problems I was facing and the difficulties in resolving emotional conflicts.
Sir always sat down with me and showed me how to connect what we were studying to what I was experiencing. This soon became a norm in life and connecting study to experience became a habit. Sir was always there, anytime on a phone call and if I felt like seeing him, he always made time and helped me by providing me with a direction.
8 years later came a time when all the study was put to test. My mother passed away in a road accident. I felt like the world suddenly collapsed. At the same time I felt as if the Lord had been preparing me for such a day. Because of the study, affiliation with Sir and experiencing in between a part of me felt very fortunate - that unlike most people I was blessed with a new way of thinking and understanding and having faith in the macro as sir called it - that everything happens for a reason... There are no coincidences in life and even though this horrible unimaginable loss came my way. I knew it was a part of HIS plan and I had a role to play and I was able to focus my energies towards it.
Hence I can't say that my life was altered by the class but I can say that it prepared me, laid down my foundation to face all challenges in my life and to see opportunities vs problems, faith vs mistrust, hope vs despair and know that the Lord is always there and I owe my whole life to this single blessing -the day Sir entered my life and introduced me to this whole subject.!!!!
Today I am 37 yrs. old, and even now each and every single concept springs to my mind with Sir's examples when a challenge appears and I feel immense gratitude for all the experiences that came my way.
Thank you Sir for everything... And 'everything' seems to be a very small word for the gratitude I feel for you to help me connect with the Lord and the Lord for blessing my life!
Loads of love Sir,
