Wanted to share how Baba came into this life.
I heard in a dream "Sai Baba of Neem." when i woke up in the morning it was on the mind in strong way. i thought who is this Sai Baba of Neem and thought i wonder if it is Sai Baba with the big hair. then i realized i didn't really know what is meant by Neem and didn't really even know for sure how to spell it. So i went to the computer and googled it the way it sounded and articles about Shirdi Sai Baba came up. I started reading about this Sai Baba and quickly began to realize that i was relating to this man and his words and his life making so much sense and bringing such joy and happiness to me. i found myself going to the pages on the internet more and more and being strangely attracted to hearing about him and just looking at him. i would always google in each time and never had listed up with any of the websites or saved them to favorites. this dream connection was made in October 2005 and i would find myself casually going to see Baba and each time feeling like something more was happening than could put in words. then on New Years day of 2006 i was woken up with the computer playing a Baba Bhajan and his image was on the screne of my computer full screne. this felt important because i knew it was he who caused this as there was no other way for this to be happening....so i got up and went and just sat there looking at him and making a deep connection and asking HIM what he wants...as i was gazing at HIM i was given a childhood memory that was forgotten and brushed aside over the years. i remembered that i used to see HIM floating over the bed at night and when i told people about that they said it was my imagination ...so with time even i brushed it aside and forgot the fullness of HIS face. with this memory restored i felt that Baba has always been there and am just simply back with HIm. found myself in awe and also with peace....it was as if the relationship had become alive and awakened with him. he asked me to form a little group to read the Satcharita and without a moments hesitation i responded. had been reading on line only...so knew i needed to order the book called the Satcharita and get a few things to have for this little Sai group.
i hadn't read the Satcharita from cover to cover only heard little referances and stories as gathered through the internet. so i order the book and started making a little flier to let people know about the group being formed and in the meantime i kept seeing in the minds eye an image of this red trishool. just thought it was awfully curious and would brush it aside. finally the pakcage from the Shirdi Sai Temple in Chicago came with the books and things ordered. When i took out the Satcharita i opened up to a page and began to read and there i was reading about Mega having a vision about a red Trishool and i found myself experiencing the thrill as if i were Mega himself as this corresponded to the very image i kept seeing ... our little Sai group quickly began to form and wonderful miracles have been happening all around. One lady i invited to join with our group was being cordial as i extended the invitation and said i don't know...but in her heart she fully expected that this was not to be for her. then about 20 or 30 minutes after she left ...i got a call saying she will be attending. she was all excited and said that while she was going into her next appointment she saw a truck that had a sign reading "Sai Supplies." This was interesting and curious....just noted. then when she left that same truck once again pulled in front of her that read, "Sai Supplies." this is a truck that she has never seen before or since. There have been many little miracles around the group and many personal ones that continue. very quickly Baba entered my life and stole my heart and no longer can i call it mine. it is all HIS. Heart..mind ...soul and possesions all belong to HIM....and as his words ring true...i find myself in peace. and happy just to call myself HIS. and at HOME with HIM.
OM SAI RAM
