  • 13. Living From The Heart
    • … it’s all about Love
    • A Self – Inquiry Experience
    • by Elizabeth MacDonald
  • 14. This book presents a dynamic, “in the moment” experience of Self–Inquiry. As you read, you may feel a familiar stirring within you, touching your inner Being… allowing you to re-cognize, or “know again,” that which has been hidden until now. As you read this book, delight in your awakening in this Love and fully enjoy Living from the Heart. - Elizabeth MacDonald - Living From The Heart
  • 15. Use the Inquiry on anything that is pulling your attention outward. Who’s thinking? Who’s listening? Who’s experiencing this experience? … I am … Who am I? Feel and follow the “I” now, fully investigating into this “I-feeling,” this “I-sense.” Require it to reveal its true nature, locating the Source out of which the “I” arises. This naturally occurs as we just feel “I.” No efforting, no “doing” is required. Feeling the sense of “I.” I exist and I am conscious of my existence here and now, as “I.”
  • 16. Now just by feeling this “I,” we are drawn naturally into the Source, into the Self, into the Heart … Deep stillness, deep silence is present here and now. This is our natural state. It is always present. The only thing that prevents us from being in this state constantly is the thought that we’re not that. And if we inquire into this thought, and into the thinker that is thinking this thought, there is only the Heart, the Stillness, pure Silence … - Elizabeth MacDonald -
  • 17. Elizabeth MacDonald
    • Today, Elizabeth lives from the Awakened Heart and shares this experientially. She says, “once the Heart is awakened, it is simply living from this perspective and then, it’s all about love .”
    • Elizabeth met A. Ramana, her spiritual teacher in 1978. During her first meeting with Ramana, Elizabeth had an initial quickening of the spiritual Heart which she eventually recognized to be the true Self. He introduced her to the teaching of his guru, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, and taught her Self-Inquiry, the process for reestablishing the mind back into its direct connection with the Heart on her own. She learned to effectively practice Self-Inquiry while living and working an active lifestyle.
  • 18. With her teacher, A. Ramana, Elizabeth became co-founder of AHAM – the Association of Happiness for All Mankind. After years of serving AHAM as Executive Director and co-creator of its many programs, Elizabeth became the Spiritual Director upon Ramana’s passing. She is now retired and traveling, making herself available for gatherings with the global AHAM community. Elizabeth may be contacted through the AHAM Center in Asheboro, North Carolina, USA. — www.aham.com
