Me: God, can I ask You a question?
Me: Promise You won't get mad
... ... ... ...
God: I promise
Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late
Me: My car took forever to start
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call
God: All right
Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?
God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one
of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that
Me (humbled): OH
GOD: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
God: Your phone went dead bcuz the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
Me (softly): I see God
God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me: I'm Sorry God
God: Don't be sorry, just learn to Trust Me.... in All things , the Good & the bad.
Me: I will trust You.
God: And don't doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.
Me: I won't God. And let me just tell you God, Thank You for Everything today.
God: You're welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I Love looking after My Children.

Satsang is that which kindles the trust. -- Sri Sri
As literally understood, it is the company of truth.
Satsang is the best companion to the destination. -- Sage Vaistha
So, apart from the above and music, sound and vibration, what crossed my mind, while pondering about what satsang means to me, I have penned down here.
is a game of communication.
is a play of the 'Prana'.
is influenced by the three 'Gunas'.
is founded on devotion.
runs on participation.
is a cry of the soul.
is the culmination of an intensely burning longing.
is an act of letting go.
is surrender, merging with the Infinite, dissolving in the Existence, union with the Divine.
is realizing that 'I don't exist', 'only the Truth exists'.
is becoming the 'Sat' - 'Truth'.
is realizing that 'I am the Truth - SatChittAnand'
Shivohum, shivohum, shivohum, shivohum....
Amar atma Satchidanand main hun.

What is Seva, Satsang and Sadhana?
Its GI, GR & GD!
Seva is a Grace Installer
When you do Seva, you earn merit. Seva is an expression of gratitude. When gratitude is expressed through good deeds, more grace flows; rather, you become more eligible to soak in the grace which is already flowing every moment.
Satsang is a Grace Retainer
Satsang acts like a protective shell, an insulator, which does not allow the earned merit to dissipate through unwanted thoughts and deeds. Satsang is that which kindles the trust, thereby eliminating negative thoughts and doubts.
