This is a small part of what I wrote yesterday, just giving you an idea of how I like to play. I know this isn't much, but it doesn't have to be
because the story in itself is everything. This translation of the story is from Eknath Easwaran.
 
The Upanishads are ancient wisdom texts. The word "Upanishad" can be translated as "sitting down near" which is a reference to sitting at
the feet of an illumined teacher or guru to enjoy spiritual instruction. To get the most out of this extraordinarily illumined source of precious
knowledge, I find that it is best to approach The Upanishads like you would a collection of postcards, letters, and pieces of paper with
ecstatic messages that represent the greatest heights of human awareness and consciousness. Let's pretend that without looking, we pull
out from the collection, an antiquated letter that is handwritten in ancient ink. (You see, you can do that with The Upanishads! The pieces
work separately and then you can put them all together as well.)
Oh wonderful!!!!! We have pulled out The Story Of Satyakama. Cool, let's see what it's about!!!
The Story of Satyakama

"Mother," Satyakama said, "I feel the time has come for me to go to the home of a spiritual teacher.
From whom does our family come, so that I may tell him when he asks of my lineage?"
"I do not know, dear," she replied. "You were born when I was young and going from place to place as a
servant. Your name is Satyakama and my name is Jabala; why not call yourself Satyakama Jabala?"
Satyakama went to Haridrumata Gautama and said to him, "Sir, I want to become your disciple."

"What family are you from, bright one?"

"Sir, I do not know. My mother says she bore me in her youth and doesn't have my ancestry. She says
that since my name is Satyakama and hers is Jabala I should call myself Satyakama Jabala."
"None but a true brahmin would have said that. {In those days only a distinguished ancestry could bring
you success} Fetch the firewood, my boy; I will initiate you. {Note the initiation by fire.} You have

not flinched from the truth."

He selected four hundred lean and sickly cows and gave them to Satyakama to care for. "I shall not

return, the boy said to himself, "until they become a thousand."

For years Satyakama dwelt in the forest, tending the herd. Then one day the bull of the herd said to

him: "Sakyakama!"
"Sir?" he replied.

"We have become a thousand. Let us now rejoin our teacher's family, and I will tell you one of the four

feet of Brahman."

"Please tell me, revered sir," the boy said.

"There are four quarters: east, west, south, and north. This is one foot of Brahman, called The
Shining. To meditate on these four is to become full of light and master the resplendent regions of the

cosmos, knowing this portion of the truth. Agni, fire, will tell you more."

The next day Satyakama set out for his teacher's house with the herd. Toward evening he made a fire,

penned the cows, and sat by the fire facing east. The fire spoke: "Satyakama!"

"Sir?"

"Friend, I can teach you another foot of Brahman."

"Please do, revered sir."

"There are four quarters: earth, sky, heaven, and ocean. This is one foot of Brahman, called Without
End. Know this, meditate on this reality, and your life will be without end on this earth. A swan will

tell you more."

The next day Satyakama drove the cows onward. Toward evening he lit a fire, penned the cows, and sat by

the fire facing east. Then a swan flew near and said: "Satyakama!"

"Sir?"

"Friend, I can teach you another foot of Brahman."

"Please do, revered sir."

"There are four quarters: fire, the sun, the moon, and lightning. These make one foot of Brahman,
called Full of Light. To meditate on this fourfold foot of truth is to be filled with light in this

world and master the world of light. A diver bird will tell you more.”

The next day Satyakama drove the cows onward. Toward evening he lit a fire, penned the cows, and sat by

the fire facing east. Then a diver bird flew near and spoke to him: Satyakama!"

"Sir?"

"Friend, I can teach you another foot of Brahman."

"Please do, revered sir."

"There are four parts: breath, eye, ear, and mind. This is one foot of Brahman, called Established. To
meditate on this fourfold foot of Brahman is to be at home in this world and master space. Whoever

knows this fourfold foot of Brahman is called established."

So Satyakama returned to his teacher's home. "Satyakama," his teacher called, "you glow like one who

has known the truth. Tell me, who has taught you?"

Satyakama repled, "no human, sir. But I wish to hear the truth from you alone. For I have heard that

only the teacher's wisdom comes to fruition for us."

Then his teacher taught Satyakama that same wisdom, Nothing was left out from it: nothing was left out.
There you have it. Note how important the fire element was in this story! Here is what you can mediate upon to achieve greater awareness,
expansions, and momentum for your light body evolution. You will be Established, Full of Light, Shining, and be doing so Without End.
Have a great day Streams and hope your work goes in grace and ease!!!!!!!!!!!!
