Married by God herself…

Today, I reach out to you as a married lady!  Married, in the most non-traditional sense. Joseph Gabriel Mattia III and I were wed on June 30, 2011 in Lombard, Illinois by Mata Amritanandamayi Ma Devi…the Divine Goddess Amma; “hugging saint.”

I titled this post as such, to quote a very close friend of mine…more like a mother or mentor.  Rhoni Groff, who hosts an Amma Satsang in her lovely home with her husband, Steven Groff came to our wedding via flight from Philadelphia; along with another beloved member of our satsang family, Purnima.  We were absolutely blessed and honored to have them there as they are true devotees of Amma.  

Rhoni stated to Joe before the wedding, “do you know you’ve just asked God to marry you?”  I am so glad she said this.  I didn’t even give full consideration to the true essence of this reality.  Amma is the embodiment of the divine…she is a living saint.   We did ask a saint to marry us, and we have now united through this saint with the blessing of what I feel could be no higher.  Ultimate and infinite love has been laid as the foundation and there is no ground more solid!

I anticipate describing the ceremony in detail…yet I am still recuperating after being awake for over 42 hours!!

 

More to come…stay tuned 😉

    That is the cutest picture:

    She says, “You better be a good boy”. and he says, “You know I’m a good boy”. !!!!!

    The blessing flows on in me, rising in the spine, flooding the chest and head.
    After darshan, meditation is smoother, effortless. .

    Blessings to the both of you. May God guide and lift you, Jeff
