Before I go into the story, let me define who a light-worker is:
Lightworkers are souls who carry the strong inner desire to spread light, i.e., knowledge, love and peace on earth. A Lightworker would have reached a particular stage of enlightenment and is usually bestowed with some mystical abilities that enable them to carry out their mission more effectively.
(If you are wondering what STKC is - It is the abbreviation for "Sai Thy Kingdom Come”).
The Lightworker in our story is a long-time Sai devotee who lives in the USA and has received many blessed interactions with Swami. He, along with his wife, has been conducting meditation workshops across the world and written books on Swami and various spiritual topics. A well known name in Sai circles, he has a special gift given by Swami - He gets regular visions/dreams of Swami through which Swami gives him specific instructions and advices. Since he chose to be anonymous for this story, I will henceforth address him as Mr.LW (for LightWorker).
Now to the story:
On August 25, 2012, I was invited to a Sai Satsang in Pennsylvania to talk about STKC and my thoughts on Swami's return. There I met a very loving group of Sai devotees; most of them had already read the book. I really enjoyed the question-answer session from which I learnt a lot and it was amazing to experience how Swami teaches you through other devotees. It was great to hear many perspectives about Swami's return.
Two days later I received an email from one of the participants of the Satsang. In the email she mentioned about another Satsang she attended the next day, which was conducted by Mr. LW. The short version of the email is that during the Satsang Mr. LW told a very interesting story that included the book STKC, and a validation directly from Swami! She also mentioned that it would be better to hear the story directly from the person himself and gave me an email address to contact him.
I wrote to Mr. LW and asked about a possibility to meet in person, possibly at my home. I got a very loving reply from Mr. and Mrs. LW who lovingly accepted the invitation to come to our house. We had a great time and spent about 3-4 hours talking about Swami. My wife Suma and I listened with much interest to the amazing stories of their interactions with Swami. Then came the part that I was eagerly waiting for:
Mr. and Mrs. LW had been on a trip to Perth, Australia to conduct some meditation workshops. Two nights before they left Australia to return to the US, Swami told Mr. LW in a vision that He would be sending him a very important message and it would come through one of his friends. Swami also gave him the name of the friend who would give that message. Swami further indicated that the message was being sent through another person so that Mr. LW would “listen”, for Swami had already been giving the message directly.
The very next day they had a workshop to deliver in the city. The day following the workshop they would depart from Perth. At the hotel where the workshop was being held there was only one parking spot left in the garage when Mr. and Mrs. LW arrived in the morning. The spot they were grateful to receive was just in front of the elevator doors leading to the lobby and meeting rooms. When they finished the workshop and returned to the car to leave the hotel, they noticed a book and note tucked under the windshield wiper. Mr.LW retrieved the items, and it was the "Sai Thy Kingdom Come" book along with a message about how it had come to be there. Guess who the message was from? – It was from the same friend that Swami had mentioned in Mr.LW's vision!
The next morning, as they were readying themselves to leave for the airport, Mr. and Mrs. LW reached their messenger friend by phone to enquire further about the book and the message. At this time she detailed her own messages and instruction received by Swami which had led her to leave the book under the windshield. She had been staying a few hours' drive from Perth when she received a clear and urgent instruction from Swami to leave her location, drive back to Perth, find Mr. and Mrs. LW at the hotel, and give them the book STKC. So, of course she had to do that! As she arrived the couple were still in their workshop and in the middle of a meditation so the lights were out and she could not enter. She asked the front desk if the couple had taken a room in the hotel and if she could leave a package for them. She was told they were not staying in that hotel. Upon inquiring if she could look in the garage for their car she was told that this would be futile, as all the spots in the parking garage were allocated already to overnight guests and there would not have been a spot for their car when they had arrived that morning. She asked if she could please enter the garage anyway just to satisfy herself and the staff person kindly agreed. And to help her search effort, the car was sitting directly in front of the elevators in the spot Swami had clearly saved for them at the hotel! She left the book and the note, satisfied that she had done as Swami asked, and drove away without speaking to them about it.
Mr. & Mrs.LW are convinced that through this incident Swami was confirming the message given in STKC and it makes me very happy to share it with all the readers. Many other things came out of our discussion with the blessed couple. They mentioned to us about confirmations from Swami in various ways about His imminent return and that the world would be completely changed around or before 2015. One of the things Swami told them was: "people are busy looking all around for Prema Sai but how many know that the Sathya Sai form is not done yet?". Swami also mentioned to them that He was currently in Sai Loka (one of the universes in the spiritual realm) and will be back soon!
