While viewing the video of Baba’s teaching, I felt drawn into a state of meditation. When the radiant triangle transformed into a heart, I felt a jolt of powerful love in my heart, and my whole body began to move in my seat. I realize that meditating on the heart is meditating on the Self.
Thank you, Baba!

As I focused on Baba's teaching and watched the Blue Pearl reveal itself in the triangle of light, I had a vision of another Blue Pearl! It flashed in my line of vision as if it were saying, "Yes, I am here, too." The Self in me recognized the Self in this glorious visual display of Baba’s teaching.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for showing us these sacred teachings again and again.

I have been reflecting on all the exquisite photos of the children with Gurumayi and thinking, “Wow, she is teaching them to honor themselves!” Then, lo and behold, this precious teaching from Baba greeted me this morning.
What a blessing this teaching is! How it began to revolutionize my attitude toward myself way back when I first met Baba! How it opened my heart!
I have had so many conversations with myself and inwardly with Baba over the years, saying, “Baba, this is such a tall order. I don’t know how I can do this.” I finally feel that I can deeply understand what Baba meant when he gave this teaching to us. Though I often feel I’m just scratching the surface, it is my mainstay. I remember it with love and gratitude to remind myself of my priorities and to bring my awareness to my heart.
It does not seem possible to thank Baba adequately for this teaching except through living it to the extent we can. Thank you, Baba.

I did not really begin to honor myself until shaktipat
initiation, when the divine light of the Self was revealed to me. Until then, I did not know the value within me.
Thank you, Baba, for all your divine teachings. And thank you, Gurumayi, for the most precious gift of shaktipat

This morning, when I was preparing to teach a hatha yoga class, the focus for the class was “respect.” However, when I shared the focus with the participants, what came out of my mouth was Baba Muktananda's teaching, “Honor your Self.” Throughout the class, whenever I wanted to say “respect,” “Honor your Self” came out, and I was not able to understand why this was happening.
After the class, one of the Gurukula students asked me, “Did you see the Siddha Yoga path website this morning?” I said, “Not yet. Why?” She said that the same teaching that was the focus of the class this morning was posted on the website. I was so surprised, and again I remembered Gurumayi's words, “We are connected." I became so happy and thankful to Gurumayi.
