Baba’s teachings, Gurumayi’s teachings, one sublime scripture after another—all directing me to know my own Self as God, all reminding me that I am empowered to do this. I have the means—the awakened shakti
in my body, my practice of meditation—in fact, all the practices and teachings I’ve received on the Siddha Yoga path. I have had many glimpses of this truth that God is my own Self. The Guru’s grace and the power of her sankalpa
are the wind in my sails. I am impelled to keep moving forward, to keep saying “Yes,” and to accept my own good fortune and great destiny.
Thank you, Gurumayi.

For many years I have related to this teaching with a strained effort, trying to understand intellectually that the mantra, Consciousness, and my own Self are one.
Now, reading it here, I feel as if I understand it anew. The pulsation, the energy of the mantra that I experience when I gently focus within—of course this is Consciousness and my own Self! Suddenly, it’s so obvious!
In the audio webcast meditation session, “Know the Self,” Swami Dharmananda spoke of the importance of having one-pointed focus on the goal of meditation: the Self. This teaching is illuminating how I can make the right effort to focus on the goal.
I am grateful to Gurumayi for bringing the ancient teachings alive. And I am amazed and delighted to experience this through the website.
