Reading the shares today, and thinking about "Natural," I remembered a moment this weekend when I was outside with my dog. It was raining gently, very quietly, and I noticed the rhythm of the raindrops in the storm drain. The rhythm was danceable, and so natural. It made me smile and appreciate being able to see and hear the wonderful creativity that exists everywhere.

When I first saw "Compose" written in such a lovely musical font, I immediately thought of musical composition. Then I realized that the same word, which can be applied to creating a musical piece, also refers to making oneself calm or tranquil.
With this understanding, I accepted "Compose" as a command. I stopped and listened to the sounds of the namasankirtana
that has been playing softly in my mind since I played Gurumayi's CD of it earlier today. I became composed.
Thank you, Gurumayi. I realize that I can do this at any moment.

When I saw this new teaching by Gurumayi, I felt delighted, mystified, quiet, contemplative, and engaged, in rapid succession. I felt invited to delve into the mystery and promise of these words.
“Compose” calls upon me to be a conscious agent, and invokes creativity and musicality.
“Harmony” invites me to listen, taking cues from my environment and the sound of everyone within it; and to blend my voice— the sound of my own being—into an uplifting soundscape.
“Attunement” gently focuses me toward the means to channel this delightful effort. “Natural” suggests that my ability to make this effort is inherent within me, God-given, so the outcome will be easeful.
"Tonality" is another divine clue that I am a drop within the ocean, that I exist within a fabric of consciousness—a family of color and tone—and that I can dance and play in a delicious revelry of sound.
Thank you, Gurumayi.

As I read the words posted on the homepage of the website this morning, my breathing became steady very easefully. I paused, and was drawn within, so I closed my eyes. I began relishing the steady dance of the breath coming in and going out. It took me very deep within where I began to experience peace and gratitude. I became lighter and lighter with each breath.
Thank you, beloved Gurumayi, for blessing me with the amazing prasad
of your teachings.

When I view the teaching, each word is so delicately written and flowing, like the outbreath singing a divine tune and dissolving back into the Self. When my eyes focus on “Attunement," I think of the power of chanting that attunes us all to our oneness.

All the Siddha Yoga chants are composed of musical notes in a natural harmony and tonality, which helps me to attune with my Self and the universal Self.
