When I first saw Gurumayi’s Message Artwork, I was delighted by its graceful lightness. I felt that it was an invitation for me to bring that very feeling inside when I sit to meditate.

Just before I woke up this morning, I dreamed I was offering seva in Shree Muktananda Ashram. I could feel the presence of Gurumayi nearby. Then I saw an arati tray placed on a puja. On it, there was an image that I didn't recognize at first.

When I woke up later and looked at the Siddha Yoga path website, I saw Gurumayi’s Message Artwork displayed there. I recognized the image that I’d seen on the arati tray. I understood that I’d had the darshan of the Artwork in my dream.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for the numerous ways you lovingly guide us on the path.

All day I had been feeling strangely empty and hollow. Then I had the darshan of the Artwork for Gurumayi's Message. A gentle energy came up from the core of my being and spread throughout my body. My entire being was suffused with the vibrations of the mantra. I saw how, having become empty, I was ready to receive.

This delicate image is a warm invitation. One look at the subtle and magnificent Message Artwork, and I am transported to the stillness of Gurumayi's presence deep within.

When I first looked at the Message Artwork, I had a subtle energetic feeling. It was the experience I have of darshan of Gurumayi, a flash of recognition.

Seeing Gurumayi's Message Artwork, my breath rushed in and filled my lungs. The Artwork was both a surprise and felt familiar. As my eyes moved between the elements, I felt a circular, cyclical energy. I felt the old and the new existing in the present moment, and saw both as beautiful expressions of time unfolding.

As I looked, the words of the Message seemed to pulsate, and my focus was drawn naturally from one to the next by the graceful curve of the letters. This brought me to my breath flowing in and out, steady and easeful, and my eyes rested on Gurumayi's beloved name.

Thank you, dearest Gurumayi, for this experience of meditation. Thank you for this access to the Heart. Thank you, Shri Guru, for your Message.

My first view of the Artwork evoked a feeling of softness. As I gazed at it, I felt soothed. An inner intensity I hadn't been aware I was holding melted away. I was drawn into stillness.

The shapes, colors, and light of the Artwork take me by surprise. I keep looking, repeating the words of Gurumayi’s Message, feeling my body soften, my breath deepen, and my awareness turn inward.

As I look, I am aware of movement, shades of color and meaning—all creating a single light-filled note. This note sings in my heart. And it stirs memories of stillness—of a light and perfect inner balance.

I know I will return to this Artwork again and again.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for this beautiful way to study your Message.

Initially, I was surprised by the simple elegance and lightness of Gurumayi’s Message Artwork. However, as I continued to gaze at it, I began to perceive how beautifully textured and inviting it is. I experienced myself softening and releasing into a space of sweet peacefulness—one that I have been entering more and more as I’ve put Gurumayi’s Message to practice this year.

Along with gracefulness and flexibility, the Artwork also communicated strength, endurance, and stability to me. I felt I was being encouraged to bring these qualities forth in myself. And behind the soft colors, I could sense enormous power, which drew me into meditation.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for giving us this exquisite way to contemplate and practice your Message.

When I first saw Gurumayi’s Message Artwork, a feeling of tranquility spread through my whole body. Even though I was in the midst of a very busy time, I felt everything around me become still. As I admired the Artwork, my breathing spontaneously became deeper, and I began silently practicing mantra japa. My eyes were open, having the darshan of the Artwork, but I felt as if I was in a state of meditation. It was hard to look away!

Now, as I write, I realize that this was an experience of what Gurumayi is directing us to do through her Message, Turn Inward Meditate Easefully. Even though I have been contemplating and practicing Gurumayi’s Message every day, today I felt that I was truly embodying her words.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for the Message Artwork and the myriad other means you give to help us deepen our understanding of your teachings.
