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.
