I feel drawn to revisit the creative expressions and the artists’ experiences again and again. The depth of response to Gurumayi’s Message that I find here fills me with humility and gratitude.
In meditation the other day I was drawn to pay more attention to the swirling colors I found within me. I imagined my Self as a painter and delighted in the variety and beauty evident in my own soul.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your Message and for eliciting the abundance of beauty and wisdom that we can enjoy and learn from in this gallery.

Looking at the many "creative expressions" of Gurumayi's Message all at once is very soothing, quieting, and softening for me. It feels rather like seeing the sweet music of a flute.

What I have always so loved about walking the Siddha Yoga path is that it is always experiential. Over the years Gurumayi has invited us all to explore the teachings and our inner insights in creative ways. I studied art in school but afterwards, due to work life, I pretty much let that aspect of myself lie dormant.
Now many years later I am thrilled to explore expressing my inner world in my art. I have begun to take a painting class every week. Inspired by these artistic expressions on the Siddha Yoga path website, I also dedicated my art class time to contemplating Gurumayi's Message, most particularly about light. I had no idea that a whole vast inner exploration would emerge. It feels like falling in love. How marvelous!
Thank you, Gurumayi, for the invitation to be
creative, and for sharing your inspiring creativity with us.

As someone who does not always connect readily with art, I found this new gallery, "Experiences of Siddha Yogis Creating Artwork on Gurumayi's Message for 2017" to be fascinating! The pairing up of each creative expression with the artist's explanation guides me to a better understanding—both of the artistic processes followed by the different artists and of the ways in which they have been inspired to allow their creative process to expand their own understanding of Gurumayi’s Message. So they teach me about art and
about the limitless creativity of the Shakti in guiding each of us to connect with our Guru's teachings.
