What is mastery? As I look back over my life—working in the theatre, as a professional writer, and as a teacher—I see that in all these fields, I was constantly striving to achieve something that satisfied others, or fulfilled a job brief. In doing that, I would often not feel satisfied in myself. What I am discovering very powerfully, as my
progresses, is that the achievement that deeply satisfies comes when I have accomplished something that has developed from within me, that is the result of all my life experience, my years of
and my God-given abilities. This is a true sense of mastery: a deeply centered sense that I have within me the means to accomplish something great.
Following the path of Siddha Yoga has opened this awareness for me in a way I could never have imagined before. I am deeply grateful.

I believe that Gurumayi's attainment is my destiny also. I feel certitude about this as I experience this virtue in my own self.
I am in the process of learning mastery, and in this way, I am becoming the goal of
. Joy is there, together with a quiet contentment.
As I set aside time today to repeat the mantra, I heard beneath its sound these words: "Yes, mastery is who you are and who you are becoming."
Thank you, Gurumayi.
