Each day this year, I have begun meditation by silently repeating the words of Gurumayi’s Message for 2014. Their energy draws me inside. As I move through my day, I often remember these words. In challenging situations they bring steadiness. Recalling them as I walk outside, I become aware of both the sounds and silence in nature. Again and again, the Guru’s grace-filled words draw me into the, “space of flawless quietude.”
Thank you, Gurumayi, for the priceless gift of your Message.

In meditation tonight I turned my attention to Gurumayi's Message for 2014, and in particular, to the last four words: space of flawless quietude
. I felt the inner space inside my body as that space, with Om Namah Shivaya
reverberating in that very defined, sacred space, exactly like a chant inside a temple, and my body was that temple.
My infinite gratitude and love at the lotus feet of Shri Gurumayi for the many gifts of pure grace and love coming from this Message.

As I read the complete Message on the website now, it resonates in my heart as pure love. Each time I read or repeat it, it brings me happiness, peace, and contentment. The message is vibrant and alive. It holds all the mysteries and answers that tell me who I truly am: flawless quietude and Consciousness arising and subsiding.
After I participated in A Sweet Surprise
satsang a second time at the Siddha Yoga meditation center, I went for darshan
. As I bowed, my heart opened to a new depth of profound gratitude for Gurumayi and her gift of A Sweet Surprise
. Thanks to this gift, I am living more awake to the truth that we are all one, vibrating in love.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for opening our awareness to the internal space of flawless quietude through the gift of the Siddha Yoga Message for 2014.
Today I was opened to a deeper dimension of the Message as I was able to read it in German. Even though that is not my first language, I felt the words somehow penetrate my mind directly, with a sense of meaning, purpose, and intention that went beyond the meaning of the words alone.
I will follow this experience into my heart and pray for Shakti to unfold what has been awakened.

I was fortunate to have participated in this year's A Sweet Surprise
satsang in the sacred abode of Gurudev Siddha Peeth. My first response was one of complete awe.
The next morning, while going to the recitation of Shri Guru Gita,
I was silently repeating the Message while walking past some trees. Before I knew it, I was so deeply and swiftly drawn into the state of flawless quietude that everything dissolved into nothingness. After the Shri Guru Gita
recitation, while walking toward Durga Park, I began to repeat the words of the Message. Again I was effortlessly drawn into this quiet, still state. It’s a beautiful rich, velvety, still state—delicious!
Slowly it is dawning on me that this Message has the inherent power to immerse my inner being into the state of flawless quietude the moment I repeat it.
What a precious and magical gift our beloved Guru has given us!
a Siddha Yogi from Mumbai, India
With every new posting of the words from Gurumayi's Message, I would hear arising—from the space of flawless quietude—Gurumayi's voice, as she shared each word with us.
Today, as the entire Message was posted, my Guru's voice arose within my heart like a symphony, delivering her Message to me with such love—and then subsiding into the space of flawless quietude of my entire being.
What a blessing to know my Guru will always be with me and I with her. Silent ripples of gratitude flow from my heart to my beloved Gurumayi.

When I saw the complete Message this morning, what I felt was, "Home at last!" This is the home where I want to spend the rest of my life—my home in Gurumayi's Message.
a Siddha Yogi from California, USA
I woke up early in the morning from a dream in which I was experiencing myself typing a comma on my computer—with a kind of emphatic gesture. I thought, "My inner Self is guiding me to ‘pause’.” I have found that pausing helps me to return to the remembrance of my own Self—to the space of flawless quietude that underlies the busy mind.
Today, as I engage in my activities, whenever I "wake up" and remember, I will pause and follow the arising and subsiding of my breath. In this way, I will return again and again to the space of flawless quietude.
a Siddha Yogi from Alaska, USA
This morning when I went into meditation, I found myself asking, "What is the space of flawless quietude?” I went into a very deep and still place, where I heard the answer, "In the cathedral of my heart, where no word has ever been spoken."
Thank you, Gurumayi, for giving me the grace to experience this. It has deepened my understanding of A Sweet Surprise
a Siddha Yogi from London, United Kingdom
I have been reading every single word of Gurumayi’s Message as each one appears on the website. I have also been reading the definitions and the meanings of each profound word. The guidance that has been given in this way produces images for me that I can follow without too much thinking. In a very subtle way, it has been possible for me to engage with each single word, and with every step I experience another level of meditation. And now we have the whole Message in one place!
Thank you, Gurumayi.

I made my intention for the year 2014: To abide in the infinite Heart.
After participating in A Sweet Surprise
satsang 2014, I feel that the Message is supporting my intention.
By practicing the Message, I experience deep meditation and stillness in my heart.
Thank you, Gurumayiji.
