Season’s Greetings 2022
from Gurumayi Chidvilasananda

Season's Greetings
Click here to share
From the beginning of Gurumayi’s “Season’s Greetings,” I was pulled inside to the love, the sweetness, the purity, and the light—to the magnificence of the Self. Once again, I was reminded of the Self’s timeliness, encompassing everything, everywhere.

I am so moved by the yellow and blue colors that appear in Gurumayi’s “Season's Greetings.” These colors have come to be the theme of my life this year because of the situation in Ukraine. One of my friends shared with me that during the satsang via live video stream, held in October, for Baba Muktananda’s Lunar Mahasamadhi, people in the Ukraine were able to participate. I hope those who participated—and others in their country—have seen Gurumayi’s “Season’s Greetings,” and that they understand that we are all sending our prayers during this time. I also hope their hearts feel loved and appreciated.

The first morning I watched this enchanting holiday gift from Gurumayi, I had been gently musing about the elements in nature and the presence of our three Gurus in my world. For me, Bade Baba is like the ether in my life, Baba is all of the elements, and Gurumayi is my very heart. It was a sweet, poignant, and reassuring open-eyed meditation.
 
Then, when I watched the cosmic video with all the elements dancing, I felt such intimacy with the all-pervasive shakti of our Gurus. I understood how fortunate I am to be under their wings as I experience this powerful “play of Consciousness.” At the end of the video, when the shooting star swished through the heavens, I felt Gurumayi’s blessings enter my soul.

Gurumayi’s “Season’s Greetings 2022” fills my soul with hope. As I looked with wonder at the images in the video, I saw them flow in harmony with the music, and watched the waves and particles of blissful energy filling the five elements and spreading throughout the entire universe, just as Gurumayi’s love pours into my heart. The yellow and blue colors, recalling the colors of the Ukrainian flag, appeared to me as the golden light of divine energy and the blue of Consciousness.

I love our shimmering stars and our celestial galaxy, the Milky Way.
 
When the stars in this video all danced and fell from the heavens, transforming into the vivid, colorful mosaic of hands forming the border of Gurumayi’s “Season’s Greetings 2022,” my heart sang with gratitude to the way Gurumayi is constantly showering us with her loving grace and creativity. For me, these rich and vibrant hands made of stardust represent all of us in the Siddha Yoga global sangham. We are all included and are all participating in the blessings and celebration she is bestowing on each and every one of us at this beautiful, magical, and glorious time of year.

This “Season’s Greetings 2022” from our beloved Guru filled me with awe and inspiration. I was thrilled to see the interwoven dancing of the five elements—earth, water, fire, air, and ether—and above all, the blue rings whose deep blue center reminded me of the Blue Pearl, from which everything has sprung. The shining sparkles from the fire element are, for me, particles of Consciousness. The sweet melody of the flute made me see this video in an open-eyed meditation, and the drumbeats at the end made my body swing gently back and forth in rhythm with it. It was an ecstatic experience of these blessings from Shri Gurumayi. 
 
Contemplating these experiences revealed to me that I have to take care of the purity of the five elements through my daily Siddha Yoga sadhana, and interact with the world with the utmost care for the sake of the sustainability of this planet.

What an exquisite “Season’s Greetings 2022”! When I watched the video, an abundance of light, love, peace, and expansiveness emanated from it.
 
The first time I watched it, I marveled at all the yellow and blue stars. I thought I saw an exquisite  Blue Pearl star in one corner of the sand dunes; and when the gold lights started rising up from the bottom of the screen, I saw them interspersed with various Blue Pearls—like a divine dance of blue and yellow stars. At the conclusion of the video I was filled with light and love and felt expanded like the cosmos.
 
When I watched the video again, I realized that the lights I had seen were not in the video per se. I say “per se,” because there is such an abundance and potency of lights in this video, that when the video is played, it emanates even more lights. I can only imagine how many blessings people in Ukraine are receiving!
