Leading the Senses towards the Self

I feel supported by this exposition—and delighted and amazed by the synchronistic power of grace that brings me this text just at a time when I’m focusing on being more fully present and less distracted in my life. After reading this, my usual practice of repeating the mantra and practicing pranayama in morning meditation felt deeper and calmer today. I felt the simplicity and sweetness of being with myself—something I can carry into the rest of the day.

With so much to assimilate here, I came back to the exposition after meditation and read it aloud to myself. Afterwards, I realized I was using one of the powers of perception—hearing—and one of the powers of action—speech—to help me absorb the teachings. For me, this was a great  example of how, instead of fighting with the senses as I sometimes do, I can make use of them to help bring fulfillment to my life.

Thank you so much, Gurumayi, for this profound, compassionate lesson.

Reading this exposition reaffirms for me the power of repeating the mantra in meditation as a way to open up to grace and enter a deeper meditative state. As soon as I read this exposition, I wanted to meditate and apply its guidance.
 
This knowledge is so useful to me as a meditator; the instructions from the Indian scriptures give me a sense of security.

I am grateful for this exposition.
 
Now I understand what happens to me in deep meditation, when I can hear sounds from outside but do not associate them with anything in particular. In that state, while surrounded by sounds, I am still and peaceful inside.
 
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your abundant grace and guidance.
