On January 1, for many years now, my husband and I have participated together in A Sweet Surprise Satsang. This year, we participated at the Siddha Yoga meditation center near our home in France. My experience of the satsang was very powerful and different from other years.
I felt that Gurumayi’s Message was in every single part of the talk. Each sentence, image, and sound was the Message. I could feel that in every moment I was listening, I was receiving something precious, like a seed that will sprout and grow.
In the days that followed, I could feel a change within me. One morning, as I meditated, I noticed a difference in the way I was breathing. My breath was very calm and deep, instilling easefulness in my body. Then I suddenly felt that something had been released from inside my chest—something had opened at the core of my being. As I continued to meditate, I could feel I was entering a new and sacred space within.
Since then, I have noticed that in my daily life I am more spontaneously present and my state is lighthearted and serene. This is particularly apparent in the way I move around during the day. My awareness is more acute, and I am making the effort to return to the state of clarity whenever I notice clouds are covering my perception.
