Through the grace and love of my beloved Guru, Gurumayi, I have experienced the value of a human birth. One way I respect and honor my human birth is through a regular practice of meditation. And, in meditation, I have experienced oneness with my own Self.
Thank you, Gurumayi!

For me, each of these Words of Illumination has further expanded the wisdom of those previously presented. The teaching on mumukshutva
reawakened my wholehearted intention to know the Truth and led me to focused study of the subsequent Words of Illumination. I have taken in these exquisite teachings over and over, immersed myself in their grace and wisdom, and recognized their invitation for me to embrace the power they invoke to know the Truth and act with grace in the world.

I feel deeply grateful as I read these words, knowing that the purpose of my life has become crystal clear—to know God as my own Self. Through the Guru’s grace, I have experienced this Truth. Even if only for a fleeting moment, the profoundly intimate and personal connection with my true Self is such a powerful experience—one that I can remember and relish. I also rekindle this incredible gift of grace by actively engaging with the teachings and spiritual practices given by the Guru. Over time, the experience of myself as innately divine is more frequent and sustained.
