the contours of Your name.
When I saw that there were so many pictures of nature, I thought I wouldn’t be able to view them all; but as I continued to watch, I just enjoyed them with an open heart, and I entered a space of love, joy, and peace.
Thank you, my beloved Gurumayi, for such a gift!
When I saw the picture of green ferns on the edge of the woods, I noticed that I naturally took a deep breath. The breath took me to my heart and filled me with openness. Then I realized that every heart is filled with goodness, freshness, and openness—that God dwells in every soul!
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this awareness.
As I visited the July Nature Gallery, I lingered on Lord Shiva, the primordial Guru. My mind settled into a deep, sweet stillness. As I savored each of the other photos, I perceived that I was looking at each one through a state of expanded awareness. And I saw these different aspects of nature as unique and yet not separate.
Looking at the flowers and the landscape in the Nature Gallery became a pathway for me to seeing Consciousness in each scene, from the bright sun passing through the tree branches to the solitary flower beautifully set against the blue curtain.
As the month goes on, I look forward to seeing different aspects of the divine in each beautiful photo of the Nature Gallery.
Ahhh, the waxing moon and the beauty of Shree Muktananda Ashram in July! What a beautiful prelude to Gurupurnima! I feel these photos are preparing me inside for the sacred holiday we are about to celebrate.
