As I was reading the poems, I felt such a beautiful, awesome feeling of unity with the global Siddha Yoga sangham. These poems are pure love.
It felt to me as if the earth has become our Maharashtra, and as if new poet- saints have been emerging from the heart through the Guru´s grace.
This is satsang, indeed!
As I viewed these artistic expressions this morning, I saw that they convey each artist’s experience of satsang
so uniquely and personally. It felt like I was taking a walk around the world, seeing through many eyes—very heartwarming and connecting.
What a happy way to start this new day on beautiful planet Earth, under the sun.

The poem, “Seeking the Company of Silence,”
moved me to tears. I appreciate its honesty, beauty, purity, and simplicity. It gives me hope, and rekindles my sadhana
with new inspiration.

When I read the poems of the Siddha Yogis and study the paintings and photographs posted here, I feel these artists connect me with the inspiration I receive from the poet-saints.
I experience the brilliant heart of each poet beating within these poems inspired by Gurumayi's Message. To me, they feel so vibrant, so real, so specific, so full of wisdom. The poems don't tell me what satsang
is in a didactic way, and yet I understand—I experience—satsang
through reading them.
I am truly grateful for these gorgeous, nuanced responses to Gurumayi's Message—each filled with love and insight! They bring me joy and wonder, and for me, they are a both a source and a form of satsang
As I absorbed these beautiful creative expressions, I found myself feeling that all these works come from Gurumayi's own Heart. As I reflect on the ways Gurumayi’s love fills my own life, it seems natural to me that our works of every kind will reflect her love.
It is so powerful to receive Gurumayi’s Message again and again through these images. I feel that I am having satsang
with the artists.

I am amazed at the bountiful ways in which Gurumayi is encouraging us to practice her Message for 2018. While viewing the different galleries, I felt embraced by the creative power of photography, poetry, art, and images of nature. What a wonderful way to explore the height, width and depth of the Message through different perspectives!
Lately, I have started experimenting and playing with creative activities I did not dare venture before. Thus, I was surprised to find myself losing track of time while reveling in the delight of notes struck together on my son’s guitar or shaping and re-shaping colorful dot-paintings on flat rocks. I now understand that these activities go beyond entertainment and self-expression. For me, they all disclose and open up the connection with my inner Self and the world around me in a unique creative way. It feels so peaceful to be in my own good company while engaged in a creative project!
Thank you, Gurumayi, for the myriad innovative ways with which you reveal and teach the Truth.
