Bouquets From the Earth

Whenever I happen to see a bunch of flowering plants in the middle of nowhere, standing tall and colorful, I always stop and admire them and thank Mother Earth for her blessings. Looking at these wonderful pictures, I experience the same  joy and happiness. 
 
Thank you, Gurumayi ji, for showing me the way to appreciate and offer gratitude and, above all, a way to reconnect with my heart to experience love and happiness.

Together, to gather, centered, in the middle
This is where we're going
Together
Nowhere
Staying right here
Centered inside
Together 
Gathered
Centered around
our true Guru

These bountiful, beautiful bouquets immediately brought to my mind the power and beauty of community and my deep appreciation for the Siddha Yoga sangham. As I regarded the colorful flowers, I asked myself what it might mean that in these natural bouquets, the gorgeous flowers are all the same color. I turned within and listened. Into my mind popped a commentary on the importance of a community’s working with the same intention.  
 
I wholeheartedly welcome these blossoming reminders of community and intention. The bliss of gratitude wells up within me.

Contemplating these beautiful clusters of flowers and leaves led me to reflect upon human nature and community life. I feel it is my very essence to be part of the global Siddha Yoga sangham, which helps me to flourish. I’m very grateful to join the sangham in the Siddha Yoga Universal Hall to receive teachings and engage in practices that help my spiritual life grow and bloom.

For me, such bouquets of flowers are splashes of color that brighten my day. I often notice them—especially when it is a whole tree in flower—reflecting on how abundant and radiant nature is, and yet, so ephemeral.
 
Nature is so generous, if I just take the time to stop and look.

These bouquets remind me that God sets forth gifts in every inch of my world. And it does feel that they are all simply for my delight! As I relish these beautiful natural arrangements and let the joy expand through my being, I know this is a blessed means of studying Gurumayi's Message for 2019.
