Viewing these photos from New Year’s Day 2019 evoked feelings of joy and gratitude in me. The whole year flashed back and brought up memories for all the opportunities Gurumayi has given me in various forms to practice her Message . The photo of the rangoli picture especially connected me to my experience of engaging with the workbook on Gurumayi's Message for 2019.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your constant guidance and love!
I found Shri Krishna Devadeva
, the namasankirtana
composed by Gurumayi, to be intoxicating, mesmerizing, and exquisite! I find myself humming it throughout the day. I go to sleep with the chant embedded in my consciousness and wake with the sound of the chant melodically repeating itself.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for sharing your love of chanting in this perfect way.

When I saw the photographs of Gurumayi holding a snake, the first word that came to mind was fearlessness
. This snake might seem like a scary creature to some. But it’s clear to me that Gurumayi isn't afraid, and that she's holding her slithery friend with love.
In my life, there are times when I fear I won't have the energy or drive to achieve what I want. Fearlessness
was just the word I needed to hear!

When I first heard the beautiful melody that accompanies this photo gallery, just listening to it brought me happiness. I felt like I was sitting in the court of a king, listening to one of the expert court musicians playing. It gave me a very royal feeling, a feeling of sweet freedom in my own soul, freedom from all the worldly thoughts—and the confidence of being on the right path in life.
A translucent leaf, resting on cloth dyed in the Guru’s colors—that’s how I want to be. May her colors shine through me as they do this leaf. That is my New Year’s resolution!
