Images of Nature IV

On the Siddha Yoga path, we acknowledge the presence of the Divine in all of creation—and this divinity is revealed in myriad forms in the natural world. The beauty and wonder we find in nature can inspire us, as seekers, to recognize the beauty within us and everywhere around us.

The Nature Gallery contains photographs taken in the wondrous environs of Shree Muktananda Ashram, where Gurumayi currently resides. The Ashram is located in upstate New York, surrounded by expansive forests and rolling hills, brimming with wildlife. Take your time as you view the gallery. Allow the images to transport you to the serene stillness of the Guru’s abode, and let nature’s splendor connect you to the splendor of your own great heart.

I love looking at the nature photos taken at Shree Muktananda Ashram. Since I lived there for twenty years, I can feel myself being there as I gaze at each photo. I feel the sacredness of each plant, each view of the sky, each bird. 
 
Recently, I have been taking daily walks in nature for an hour or two since my indoor job is closed. I am acutely aware of each bird, each flower, the trees, the wind, the sun, and the moon. As I studied this week’s question in the Workbook on Gurumayi’s Message, it took me even deeper into the experience of being one with nature.
