Hearts in Nature VI

On the Siddha Yoga path, images of hearts serve as reminders of the great Heart, the Self of all, which is always present—within us and within everyone and everything.

Siddha Yogis especially associate images of hearts with Gurumayi; they remind us of her love for us and our love for her.

A wonderful way you can bring to mind the Guru’s love and grace is by observing heart shapes in the lines and forms of the world around you—in the clouds, flowers, seed pods, tree branches, rocks, movement of water, and more.

After immersing yourself in the images in the Hearts in Nature galleries, notice the effect on your awareness of your own heart as you go about your day. And you may begin to find heart shapes all around you! You are invited to share your experiences here on the Siddha Yoga path website.

For me, each photo of a large, puffy, pristine-white, heart-shaped cloud in the sea-blue sky makes me feel as if Shri Guru were whispering in my ear, “Surprise! I’m here! I love you!”

I saw the gorgeous patch of fuschia-pink flowers behind the statue of the goddess Quan Yin to be like a beautiful message of love and mercy from her. It was such a sweet way to begin the day!

The photo of the sun in the shape of a heart reflected in a small puddle on a rock at Lake Nityananda touched me. What attentive awareness, precise timing, and exact position!

It reminded me of a stone in the shape of a heart I had seen on a pathway, and inspired me to go back with my camera to take a photo. I found the stone, but not the heart. I tried many angles, and at last I saw the heart!

I learned from this experience that in order for me to see or feel light and love in this world, I must put my mind in the right position. When I find this right position, I feel bliss arising in me, as if the great Self is winking at me.

his magical love
in this enchanting shape
we understand
as a reminder of
who we truly are.
The faithful eye is
attentive enough
to see and to catch it.
we are served with
many, many, many
reminders of love.
even the glorious Sun is
smiling into my heart
in this form of love...
How will I pass it on

The lush white patch of heart-shaped snow in the green bush next to Lake Nityananda reinforces my belief in the playful nature of the Divine—everywhere.

Seeing the birch tree with two trunks in the form of a heart gave me a sudden happy feeling. It brought me joy to think about how these two trees are always together. They have one root system. They seem like two, but they are also one.

Seeing this photo reminds me of my yearning to feel oneness with God, the Guru, and all.

Spotting nature's hearts in these photos is a transformative experience for me. As they unfold before my eyes, they remind me of my love for my Guru. They are another most beautiful gift from Gurumayi!

As I view these beautiful, tender images, I feel I am viewing my own heart, overflowing with Gurumayi’s love for me and my love for her.
