I see such beauty in the photo of the magnificent Blue Jay. It appears to be standing so upright, dignified, well-anchored, and in perfect balance—all on a very thin branch at the very top of a conifer. To me, this sublime bird seems to be contemplating the world with wisdom and tranquility from its high vantage point. Surrounded by a blue sky bursting with light, the bird seems to radiate so much kindness, gentleness, and acceptance. For me, this Blue Jay represents the heart’s assent, the inner attitude that I wish to nurture and preserve at all times, regardless of external events.
I enjoy very much the enchanting pictures in the Nature Gallery. Each one is unique and exquisite.
I feel it is important for me to keep in contact with Shree Muktananda Ashram every day. The practice of visiting the Nature Galleries daily supports my sadhana
The moon invites me to sing in praise of God. When I see the photos in which it shines through the electrical wires at different points, it reminds me of notes on a musical sheet. So I sing to the light of the moon, which is the light of the sun, which is the light of God. I sing with all my heart, into my heart, to the flame in my heart. It feels sweet.
As I observe and absorb the energy in each photo more deeply, it becomes clear to me that the Guru is always present in nature. I also experience that the Guru is always with me and that she will be with me in moments of fragrant joy as well as moments of sorrow. So, I am never alone. I am so thankful that Gurumayi’s subtle presence is in every moment of my life.
