Gurumayi’s Message for 2015 has helped me forge a new relationship with time. While meditating, I have become aware of a particular quality of time—it isn’t linear.
In meditation, my awareness is free of the constraints of time; I am not seeking anything in the future, or anything from the past. I am subtle and vast. Each moment arises from and dissolves into perfection.
When I finish meditating, I have learned to stay for several minutes and reflect on those moments when time expanded. I consciously gather up my experience. Then I am able to return to it during the day.

We study Gurumayi’s Message in family satsang. I’ve learned that God dwells in my heart and I can experience God’s presence through the Siddha Yoga practices. By doing practices like meditation, mantra japa, and namasankirtana, I can enter within.
In satsang we practice meditation by focusing on the mantra and the breath. I feel good due to my practice of meditation. My mind becomes fresh when I experience a focused state of mind.
I am grateful to Gurumayi for guiding us in meditation. I am grateful to Gurumayi for showing us the path of love and for giving us the experience of this love.

My meditation practice has taken on wonderful new qualities this year. I have become more attuned to the subtle movements of the inner energy. It rises in the form of a powerful and stable column that runs through my core, holding me steady as my mind is drawn into a state of perfect stillness.
I’ve seen the fruits of my meditation practice flow into my work as a teacher. I’ve become more spontaneous, generously sharing knowledge as my interest in, and love for, my students grows.

When I meditate, my heart rests and it becomes happy. When I chant, I feel that the world is pretty. It is like a star.

Before, it seemed I could not find time to meditate. But when I saw the form of Gurumayi’s Message as TIME, I decided to find time this year for spiritual practice.
My meditation practice has been very fruitful. In meditation I pause; I find the inner strength to notice, and then to choose, the things that are beneficial in my life. I can see how making time for spiritual practices has led to progress in sadhana as well as growth in my personal life.

When I recall and silently repeat Gurumayi’s Message to myself—even in the midst of my daily routine—I immediately tap into my experience of meditation.

After I meditate, I like to stay all alone and quiet for a while, as this helps me understand what came to me in meditation. Then I become very energetic and very happy.
There have been many benefits for me from practicing Gurumayi’s Message and meditating. The main thing that has changed is my behavior. I have become more polite and soft. Meditation has also helped me to become more bold and strong and also very lovable. These benefits keep me wanting to meditate again and again.

Gurumayi’s Message for 2015 has fully supported me to become more aware of the great space of the Heart.
When I contemplate Gurumayi’s Message and practice it, I find that I can more easily touch the inner depths of my being. In this space I feel my Guru’s love, and it is truly endless, like an ocean. More and more, I feel the purpose of my life is to go deeper into this ocean.
