I began my grace-filled journey on the Siddha Yoga path 41 years ago, and since then, I have meditated every day. So I was especially looking forward to what I would discover when I received Gurumayi's Message for 2015:
From the start, I incorporated Gurumayi’s Message into my daily practice. I became aware of the power of Gurumayi's sankalpa within each word, and my experience of this power continued to grow stronger as I meditated with her Message each day.
Upon sitting for meditation—after setting an intention, and offering a prayer—I silently repeated Gurumayi's Message three times, with focused and heartfelt attention. As I focused on the phrase Turn Inward, I felt a subtle energy pulsating at a deeper level of my being. When I shifted my focus to that energy, my mind became still, and my awareness merged into what felt like an ocean of sweet, tranquil, vibrant energy.
As I focused on the phrase Meditate Easefully, I felt encouraged to let go of everything I identify with that keeps me feeling separate. I was drawn to the divine Reality at the core of my being. There was no longer an “I”—rather, there was a full sense of oneness, of love, beauty, and divinity far beyond the ordinary world of the mind.
Making the effort to practice Gurumayi’s Message has changed my meditation experience. It has brought forth, within me, a more constant awareness of my inner Self. Throughout the day, I enjoy a new freedom to experience the steadiness, serenity, and love that arise naturally from within.
