I have been reflecting on Kabir's striking words, "Oh, don't become attached!" since yesterday and wondering what they mean for my life. 

Today, when I noticed myself having a reaction to my children's behavior, Kabir's words came to me, "Oh, don't become attached!"

This has given me the realization and experience that, internally, I can step back and just not have the reactive thought, just not go down an internal path of feeling frustrated or demoralized. It is surprisingly freeing! I realize I do have the option to stay present and choose my next thought, my next action based on what is in line with my higher aspirations, rather than my habitual tendencies. 

I have tasted the freedom inherent in Kabir's words:  "Oh, don't become attached!"

While reading Kabir's words on this cloudy, autumn morning, I immediately think, "Remember who you are." As I consider digging in the mine to find the treasure within me, I realize, "I am not separate from God."

Thank you, Baba, for the peacock feather that lighted my being this morning and showed me the divine colors all around me. Thank you, Gurumayi, for these beautiful lessons and offerings on the website. The clouds have parted and I am shining!

Gold has to be dug out of a mine. Work is involved. Focus on God, chant God's name -- it is loving work. Do it while you have hands and eyes, a mouth and a throat.

This message has been coming to me for a couple of weeks now.

Thank you, Gurumayiji, for lovingly reminding me of my tasks and to focus on my purpose.

As I read Kabir's words, this thought came to me: Shaktipat initiation lights the lamp of the gold mine. My Guru's grace, sadhana, and mantra are my tools to dig out the gold, to reveal the shining Self.

I am so grateful for the supreme gift of shaktipat initiation and the Siddha Yoga path.

As I read this bhajan, I am reminded of Gurumayi's words from the Shri Guru Gita Recitation Satsang, "We are fortunate that we can sing."

Shubh Dasera, beloved Gurumayi.
