Gurupurnima: Full Moon of the Guru

Seeing and hearing this beautiful video, I am reminded of one of my meditation experiences—sitting by a lake, watching the reflections of light dancing on the water, the sounds of the insects and birds. Very beautiful, so
and such a great invitation to meditate.
When I first saw the screen with the dark blue sky and blue water and the reflection of the moon on the water, my first impulse was to think that the Guru’s
cannot be experienced when we see through the lens of duality. All vision, all understanding gets distorted. Yet when the Gurupurnima moon, representing the grace of the Guru and the Guru’s
enters my heart and my life, it reveals the true nature of the mind. It reveals
, the primordial sound, as depicted in tiny reflections in the water finally merging with their origin.
This reflection gives me the understanding that the moment I see the Guru’s
residing in everyone and everything, my mind becomes calm, cool, and steady. Then I can see and understand things in their true perspective. This gives strength to my
and my life, too, becomes calm and steady.
Gurumayi ji, thank you very much for being in our lives and giving us true knowledge of the
that governs this universe.
I have experienced so much in those few moments of video. And to feel that the thousand reflections of the Moon are us with Gurumayi—so sweet, so beautiful.
Those images so powerfully bring me back to my center. Nothing else exists but that light. Everything I care about is that light. Everything I love is that light. Everything I am is that light.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for letting me be a particle of your light. Thank you for showing us again and again who we truly are.
