I am always amazed how close the Guru is. Just before logging onto the website this morning, I was contemplating something when I noticed a picture of Gurumayi that I have on one of my walls.
I took this noticing to heart, stopped for a moment, and stood with my Guru, in her silence. In doing so, I found my own silence. And in this infinite silence my heart began to open and I could feel myself become lighter and more expansive as joy and peace bubbled up from within.
Shortly after, I opened the Siddha Yoga website to find this beautiful message under Shri Gurujnana. And now, as I write these words, I remember that the Guru is always as close as the next breath.

I have just come home after participating in a Siddha Yoga Sadhana Retreat. The fifth teaching of Shri Gurujnana, "The Guru's silent discourse removes all doubts of a disciple," strongly confirms for me the reality of the disciple's unceasing conversations with the Guru in the heart. It also offers me subtle revelations about all that happened during the retreat, which was so intense, deep, and vibrant with light and love.
What a wonderful teaching for me to receive from my Guru as I return to my ordinary life!

Lately I have experienced that through stillness in meditation, the Guru exercises my body, strengthening and purifying it. A marvel, indeed. And when I meditate deeply and become silent, I inevitably emerge free of all doubts. I have total clarity.
. Thank you, Gurumayi, for your grace.

This morning I was sitting at my desk, trying to make sense of a stack of papers that required my attention. Frankly, I was confused and stuck in an old way of thinking and approaching them, and wasn’t making any headway. Then I had the impulse to go to the website, and there it was: "The Guru's silent discourse removes the doubts of a disciple."
In an instant, I felt a deep connection with my own Self. I experienced the Guru seated in my heart, gently removing the confusion and contraction, just as the sun shines its warmth and dispels the clouds.
I have memories of sitting in silence in Gurumayi's physical presence and feeling peaceful and calm. Now, three thousand miles distant from her physical form, through this wonderful teaching, Gurumayi—in my heart, in silence—brings my awareness to a state of complete and perfect inner peace. No doubts, no confusion, no contraction. Instead, a resolve and a strength from deep within myself and an ability to move forward.
How grateful I am to have Gurumayi’s “silent discourse” so present in my being.

I particularly relate to this teaching, because many times when sitting with Gurumayi in an Intensive or in darshan,
I could feel a very silent, subtle, but real exchange of energy pass between us. And in that silence, much is given.
