Last night, I revisited this exquisite meditation session for the third time. With each repetition, I've found myself entering into a place of radiant stillness. I love the way the teacher himself gently shepherds my mind through the exploration of the title and teaching from Gurumayi and then, with a steady hand, leads my mind to rest in silence. This has been transforming my own approach to meditation, teaching me to let go of needless striving in meditation and instead, to gently settle into my heart.

When I heard the word shepherd in the title of this Meditation Session, it filled me with compassion and love for my mind. The images of the scattered mind being gently shepherded and guided to the Self helped me to experience this play as full of love.
 
Thank you, Gurumayi, for teaching me to love my mind.
