I read this poem once again this morning, since I have been contemplating Gurumayi's teachings for 2019 each day this month. Having received some sad news yesterday, I was grieving the loss of a very special soul. As I read “The Voice of the Breeze,”
light infused my heart and being. I am reminded that everything has its season, and that even though losses are never easy, they contribute to this extraordinarily rich tapestry of the human experience.
What an immeasurable blessing it is to read the words of one so illumined that we can be transported to this place of peace, light, and faith. What a blessing this poem is, and what a blessing it is to be on this path!

Gurumayi says: "Your mind will dance in ecstasy when it encounters its own light." I appreciate Gurumayi's constant reminder that we carry the divine light. We are the Self.
I have searched my whole life for “this fragrance” and I found it in Gurumayi’s sweet love in my heart.

I am deeply grateful to Gurumayi for this beautiful and magnanimous gift filled with splendor.
The breeze that caresses my cheek
with the soft fragrance of spring blossom
lets me know
that your love is in the nearness…
now reminds me
so touchingly present
that my whole being
is absorbing this sweetness…
the tears of longing
are granted the freedom to flow
refreshing my ecstatic, unbounded spirit…
the grace of love pouring through your gaze
is to experience the bliss, the wonder, the blessedness
of this amazing life…
holds my heart in its eternal nature.

I carry Gurumayi’s poem “The Voice of the Breeze” everywhere with me— in my head and on my phone. For me, this poem is a treasure trove, laden with references to Shri Guru's ethereal presence.
At times when I recite the poem to myself, my throat fills, my gaze softens and turns inward, and I feel the healing embrace of unconditional love within me. And I know that I am loved.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this priceless gift.

On reading this poem, I was reminded of the sacred journey of Shri Kundalini Shakti—of how it gently passes through each chakra and constantly unfurls higher understanding, ultimately bringing us face to face with our true reality and filling us with ecstasy and bliss.

I feel so blessed and fortunate. These words are sparkling in my heart.
Each day I open
The eyes roaming like bees
Drawing the secret nectar of You in
A flash of sunlight,
The wag of the dog's tail,
The smile in a person's eyes.
Each day, roaming this fragrant world--this wonderful world! Oh! What a wonderful world!
And another drop of nectar bathes the honeycomb of The Heart.
The Queen is enthroned
And The Queen drinks deep

Reading these sublime words lifts me high above worldly matters and opens the door to the presence of my beloved Gurumayi.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for guiding me with your light, for encouraging me every step of the way to become this light, and for leading me through your words and music to a place of peace and equanimity.

As I listened to the exquisite words of this poem today, I felt my heart burst open and the sweetest ecstasy filled my entire being. Tears filled my eyes.
All through the day, these words returned to my mind, and I continued to bathe in the poem’s precious waters.
What a blessing to have this path! What a blessing to have our beloved Gurumayi to sweeten our hearts and lead us back to remembrance of who we truly are.
