Looking at and hearing the flowing of the water reminded me of the passing of time. I thought about how time goes by very quickly, never to return. Soon I felt connected to the present moment, as I realized it is the most precious time I have.
It made me very happy and infinitely grateful to consider that all my present moments are filled with Gurumayi's presence and grace.
After doing all I could to prepare for an important conference call, I still felt a little nervous. So I visited the Siddha Yoga path website to center myself and refocus my thoughts.
I am so happy I did this. Just sitting quietly, listening to the water and watching it change shape—as light and shadow danced through it—brought me stillness. It restored me to a sense of contentment and calm as I experienced the sounds of sacred mantras cascading through and with the moving water. This was just what I needed to quiet the busy thoughts of my mind.

Watching this video, I felt as though my mind was being cleansed. It brought me the realization that my task in this life is to stay steady in the awareness that I am not the body, I am the Self. I resolved to allow the challenging circumstances of life to wash past me and to do my best to let go of attachment to them. This resolution has centered me and given me a sense of calm, commitment, and focus.
