"Deep in the cavern of silence life reinvents itself."
These words of Gurumayi express so precisely my own experience of meditation; they take me right there every time I read them. When I sit to meditate, I enter a space of deep silence where I feel support and protection—a space where the mind, intellect, heart, and physical body regroup and realign. Then understanding and healing take place.
To me, this is the silent cavern where my life can re-create itself.

I first saw this poem while out in the central Australian desert, close to Uluru, the sacred aboriginal site. I felt very still, and held the intention to be "molded by the power of silence." Although it was raining, I walked to a nearby lookout. The sun came out behind me and above the red desert sands was a full, clear double rainbow! Uluru itself was under a cloud, awash with summer rain, and the native cedars were sparkling with diamond raindrops.
I was filled with celebration and delight! In that moment, I understood that Shakti is always guiding me and that the Guru's grace illuminates and protects my life.
From this story I have learned how to overcome difficulties and make my life "a celebration" in every moment. The tool I have learned to use is silence. I have been practicing using silence during challenging situations. Already I have seen such situations become more positive, and even bring me bliss.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this wonderful story.
On reading this poem, I understand that the story within my own life has at its heart the grace and abundant blessings of Shri Gurumayi. The sheer number of precious gifts and offerings on the Siddha Yoga path website are themselves part of this "play of Consciousness," to be enjoyed all around the world. I am thrilled and delighted to participate in this play.
