The Self as Enjoyer

He is spirituality itself. He is beyond all these things. 
Whether you are a musician or you are an artist; whatever it is you are, He will enjoy, 
as He is the enjoyer.
And He will enjoy whatever is simple, whatever is given with the heart, He will enjoy. Whatever is expressed with the heart He will enjoy. 

- HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Shivaratri 2003

Shri Shiva is the Universal Self, residing in the heart, the Enjoyer of Creation.

Today is Shivaratri, the Hindu festival devoted to Lord Shiva.
