Fifty-One, Let Your Love Flow; In The Time Of Coronavirus


     This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet. Rumi

Fifty, Adopting The Truth Of The Masters: In The Time Of The Coranavirus.

      The truth is, that which you want is with you all the time, closer than hands or feet. Any moment it may lift you above the world and personal depression. Wait patiently for Him.-Sri Gyanamata, "God Alone: The Life and Letters of a Saint"

     What we need is already in our midst. Use all of your senses and abilities to move forward with whatever your needs are. You can and will get that job. You will find a way to pay the mortgage. Do not despair it is a useless emotion that will serve you no purpose. It is easy for one to sit and say you must double your efforts, you must go the extra mile. The truth is what is the alternative of not trying harder raising your head higher, asking for more time to pull things together. Honesty and effort go hand and hand! We will see our way through this Pandemic. The darkest hours are now and we will overcome them.

Forty-Nine, Overcoming Despair; In The Time Of Coronaviris.

      The feeling of despair is real and overwhelming. It invades your being and your home and your family. It is all pervasive and earth shattering. We have nowhere to go an no place to hide. We are prisoners of our own country and the inaction of our leaders. Do other Nations talk and say we feel so bad for the suffering and dying in America. It is outrageous and unbelievable. We are beyond the pale of reason and understanding. We write out of anger, compassion, and belief in humankind to overcome any obstacle or suffering in its path. This is a life long commitment. Where we once were silent, we speak. We shall continue to speak and blog and post and publish and see and say and speak of freedom, Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness for the real American Dream until the dirt is dropped upon our graves. Despair needs to be turned into action. Despair can be overcome, let it be a motivating factor for all of us. We can no longer be cowering in our homes. Now is the time to come out After The Time Of The Coronavirus and stand tall and be heard. Time to completely change the narrative to flights of fantasy, joy, happiness and health for the coming New Year.

Forty-Eight, A Christmas Message; In The Time Of Coronavirus.

 Christmas Message from Paramhansa Yogananda Thank You Ananda Palo Alto

(Christmas, 1928)

"Let us make this coming Christmas season an occasion not merely for exchange of gifts and feastings. Let us rise above the plane of candies and gaudy things. Let us learn to hear the command of the Christ-general within us. Let us discipline ourselves to develop our sleeping spiritual powers, that we may conquer the satan of ignorance, with all his allurements and delusions. Let us establish the Prince of Peace within us that we may meet our crosses and tests of life with power, victory, and tranquillity. Let us learn to love those who love us not. Let us give battle to evil only by good. Let us meet religious bigotry by our inner conviction won by realization. Let us influence the error-stricken with our healthy spiritual examples. Let us live Christ in wisdom, love, and meditation, and thereby show others how to be true disciples of the Christ they worship."

I Believe In Father Christmas, Greg Lake

Forty-Seven, Clearing The Veil Of Maya: In The Time Of Coronavirus



    the supernatural power wielded by gods and demons to produce illusions.
      the power by which the universe becomes manifest; the illusion or appearance of the phenomenal world.

  2. The art of deception appears to be rampant in the world today. There is virtually no way to disseminate truth from lies or deceit. The goal of the powers that be are illusion and confusion. We are gullible lambs living and reacting day by day like puppets dancing to the masters of the bait and switch. It is up to each of us as individuals to listen to the voice deep inside of us to determine what is and is not the truth. Do not be lead by false prophets and fake leaders. We are being bamboozled in mass at the time of our greatest fears and insecurity. We are each responsible for our own truths and not to be just parrots of deception and untruths. When you were young did you ever play the game of whispering a truth or saying in the ear of a friend and have them in turn whisper to another and another, by the time you arrive at the end of the chain the final statement is nothing like the original. We must have truth as the cornerstone to live bye.

Forty-Six, Sing the Song of Self-Realization; In The Time Of The Coronavirus

      Coax Christ today with songs and the devotion of your heart, and then coax him with your deepening Self-Realization. With all the intensity of your zeal and inner perception, merge your consciousness in the happiness within. Forget Time. When you feel joy spreading within you, realize that Christ is hearing your song. You are not identified with Christ if your concentration is merely on the words. But if your joy is singing within, Christ is listening to you. Paramahansa Yogannada, "Self-Realization Magazine"

     This is going to be a long and difficult journey into self-realization. Nothing worth while in life ever comes easily. More often than not the road is unlit and filled with obstacles, creating impossible circumstances on yur path to enlightenment. Do not Fear. Put your faith in your God, and the ability of mankind to survive and once again thrive. It is easy to say the words but much harder to walk the walk and talk the talk in the face of the adversities that are our reality. Concentrate on yourself right now, right here, where you are today and make the supreme effort to self-realization. You and your father are one and whatever that your father has is yours. It can be yours today if you strive to be the best of your best now. Tomorrow is the dream and can be fulfilled by a well lived and introspective day today. We all remember hard times of the past and our triumphant efforts to overcome them. We can and we will get to the other side. You can be a self-actualized and self-realized master of your own destiny if you make the effort right now!

Forty-Five, Karmically Coming Out The Other Side; In The Time Of Coronavirus

      "I am Death the Destroyer of all, the source of what will be, the feminine powers: Fame, Fortune, Speech, Memory, Intelligence, Resolve, Patience." Bhagavad Gita, Fragments Of Divine Power.

     “I will be calmly active, actively calm. I am a prince of peace, sitting on the throne of poise, directing the kingdom of my activity.”

— Paramahansa Yogananda

The Law of Karma is absolute in its completeness, and often swift in its action and or reaction. After the Celestial Event of today the world will change. Times are moving in the direction of positivity. We will triumph. We will excel. I am a man alone I have picked rocks from farm fields, we are men together we can move mountains. Now is not the time for inaction. action must be swift and resourceful. Be prudent in your progress but move forward with great haste. Lesser men in Station have accomplished far greater deeds when the needs arose!

Forty-Four, EmbracingThe Gift Of The Magi; In The Time Of Coronavirus

      Remember when we were Kings! It wasn’t that long ago. We will be again. Believe in this. Jupiter and Saturn align with one another every 20 years or so but never as close as they will in 2020. It is the closest they will have been in 400 years, and they have not been visible, at night in over 800 years. It is the Winter Solstice the shortest day of the year, the beginning of Winter. The opportunity to see the once-in-a-lifetime star. It is commonly called the Christmas Star or the "Star of Bethlehem" The Star that the three wise men followed to deliver their gifts to the newborn Christ Child. The Magi came to honor the newborn King. The significance in this celestial happening should not escape us in this time of new miracles. It is a miracle that we have new vaccines and they are being distributed to front line workers and our older population. Do not let this miracle go without at least a small passing acknowledgement. This should be a Celestial Celebration of Epic Proportions during these very difficult times. We will soon move forward from our times of trouble to our times of prosperity and plenty. This must be the Mantra we speak for what we speak we become. What we are moving forward to is now in our own hands, It is no longer the fact that your leaders have the slightest interest in your well being. There can be no dispute that we have been left to die and starve alone without support or care. We no longer accept this as a condition for us to live by. This is a time of great upheaval and change. A great awakening of Spirit and Hope will accompany our Renaissance as we move into the Post Covid Era. We need to be both prepared and willing to do things differently to assure a greater future for all. This will no longer be business as usual, politics as usual. Things will and must change for our survival. We hope to be right alongside you in this transition leading the way.

Forty Three, Finding Everlasting Happiness; In The Time of The Coronavirus

      Lift your eyes and concentrate within. Behold the astral star of divine wisdom and let the wise thoughts in you follow that telescopic star to behold the Christ everywhere. In the land of everlasting Christmas, of festive omnipresent Christ Consciousness, you find Jesus, Krishna, the saints of all religions, the great guru-preceptors waiting to give you a divine floral reception of everlasting happiness. Paramahansa Yogannada Metaphysical Meditations

     The narrative has shifted can you feel it? It is in the air, in the ether, in the space formally occupied by the virus. It is called Everlasting Hope and it is alive and well among us and in us. It is a time of rebirth like the Christ Child within each of us. Do not have Fear any longer. Fear is no longer productive, positive thinking and positive affirmations are what we need to help us move forward out of the great darkness that we have been entrenched in. We are not yet out of the terrible times that have descended upon us, but we are standing in the light with our outstretched hands. We are no longer beggars in blackness but effervescent beings of light, hope, and prosperity. We are celebrating our survival and fortitude during the time of extreme crisis. We cannot be held down. We refuse to be defeated and with and attitude of cooperation and brotherly and sisterly love we will move out of the time of trial into the time of good fortune and prosperity that lies within our grasp. Reach for the Golden Ring and you will attain it. Do not be disillusioned by the news of today that will soon be tomorrows sad memories. Build faith where there is despair. We cannot and will not be held down. We are a Nation of survivors and achievers and together we can attain any goal that we set for our Citizens and Country. Now is the time for the heroes and heroines that have been toiling in obscurity and silence to step forward and be given the accolades they deserve. We as a people have always persevered and triumphed. Know that we will again!

Forty-Two, Preparing Your Personal Divinity; In The Time Of The Coronavirus

 I will prepare for the coming of the Omnipresent Baby Christ by cleaning the cradle of any consciousness, now rusty with selfishness, indifference, and sense attachments; and by polishing it with deep , daily, divine meditation, introspection, and discrimination. I will remodel the cradle with dazzling soul-qualities of brotherly love, humbleness, faith, desire for God-realization, will power, self control, renunciation, and unselfishness, that I may fittingly celebrate the Birth of the Divine Child- Paramahansa Yogananda, "Metaphysical Meditations"

     Why not take the time to completely put your house in order to receive the gifts that will reign down upon us this coming Christmas. We all need to change our narratives and our aspirations to accommodate the shift in the Paradigm of life that we now are faced with. Is it difficult? Yes! Impossible? No! All around us there are people breaking the glass ceiling every minute of every day. The front line workers, nurses, doctors, critical care workers. They didn't sign on for the madness that has befallen their lot. They step up every second of every day to take care of the errant idiots that we are forced to call fellow citizens. We need to reevaluate what citizenship and civic responsibility really is. We are way off the mark. There are no trophies for being a super spreader or not caring if you infect your mother, father, brother, sister, or relative because your are so self serving you can't even see that a pandemic is right in front of you. Your needs are not greater than the needs of the many. Since when has the needs of the individual become greater than the needs of the multitude. What does Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness mean to you? Surely it does not mean that you get to eradicate your fellow human beings for your own pleasure. Come on people! What has happened here in America? Are we really seeing the decline and fall of the American Empire. I trust not! However my fellow Americans behavior from our Politicians to our Local Community Leaders is beginning to give me pause. How about a little help here and working together for the greater common good. We have decided that since we cannot leave our current isolation to do everything possible to improve ourselves, our surroundings and to write as inspirational as we possibly can. We have struggled with how much of our personal spirituality to share without incurring the wrath of the religious community for them. However when I see our religious community encouraging members of their religious groups to attend mass celebrations in churches, synagogues, and other venues I can't help but have pause to step back away from their teachings and give pause to the validity of their organizations if they believe religious freedom is a reason to kill other humans by group meetings. Heed the lesson of self awareness, and self enlightenment, self preservation. You are the change in the world that must take place, here and now with you. We have hope for the new changes that we see taking place with turning back the tide of the virus that we are in the midst of. Somewhere, somehow we need to change. If you don't we are going to be forced to turn America around and you are all going to be in big trouble!

Thirty-Nine: Touched ByThe Pearl, In The Time Of The Coronavirus

For more than three decades I have waited for you to return to me. … You slipped away and disappeared into the tumultuous waves of the life beyond death. The magic wand of your karma touched you, and you were gone! Though you lost sight of me, never did I lose sight of you! I pursued you over the luminescent astral sea where the glorious angels sail. Through gloom, storm, upheaval, and light I followed you, like a mother bird guarding her young. As you lived out your human term of womb life, and emerged a babe, my eye was ever on you. -- Read more: Paramahansa Yogananda 

     Have you ever had that feeling that right over your shoulder there is someone watching? Something intangible but yet real and moving you forward with lightening fast speed to the unreachable unattainable heights that you have aways dreamed of aspiring to but where afraid to put into words. Say the words this time. Write the story that will move the multitudes. Sing the song that will start the whole word celebrating in joy. Paint the scene that everyone dreams of. If not now when. When will you ever be fresher, more gathered than being quarantined and bursting at your seams to excel. We are there and are among you and with you in your growth. Don't ask why? It is to be. This is the way we come out of what we have never known before. You can and will be stronger, healthier, happier and more productive than you have ever thought possible. Your father is with you and guiding you to a new and brighter future. Hey come on please follow me I'm the Pied Piper and I'll show you the way to go!

Thirty-Eight:Listen to the Wisdom of The World In The Time of The Coronavirus


     Listen to the voices in the Wilderness calling us into to Eternity. Do not settle for the insignificant false promises of the political present that is sewing seeds of discontent and disharmony. Listen for the sound of truth and follow the truth!

Thirty-Seven: Aspire For A United America: In The Time Of Coronavirus

 Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy
O Divine Master, grant that I may
Not so much seek to be consoled as to console
To be understood, as to understand
To be loved, as to love
For it is in giving that we receive
And it's in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it's in dying that we are born to Eternal Life

     Truer words have never been spoken by a loving mortal man. We need more light and love in our world. The darkness these days is all pervading and overwhelming. Do not be fooled by false narratives. They abound in the world today and are designed to polarize your thinking. The narrative of divide and conquer is alive and well. The more we become separated as a nation the more vulnerable as a society. We have come to far as a nation to allow ourselves to be divided in ideology. We are all Americans First and foremost for America. Do not be torn apart. Have patience with those that disagree with your political thinking or mindset. Now is the time that we are at our most vulnerable and can easily be misled by false information from foreign hackers. They are out to create chaos among us. Believe me when I tell you I find it almost impossible to understand anyone who aligns themselves with our current administration. However the thought that we are purposely being manipulated in our hatred and anger over politics does not escape me. I will acquiesce my position to understand my fellow American before I will allow us to be torn apart as a society.
     Sow the seeds of Harmony, Faith, Love and Compassion Today! Take a step back from your opinion and understand your countryman or you had better learn to speak Russian of Chinese. This is no joke. We have the ability to reset the narrative after we come out of Covid. How do you want your future and your children's children's future to look. Take the time to reach out as a Nation and to be one!

Thirty Six: Are You Freaking Out: In The Time Of Coronavirus

 Forget The Past.

Reflection on negative things is not the purpose of man's God-- given memory.
Avoid dwelling on all the wrong things you have done. They do not belong to you now. Let them be forgotten. It is attention that creates habit and memory. As soon as you put the needle on a phonograph record,it begins to play. Attention is the needle that plays the record of past actions. So you should not put your attention on bad ones. Why go on suffering over the unwise actions of your past ? Cast their memory from your mind,and take care not to repeat those actions again.
Reflection on negative things is not the purpose of man's God- given memory. Some people go on remembering all the suffering they passed through, and how terrible the pain was, from an operation that took place twenty years ago ! Over and over again they relive the consciousness of that sickness. Why repeat such experience ? To deliberately recall painful and evil experience is a misuse of memory and a sin against your soul.
Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda.
The Divine Romance. P.156

The Paradigm has shifted during the Coronavirus. Nothing is as it was before. It is time to stop being a follower and step up and become the leader that you know you are. Where have your Leaders taken you. Down the path of death and destruction. You need to become the Captain of your own destiny. Do not be afraid to step out and follow your own lead. The truth is your ideas are probably better than those of your current self serving leaders. It is what it is. The truth is right in front of us, do not deny it or hide from it. If we work together to advance common goals we can not only survive but we can thrive. Don't be afraid. Stop freaking out and take control!

Do not go gentle into that good night 
Dylan Thomas
 Do not go gentle into that good night,
 Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. 
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
 Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night.
 Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright 
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
 Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, 
Do not go gentle into that good night.
 Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. And you, my father, there on the sad height, Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray. Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Thirty-Five: Returning to the Good Times, In The Time Of Coronavirus

 "Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men and weak men create hard times"

G. Michael Hopf

It is easy in the time of plenty and abundance to loose sight of the struggles that you have overcome to get to your pinnacle. Your pinnacle can be taken away at any time. Providence rears it ugly head and removes the things that are dear to you. We must not despair in these times. These times are trying beyond all belief! Do not forget the times we have come through. It is the cause of your electorate that you are suffering through these times. These times were avoidable. They did not have to take place. They are an aberration perpetrated on you by a deviant democracy of bureaucratic incompetence. This is not the way things are supposed to be. We must speak up louder, stronger with great fortitude to overcome the oppression of the class struggle. Every opportunity should be seized upon to bring about change from this moment forward. This should be the goal that we work towards as a society. We do not have to accept the status quo. Be the change in every day that you are looking for.

Thirty-Four: Moving Out Of Darkness In The Time Of Coronavirus

"The best way to remove your weaknesses is not to think about them; otherwise you will be overwhelmed. Bring the light in and you will feel that darkness never was. In that thought is one of the greatest inspirations in my life. If light is admitted into a cave where darkness has existed for thousands of years, darkness will vanish instantly. So will our faults and weaknesses vanish when we bring in the light of God. The darkness of ignorance can enter nevermore."

-Paramhansa Yogananda 

     In a world that seems to be filled with darkness, we must remove the vail of Maya and shine the light of the world on us. We do not need to live and cower like scared creatures from the bullies of the world. Do not accept the litany of lies that are pervading our ether. We are children of the light, as a child of the light I am willed to stand up speak out and be accountable for my brothers and sisters who are unable. We no longer live in the age of darkness. We live in an age of information and truth. It may be hard to understand the difference between the two but we must use all of faculties to do this. Stay aware, Stay safe, Stay Positive. We will again be able to walk free in the world. This is still America we live in we will prevail!

Thirty-Three: Channeling Ernest Hemingway In The Time Of Coranavirus

“In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, and seeing what you have to see, you'll dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it bent and dull and know I had to put it to the grindstone again and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining and nothing to say, or smooth and well-oiled in the closet, but unused.

Ernest Hemingway

    Live your Life to the fullest. Hemingway would punch it in the nose. He was a battler a hard driving, hard drinking, hard living, deep loving, deeply driven soul. You would do well to channel his spirit in these times. Confront the things that you fear, with all his success Hemingway was said to be afraid of success. Are you your own worst enemy? Are you engaged in your negative self talk? Are you listening to the wrong you? The you that is in your home and living in fear. Step out of your comfort zones. My moments of greatest personal triumphs have been the times that caution has been thrown to the wind. Let your self soar! Do what it is you have always wanted to do! Not even Covid- 19 can stop you! Be safe take care of yourself, but plan for your finest hour. It is already in the ether!

Thirty-Two: Using the Art of Unlimited Power to Win In The Time of Coronavirus

      “No matter what your trials have been, or how discouraged you are, if you will make a continued effort to be better, you will find that, being made in the image of God, you are endowed with an unlimited power that is much stronger than your worst trials. Make up your mind that you will win, focusing all your concentration on ceaseless efforts to succeed, and you will surely be victorious.

Remember that your past difficulties did not come to crush you, but to strengthen your determination to use your limitless divine powers to succeed. God wants you to conquer the difficult tests of life and to come back to His home of wisdom."

Excerpted from “How to Have Courage, Calmness, and Confidence" by ParamahansaYogananda published by Crystal Clarity

We have it within ourselves to overcome any obstacle in our path by our will power alone if you believe that you are one with your father. You must remind yourself that you and your father are one and all things that your father hath is yours. Whatever your need is, move forward in your life, as if you already have it. The power of positive thinking is real. You must decide that you can achieve the goals you have set for yourself and you can. Nothing is accomplished with negativity. It is a detractor from success. Success comes when opportunity is met with preparation.

Thirty-One: How to Build A New Life, Career, and World During The Time Of Coronavirus


Great Lives are not Built in One day.
But in Many Great days.
One can't achieve Great results without Consistency, Resolve and Dedication.🌻
You will have bridges and twisted roads to Cross,where you are still unsure.
Here Faith is the Light.And Guru is the Guide.🌻
Trust your Inner voice.You won't Falter.
Trust your Path.And Keep moving Forward.
Inches of progress Matters,only if you are clear of the Inner Direction.🌻
May Gurudevs Grace Guide you towards your Truest Destiny.OmBabajiMatajiOm🙏🏻

Move forward today. Don't let the paralysis of uncertainty or fear get in your way. You can and you must accomplish the things that are truly blocking your success. Often we become our own enemies in the drive to exist, our attitudes, our friendships, our discouragement fraternities, our circumstances may not allow us to soar. Be like the Phoenix Rising From the Ashes! If you do not try you will never know the innate power within your self to conquer you greatest challenges!

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”

lCharles R. Swindoll

Thirty: Exercising Positive Mindfulness In The Time Of Coronavirus


     "It is pride that makes self-righteous persons so ready to judge those about them who are weak. True morality includes compassion for others in their ignorant wrongdoings.
Those who like to dwell on the faults of others are human vultures. There is already too much evil in the world. Don't talk of evil, don't think of evil, and don't do evil. Be like a rose, wafting to all the sweet fragrance of soul goodness. Make everyone feel that you are a friend; that you are a helper, not a destroyer. If you want to be good, analyze yourself and develop the virtues in you. Banish the thought that evil has any part in your nature, and it will drop off. Make everyone else feel that you are an image of God, not by your words but by your behavior. Emphasize the light, and darkness will be no more."

--  "Man's Eternal Quest".....pag - 77 , 79  -- 

     Self-Righteousness is rampant in America today. Each group has their own narrative and there is no longer a middle or common ground. Do not allow your mindset to be hijacked. Have your belief system but be willing to compromise. The old adage, It is going to take a lot of Love to change the way things are, is the singularly greatest truth in the world today. Stop! Reset the narrative to a discourse of harmony. Live harmoniously in your daily life, strive for positive reinforcement of your own morals and maintain the moral high ground in all your dealings in life. It serves absolutely no purpose to have your thoughts corrupted by and outside force. Now more than ever you must guard your psychic aurora from outside influences that the negativity of the Pandemic is raining down upon us. You must with every fiber of your soul move forward in your life with joy, happiness, and positivity. What good does fear and anxiousness accomplish.

     Pride cometh before the fall! How many prideful bullies do you have to see rise and fall in flames before you understand that aspiring to be good, well rounded and a good citizen to your country, is the goal for the majority. It may seem in the times today that your country has betrayed you. Ask the greatest generation if during the depths of despair in their darkest hours if they felt betrayed. Perhaps, but their sense of duty and right drove them on. We can overcome our hardships. Even if you don't believe that our greatest threat has been eliminated from our most powerful office you must reach out and help your fellow human being and they you. Sense of non community and polarized politics rein supreme. Do we not still live in the freest and greatest country in the world. Remember that! Your situation will change, situations always do. Every day well lived is a day closer to achieving your goal. Believe your job or change in career will come through. Believe that we will persevere as a society and overcome whatever obstacles covid or politics or environment puts before us. Be very careful America you don't want me to have to come to your cities and steal your children to get your attention. Move forward to a brighter future today!

Twenty Nine: The Art of Being Fearless In The Time Of Coronavirus

"Be fearless. Whatever it is that you fear, take your mind away from it and leave it to Me. Have faith in Me and you will be free at once."
--- Mahavatar Sri Babaji Maharaj
"Be fearless, Gurus are always protecting you."

--- Beloved Gurudev Premavatar Sri Swarupananda Brahmachari 

     How to overcome fear. Fear is a paralyzing force. It is a palpable entity that once entering the mind like the Coronavirus itself can be pervasive. Immediately displace the thought of fear with whatever method is at your disposal.

Twenty Eight: Awaken Thoughts Of Immortality In The Time of Coronavirus

 How to Use Thoughts of Immortality to Awaken Your True Self", Wisdom of Paramahansa Yogananda

Constantly Impress the Mind With Divine Truth
Avoid any suggestion to the mind of human limitation: sickness, old age, death. Instead, constantly impress the mind with this truth:
“I am the Infinite that has become the body. The body as a manifestation of Spirit is the ever-perfect, ever-youthful Spirit.”

Refuse to be limited by thoughts of weakness or age. Who told you that you are old? You are not old. You, the soul, are eternally young. Impress that thought on your consciousness:
“I am the soul, a reflection of ever-youthful Spirit. I am vibrant with youth, with ambition, with power to succeed.”

Attune yourself to Cosmic Power, and whether you are working in a factory, or mixing with people in the business world, always affirm:
“Within me is the Infinite Creative Power. I shall not go to the grave without some accomplishments. I am a God-man, a rational creature. I am the power of Spirit, the dynamic Source of my soul. I shall create revelations in the world of business, in the world of thought, in the world of wisdom. I and my Father are One. I can create anything I desire, even as my creative Father.”

    Let Today be the day that you turn your negative thinking pattern to a positive one. It is possible to overcome any trial and tribulation in your life. Do not be afraid to perform any task that was previously left unfinished. Pick up that short story, poem, work of art, song, love letter and complete your calling. We all have destinies that are left unfulfilled now is the time to start fresh. Be brave, be reckless with caution and accept your success. The saddest thing in life is to have never tried. How many dreams are left hidden in the dark of the closet dull and unpolished? Bring them out into the light of the world and let your spirit shine and soar. You are not alone. We are all in this together. Be supportive of your friends, family and neighbors, as long as it is at a distance.
     There are many guiding lights in the world today choose a positive influencer and follow the path that has been chosen for you.

Twenty Seven: Seeking Positivity and the Light In the Time of Coronavirus

 "The last portion of life is more important than the first, because what you are at the end of this life is what you will be at the beginning of the next."

- Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda 
(Man's Eternal Quest)

     Strive to be the best that you can be. It isn't always easy being your best in the face of adversity. Adversity makes the man or woman. To accomplish great deeds in this world, one must first aspire to accomplish them. Never has a person of achievement accepted the mundane of life. It is difficult in the Time of Coronavirus to see beyond the fray that is our world today. There is the beginnings of a great shift in the light of the world. It may not seem to you that there is the light at the end of the tunnel. It is there and it is getting brighter. Find small ways to improve your mental acuity. Find ways to find ways to just live. However small your accomplishment today is celebrate Today. Tomorrow is just that, it is in your plus column not in your debit. How can I be my very best today. What is it that I can do to move forward. If your sending out resumes and finding nothing but rejection find it in your positive soul to send out more. Amidst a sea of no's it will only take one yes. These are desperate and extremely trying times. You do not need to be reminded of the sorrow and suffering surrounding you. It is evident and pervasive. Know that there are leaders and people out there doing all that they can to change the narrative. It is always the darkest in the tunnel just before you see the light at the end of it. Stay strong and stay positive there is a caring world and population that wants to see you get through this.

I am submerged in eternal light. It permeates every particle of my being. I am living in that light. The Divine Spirit fills me within and without.

~Paramahansa Yogananda

Twenty Six: Developing Spiritual Magnetism in the Time of Coronavirus

 Yogananda's Healing Techniques

Cultivate within yourself spiritual magnetism like that of Krishna and great Masters. In order to do this, you must express selfless love for all. Try always to be helpful. Develop your usefulness to your family, to your community and friends. Be willing wherever you are. That makes you a magnetic person. If you love people without any motive then you can have divine magnetism.

Keep this unselfish love, compassion, pity for others, grow it in your heart and thus let's pray for healing.   Paramahansa Yogannada

     Don't become closed off to life. Life can overwhelm you and make you withdraw and harden your heart. It isn't easy to soften your heart and to be open and loving in your life. Don't be afraid to express your feelings. This world is too full of automatons mindlessly performing life by rote. Stop! Open your mind and your heart. Adopt and attitude to help your fellow man. We are all one in the community and should not feel isolated. Be reasonable in your service to others not all of humanity is kind. Kindness has disappeared in the world today. We could almost be classified as Human Unkind.
     Learn to meditate, if you are quarantined then you have time to learn.

Twenty Five: Courage in the Time of Coronavirus


I know now that I am a lion of cosmic power. Bleating no more, I shake the error forest with reverberations of Thine almighty voice. In divine freedom I bound through the jungle of earthly delusions, devouring the little creatures of vexing worries and timidities, and the wild hyenas of disbelief.

O Lion of Liberation, ever send through me Thy roar of all-conquering courage.

~ Sri Paramahansa Yogananda,
Whispers from Eternity

Now is the time for all men to step forward and be accountable. We can no longer be quiet sheep led to slaughter by the powers that govern our nation. Hundreds of thousands of us have perished in horribly ugly deaths when it does not have to be this way. It is time for all to speak our minds and to save our fellow citizens by following the CDC Guidelines of Social Distancing and Mask Wearing. We can no longer continue to be silent and to die. Courage is the strength to stand up and to be accountable no matter what the circumstances.

Twenty-Four: Exercising Effort in the Time of Coronavirus

You should increase the strength of your body and then increase the strength of your mind. The best way to increase mental power is to try to accomplish something worthwhile every day. Choose some worthy task or project that you have been told you could not do, and try to do it. Each day strive to accomplish something that you have always thought you could not accomplish.
~ Sri Paramahansa Yogananda,

Effort, supreme effort is the precursor to accomplishing great feats. Nothing in life comes without sacrifice. The sacrifice of time, energy, effort, their is no substitute for the old adage of just try. If you do not attempt to scale the heights, than the mountain top is never attainable. It can't be conquered. The premise In the Mountains Nature draws a razor thin edge of existence you either accept the challenge and conquer it or it will forever conquer you. Men for ages have accepted and attempted the challenge. Whatever your challenge is you must conquer it. Today walking out into the world is a challenge. Putting food on the table, paying your rent or your bills. The act of eating and surviving is an absolute challenge. Conquer them. You are a divine creature of your father. You must remember that I and my father are one and all things my father hath are mine. Inherently you were meant to succeed. Success is a natural state and attainable to all who desire it. You all ready have it. Your birth assured you of it. You are a child of abundance and joy. Recognize the reality and conquer the fear that is holding you back.

Twenty Three; Explore Natural Wonders

    " Drink water from the spring where horses drink. The horse will never drink bad water.  Lay your bed where the cat sleeps. Eat the fruit that has been touched by a worm.  Boldly pick the mushroom on which the insects sit.  Plant the tree where the mole digs.  Build your house where the snake sits to warm itself.  Dig your fountain where the birds hide from heat. Go to sleep and wake up at the same time with the birds – you will reap all of the days golden grains.  Eat more green – you will have strong legs and a resistant heart, like the beings of the forest.  Swim often and you will feel on earth like the fish in the water.  Look at the sky as often as possible and your thoughts will become light and clear.  Be quiet a lot, speak little – and silence will come in your heart, and your spirit will be calm and full of peace.”

 Saint Seraphim of Sarov

Nature is talking to you, are you listening?

     Find solace in nature. In time of Coronavirus explore your nature trails in your state. Local Parks and State parks are open In Nevada. Check your local State Parks, now is a good time to find the beauty of your local surroundings. Explore your Natural Wonders, America is full of beauty.

Twenty Two: Learn to Accept Your Divine Transformation

     I beheld a great blue valley encircled by mountains that shimmered jewel-like. Around opalescent peaks vagrant mists sparkled. A river of silence flowed by, diamonds bright.
     And there I saw, coming out of the depths of the mountains, Jesus and Krishna walking hand in hand- the Christ who prayed by the river Jordan and the Chirst-na who played a flute by the river Yuma.
     They baptized me in the radiant waters; my soul melted in the fathomless depths.
     Everything began to emit astral flames. My body and the forms of Christ and Krishna, the iridescent hills, the glowing stream, and the far empyrean became dancing lights, while atoms of fire flew. Finally nothing remained but mellow luminosity, in which creation trembled.
     O Spirit! in my heart I bowed again and again to thee- Eternal Light in whom all forms commingle.
                                                                                 Whispers From Eternity
                                                                               Paramahansa Yogananda

     To obtain the unobtainable must be the quest. What would be the answer if you could obtain that which you yearned for. If it is noble and good then why not you, a child of the divine, not be able to grasp the prize. If you see yourself succeeding and reaching your goal, then you shall. The times in life that you do not succeed are the ones that you, yourself sabotage, by not envisioning your success. The answer lies in the ability to believe in yourself and your abilities. No matter what your situation or circumstances are now, you can overcome them. By proper thought and right action you can be the person you wish to be or accomplish the goal you wish! Persevere! Believe! You Can!

Twenty-One; The Art Of Grieving

"Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form."

     Grief, the silencer of hope. Grief crashes into life and disrupts plans, dreams, and accomplishments. Grief can be self actuated, grief can be random. It often comes at the pinnacle of success. The Yin-Yang of life. Balance at its essence, balance that keeps everything even. Positivity is not greater than negativity. All well to know that even your grief is part of your living. When life brings grief and sadness into your being it is difficult to embrace the feeling and work through it. If you believe in balance in life you then must believe that your loss or whom or what you are grieving for will eventually make its way back into your ether. It appears to be a fatalistic view at first glance but looked at in a deeper thought you will see that not only is grief and loss a motivator. It is also an equalizer. Life lived at higher vibration or level cannot always be maintained. Life should be lived on an even keel. Meditation along with energization exercises will help keep you in a balanced form. It will help you to make your way beyond loss and grief.

Twenty: Accepting Self-Realization

"To admit karma means to accept yourself as a mortal being. Do not admit you are a helpless mortal governed by karma. Affirm: "I am a child of God. I am His." That is the truth. Why shouldn't you proclaim the truth? As soon as you realize this truth, your status is changed. But when you admit you are a mortal, you bind yourself with the chains of the mortal being. You are the sons of God; you are gods. How could karma influence you? Refuse to be bound by karma; it is an old superstition of the ignofant to believe you cannot change your destiny.
Never say you are a sinner. How can you be a sinner? God is your Father. If He created this world with its potential for many evil ways, you would have to say that He too must be a sinner. That is the way I talk to God. It never hurts to speak truth to Him. If God can be away from the evil of His creation, so can we. As He is free, we can be free. Never again identify yourself with evil. You may have made a mistake, but it doesn't belong to you if you give it up. Destroy your karma by wisdom. Live in the consciousness of Spirit. "
-- Paramahansa Yogananda --

     Never stop believing in your ability to change your circumstances. If you think you are defeated you are. You can conquer your immediate situation by believing in your ability to do so. Once being silent was the norm, now in the time of Coronavirus you have to assert all the positivity you can summon. The quote of The more you use what God has given you, the more he or she will give to you. Now is the time of dreaming great dreams and moving forward with your goals. Do not allow the times to stop you. It is up to you and the Masters to accomplish this. Stay strong, write or speak of your desires and goals and move toward their completion.

Nineteen: Journey to Self-Realization


          The man of sacred selfishness counts all his consequent earthly losses as sacrifices deliberately and willingly brought about by himself for others' good, and for his own great and ultimate gain. He lives to love his brethren, for he knows they are all children of the one God. His entire selfishness is sacred, for whenever he thinks of himself, he thinks not of the small body and mind of ordinary understanding, but of the needs of all bodies and minds within the range of his acquaintance or influence. His "self" becomes the Self of all. He becomes the mind and feeling of all creatures. So when he does anything for himself, he can only do that which is good for all. He who considers himself as one whose body and limbs consist of all humanity and all creatures certainly finds the Universal All-Pervading Spirit as himself. 

       "He sees truly who perceives the Supreme Lord present equally in all creatures, the Imperishable amidst the perishing....When a man beholds all separate beings as existent in the One that has expanded Itself into the many, he then merges with Brahma" (Bhagavad Gita XII:27, 30).

~ Sri Paramahansa Yogananda,
Journey to Self-Realization

     There is only the Journey to Self-Realization that should concern you. All other efforts are futile in life. The quest for wealth, material possessions or fame is really irrelevant. All these things become secondary once your desire for self-realization becomes activated. Follow in the Masters footsteps seeking enlightenment and awareness. It is a worthwhile journey of spirit, mind and soul.

Eighteen: Align your will with God's Will for Success

     When you makeup your mind to do good things, you will accomplish them if you use dynamic will power to follow through. No matter what the circumstances are, if you go on trying, God will create the means by which your will shall find its proper reward.
                                                                  In the Sanctuary of the Soul, Paramahansa Yogananda

     The key for the use of will is to align your will with God's will. Every time in life that my personal will was asserted the result seemed to turn out unpleasant. My will was flawed. It was not in tune with God's will for me. It is easier with the use of hindsight to understand where the insertion of my will cause a flaw in the design of my life. To be attuned to the will of God through meditation, healing affirmations and right thinking is far better than floundering around blind in life. There is no way that without the realization of divine guidance in your life that you can move forward.

Seventeen: In Times Of Political Turmoil

     "When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - When you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming self-sacrifice - You may know that your society is doomed."
                                                                                               Ayn Rand
                                                                                               Atlas Shrugged 1957

     Normally we do not have political posts, but recently in cleaning out my notes on my I - phone this quote popped up. It was something that struck my senses very deeply. It is hard to make your way through the fear of Coronavirus, dying, suffering untold agony, isolationism to the extreme and the outright lying and deceit that is cable news media these days. We have never been the type to bury our heads in the sand. To not recognize the truth and post it would be beyond any reason that we would ever have for writing. While there are no other answers than to see it and to say it, we all must find the truth to believe in and hold steadfast to it. When we were young we protested, we believed in what we were doing so much we fought in the streets. When we see the people in the streets now, we can't help but to understand their frustration. We believed these things were addressed and yes even taken care of. Enter our President and Disrupter in Chief and in a few short years, chaos reins supreme, with the above quote being the truest words that have been spoken in years.
     Get out and vote, protest, become an activist but do not go quietly into the night. What ever you believe, you had better believe with your entire heart and soul, because you are being sold a bill of bad goods by those that are elected to serve you. They are serving themselves to whatever you and your children thought you had in the way of a society and a country. You need to speak your mind and your peace, you need to do it loudly and with great conviction. Change takes place with you, me, and the next American. Be the change you want to see in the world. If you sing, sing, if your write, write better, if you paint, paint your masterpiece!

Sixteen: The More You Use What God Has Given You, The More God Will Give You

     Finding your way through the page can often be daunting and seem difficult. The thought sometimes is can we fill the page, will it be anything of interest to anyone else but us. Do not fear the more you use what God has given you, the more God will give you. Years earlier working out to train for a ski vacation in Utah a friend who was also a handball partner would train on these wonderful pneumatic machines with me. The saying was on a very difficult abdominal machine that we would do crunches on to build our core for back country hiking and out of bounds skiing. The saying stuck in my mind. Especially after we were standing on an incredibly steep out of bounds chute with two feet of fresh powder. We would look down the untouched slope and then at one another and say The more your use what God has given you, the more God will give you, and then we would jump into the chute and have the ski run of a lifetime to remember always.

     Use the gifts that you were given, they were not given to be kept silent and quite in your hidden places. Shout your special talents from the rooftops, cliff tops, until they echo down the mountain sides. Proclaim your individuality and the deep beliefs about life, love, and happiness. Lately the words seem to flow. Ever since that the Mountain Pearls that once took up all my energy and time were put away and shelved, my mind is clear and free. The thing that has become apparent is that the enjoyment that comes from being supportive is far greater than any ski run or mountain that has ever been conquered. Through positive self thinking and wonderful meditation time, the joy of writing is rolling off the keys like giant soft snowflakes and accumulating into a wave of fresh powder down. We hope that you find your joy in life and make your way through the Coronavirus with conviction, strength, fortitude, and self awareness of your health.

Fifteen: Many Rivers to Cross

     Seeing the future through the trees is a very difficult proposition right now. One could very easily be discouraged or absolutely paralyzed with fear. If you have half of a mind in the world today, you could certainly be distraught. Every thing changes, times will change and we will get past the pandemic. We are absolutely avoiding political posting. There are way too many crazies in the world today. The other side truly believes in its views.

     The thing that we hold deep in our heart these days is that more change has been wrought by a quill, pen, typewriter and paper then any sword, gun, artillery, jet or bomb. We cling dearly to the premise that change will come and that we hope to be a spearhead in the wave. Never before in our existence have we been more confident in the fact that now is the time to move forward and to pursue publishing. One should assess their place, their orientation to their life and to move forward in the way that is best suited for them. Gone is the anger, fear and lack of self confidence. It is now replaced with certainty and absolute belief in the abilities of moving forward. It is as if the awakening has happened and the desire and motivation to move forward and pursue what has been dormant for all these years. The statement about someone spontaneously catching on fire and accomplishing things that normally they would not have attempted has attracted my attention and that the need to pursue the things that would never have been of interest in my world. The world to us has opened the door and asked that we step into it. For what it is worth, never before do we think we have been ready willing and able to move forward on the journey. Time truly is the great healer of wounds and the desire to heal and to cross the rivers of doubt have never seemed so conquerable.

     May all your thoughts be of great accomplishments!
