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

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.
