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.
