THIS WEEKS AFFIRMATION;

“I am submerged in the Eternal Light,
it permeates every particle of my being.
I live in that Light.
The Holy Spirit fills me within and without.”

Changing human behavior depends upon changing ones consciousness, which can be greatly effected by spiritual chanting with or without music. The mental repetition of and idea with feeling and concentration can aid in reshaping the world you live in both the inner and the outer world. Time and effort win the day!

The Master said; “A master bestows the divine experience of cosmic consciousness when his disciple, by meditation, has strengthened his mind to a degree where the vast vistas would not overwhelm him. The experience can never be given through one’s mere intellectual willingness or open- mindedness. Only adequate enlargement of consciousness by yoga practice and devotional bhakti can prepare the mind to absorb the liberating shock of omnipresence. It comes with a natural inevitability to the sincere devotee. His intense craving begins to pull at God with an irresistible force. “

Note; From then on, the disciple no longer depends upon the master and repeats this experience at his own leisure.
In the Guru -disciple relationship, the guru shows the devotee from the beginning how to achieve true freedom in every way.
Obedience to the Guru is never a “blind”experience. It is both scientific and clear in both reason and feelings.

Wisdom of Paramahansa Yogananda

Wisdom in the Olive!

Paramahansa Yogananda said;
“Once a man gave some olives to another who had never seen olives, and said,
“These have a lot of oil in them. “This person cut open the fruit but could see no oil .
Then his friend showed him how to squeeze the olives in order to extract the oil from the pulp.
So it is with God. Everything in the universe is saturated with His presence – the twinkling of the stars,
the rose, the song of the bird, our minds. His being[reality] permeates everything, everywhere.
But one has to metaphorically “squeeze” God out of His material concealment.
by Paramahansa Yogananda, page 54, from “the Yoga of Jesus,” SRF Publishers, LA USA.

Comment by PYilsove;;;;;;
This is just how tricky the mind is to us. We naturally imagine that to see what is in something you can just open it up.
Yet with microscopic substances or invisible energies this does not work so easily. We must now use other approaches, tools, and techniques.
This is where the one sided intellectual and the one sided emotional persons often fail. Patience and persistence are also needed at times.
These alone are not only unbalanced in approaches but they lack the proper tools and/or methodology and skills and openness of mind to reach accurate conclusions. That is because the ego keeps repeating that we already know what we don’t know.
In this case one had to squeeze and compress instead of dissecting and opening up to reveal the contents.
Here’s where the science of Yoga Meditation comes in –
it perfects and intensifies our powers of concentration while steadying the mind
to see a clearer image of anything we wish to understand. It gives us a balalnced view of our subject.
It also removes all that trauma we call sin. It takes us on an inward journey to reality and away from
the dream world of material relativity. We become sane and whole, and one with Reality/God consciousness/

Otherwise houses just get built on sand – a foundation that will eventually crumble.
Oh! Everything looks great Now!
Just wait till you learn more, especially about yourself……
