THIS WEEKS AFFIRMATION;
“I am submerged in the Eternal Light,
it permeates every particle of my being.
I live in that Light.
The Divine 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.
