Yogananda - Live in the moment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your success in life does not altogether depend upon natural ability; it also depends upon determination to grasp the opportunity that is presented to you.  Opportunities in life come by creation, not by chance.  They are either created now, or were created at some time in the recent past, or the distant past, by yourself.

Since you have earned them, use them to the best advantage.  You can make your life much more worthwhile now and in the future if you focus your attention upon your immediate needs and then use all available information, as well as your abilities, to fulfill them.  You must develop all the powers that God gave you, the unlimited powers that come from innermost forces of your being.”
Paramahansa Yogananda

From The I Ching or Book of Changes
by Brian Browne Walker:

“A healthy family, a healthy country, a healthy world – all grow from a single superior person.  This is the proper foundation of human communities.  All clans must have a superior person at the center if they are to prosper and succeed.  Therefore, in order to improve our family, company, nation or world community, we must begin by improving ourselves.

If you will observe healthy families you will always see present in them three qualities: love, faithfulness and correctness.  When we truly love others, we are naturally kind, gentle and patient with them.  When we are faithful to others, we place proper principles and conduct above temporary influences like anger, desire or greed.  And when we practice correctness, we spiritually nourish ourselves and all those around us.  When all three qualities are cultivated, a healthy clan springs naturally into being.

The difference between paying lip service to these ideals and practicing them is profound.  If you advocate high ideals and actions to others but do not embody them yourself, your influence will disintegrate for lack of a proper foundation.  Therefore, you must first instill them in yourself.

Concentrate not upon influencing others or external events but upon strengthening your inner devotion to proper principles.  When modesty, acceptance, equanimity and gentleness become deeply ingrained in your character, they will flow steadily outward from you.  Soon you will find yourself enmeshed in a web of healthy relationships, and in this there is great good fortune.”

Our world is facing its greatest challenge.  The serious problems in our environment, health, economies, governments and families stem from our individual and collective behavior.  The way to improve the world is to improve ourselves.  By each of us becoming the best we can be, the better we can help one another.

Being healthy starts with what we feed our body and mind.  We are blessed with a miraculous, self-healing physical body.  We are responsible for everything we put inside our body and mind.  Proper nutrition, exercise, awareness and quality time in nature can cause amazing things. 

Remember to feed your heart and mind with peace and truth.
Give yourself the health and vitality you deserve.

Help-others

 

It is in giving we truly receive and open our hearts.

A good way to transform a negative or challenging situation is by giving and forgiving.

We are spiritual beings in human form and we all make mistakes.

One of our lessons here is to learn to forgive ourselves and others.  It is part of the human condition and experience on earth.

Forgiveness leads to compassion

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.”
Emerson

From The Game of Life and How to Play It
by Florence Scovel Shinn:

“The imagination has been called, “The Scissors of The Mind,” and it is ever cutting, cutting, day by day, the pictures man sees there, and sooner or later he meets his own creations in his outer world.  To train the imagination successfully, man must understand the workings of the mind.  The Greeks said, “Know Thyself.”

 There are three departments of the mind, the subconscious, conscious and superconscious.

The subconscious, is simple power, without direction.  It is like steam or electricity, and it does what it is directed to do; it has no power of induction.  Whatever man feels deeply or images clearly, is impressed upon the subconscious mind, and carried out in minutest detail.

The conscious mind has been called the mortal or carnal mind. It is the human mind and sees life as it appears to be.  It sees death, sickness, poverty and limitation of every kind, and it impresses the subconscious.

The superconscious mind is the God Mind within each man, and is the realm of perfect ideas.  In it, is the “perfect pattern” spoken of by Plato, The Divine Design; for there is a Divine Design for each person.

“There is a place you are to fill and no one else can fill, something you are to do, which no one else can do.”

There is a perfect picture of this in the superconscious mind.  It usually flashes across the conscious as an unattainable ideal – “something too good to be true.”  In reality it is man’s true destiny flashed to him from the Infinite Intelligence which is within himself.

Many people, however, are in ignorance of their true destinies and are striving for things and situations which do not belong to them, and would only bring failure and dissatisfaction if attained.

Jesus Christ said, “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you,” and he said the Kingdom was within man.
The Kingdom is the realm of right ideas, or the divine pattern.”

“Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you.” (Mat.7:7)
