Beholding the One in All, by Paramahansa Yogananda 1949
“He is the cleverest, who finds God,
He is the cleverest, who gives the time to find God,
He is the cleverest, who finds that supreme happiness within,
You can stand unshaken amidst the crash of breaking worlds,
He’s whose peace, the riches of peace, cannot be taken away by all the robbers of circumstances and trials.
I see the whole world as movies. It was the light that had created the villain and the light had created the hero. The villain is created so that you don’t become the villain, and that you love the hero. If you become the villain your throat has to be cut. Do not become the villain or evil. Taste the Honey of Goodness. And now you see that there is no villain, no hero. They are both pictures of my light beam.
After getting away from the villain and evil or tasting poison honey, taste the Honey of Goodness and then come into the beam of light. And you will realize that all this world, which you see as terrible wars and trouble is nothing but a picture show, a cosmic motion picture show in the sky.
You cannot be violated or harmed by stones, not bombs, not machine guns, not Atomic bombs, remember the best shelter is in the silence of your soul. If you can develop that silence, nothing in the world can touch you – nothing in the world. And you can say, having which, no other gain becomes greater.
Then you can stand unshaken amidst the crash of breaking worlds. Then you are not in any way touched by cold and heat, pleasure and pain. As soon as you are touched by these you are in the movie. God is everywhere.
Everything is happening in our thoughts. That Great Power of God is present in every thought. If you realize this, you will realize the Infiniteness of God and the Kindness of God and the Love of God. He has one thing in mind, he has thrown out from his beam – the villain and the good and he wants to bring them back and make them one with the beam.
Thank you for all you kindness with the Love of God, I love you all. Give it to him. Whatever you do, give your light to him and you will find him all the time with you. He who watcheth me always I watch him always, to the flowers and stars and human beings. He never loses sight of me nor I lose sight of him.”
Paramahansa Yogananda came to the US in the 1920’s to share meditation and Kriya Yoga. His book, Autobiography of a Yogi, is one of the most read spiritual books around the world. Yogananda shared his love of God and was one of the highest masters to walk the earth over the last 100 years. Roy Eugene Davis is one of the remaining direct disciples of Yogananda. The teachings and truth they share can bring you close to God and to discover a peace and joy that passeth all understanding.
