Have a Magnificent Day!

Have a Magnificent Day!

A Source of Peace and Joy

posted by The MEGA Coach

Today marks the anniversary of Yogananda’s mahasamadhi.

On March 7, 1952, the great guru, Paramahansa Yogananda entered mahasamadhi, a God-illumined master’s conscious exit from the body at the time of physical death.  

His passing was marked by an extraordinary phenomenon.  A notarized statement signed by the Director of Forest Lawn Memorial -Park testified: “No physical disintegration was visible in his body even twenty days after death….This state of perfect preservation of a body is, so far as we know from mortuary annals, an unparalleled one….Yogananda’s body was apparently in a phenomenal state of immutability.”

Yogananda’s life and teachings are still a vital and thriving source of light, love and truth.  His books and CD’s are so inspirational and in alignment with the proper principles of life.  “Autobiography of a Yogi,” is one of the most read spiritual books and guides ever written.  It opens a doorway to higher consciousness.

“Change your thoughts if you wish to change your circumstances.  Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts, only you can change them.  You will want to change them when you realize that each thought creates according to its own nature.  Remember that the law works at all times and that you are always demonstrating according to the kind of thoughts you habitually entertain. 


Therefore, start now to think only those thoughts that will bring you health and happiness.


Thinking, reading and repeating statements of truth with a deep attention will help to clear away negation and to establish a positive attitude in your mind.  Repeat your prayers and affirmations with deep concentration until you establish a habit of thought, until it becomes as natural for you to think in the right way as it previously was for you to think negatively.

 

                             Paramahansa Yogananda

 

“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.”

 

      “Beholding the One in All” by Paramahansa Yogananda  1949

 

May you find the light of God within and share it with the world.

Keep Looking Up!

posted by The MEGA Coach


I was speaking with a my Stepfather, Henry as his 94 year old sister passed away.
I was calling to give to him some comfort and to let him know I care.

Henry is an amazing person.  Even in his grief he shared something special with me.
He said, Sometimes God puts you on your back so you can look up.”

When you reflect on this idea it is quite profound.
Our toughest times guide us to look up, open up and learn the lesson we need to grow.

Challenging situations or even shocking events that happen move us to change our position,
point of view, perception or even our behavior.

It is in allowing life to be the way it is and accepting the situation in the present moment
that we learn the lessons being offered to us with the most grace and totality.

Resistance is futile, because what we resist, persists.
You may as well let go and learn the lesson now.

So as I reflected on the wisdom that Henry shared with me today,
I see that I am on my back right now too and looking up.

It is good to look up, because that is where miracles come from.
Our good comes from God and by being open and receptive we receive it now.

Henry, who is almost 80, was fortunate to have his sister for most of his life.
Now may she find peace and rest on the next part of her journey.

In speaking with Henry there was a sweet sadness present.
Even though he shared some humor with me and wisdom, he was allowing himself to feel his loss.

In his sadness there was actually a sweetness that I could strongly sense.
Because Henry was feeling his feelings and being present.

Life is a gift, for it allows us to experience and feel all that we are and all that God gives us.
Make every moment count…….

The Real Game of Life – A Journey To Self-Actualization

posted by The MEGA Coach

 

There is a fundamental purpose of our lives.  To know it, we must understand where life comes from and where it is going,  look beyond our immediate goals to what we ultimately want to accomplish and consider life’s highest potential for development.”

Paramahansa Yogananda

 

Life is a journey; a learning process for us to discover and actualize our divine, creative potential.
It is a game of giving and receiving….energy, love and joy.

Even death is not real, because only the physical body turns to dust.
The spirit and soul cannot be destroyed and continue on in a different form.
(Einstein proved that energy cannot be created or destroyed, it only changes form)

Our society tends to focus on the material and financial success in life.
“Money, sex & power” appear to be the most important interests for people.
It is easy for fear to run people’s lives instead of faith, trust and truth.

Yet, the true game of life is a much higher and nobler process of growth and development.
In the end, the only thing we take with us is love and kindness.
How much money, sex or power or possessions can you take with you when you die?

True success in life comes by expressing our natural essence as Spiritual Beings and children of God.  It comes from helping each other with unconditional love, kindness, gentleness and compassion.

When we look at another person, we must be careful not to lapse into judgment, righteousness or superiority.  Remember, “For there by the grace of God go I.”

The lessons we learn, the challenges, problems, losses, physical & health conditions, hurt, etc give us our greatest growth.  Each of us has our own, unique “cross to bear.”  From these experiences we actualize more of our true self and divine potential.

May you manifest the divine plan of your life, under grace and in perfect ways.

Life is so precious, make the most of your time and energy.

The Gift of Friendship

posted by The MEGA Coach

 

“The most I can do for my friend is simply be their friend.”


Henry David Thoreau

 

Today I heard a story about how one friend helped another.
They cared enough about someone else to do what most people would not.

It could be something small or it could be something big.
But, it is always something meaningful to the person in need.

Friendship is one of the most blessed forms of love.
It is pure and noble.  It is sweet.

As my wife shared what her friend had done for her today, I felt joy in my heart.
For being a friend is one of the greatest gifts in life.

At dinner, my wife shared with me what our son did for her.
Here was another act of friendship and pure giving.

Again it warmed my heart and brought a smile to my face.
It also brought a smile to my soul.

Then in the evening, my wife shared with me that she had received a gift from another friend.
Another person cared enough about someone else to do what most people would not.

This is extraordinary!  What a blessed day!
Three random acts of wonderful friendship and generosity.

Remember a time when a friend of yours did something special for you.

How did that make you feel?  What did you say to yourself?

What do you remember most?

 

“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”
