Yogananda - Live in the moment

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Day by day, as you learn to meditate, a new awakening will come…
The mist of silence and mystery which hangs over everything will slowly vanish
before the dawning light of your mental and devotional search for God.“
Paramahansa Yogananda

Go Within
Life is a journey to manifest our natural essence and greatness.  Our infinite potential is already inside us, waiting to unfold like the pattern of the oak tree inside the acorn.  Once the acorn seed is planted in good soil, with sunshine and water, a beautiful tree grows.

So it is, life is a journey to develop into our divine potential in our personal character and values, belief systems, words, actions and lives.  We have the freedom of choice to align with truth, compassion and excellence in all areas of life.  We are spiritual beings, connected with all life and created in the image of God with co-creative abilities.

We create either heaven or hell, good or bad, health or disease in our lives.  This is a metaphysical world based on natural universal laws with a cause-effect relationship.  The knowledge of the universe is within us.  Meditation, being in the present moment, breathing, living from the heart and acts of service connect us strongly to this infinite intelligence and wisdom.

Along with kindness and compassion comes the important quality of forgiveness, for both ourselves and others.  Forgiveness brings freedom.  It is a way to healing and peace.

Deepak Chopra, “The Deeper Wound”:
“Forgiveness belongs to the heart.  You can understand its value, you can believe that it is moral, good, upright and righteous to forgive – but if you don’t feel it, forgiveness is forced.  Countless times you have needed forgiveness and countless times you have offered it to someone else.  The mantle of who is right and who is wronged gets passed around in a circle.  When you cannot find in yourself the purity of forgiveness, ask to feel more than you feel.  Spirit will give you new and better reasons to forgive someone.  It will show you another way.”

Is there anything you need to forgive in yourself or in others?

Judgment and being right is costly as we make other people wrong and push them away.  We also hurt ourselves, as what we give we receive.

Take a moment to breathe, look inside your heart and ask if there is anyone you need to forgive right now.  See what the universe presents.  Do it now, let go and be free.

There is a natural flow to life, nature and the universe.  Trust the process and allow life to be the way it is.

Have faith and belief – life and the universe always supports us.

A flower blossoms when it is ready.  A child walks at the right time.  Love is fulfilled at the perfect moment.  God comes through when we need him most in the eleventh hour.

Notice how we want things to happen when we want them.
What do we control?
Will we be alive in the next moment?

The universe has the first move – it’s in charge.  Some things happen before we can think of them and other things happen much later than we want.  There is a divine design and divine timing to everything.

Every apparent delay is for the best.

The ego/mind loves to make us think we are all powerful, in charge and in control.  When we are in our ego, we are not present in the moment.  We certainly are not in our heart and feelings.  Spiritual growth stops when the ego takes over.  The ego is a fear state.  Being present in the current moment is our point of greatest power.  It allows us to be awake, open, observing and receptive to what is happening now.

Everything is happening in perfect divine order.  There is an ebb and flow to life.  Sometimes we must first empty before we can receive.  Sometimes we are too full and need to release and cleanse in order to receive something new and better.

Remember a time when you felt in the flow.  You weren’t thinking or trying to make something happen.  You were just being, or in the moment.  This is when the best things happen and miracles occur.

The good you are seeking is also seeking you.
Stay open, positive and expect miracles.
Seek your divine plan or divine design.

The best way to receive is to give.

PersistentlyPositive

 

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

Life is a wonderful opportunity.  Every moment contains within it exactly what we need to grow and thrive.  Being healthy is an essential part of living a successful life.

What about our spiritual, mental and emotional health?  How much do spiritual, mental and emotional health contribute to physical and financial health?

Having a positive attitude is being optimistic about ourselves and life.  It is wise to expect good things, good situations and good opportunities and to remain calm and optimistic in the face of negative appearances.

Optimists smile frequently and pessimists frown.  Optimistic people see problems as temporary setbacks or learning opportunities and create solutions.  Pessimistic people see problems as permanent and do not think they can do anything to change them – so they usually don’t.  Pessimists also tend to complain a lot.

There is a difference between reacting and responding to life, people, situations and circumstances.  An optimist faces challenges and responds creatively where a pessimist fears challenges and reacts often as a victim.

Optimists see challenges, problems and difficulties as opportunities for growth, creativity and success. They have a healthy attitude and stay cool, calm and collected in the face of life and its challenges.  Optimistic people see what is happening and make better decisions and create solutions.

Life doesn’t happen to us, it happens through us and we make a choice every moment whether we are aware of it or not.

Make it a positive and prosperous day!

Below is a video about Alice Herz-Sommer, she was one of the oldest Holocaust survivors and passed at 110 years young.  Her attitude is remarkable.  They played and danced under the gallows in a concentration camp during WWII & Hitler’s madness.  Alice is grateful and optimistic about life even after living through what most people would consider a nightmare.  For Alice, music is a dream, it gives hope…music is God.
