For 1999

 

December, 1999

  One of the primary lessons on the path is that of discrimination - discrimination between false and the true; discrimination between the real and the unreal, between right and wrong; discrimination too between the promptings of your own higher or lower self. No one can teach us; no one can give us this divine attribute of discrimination. It is gained through experience and meditation.

Discrimination and discernment means getting your values right, and learning to look first at the spiritual aspect of every situation. If you have a problem, never try to answer that problem by the material standard only but look at it squarely and ask: 'What is the spiritual meaning of this?'. Always accept the spiritual value. Pray for true vision, and remember too that in helping others, as you all long to do, you help your brother to bear his burden, you stand by him as he crosses his bridge, but you do not try to take his karma from him, for his karma may help him to grow nearer to God. Nor do you indulge him in things which are going to satisfy him only for the moment.

Thought Power in Service

There are struggling human souls, many, like yourselves, earnestly endeavoring to overcome inner weaknesses which in their own souls they acknowledge. You cannot see or know the inner struggles of another, nor the difficulties and weaknesses which bind him and sometimes make him act in a way you do not understand; but you who are learning, not only from our words but from the promptings of your own teacher, can do so much to help others by the kindly positive thoughts, by seeing the Christ in them. Think of your neighbour as being a child of God, as you yourself, with the same problems that you suffer, the same weaknesses, the same aspirations. Where this or that man stands, only God can know. Nevertheless, all are of the same spirit, and all experience the same struggles and problems and needs as yourself.

So go about life condemning none, but looking kindly and with love upon all; hold no harsh thought even about a so-called enemy. In truth, no man can really be your enemy, all are your teachers; and when you are tempted to feel injured or resentful because of some apparent injustice, look first within yourself and ask, "What has this to show me, what have I to learn from this?" In time truth will reveal itself, so that instead of thinking antagonistically you will be able to say, "Thank you, brother, for you have taught me much, and helped me". The other person's motive is not your business. Behind is the guiding hand of wisdom. The great lords of karma rule your ways, and any apparent injustice can be transformed into a jewel of great beauty in your temple, even as deep suffering can bring divine revelation. So put away any sense of injury and look out upon the world with a calm love.

You Choose Your Life

Some people think that few have to endure such troubles as fall to their lot. They feel that if they were in different circumstances they could do so much better. Given bigger income, for instance, more freedom, more leisure, how much good they could accomplish! They note with sorrow how their neighbour, blessed with the wealth and leisure they envy, seems to ignore or neglect the needs of his fellows.

Beloved children, your life is governed by law, and you find yourselves in exactly the place and with the circumstances which you yourself have chosen. "But this is nonsense," you will say. "I would never have chosen this life !" This is the outer-self speaking, the mortal mind; but the real self, the divine spirit within, knows the needs of your soul. Think of this God-urge as a radiant light ever guiding your soul on the path. Not a moment of your time need be wasted or misspent. The whole purpose of your life and the purpose behind every human experience is the growth and unfoldment of your soul. If you will delve beneath the surface of experience for wisdom and knowledge, you will hasten this process of growth and unfoldment. It is not what is happening to you on the outer planes; it is neither your circumstances, nor the riches which you may or may not possess that matter, but only your inner reaction to those circumstances, your relationship from within of your fellow man and to God. The circumstances of your life are actually a form of initiation through which you are daily passing.

An Angel wrote:

Many people will walk in and out or your life,
but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.

To handle yourself, use your head,
To handle others, use your heart.

Anger is only one letter short of danger.

If someone betrays you once, it's his fault.
If he betrays you twice, it's your fault.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.

God Gives every bird it's food,
but He does not throw it into it's nest.

He who loses money, loses much;
He who loses a friend, loses more;
He who loses faith, loses all.

Beautiful young people are acts of nature,
but beautiful old people are works of art.

Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.

The tongue weighs practically nothing,
but so few people can hold it.

Friends, you and me ...
you brought another friend...
and then there were 3 ...
we started our group...
Our circle of friends ...
and like the circle ...
there is no beginning....
there is no end.

Keep this going. E-mail all your friends this message.
E-mail all those friends you never met.
Those you have.....................
And those you've lost along the way.
Here is an Angel sent to watch over you.
In order for her to work,
you must pass this on to
the people you want watched over.

THE STRUGGLE OF THE BUTTERFLY


A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared.
He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours. It struggled to
force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making
any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and
it could go no farther.

So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors
and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then
merged easily, BUT, it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.

He continued to watch the butterfly. He expected that, at any moment,
the wings would enlarge and the body would contract.
Neither Happened!

In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with
a swollen body and shriveled wings. It was never able to fly. The man
acted with well- intentioned kinds, but he didn't understand the
consequences.

The restricting cocoon and the struggle required to get through the
tiny opening, were God's way of forcing fluid from the body of the
butterfly into it's wings so that it would be ready for flight once
it achieved it's freedom from the cocoon.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If God
allowed us to go through life without any obstacles, it would cripple
us. We would not be as strong as we could have been....
and we could never fly.....

Have a great day, great life, and struggle a little.... Then Fly!

  In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all, and it often comes with bitter agony. Perfect relief is not possible except with time. You cannot now believe that you will ever feel better. But this is not true. You are sure to be happy again. Knowing this, truly believing it, will make you less miserable now. I have had enough experiences to make this statement. --- Abraham Lincoln

  If you put a diamond near a black cat, the diamond will reflect black. Can you then say the diamond is black? No. As soon as you remove the black cat and allow light to play on the diamond, it dazzles with its own natural luster. The black cat is your restlessness, which darkens your consciousness with emotions and obscures the light and joy of the soul. The very nature of restlessness is such that by the time you are feeling pleasure from one thing you are looking for something different, a persistent discontent stirred by feeling. But bliss --- the joy of God hidden in your soul --- is always new, always constant in your consciousness. Because it gives complete satisfaction, there is no more restlessness in you. --- Paramahansa Yogananda

  "Sir, what should I do to find God?" a student asked.
The Master said:

"During every little period of leisure, plunge your mind into the infinite thought of Him. Talk to Him intimately; He is the nearest of the near, the dearest of the dear. Love Him as a miser loves money, as an ardent man loves his sweetheart, as a drowning person loves breath. When you yearn for God with intensity, He will come to you."
--- Paramahansa Yogananda

  I am a part of the Great Spirit and the winds of circumstance cannot shake me.
I will rise triumphant over every difficulty because of the infinite power which is within my soul

  When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts. Oh, may you feel this touch, -- it is not the clasping of hands, nor a loved person present; it is more than this: it is a spiritual idea that lights your path! The Psalmist saith: "He shall give His angels charge over thee."
God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies.

Mary Baker Eddy (Miscellaneous Writings 306)

  The man whose heart is filled with love, is never daunted, is not cast down; he does not give way to unworthy fears, either about himself, his physical body, or the welfare of those he loves, because he has been quickened by the divine light and power, and therefore nothing can go wrong. Things only go wrong when the mind of self starts to fret and rail against the circumstances of life, and you say, "I am disappointed because the circumstances of life will not go as I...I...I want them to go!" Then suffering and chaos result, because the contact is cut. If only you had the strength to live always within the peace of God, to live in the truth -- "Thy will, O God, be done on earth, in my life...Thy will, not mine!"

But when you do fall down and everything seems chaotic, remember that there is a helper by your side. Your guardian angel has seen your fall, but he will not condemn. He does not say, "I told you so!" Instead, he whispers into your heart, "Courage...I will help you rise again. Look up, look out! God is still in His heaven and all is well."

Hold fast to this thought, especially at times when blow after blow seems intent on knocking you out. Cultivate a sense of humour, but don't lose strength in your knees! Get up, and stand firmly on your feet again, remembering that you are being helped willingly and readily by the one at your side. Keep on keeping on and refuse to be downcast. Most of us can be cheerful when everything is going our way, but strength of the spirit shows when a man can smile when things appear to be all against him. Remember it is through the experiences of this life on earth -- and this life alone -- that you will learn to reach the higher life. Aspiration towards God and the higher life is what really matters.

  Those who seek prosperity for themselves alone are in the end bound to become poor, or to suffer from mental inharmony; but those who consider the whole world as their home, and who really care and work for group or world prosperity...find the individual prosperity that is legitimately theirs. This is a sure and secret law. --- Paramahansa Yogananda
 

 

May, 1998

  Millions of people never analyze themselves. Mentally they are mechanical products of the factory of their environment, preoccupied with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, working and sleeping, and going here and there to be entertained. They don't know what or why they are seeking, nor why they never realize complete happiness and lasting satisfaction. By evading self-analysis, people go on being robots, conditioned by their environments. True self-analysis is the greatest art of progress.

Everyone should learn to analyze himself dispassionately. Write down your thoughts and aspirations daily. Find out what you are -- not what you imagine you are! -- because you want to make yourself what you ought to be. Most people don't change because they don't see their own faults. ---
Paramahansa Yogananda
