Today, in my sacred space, I was moved to search for teachings from Paramahansa Yogananda. I downloaded “The Law of Success” and started reading. As I read, the following reminders flowed into me…
Aligning my will with the will of the source of life is the way I experience success. In every failure, there is an opportunity to grow and heal. There is no need for suffering. Suffering is a flag that says “hey, something is off here”. Answers appear when I go within and ask what is off with an open heart and mind. The answers to every problem and solutions for every need are available at any moment. The quicker I learn lessons, the less trouble I experience in life. I give no energy to focusing on the trouble. Instead, I spend my energy focusing on the lesson, the gift, within the situation.
It is important not to do things for selfish power or to be “special” because of what I can do. That is a desire of the ego that distracts me from my spiritual quest. It is important for me to set aside time to connect with the source of life so I can attune my will to that source.
I have tasted the sweet fruitage of aligning myself with the unconditional love, goodness and power from the source of life. I also know the tragedy, stress and suffering from pursing goals that “prove” something. This duality is a gift in my life. I can choose the former whenever I wish. I choose it now.
This is freedom.
This is joy.
This is passion.
This is the gift of my life!
From my heart to yours,
Thanks for reading
