“Because worldly achievements generally require stressful effort,
many people, when they take up the practice of meditation,
try ‘hard’ also to reach inner calmness.
In fact, the key to right meditation is relaxation—
physically, emotionally, and mentally.
The energy is drawn up the spine in response to another kind of ‘gravity:’
the upward pull of Spirit, which one feels first in the heart,
and then at the Kutastha between the eyebrows,
the seat of the spiritual eye.
This is the pull of divine love.”
Paramhansa Yogananda, from The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita
Our souls have deep eyes of blessings
that are in the spaces where we listen, and heal,
and grow in our minds and bodies
that need transformation in the world.
Our souls are bright lights of blessings
that pour from us without ceasing.
In our souls, we know that we can come to God
asking for nothing
because we are the answered prayer.
Our souls have no need for doubt, or worry,
or pain because our souls are wholeness,
the whole being of perfect health, beauty and awareness.
