“Withdraw deeply to your own center;
then think of someone who lived long ago,
and focus your mind at his center.
You will see that, from your center to his,
a connection forms— as if your two islands,
seemingly separated by ocean water,
were connected more deeply by the earth underneath.
Everyone who is not you is simply your own deeper Self,
manifested differently, in a different form,
and even at different times.”
Paramhansa Yogananda, from The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita
My soul carries me forth today
to bless everyone whom I meet,
to carry the light of God to every corner of existence,
to pour love into every crack and crevice that forms,
to be the light that illuminates every patch of ignorance,
to speak the truth from lips untainted by ego or pride or judgment or fear.
My soul knows where the seat of the fire
is and rescues all who do not know that
their souls are the pure consciousness of God.
We are the divine victory, the awesome success,
the greater good that we are here to be.
