May 311 Dwapara

Visualize the planet floating in space between your divinely charged hands. Invoke the Presence of Babaji and Christ; surround the planet in Love and Light. May Divine Mother bless all in Her love.

“May we be able to awaken Thy Love in all hearts…AUM, Peace, Amen.”

Mahavatar Babaji is in constant communion with Christ; together they send out vibrations of redemption, and have planned the spiritual technique of salvation for this age. The work of these two fully-illumined masters-one with the body, and one without it-is to inspire the nations to forsake suicidal wars, race hatreds, religious sectarianism, and the boomerang-evils of materialism… Paramhansa Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi,

Dear Ones,

This past month there have been vast fires in Texas, huge tornadoes in the south, and flooding along the Mississippi River. Paramhansa Yogananda said there would come a time of severe challenges – financial and international – as well as natural disasters caused by built-up negative thoughts and vibrations of mankind. Instead of being overwhelmed by this news, how can we keep our inner peace during such times?

Pray and meditate. Serve others. Be an instrument of Light (physically, mentally and spiritually) in your own home, town or city, and your nation and planet. Invoke the blessings of Christ and Babaji over the whole planet, which in turn blesses you in the process. We do not know what the future holds, but such divine love is the antidote to the causative negative factors behind these difficulties.

Prepare in practical ways as well, according to your present cicumstances. Listen inwardly. May the grace of God, Christ, Guru bless you. And take heart in the words of the great Swami Shankaracharya: “No known comparison exists in the three worlds for a true guru.”

Joy to you,

KEEP YOUR WINDOWS OF LIFE OPEN

Human life can be compared to a house fitted with three windows of the body, mind, and soul. Through these openings come pouring forth the three kinds of divergent perfect light of God, known as health Rays, faculty rays, and wisdom rays. These triad rays are responsible for the perfect health, mental equanimity, and enlightenment of the soul of man. That is why man is spoken of as being created in the image of God. But then arises the question: if man is made after God’s likeness, why does he suffer in so many ways? The answer is that man as a divine child shares the independence of the Divine Being. Man essentially was made as a God, and as such he has the privilege and free choice of the great God to eclipse that image with error, or to keep it unobscured and dazzling with rays of health, power, and peace.

Man has the peculiar independence and free power to live in the house of life with health, strength, and light-giving windows open or closed. Thus it is that when he closes the windows of life, the ultraviolet conscious cosmic rays are shut out and he lives in the darkness of physical disease, mental disquietude, or abysmal soul-ignorance. Most people have one or more of their windows of life shut and jammed for years. That is why they suffer from chronic maladies. Their rescue lies in the knowledge of the law by which they may open their windows themselves and bask once more in the all-healing conscious cosmic rays.

Man wants instantaneous healing by God’s power, but he fails to understand that the work of healing lies with him and that God never wanted him to be sick in the first place. God gave man the original privilege and free choice to receive rays or shut them out. God cannot change His law arbitrarily just by the bribery of special ceremonies or blind prayer, or partiality. He can be moved only by the law and love. Love is law. When man closes the health-power-and-light-giving windows of life and keeps them closed indefinitely, he must himself make the effort to open those windows again to let the freely-willing-to-help, knocking-to-enter, Light in.

All physical diseases, psychological inharmonies, and soul maladies born of ignorance come from man’s own fault of shutting out the rays of God. And the logical, lawful conclusion is whether knowingly or unknowingly, he shuts the health-giving windows of life, he must open them again by self-effort. Ignorance of law cannot be an excuse for escaping the effects of a law that is broken. There are many ways of opening the three jammed windows of life. Those ways can be generally named as “healing.” And healing in general can be classified as physical healing, psychological healing of worries, fears, nervousness, and so forth and spiritual healing of soul-ignorance.

Paramhansa Yogananda, in the book, Divine Will Healing {Praecepta Lessons, Volume 2, (1938).}

God bless you.

In Divine Joy,
