Grief and loss bring one to new ways of looking at life. This video, below, by Swamiji was comforting to me in just the right way… Having your beloved on an entirely new plane of existence makes everything look different to those left behind. It’s all up for redefinition. Of course, I’ve head these thoughts before, but they penetrate my mind in a much deeper way now.
“Time and Space Do Not Exist”
The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita with Swami Kriyananda
Story from the life of Paramhansa Yogananda:
“A disciple asked, “How can intuition be developed?”
Yogananda: “The best way is, every time you meditate, to sit calmly for a long time after doing the techniques. It is during this period that you will be able to deepen your awareness of God’s presence within you. Go ever deeper in your enjoyment of that presence.
“The longer and more deeply you enjoy the peace within, the more quickly will your intuition develop.”
–from “The Essence of Self-Realization“, by Swami Kriyananda
“The calmer you grow, the more you will see the reflection of the universe within you.” ~~ Paramhansa Yogananda ~~
