God is all that we can imagine him to be,

He can be gentler than the gentlest breeze,
And more fierce than the hurricane.
He is the Lord of creation,
But is also a lady.
He is simpler than the simplest,
But more complex than complicated.
Smaller than the smallest,
Yet larger than the largest.
Closer than the closest,
But further than the farthest.
Friend to a friend,
Father to a… Continue

You are what your deep driving desire is.
As your desire is, so your will. As your will is,
So your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.
(Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV.5)
Most of us are familiar with the law of attraction. It has been debated around the world and put into practice by many. There have even been whole workshops devoted to just this law and we’ve found that it works for some, but not others. Why is this so?
A law is absolute. If it… Continue

Swamiji told us if we could ever feel for even a "second" the peace He has felt in meditation His work or (His life) then it was worth it.

On the surface of the world right now there is war and violence and things seem dark. But calmly and quietly, at the same time, something else is happening underground. An inner revolution is taking place and certain individuals are being called to a higher light. It is a silent revolution. From the inside out. From the ground up.

Swamiji said Master Sivananda gave the knowledge to Him and He gave it to us." Swamiji wanted us to practice as there were enough Preachers in the world. Swamiji would always do Asana & Pranayama whenever he got mad at the Ashram, so you can imagine He was pretty good !!! His own practice in the cave was to do Pranayame 0600, 1200,1800, & 2400 for 2 hours at a time. They called Him Swami "Monkeyman" as He always had pets/monkeys in the Ashram. Swami Chidananda once pretended to lift up… Continue

man. Whether you are controlled by others or by yourself does not
make much difference.
My sannyas is spontaneity, living moment to moment without any
prefabricated discipline, living with the unknown, not exactly
knowing where you are going. Because if you know already… Continue
