To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life.-Bette DavisPeople around the world have been talking about a movie so powerful that it can change the course of your life. This movie, The Secret, was created by Australian Rhonda Byrne, and she says that if you follow its philosophy, you can create the life you want--whether that means getting out of debt, finding a more fulfilling job or even falling in love.Rhonda

What is purity of heart

Sri Swami Satchidananda's NotesWhat is purity of heart? A heart full of tranquillity, full of peace. Having a steady mind, a balanced mind, is what you call purity of heart, Being well-balanced between the dualities: the ups and downs, the pleasure and pain, the profit and loss. If the mind is free from turbulence, then the seer can see its own nature. If your heart is pure and steady, you can see God reflected in that steady heart.OM Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi

Do u want to communicate with God

The very first created sound is OM. In a way the unmanifested God first manifests as OM. So if you want to communicate with God, who is vibrating in this OM sound, you should be able to receive that vibration by tuning your heart radio to the same frequency. The radio should be tuned to the same frequency as the transmitting station. God is transmitting His energy, His beauty, His love, His grace, everything at this OM frequency. If you want to receive it, where should you tune your radio? To th

Monthly News about Sri Anandamayi Ma

My Impressions of Anandamayi Ma(By Melita Mashmann, German author and long-time devotee of Ma)It is more than ten years since the day when I met Ma first, and up to now it has been the most important day in my life. I owed it only to my Guru’s grace and not to my own understanding that I recognized the importance at once.One day, after having been with Ma for about a month, I said to Her: “Ma, I did not come here to love you but to learn to love God better through you.” At that time I was so fas

Sri Swami Satchidananda's NotesQuestion: How should we pray? There seems to he a contradiction between totally trusting in God's Will and praying for someone or something.Sri Gurudev: It is the same thing. There is no contradiction at all. But you should understand the purpose of your prayer. You don't go and ask God, "Give me that". If you feel you must ask for something, then say, "Please give me understanding. Give me the constant remembrance that You are handling everything, that You will gi

You are what you think

You are what you think. Remember that. If your thoughts are impure, then your body is sick, your mind is sick, your life is sick. You may have all kinds of medicine around your house, hundreds of doctors to take care of you; but they cannot help you if you are poisoning your system with wrong thoughts. As you think, so you become. Thoughts are very important.OM Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi

Karmas

When someone blames you, what do you usually do? Blame them back or you put up resistance in yourself. When someone blames you, they actually take away some negative karma from you. If you understand this and don't be stiff instead feel happy about it, then the resistance drops. "Oh, good! That person is blaming me. Good! Something is going away." When you drop the resistance, your karma goes away!

Peace is God

Sri Swami Satchidananda's NotesIn the Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna says, "Think of Me always." When He says, "Think of Me," it should be taken as, "Think of God," because it is God who speaks in the name of Krishna. So "Think of God;" but how can you think of God without knowing what God is? We don't know what God is. All that we know about God is not really God. We only think in terms of what we have heard or read or assumed. In yogic understanding, what is God? Peace. Peace is God. So think of p

Sri Swami Satchidananda's NotesIn essence we are one, but in nonsense we are many. We need essence and nonsense. Life is for fun; otherwise God could have just created everyone alike with the same thoughts. Everything is God's Will. Nothing happens without His Will. He allows this chaos. Why? He must have thought, "Only by this chaotic situation will they really thirst for peace. Then, if I give them peace, they will really relish it."That is why we are looking for peace. We have had enough of f

Sri Swami Satchidananda's NotesOnce a young man went to Sri Ramakrishna and said, "Sir, I want to see God right away."Sri Ramakrishna said, "Before you see God we will go to the Ganges so you can take a bath." He took the young man to the Ganges and said, "All right, dip." But when he dipped into the water, Sri Ramakrishna held him under, Immediately the devotee started fighting for his breath. When the saint realized that he would not be able to stay under the water any longer, he let him up.As

The Place of Nothingness

"Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10)Do you find yourself in a place of nothingness? There is a time and place in our walk with God in which He sets us in a place of isolation and waiting. It is a place in which all past experiences are of no value. It is a time of such stillness that it can disturb the most faithful if we do not understand that He is the one who has brought us to this place for only a season. It is as if God has placed a wall around us. No new opportunities - simply i

Sri Swami Satchidananda's NotQuestion: If we have faith in God, do we need medicine when we are sick?Sri Gurudev: Medicine is also a gift from God. Prayer, medicine, and certain dietetic discipline could all be used at the same time. Even food is a kind of medicine for the pain of hunger. Do you say that if you believe in prayer, then you should not feel hunger? No. If you eat to relieve hunger, you can also take advantage of medical science when necessary. We can use all the things God has give

The following is one of my favourite quotes from the writings of Alfred D Souza." For a long time it had seemed to me that my life was about to begin - Real Life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business. Time still to be served. A debt to be paid. Then life would begin.At last it dawned on me that these obstacles WERE MY LIFE."(My emphases)The truth is that satisfaction often comes to us spontaneously, when we least expect it.

Becoming a Spiritual Being by Wayne Dyer

Posted by Christopher OV StaffBecoming a spiritual being is synonymous with becoming a miracle worker and knowing the bliss of real magic. The differences between people who are non-spiritual, or "physical only", and those whom I call spiritual beings are dramatic.I use the terms spiritual and non-spiritual in the sense that a spiritual being has a conscious awareness of both the physical and the invisible dimension, while the non-spiritual being is only aware of the physical domain.

Sri Swami Satchidananda's NotesONE DAY THAT GREATNESS WILL LEAP FORWARD IN YOUTraining the mind is worth doing at any cost. It's extremely difficult. That's why we don't see very many saints. If it were that easy, there would be thousands. How many saints have there been like that? You can easily count them.DDon't be discouraged; don't think that you shouldn't try for it. How do you know that you are not going to be a Buddha? How do you know that there is no Christhood or no Buddhahood in you? O

Sri Swami Satchidananda's NotesNever give up. Know that your spiritual goal is something great. You have fallen down from the summit, and you are on your way back up. It is greater even than climbing Mount Everest. As soon as the climbers get to the peak of Everest, they have to go down again. They never rest. But with the spiritual climb, once you get there you rest there forever.This is the highest peak. Just go on, steadily climbing. If you get tired, if you see some dense clouds coming, if t

Make your smile cheaper

A research done in England found that a baby smiles 400 times a day, an adolescent 17 times and an adult doesn’t smile at all! The more successful one keeps a very stiff face. Is roughness a sign of success? Is being stressed a sign of prosperity, growth or dignity?You should smile more. Every day, every morning, look at the mirror and give a good smile to yourself. You know what happens when you smile? All the muscles in your face get relaxed. The nerves in your brain get relaxation, and you ge
