"In the vault of the mind lie all the chains of bondage, as well as the keys to freedom."-Paramhansa Yogananda
This coming Wednesday mediation meeting: I am so happy that Baljinder and Sonya Singh will be sharing with the group about their experiences in Ananda India. Their sincerity and genuine kindness is very heart warming and it'll be a treat to have them visit and be able to answer questions too!
Also, this week's topic will be Positive Thinking
. Yogananda, an early pioneer of affirmations emphasized that healing words alone may be neutral, but- combined with meditation practice and an openness of the heart- can literally transform our lives from the inside-out. As he said, "words saturated with sincerity, conviction, faith, and intuition are like highly explosive vibration bombs, which, when set off, shatter the rocks of difficulties and create the desired changes."
In my own experience, I have found this to be true- so many wonderful things have come to pass by keeping and open mind, focusing on the positive, especially in the face of life's challenges! This is not Pollyanna- it's just making a conscious choice where to focus the energy and expand from there.
This is going to be a fun night and I hope to see you Wed! Also, speaking of positive affirmations, stay tuned for the chanting workshop this coming Saturday 2-5pm!Joy to you!
