"Divine love is without condition, without boundary, without change. The flux of the human heart is gone forever at the transfixing touch of pure love."-Swami Sri Yuksteswar
It certainly can take some courage to live "looking up" with an open heart guide our lives rather than "head down" feeling closed off with clenched fists. Specifically in a big city, there's not guarantee that others will respond in kind, negatively, or at all. Yet, yoga teaches that a contractive heart cannot bring happiness at all- it just endlessly attracts more of the same contraction! What's preventing us from living expansively the way deep down we know in out hearts is authentic? A missing link for most people is not having the safe, relaxed support of like-minded people who are striving to do the same-and great yogi Paramhansa Yogananda even said continually, "environment is stronger than will-power." That's where meditation satsangs (gatherings) like ours comes in!
This coming Thursday 7:30pm, we will explore meditation as a very powerful way to feel unshakeable inner security and faith. This ancient yogic practice is a priceless means to "peel off the artichoke layers" of inner stuff that doesn't work anymore, so that one can feel childlike joy, freedom, and even love in the "heart."If this sounds appealing, we hope to see you Thursday night or sometime soon!
