Sunday 12-6-15 All Sails Set

Happy Sunday!
“We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather about us that they may see, it may be, their own images, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life because of our quiet.” ~ W.B.Yeats

I feel good.  I feel like pieces and preparations are almost in place for the next step in my growth.
I am at ease in my relationships, work life, and home life.  I have learned great lessons to put right my behaviors and beliefs that caused my suffering and conflict with others.  What I am saying is that I feel confident!
I can do it! I can live in the world in a loving way and, in this way, succeed at the things that I must do.
I feel I am ready to go within now.  I can balance my physical life with my spiritual seeking.
I finally did it – I signed up for Yogananda’s ‘Self Realization’ lessons.  I just know it is time as, in addition to my feelings, my experiences seem to all relate back to him, my daily readings online, the book I am reading currently, and even a DVD movie I just received entitled ‘Awake’ about the life of Paramahansa Yogananda. (I loved it!)
The daily lessons on ‘’ are giving me insights into the importance of meditation so my practice has improved.  My daily devotions and concentration during meditation are getting stronger now that Yogananda’s words are explaining to me the interior path.
I feel peaceful.
I went back to read my posts from a few weeks about ease.  I re-used as my opening quote one from 11-1-15 as it spoke to me again today.
There have been disturbing events around the world each week for the last few weeks.  I remained peaceful.  I sent prayers to those who were directly touched by the events but I didn’t put my attention to them. A part of me wonders if I am wrong that I don’t involve myself in the conversations or following the news instead, staying distant feels right for me. My lessons tell me that there is good and bad, dark and light, in everything about this physical life.  I can’t say that I understand why these things happen but I know there is always good to be found from the bad.
The quote at the top helped me to recognize my role in things, to hold onto the energy of peace and support to those around me who may lose their well-being in the low energy of fear.
A while back I thought that I might pursue energy healing until I heard Sadhguru speak against energy healing.  He felt the practitioner should not be involved with processes that they don’t understand and that the patient might require the dis-ease to learn the message the body is sending.
I just realized that staying peaceful and open during times of fear and trouble can be a service to others. A peaceful loving energy can help to sooth them and, perhaps, be an example so that they can reflect on themselves to seek the way to peace for themselves.
As my devotion strengthens and the peace of God fills me, I feel joy with the thought of sharing that peace with others.
I wrote on 11-1-15 about ‘still waters’.  At that time I was learning to be at ease with the quiet times.  The excitement is rising within me so I have set my sails in preparation for the flow I know that is coming to take me to new places on my journey to you God.
“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” ~ Matthew 4:16
