Gita

A Spark of Eternity…

15.7 A spark of my eternal Spirit becomes in this world a living soul; and this draws around its centre the five senses and the mind resting in nature. - The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 15)

the spark

Krsna the supreme personality, according to The Gita, confidently declares that a fragment of divinity becomes us. We spring from that bit of eternity which is at our core. Let’s ponder the significance of this idea…

life purpose

We are thoroughly confused. We know not wherefrom we come and we know not whereto we’re headed. As we grow physically and mentally, is it not an imperative that we grow spiritually as well? Should we not question why we exist? Should we not attempt to understand the goal of life?

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM curious.

Gita

What It Takes…

14.24 Who dwells in his inner self, and is the same in pleasure and pain; to whom gold or stones or earth are one, and what is pleasing or displeasing leave him in peace; who is beyond both praise and blame, and whose mind is steady and quiet… 

14.26 And he who with never-failing love adores me and works for me, he passes beyond the three powers and can be one with Brahman, the ONE.. - The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 14)

equanimity

We use meditation to still our mind. When the mind’s still it connects to Spirit more readily. Without stilling our mind the electro-chemical nature of our body and mind makes it exceedingly difficult to make such contact. Let’s practice stillness.

love

As we increase our contact with Spirit, life becomes easier, we become more peaceful, we’re suddenly more creative, we’re happier, life is good and continues to be an adventure! Loving everyone becomes a whole lot easier!

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM still.
