“Every child comes with a message that God is not yet discouraged of Man.”


~~  Tagore


 “Ask yourself what you can do, and what you need to let go of, that God’s light of love and truth might shine through you.  Pray to Him to help you clear away the debris of fears, worries, resentments, or other limiting thoughts that create obstructions between you and Him, and between you and other souls.  

As the Lord Jesus shared our human nature and felt infinite compassion for us in all we pass through, let us try to be patient with ourselves and forgiving toward those around us.  Every though or action that reflects divine understanding and harmony allows God’s grace and blessings to flow into your life, which in turn can enlighten others in this world…”


~~  Sri Daya Mata,  Christmas Letter 2004, Self-Realization Fellowship of Paramahansa Yogananda
