    WHAT LESSON IS THERE IN THIS FOR ME?

    in Spirituality

    JOIN MARA AND BOB TO TALK ABOUT TECHNIQUES TO KEEP YOUR PEACE OR RECLAIM IT IN THE MIDST OF CHAOS.


    THERE ARE TIMES IN ALL OF OUR LIVES WHEN OTHERS SPEAK NEGATIVELY ABOUT US, YET, WE HAVE THE POWER TO DECIDE HOW WE WILL MANAGE THE SITUATION.


    THE FIRST STEP IS TO REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE.  IF SOMEONE CALLS YOU A TREE---THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU A TREE.  IF SOMEONE CALLS YOU A TRAIN---THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU A TRAIN.  YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE AND ANOTHER'S ACCUSATIONS CANNOT CHANGE WHO YOU ARE UNLESS YOU GIVE THAT PERSON THE POWER TO DO IT.


    LIFE HAS A BRIGHT SIDE AND DARK SIDE, FOR THE WORLD OF RELATIVITY IS COMPOSED OF LIGHT AND SHADOWS.  IF YOU PERMIT YOUR THOUGHTS TO DWELL ON EVIL, YOU YOURSELF WILL BECOME UGLY.  LOOK ONLY FOR GOOD IN EVERYTHING, THAT YOU ABSORB THE QUALITY OF BEAUTY.---PARAMAHANSA YOGANANDA 


    ALLOW ANOTHER TO BE IN HIS/HER THINKNG WITHOUT JOINING HER/HIM.  STAY TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE---TO YOU.


    GO INISIDE AND MEDITATE IN YOUR WAY TO REMIND YOURSELF OF YOUR VALUE, YOUR PURPOSE, YOUR CONSTANT CONNECTION WITH LOVE /GOD/ THE GREAT SPIRIT/ ALLAH/ YAHWEH/ THE GREAT I AM/ ALL THAT IS


    Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it. - Unknown


    The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world where everyone is trying to make you be somebody else.?~E. E. Cummings


    To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”?- Ralph Waldo Emerson


    LET US EACH RECOGNIZE OUR VALUE.


    JOIN US IN REMEMBERING  HOW LOVE HAS AFFECTED YOU THIS WEEK AND PASS IT ON.

    Is Yoga a Religion or a Science? And is it only for Hindus?

    in Self Help

    Encinitas, CA, a suburb of San Diego's North County is a great town. It is home to many surfers and Yogis. You will find plenty of Yoga studios all over town and also the temple of the Self-Realization Fellowship which is run by the disciples and followers of Sri Yogananda Paramahamsa along with their beautiful meditation gardens. While the town has great karma and energy, it was recently brought to the forefront of global news when parents of about 40-45 children went to court stating that the Encinitas School District was teaching religion and proselytyzing to their children by conducting Yoga classes on campus. Both the local court and the higher court rejected the claim of these parents who pulled their chidlren oput of these Yoga classes.
