THE LISTENER IN YOU

The speaker in you tells you
That you and he can transform
The length and breadth of the world.
The listener in you tells you
That you and he can manifest
God-Light, God-Truth and
God-Perfection on earth.
I tell you,
The listener in you is sincere and genuine.
Give him a chance.
He will do everything to please you,
To fulfil you.
Just give him a chance.

Stillness and Strength

Stillness is where we get the strength. The abode of stillness is in our higher mind or quiet mind. So if you can stay in that room, the quiet mind, then you can grow in stillness. It is stillness that creates. Creativity actually starts from stillness.

Even if one moves he may be still. I think stillness is like the eye of a storm, which is still, but around it, everything moves. I think also that artistic stillness, even if it has a lot of movement in it, has to be quiet at the centre.

What Does God Really Think of Me?

Question: What does God really think of me?

Sri Chinmoy: God always thinks of you as His dream—not an old dream but a new dream. Every day He thinks of you as a new dream, specially on your birthday. On that day He thinks of you as an unprecedented dream of His. On every individual’s birthday, God thinks of that particular individual as His unprecedented dream, that is unlike any other dream.

Pranayama for Spiritual Aspirants

The only breathing exercise a spiritual aspirant really needs is to try to breathe in purity. While breathing in, if he consciously imagines and feels that he is breathing in Perfection from above, then the limitations inside his system are automatically transformed. The moment we breathe in consciously, the prana inside us has more value. But to go through many vigorous exercises is not at all necessary for God-realisation. If we can breathe in slowly and deeply, and have a devoted feeling toward the Supreme and toward humanity while breathing, we will be able to enter into the world with our divinised breath.

Gratitude

Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude.

Gratitude is a miracle-action in us. This miracle-action strengthens our physical body, purifies our vital energy, widens our mental vision and intensifies our psychic delight.
