Wishing You a Heart full of Meraki

“Meraki” is something you do with passion, from the heart, with absolute devotion, and undivided attention—similar to the total devotion of a mother to her child.

Myths, Oracles, Magnetism & Attunement

When I was in India in 1990, I met a female Hindu mystic who was able to use her consciousness in a way that I never imagined.  Just by deeply attuning her own exalted awareness to particular mythical deities from the higher yugas she could invoke them to tell her their stories.

Non-Violence, the Eclipse, Dwapara Yuga & You

With so many wars and violence swirling around this planet, what are we to do? I think about this every morning and evening when I finish my meditation.  Who do I pray for now?  Which country needs the most prayers?  And on and on….

Driving the Astral Highway

On this planet that we currently inhabit, there’s a little-known highway that travelers can experience, if they so desire. It’s a highway so subtle it requires a magnitude of spiritual willingness even to begin.

How Deep is Your Love?

As a teenager, I remember hearing on the radio a popular song called How Deep is Your Love? Reflecting on my adolescent conception of love, it was all about some of those lyrics—”And you come to me on a summer breeze, keep me warm in your love then you softly leave, and it’s me you need to show, how deep is your love?”

Sound Healing of the Rishis & CPAK

One of the things that Yogananda professed was sound healing, which he called “the most powerful force in the universe.” Music penetrates more deeply into our consciousness, and into the brain and nervous system, than do paintings and other visual images. We have limited control over music’s effects once it enters our neural network.

Your Thoughts, Consciousness, Healing, Success & Creativity

Because man himself is an expression of the Creative Word, sound has the most potent and immediate effect, offering a way to remembrance of divine origin. – P. Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi

AI, Consciousness, Your Astral Body & the Saints

Today, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is everywhere.  There are now robot bees that can pollinate plants, and AI emotion recognition for job interviews.  Anything that previously required human intelligence is now being challenged.

The Nature of Satya Yuga

Can cataclysms get any bigger than they are now? The year was 1989. I was standing in my agency’s wobbly second story loft, just a few blocks from Stanford, where I once worked. My mind was riveted on a deadline. Co-workers were finishing last-minute conversations, trying to get the most out of an 8-hour work day. It was a few minutes past 5:00 pm. Suddenly, I felt the loft toss and rumble, a large truck navigating the garage below. I stared out the east-facing window as a sea of mountains bobbed up and down. Oh no, this is the big one.
