Dog Poet Transmitting…….
“I believe it’s our loss of connection with our instinctual side that prevents us from being effective pack leaders for our dogs. Perhaps it’s also why we also seem to be failing at being positive guardians of our planet.”
We seek to address a critical item today which is as much personal as it is general. We will use the words of Paramahansa Yogananda as a guide, both for what is right and what is effective. I will also add the word, ‘appropriate’. I am not Yogananda but I take the justification for some amount of my actions from what I have heard concerning what is acceptable in the push and pull; the coming and going of interplay in virtual space.
Sir, what should I do to find God? A student asked. The Master said:
“During every little period of leisure, plunge your mind into the infinite thought of him. Talk to him intimately; He is the nearest of the near, the dearest of the dear. Love him as a miser loves money, an ardent man loves his sweetheart, as a drowning person loves breath. When you yearn for God with intensity, He will come to you.”
“Some persons think that unless a devote undergoes great trials, he is not a saint. Others assert that a man of God-realization should be free from all suffering,” the Master said during a lecture.
“The life of each master follows a certain unseen pattern. St. Francis was afflicted with diseases; the fully emancipated Christ allowed himself to be crucified. Other great personages, such as Thomas Aquinas and Lahiri Mahasaya, passed their days without tremendous stress or tragedy. Saints attain salvation from backgrounds vastly different.. True sages demonstrate, regardless of external conditions, they are able to reflect the Divine Image within them. They play whatever role God wills, whether or not it conforms to public opinion.”
