Divine Timing, Divine Mission

“You may be surprised at what seclusion with God will do for your mind, body and soul. Through the portals of silence the healing sun of wisdom and peace will shine upon you.” Paramahansa Yogananda

In the early 90’s, I traveled to Boston to help a friend reunite with her family. I fell in love with the area and ended up staying for a year. It was a Divine destiny. I had just gotten out of a long-term marriage which had not ended well and I was in need of solitude and restoration. Boston provided me with that and more. I ended up with a group of women who meditated together weekly. Some of them were followers of Paramahansa Yogananda and thus I was introduced to his teachings and beautiful energy. I couldn’t get enough and read through his Autobiography of A Yoga as fast as I could because I felt a need to learn everything about him that I could. Then I immersed myself in his energy, go to a local ashram to meditate and chant. It was also during that time that I discovered A Course in Miracles and joined a study group to try to understand it more. This time was instrumental in my spiritual development as I developed habits of meditation and a closer walk with God. I had a twisted understanding of God up until that point in time, based on teachings of the religion I had been involved in since childhood. I came to know God not as a judge and punisher, but as a living loving being. Although my life took more turns to dark corners, I never forgot what had been opened up inside my heart with those experiences. I have carried a tiny book of Yogananda’s Metaphysical Meditations with me that I bought during that time. My favorite sentence from it reads, “Let my soul smile through my heart and let my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter Thy rich smiles in sad hearts.” The way we treat our fellow humans is important. Our smile could be the only one shared with another being we encounter. I try to remember these words of my “Beloved Yogi” as I go about the Journey. He is always guiding me and has become such an integral part of my being that I feel it is him taking this pilgrimage. When I visited the house dedicated to him in Vermont last fall, I stood by his picture and thanked him for his guidance. My friend Mary was still in the room and captured pictures of me standing there and you can see the amazing transformation as his energy merged with mine. I’m sharing that picture with this blog. It is not altered in any way and there were several taken, all showing the progressive movement of the spirit energy.

Dear Angels, all of us have to find our way “home” to our spirit self as we walk through this earthly experience. I believe we are Divinely guided to meet those who will be instrumental in walking us home. I am so grateful that I followed the nudging and was able to have that Divine connection that has only grown stronger at this point in my life.

Dear Ones, when you are ready, you will find the trail that will lead you to the teachers in your life. Until you are at a place of listening, however, you will not hear the message. It can be shouting at you right in front of your face but to no avail. We encourage you to take the time to go into silence, Dear Ones. The silence will speak loudly and clearly to you. Sometimes there will be a small voice calling your name. That is us nudging you to go inward to where the seat of your soul is just waiting to have a conversation with you. Sometimes we come in like a wrecking ball loudly enough that you stop in your tracks and perhaps pause just long enough to feel our presence. When it is time for your Divine moment with the Creator, we will do our part to set up the meeting. Will you do yours? Once your ears are attuned to hearing, and your precious being stops spinning, the meeting will be called to order. You all have Divine assignments, Dear Ones. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is simply to love.

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to love deeply and completely with each precious breath I take.
