“You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you; none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.” – Swami Vivekananda
This is the second time today that this yogi has come to my attention. I had not heard of him before, or if I did I was not remembering it. Being a very curious person, I set out to learn about him and immediately found a connection to Paramahansa Yogananda that is mind-blowing. It seems that one of Yogananda’s disciples had a near death experience as a child and Swami Vivekananda appeared to him. He later attended an event on spirituality and the swami was on stage speaking. The boy spoke with him and asked him to be his master after relaying the story of his near drowning. Swami Vivekananda said that he was not the boy’s guru but that one was coming to America who was and he would gift him with a silver cup. Forty-three years later, this disciple was following Yogananda and learning from him. At Christmas that year, Yogananda presented the man with a gift just as was predicted when he met Vivekananda. He opened the gift and it was a silver cup, just as the swami had predicted.
Dear Angels, I believe that anytime we are ready to learn more, a master will appear to help us understand and go deeper. When we lose the preconceived notion of what that master may look like or sound like, we are then ready to experience what spirit is bringing to us. I have been going deeper in meditation every day and I believe I am now seeing exactly what I need before me to learn from. I understand what you have taught us about how we complicate things, and the need to keep it simple. It is in the simplicity that the deeper lessons will come.
Dear Ones, your spiritual teacher will always give you a sign. This could be through words or through a physical symbol. Pay attention. Sometimes it may appear as a bright light as in the story that was shared here. Mostly, though, it is more subtle. It is a feeling and knowingness in the deep part of your bowel. It is called awe. We always celebrate when one of you connects with your higher teacher. Be open to being taught. Lose the ego mindset of knowing everything because you do not. If you continue with this attitude, you will miss out on so much in life. You are taking the long way around instead of following the GPS directions. If you are open to grow, you will grow. If you choose to be stagnant or stumble around for answers, then so it shall be. Dear Ones, your light is needed. You are here for such a time as this. Only you can decide if you will continue on this path of discovery.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to keep on keeping on and always look for the signs.
