The virus has been a microscope that forced us to take a closer look at our habits and systems revealing flaws that we just couldn't take the time to scrutinize beforeMeditation serves as a microscope for our thinking The habit of concentration releases you from the grip of your thoughts allowing you to take a step back to see the bigger picture Meditation disassociates us from our thinking self the self that is influenced by things outside of our control like helpless leaves in the wind By taking a step back to observe our thoughts like watching a movie as opposed to living it we disidentify from the highs and lows that the protagonist is subject to We are no longer leaves blowing back and forth at the mercy of the wind but instead are merely observing the phenomenon whilst grounded in ourselves Let the thoughts be and then let the thoughts go This is the first step towards inner peaceLuther Burbank a renowned American horticulturist had a nice cameo in Autobiography of a Yogi I came across this uote of his that isn't from the book but nicely illustrates the above pointThe God within us is the only available God we know and the clear light of science teaches us that we must be our own saviours if we are to be found worth savingTerms like God the Infinite and the Creator come up freuently in the book We have become accustomed to associating these words with institutional religion and so at a uick pass your interpretation of them is at the mercy of whether or not you subscribe to these religious institutions Only after grappling at what these words might mean for me personally as someone who leans towards rationality over mysticism did I begin to appreciate them in a new lightFor me this meant substituting the word God with the ability to create and the Infinite with imagination and creativity Given the countless inventions and works of art that humans have produced throughout our history I think we can agree that our ability to create and imagination exists despite the differences in our spiritual beliefsIn reading Luther Burbank's uote above with this new framework I interpret it as saying something alo

Well it is very different The pictures are different It has recent pictures of what is apparently the newer leaders of SRF after Yogananda's death Some of the amazing older pics from the original book were removed which is just heartbreaking for me I can tell it just isn't the same vibration I wasn't getting the same feel So a few days into it I put the book down and just bit the bullet got over my penny pinching self and re ordered the blue version I would say if you are interested in the SRF organization buy this one If you want the original version that Yogananda himself wrote get the blue one The blue version is also free online I downloaded it but nothing like having a book in your hands Especially one that has a healing vibrational uality to it
