When I stop looking to the world outside for fulfillment, I can begin to draw upon the amazing inner resources of love, wisdom, and happiness that emerge when I attend to my inner world.
When I realize the significance of this turning away from the outside to develop a taste for going within, I can truly understand and practice what it means to “consider myself to be a soul”.
Since what I focus upon colors my consciousness, I am inspired to conquer the many pulls of Maya upon my intellect, which means all the distractions that can come up when I wish to contemplate the deeper, subtle levels of truth.
To turn within I practice sitting quietly and withdrawing my thoughts from the outside world. This includes the pulls of the body, possessions, and people. Then I’m able to focus on my inner identity, the spiritual aspect of the self which is pure light, like a sparkling star. This point of light, pure consciousness, is situated behind the eyes, and is I, the soul, the navigator of this brain and body. In some spiritual traditions, this point of awareness is remembered as the third eye.
Opening the third eye is like opening a window to another world. Even while situated here in the body, I am able to take my thoughts far beyond this physical universe, into a realm of peace and stillness. I understand this realm to be my original home, home of all souls, including the home of the Supreme Soul. I think of that One as also being like a point or a star, dimensionless, but radiant with the power of truth, unlimited and eternal.
6. In Dadi Janki’s words, the 103 year old yogi who is the administrative head of the Brahma Kumaris, and who has been practicing Raja Yoga Meditation since she was 19 years old…”As my consciousness reaches this incorporeal awareness and stage, it then becomes possible to develop a relationship with God. This takes me to a higher level of energy inside.
7. Every time I remember God, the relationship between us deepens. It’s such a beautiful discovery, that I can visit the Supreme Soul whenever I want, internally…when I leave on one side all my worldly relationships and connections, I experience all God’s qualities and powers.
8. I recharge, filling with this energy of truth that is also my own truth…When I return to my responsibilities in the physical world after recharging in this way, I find I can easily and naturally keep a positive frame of mind.” (pp.41-42/Janki)
Aloha Lovely Soul,
Thank you so much for coming to visit me at Enlightened Answers.!
I really love it when souls find benefit in what I'm writing.
These writings are based on daily spiritual study and meditation which when applied in life create a truly valuable way of life for the present and future lives as well.
It has been such a wonder to be tucked away in the Hawaiian Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for 27 years. The past 20 have been on the oldest and most serene island of the Hawaiian chain~the northern most island of Kauai.
Most people don't realize that Hawaii is made up of a chain of seven islands, sometimes related to the seven chakras of the human body. As Kauai sits at the top of the chain; it is often called the "crown" of the Hawaiian islands.
Who am I? I am a spiritual elder and practitioner of Raja Yoga Meditation. I am a healer of hearts because I have surrendered to the Almighty who has healed mine. I offer Spiritual Empowerment sessions that assist with building trust, faith, and strength in the Self.
For each of the past eight years, I've had the wonderful fortune to have traveled to northern India to the Brahma Kumari World Spiritual University on Mt. Abu, Rajasthan.
This wonderful place is also called Madhuban, which means Forest of Honey. It is a pilgrimage place dedicated to the Remembrance of God; a place to attend classes, a place to meditate by yourself or with many others; and a wonderful place to commune with like-hearted souls. It is an exceptional container reserved for souls who wish to live according to the highest codes of conduct. It is a place designed for souls to have a deep, rich, and loving meeting with the Supreme Soul. My annual journeys here have enriched my life immeasurably, beyond words.
Who am I? I am a peaceful soul who honors the peaceful soul of you. I am a lover of Truth and hope that you are able to glean deep soul answers in these writings which I , who once who was so lost and who is now found, shares with you.
Take the jewels that touch you, make them your own, and share them, for giving and receiving is a good part to play at this time of transformation of souls and of the earth.
If you are interested in going deeper, please do not hesitate to call upon me at 808-639-9436,
Many Blessings from My Heart to Yours,
