Week of January 19 - January 25, 2015

“We experience this earth through the five senses of taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight. Heaven is experienced through intuition. That is why it is necessary to meditate often and deeply. In that state you develop the sixth sense, or intuition. We are not flesh, we are Spirit. There is a heaven waiting for you and the only way to get there is by developing your intuition through intense prayer and meditation.”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda
