Week of March 09 - March 15, 2015

“If you make up your mind to do something good, you must do it. Don’t let anything stand in your way. But before you make a resolution, determine that it is a good one. When I make up my mind I do not listen to any other suggestion. I sometimes take long time to make up my mind; but when I do, nothing can stop me. A law of God operates for you when you strongly make up your mind and then adhere to that strong resolution.”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda
