Week of April 13 - April 19, 2015

“Mind power carries with it the unlimited energy of God; that is the power you want in your body. And there is a way to bring in that power. The way is communion with God by meditation. When your communion with God is perfect, the healing is permanent. When the causative power of God comes, the healing effect is instantaneous; no time is required for cause to ripen into effect.”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda
