Week of July 24  - July 30, 2017

“Spirit existed before God. God is the Creator of the universe, but Spirit is the Creator of God. Spirit is not the universe; Spirit is that which was and will be whether the universe does or does not exist. Spirit includes everything."

             -Paramahansa Yogananda

Weekly Affirmation:

As Thou art omnipresent, Thou canst not be but present in me. Omnipresence presupposes omnipotence and omniscience. These also are attributes of my soul. O Spirit, may I be able to unfold even a fragment of That which my inner Self contains

(Metaphysical Meditations)
