Week of January 22 - January 28, 2018

“You must find heaven within yourself.  Establish your intuition by meditation so you will see that heaven where everything you have wanted will be given to you.  There is no pain, old age, death, or disease.  You become one with the Father."

Paramahansa Yogananda

Whether floating in birth, or disappearing in death, in the ocean of Divinity, the bubble of my life cannot die.  I am indestructible consciousness, protected in the bosom of Spirit's immortality.
