Meditation for Christmas

Celebrate the birth of Christ in the cradle of your consciousness during the Christmas season. Let His vast perception in Nature, in space, and in universal love be felt within your heart.

Break the limitations of caste, color, race, religious prejudice,and inharmony, that the cradle of your heart be big enough to hold within you the Christ-love for all creation.

On every Christmas morn of your inner perception, prepare precious packages of divine qualities and deliver them to the beloved souls who gather around the Christmas tree of inner awakening, to commemorate His birth in understanding, truth, and bliss.

Celebrating the birth of omniscient, omnipresent Christ Consciousness on the joyous Christmas festivity of your inner awakening, you will find the unbroken happiness of your dreams.

Let the omniscient Christ Consciousness come to earth a second time and be born in you, even as it was manifested in the mind of Jesus.

(Metaphysical Meditations) by Paramahansa Yogananda

Anyone Can Practice Yoga

It may come to a surprise to some that I practice Yoga (then again, maybe not)..I don’t do it regularly but sporadically. But when I do I often wonder why I don’t do it every day…it makes me feel good…physically and emotionally (especially when followed by meditation). It is, in fact, yoga and positive thought that, I truly believe, helped me overcome a herniated disk without surgery. Anyhow, the reason I’m posting this video (which I found at Yoga Mom) is because it made me laugh…not at the video but with it. Many people believe that to practice yoga entails twisting into a pretzel or some other position that only a 19-year-old agile woman can…but in truth yoga is more of a life style…stretches are just part of it. Anyhow, I have always been a believer that anyone can practice yoga…even the biker in this 30 second clip. To see another equally inspiring clip visit Yoga Mom.
