“You must not let your life run in the ordinary way; do something that nobody else has done, something that will dazzle the world. Show that God's creative principle works in you.”
“Live each moment completely and the future will take care of itself. Fully enjoy the wonder and beauty of each moment.”
“forget the past, for it is gone from your domain! forget the future, for it is beyond your reach! control the present! Live supremely well now! This is the way of the wise...”
“Kindness is the light that dissolves all walls between souls, families, and nations.”
“The body is literally manufactured and sustained by mind.”
“To work with God's happiness bubbling in the soul is to carry a portable paradise within you wherever you go.”
Yogananda taught that the true state of reality is “center everywhere, circumference nowhere.” Every human being is, in actual fact, the center of the universe. The more he gathers his own forces inward, unto himself, not allowing himself to be swept helplessly down the river of life like a pebble, the more he can control his own destiny.
A God-centered life is the strongest guarantee of continued coherence and security. Most important of all will be a change of attitude: from taking to selfgiving; from greed to kindly sympathy and practical, personal help.
