I gave a ride out of these Sierra foothills to a gold miner a couple of weeks ago. He had some good stories to tell. This is the best of them:
Some years ago, the gold miner and his wife were going through a time of extreme poverty. He wasn’t bringing in any money. She had a very limited income, and the checks only came once a month. The cash was gone. They were driving together and his wife was distressed. She kept talking about how they didn’t even have money for that night’s dinner. Our gold miner friend kept telling her that they just had to trust in the Lord. She would express her worry; he would answer, “We need to trust in the Lord. He will provide.”
They were driving in an area where he had once found fossils. He asked his wife to pull over so he could look for more fossils to sell.
She pulled over where he asked, and they got out of the car. Looking up, they saw a golden eagle on a tree above them, with a big salmon in its mouth. The eagle flew down to the ground, laid a five-pound salmon down in front of them, and flew away.
Joy to you,

Inspiration from Yogananda
“O Father, when I was blind I found not a door which led to Thee, but now that Thou hast opened my eyes I find doors everywhere: through the hearts of flowers, through the voice of friendship, through sweet memories of all lovely experiences. Every gust of my prayer opens an unentered door in the vast temple of Thy Presence.”
For the first time at The Expanding Light:
A program taught in Spanish.

¿Está buscando algo más que "sólo una clase de yoga", un enfoque integral que proporcione los beneficios del yoga espiritual así como sus beneficios físicos y mentales: relajación, vitalidad, paz interior y mucho más?
Inspiration from Swami Kriyananda
“From love for God, faith is born. Charity towards others nurtures love in our hearts. Forgiveness towards others draws an awareness of God’s forgiveness. Jesus stated it perfectly in the Beatitude: ‘Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.’ John Donne put it well also in the line: ‘No man is an island.’ Separate from one another though we appear to be, we are all one.”
