Truth is one and eternal. As we all learn and grow we find that we all learn the same truths, regardless of our varying individual paths. God is Love. God is also Joy and Peace. To know God is to know Joy.  This life we are in is all God's play. It's not always within our understanding, but it all does come from our Divine Mother.
Everything that comes to us - if we love God - is for our benefit. We're not even able to always tally our 'wins and losses', at least in the short term. However, the challenges and the reaching out for God are how we grow - as long as we know and accept this.

Inspiration from
             Swami Kriyananda

"One of the mistakes people make, I think, in whatever efforts they put forth to improve their lot, is to compartmentalize their lives. They'll take classes and study books on, let us say, the importance of positive thinking. But they'll do nothing to improve the atmosphere in their homes, the color of their clothes, their tone of voice, their posture, their diet, their use of words, their choice of friends."

How to Pray
by Nayaswami Anandi 

Inspiration from
             Paramhansa Yogananda

"Once one can escape the law of karma by identifying himself with God. Once he is able to do that, he should forgive his brothers who sin against him... Every soul, therefore, should remain divine by continuously forgiving and loving as God does."
