Dear friend,

Challenge Authority” says the bumper sticker.

All of us, in our countless previous incarnations, have lived numerous lives of oppression. Many have experienced suppression in this life. A natural response of the ego is to automatically oppose authority. It's easy to understand this inclination, as all souls have an innate desire for freedom. While this response can be useful, any automatic response must be examined. We should exercise discrimination in our view of the world and in our responses.

If we are disciples of a Guru, or are actively working with God, opposing authority won't work in the spiritual arena. In this case, the authority is working to free us! Our best hope for freedom is to accept this authority, to tune in and be guided by this higher power.

When attempting to know God's will, it is easy to be deceived by desires and delusions. While each path is individual, we can get guidance from those who have walked before us. Their wisdom and a helping hand can be of immeasurable benefit.


Go with God,
Nityananda

Inspiration from Kriyananda

"The truth is, those who think to go straight to God and Guru, without help from others, have not yet learned the humility necessary to advance much on the path. The wise devotee, rather, knowing how difficult it is at all times to get out of delusion, is eager for any guidance he can get on his journey."
