3 Tips for Deepening Your Divine Connection

1.  At the end of meditation, focus for a few minutes on the quality of joy—the joy of your own being that is not conditioned by any outward circumstances. Feel strong and complete in yourself.
2.  During the day, when you feel challenged, touch your right index finger to the point between the eyebrows, the seat of higher consciousness, solutions, and joy.
3.  Try to see some good quality in everyone.
