Krishnadas teaching Experiments in Higher Consciousness

"Practice the art of silence. The tigers of worries, sickness, and death are running after you,and the only place you can be safe is in silence. The more you are silent, the more you will find happiness. Those who meditate deeply feel a wonderful silence....What you learn in meditation, practice in activitiy and conversation, and let no one dislodge your calmness. Hold on to your peace." - Paramhansa Yogananda

3 Tips for Experiencing Higher Consciousness at Home

1. Turn off the phone, computer, and other distractions—even cover or hide them, and determine that for one day you will focus on your own inner silence.
2. Take a walk in nature while repeating an uplifting affirmation or prayer.
3. Sit for a while and practice a technique to help you focus your mind. Determine not to stop just because you feel restless at first. Sit just a little longer and a little longer, letting your restlessness have time to settle out, and the inner peace of your soul to shine through.
