How Do I Find Direction in My Life?


How to find my Family and begin my life in the positive path? Where is the Love of my Life?

—Luisa, Spain


Dear Luisa,

I am guessing you might be a young person nearing or just entering adulthood who is seeking to live life from higher consciousness and looking for spiritual guidance. Since you have addressed your question to representatives of Ananda you might enjoy reading the autobiographies of our guru Paramhansa Yogananda and our founder, spiritual guide, and direct disciple of Yogananda, Swami Kriyananda. In both autobiographies they share their personal stories of growing up, struggling with these questions and finding spiritual answers. You can read both of these books online at our website for free at these links: Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda and The New Path by Swami Kriyananda. Autobiography of a Yogi is also available to read for free in Spanish here. These books are available in print form in Spanish and may be available at an online bookseller in your country.

I encourage you to learn to meditate. Meditation is a powerful tool for accessing higher consciousness, and the peace you find in meditation will change your life. When you live your life from higher consciousness you will draw guidance about how to live in the most positive way. You will attract opportunities for your relationships and work to express God’s loving presence. We offer online courses in Spanish at

Many blessings to you,
Nayaswami Mukti
