How to Understand Recent Political Events


Hello beautiful souls, based on the recent election results of the United country and the choice that the country made under the sway of confusion and divisiveness, would this mean that the nation has accrued negative mass karma and that the repercussions of this decision will be felt in more severe natural catastrophes. How can a country as a whole change its mass karma?

Dear friend,

These things, to some extent, will likely remain a mystery to our conscious, rational mind! It’s difficult to determine what is behind these outward movements of energy.

Probably the most important thing for us is to help develop a positive magnetism to offset any negative influences. At Ananda we’re putting a lot of emphasis in repeating on a daily basis, Paramhansa Yogananda’s prayer for peace and harmony:

Lord, Fill this world with peace & harmony, peace & harmony.
(Repeat about 10 times)
Lord, Fill me with peace & harmony, peace & harmony.
(Repeat three times)
Try to do this four or five times every day.

If we all focus our energies and awareness in a magnetic positive way, then it is possible for the Divine consciousness to be more present in the world around us.

Blessings to you on being an instrument for peace and harmony.

Nayaswami Pranaba
