A Lifetime Commitment ~ The Ananda Way of Life #42

August 16, 2021

One’s personal life circumstances, marriage in particular, need to be carefully considered when taking the Sevaka life commitment. Since these are guidelines rather than rules, deciding intuitively, knowing inwardly, and committing to subtle thinking are essential. Master said not to make too many rules, that they destroy the spirit. Instead we can be receptive and keep our thoughts on that vibration of consciousness we want to live in. We want the vows we take to stretch us, but not so far that it is setting us up for failure. Keep asking then, “What is appropriate?”
