Joy Is Within You ~ Live Like Yogananda, Class 15
April 27, 2021
Ananda is the bliss of God, a quality that Yogananda purely emulated, and while bliss is the inherent nature of each one of us, it has gotten blocked and covered over. Synapses in our brains, based on past experiences and vrittis, start firing from ideas and situations; these then trigger and create a whole reality, emotions, and thoughts—which cloud our awareness and often block our joy. To experience our natural state of bliss, we need to remove those things that keep us from experiencing it and keep limiting conditions out of our consciousness. Will power helps us to push out the darkness and expand the light within.
