Positive Attitude: Raising Your Consciousness
November 14, 2016
In this video, Swami Kriyananda talks about the importance of developing and maintaining a positive attitude. He shares anecdotes about his guru (Paramhansa Yogananda) who he says always maintained a positive, uplifted, and charitable disposition.
Kriyananda stresses that the best strategy to follow even in the most challenging of situations, is to be kind and even-minded. He encourages us to have faith in ourselves and strive to raise our level of consciousness through spiritual practice such as Kriya Yoga to secure the energetic support, growth, and protection we need in life. He goes on to explain that the path of yoga is one of practicality because it can help us control the flow of energy and direct it upward to disengage and manage the reactive process and emotional response.
Kriyananda reminds us that we all have periods of darkness and light. He explains that the one thing he has learned in life is to do his very best and live with faith. In doing so, he assures us that we will be able to attract the best and highest and God will bless, support, and sustain us.
