Via Sri Prem Baba

“How to go beyond fear to create a new, happier and more prosperous reality? We all receive instructions on how to do this. The instructions come from the higher planes and manifest themselves in various ways; through intuition, from insights, dreams, and even through knowledge and intellect. However, I have seen many avoiding this information. Some pretend that they don’t see or hear what they are receiving and put the instructions aside. Thus, they wind up closing the channel of connection with higher intelligence. When we don’t put into movement that which we receive, we close the channel and stop receiving. But when we put the guidance we receive into practice, each time we receive even more. We are filled with the Holy Spirit and our trust grows to such an extent that any vestige of fear disappears.”
Sri Prem Baba

Via Daily Dharma / Investigating Ourselves

Rather than accusing others of being the source of our misfortune, we need to investigate our situation well and see that we are being slain by the weapons we created through the force of our own self-grasping ignorance and the afflictions it nourishes.
