Krishna Is The Miracle

We all want something special to happen to us, in our lives. We'd love to have some kind of miracle occur.
We're looking for that one amazing relationship, the one that's going to give us everything we've been looking for, and bring peace to our hearts.
We're looking for that really special job, the one that fills all our needs, and uses all our creative talents, while also providing us with enough money to give us prosperity.

Familiarity Breeds Contempt

Familiarity Breeds Contempt
This is an old saying that means:

The more we know someone the more likely we are to find fault with them.

Srila Prabhupad used this saying and warned us about it.
Sometimes we are very fortunate and we get some very nice association with devotees.
We begin to feel comfortable with them, close to them, and we start to get to know them a little better.
At that point in time we have to begin to remind ourselves of this principle...

Familiarity Breeds Contempt.

What's a "Free Spirit" ???

Hare Krishna. :)

This week I had an interesting comment from someone about being a Free Spirit.

I was told by this person, that them, a friend of ours, and I, all got along very well because we were all "free spirits"....

Now, this really was funny to me, because I don't have any idea what they mean when they say "free spirit".

So, I told them:
"Well, thank you. I'm so glad that we all get along so well" :)
"Now, will you please tell me, what is a free spirit" ???
"What do you mean when you say "free spirit" ???????

On his Deathbed of Arrows Bhishmadeva Consoles Emperor Yudhisthira with Spiritual Insight

Bhishma instructs Yudhisthira
Although Bhagavad-gita is one of our essential texts and is glorified as having what is necessary for us to make spiritual progress, it is also considered the ABC’s. Our founder/acharya or principle teacher’s— Shrila Prabhupada’s—purports add references from many relevant Gaudiya Vaishnava and Vedic texts which greatly increase its depth and accessibility. However, objectively, in our tradition, the Shrimad Bhagavatam would be considered a more developed scripture, since it begins where the Gita leaves off—with giving up all works or material dharmas except pure devotional service to Krishna.

Counteracting The Power of Negative Thinking with Prayer and Appreciation

(this blog is recorded on the full page: quick time player needed)
Negative Energy Fields

A big part of life is learning to be curious about what its purpose is and how it works. Now scientists might agree with this statement, but they generally only accept a mechanistic, non-spiritual perspective. Those with a spiritual orientation to life study about and try to act on the fact that we are souls having a human experience. This view changes everything, as does our understanding about the dual purpose of the laws of the Universe. These two main purposes illustrate that we are given freedom from our Source (Shri Krishna for us Gaudiya Vaishnavas) to choose what is in our best spiritual interest, or to strive for temporary happiness based on the illusion that we are only physical bodies meant to struggle for existence.
