Love Serve Meditate Realize

Wednesday, Nov 01, 2017 A Message from Marydale – November 2017


Salutations, One and All!

Joseph Campbell wrote: “If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”

Seven years ago, guided by my internal GPS (God’s Persistent Shakti) system to follow my bliss, I stepped across the threshold between dream and reality and Param Yoga Healing Arts Center was born. A tiny, bright, shining Light on the outskirts of Los Angeles meant to be a refuge from external chaos—a bridge to innate peace, the internal bliss that thrives within each one of us.

It is self-evident that my humble life was the catalyst the universe used to open a pathway, a safe harbor for folks to glimpse the sacredness of yoga. Through this ongoing phenomenon, the ancient avenue of wisdom has been strewn with breadcrumbs for all of us who are hungry for a direct path into the heart of Soul.

On our seventh anniversary, I bow to each and every one of you who have joined me in this eternal dance of Grace, as together we shared our lives with transparency. Param Yoga is a sacred space, a place of pause, reflection, surrender, transformation, wisdom, courage, clarity, encouragement, and community. Whether you have been coming to the studio persistently for years, or come as you can – YOU have, through your love, sustained the space that has become precious for so many, and I thank you from my heart.

Reflecting on this monumental anniversary and the power of the number seven, it’s fun to consider that seven is the number of completeness and perfection (both physical and spiritual). It derives much of its meaning from being tied directly to God’s creation of all things. The quality that makes seven different from all other numbers (symbolically speaking) is that it pursues knowing as opposed to believing.

As we enter into this vibrational match with sacred number seven, let us embrace what we know to be our truth: that we are magnificent Spiritual Beings incarnated here as human beings to create as much love as we can while enjoying this brief ride!

Happy Anniversary, Param Yogis! Thank you for the privilege of serving you and living my bliss in the process. Blessed and grateful, I bow to you.

Love, Love, Love,

“There is no happiness in external objects or in others. Real happiness is within. That is the true nature of the soul. Searching for happiness outside is ego and ignorance. Live a life of contemplation and prayer. Do not be a slave to desire, passion, and expectation. Meditate and be free.”

Paramahamsa Prajnanananda
