I do not expect anything from others, so their actions cannot be in opposition to wishes of mine.
- Sri Sri Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri “Autobiography of a Yogi”
One answer will cover all your questions: Turn to God and fill your consciousness with the realization of His perfection. Let your weakness be dissolved in the worshipful thought of His strength. It is not necessary to explain things to God, for He knoweth your need before you speak, and is more ready to give than you are to ask. When you meditate, turn away from everything except the one absorbing thought of His overshadowing Presence. In this way you will become receptive, and healing will flow through body, mind, and soul.
- Sri Gyanamata
“God Alone: The Life and Letters of a Saint”
This world will always have some defects…Though Jesus could perform miracles of feeding five thousand with a few fish and loaves of bread, and even raising the dead, still he had to suffer for doing good…We should not expect perfection from ever-changing material conditions, but realize that it is the Father alone who can give lasting happiness. —
Paramahansa Yogananda, God-Communion Man’s Greatest Necessity, Self-Realization Magazine, Winter 2007
“As Christ resurrected his consciousness from the sepulcher of mortal limitations, so must you learn to resurrect your mind by meditation from the tomb of material desires and body-confinement to the consciousness of omnipresence.
Resurrect your calmness from beneath the soil of restlessness; resurrect your wisdom from the enshrouding earthliness of ignorance; resurrect your love from beneath the sod of mundane human attachment − with its limited love for family, society, and country − to divine love for all.
As Jesus withdrew his mind from the body by ecstasy and united it with all-pervading Spirit, so through the consciousness of Christ developed within yourself by constant meditation unite your soul with omniscient Spirit, your life with Eternal Life. “
