Lesson 24: Make Your Life Potent

By Sri Skanda, Son of Siva

"We will continue our communion from our last meeting, when we started to develop the deeper, inner, higher feelings. This development opens up the intuition, that spark of God-realization which knows all, knows when to act, when to withdraw, when to wait, and knows right from wrong. It triggers within you a feeling that communicates with the brain how to act and tells the brain when, if acted upon, the battle of life within is easily won.

"Each time we meet I give you grace, but you must live up to this gift I bestow. You must learn when to say 'yes' and when to say 'no' to make your life potent, worthwhile, and to become that which you are. No more I need say; you know the rest. Just act out your wisdom and then I can draw near. Learn to feel the command within you of your supreme commander — God. Develop these attributes: to listen and feel.

"Love your own silence, and then Siva you can hear.

"Relax now. Let the mind become still and I will wipe out memories of past misdeeds, the falls from the grace of the Gods.

"I beseech thee to hold firm within, undaunted by any chaos or din outside. Sit firm right now. Pull in. Let the outside pass as a dream as I give forth to thee my essence of purity, freedom and Love. Now feel! Feel like the original Light from which thou wert made. Feel it not above, but right within. I am within thee. Feel me as thy Self. Feel the merging of Truth within. I am with thee in the darkness of the night and brightness of the day. Let doubts, fears fade far away.

"I, Sri Skanda, Son of Siva, have spoken."
