These talks gave me understrandings that changed my outlook and my life. One can feel that His source of every word is truly from the Living experience of God's reality. And the energy of divine light and love shines through it.This book deepened my Quietest moments.
Among the many areas dealt with in this book, the author has some serious ideas about world peace and brotherhood,"We have everything necessary in the world today to bring about the millennium........A federation of all religions and all nations is necessary. But such a union will come only when every individual engages in that meditation which leads to direct contact with God". So Yogananda places great importance on the practice of MEDITATION in these talks, as well as how to live life more abundantly inevery way.
His knowledge stands out in practical matters as diet also- here talks in the 20's and 30's he gives us ahead of time the accurate knowledge of proper diet that science has only recently (in the 90's) been verifying from years of research. What was the source of his precise wisdom in all these matters??? Is this what comes from "contact with God"? The author proves the value of his own teaching in this and many other ways. I loved the originality and directness of the authors open and intelligent dealings in such a wide range of subjects...

Take as a first gift, chapter one: How Seekers First Found God. For perhaps the first time in the English we have a clear explanation and follow-up to Christ's puzzling pair of directions: Seek first The Kingdom / The Kingdom of God is within you. Yogananda gives us an unsurpassed overview of thousands of years of yoga experimental scientists studied HOW to "seek the kingdom within:" Here we learn WHY we are instructed to "be still and know that I am God" (PS 46:10) -- because stillness is necessary for us to go deeper (and higher) than sense perception to hear the omnipresent whispering of Spirit to our souls. Because the press of "civilization" urges us to be active and outer-directed, we are strangers to the very qualities that would help us experiences our soul-natures and our souls' yearning to express its divinity.Read more ›
