Thanks, Steve.

The quote you named also ends with:

"Everything in future will improve if you are making a spiritual effort now.

These are my favorite words of wisdom from Sri Yukteswar

Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan

The spiritual path is easiest if there is not something pulling one from behind; and that force is the life in the world, one's friends, surroundings, acquaintances, and one's foes. Remain, therefore, in the world as a traveler making a station on his way. Do all the good you can to serve and succor humanity, but escape attachment. By this in no way will you prove to be loveless. On the contrary, it is attachment which divides love, and love raised above attachment is like a rain from above nourishing all the plants upon the earth.

   ~~~ "Sangita I, Nasihat", by Hazrat Inayat Khan (unpublished)

This dream happened earlier in the morning. It was like a movie. I watched someone who was laying down in horror saying, "They don't know what they're in for." The scene was then on what looked like a group of people in a cold building and they were organizing human limbs. I remember there being a lot of blood on the floor and all over their clothes. They were forced to work down there. There were limbs in opened plastic containers and even coming out on a conveyor belt, maily severed legs with the feet still in tact. I don't remember feeling much but noticed the people looked disturbed. Before I left or, woke up, I saw one of the workers hold up a severed leg and it zoomed in on the word mutAny(i think it was misspelled like that) etched in the ankle.

A couple days ago I noticed a dead butterfly while walking up to my apartment, looked like someone stepped on him. Yesterday I saw a single wing of a butterfly in my parking spot at work as I was getting out of the car.
I'm wondering what the chances are if I spot another dead butterfly today.

"The Barracuda is a predator by nature and reaches a size of almost two meters in length and thirty centimeters in width. The Barracuda likes to stay motionless under the cover of weeds on the seabed and attacks its prey when it comes within striking distance from the weeds where it is hiding. The ambush is very sudden, very fast, very vicious and very powerful and is over in the blink of an eye.

The symbolism of the Barracuda teaches you that you have a tendency of challenging your inner emotions and you possess a fierce urge to hit out at people which may ultimately cause more harm than good to your mental, spiritual and emotional growth. The symbolism cautions you to keep a check on your emotional outbursts so that you can lead a more controlled and better way of life."

Had a dream that i had a scar just below my stomach. A friend said that if it was long and stretched across the region it was a barracuda;

General Meanings:

The wild or predatory aspect of your emotional nature, demanding feelings, emotions that need to be expressed.

Psychological Meanings:

Fierce ability to resolve emotional troubles, also aggressive acts which are harmful to the spiritual growth.

Thank-You YoginiMoon

I always enjoyed and read with interest sri yukteswar's explanations of the yugas. He seems to have an understanding of the grand cycles of history and an explanation for great civilizations of the past that far surpasses common historian, archeological and evolutionary explanations for our earths unfoldment and the spiritual evolution of human beings. If we can accept his insights we are also accepting that we are much further along in spiritual understanding then most all of the population on this earth and we are in a position of helping others understand their lives and purpose here on earth in our present dwapara yuga. Many of us who are meditating do not fully comprehend our purpose and mission on this earth. However;  thru understanding our selves and experiences in meditation we become more confident of our purpose and its significance to the people and times we live in. We are an example of what this world will be in the future and we are here to help in that glimpse of the future of human evolution. When we extract ourselves from the conditioning of these times we live in and expose ourselves to friends and masters who have gained such spiritual understanding we are actually bringing those higher times into the present which is our purpose. While we share karma with those around us....some of us actually came here to help in that process of lifes purpose and exemplify the future of life here on this planet.

 I especially liked this quote. It helps me work on the present:

Forget the past. The vanished lives of all men are dark with many shames. Human conduct is ever unreliable until man is anchored in the Divine.

Hello to all.

I'm very glad to have found this forum!

I discovered Yogananda in the early 1970s.  My oldest brother, whom I see as my first guru, was a member of the SRF, practiced hatha yoga and vegetarianism.  He was the one who introduced me to yoga and meditation.  I've practiced hatha yoga and meditation and been vegetarian for decades.

I hope it does not offend anyone that I did not receive kriya initiation from the SRF.  I received my initiation from Roy Davis.  I felt attuned to his approach and am glad to have received kriya from him.  I have books by spiritual teachers of other kriya yoga paths as well (Swami Hariharananda, and some books from Yoga Niketan, whose authors were disciples of Sri Yukteswar and Swami Satyananda).  I have gotten a great deal of insight from masters of other yogic paths, like Swami Satchidananda, particularly his translation/interpretation of the Gita and the Yoga Sutras.

Of the kriya yoga gurus, Sri Yukteswar stole my heart from the first time I read the Autobiography of a Yogi.  Yes, even more than Yogananda himself!  But I revere all of the gurus of this tradition, of course.  I have Sri Yukteswarji's "Holy Science" and a couple of biographies of him.  Here is a wonderful publication on the 150th anniversary of his birth, put out by the YSS in India: https://yoganandasite.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/sriyukteswar.pdf

Again, hello to all of you, and I am thankful for the presence of this forum.

Biden does not speak on behalf of the people. What a disgrace that one would put any such faith in another flawed human being meanwhile, we sacrifice our freedoms to remain addicted... what's new?? Is that racism I smell??  Shocked  Roll Eyes

Here we are, battling out morality... Just as many religions have before... and just like those religions we have those equally flawed individuals(Biden included) pursuing greedy agenda in guise of ethic and morality.
