"I am not bound by this body. Someday when my body will be no more, I shall be happy to watch you from Spirit. I shall see how you are growing spiritually, and how the work of the Gurus is unfolding. I am the ever-living Spirit, undying, and I shall be watching over you with a million eyes."

--Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda (From 'Only Love', p153)

To my friends,

To my friends, in all lands and all worlds, greetings and good will! Wherever you are, whoever you are, of whatever color, race or creed, I send you my love and the pledge of my loyalty. You, who for thousands of years, or only for a day, have worked and fought for justice, freedom and Truth, receive my gratitude and devotion.

You who dwell in palaces or hovels, in cities or jungles, in mansions or dungeons - if in your hearts there is the urge towards higher, better living and loftier ideals, believe me when I say I am your friend and that I count you blessed friends of mine.
Many of you I have known in the past, and some of you I have never seen, but I think that in God's appointed time I shall meet each one of you face to face and give you proof of my affection. However, it matters little that we are not together now, nor does it matter that time and space may separate us by almost infinite distances. The only thing that counts is that we are friends working together in a common cause, the cause of righteousness and the expansion of the consciousness of the children of the Most High.

Although I see you not, I often feel your presence near, or thrill with the noble thoughts which you send out to find their home in the minds attuned to yours. Although you may never read the words which I am penning now, I declare to you that you shall feel the vibrations of tenderness and kindliness which emanate from me to all of you.

Our work, our love, our purposes are One. March on, dear friends, to higher, brighter goals! Continue in your dreams of happier days and in your deeds of service to your kind. Protect the torch of faith from winds of doubt, and let no storm disturb your peace of mind. Farewell, dear friends of mine, until we meet.

Sri Yogananda

"Socialism, consisting of evolved individuals, will prevail in the end. But as long as people are not highly evolved, individualism will keep coming to the surface. Individualism only exists for the ushering in of spiritual socialism in which evolved souls will live for the greatest good of the greatest number."

~Paramahansa Yogananda

i found this quote in an old East-West Magazine i have from February 1934 It is an interview with Paramahansa Yogananda

These are the words before and after the quote- so it can be seen in context:

"Great individuals are sent on earth as a pattern after which ordinary members of society must model themselves.

Socialism, consisting of evolved individuals, will prevail in the end. But as long as people are not highly evolved, individualism will keep coming to the surface. Individualism only exists for the ushering in of spiritual socialism in which evolved souls will live for the greatest good of the greatest number."

Question: Does the rise , in recent years, of dictatorships as forms of government indicate the failure and ultimate doom of Democracy?

Answer: "A society of morons and unthinking people will never establish a real Democracy. The average man cannot think clearly, but is ruled by explosions of his emotions, He needs the Master mind of  a Dictator in order to think right and do right. When the mass of people in a nation are qualitively and uniformly educated, they will form the Democracy of universal wisdom and agreement, and will then be able to govern themselves spontaneously by the universal law of truth. Then dictators will be unnecessary.

One real wise Dictator, like President Roosevelt, is better then too many cooks of small dictators and politicians, who spoil the broth. Much is discussed and nothing accomplished with many ..... Democracy will never fail; it is the growing life of nations, which will mature through the trials of republicanism, dictatorships, capitalism, and any other "isms" which are necessary for its growth."

Paramahansa Yogananda

Steve, that's the same article where he praises Mussolini, who was qa convinced socialist at the beginning but remained in his heart so. Mussolini was expunged from the socialist party and started to found his fascist party.

Amma has said that if you see difficult karma that other people have consider it your karma to help them. It is a spiritual law that unless we are compassionate towards others we can not expect to expand our own consciousness and we will be limited in our own circumstances and life.

True Socialism and greed for power are contradictions.  People are often complicated mccoy. Not all good. Not all bad. I'm guessing that it is easy to let power get to your head. Is that what happened to a 'great thinker' like Mussolini who was expunged from the socialist party? Great thinking does not seem to be enough if it is not tempered with spiritual wisdom. Apparently he was praised by Yogananda for being a 'great thinker'. It may be difficult to know what choices an individual will make. Even a Master may not entirely know as we also saw in the decision Jesus made in making Judas his disciple.

The study is interesting especially since you are from Italy. We have many people who rose to power here in the states who also let it get to their head. The list is too long to elaborate.

On  a different note that nevertheless has a tenuous connection>>> The Master recommends almonds with orange juice and a little honey to strengthen  brain power. However I doubt that he should take responsibility for the decisions one makes with this new found power. Perhaps I am wrong but it seems as though free will seems to be one thing that Master's themselves cannot even always predict with 100% accuracy.
