      Dear Friends,

      The potential to realize the Truth is present in every person. In
      some it remains dormant, while in others it is awakened. The more one
      directs one's awareness toward the Divine Force, the more one
      realizes the emptiness of the objects of the world. That realization
      helps one to withdraw one's mind from the external world, and to
      compose oneself for inner exploration.

      All sadhanas, all practices, are meant to purify and strengthen the
      mind that disturbs your being and prevents you from being aware of
      the Reality that is within you.

      To be spiritual means to be aware of the Reality all the time, to be
      aware of the Absolute Truth all the time, and to be aware of the Lord
      within you all the time.*

      In loving service,

      Swami J
