Shine the Holy Light Within You!

Paula Whang-Ramos


"There is a power that will light your way to health, happiness, peace, and success, if you will but turn toward that light."
~ Paramahansa Yogananda



Holy Day blessings to all!

Amidst our busy daily activities during this time of year, the recent very chilly weather calls us inside where we can find comfort resting with a warm cup of tea. In divine Wholeness, it is as if Mother Nature is reminding us of the importance to turn within to find that which we truly seek. The realization of our eternal wholeness, happiness, peace, and prosperity can be directly experienced right here, right now - even if we were unable to find that "perfect gift" for someone and our shopping is not finished and our cooking is not done and our homes are not fully decorated.

The inward turning in our meditation practice opens us into our indwelling wholeness, happiness, peace, and prosperity. And, the more we meditate, the more these divine qualities overflow from within us. During this holy and busy time, it is my prayer that we all allow ourselves to turn into the divine light that indwells all beings from all backgrounds, and that we joyfully, generously share our overflowing inner lights of unconditional love and peace with all life. 

To support our wholeness consciousness during this holy season, join us at CSE and BLC for ongoing gatherings this week. Take time from your busy schedule and keep your divine appointment and commune in your divine inner light!

Return to peace. Join us at Blue Lotus Center and affirm the inner call to cultivate peace in our minds, hearts, families, community and our world. The Blue Lotus Meditation & Yoga Center welcomes sincere seekers from all backgrounds. Beginning and experienced participants from all traditions are welcome at all gatherings.

Silent Nights, Holy Nights

Paula Whang-Ramos


"Silent night, holy night. All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon virgin, mother and child, holy infant, so tender and mild.
Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace." 

~ Franz Xaver Gruber & Joseph Mohr, 1818


The energy of this well-loved Christmas song reminds me of the divine power and presence that can be directly experienced in the holy silence of meditation.

  • Silent night, holy night  To experience the wholeness of the indwelling Divine within, we must sit in the stillness of meditation. With closed eyes we watch and wait, inwardly looking and listening into the unbounded darkness within.
  • All is calm, all is bright  When we rest in divine inner Wholeness, we realize that all of our authentic needs are already met, all of our highest dreams are already supported into being, and we can rest in the optimism of Wholeness expressing Itself through our lives.
  • Round yon virgin, mother and child  In the inner wisdom revealed in meditation, we can realize that which the mind cannot conceive. Divine potential waits to be expressed through us, as us. 
  • Holy infant, so tender and mild.The realization of our highest dreams arises from our love, patience and compassion, not from our active doing or attempts to control worldly outcomes in our lives.
  • Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace. As we rest, restore and remember our divine wholeness in meditation, we experience the holy peace that always indwells us and every situation in our lives.


 As we live into this holy time of year that is honored in wisdom traditions around the world, may we open into the subtle and obvious ways in which eternal peace, unconditional love, and divine wholeness wait to be realized by us. In holy day songs, in daily conversations, in conscious acts of kindness - the holy One in all expresses Its unshakable joy and gratitude. Rejoice and enjoy!

 Return to peace. Join us at Blue Lotus Center. Return, rest and live in the divine peace, love and wisdom that indwells you. Learn and experience universal spiritual Self-care practices to return to peace now. Affirm the inner call to cultivate peace in our minds, hearts, families, community and our world. The Blue Lotus Meditation & Yoga Center welcomes sincere seekers from all backgrounds. Beginning and experienced participants from all traditions are welcome at all gatherings.

Experience Where Heaven Meets Earth

Paula Whang-Ramos


"We are the meeting place of heaven and earth through our ability to be receptive to divine ideas and bring them into manifestation."
~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian


What a powerful and creative expression of Life we are! Ancient Yogic teachings say that we are a combination of Spirit and nature. Our spiritual core inspires our divine ideas. Our minds and earth bodies can help realize these divine inspirations. Our daily meditation and spiritual practice provides ancient time-tested pathways for us to live in the peace, love and wholeness that naturally arises from living this wisdom guided life.

 During this holy day season, may we open into this precious gift - the realization of essential wholeness that infuses our lives and all life. Consciously living in and from this spiritual truth can free the mind from limited thinking and emotional reactivity, as the heart opens into the divine possibility of a life, country and world of peace, love and gratitude.

 Join us this Wednesday evening for Meditation for the Holy Days, when we will dive deeply into the divine meeting place within us all. Rest and be restored in the silence of your own soul. Meditators of all levels will benefit from this opportunity of extended periods of meditative silence with supportive inspirational teachings on how we can directly experience our divine existence where heaven and earth unite. Beginning and experienced meditators are welcome to join us for part or all of the evening.

 Return to peace. Join us at Blue Lotus Center. Return, rest and live in the divine peace, love and wisdom that indwells you. Learn and experience universal spiritual Self-care practices to return to peace now. Affirm the inner call to cultivate peace in our minds, hearts, families, community and our world. The Blue Lotus Meditation & Yoga Center welcomes sincere seekers from all backgrounds. Beginning and experienced participants from all traditions are welcome at all gatherings.
