Eternal Life, Eternal Love

Paula Whang-Ramos


"Life is eternal. It goes on with or without our recognition or cooperation.

A human being can recognize this gift and consciously embrace it."

~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian



Yoga teaches us about the One Divine Life that enlivens everything seen and unseen by the physical eyes, known and unknown by the mind, felt and beyond feeling of the physical body. This Life Source is behind and beyond all of our sensory experiences. It is not broken, reduced, degraded or weakened by changes in our minds, bodies and lives. It is the Source of Love that joins us with loved ones separated by physical distance and mortality. Join us this Wednesday at BLC as we experience a meditation created by Paramahansa Yogananda to honor this eternal bond with loved ones who have made their transition. Bring a photo or an item to share into the prayer circle dedicated to the eternal love shared with our beloveds.

 Join us at Blue Lotus Center this week for a time of meditation and prayer in the Eternal Life and love that transcends the physical world. Accept, embrace and let yourself be held in eternal life and love. Learn ancient, time-tested spiritual practices to help us live from our essential wholeness. Study, meditate, and grow with others devoted to thriving in peace, love and wisdom. Make this the year that we affirm and skillfully live in peace - in our minds, our hearts, our families, our community and our world.

Be a Disciple to the Soul's Joy!

Paula Whang-Ramos


"Self-discipline is following the life-enhancing energy of the soul."
~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian


We may have been raised to think of self-discipline as rules that restrict our freedom and creativity. However, in this tradition of Kriya Yoga, self-discipline is a spiritual practice that cultivates greater freedom from the tyranny of the mind and opens us into divine possibility! It is the conscious practice of stepping away from limiting thoughts, words and actions that arise from habits of the mind, and stepping into the soul's call to remember and to live from our essential wholeness. When we live from the soul, we can directly experience the eternal abundance that divinely supports our lives, right here, right now. And from that remembrance, the joy, peace, love and clarity that we all seek is revealed from within.

Join us at Blue Lotus Center this week for Living Peace group and meditation. Explore how to live as a disciple to the soul's joy. Meditate in the deep silence within you. Learn ancient, time-tested spiritual practices to help us live from our essential wholeness. Study, meditate, and grow with others devoted to thriving in peace, love and wisdom. Make this the year that we affirm and skillfully live in peace - in our minds, our hearts, our families, our community and our world.

Divine Possibilities

Paula Whang-Ramos


"When the mind rests in divine consciousness, we are free from worry and despair."
~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian


When we are preoccupied with worry and despair, it is easy to forget that we chose, consciously or unconsciously, to dwell in these negative states of mind. Instead, we can remember our power of choice, and choose again. Again and again, we can redirect our attention and awareness into the indwelling, unshakable peace and wisdom that is uncompromised by our states of mind and life circumstances. When we view life from our essential peace and wisdom, then divine possibilities can be heard by us - to inspire and guide us through the blessings and the rough edges in our lives.

Meditate with us at Blue Lotus Center. Learn how to redirect the mind from worry and despair into divine consciousness. Open into divine wisdom guiding you back into the indwelling tranquility and peace that wait to be lived through you. Learn ancient, time-tested spiritual practices to help us live from our essential wholeness. Study, meditate, and grow with others devoted to thriving in peace, love and wisdom. Make this the year that we affirm and skillfully live in peace - in our minds, our hearts, our families, our community and our world.

Listen To Inner Guidance

Paula Whang-Ramos


"We most often ask: What can I do?  Let us ask a new question: How can I love?"
~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian


Recently during meditation, I heard the inner message, "It doesn't matter if you get the right answer, when you are asking the wrong question." I loved this inner guidance! It called me to question how much vital force I spend completing tasks and engaging in conversations that do not cultivate the unshakable peace and love that I want in my daily life. Now, I use this inner guidance to check in throughout the day, to be sure that I am living into the deeper questions that feed my soul, cultivate peace, and awaken my inner courage and wisdom to walk through daily challenges in Wholeness and Love.

Join us at Blue Lotus Center and meditate in the deep silence within you. Open into divine wisdom guiding you back into the Love that you deserve to live and to share. Learn ancient, time-tested spiritual practices to help us live from our essential wholeness. Study, meditate, and grow with others devoted to thriving in peace, love and wisdom. Make this the year that we affirm and skillfully live in peace - in our minds, our hearts, our families, our community and our world.

Live Your Magnificent Life

Paula Whang-Ramos


"To live a magnificent life, cultivate a mind of wisdom, a heart of devotion, and hands of service."
~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian


 I love this inspiration for what it says, and for what it does not say. For example, it does not say that we need to earn, grow, negotiate or develop a magnificent life. Instead, we are called to live the magnificent life that we already have, right here and right now. How do we more fully recognize and occupy these magnificent lives? This inspiration guides us:

to practice meditation to quiet the mind so we can hear the still small Voice of wisdom within;
to study our true spiritual nature and sacred scripture so we can live from the One Divine Heart of Wholeness that enlivens us all; and
to live and serve from the overflow of inner peace, love and wisdom that naturally arises from with a magnificently realized life.

Our deep listening within, steadfast devotion to our True Selves, and lives lived from the overflow of inner peace can provide the inner courage, clarity and compassion we deserve as we walk through all of our magnificent life experiences, including those that may scare us a little.

Meditate with us at Blue Lotus Center. Join us and realize the magnificent life waiting to be lived from within you now! Learn ancient, time-tested spiritual practices to help us live from our essential wholeness. Study, meditate, and grow with others devoted to thriving in peace, love and wisdom. Make this the year that we affirm and skillfully live in peace - in our minds, our hearts, our families, our community and our world.
