Connecting With Divine Guidance

Paula Whang-Ramos


"Divine guidance is always just behind our thoughts and actions.  It is the still small voice of conscience or intuition that arises within us.

It is constant—sometimes hardly noticeable, other times arising again and again until it is heard. But, will we heed it?"
~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian


When we feel stressed or confused, we may think that divine guidance is hiding from us. The truth is that It is ever-present within us. It never left us. The more important question is: Where are we? When we are preoccupied with distress or frustration, we are actually increasing our stress level by feeding those agitating states of mind with our own attention and awareness. Instead, we can choose, again and again, to stop talking, moving and reacting. We can choose to sit in the silence of meditation, where the reactive mind becomes quiet. From this stillness and inner peace, divine wisdom is revealed as inspiration, insight, and possibility. And we can choose to follow this divine light of hope as our inner path from frustration into freedom.

Love Extravagantly Anyway

Paula Whang-Ramos


"Grow up and show up."
~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian


When uncontrollable change occurs in our lives, we may feel powerless to respond. But, we are not powerless. Yogacharya O'Brian reminds us that we are spiritual grown-ups, just as divinely empowered from the inside-out as we were before the scary changes began. Intellectually, we may want this to be true. But how do we walk this talk of showing up as spiritually empowered beings? Join us at CSE this morning as we explore how we can transform challenging experiences into divine opportunities, so we can live from the truth of what we are. Join us in spiritual community as we grow up and show up - for ourselves, for our families and for the world.

Deep Listening For Divine Wisdom

Paula Whang-Ramos


"Spiritual maturity requires control of the tongue."
~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian


We are a culture conditioned to express ourselves and to speak up. However, if we are all busy talking then who is really listening...to anyone? The spiritual practice of deep listening offers built-in discernment into the still small voice within, where our authentic truth can be heard. In the silence, we stop trying to direct divine grace, and learn to listen and follow divine wisdom instead. And from this silence, we can offer inspiring words that reflect the wholeness of every being, situation and experience.

Great Souls
Paula Whang-Ramos

"Great souls know nothing of failure.  At every turn of fortune, they see the opportunity to learn."
~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian


I love this inspiration. It reminds us that even great ones experience challenge in their lives. And, yet, they do not allow those losses to define them. Instead, they use unexpected change to mature their own remembrance of their essential wholeness. These great souls remind us that we also have a choice in how we deal with challenge and loss in our lives. Will we follow our emotional reactions into stories of fear, limitation, and "ain't it awful"? Or will be move beyond our reactions into the deeper spaciousness created by the loss, and listen into the opportunity for even greater peace, love and wisdom that awaits us? The truth is that we are all great souls. May we live from the remembrance of this divine truth.
