Living in Divine Wholeness

Paula Whang-Ramos


"We apprehend the reality of Consciousness according to our capacity to do so...if we are sincere,

if we turn our attention to higher realities, we open ourselves to the actions of grace which express as awakened,

transformative soul impulses from within and as supportive circumstances in our everyday experience."
Mr. Roy Eugene Davis, The Eternal Way: The Inner Meaning of the Bhagavad Gita (1996) pg. 88



This inspiring passage reminds us that wherever we are, Wholeness is. Whatever we are facing in our lives or in our minds, Divine Grace is here with us. We do not need to make ourselves "perfect" or even better, before we can experience this grace bestowing Presence. We do not need to wait until we have time, or are less stressed, or feel more worthy to live in Divine Wholeness. We only need to be willing to turn our attention and open our awareness, again and again, into the consciousness expanding possibility that right here, right now, in the blessings and blunders of our lives - we are already living in the grace of Divine Wholeness.

The teachings of Kriya Yoga offer practices based in ancient philosophical wisdom to help us learn to stop perpetuating the stories of isolation and unworthiness that can emerge from the mind, and instead turn our attention towards thoughts, words, and actions that serve our higher good. As we learn to expand our awareness into the Divine Wholeness in which we live and breathe and have our being, we can see how this Presence always rises from within and around us to support, guide and inspire us into the peace, love and wisdom that we yearn for and deserve - in this lifetime.

Meditate superconsciously with us at Blue Lotus Center. Awaken, study, and be inspired in a meditative Kriya Yoga community committed to reclaim and to live from the spiritual integrity and wholeness that we all are. Contribute to the realization of peace in our minds, our hearts, our families, our community and our world. Blue Lotus Meditation & Yoga Center welcomes sincere seekers and newcomers from all backgrounds.

Live In the Source Of Happiness

Paula Whang-Ramos


"That one who is content with what comes by providence, who has transcended the dualities (of pleasure and displeasure),

who is free from envy and remains even-minded in success or failure, even though implementing actions, is not in bondage.”
Bhagavad Gita 4:22 ~ Mr. Roy Eugene Davis,
The Eternal Way: The Inner Meaning Of The Bhagavad Gita


Today's Gita reading points to a deeper Source of happiness that is not dependent on our changing opinions, emotions, or even experiences. Instead, this teaching reminds us that we can live in the deeper Source of contentment, when we learn to live consciously in providence or divine grace. When we look and listen from this deeper, unchanging consciousness, then we can even-mindedly live in the world without allowing our lives to be an unending reaction to it.

Instead, we live in Yoga, where we return, again and again, into the Source within and around us, whose providence blesses us in every breath. How do we learn to live in providence, free from bondage of the mind? Join us at Blue Lotus Center as we learn and live these ancient Yogic teachings as a path into this freedom!

Meditate superconsciously with us at Blue Lotus Center. Awaken, study, and be inspired in a meditative community committed to reclaim and to live from the spiritual integrity and wholeness that we all are. Contribute to the realization of peace in our minds, our hearts, our families, our community and our world. Blue Lotus Meditation & Yoga Center welcomes sincere seekers and newcomers from all backgrounds.

Celebrate Peace With BLC This Wednesday!

Paula Whang-Ramos



"Let us encourage one another with spiritual friendship, conversations that are uplifting, and remembrance of our sacred purpose in life."
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian, 08/30/2016



It has been almost 30 years since my husband and I moved to South County. We loved the rural country, the small town, and the slower pace of life. While my earth life was well cared for, my spiritual life was not. I missed the spiritual diversity of the greater Bay Area from where we came. In South County, beautiful spiritual doorways in local houses of worship felt too narrow to fit my own limitless experience of the Divine and welcome my many spiritual friends from diverse spiritual traditions.

And then, in 2005, I walked through the doorway of the Center for Spiritual Enlightenment in San Jose. Fourteen years later, I have yet to find the edges of CSE's spiritual doors, as they open wide to welcome sincere seekers from all and no faith traditions. On November 6, 2014, Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian, Spiritual Director and Founder of CSE, blessed the Blue Lotus Center into being, as an affiliate meditation center of CSE.

For the past 5 years, BLC has served as an oasis of peace that welcomes sincere seekers from all backgrounds. At BLC, we focus on the Oneness that joins us, instead of apparent differences that may divide us. BLC continues to hold a steadfast presence of peace through many challenging acts of nature and humans in our communities and our country. Join us this Wednesday, as we meditate and celebrate BLC's 5 years of service to sincere seekers from all of our beautiful communities. Enjoy a time in spiritual community with others who share a commitment to the sacred Purpose that indwells us all. All are welcome.

Meditate superconsciously with us at Blue Lotus Center. Awaken, study, and be inspired in a meditative community committed to reclaim and to live from the spiritual integrity and wholeness that we all are. Contribute to the realization of peace in our minds, our hearts, our families, our community and our world. Blue Lotus Meditation & Yoga Center welcomes sincere seekers and newcomers from all backgrounds.



 

“If anything disturbs your peace, practice having faith that divine grace is already actively at work restoring wholeness and well-being.

Then make any necessary adjustments in harmony with that insight.”
Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian, Spiritual Director, Center for Spiritual Enlightenment
