Post-Yolanda Post

I think I have already said in my past entries what I think and believe about climate change and environmental issues in general. Now, lost for words with what Yolanda has done to our country.  Now, actions count much more than words.

From Notes by Sri Swami Satchidananda:

When you pray, you send out healing vibrations and good thoughts into the cosmos. They circulate there. If you pray for a particular individual, no matter where that individual is, your thought forms go there and reach that person. The person may not even know that you are praying for his or her welfare, but will be able to receive it and be helped. Sometimes your prayers are universal. In that case, those who have an open sail will catch it.

When others know that so many people are praying for them, it will give them comfort. And even if some people do not want your prayer, you can still pray. By praying for others, you get the benefit yourself, because you are opening up your own heart. You are showing your compassionate side. Your mind gets purified when you pray for others. You become a better person. Through your prayer you are expressing your faith in God.

In numerous ways, prayer certainly helps. It is a powerful, powerful practice. Many, many things can happen by prayer. Radical minds may not accept or understand it. But a sincere prayer that comes from a faithful heart can perform miracles. So have that faith. Pray for yourself, pray for others.

Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi.

Help AND pray.
