Words of Wisdom by Sri Yukteshwar

Standard

 Sri Yukteshwar, Yogananda's Guru


Sri Yukteshwar, Yogananda’s Guru

“All creation is governed by law. The principles that operate in the outer universe, discovered by scientists, are called natural laws. But there are subtler laws that rule the hidden spiritual plains and the inner realm of consciousness; these principles are knowable through the science of yoga. It is not the physicists but the Self-realized Master that comprehends the true nature of matter. By such knowledge, Christ was able to restore the servants ear after it had been severed by one of the disciples.
 
The body is a treacherous friend. Give it its due; no more. Pain and pleasure are transitory; endure all dualities with calmness, trying at the same time to remove yourself beyond their power. Imagination is the door through which disease as well as healing enters. Disbelieve in the reality of sickness even when you are ill; an unrecognized visitor will flee!
 
Physicians should carry on their work of healing through God’s laws as applied to matter. But Wisdom is the greatest cleanser. Those who have studied physiology should go further and investigate the science of the soul. A subtle spiritual structure is hidden just behind the bodily mechanism.”
