Words Are Like Seeds

But too many people go around uttering dire predictions over themselves. “I never get the breaks.” I’ll probably get laid off. I’m just average. I’m a C student.

Sunshine on a Cloudy Day 2024

What was that? Sunshine on a cloudy day. He didn’t see it coming. The forecast was cloudy. All the reports said this problem is permanent, but KRISHNA controls the universe.

It’s All Good

Krishna can see the big picture for our lives. He’ll close doors that we prayed would open because He knows it’s going to be a waste of time. When you’re mature, instead of getting bitter when things don’t work out, you’ll say, Krishna, I TRUST you. I may not like it, but I believe You […]

Persons of Integrity

Your reputation is one of the most valuable things you have. It is said, “A GOOD NAME is worth more than great riches”. You can have great wealth and be looked DOWN on, seen as shady, but when you’re a person of integrity, people look at you and think, “I CAN TRUST THEM. They always […]

Stepping Out In Faith

Krishna had all that and more planned for us since the beginning of time. He had the steppingstones all lined up before we were born. We simply had to take our TINY STEPS OF FAITH before our dreams became reality. In a purport to the BG 11/34 Prabhupada says, “The plans of the SPOG are […]

What Goes In Comes Out

Am I going to be a buzzard & stay on the ground, eat dead things, or am I going to be a swam & soar. If I’m going to be a swami, I cannot hang around with crows. Everyone would like to soar but not willing to give up dead flesh, gossip, unwholesome things. If […]

Take the Pressure Off

So much of our daily discontent comes from the fact that most of us are MORE AWARE OF OUR WEAKNESSES than our STRENGTHS, more aware of our FAILURES than our SUCCESSES, MORE AWARE OF OUR LIMITATIONS than our GIFTS. I can’t tell you how many problems that causes!

Coming Up Higher
