What’s Your Story

Stories are powerful agents of change. The great language philosopher Ivan Illich said for example, “Neither revolution nor reformation can ultimately change a society. Rather you must tell a new powerful tale, one so persuasive that it sweeps away the old myths and becomes the preferred story, one so inclusive that it gathers all the […]

Moving Forward

Bhagavad Gita Says: “One who does good is never overcome by evil.” In the Bible we read, “There may may be weeping in the night, but joy comes in the morning” Nothing that happens to you is a surprise to Krishna. He knows the past, from the present, to the future. He has the restoration, […]

Master Your Moods

Strive for stability, consistency, being the same day in & day out. We all have emotions, feelings, but we need to learn to manage them. Would you agree with me that too many people today live by how they feel. It’s like living on a roller coaster, up when circumstances are good, and down when […]

Uncomfortable Situations

We all face situations that are uncomfortable. We’re not getting our way, dealing w a person hard to get along with, late for an appointment & caught in traffic. As much as we don’t like it, Krishna allows uncomfortable situations. When we are put under pressure, it shows what we are made of.

Igniting Your Enthusiasm

Today, we’d like to talk to you about igniting your enthusiasm. The word enthusiasm comes from Theia which is a Greek word for God. It’s one of the reasons why we chant, Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. Because it fills us up with a […]

Hoping Against Hope

A lot of life is about waiting: waiting to meet the right person, waiting for problem to be solved, waiting for dream to come to pass. There is a right way to wait & wrong way to wait. We hear that word & most of the time we think waiting means doing nothing, being passive, […]

When a Door Slams in Your Face

Now there is a difference between when a door slams in your face and when a door is just closed. When it’s closed, you have no expectations. But a door that slammed in your face was open, and you thought you could go through it to a whole new world of opportunities. But then, it […]

Enjoy the Journey

Let’s not get SO goal oriented that we overlook the simple joys of life. Once we overcome one challenge, accomplish one goal, climb one mountain, there will always be another. Our time on mountain tops will be relatively brief. The high times are few & far between: graduation, marriage, child birth. Learn to enjoy the […]

Speak to Your Mountains

You prayed, hoped, believed. Need to do more – You need to SPEAK to the mountains. Say, “Mountain Be removed.” You are Not asking, not begging, not saying ‘pretty please.’ You are COMMANDING that fear, that sickness to STOP impeding your march and the march of your loved ones back home back to godhead. I’ve […]

Confront It, Control It

Many times it’s uncomfortable to make the right decision. We have to suffer thru that period of not getting our way. When Krishna asks us to do something hard: walk away from a friend who is polluting us, be more disciplined in what we watch, control our temper. He’s never trying to take something from […]
