Still in the Game

No matter what life sends our way, our attitude should be “I’m hurting but I’m STILL HERE.” A Friend did me wrong, but I’m STILL HERE. Business is slow, BUT I’M STILL HERE. Didn’t feel like coming to the temple today, but here I am. You gotta have a “made up mind. I’m going to […]

Receiving God’s Gifts

We have heard it said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” But today we affirm, “It is ALSO blessed to RECEIVE.” Every one of us has received something. We don’t have anything to give, EXCEPT as we have received. Every breath of life, every heartbeat, every conscious thought is a gift. Every […]

Being Respectful To Others

Don’t be TOO BUSY for the people supposedly UNDERNEATH YOU. Don’t deny them the time of day. Treat everyone with respect & honor. They are brought Xcross your path for a reason. If you look at the lives of Lord Jesus Christ and Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, some of their most defining moments came when they […]

To Settle or to Stretch

Too many of us settle for “good enough”. My marriage is not what it could be, but at least we are staying together (good enough), don’t like this job, but at least I’m employed (good enough), would love to make “A’s” in school, but I’m not that smart (these “C”s are good enough). Let’s not […]

Underestimated On Purpose

All the facts say “It’s impossible”, but KRISHNA ON PURPOSE will have you underestimated. When it seems the LEAST LIKELY, that’s when He shows up the GREATEST. Don’t get discouraged when you’re underestimated. It’s a setup. KRISHNA put you in that position to show Himself strong. When you defy the odds, everyone will know His […]

The Power of Peace

The enemy would LOVE for you to worry about things that are never going to happen. She would LOVE for you to miss the beauty of this day, because you’re so anxious about tomorrow. Don’t fall into that trap. KRISHNA has not failed you in the past, and he’s not going to fail you now. […]

Avoid Distractions

Krishna is saying to you: your hour has come. If you’re going to reach your highest potential, you have to SET YOUR FACE. You can’t be distracted by things that are keeping you from your purpose. You don’t have time to waste, worried about what people think about you, worried about the economy, worried about […]

Under Construction

In the same way you have to see the things that are messy in yr life, the things you struggle with, the things that seem out of pLace, as simply UNDER CONSTRUCTION It does not mean things are not going to work out. Maybe there’s water in yr the future temple room. There are tools […]

Healing the Heart

Now the question we need to ask ourselves is, “Am I making myself sick? Am I sabotaging my relationships? Am I limiting my potential? Am I holding myself down because my spirit is unhealthy”? Scripture says, “Make sure that no root of bitterness springs forth and defiles you”. It describes bitterness as a root. A […]

Blossom In Adversity

But here’s the key. Just because it’s uncomfortable doesn’t mean it’s not where we’re supposed to be. Krishna uses difficulties to do a work in us. We grow in the tough times. That’s when our character is being developed, and Krishna will not allow a difficulty unless he has a divine purpose for it. If […]

Saved To Serve

This Sunday when priests, pastors, and rabbis look out over their congregations in temples, churches, & synagogues, they see an army of soldiers that need to be on the battlefield, but instead they are asleep in the barracks. We have not been saved to sit in a pew or to soak up scriptural truth. We […]

Pick Your Fights

Ask Yourself. If I engage in this battle, invest my time & energy, trying to straighten someone out, arguing, defending myself, trying to prove that I am right……EVEN IF I WIN THIS BATTLE, what is the prize going to be??? That person who cuts me off in traffic. If I cut him off, get upset […]

Who Is God?

“I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me” BG 10/8

Adding Value To Your Life

“Winners never stop learning. Krishna did not create us to reach one level and then stop. Whether you’re nine or ninety years old, you should constantly be learning, improving your skills, and getting better at what you do.” “You have to take responsibility for your own growth. Growth is not automatic. What steps are you […]

When Fatigue Comes Knocking

On the way to our victory, we will always face the “weariness test.” Tempted to cease and desist in the pursuit of our degree, our health, our marriage, the restoration of our kids. This test never comes At the beginning when we are fresh. Always comes when we are tired & vulnerable.

Victim or Victor? The Choice is Yours.

We are the persons we are today because of the decisions we have made. However, what is equally true is that all of us are the persons we are today because of the decisions we have NOT made. NOT TO DECIDE IS TO DECIDE to be a victim: victim of circumstances, a victim of others, […]

Praise Draws in the Lord

But when you create an atmosphere of PRAISE, when you’re always THANKING KRISHNA for what he’s done, when you get up in the morning, and say, “Lord, THANK YOU that I’m alive today. THANK YOU for my beautiful children. THANK YOU, that goodness and mercy are following me. THANK YOU that I’m surround by your […]

Fearless Through Faith

If we’re pessimistic, it’s using our Faith in Reverse…”I’ll never get the breaks.” That’s a statement of faith. Faith goes to work and makes it happen. Why not use your faith to think, Lord, MY life is in your hands. You are guiding and directing my steps. I’m not expecting defeat, or failure. I’m pumped […]

The Path of The Righteous

KRISHNA saves the BEST FOR NEXT. You may feel like you’re coming to an end. Opportunities are drying up. Doors are closing. Favor is expiring. What used to work is not working. Resources are depleted. You’re having a hard time making ends meet. Maybe you’re running out of strength. You feel weary, drained. You don’t […]

The Spirit Soul

When Lord Krishna found His Friend Arjuna aggrieved over the future deaths of his relatives, and, by extension, his own inevitable death, Krishna gave a two hour course on death, dying and life after death. That course is known as The Bhagavad Gita, the Song of God.
