Today I will open the door of my calmness and let the footsteps of Silence gently enter the temple of all my activities. I will perform all duties serenely, saturated with peace. — Paramahansa Yogananda

We have thought that outside things controlled us, when all the time we have had that within which could have changed everything and given us freedom from bondage. — The Science of Mind

Speed Bumps

Life is like speed bumps. Speed bumps can show up anywhere, sometimes without warning. Sometimes we are warned by a sign and other times these bumps just seen to appear out of nowhere. You know; the kind of speed bumps where you’re going along and everything is going great and then… WHACK! Your chin hits the steering wheel; you bite your tongue. Not only do you find yourself in pain, but you’re left wondering why life has speed bumps.
I recently began to ponder just this question. I questioned why people react so differently to the bumps of life. What was the difference?

Suddenly the answer. . . shock absorbers!

Shock absorbers are our spiritual muscles: treatment, meditation, and affirmations. These all contribute to our ability and strength when the speed bumps of life show up. We get to choose how smooth our ride will be.

Life isn’t out to get us. Things just happen; life is always changing. It is the inner life that absorbs the shocks. Science of Mind principles are our shock absorbers. So when these bumps hit-- and they will-- remember to turn within to the Divine Intelligence and the Presence to know a greater Truth.

Today I open to the peace that lives deep within, I build my consciousness on a Spiritual principles I am strengthening my spiritual shock absorbers, I will ride today in Gods love.
