In writing, try as much as possible to avoid repeating too closely even such essential words as and, of, the, and a.

Interchange these last two from time to time.

Try to avoid too close a juxtaposition of words that end similarly — words, for example, that end in “-ly,” “-ity,” or “-tion.” If you do repeat similar sounds, do so deliberately, for effect.

Remember, of course, that every rule can be broken sometimes, depending on the kind of interest you want to awaken. Even speed readers, however, will prefer a flow that is enhanced by right word-sequences.

Jaya1_smParamhansa Yogananda once said, “While prayer and meditation are good and we should practice, we must not forget that the purpose of meditation is to receive this Holy Ghost that is the tangible expression of God, and the sound is the easiest way to approach God…… No one, if he doesn’t know the Aum vibration, can get there. That is all there is to it!”

God comes as peace, or as love and sometimes as bliss but He especially comes as the sacred sound of Aum. Immersing ourselves in that cosmic stream is the true, inner baptism of which immersion in water is but a symbol. By following the enchanting sound, the inner kingdom of Spirit behind the restless mind and senses is revealed…(read more of this post…)

This Week’s “A Touch of Light” Blogpost from Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi

Nayaswami Devi’s article, “The Economy of God”

Devi_smThe elderly nun quietly entered the refectory of the convent. Clasping her hands together and looking heavenward, she exclaimed, “Ah, the economy of God! If there are three people in a room, they are all teaching each other a lesson.” A friend who was at the convent just then on retreat shared this story with me.

I’ve often thought about the wisdom in that nun’s words. Everyone in our lives—whether the loving friend or the challenging neighbor—is there for a purpose…(read more of this post and sign up to receive these…)
