Live Every Friday 8:00 – 8:30 pm!
The Ananda Monastery has now launched a Webinar series based on Swami Kriyananda’s book: Affirmations for Self-Healing. Please join the Brahmacharis online for a special session on how to apply these affirmations in your life.
What is an Affirmation?
An affirmation is a statement of truth which one aspires to absorb into his life. It has been said that we are what we eat. It would be truer to say, “We are what we think.” For our minds express, and also influence, the reality of what we are far more than our bodies do. Our thoughts even influence, to a great extent, our physical health.
No real progress in life ever comes haphazardly. A sportsman must work hard to master the techniques he needs: throwing a ball, skiing down a difficult slope, jumping the greatest possible distance. And a pianist must work at least as hard to master the movements of his fingers, to play with ease the most intricate musical passages.
Living, too, is an art. Unfortunately, it is one to which most people devote little energy. They take life as it comes, and wonder why things keep going wrong.
Thoughts are things. Words, which are crystallized thoughts, have immeasurable power, especially when we speak them with concentration. The mere thought of fatigue is enough to sap our energy. To strengthen that thought by the words, “I’m exhausted,” gives definition, and therefore added power, to the thought itself.
We are what we think, but we are also far more than what we think consciously. We are the myriad conflicting patterns of feeling, habit, and reaction that we have built up over a lifetime — indeed, over lifetimes — in our subconscious minds. To heal ourselves, we must also set those inner conflicts in order.
You’ll learn how to do the affirmation for the week in the webinar along with listen to some inspiration on the topic presented.
