Leadership: A Spiritual Journey

Leadership: A Spiritual Journey tells us how outward development and action can be an aid to our spiritual progress. Leadership is a self-offering to others.

Kriyananda discusses the qualities of non-attachment, centeredness, service, patience, and magnetism, and helps us to understand their importance from both inner and outer perspectives. For example, regarding service;  leaders must offer their work and themselves humbly to others, or they risk falling from ego centeredness. Yogananda was humble and respectful to all whom he met, although he towered above them spiritually.

When dealing with negative people or negative personal traits, Kriyananda reminds us to work on only one battle at a time. We can’t reach our goals by forcing issues — we have to build our foundations carefully and ensure the energy is right. We must fight the battles we can win which gives us strength to conquer the more difficult ones.
