Spirit Sounds
For Every Drop of Rain that  Falls, A Flower Grows!

This morning I awoke, with the lyrics of the song, “I Believe“, streaming through my mind.   I share them with you:

I believe for every drop of rain that falls
a flower grows.
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night, 
a candle glows.
I believe for everyone who goes astray,
someone will come to show the way, 
I believe, I believe.
I believe, above the storm,
the smallest prayer, will still be heard.
I believe, that someone
in the great somewhere, hears every word.
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry,
or touch a leaf, or see the sky,
then I know why I believe!

Yogananda on Courage



“Do not take life’s experiences too seriously.

Above all, do not let them hurt you,

for in reality they are nothing but dream experiences.

Play your part in life, but never forget it is only a role.

If circumstances are bad and you have to bear them,

do not make them a part of yourself…..

What you lose in the world will not be a loss to your soul.

Trust in God

and destroy fear, which paralyses all efforts to succeed

and attracts the very thing you fear.

All Nature will commune with you

when you are in tune with God.

Realization of this truth

will make you

Synchronicity:  God’s Play

Have you ever experienced a moment of such “coincidence” that you just cannot believe it happened — a moment that perhaps changed the course of events of your life; or, an event that brought your life into the same time and place of another that you suddenly know you simply had to meet?  Coincidence?  Synchronicity! 

Albert Einstein defined “Coincidence” as ‘God’s way of remaining anonymous’.  

For synchronicity to happen the universe has to be orchestrated for that event to occur at that given moment, in that given place, and in that given way!

Coincidence?  Synchronicity!
