“You have to individually make love to God,” (Paramahansa Yogananda) insisted to us. “Keep your mind at the Christ Center in the forehead. As you work, remember also that you are working for God and Guru. always chant mentally: God and Guru; Guru, Christ, and Guru.
“Many come here, then pass their time in idle gossip and joking: Well, they won’t get God! There are many rats and mice living in the canyon on this property also, but they aren’t advancing spiritually; they aren’t finding God. It isn’t just being here that will get you to Him. You have to make your own effort. Each of you , in the end, stands alone before God.”
(pg. 319, Conversations with Yogananda)
