I have the wonderful good fortune of living minutes away from Self Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine in Pacific Palisades, California, dedicated by the Master Paramahansa Yogananda in 1950. The beauty is abundant and the vibration sacred. The peace is palpable. It is so miraculous that Yogananda, long after he has gone, sustains his Unconditional Love on these grounds so that all who come can truly shift merely by osmosis. The energy is channeled to all who set foot there.
After a joyful visit this past weekend, I came to clearly see how important it is for us all to create for ourselves our own sacred space, whether it be in the form of a sanctuary, a temple, a sacred nook, an alter, or just a silent corner (that was my first “special place” just for me –a corner of a living room!). These are places that you create so that you can have a haven to fall into when it feels like all is falling ON you; a place to re-charge and regenerate your Life Force; or a simple reminder of peace. Create your own temple that you can look at or sit by and feel connection to All That Is and your Master within. This connection is so very important.
You can get there without your own sacred space, that’s for sure. But why not do everything that you can to set yourself up for success in channeling your Divine and finding peace on earth. No one ever said you couldn’t stack the deck… I’ll take anything that gets me there!
How about you?
