Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda

02/01/2012

As tempting as it may have been to pick a book about love and relationships for the February book club selection, I decided to be obedient to that which was revealed to me from within. We do indeed each have a choice to make as to whether we will be led by Holy Spirit or led by the intellect/ego. Just a few days ago I awoke to the image of this book flashing in my mind as well as The Voice of God whispering the words, “Autobiography of a Yogi.” My first thought was that I was being advised to read this book again. There must be a message or lesson for me to be revealed by re-reading the amazing story of Paramahansa Yogananda. I then heard, “Book Club.” Ooooh!!!! We’re ALL going to read this one this month. Cool!

First published in 1946, Autobiography of a Yogi is an account of a soul’s search for Truth. It interestingly reveals the universal aspects and similarities within eastern and western spiritual perspectives. As we are indeed all on a journey of self-mastery, I’m sure we’ll each find many jewels of wisdom to light our paths this month and beyond as we visit and/or revisit this great book. If you’ve already read this book, pull it off of your bookshelf! Set it on your nightstand for easy access before bed or order the digital version. If somehow you’ve never read this book, you’re in for a real treat. Either way, come on back to the blog to share your thoughts, experiences and questions as you read and reflect on the journey of Paramahansa Yogananda.  Ideally you’ll be able to draw from his lessons and apply greater wisdom on your own path thereby.

What are your thoughts about the book? Do you believe that the seeming miracles that happened in his life could happen to you? What was your favorite story from his path? Can you see a parallel in any of his experiences with your own? What jewels of wisdom can you take into application in your own life at this time?  Which questions did you have about life and spirituality that were answered for you in reading this book?

*Reminder: You’re invited to tweet it up with me about this book and your revelations using #HTCBookClub. I AM @HealingTruthCtr on the twitter.

With love and faith in God as you…
