Feedback and what was learned. Many took offense and overreacted. This is good. Much humour came from it too. Those who view themselves as fish and those who view themselves as whales both learned something about the self. Everybody are working together to promote world peace. Global mission making progress. Thank you to all the teachers and learners. It can be stated that we are all growing and no harm was done. Less suffering and more happiness to all.
I love Yogananda and Yukteswar, and I definitely remember this quote from Yogananda's world-famous autobiography. Living in Santa Barbara, I sometimes get the chance to go down to the SRF Lake Shrine temple, and be in the presence of that altar with pictures of Yogananda, Sri Yukteswar, Lahiri Mahasaya and Babaji -- along with pictures of Jesus and Krishna
Having the status of an oceanic mind is a learned virtue and must have been developed by ups and downs of life. Thus, supressing the fish of little thoughts that causes the much commotion in shallow men.It is better to act like men of thought and reason like men of action.
Thanks Christina, I like to say that Quotes usually carry subjective meanings best known to the author of the quotes.One may perhaps key into it or extend the frontiers, a clear indication of the uniqueness of humankind. Nevertheless, reality could be constructed from already existing quotes in a subjective manner just the manner the initial author had quoted his and thats what I have done.Going by this,I have not made allusion to any religious group niether the suppression of any one but the individual as a person just like you have established. The wisdom in my subjective interpretation lies in humility which is the secrete of successful living for an individual and this comes to be by virtue of the vagaries of life that has the propensity to shape the individual to that level of humility wherein one will learn humility through what he has suffered in life, thus making such individual to realise that the little thoughts that orchestrate much commotion and put in a better way pride does not worth it. Jesus Christ did say that he learned humility through what he had suffered, on many occasions Jesus Christ was mistaken for a commoner until he told them who he was(a Whale of inspiration to humankind). An empty drum makes the most sound. The bottom line is the lesson and wisdom of humility from whichever divide we stay on the qoutes.
