A New Slant

People often get more intense with their spiritual exercises when things appear to go wrong. Why? Perhaps because they want to force something in their life to go where they feel it ought to go. Or, the going is more tough than they expected.

Do a spiritual exercise anyway when all goes wrong. However, do it with a new thought in mind.

Ask the Mahanta, "What is thy will?" Then chant HU and put your full attention on the problem, for the Master will show how you can grow spiritually by meeting the problem.

When you go to sleep at night, tell yourself, in a very relaxed way, "I'm not going to worry or think about the spiritual exercise. If the Inner Master wants me to have a certain experience, great; but I'm not going to be trying. I'm just going to get some rest."

Then look into the inner vision, and chant yourself to sleep. This will relax some of the tension or fear you might be feeling about Soul Travel.

For some of you a certain exercise will work. Others of you will find other ways to do your spiritual exercises. Experiment.

As you do the spiritual exercises, set up enjoyable things to do on the inner planes. If one technique doesn't work for you, then modify it, adapt it, experiment. Do whatever you can and enjoy yourself.
