Para-Gram by Parmahansa Yogananda
The light of God is evenly distributed, but in some men it is more apparent than in others, for those who tune in with Him reflect His light more clearly. Realization comes from constant, deep meditation and from ever-busy, ever-searching mental effort to convert theory, through practice, into useful knowledge. Lift your consciousness from the confining, noisy world of matter into the vastness of silence, and commune there with God. Do not look for a spiritual flower every day. Sow the seed, water it with prayer and right endeavor. When it sprouts take care of the plant, pulling out the weeds of doubt, indecision, and indifference that may spring up around it. Some morning you will suddenly behold your long-awaited spiritual flower of Realization.
