What Faith means....

Hello there blog friends!  I hope you are having a TERRIFIC week!

It might seem that I've fallen off the blog radar, it's just LIFE has come in full force.  Big ups and big downs, but what else is new?  I think what it's come down to me lately is just my FAITH.  And by faith, I mean believing in myself and trusting in the Lord.  Believing the best of others and their intentions... believing that difficult situations will work out for my best in the end.

I find that we believe what we tell ourselves!  So if we tell ourselves that we are blessed and have loving family and friends - we will believe it.  But if we tell ourselves that we are alone and no one is true to us - we will believe that too.  So it's important to FEED OURSELVES GOOD THOUGHTS.

My Faith is in choosing to believe the good of myself and others, especially when it's hardest and things are difficult.

So on that note, my daughter, made a video by herself on what faith means to her.  She did if for a project she was working on and more than half the pictures are personal ones of ours.  I'd like to post if for you to enjoy.  I think she did a fantastic job!!  ENJOY.





LIFE IS GOOD!!! 
Love,

That is a great video.

You are right about perspective. It becomes our reality. I am constantly trying to reframe everything that comes my way in life in a positive sense. Sometimes it is easier to do than others, but it is worth it.

Just what is the Bhagavad-gita? The purpose of Bhagavad-gita is to deliver mankind from the nescience of material existence. Every man is in difficulty in so many ways, as Arjuna also was in difficulty in having to fight the Battle of Kuruksetra. Arjuna surrendered unto Sri Krsna, and consequently this Bhagavad-gita was spoken. Not only Arjuna, but every one of us is full of anxieties because of this material existence. Our very existence is in the atmosphere of nonexistence. Actually we are not meant to be threatened by nonexistence. Our existence is eternal. But somehow or other we are put into asat. Asat refers to that which does not exist.

How to read this book?
First read the Introduction, then start on Chapter 1, read through all the verses, then on to Chapter 2, and so on, until you finish all 18 chapters.

If you have any questions about the Bhagavad-Gita while you are reading it, if there is some part that you don't understand, feel free to email me and I'll try my best to answer your questions.

And in case you are not the philosophical type, a person who likes to read philosophy, then just try chanting the following mantra for just 15 minutes a day and see what the effect of it is in your personal life.

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare

In the end, what do you have to lose?
