From the Spiritual Diary, July 26, Practicing the Presence of God: Although I am planning and doing things in the world, it is only to please the Lord. I test myself: even when I am working I whisper within, "Where are You, Lord?" and the whole world changes. There is nothing but a great Light, and I am a little bubble in that Ocean of Light. Such is the joy of existence in God. - Paramahansa Yogananda, "Man's Eternal Quest"
