If You Want His Answer

If You Want His Answer
by Paramahansa Yogananda

Whether He replies or not,
keep calling Him —
ever calling in the chamber
of continuous prayer.

Whether He comes or not,
believe He is ever approaching
nearer to you
with each command of your heart’s love.

Whether He answers or not,
keep entreating Him.
Even if He makes no reply
in the way you expect,
ever know that in some subtle way
He will respond.

In the darkness of your deepest prayers,
know that with you He is playing
hide-and-seek.

And in the midst of the dance of life, disease and death,
if you keep calling Him,
undepressed by His seeming silence,
you will receive His answer.

Today’s Quote

light

When you find that your soul, your heart,
every wisp of inspiration,
every speck of the cast blue sky
and its shining star-blossoms,
the mountains, the earth,
the whippoorwill, and the bluebells
are all tied together with
one cord of rhythm,
one cord of joy,
one cord of unity,
one cord of Spirit,
then you shall know
that all are but waves
in His cosmic sea.

~ Paramahansa Yogananda ~
