Youth Services – Youth Quest Program’s THANK YOU LETTER for “Inner Peace” Workshop versus “Restlessness” (YMCA Barrie/Muskoka)


“The first and foremost thing, the essence of that, is peace. The peace has to be within, to begin with. You have to be peaceful within yourself. If you are not peaceful, if you are playing tricks with your ego, if you are just satisfying yourself, saying that you are peaceful, you are sadly mistaken. Peace is to be enjoyed within yourself. It is to be felt within yourself. So do not give wrong satisfactions to yourself. Do not give false notions to yourself. Don’t cheat yourself.

Peace has to be felt within yourself and if you are not feeling that, you shouldn’t come and ask me, “Mother, why am I not feeling it?” because I am not going to tell you that something is wrong with you. You have to work it out that you  should feel peaceful within yourself. It is not that you have too much of silence outside, you feel peaceful. The peace has to be within yourself. You have it. Your spirit is absolutely peaceful, ‘avyagra’ (in Sanskrit language), – without restlessness. There’s no restlessness in your spirit, absolutely peaceful and steady. It is for you to feel it. It is not for anybody else to certify you… 

Only the peace within can register whatever is auspicious, whatever is nourishing for your growth. So try to make peace with yourself. Do not fight with yourself…”

    Sahaja Yoga is an excellent resource for the YMCA, youth, adults, children, it empowers the individual by helping them feel their connection through art, music,climate change projects, inner peace projects, working in harmony with all cultures, thoughtlessness,a new dimension of awareness, to become part of the big family of brothers and sisters,on this mother earth we share, which we can co-habitat with, in harmony. Good vibes all around. Joy in the present. Mohinder, I love your comments. If our focus is pure love and compassion and the desire to spread inner peace locally and globally, then there is no room for negativity. We simply are too busy giving self-realization programs and watching people’s faces light up as they feel it too. We are one, that is for sure. Very proud of the excellent, altruistic, peace driven, all volunteer team and all the creative meditation initiatives that are thriving in a widespread and mainstream way throughout various sectors of the community.
