How to Rule the Kingdom of the Mind Part One
Swami Kriyananda | 04′:29″

In the first talk given on his birthday in 1978 Swami Kriyananda talks about his recent nationwide “Joy Tour.” He spoke in 50 cities, giving 86 lectures, not counting radio and TV interviews. This talk gives you a sense of how extensively Kriyananda traveled to bring the teachings to people in the early years, as he continues to do now!

The second talk “How to Rule the Kingdom of the Mind” contains many practical tools to become the ruler of the mind on the superconscious level. Kriyananda talks about how to remain in the presence of God in all that we do. Part two of this talk will be offered in June.

Key Points

Now is the time to create spiritual centers in America and worldwide, where people can come together for spiritual support.

Those who succeed spiritually do so, right here in the battle of life.

If you’ve got peace and joy in your heart, no matter what happens outside, you will be peaceful inside.

Try not to be personally identified with what goes on in the world. Do your best and leave the rest in God’s hands.

Questions

Can you recall a time in your life when you were able to become detached from something that was going on and felt God’s grace?

What are some ways that your inner joy expresses outwardly?

How to Rule the Kingdom of the Mind Part One

Key Points

The true “promised land” is found in the inner kingdom of the soul.

Any quality such as kindness, can be expressed through us, but the quality is not us.

Work with yourself as if you were working with a whole populace or with a community. Recognize that all traits are different aspects of your consciousness, but none of them is you. Play with them, as you would play with children.

Don’t be hypnotized by your faults, say, “alright I did it, but I want to change,” or “I haven’t yet succeeded.”

When you do something you can’t help, because of habit, or the strength of desire, inwardly resist it. Inwardly say, “all right, but I’m not doing it forever.” Yogananda said often, “a saint is a sinner who never gave up.”

Forgiveness of others and yourself is important.

Try not to be concerned about what other people think.

Questions

How can you see your personality traits with more detachment?

What are some areas of work or service that utilize your highest qualities?
