Self-Effort and God’s Grace – use your own, but God-given power
Yogananda’s teachings represent the perfect balance between putting forth self–effort and being open and receptive to God’s grace.
Being open to God’s grace is not a passive state.
The key is to align our self–effort with divine guidance and grace.
The more we live more in the thought of “we,” that God and I are doing this together, the more our actions will flow in harmony with God’s will for us and for our highest good.
