Trained in Divine Love (excerpt)

Below is a short excerpt from a letter Anandi wrote to her guru, Paramhansa Yogananda:

Thoughts of you fill my heart today. Two or three weeks ago I felt you looking thoughtfully at me and inwardly I heard you say, “The quirks have disappeared.” I think so too. When a ship is taken into pure water the barnacles drop off. Similarly, when God allows a devotee to live in the pure spiritual water that surrounds a guru, faults disappear without effort.

I have only one job. To keep my consciousness with You, to grow in love and joy and attunement. To keep my eye on the ball, in the present. To try to be connected to You in love and joy, and to share that through service at Ananda.

--From Trained in Divine Love by Nayaswami Anandi
