Monday Must Read! The Soul’s Journey to Its Destiny by Swami Ashokananda

 

soul's journey

In this illuminating book, Swami Ashokananda traces the decent of the individual from his true divine status to his present condition and describes his ascent back to God. He explains how the various aspects of one’s relative existence can be instrumental in the realization of his perfect being, which, in fact, he has never lost. The matter discussed herein is, in short, an explanation of the involution and evolution of the soul. One finds in these pages the Vedantic answers to many of the big questions that we have asked since we first started asking. It provides not only an intellectual understanding of the soul’s journey, but also practical counsels on how to speed it along.

On January 31, we’ll all be treated to something even better—the first Super Blue Moon Eclipse in 150 years.

blue moon is when two full moons happen in the same month (or when four moons happen in one season, where there’d usually be just three and actually has nothing to do with the moon’s color. Lunar eclipses occur when the moon passes into Earth’s shadow, and supermoons occur when the full moon happens at the same time the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit. On Jan. 31,  all three of these celestial events will happen at the same time.
