O Spirit, make my soul Thy temple, but make my heart Thy beloved home where Thou wouldst dwell with me in ease and everlasting understanding.
Establish a Temple of God in Your Own Soul
My greatest desire is to build temples of God in the souls of men; to see the smile of God on men’s faces. The most important of all life’s accomplishments is to establish a temple of God in one’s own soul. And it can be easily done. That is why Self-Realization Fellowship was sent to the West.
Anyone who has established God in his soul temple is a yogi. He can say, with me, that Yoga is for the East, North, South, and West - for all people, that they may follow the byways of theology to join the highway of Yoga. The right road leads to the palace of God’s bliss. He who reaches there shall “go no more out.”*

(Playing while I waited for my friends to get ready for the Temple burn on Sunday )
It’s 3:38 AM in Utah. We just arrived after driving 19+ hours from the desert. Exodus from Burning Man took 8 hours! My flight to Texas is in an hour, so I thought I’d say this now: it was hard to say goodbye at The Temple again, but you are always in my heart… And my hair, my pillows, shoes, toes, etc😜
