Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.
The spiritual life does not remove us from the world but leads us deeper into it.
Henri J. M. Nouwen
Spirit is an invisible force made visible in all life.
Spirituality, for me, is everyone’s natural connection with the wonder and energy of life...and the instinct to explore that experience and its meaning.
In its simplest definition, ‘spirituality’ means knowing how to live with meaning and purpose.
Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University
I was going through a very hard time in life. I was feeling pretty low about everything and I felt as if I could no longer go on. I was at the crossroads in life but it felt as if I was going to have some sort of breakdown. One night I could see myself sitting on the end of my bed with my hands buried in my face. I just felt like I couldn’t handle things any longer and I was crying. I was looking at myself doing this and it was very strange. Suddenly out of the corner of my eye I saw an overpowering bright light in the corner of my room. I’m a very nervous person and I get frightened very quickly so I didn’t want to automatically face the light, but something inside my head told me to face it - so I did. When I did face it, my whole body was thrown into the light and I was showered with an amazing sense of love. A love beyond words. Nothing mattered anymore. Through the light I saw what I believe to be Jesus Christ. We didn’t speak through words but through thoughts. He told me that everything was going to be OK and that I didn’t need to worry anymore. There was even a touch of humor from him. Since that experience I was able to move away from some difficulties I was having at the time.

Sigmund Freud – dreams
Considered the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) revolutionizes the study of dreams with his work The Interpretation Of Dreams.
Introduction to Sigmund Freud’s Theory on dreams
Freud believed the dream to be composed of two parts - the manifest and the latent content. The manifest content can be thought of as what a person would remember as soon as they wake – what they would consciously describe to someone else when recalling the dream. Freud suggested that the manifest content possessed no meaning whatsoever because it was a disguised representation of the true thought underlying the dream. A fascinating website with lots of information.
The philosophy of dreams - by Sri Swami Sivananda
The analysis of dreams and their cause by psychoanalysts are defective. They maintain that the cause of dream creation lies in the suppressed desires of the dreamer. Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj is an Advaita Vedantin of Sri Sankara’s School, he is unique in that in his life and teachings he synthesises the highest idealism and dynamic practical life. His “Divine Life” is ideal life, ideal and divine only because it is possible to live it here and now.
