Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal. Do this either by work, worship, psychic control or philosophy — by one, or more, or all of these — and be free. This is the whole of religion. Doctrines, dogmas, rituals, books, temples, and forms, are but secondary details. -- Swami Vivikenanda

Where is the safest place to stand when a hurricane hits? Yes, in the eye, or the center, of the storm. We all know about it...the calm in the middle of the storm. So what does this have to do with your life? Just as a hurricane builds up through pressures in the atmosphere, the pressures in your life can easily build up until nothing but chaos seems to be around you. From the daily rat race, economic crisis, marriage troubles, the loss of a loved one, the chaos of keeping a home together and so on so forth, pressures build up in our lives everyday. Most people will attempt to fight against the chaos...to force their way through the storm and get out. But all that will happen is a constant fight that eventually leads to exhaustion... or in other words, they burn out. Have you ever experienced burn out? It's not a very nice place to be in. Even the simplest of tasks is extremely difficult to do when you don't have the energy. And worse than not being able to do things for yourself is the fact that you can't even be there for those who depend on you. Surviving the hurricane of life doesn't have to lead to burn out. It's all about knowing how to find your center. Those who know how to do this are the ones who can stay calm despite the chaos that is happening around them. They know the secret of centering themselves.
Learn how to easily find your center, and never face another moment where you feel exhausted and powerless.
