When the world is spinning around me with all of its hurricane-like symptoms, I remain calm. Sometimes I sit in the eye of the storm here in India, and God keeps me safe. I sing a song, recite spiritual text, and keep the other elements far away from my heart. I don't think about the “not good.” They are just symptoms. This is the kind of world that I live in, where all challenges and burdens turn around for the Good. Everything is good in my world. Even friends and family who are having pain. Their situations will turn for the good; this I am certain. And my days are filled only with the good. And I only stand by the good. I am in awe of this teaching, this awareness. Nothing else will pass by or through me. I am strict about this. This is how people keep their spiritual power; I'm just a storage unit for God, and this is how God works inside of me. Sometimes we even take our storage units to the park to eat ice cream together. Of course, my husband and I have to hold the cones for God. God just wants us to be happy.

You probably know what it feels like to sit on a beach with many crashing waves, or to sit near the base of a huge water fall. You feel the fresh mist on your face, the power of the water. You feel awe or wonder. An experience like this doe not go away very quickly. Likewise, the same feeling occurs with people who are truly happy. You remember them with a deep fondness, and a rush of happiness flows over you, or maybe even through you. To your heart. Why is this? Why are these two examples so similar to each other, yet so different in context? I think that it has to do with the God force present in both.

We humans are literally conductors of energy, being filled with mostly water. We are conducive to what we choose to bring in to our bodies: happy, or not happy. It is that simple. When we focus on the “not happy,” whether you know it or not, we share this with friends, family, and co-workers in the form of sickness, gossip, sad stories and flat-out curses. I know all about this, and you may too.

When you think of yourself as one of God's many storage units, well then you wouldn't want to be storing garbage in the same storage unit with God, right? God decides to take up residence with you after you invite him. You throw away as much trash as possible. The more trash gone, the more room for God. It's a process, but God doesn't mind as long as you are making an effort and aren't a huge offender of the same things every time. It really does work this way. When you store the Good inside of your heart, life becomes less like a storm, and more like an exhilarating waterfall, or wave.
