if i had to do a marathon blogger series…

Standard

i would do it on the works of the writer who has inspired me completely.

15 years ago it would have been rene goscinny
10 years ago it would have been plum:-)
5 years ago it would have been a tie between pratchett and bombeck

today it is Paramahansa Yogananda…

two years ago, his “autobiography of a Yogi” swept me off my feet like the way the H. Potter novels did when i was in my 20s.

i’ve changed my lifestyle to make way for the changes he prescribes…

sometimes he speaks of the most simple things

“If you spend your life in constant excitement, you will never know true happiness. Live simply and take life more easily. Happiness lies in giving yourself time to think and to introspect. Be alone once in a while, and remain more in silence.” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
