ParamaHansa Yogananda from, Metaphysical Meditations:
0 Spirit! ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new Bliss! Take away from my mind the weight of indifference and forgetfulness. May I drink the nectar of Thine ever blessed presence.
With the deepening of inner and outer silence, Thy peace comes to me. I will try always to hear the echo of Thy footsteps.
Having Thee as the deepest joy of deepest meditation, I know that all things — prosperity, health, and wisdom — will be added unto me.
Teach me to fish for Thee in the deepest waters of my soul.
My Beloved is Calling Me
With flowers, with bright skies, with the divine manna of joy in happy minds, with souls full of wisdom, with songs of the birds, with divine melodies in the hearts of men, my Beloved is calling me to retrace my footsteps to His home of peace within.
I will seek the kingdom of God in the joy arising from constant, long, deep, continuous meditation. I will conscientiously seek to find the Lord within, and will not be satisfied with the little imaginary inspirations that come from short, restless silences. I will meditate more and more deeply until I feel His presence.
