         Deep writing, very profound… Not a manuscript to read lightly, this could have seriously profound effects on the reader’s life. What a privilege to have studied as this man has.
   ~ Louise-Jayne Haddaway

A story of karma, insufficient faith, and spiritual progress. A journey of spiritual values, truths, and hard-earned lessons.

     The Will of the Divine is often hard to comprehend, particularly for Jacob C. Miller (eventually known as Arjuna D. Ghose), a man caught up in a cycle of abuse, drugs, and bad choices from a deep, lingering, internal struggle. From the beginning of his daughter’s life, Jacob is devoted to her well-being, but eventually he gets caught up in an addiction that is a major insult to his awakening and moral standards he developed during his spiritual life. An intervention marks the beginning of a new, two-fold journey: an outer struggle to help free his daughter from emotional neglect, and a continued struggle within as he attempts to free himself from the scars of his own childhood. This new journey brings forward his true spiritual nature as the main guiding force in his life as he realizes that everything which he has gone through has been karma for vengeful behaviour toward his spiritual teacher. It is a journey of spiritual lessons and awakening while fighting against speciousness; a journey of bringing to the fore his own illumined inner sun….

Spiritual Lotus Flower

In the Hindu religion, the lotus is used to represent divine beauty and purity, while the unfolding of its leaves represents the expanding of the soul and spiritual awakening.

Guru Sri Chinmoy

“What I understand from reading Guru’s writings, or from experience, is that self-improvement occurs when personal effort meets Grace from Above, and looking back I realized, yes, I made personal effort. But, dammit — there was a lot of Grace going on.”
~ Arjuna D. Ghose, The Struggle Within

How to Bring
Your Inner Sun to the Fore

     When the problems of the outer being stand as an obstruction, cry inwardly. That cry is not for name or fame. That cry is for inner illumination. When the outer being is an obstacle, it means that the sun, the inner sun, is eclipsed by fear, doubt, anxiety, worry or some other negative force. Right now the sun is overcast, but it is bound to become visible again. The inner sun is covered by what? By ignorance, doubt, anxiety and worry. But consciously if you pray or meditate to bring the inner sun, your own illumined sun, to the fore, it will get strength and it will come forward. Now you have to know whether you want it or not. If you want the inner sun to come to the fore, then it will come forward. When the sun comes, at that time doubt disappears, fear disappears, everything undivine disappears.

     So either you have to bring forward the inner sun or you have to be satisfied with fear and doubt. How can you bring to the fore the inner sun? When you pray to the Supreme and meditate on the Supreme, always pray that the illumined part inside you, the illumined being or the inner sun, will come to the fore. Then you will see that there can be no obstacle. You are unable to walk along the street if the street is very dark or full of obstacles. But if the road is all illumined, then you can walk, you can run, you can go as fast as you want to. In the inner life also, if you think positively, if you think of Peace, Light and Bliss, then naturally your inner sun will come to your rescue. But if you don’t pray and meditate, then all obscure, undivine, impure forces will always come and bother you.
