YOU NEED TO SETUP
topic for todayís presentation is what we need to setup an Outer
Sanctum. Before I address let me share a personal experience about the
importance of the sanctum. I put away my Sanctum after I got married. I
do not recall why I did that but it could be that I did not want to
confuse my spouse with another way of looking at things. After about 20
years or so I started having some personal issues like having negative
thoughts about life in general and that affected my disposition. It was
clear that I was sick in my inner world. Meanwhile a thought flashed
through my mind to setup my sanctum. After about a couple of months or
so I summoned up the courage and looked for the boxes containing the
materials. I did not set it up that day because there was no spare desk
and I didnít have a table cloth. After about another month or so I
acquired a desk and a table cloth and setup my sanctum after about 20
years. The moment I set it up my disposition changed. About two days
after I setup the Sanctum our daughter came to my office to visit. The
first thing she noticed and commented on was my positive outlook and I
told her what happened.
know we all have our ways of looking at things but in most cases we look
at things from the perspective of the culture in which we grew up. The
truth is that until you look at things from YOUR OWN WAY youíll
continue to recycle the thoughts of your culture and possibly miss out
on the blessings of life. I am trying my best to share a way of life
that could change your life. You have tried many things and failed in
the past because they were not your ideas. What I am sharing is a way of
life that puts you on the driverís seat. Thus instead of trying
different things from different so-called gurus to find out what works
why not begin a way of life that works all the time! A way of life that
surrounds you with love! A way of life that motivates you! A way of life
that prospers you! A way of life that gives you peace! A way of life
that makes you happy! And a way of life that expands your awareness!
That way of life begins by setting up your sanctum. Remember what Joseph
Campbell said: This is the place of creative incubation. At first you might find
that nothing is happening there, but if you have a sacred place and use
it and take advantage of it something will happen.

awareness evolved I replaced it with my own picture. Thus the image you
use may depend on the level of your awareness and of course your

could really change your life! For sacred texts I use the Bhagavad Gita,

I want you to know that this is
your life and you came with a clean slate to write on it. Would you
write what you learned from your culture or would you write your
experiences? The choice is yours! The
book Unto Thee I Grant teaches us that the noblest employment of the
mind of man is the study of the works of his creator. You do not study
by recycling the experiences of others; you need a firsthand experience
and that experience begins with knowing who you are!
