Enlightenment Thought.
Honor is given to someone who does something good and then moves on

Self improvement Thought.
To be experienced means not to be deceived by anything. There are so many times when a situation takes us by surprise and we make the same mistake that we had made before. It is only when the situation has passed that we realize that we have actually repeated that mistake. What then remains is only repentance as the time has passed where we could have done something. Whenever there is a mistake, we need to take care that we learn from whatever has happened. When we continue to move forward in this way there will be no repentance for the mistakes made but there will be learning that'll make us experienced. And when we are experienced we'll never be deceived by situations which make us commit mistakes.

When I learn the art of forgiving I am able to be free from the burden of negative and waste thinking. So there is never any difficulty in giving correction when necessary. The mind is free from the attitudes of the past and it creates harmony in relationships even if the opinions or personalities don't match.

To recognize one's own uniqueness is to respect oneself.

To have respect for oneself based on other people's opinion or situational achievements is to have respect temporarily.

This understanding enables one to see one's own uniqueness without being influenced or without comparing with others.

Experience:
When I know to recognize and appreciate my own uniqueness and respect myself on this basis, I am able to be free from ego or a feeling of inferiority.

I am not disturbed by temporary clashes that I have because of the different nature of the person I am working with, but enjoy working together. So there is also good feelings from the other person too and so there is easy success experienced.

Expression:
A negative situation or a person who is in need and is helpless usually stimulates feelings of unhappiness or sorrow. At such a time it becomes very difficult to maintain a positive state of mind.

Enlightenment Thought.
Real power is not dominance, but spiritual fuel. It is what enables you to perform to your greatest potential.

Self improvement Thought.
The one who has the power of realization is the one who can bring transformation.

Projection

Solution
Instead of looking for excuses for what happened, we need to take the opportunity to check within ourselves and see our own mistake. When we recognize our mistake, however small it may be, we will be able to work on it. Only when we are able to realize our own mistake, will we be able to bring about transformation in ourselves.

Enlightenment Thought.
Never lose hope. Hope is a rope that swings you through life.

Self improvement Thought.
True love is felt by all who receive it.

Projection
Sometimes we do find ourselves in situations where others are not responding to the love we are giving. We are trying to be understanding and accepting as much as possible but others don't seem to be recognizing it. In such a situation we begin to blame others and their lack of feelings and concern.

Solution
Instead of blaming others when our love and concern is not being reciprocated, we need to check the quality of the love that we give. If there is even a trace of selfishness or if it is mixed with expectations, our love will not be able to reach out and touch the hearts of others. So we need to make sure that our love is pure and unselfish.

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

Thought - 24 Nov'09

Today's Thought.
When there is love, tolerance becomes easy. Love makes us free from expectations, which enables us to accept people as they are. The more we go within ourselves we are able to discover our own strengths. We will automatically be a giver in all situations and we can tolerate very easily. Let us think of one person in whom we are not able to tolerate some quality. We then need to tell ourselves that just as a mother accepts her child even with weaknesses, we will accept this person as he is. When we change our attitude towards that person we can be tolerant.

Enlightenment Thought.
Never blame others to protect yourself, for TIME has a way of revealing TRUTH.

Self improvement Thought.
Negative situations can be transformed into positive with the power of stability.

Projection
When faced with a negative situation, usually the mind gets affected. Lot of questions arise in the mind that don't allow us to be stable at that time. Because of the thoughts in our mind, though it is in our hands to work at transforming the situation, we don't make use of this opportunity but only end up adding to the negativity.

Solution
In a negative situation, it is necessary for us to maintain our own inner stability. We need to free ourselves from wasteful thoughts. Then, the negativity in the situation will finish, first in our mind and then in the situation itself. Our own internal stability will help in finishing the influence of the external situation.

Thought - 23 Nov'09

Today's Thought.
Only after you are awake do you realize you were sleeping.

Enlightenment Thought.
A good method to remain happy and make others happy is to be flexible and adjust yourself to different people's personalities and opinions.

Self improvement Thought.
Accuracy brings perfection and specialty in all that is done.

Expression:
To be accurate means to take up full responsibility for every task and do it to the best of one's ability. That means all resources that one has are used in the best possible way for the best result of the task. This naturally brings perfection in everything that is done.

Experience:
When I am accurate in everything I do I am able to be free from carelessness and negligence. I find myself bringing specialty and uniqueness in what I do. For having done things with accuracy, I also find myself becoming trust-worthy and I am also able to be satisfied with myself.

Self improvement Thought.
To end waste means to be free from defeat.

Expression:
The one with faith in the intellect always remains at a distance from waste, whether it is waste thoughts, waste words or waste actions. To move away from waste means to be victorious. The one who is free from waste is busy with the positive and useful. Such a person is constantly searching for solutions and trying to make the best out of the situation.

Experience:
It is because of waste that I sometimes experience defeat and sometimes victory. If I am able to finish waste, I am able to finish defeat. Because whatever the situation may be, however challenging it may be, if I am able to finish waste I am able to recognize the benefit that is merged within it and so I am able to experience being constantly victorious.

Thought - 19 Nov'09

Today's Thought.
To tolerate and maintain good wishes in the face of adversity requires tremendous inner strength. However, the rewards are great.

Enlightenment Thought.
When we re-connect with the oldest memory of the soul, the state of peace, we can then re-establish peace in our inner world. This is the start of peace in the wider world.

Self improvement Thought.
Where there is honesty there is flexibility.

Projection
When someone challenges the truth of what we are saying we generally tend to argue and prove our point in order to prove ourselves right. When we argue in this way, it only shows our own stubbornness and doesn't help in anyway to reveal the truth. Where silence doesn't help in revealing the truth, argument never will because the other person is not in a position to listen to us at that moment.

Solution
We need to realize the fact that when the other person is not able to recognize the truth, our arguing will not help in any way. When the truth is with us we need not argue but we only need to wait for the right opportunity to talk what we have to say. When we try to talk when the other person is not in a position to listen to us, it only reveals our lack of flexibility.

When you appreciate how much help you have received to cope with and learn from the difficulties you've had in your life, it gives you patience and trust to face whatever comes next.

Self improvement Thought.
The one who is open to learning always finds an opportunity to learn and change.

Expression:
Life has plenty of opportunities for the one who wants to learn. Each situation and person that comes one's way is an instrument for a new learning. Constant learning brings about a deep internal change and progress in one's life.

Experience:
When I am able to learn from all that happens, I am able to be content for both what I have learnt and the change that I have been able to bring about. This contentment also keeps me enthusiastic and my mind open for further learning. I naturally become an embodiment of what I have learnt.

Today's Thought.
If there are teachings, instructions or corrections to be given, always give them with a lot of love, and no trace of anger.

Enlightenment Thought.
The aim of a true server is to be an instrument and the embodiment of humility.

Self improvement Thought.
To know that the seed of selfless action will surely bear fruit at its own time is to be light.

Projection
Sometimes when we involved in a task, we tend to get carried away with the result. We become so result-oriented that we begin to expect the fruit of what we have done immediately. Without the recognition of the fact that the result might take time to come, we begin to get caught up with our own expectations. This creates a lot of heaviness in our mind and we might even give up what we are doing.

Solution
When we make a contribution for something, we must develop faith that whatever has to happen will happen at the right time. We don't have to eat unripe fruit, i.e., not get carried away with immediate.

Today's Thought.
Peace is an energy created inside. When I speak with peace, and you listen to peace, the energy increases.

Enlightenment Thought.
Violence at home can lead to blood in the streets.

Self improvement Thought.
The method to finish a weakness is to be detached from it.

Expression:
When there is some weakness working within that has to be overcome, it is very essential for one to get detached from it, that means not to identify with the weakness. If there is an identification with the weakness, it is further strengthened and there is the inability to get rid of it. Since it is there in the consciousness, it is visible in the words and actions too.

Experience:
When I am free from the identification with the weakness, I am able to bring about a change very quickly. I find it very easy to stabilize myself in the awareness of my strength and allow that strength to be revealed in all my words and actions. There is no heaviness of the weakness nor is there the feeling of having to give up something, but transformation takes place very easily.

Awareness of God will end all confusions and make the soul sparkle.

Enlightenment Thought.
Happiness is a daily decision.

Self improvement Thought.
Bringing newness in dealing with life's situations brings happiness.

Expression:
When there is the desire to find new ways of responding to life's challenges, unhappiness ends which in turn helps to fulfill one's highest potential. All it needs is the determination to adopt a fresh awareness. Thus burdensome thoughts that drain out positive energy are set aside. The quality of life itself becomes better.

Experience:
I experience a lot of happiness when there is newness brought in responding to situations. The potential and the energy of the mind is channelised in a positive way so there is an experience of fulfillment and satisfaction. The mind is not caught up with negative or waste but is busy trying for the best solutions in all situations.

Free myself from the subtle chains of an unfinished project.
Perhaps the unfinished project is no longer relevant or necessary, or has been given a much lower priority. Decide if the project is still worth investing your energy in and, if not, put it to rest once and for all. Is the cause of your procrastination fear or confusion? Invoke the appropriate virtue or power needed to complete the task. You are a powerful soul.

Sweetness is a virtue that searches with patience for the good in every person and situation

Enlightenment Thought.
Thought that empower create energy in the mind.

Self improvement Thought.
The one who is responsible is the one who is always light.

Expression:
To be responsible means to do everything with the best of one's ability. It comes with the recognition and the understanding of the importance of the task. No action is wasted, but everything meaningfully connects to the fulfillment of the task. So there are not even ordinary actions, but only those that are meaningful.

Experience:
When I take up every task that I need to do with full responsibility, I am able to give my best. Then I will be able to be light having done my task well and in time. There is never the pressure of work, but there is plenty of time for the self and for others. I also find my inner resources being used to the fullest extent.

Make a list of someone else's best qualities and virtues.
Imagine you've been asked to speak at a special occasion in celebration of someone else's life. Invite others to help you compile the list. Write their virtues out beautifully to make an uplifting gift.

Instill in yourself the habit of seeing the best in everyone. Focus on the positive and help others to be the best they can.

Today's Thought.
Real power is not dominance, but spiritual fuel. It is what enables you to perform to your greatest potential.

Enlightenment Thought.
Your vision of hope can steer a wrong turn into the right direction.

Self improvement Thought.
The power of stability enables to cross over all obstacles.

Expression:
The one who is stable is not influenced by one's own old habits and tendencies to react, but is able to think and act properly under all circumstances. The power of stability brings forth the best decisions in the most difficult times, brings solutions and helps in lessening the impact of the obstacle itself.

Experience:
When I am stable on the seat of a master, I am able to be free from the influence of my own old habits, those that are of weakness. Instead I am able to transform old habits into new ones, making them into those of power. Learning to be stable in the most difficult situations, enables me to cross over all obstacles very easily.

Lighten my heart by making an apology.
Phone or write your apology if a face-to-face apology feels too challenging. If you want to apologise to someone who has passed away, picture them in your mind, or focus on a photograph of them while you speak.

Let go of shame, guilt or regret; they hinder your growth, and keep you trapped in the past, stuck in self-hatred. It is time to move on and heal. Restore equality in an important relationship.

As well as being sweet and generous-hearted, become powerful so that you do not fluctuate with self-doubt in the face of challenges.

Enlightenment Thought.
When one observes the beauty that is within God, it becomes so easy to appreciate the beauty within Creation.

Self improvement Thought.
The one with zeal and enthusiasm is constantly tireless.

Expression:
Zeal and enthusiasm brings the willingness to move forward under all circumstances. Never are there are any excuses given, whatever the difficult situations or challenges that one might be faced with. Instead whatever has to be done is done without any tiredness. Also the best is made out of all situations.

Experience:
When I am able to be enthusiastic under all circumstances, I am able to be tireless. This tirelessness gives me the courage to move on and experience constant success. I become aware of my own resources and make the best use of them. So I also experience internal progress, constantly.

Put a full stop on the past.
Whatever happened cannot be changed, it is now part of your history. Your past has shaped you and brought you to this moment. Cast from your mind phrases such as ‘I should have’, ‘Why didn’t I’ and ‘If Only’. Accept the lessons you have learnt from past choices. Make peace with yourself.

Disentangle yourself from regret, shame and guilt. Shake off the past and move forward with peace of mind.

Today's Thought.
Man looks at outward appearance but the Lord looks within

Enlightenment Thought.
Lack of Divine Knowledge exposes you to the bullets of Negative Thoughts & Lack of Divine Virtues exposes you the bullets of vices.

Self improvement Thought.
True royalty lies in humility.

Expression:
The one who is humble never reacts but responds in the right way to situations or challenges. Thus there is royalty visible in all words, actions and behavior. So there is newness visible in the way of responding to situations.

Experience:
When I am humble I am able to be beyond the influence of praise and defamation. This is because I am stable in the state of my self-respect. Also because of this I am able to bring about newness and I am able to be creative in responding to situations too.

Delight in making a gift with my hands.
Draw a picture, pot a plant, make a toy, give a foot massage, sew, invent a new dessert, decorate something, or make greeting cards. Perfection is not necessary. Give your gift from the heart and complete the circle of love.

Let your loving intentions permeate your creation. It is definitely the thought that counts. Gifts you make are priceless.

Thought - 06 Oct'09

Today's Thought.
Quiet: Have you ever wondered why some libraries have special atmospheres? They are places where many congregate but where silence is the code. Quietness in an atmosphere means there is the presence of quiet minds, and quiet minds are not only relaxed, they can concentrate easily and create more freely. Imagine you are in the library of your mind, browsing the accumulated wisdom on the shelves of your life - listen to the silence, be aware of the stillness. Now you can really listen. Now you can really hear. Now you can really think. Now you can create. And behold, you are an artist. Did you not know that silence and creativity are close friends?

Enlightenment Thought.
A good method to remain happy and make others happy is to be flexible and adjust yourself to different people's personalities and opinions.

Self improvement Thought.
When there is love, tolerance becomes easy.

Contemplation:
Love makes us free from expectations, which enables us to accept people as they are. The more we go within ourselves we are able to discover our own strengths. We will automatically be a giver in all situations and we can tolerate very easily.

Application:
Let me think of one person in whom I am not able to tolerate some quality. I then need to tell myself that just as a mother accepts her child even with weaknesses, I will accept this person as he is. When I change my attitude towards that person I can be tolerant.

Creatively seek solutions.
To solve a problem take yourself to a contrasting environment – if it’s a work-related issue go to a café or park. Describe the situation to yourself in the third person, as though you are talking about someone else. List every possible solution, even the wild and outrageous ones. What advice will you give your best friend – yourself?

Step back from your worries. Observe yourself and your circumstances to make your issues and options clear.

Today's Thought.
If your actions have been according to your conscience, they will be your protection.

Enlightenment Thought.
The history of the world is created from our individual actions, as is the future of the world.

Self improvement Thought.
Determination fills a thought with power.

Expression:
Any thought which is added with determination automatically brings confidence. This confidence naturally fills the thought with power. When there is the thought, 'I can do it', there is surely the power to do it. Then there are no distractions, nor is there any comparison with others. All resources are put to the maximum use and the task is accomplished.

Experience:
When I am able to fill my positive thoughts with the power of determination, I am able to bring all my special thoughts and plans into action immediately. I am able to feel the satisfaction of bringing equality into my thoughts, words and actions. There is no feeling of helplessness, but there is only confidence and courage in doing what I am supposed to do.

Today's Thought.
Be economical with your thoughts, time and words and you will be able to make use of the help that is coming to you.

Enlightenment Thought.
Your good wishes can even enable someone who is far away from you to experience happiness.

Self improvement Thought.
The method to bring about a permanent change is to bring about newness in thinking.

Expression: To bring about a permanent change for the better means getting the mind trained to new ways of looking at the same situation. Only with this new understanding will there be a new response. Trying to bring about change in a superficial way will not bring about a long-lasting change.

Experience: When I train my mind to think creatively I'm able to keep my mind busy. In this way I'm able to free it from thinking negative and waste. Also I find myself enjoying every scene that comes in front of me and I also find myself constantly progressing.

Discover something new about someone I love.
You may know someone’s essential nature, but you’ll never know all the details of their life. Ask them about their first love, their greatest adventure, their most profound lesson in life, or their latest plans.

Keep your relationships fresh, and avoid making assumptions, or taking each other for granted. Enjoy moments of inspired intimacy.

Thought - 03 Nov'09

Today's Thought.
Bondages: If your mind is caught in bondages and problems of the past, you will not experience the joys of the present.

Enlightenment Thought.
We may forget our own virtues but our heart never forgets.
A useful thought is one that brings benefit to yourself and others.

Self improvement Thought.
To be a teacher means to touch the heart rather than the head.

Expression: Teaching others means being subtle and explaining in such a way that the mind opens because the heart has understood. The one who truly teaches inspires rather than just becoming the one who teaches others. There is a recognition of the positivity that is in each one and so no comparisons are made with others.

Experience: Once I am able to look at the positivity in another individual and have the pure desire of enabling progress within that person, I am able to feel the love for him. This is like a parent's love whose love for the child is that which makes him grow. So I become a teacher who inspires rather than the one who teaches.

Spread peace by speaking less.
Think before you speak and choose your words with care. In conversation, listen carefully to others so you don’t go over what has already been covered. Try eating in silence. Renounce all unnecessary banter today and conserve your energy. Let people around you know your intentions beforehand so they won’t take offence.

Thought - 02 Nov'09

Today's Thought.
Being a detached observer as the scenes of life pass by, will enable you to understand the secrets hidden within them.

Enlightenment Thought.
When someone has a habit of causing sorrow they are under an influence, let your attitude be merciful and don't allow yourself to take that sorrow on.

Self improvement Thought.
To have hope means to have a chance for success.

Projection: When we encounter failures, we sometimes get so disheartened that we lose hope in both the situations and in ourselves. Instead of seeing the obstacle that comes our way as a turn, we see it as an end and give up trying. So we lose out on our chance for success.

Solution: Even when things don't seem to be working out right, we must never leave hope. To leave hope means to rule out our chance for success. When we have hope we will keep thinking of new ways for success. We will then surely get cooperation from somewhere or the other and we will be successful.

Compassion: A compassionate person develops an eye for spotting the qualities that make each person special. Even when others are at their lowest ebb, it is possible to help them restore their self-belief by keeping a firm, clear vision of their goodness and specialties. Taking a gently encouraging approach, I must never give up on anyone.

Today's Thought.
Great Donors: Those who share peace through their thoughts are truly great donors.

Enlightenment Thought.
Smile: When I smile, not only do I feel happy, but also I bring a ray of light into the lives of others.

Self improvement Thought.
Heart's Attitude: It is not the body's posture but the heart's attitude that counts when we meditate.

Devise five ways to make my life calm.
Observe what causes you stress and anxiety. Visualize ways of overcoming or preventing your stress reactions. Either remove the stressors from your life or learn to change your responses. Often our attitudes and thoughts cause us stress. Make sure your solutions to stressful situations are realistic, achievable and uplifting.

Peace is the foundation of happiness and fulfillment. Peace is your natural state. You are a clam and creative being.

Thought - 29 Oct'09

Today's Thought.
Balance: The indication of balance in life is a sense of well-being, optimism and a clear conscience. The foundation for achieving this is to look after myself spiritually - making my mind peaceful, loving and thoughtful. Then I will instinctively know how much time to spend on my own well-being and how much on fulfilling other responsibilities. I can only give my best to others when I am myself at my best.

Enlightenment Thought.
Determination and Patience: Determination is the strength that will enable you to pass the barrier of useless thoughts in order to create positive thoughts and to be successful in whatever you wish. It comes from within and its partner is patience. Patience teaches you not to push but rather to wait and appreciate the game of life instead, knowing that nothing remains the same, and everything will change at some point.

Self improvement Thought.
Appreciation: Even if I don't mean to be critical, I often unconsciously home in on others' weaknesses and mistakes. The more I develop the habit of noticing goodness and only holding onto the good in others and in situations, the more my own sense of well-being will rise. When I continually think, "He/she is wrong", I create a barrier that prevents me from reaching my own goodness.

Keep a calm perspective.
Allow five to ten minutes for this creative visualization. Imagine your body is a cloud ---- insubstantial, misty, ethereal. Sense the lightness of your being. Let your cloud-self rise and float through the roof, beyond the treetops and up into limitless sky. Look down on your building, your street, your town. As you float higher, look down at the Earth. You see our planet, with its billions of inhabitants, each a precious member of your world family. Stay there for a few moments, enjoying the feeling of weightlessness. You are one small part of a huge interconnected community. Slowly and gently float to Earth and return to your body.

Today's Thought.
Teaching With Love: Teaching others is best done with love. Once the heart has understood the mind opens.

Enlightenment Thought.
Courage: Courage is to take a step forward into an area of difficulty without a solution in mind, but yet feeling that victory is ahead. It is going empty handed, but knowing that God's hand is stretched out to pull you.

Self improvement Thought.
No Tears: If you miss an opportunity, do not cloud your eyes with tears. Keep your vision clear so that you will not miss the next one.

Tune in to synchronicity.
Contact someone you’ve been thinking about. Thoughts do travel to their destination. When you think of someone it is likely they are thinking of you. Cultivate a subtle understanding – learn to read the signs. Go where you are guided. Follow your hunches and act on your impulses.

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Thought - 27 Oct'09

Today's Thought.
Grow and Move Forward: To help yourself grow and move forward, you need a healthy desire for change and a clear vision of your future aim. Add to this a 'can do' attitude together with lots of energy, time and determination. Now, shout it from the rooftops, - I can do it! - I can ......

Enlightenment Thought.
Coolness: Maintaining a state of inner calm protects me from becoming a slave to my emotions. It also helps me to keep a cool head when I see others becoming heated or angry. Coolness is not to be distant or uncaring; rather it requires that I develop the deeply caring nature of a peacemaker and serve others in the best possible way.

Self improvement Thought.
Feeling of Happiness: If I do everything with a feeling of happiness, there will be no task too difficult to perform.

Refresh my soul with two minutes of silence or meditation.
Stop everything mid-morning and take two minutes to savor deep peace. Take the phone off the hook, close your eyes and retreat from the world to the still, silent centre of your mind.

Keep your life in perspective by remembering who you are and what is important to you. Bring your inner peace to the world through your activities and interactions.

Today's Thought.
Deep:
Just as the highest tower needs a deep foundation, so too our higher thinking is based on going deep within.

Enlightenment Thought.
Illumination:
The soul - that is the true self - is not originally sinful, it is originally good. To be on the spiritual path means we will experience this goodness. When this precious energy is experienced, there is a leap of consciousness. In history this leap has been known as illumination. Illumination is the leap to new insight that gives confidence and hope. Then there is more reality in life and, consequently, more happiness. We are renewed.

Self improvement Thought.
Divine Help:
Many times people report the feeling of divine help and strength when they come close to breaking point. Actually divine help is always there, but I am usually so busy doing things in my own little way that I only look for it when I face absolute defeat. The tranquil nature of enlightened souls comes from their ability to take God's help constantly. A state of true surrender will lead to the feeling of victory in everything I do.

Value people whose nature is the opposite of mine.
Reverse the tendency to belittle or criticize those whose nature is the opposite of yours. To overcome your frustration with them, acknowledge how they complement your shortcomings, if your talent is to see the big picture, who pays attention to the small details? Dynamism is balanced by gentleness, frankness by subtlety.

Diversity is nature’s survival mechanism. Imagine if the whole world was exactly like you. The contrasts and differences between us give rise to creation and invention. Embrace the differences in others and increase your capacity for love and acceptance.

Do It Now!:
The good you have been thinking of doing - do it now. Who knows what tomorrow may bring. So, don't wait. Do it while you can. Do it now.


Write a piece of poetry for myself
Use your own poetic structure, rhyme and grammar and no one else’s. Let the poem evoke a moment in time, a person, an event, an impression or a feeling. Put yourself in a creative space and indulge in the intensity of the experience. This poem is for you alone.

Live in full and exquisite color. Find the sacred in the ordinary. Give a voice to the deep and meaningful part of yourself. Rejoice in your insights.

Today's Thought.
My Own Happiness and Peace:
Once I have learnt to generate my own happiness and peace, there is nothing I cannot handle.


Enlightenment Thought.

Manners:
A person of wisdom and spirituality has very beautiful manners that have grown from genuine respect and love for the whole of humanity. Manners in this sense have nothing to do with culture or education: it is simply a question of humility. When we are at the receiving end of such manners, we feel that some deeper part of us has been honored. In fact, none of us deserves anything less.

Self improvement Thought.
Peace:
Anger spoils the beauty of the soul, peace regains it.


Simply Let go.

It’s great to be in control, and it’s great to let go. Let go of your expectations and fixed ideas about how things should be done. Don’t try to force things to happen. Just do as much as you can, then step back and see what takes shape. If you feel responsible for someone else’s moods or emotions let these feelings go


Relax and allow new influences and options to emerge. Let your destiny steer you.

Today's Thought.
Depths of Silence: Practice going into the depths of silence. Make it your hobby and see how much you enjoy it. Any tiredness of the soul will then be removed. We will feel that we are able to remain carefree and restful. When the soul is tired it is restless and there is a lot of worry; we think I have to do this and that. All I really have to do is to remain peaceful and there will be the feeling that everything will be OK.

Enlightenment Thought.
Amazed: You will be amazed what comes from your heart when you make a little effort with your head

Self improvement Thought.
Self-respect: Self-respect is not only a matter of what you are doing in your life, but also of how you are doing it. It requires that you bring goodness and virtue into each thought, feeling, word and action.

Make a list of someone else's best qualities and virtues.
Imagine you've been asked to speak at a special occasion in celebration of someone else's life. Invite others to help you compile the list. Write their virtues out beautifully to make an uplifting gift.

Instill in yourself the habit of seeing the best in everyone. Focus on the positive and help others to be the best they can.

Today's Thought.
Personal Audit: At the end of each day, carry out a personal audit: work out what you did well and think about what you could have done differently.

Enlightenment Thought.
Grateful: If I am grateful for the good I already have, I attract more good into my life. But, if I am ungrateful, then I tend to shut myself off from some of the good that might otherwise come my way.

Self improvement Thought.
Forgiveness: Why is it hard to forgive others? Usually because we believe that they are 90% to blame for the problem, that I am not as bad as they are. So I start to carry the load of other people's actions. I may have a sense of correction, of injustice: 'I know I am right', 'That is not fair'. But if I start to forgive from the heart, sincerely, then this kind of feeling and attitude begins to dissolve. If I remain humble, this forgiveness will bring me closer to others. Then I do not carry regrets or anger, I just let go and remain light.

Accept that people are inconsistent.
Why write someone off because they have done something mean-spirited or made a mistake? Embrace all the shades of their personality and behavior. You have inconsistencies too. Be kind and generous with your judgments.

Build relationships that endure. Let go of resentments. Be at peace with yourself and the world, and learn to love unconditionally.

Thought - 19 Oct'09

Today's Thought.
Who are you? :
Goals offer structure and motivation but are you aware of your own value without those goals? Who are you without goals?.

Enlightenment Thought.
By developing an inward focus to your life, you develop the power to act in line with your true, positive nature.

Self improvement Thought.
Perfection:
May you make your thinking, speaking and doing equal, and become complete and perfect. In order to become perfect, your highest and most elevated thoughts should be expressed in word and in action.

Empower someone through words of encouragement.
Boost someone’s confidence through positive feedback--- motivate, inspire, give courage, remove doubts, reassure them of their capacity to succeed. Praise them for their efforts. Play the role of mentor.

Encouragement is an easy form of giving. Rather than doing a task for someone, encourage them to do it for themselves.

Forget All Waste:
Forget all waste things from the past. To remember everything is to make your mind a dustbin.

When this precious energy is experienced, there is a leap of consciousness. In history this leap has been known as illumination. Illumination is the leap to new insight that gives confidence and hope. Then there is more reality in life and, consequently, more happiness. We are renewed.

Self improvement Thought.
Self Progress:
You are your own greatest asset. Put your time and energy into training, improving and encouraging yourself. Then there will be progress. Self progress can take place when you use all of your existing resources to enable self change.

Acknowledge that I am doing the best I can right now.
From time to time there will be circumstances that are beyond your control. It’s important to recognize and accept this fact and stay calm. Sometimes all you can do is just hang in there. Everything changes in its own time.

Break the cycle of self-criticism. Curb your desire for perfection, and be reasonable about what you expect of yourself. Become compassionate and understanding of yourself and others.

Thought - 15 Oct'09

Today's Thought.
When love walks into your life, it is like a laser beam passing across your being. The light restores beauty and value, even if what is visible at first glance is less than beautiful. Meditation is an invitation to light. Meditation is not complicated. It simply is a means of teaching your mind to think in a different way.

Enlightenment Thought.
The power of silence can bring peace to any situation. The instruments for the power of silence are pure thoughts and pure feelings. We can give others an experience with the power of our silence. When we understand and experience the power of silence we will become more powerful. We will then be able to experience peace that will naturally spread to others too. When we have to correct someone in any situation we first need to remind ourselves that words will not work but silence based on pure feelings and love will surely work. When we accept the person as he is with love we will be able to bring about a change in him. The lesser we talk the more the peace that is created.


Self improvement Thought.

If you know a little of yourself, you will have realized that you are more than meets your eyes in the mirror in the morning. What you see is not what you are. You see the form not the content, the body not the soul, the matter not the mind. In quiet and profound moments, we innately know that is true. But we forget. The world tells us and wants us to believe that we are what we see - and we take the easy way out. We believe. That's why the awakening of spirit and the flowering of our spirituality (nothing to do with religion) means we have to keep reminding ourselves, a hundred times a day, I am a soul - not a body, I am an eternal spirit - not a perishable piece of meat. I am quality, not quantity. I am. Otherwise, freedom is not possible. And if we are not free, in the deepest space inside our own being, we cannot be truly happy.


Connect with my true feelings about others.

Honor your innermost thoughts and feelings and bring them forth into your full awareness. Ask yourself if you are being the most loving person you can be. Is this really what you think and feel, or have you adopted the habits of your family or friends? Dare to be you. Learn to be less critical and judgmental, and become more loving and kind.

Positive Vision:
Our thoughts and feelings can so easily be influenced by how we perceive others. If we make a firm choice to always keep a positive vision of those around us, then we will enjoy better relationships.

Enlightenment Thought.
Mirror:
A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror.

Self improvement Thought.
Forgiveness:
Rather than being quick to judge, be quick to forgive.

Transform my unkind thoughts about another person.
This is the greatest alchemy! Each of us learns about life at our own pace, though our own experiences. Instead of condemning another’s choices put yourself in their shoes. They have good reasons for their choices and the lessons they need to learn are not yours.

Thoughts reach their target so take care. You cannot change anyone else; you can only change yourself.

Thought - 13 Oct'09

Today's Thought.
Live Now:
The past is history, so let it go. The future is a mystery, so let it come. The present is this moment now - a gift. To be truly in the present today, it is useful to release all our fears (based on the past) and our worries (imagined futures) - this is the work of someone who truly wants to break free from the stuff of past yesterdays and speculative tomorrows. It begins simply - with awareness. See the fears, see the worries, look at them in the face, watch them come and go. Treat them like children on their way out to play. Let them go. There is only now - even if we are in planning mode, stay in the present and plan tomorrow, it's when we drift into tomorrow with our imagination that we experience loss of this present moment.


Enlightenment Thought.

Coolness:
Maintaining a state of inner calmness protects me from becoming a slave to my emotions. It also helps me to keep a cool head when I see others becoming heated or angry. Coolness is not to be distant or uncaring; rather it requires that I develop the deeply caring nature of a peacemaker and serve others in the best possible way.


Self improvement Thought.

Virtues:
Sweetness is the taste of all virtues. Patience is the fortress of all virtues. Cheerfulness is the evidence of all virtues.


Put a full stop on the past.

Whatever happened cannot be changed; it is now part of your history. Your past has shaped you and brought you to this moment. Cast from your mind phrases such as 'I should have' , ' why didn't I' and 'if only'. Accept the lessons you have learnt from past choices.


Disentangle yourself from regret, shame and guilt. Shake off the past and move forward with peace of mind.

Thought - 12 Oct'09

Today's Thought.
Ego:
Ego is not just having a big head. Ego is present every time you feel any kind of fear, or hear yourself saying, "That's mine!". The truth tells us that nothing is 'mine' or 'yours', we are all trustees. So where there is ego, there is attachment, and where there is attachment there is fear, and where there is fear there cannot be love. Detach from everything, and you will banish ego, fear will be no more, only then can true love return, and our oldest friend happiness will feel it is then safe to make a re-appearance in your life.


Enlightenment Thought.

The Energy Returns:
If you speak badly of others, the negative energy that you put out into the universe, will return to you. The same is true of positive energy.


Self improvement Thought.

Peace:
Do not look for peace outside, for it lies within the soul.


What I was like as child and compare myself now.

We all seek harmony. Communicate your feelings. Before you speak, choose the right environment, and rehearse what you want to say. Be open and honest. Work out how far you are prepared to go in the interests of good relations, then go a step further. Be generous and good-hearted.


A small skirmish can escalate into a major battle. Address misunderstandings immediately to conserve energy, prevent conflict and enhance your relationships.

Something Right:
Instead of losing sleep over past mistakes, let me get busy doing something right.

Enlightenment Thought.
Humility: Real humility is rare because to have it you have to want nothing, yet when you have it you get everything.

Self improvement Thought.
True Happiness: There is no nourishment like happiness - it's an elixir. There is no sickness like sorrow - it's a poison. The experience of true happiness cures the sickness of sorrow. A cheerful face goes a long way towards making everything better!

Give something away.
Pass on an item you no longer use or give away an object you value highly. Creating an empty space invites the new. You do not truly own anything, so practice being a trustee of your possessions. Be generous and have faith that you will receive what you need.
