Thought - 30 Nov'09

Today's Thought.
Be yourself, be natural. It is far easier than pretending to be someone else.

Enlightenment Thought.
Silence gives rest to the mind and this means giving rest to the body. Sometimes rest is the only medicine needed.

Self improvement Thought.
Mercy means to give support to the ones who are helpless.

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. But real mercy is that which gives support through the positive state of one's mind. The more there is the feeling of happiness, others too can be brought to that state of happiness and joy.

Experience:
When I am able to remain happy even in negative situations, I am able to maintain my internal state of calm. And this is the best frame of mind where I am able to see things objectively and in a detached way and I am able to make the right decisions. So I find myself becoming a source of support.

Today's Thought.
The bigger your heart is, the more it feels that the whole world belongs to you.

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
When something goes wrong we immediately begin to look for excuses why that mistake happened. This finishes our power of realization and we will not be able to recognize our own mistake. Then we will not be able to work at improving ourselves and we will not be able to bring any transformation.

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.

The virtues of honesty and courage bring success.

Expression:
The one who is courageous is never deterred by challenges, but moves on towards success. Combined with courage, is the virtue of honesty which allows one to be consistent, sincere and true in the efforts put in. So success comes with proper effort and there is also humility visible in such a person.

Experience:
When I am courageous, but at the same time honest in my efforts that I put in for achieving success, I'll never have ego. I will be able to get the cooperation and good will of all, and especially the protection and the help of God. I will find myself moving slowly towards success with everything I do.

Thought - 25 Nov'09

Today's Thought.
It is easy to say something, but it takes effort to do it. Demonstrate what you wish to achieve by doing it yourself before telling others to do it.

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.

Thought - 20 Nov'09

Today's Thought.
Today is a day of new opportunities. Let me not lose them by dwelling on the past.

Enlightenment Thought.
It only takes on ounce of courage to remove a ton of distress.

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.

Thought - 18 Nov'09

Today's Thought.
As soon as you remember your true self, restoration of your inner strength occurs and you return to a place of harmony.

Enlightenment Thought.
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.

Thought - 17 Nov'09

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.

Today's Thought.
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.

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.

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.

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.

Thought - 04 Nov'09

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.
