Respectful Assertiveness

When a conversation becomes heated, can you respond warmly?  When giving your opinion, can you express yourself without anxiety? Assertiveness is our ability to convey thoughts and feelings in ways that can be clearly heard; whilst maintaining our personal integrity, as well as respect for others. 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. Message for the day To use one value with commitment is to guarantee the use of all values. In Spiritual Service, Brahma...

Heal Yourself

  The deepest wounds we all carry are locked in our subconscious (out of our awareness). Deep memories and subtle impressions, from unfinished experience, rooted in the past. The pain from those wounds comes to revisit, to block and paralyze us in the moment called now. We all know it comes without warning – “Why am I feeling this way, I didn’t mean to do that, I don’t know what made me say that.” Healing does not mean finding and treating every single inner scar which send it message to haunt us. It means going even deeper, past those wounds, beyond those distant memories and recording of unfinished business, to the core of our self, to the heart of our spirit, where we find the light and warmth of our own core qualities of love and peace. They are eternally present within us they are what we need to heal all our inner wounds. That’s why this kind of deep healing is called spirituality and not therapy. Purity Purity of spirit is a beautiful state of being. It comes when we are willing to open our soul completely to the pure energy of God and let all the vestiges of negativity with us be gradually washed away. As purity increases, thoughts become simpler, fewer and infused with love and compassion for everyone we meet. Pure thoughts have remarkable power. Plans made in such a state of benevolence are blessed with success. Radiating Good Wishes (Meditation) You need to get back your inner power by elevating your awareness and connecting with the Supreme Soul (God). In this way you can...

Determined Thoughts

  Before starting any task, first of all, sow the seed of a determined thought. Especially if you have self-doubts or feel that the task is too difficult for you, think: ‘I can do it.’ ‘I am capable.’ ‘Anything is possible if I put my mind to it.’ Determination is the key to success. So, use that determined thought to propel you forward. Eliminate Wastage When the auditors are coming, everyone is on their toes. It is time to give account of what has gone on. All the details we regarded as unimportant before now are most vital. It is easy to perform action but when it is time to give an account for those actions, unless we have done our best at all times, there is not a good feeling. To do our duty to ourselves, our country and to God is a good thing. To do our best at all times brings a blessing of peace of mind. Useless expenditure and wastage prevents us from doing our best. Even if we do not value materials, energy and time, the fact remains that they are valuable and sooner o later an account has to be given one way or the other. We may feel that no one is aware of our wastage. Accounts are kept not only in books but in the Laws of the Universe. Keep a check on yourself daily and you will find ways to eliminate wastage. The After Effects Of Anger If realized deeply, it’s alright to conclude that anger destroys. If it doesn’t destroy our physical body (that too it manages to do...

Inner Beauty

    Wow…that’s beautiful!” Is either a cry or a thought when faced with the mountain sunset, a spectacular view or a well formed man or woman. But where is the beauty, where is the appreciation of beauty, where is the ability to discern beauty? It is within our own consciousness. For the essence of who and what we are, is beauty itself. The essence of beauty is not found in the body, a face or a mountain – they only stir the essence of beauty within our own spirit. And that beauty is not only something we taste within ourselves, but it emerges in our character as virtue, and in our life as care. For what is virtue, but love in action? The next time you say, “That’s beautiful!” know that you speak of yourself, and it is you who are beautiful. Always were, always will be. Inner Landscape The ability to enjoy one’s own company is one of the greatest gifts life has to offer. `Learning to turn our thoughts away from all our responsibilities at the day’s end and take our mind into a state of peace and benevolence enables us to carry greater and greater loads without feeling burdened. When our inner landscape is full of beautiful thoughts, everything we do is a pleasure. Gently, we calm down chaotic situations and offer solace to troubled minds. The Five Primary Qualities The soul has five primary qualities; we could say they are the primary colours of humanity with which we paint the picture of our lives. They are: Peace This is the original quality of the...
