Creative Writing

    Put yourself in a creative space and make time to write. Write poetry, fiction, anything. You don’t have to write for anyone, just write for yourself. Don’t let the rules of language become a barrier. Evoke a moment in time, a person, an event, an impression, a feeling, an insight. Give voice to the deep and meaningful part of yourself. Be creative, be honest, be brave and write. Personal growth When someone says something that I don’t like, I usually see the other person’s negativity and continue to find fault with him. This is usually because I am not able to understand the particular situation. I need to recognize the fact that people in my life are there for a reason and I can learn from everything that happens through my interactions with them. Recognizing this fact will stop me from blaming others and start using each teaching for my own personal growth. Internal And External Attachments Attachment can be on two levels – either internal or external. Some common examples of external attachments are attachments to: * people, * objects, * your physical body, * your position or role in your family, society or in your professional field, * money, * places, * physical comfort/comforts, * the way you look or dress up or carry yourself or your physical personality in general, * a particular skill/skills, * a particular interest or hobby like watching movies, online social networking, etc. * your routine or a certain way of working at home or at the workplace, * respect from others, * how people see you or behave with you or what they think...

Walk in your own shoes

    Would you walk a mile in someone else’s shoes in order to understand them – where they’re coming from and where they’re going? But can we really understand others? We can keep trying, but at the same time remember, someone else’s shoes will not always fit. To understand others better, we have to understand ourselves and walk in our own shoes. Understand who we are, where we’re coming from and where we’re going. Consciousness  Sometimes, while doing even a special task, our consciousness tends to become ordinary because of negative feelings for the self or others. Such thoughts make even a special task into an ordinary one. So what has to be done in a beautiful way is done in a very ordinary way. So there is a tendency to just perform action and finish the task at hand, which does not bring specialty and accuracy as much as it should. We need to understand that as is the consciousness, so is the feeling behind the task, and therefore its quality. When we are able to start each task with a special consciousness, like “I am victorious”, or “I am powerful” or “this task is for the benefit of all”, we are able to experience the specialty of doing the task. We are also able to increase our state of self-respect, whatever the task or however simple it maybe. Self Respect Self-respect depends on knowing who I am, knowing my eternal (ageless), spiritual self. When I have found that sense of spiritual identity, I feel I have a right to be here, to exist. Without the spiritual...

Readiness

  Worrying about how everything will get done or whether I am capable of doing it limits my ability to respond to challenges considerably. The less I think about doing something, the faster I just get on with it, the fewer problems I cause myself. Good planning is always helpful, but time spent fretting and just procrastinating is a major drain on my energy. The more willing I am to respond positively to opportunities the more my capacity will grow. Seeing Specialties When we come into contact with others, it is easy to see their negativity or weaknesses. Then through our words and attitude, we repeatedly remind them of their weaknesses. So we tend to become a reminder for others for their own negativity. This in turn negatively influences our every interaction with others. Making others aware of their specialties and subtly encouraging them to use these specialties is a great help that we can do for others. When we are able to give this unique help and cooperation, we not only find benefit for others, but we are also able to get the good wishes of others. Even others naturally become positive with our positive attitude. Freeing Oneself from Hatred  To free yourself from hatred, you will have to take four important steps: 1. Understand that hate is not healthy. When you have a feeling of loss you feel sad. This feeling of sadness, because of the situation, generally gets created inside you before the feeling of hate, anger or frustration. Understand your emotions by observing them closely. 2. Accept that you are responsible for your own rage....

Like a Torchbearer

    Like the torchbearers, carry a flame of light wherever you go. To carry the flame is, to let the light shine through your smile. Pass the torch onto everyone you meet, because a smile makes everything light, and makes everyone feel better. Stubbornness When someone disbelieves me I usually tend to argue back and try to prove my point to the others but find that I am not able to convince them. Yet I find that the more I talk the less I am listened to. And I only end up getting frustrated. When someone challenges the truth of my words, I need to check within myself if there is something that I can correct or learn. When I learn to do this, instead of being stubborn with what I have to say or blaming others, I find it easy to tolerate.   The Four Pillars Of A Spiritual Lifestyle – Achieving A Balance A balanced and fulfilling spiritual life is like a table. It stands on four legs and if one leg is shorter than the others then both balance and equilibrium will be difficult. The four legs or pillars of a spiritual life are given below in the form of four subjects. If any of the subjects is not a part of our lives or is a part of our life, but not to as great an extent as the others, then the overall balance of our spiritual life will be affected adversely (negatively). 1. Daily spiritual study (knowledge or gyan) Daily spiritual study provides the right quality of nourishment for our mind and intellect, the...

Choices

Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It’s your choice how you live life. Practice Most of the times, theory and practice become two different things in our lives. We know a lot of things, but we do not bring that into our practical lives. We only tend to talk about it to those around. So our valuable thoughts are wasted, creating a habit of wastage. We have to make effort for ourselves. We need to start applying into practice what is good and worthy. The first step is to understand. Having understood we need to sustain these thoughts by bringing them to action. Not only will our lives be enriched, but also there will be power in every thought of ours. Going Beyond False Identifications The more I identify with the physical factors of my life, the more I become a prisoner to my destiny or the various up and downs of my life. E.g. if my self-respect is attached to my beautiful new car, how will I feel about myself when the car becomes old and its beauty and shine reduce? Or if I my car is stolen or gets immensely damaged in a road accident? Then, I shall find myself in an identity crisis. The same will be true if my business or job is everything to me. If one day, I am in a good financial state and...

Rise above the Noise

  We’re surrounded by noise. Then there’s our noisy thought – thinking head that never seems to cease. Raise your focus out of the noise and float effortlessly above it all! Rise above the noise to enjoy inner peace. Focus on your inner peace and the noise in your thought-thinking head will subside. Speak Less We learn a lot about someone’s personality simply by listening to them. On a gross level it reveals a person’s background, education, intelligence, wittiness etc. However it also brings to light one’s attitude and sanskars (personality traits): How much do we live in the past or future and not the present, do we appreciate the positive aspects in situations and people, are our words spoken with arrogance or humility, does my lax nature make me speak inappropriately or does my intellect first judge the situation, time, person, and consequences before I allow words to emerge? It pays to ‘Speak Less, Speak Slowly and Speak Sweetly’ as it creates a place for me in other’s hearts in no time. Understanding The Birth Rebirth Cycle  We subconsciously know that we are souls. Birth, life and death are just stages in existence. In fact all natural processes can be found to have a beginning,  a middle, an end and a new beginning to continue the cycle. The soul takes a bodily form, gives life to it and after a period of time, long or short, leaves it and takes another suited to the continuation of its role. As long as the soul is in the body, the body grows like a plant from baby to child, youth to...

Work Well

  Work is only work if you prefer to be somewhere else. Work tends to be a negative perception of a task which we reluctantly approach. Work is only labour when we forget to see our life as it truly is – an opportunity to be creative, enrich others and be enriched ourselves. When we are able to see work in this way, we find something called enthusiasm inside. When we are enthusiastic we work well and we are valued. We are used as a role model. When we work well it is much easier to say no when we need to, for we know our own value, and we are not dependent on others’ approval to feel good about ourselves. When we put love and enthusiasm into what we do, it rebounds in the form of opportunities and blessings, two of the most important ingredients of a truly wealthy life.   Attention to Expression Our words can either spiritually sustain souls or damage their self-esteem. Whether we are talking about someone’s faults or weaknesses, passing comments on a situation that does not concern us, or giving private information we create an atmosphere that could suffocate any soul in the vicinity and reduce chances of improvement or productivity. Remember that it’s very difficult to trust someone who speaks without thinking of the consequences. We can save a lot of time and energy by paying attention to how we interact and express ourselves in relationships. Understanding The Birth Rebirth Cycle The realization of the self as a soul, an eternal (always existing) energy, naturally leads to the following questions: *...

Inborn Personality and Behaviour.

Dr.William Moulton Marston was a psychologist and an anthropologer who afte rstudying thousands of human behaviors and their personalities,developed the concept of DISC profile.After many years of research he submitted thesis in late 1920’s which divides the human personalities into 4 categories i.e.D for Dominant,I for Influential,S for Steady and C for Compliant (or DISC for short).DISC profile has been in use for many years for multiple purposes like sales,marketing,management,HR,alliances etc.Over the years,different versions of the same theory have been developed including BEST(Bold-Expressive-  SympatheticTechnical).Later on another scientist,Dr.Gary Couture added bird profiling to the same theory-Eagle,Peacock,Dove and Owl and it became very popular worldwide. Eagles are dominant having an eye on targets and opportunities,they are task-oriented.Such individuals are stimulated by challenges and are known to be decisive,direct,blunt and often even often stubborn.Eagles are natural achievers.They are go-getters and opportunists and could sometimes also be insensitive to others’ needs.One of the biggest risks with these people is that they may lose sight of the big picture. Peacocks are individuals who love to talk; they enjoy being the center of attention, are often passionate and enthusiastic. They are happy go lucky and extremely optimistic. Peacock styled personalities are often accused of talking too much, and one of their biggest weaknesses is that they aren’t good with detail and time-management. The Dove personality individuals are people-oriented,loyal,friendly,extremely diligent and hardworking.They are great teamplayers.They tend to avoid changes,conflict or confrontation,they avoid taking risk and aren’t really overly assertive.They are possessive by nature;for them relationships come first and take precedence over everything else including tasks.Even after they have decided, they tend to take time to execute...
