Summer’s End

        Summer, it’s a time of abundance, to enjoy the summer sun, flowers and fruits … but, summer, like everything else, doesn’t last forever. If summer was forever, all the energy and potential would reach its limits and inertia would set in. And so slowly but surely, the cycle turns; everything moves on. Everything has it’s own time; it’s own season. Remember, the end of something good, means the start of something also good. All you have to do is be connected and in tune with the natural flow of nature’s energies. Trust Many believe it is ignorant to trust the innate goodness of human beings, because you will be taken for a ride. But won’t this mistrust gradually affect my own character and perception of life? Is it worth being insecure at every step just because others are dishonest? It is only when I have unreasonable expectations of others that I get disappointed with their inability to reciprocate my love and trust. God loves me irrespective of whether I am worthy of His love. His faith in me is so pure and powerful that it transforms me. Let me give as God gives; let me trust as God trusts. Overcoming Possessiveness And Complexes In Close Relationships  In yesterday’s message, we talked about ailments like possessiveness and complexes existing in our family relationships today. Today we explain how meditation can cure these ailments with much ease. As I practice meditation, which is nothing but a practical exercise of experiencing soul consciousness, I carry that experience into my relationships. While interacting with each one of my closest of relations, I start...

Belief Power

        If you are ready to alter some of the current outcomes in your life then you will need to start with your beliefs. There are many categories. First there are ‘fatal beliefs’ – “I can’t, I’m not able, I never will.” These are the beliefs we have about ourselves, that set the boundaries and limitations of ourselves. Then there are ‘blocker beliefs’ – “My kid is stupid…my boss is an idiot…did you see that crazy person?” These are beliefs about others and, for however long they last, they block the flow of energy in a relationship. They are bricks in the walls we build between each other. Then there are ‘survival beliefs’ – “Get what you can while you can….there is not enough to go around…you have to look after number one.” These beliefs would have us live in fear and anxiety, otherwise known as insecurity. We can choose our beliefs. But first we may have to unchoose the ones that have crept in over the years, now living comfortably ‘below stairs’ and seem to be part of our inner furniture. If you want different outcomes in your life, change your beliefs first. Clean up down stairs!! Loving Relationships Who doesn’t appreciate loving relationships? The soul is nourished when there is mutual affection and regard between family and friends. Love of course is built on trust but before I establish secure relationships with others, there are two major entities I have to face everyday: ‘Myself’ and ‘God.’ Am I honest with my inner conscience and my God? When the intellect is clean of falsehood, I...

Impact

            Make every thought, word and deed such that the impact gives someone courage and zeal and Mutual Cooperation When there is a task to be done we usually want to do it all alone. We look for someone who can help us, but we are not really able to create an environment of mutual cooperation. So we find ourselves doing the task all by ourselves and hence find ourselves alone. So we find that even a task which is not so difficult takes a lot of energy and thoughts. We might also end up having negative thoughts when we don’t experience the help that we should from others. When we are able to recognize and use each and everyone’s specialties for the success of a task, we are able to inspire cooperation in others. This will enable them too to learn the beauty of cooperation. Then there is automatically an environment of learning, where each and everyone make efforts to learn from what the other person has. There is then no negativity due to unfulfilled expectations, but there is absorption of positivity, making us richer. The Benefits Of Togetherness Over Isolation Nowadays, there are more and more people who are choosing to live alone. Perhaps the reason for that are experiences in the past of pain, peacelessness, rejection, disappointment or failure when living together, in a relationship or even more than one relationship. As a result, the preference for living alone sets inside them. Perhaps, it is their alternative search for peace, happiness and success that leads them to make this decision. Also,...

Sweet Comments

    Is your sweetness superficial? Commenting on things superficially, that is, saying something is good without understanding if it really is – is false sweetness. Words based on the truth and those spoken from the heart hold real sweetness. Keep it real. Be genuine. Be sweet. Taking Responsibility Very often I find myself leaving things to chance or to people. I tend to take care of big things and become careless in little things. When I leave things for others to take care and if they don’t do it, I become disappointed – even if I have not delegated the task to be done. When I recognize the fact that I am fully responsible for the task at hand, both the big things and the little ones to be done, I’ll never be careless. I’ll make it a point to take care of every little aspect to the end. This is what will bring accuracy in my tasks and also enables me to delegate the work well. The Eternal World Cycle This world is a vast amphitheatre of action in which souls, in their respective bodies, play their various parts. Planet Earth exists in an extremely tiny portion of the physical universe and is governed by well-defined physical, chemical and biological laws. In India, the world, which we inhabit, is called karma kshetra (the field of action), because it is here that we sow the seeds of actions and reap their fruits. It is here that the soul takes on flesh and bones and expresses the role that it has hidden within itself, causing variations in the material environment. The...

Something to Give

        Today, make sure whoever you come into contact with doesn’t go away empty handed. They should feel that they’ve gained something from the interaction. Find something to share that will benefit them and make them feel better. It doesn’t have to be a physical object, it could be an encouraging word, a solution or even a positive thought or a good wish. Look Within Usually, when in negative situations, we tend to search for happiness outside. We either try to find a temporary source of happiness, a diversion (which is more evasion) or we try to move away from that situation. But this only postpones the dissatisfaction for some time. Instead of trying to find happiness outside (which is anyway temporary), we need to look within. We need to find what really nourishes the spirit and gives us life. When we find our inner source of happiness, it remains stable and unchanging even in the most chaotic conditions. Taking Responsibility, Overcoming Guilt  If there are people or situations that lead you to fall over the same stone i.e. they lead you to make the same mistake, which was committed earlier, again, perhaps you will have to avoid them for a few days or a time, until you have strengthened yourself and have the inner security that they will not influence you. This is not running away; it is wise knowing your weaknesses and knowing that to get into similar situations with the same people is only to repeat the same errors and to worsen your wellbeing and that of the other. Trust in yourself. You can overcome...

The Right Time

      You cannot make yourself arrive faster than your mode of transport. You cannot control what gets in the way… Often, all you can do is have faith and believe that everything happens in the right way at the right time… Positive Present We find we are becoming more and more negative with each passing day, as the inputs of negativity from all sides in on its rise. Our normal conversations and interactions are based on this negativity. So without our conscious knowledge, we tend to become negative. It is important for us to change the theme of conversation that we have with others, and start talking about what life gives us. It gives us so much that goes unnoticed. So we need to consciously change this so that it creates an environment of hope and enthusiasm for the future, also giving us a more positive view of the present reality. The Consciousness Switchover While we have explained in many of our past messages what body consciousness or attachment to physicality is and how it leads to a creation of lot many different types and shades of vices or weaknesses which tend to creep into our sanskaras, thoughts, feelings, attitudes, words, actions, etc. as a result of which we lose access to our pure, positive inherent nature; another process of subtle attachment to physicality that we get drawn into regularly, which leads to the same result, but on a more subtle level, is karma or action consciousness where there is no over consciousness of the physical body but one gets so engrossed in the role one is playing that one...

Listening to Your Conscience

            Our conscience is our in-built awareness of what’s true and what the ‘right’ thing to do is. When we do the ‘wrong thing,’ and go against our conscience, our conscience will nudge us and remind us that we’re our of alignment without truth. At this point, we can listen to our conscience and re-orientate ourselves. There are times we may ignore it or just not hear it because it’s drowned out by all that noise in our heads. Next time before you jump into action, just – shhh! – become quiet and listen to your conscience to discover what its saying. Respond It is easy to speak negatively when we do not like something about someone. We first react to them in our mind and so tend to get angry. Our words and behaviour would then naturally be negative and insulting too. This further widens the gap and breaks the relationship. When someone does something undesired, we first need to try and understand his behaviour. Every person has a reason to behave the way he does. If we can’t understand at that time, we at least need to give it time. The more we react to the other person and his behaviour, the greater the distance that is created. So we need to begin the first step of positivity by recognizing some positivity in him. Resisting False Attractions In Actions All that glitters (shines) is not gold. Life presents you with many illusionary scenes, scenes in which what may be visible may not be the truth. These scenes cause desires to be born...

Cherished Soul

      Greet life with enthusiasm and confidence by constantly maintaining the awareness of how cherished you are. Joy in Giving We usually expect from others and rarely think of giving. We are also not able to give unconditionally. We normally think of what we are going to get out of giving. So we lose the joy of giving. We usually don’t get what we expect and when we don’t, we usually experience negative feelings. There is true joy in giving. When we find someone in negativity and if we are able to recognize what they need, we can give. When we give we are able to have the satisfaction of giving. This enables us to get in touch with our innate qualities and we are able to use these qualities for the benefit of everyone. Anger Management Keep a daily chart for one week for the questions below, the answers to which will help you manage emotions of anger, irritation, frustration, etc. more effectively.

Talking to the Self

When you talk to yourself in your mind, which self do you address? And how? Usually people do not talk to their divinity, but to the most superficial aspects of their everyday personality. And often its a stream of fears, complaints and mindless repetition of old things. If we talked that way to another human being, we would have to apologise. Learning to talk properly to the self is a spiritual endeavour. Thoughts from the past and worries about the future do not create good conversation. Instead learn to talk to your mind as if it were a child. Talk to it with love. If you just force a child to sit down, he won’t. A good mother knows how to prompt her child into doing what she wants. Be a good mother to your mind, teach it good, positive thoughts so that when you tell it to sit quietly, it will. Love your mind. Stay happy. The method for easy progress is to claim the blessings of all. Sometimes we find ourselves making a lot of effort and putting in a lot of energy for getting something done. Yet we find that the results are not according to the efforts that we have put in. We then begin to wonder it happens so. To be able to give happiness to those around is to increase the speed of my progress. For this I need to pay special attention to keep giving happiness and not giving sorrow to those around me. This brings me their blessings and these subtle wishes bring me happiness and success easily. Seeing Yourself In...
