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...

An Angel’s Face

An angel’s face is still because there are no lies inside.   Truth makes it a straight, simple face whose beauty lies not in its form but in the feeling it gives you. Where there is peace there is patience. My usual reactions to the stimuli around me are programmed, so I tend to be impulsive or react quickly to situations, I don’t give myself time to think or understand. Because of this lack of patience I lose out on many things and I don’t realise that I am losing out too. At all times I need to make a conscious effort to keep my mind peaceful and calm, more so when there is a difficult situation. With this state of mind I am able to deal with situations patiently because peace brings power which in turn brings patience. Taming (Conquering) The Mind  In ancient times, the mind was understood to be extremely difficult to control. It was said to be like the wind: you could never catch it, or hold it – it went where it wished and no human being could become its master. In other instances, it was said that the mind was like an elephant: extremely powerful but equally gentle and patient, able to do a lot of work for its master. However, when an elephant turns wild, its gentleness and patience completely disappear and it destroys and damages everything in its path. When the mind is under stress, it resembles a wild elephant; it has no control and cannot be controlled. Taming the mind is regarded as a great art requiring time, attention, practice and, above...

Humility Is Greatness

      Just as a tree that is full of fruit bows down for others to take the fruit, one who is humble will always live in self respect and treat others with respect. Inner Stability The normal reaction for anyone in a situation where there is chaos and confusion is to react with inner confusion too. This confusion actually further magnifies the negativity of the situation due to which I am not able to take the right decisions. When I am in a chaotic situation, the first thing I need to do is to check my own inner stability. Even if there is negativity in the situation I need to keep my mind free from any kind of fear, tension or confusion and I will be able to give my best in the situation. The Search For Happiness And A Beautiful Relationship Throughout history, human beings have desired and searched for two things, happiness and a perfect loveful and beautiful relationship. It is interesting to realize that you cannot search for what, you have not already had or known. In other words, we search for these two things because inside us we have a deep subconscious memory of the original, perfect and eternal relationship with our Friend, Guide and Parent, the One remembered as God, Allah, Ishwar, etc. It is only when we restore our relationship with this Being is that we can experience true happiness or bliss. Bliss is the highest form of spiritual happiness we can experience. It is experienced only when we are free of all attachment, when we no longer identify wrongly with anything physical and when our...

Paint a little Peace

    Values are those things, both tangible and intangible, which we care about the most. Most of us demonstrate by our actions that our values are mostly tangible or material. But if we were to reflect for a moment we might find that what we truly value is very intangible. Love, peace and happiness are our deepest values whether we are aware of it or not. So let’s experiment. If peace is something you value, then how will you live peacefully today. You experience what you live. So if you want peace in your life…give it and you’ll live it. Or do you prefer a bit of anger and stress? We are all artists and it’s only when we paint our own life with the innate values of our spirit, which are also our eternal virtues, that we are truly creative. Paint a little peace, love and wisdom into your life today. If you do, and you make it a regular inner activity, the giving is automatic and the living is…easy! Special We do pay special attention to perform actions that are special, but not always can we perform such elevated actions that we wish to. We tend to get caught up in the daily mundane things. So in routine life, there is not a real experience of the specialty that is there within. The aim is not to perform only actions that are special, but we also need to pay special attention to make all our actions special. This can happen when we recognize our own specialty and allow that specialty to be revealed even in the...

Generosity

      My heart is full and open, flowing with pure good feelings and good wishes for everyone. I follow my spontaneous instinct to give and I am totally happy. Acceptance Love makes us free from expectations, which enables us to accept people as they are. We are then able to understand others’ uniqueness and provide them with whatever is necessary for their positive growth. 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 free in my mind and give them the freedom to express their uniqueness. God As The Ocean Of Knowledge It is believed that God knows the details of every atom and every thought in the universe. It is because of God’s ultimate, pervasive knowledge that He can be described as an ocean. Understanding this world does not necessarily mean to be aware of every detail of the movement of every single leaf or every single molecule. All that is required is to understand completely the conditions through which souls and matter pass. One of the basic beliefs of Christians is that God created man in His own image. God, being the embodiment of knowledge, creates with knowledge. Being the wisest of all, He has the power to change the intellects of human souls. How? When we, the souls, having come in the process of birth and rebirth, become impure, God shares with...

Interfere Lovefully

Peter D’souza <bkpeter1961@gmail.com> To:daily-positive-thoughts@googlegroups.com 2 Sep at 8:48 PM Contemplation:  Interfere Lovefully Interfere Lovefully One of the deepest habits we learn is interfering in others’ lives. Even if we are not actively interfering there is a good chance it’s happening in our heads. Then, when people don’t do what we want them to do, which is usually all the time, our ability to relax is non existent. If you want to interfere successfully in someone else’s life, try this loveful approach. It begins with acceptance, continues with acknowledgement, is empowered by appreciation and ends in actualization. Only in this way can we help others be all that they can possibly be, and what else is life for, but to help others to be all that they can be. Only by making love practical in this way, can we heal our own habits of criticism, envy and blame. Accept, acknowledge and appreciate. It doesn’t mean you have to agree, comply or condone. The paradox is that we ourselves will receive the same in the process, not only from ourselves, as we become what we give, but from others along the way. Why? It’s the law! Easiness When we start with something, which has never been done before, we first have a doubt if we could do it. The task in itself is not very difficult, but it is this thought that makes it seem much more difficult than it actually is. This fear doesn’t let us use all our potentials in an easy way. If there is a task, which is considered by everyone to be difficult, or if I have any fear associated...
