Message for the day

True determination is a combination of single-mindedness and flexibility.

Contemplation:

When there is determination we are sure of what we have to achieve and
we surely move on in that direction. And when we do find obstacles
coming our way we are able to take them in our stride and like a river
we can forge our route towards the destination.

Application:

Let me first take a thought right in the morning for the day.
Throughout the day all I need to do is to keep reminding myself of the
aim that I have taken in the morning and move on in the same direction
till the end of the day. I need to just move on without stopping even
if there are obstacles that come my way.

Message for the day

True maturity lies in getting introverted and getting in touch with
one's own pure, perfect self.

Contemplation:
To be mature is to be introverted.  Introversion means to spend time in
silence, enabling us to get in touch with our pure, perfect self.   It
helps
us to go within and recognize our own inner truth.   It is not just to
stay
within but to recognise one's own inner worth and deal with the world
with it.

Application:
Even during the worst situations, it is necessary to become introverted,
look within myself and see my own inner worth.   I will then naturally
be
able to maintain my self-respect.   This gives me the maturity to be
stable
and happy, whatever the situation might be.

Message for the day

Maturity is to bring positive thoughts into practice.

Contemplation:

We do have a number of thoughts that we would like to put into practice.
Most of the times it doesn't happen that way and they remain merely
thoughts.  True maturity lies in instantly bringing such thoughts into
practice.  When we determine in this way, we are able to use our full
potential.

Application:
Let me think of something that I wanted to do, but could not put into
practice.  Now let me take this thought once again and see why it is
important for me to bring it into practice.  Once I understand this I
will be able to put it into practice.  With maturity let me do things
immediately. The one slogan that is good to remember is 'Now or never'

Message For the day

To be sincere in removing weaknesses is to have the power to overcome
them.

Contemplation:

While it is important to recognize strengths, it is also important to
recognize and acknowledge weaknesses.  With honesty, when we
understand our weaknesses, with sincerity we are able to work towards
overcoming them.  We are then able to find the right method too.

Application:

Let me take a positive thought connected to my weakness and remind
myself of that thought at least 5 times a day. For example, if my
weakness is anger, let me remind myself of my inherent peace with
thoughts like -  I am a being of peace,   peace is inherent within me.
When I practice sincerely with this I find that strength emerges
finishing weakness (peace emerges finishing anger).

Message for the day

To be sincere is to be satisfied.

Contemplation:

When responsibility is taken up and fulfilled with sincerity, there is
efficiency and effectiveness in the work.  This results in
satisfaction and contentment at having made a significant contribution.

Application:

Each day let me take up with sincerity the task of contributing
something significant to any task, even if it is a simple one.  Having
done this, I will find that I am able to be happy with whatever I am
doing, for having made some contribution

Message for the day

The one who is sincere is easy and carefree.

Contemplation:

The one who is sincere is enthusiastic and enthusiasm makes the
biggest obstacle look like a very tiny one.  Sincerity makes us put in
our best and so we are able to understand and prioritize.  So we are
able to be carefree about the consequences too. It also brings the
awareness that there's nothing that is difficult, so we can surely
achieve what we want to.

Application:

I should be able to change my consciousness in such a way that I am
prepared for all the difficulties that life brings.  With sincerity I
need to give my best to the situation.  Then I will neither have fear
nor will I worry. I will also be easy and carefree.

Message for the day

The one who is sincere receives easy cooperation.

Contemplation:

When we are doing something with a clear picture in our minds, and
sincerely
work towards it, others will naturally cooperate.  If we ourselves are
not
sure of what we are doing and why, we will not be able to receive their
cooperation.

Application:
When I want the cooperation of others in what I do, I need to make sure
that
I am sure of what I am doing and that I am sincere in my contribution.
I
first need to be committed myself and I will find others helping me
automatically.

Message for the day 6th April 2006

Introversion helps to get in touch with one's own perfect divine self.

Contemplation:
Introversion means to spend time in silence, enabling us to get in
touch with our inner divine self. It helps us to go within and
recognize our inner own inner truth. It is not just to stay within but
to recognise one's own inner worth and deal with the world with it.

Application:
Even during the worst situations, it is necessary to become
introverted, look within myself and see my own inner worth. I will
then naturally be able to maintain my self-respect, having connected
to my inner divinity.
This enables me to be stable and happy, whatever the situation might be.


Message for the day 5th April 2006

Love brings freedom from expectations.

Contemplation:
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.

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 free in my mind and
give them the freedom to express their uniqueness.


Message for the day 3rd April 2006

Value: Fearlessness

To understand that problems are teachers is to remain fearless.

Contemplation:

Wisdom enables us to move with time, slipping through life as gently
and strongly as possible. When problems do come, we are able to remain
fearless, learn from them and move on.  Thus we are able to experience
constant progress.

Application:

In any problem that I am faced with I need to remind myself that the
situations around me will not remain the same, things might get worse
too. If I am able to understand things and be flexible now I will be
able to get prepared for all kinds of situations that I might be faced
with in the future too. Wisdom brings fearlessness and enables me to
recognize an obstacle from a distance and be prepared for it.

Message for the day

The one who is light gets the right solutions even in the most
difficult situations.

Contemplation:

Situations do bring a lot of challenges for us, but where there is
fear or worry while facing them, there cannot be clarity in thought.
So we cannot see the solution that is hidden.  On the other hand, the
one who is light is able to see the solution hidden within every
problem and so is able to achieve success quickly.

Application:

When faced with a problem I need to make effort to be light and
carefree and then look for the solution with a clear mind.  I need to
make special effort to clear my mind of all waste and negative,
especially about the problem itself.  Let me instead allow my mind to
dwell on something more positive.  This will naturally allow my mind
to come up with the right solution.
