Message for the Day

Happiness is earned by those whose actions and attitudes are pure and selfless.

Contemplation:

When the actions are pure and selfless there is no trace of negativity.
Where there is no negativity, the mind becomes free from feelings of guilt, fear etc.  This automatically ensures constant happiness.

Application:

If there is no happiness, there is definitely some kind of negativity.
So check the actions that you perform.  Let them be not only for your benefit but also for the benefit of all and you will find that you are able to be in constant happiness.

Message for the day

Value: Happiness

True happiness doesn't come from external things or people but from
within.

Contemplation:

As long as we depend for our happiness on external sources, there is
every chance that we are disappointed.  True happiness is that which
comes from within.  It is to enjoy and cherish each moment.  When we
do this our happiness spreads to others too.

Application:
Let me take this thought today to smile at everyone and everything
that comes my way.  When I believe I am happy I will be able to take
even the negative things in the most positive way.

Message for the Day

Introversion helps to manage thoughts better.

Contemplation:
With introversion we can very easily manage our thoughts since our
mind will be free from waste and negative.  Also when we are
introverted, we find that there is no need to think as much as we do,
but the thoughts required emerge effortlessly.  Thus we are able to
use our thoughts powerfully.

Application:
When I find myself having a lot of thoughts due to some situation, I
only need to sit in silence and practice going within myself instead
of thinking too much about the situation.  I need to make an attempt
to experience the peace deep within myself and I will find myself
getting calmer.

Message for the day

Your love for God will make you feel victorious in all situations.

Contemplation:

Your love for God will make you experience His companionship in everything you do.  Where there is love there is never a moment of loneliness.
Thus you will be able to move forward with courage in all the challenges that life brings.

Application:

Think of one situation where you have found yourself failing.  Now think that God is with you to help you in this situation.   When you believe this, you will find that you'll get the courage to accept and face the situation. Then you can also work and bring about a change in the situation.

Message for the day

The one way to change others is to deal with them with love.

Contemplation:

When you have love for others, you will have good wishes for them.
Your desire to change them will then be for their good and not for your own
selfishness.   Others will quickly respond to your unselfish love and
you will find them changing.

Application:

Think of one person you want to bring about a change in.  Before you think of changing that person let there be a lot of love for that person in your mind.  Also make sure the change you want in the other person is for his own good and not for your own selfish reason.

Message for the day

Tolerance enables one to learn from mistakes.

Contemplation:

When one is sure of what he is doing and he is in his stage of self-respect, criticism can be taken in the right way.  This will give the ability to look within when something goes wrong.  Instead of justifying mistakes there will be the ability to learn from them and improve.

Application:

When someone criticises me, I need to remind myself that I have something to learn from it.  Let me ask myself if there is at least a small aspect that I could learn from and incorporate in my life.  Let me take this aspect and leave the rest.

Message for the day

Those with the power of tolerance will be content and will make others content too.

Contemplation:

When there is tolerance, there is also continuous improvement.  This in turn brings satisfaction for the self and also enables us to become a source of support for those around too.  This will make them content with themselves and with us too.

Application:

Let me take a thought to make it a point to learn at least one thing from all the suggestions that I get throughout a given day.  When I keep this in mind I will be able to tolerate even negative comments very easily and I will find myself improving.

Message for the day

A single step taken with courage brings a thousand fold help from God.

Contemplation:

If there is fear due to which we are not able to take the first step,
we will never be able to achieve big things. Even if something looks
impossible, with a single step of courage it can be made possible and
we will then be able to receive maximum help. God of course doesn't do
our work but he does the work of giving us help.

Application:

Let me start with something new after surrendering it to God not just
as a ritual, but with firm faith in my mind that I will receive His
help. When I do this, help will surely come from some or the other means.
