Message for the day

Truth is proved when it is combined with humility. Problem: When we think we know the truth and we are truthful, we generally tend to also have arrogance of that truth.   This is why we argue and try to prove our point to the other person.   We are not able to see what the other person has to say and continue to put forth our own idea or perspective.   This sometimes leads to futile arguments and conflicts. Solution: When I am truthful, I also have humility.   With humility I am able to put forth my idea to the other person in a detached way.    The truth in me will enable me to understand the other person accurately and will keep me open to see his point of view too.   This naturally will get my point across without much of difficulty, as the other person is also able to see my point of view.

"The TRUTH is that TRUTH IS"

Thought for the day

Looking at others' mistakes leads to overlooking one's own.

Message for the day

                      To train the mind with love is to make it obey at the time of need.   Problem : Usually we try hard to make the mind obey in difficult situations.  The situation would be one that induces negative emotions and we try to make the mind think only positive. But at that time the mind is not willing to obey my order.  I try harder and finally give  in to these negative emotions.   Solution : Just as a mother teaches her child with love and patience until the child learns, so also I need to be a mother to my mind.  I need to teach it positive thoughts and help it to let go of worries.  When I thus train it with love, when I need peace, i.e., at the time of need it will obey me naturally. I then don’t have to struggle.  
True Peace True peace can be experienced only when we stop giving and taking sorrow. In order not to give sorrow we need a clear heart that has no ill feelings and for not taking sorrow we need a big heart that can tolerate and help other souls to get over their weaknesses.

"If you wanted and didnt get, maybe you dont need"

Message for the day 10th August

To change the focus from negative to positive is to create hope. Problem: 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.  Solution: It is important for me to change the theme of conversation that I have with others, and start talking about what life gives me.  It gives me so much that goes unnoticed.  So I need to consciously change this so that it creates an environment of hope and enthusiasm for the future, also giving me a more positive view of the present reality.  

Positivity 10th August

Message For Day 9th August

To listen to others fully is to be able to be free from repeating mistakes. Problem: When there is criticism that comes one's way, there is a tendency to ignore or to defend oneself. Naturally we then lose the power to listen. We then find that we are not able to correct our mistakes and so they repeat. We thus find that we are not able to experience progress. Solution: I need to carefully analyse to see if there is any truth in any criticism that comes my way. If there is, correction can be made accordingly. When I listen to others with honesty, I am able to discover even the most negligible aspect in my behaviour which I can change. So I find myself constantly improving and progressing and moving on towards success. So having brought about a change, even the criticism that comes my way stops.

Love spreads positivity.

Expression: The one who is loving is not limited by circumstances and his love is not restricted only to certain people.  On the other hand, it is revealed in each and every act thus colouring everything and every relationship with the beauty of that love.  To be loving is to be constantly a giver.  It also means to forgive others easily and help them to move forward.   Experience: When I am loving constantly, I am able to experience the joy of life.  I am able to exchange the gifts of pure feelings and find my life enriched with them.  I am able to enjoy the beauty of relationships without having to feel the bondage due to expectations.  Each moment of my life is filled with beauty and joy.
