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.

The habit of seeking validation, appreciation & fame from others ended when I recognised my self worth by realising who am I in true sense. #brahmakumaris #thoughtfortheday #thought4day

Message for the day 25-9-08

The one who sacrifices name and fame is the one who gets recognition. Projection: When we make a positive contribution we usually want to get recognition for it. We might not always say it in words but there is always an expectation that others should recognise our contribution. Solution: We need to make sure that we enjoy whatever we do. Since the task itself becomes enjoyable for us, we don't anymore expect recognition. The more we become free from expectations we get the love from others and recognition too.

A contented soul never complaints about other people and is always loved by everyone. No matter what the surrounding is, our happiness and contentment can serve to bring a change. Everyone wants to work with a contented human being. #brahmakumaris #thoughtfortheday #thought4day
