Thoughts are the seeds that create our destiny. Thoughts lead one to destiny. If there is the same thought as before, there is no newness and there cannot be anything new attained. If things have to change, effort needs to be put in at the level of the thought first. Such thoughts will naturally inspire and motivate to make the best use of the available resources. When I begin to create new elevated thoughts in challenging times, I am able to be happy and peaceful. I don't have questions related to the situations but I am able to find the solutions in my mind .This inner peace naturally creates a peaceful environment around me.

To control the mind means to be the master of the mind. Controlling thoughts is usually understood as clearing out the mind of all negative and waste thoughts when they do arise. So whenever we have negative thoughts we try hard to transform them into the positive ones. Control of the mind is actually to have mastery over my thoughts, so that I am able to direct them as I wish to. So even in the most negative situations I need to maintain my positivity instead of trying hard to convert negative into positive.

As I listen, I understand; as I understand, I reflect and gradually move into concentration. Concentration is when I am completely absorbed in one thought. The thought in which one is absorbed becomes one’s world. When the human mind is absorbed in the thought of God, the person feels totally in union with Him. In this silent link of love, I awaken – not as a part of an intellectual process, but as a state of being.

The act of silence is as necessary for my spiritual well being as breathing is for physical life. Silence brings my mental and emotional energy to a point of concentration, a point of stillness. Without this inner stillness, we become like puppets, pulled here and there by the many different strings of external influences. The inner point of stillness is of autonomy, which cuts the string. The loss of energy ceases.
