Talk To Yourself....

Your internal dialogue establishes your way of seeing the world. When you make demands on and reproach yourself, you create a world of stress and pain. To be peaceful, create a loving dialogue with yourself, enabling your inner values to awaken and be expressed regardless of your external world.

Father Of All Souls!

We should ask ourselves, do we react to situations in a positive or negative manner? The way we react is very much dependent upon our mental attitude and this in turn is directed by our thoughts. Linking our thoughts to the problems that surround us brings unlimited tension and worry. By linking them to the subtle and powerful vibrations of the unlimited source of peace, tranquility and knowledge that is, God the Supreme, we automatically have a constant source of good uplifting vibrations which can settle our troubled minds. He is the Father of all souls, the one who is there to give help at any time. In a time where our thoughts wander with little or no direction, where we find it difficult to talk or relate to people, it is worth remembering that God, who understands us, is only a thought away.

Leave Your Ego Behind!

One of the most difficult things to do is letting go of your ego. And yet, it is very simple, easy and effortless and one of the most powerful things you can do. And yet, when you do it you give up the need and the desire for power. When you can bring yourself to get beyond your own ego, you raise yourself to a whole new level of awareness, experience and effectiveness. When you can think, live and act unconstrained by the limitations of your ego, the possibilities are truly endless. Your worries, your fears, your doubts, anxieties, disappointments and hesitation to move forward are all sustained by your ego. Imagine the power of leaving all those limitations behind. Spend a few minutes, a few hours, or an entire day unconcerned about what others will think, or what's in it for you, or whether something offends you or not. Feel the freedom, delight in the ability to accomplish, and explore possibilities that you may never before have even known about.

'Bliss' And 'Bless'

There is only the difference of the letter "i" between the words 'bliss' and 'bless'. When we stay in bliss then we naturally draw the blessings of others. We don't need to ask for the blessings, they just come. However, if our nature is even slightly sensitive we will either clash with others or get caught up in them. Clashing and getting caught makes the soul distressed and tired. Become free of these and you will feel that your hands are no longer tied and so you can give. Those who are free can become 'phool' (flowers). When we are not free we either prick others or we get pricked by others.
Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.

Standing Watch !!!

We have one Angel standing watch above us as we sleep...
Another gathers up the hopes and dreams we wish to keep
One Angel is the tiny voice that whispers in our ears...
With words of love and comfort to conquer grief and fears
We have so many Angels with one friendship keeper too...
Another just to help us mend the thoughtless things we do
We have a Guardian of Love who protects our Destiny...
And helps us with our soul mate with whom we are meant to be
We have a host of Angels that keep us company...
In order that we may become the best that we can be.
Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu

Changing Life!

When you are aware and accept that everything around you is constantly changing, and that you have no control over 99.99% of it, you are able to embrace change like a close friend! Change is a like a river, constantly flowing and moving things around. The river of life is constantly bringing you ideas, people, situations - each one is an opportunity to be enriched or to enrich others, to grow and to learn. Change is the play of the universe as it entertains us in the biggest light-and-sound show of all time.

Stay Away From Desires!

Desires cause peace to disappear. You think that acquiring things will make you feel secure, but the reality is that the more you have, the more fear there is of losing it, and the further you are from peace. Desires are the cause of all conflicts. When you want something and cannot get it, you become frustrated. Learning to be free from desires is learning how to stay peaceful.
