Good Inspiring Thoughts !

Most of us are of sound mind, but many of us have trouble maintaining a note of harmony and peace. Most of us know how to think, but few of us are able to control our thoughts. We all have the capacity to be creative, to image new ideas, but few of us are able to do it together and co-create in harmony with each other. We could all do with some mental training so that we may use the most powerful energy in the universe, the mind, which is always at our instant disposal. We can begin with mindfulness. It's a simple way to gently help our mind go where it is best to go, do what is the best thing to do. It begins by simply being fully aware of what you are doing. Mostly we are not fully aware, as our minds wander into the past and then into possible futures. We spend most of our time watching others and so rarely fully focus on what we are actually doing ourselves. Next time you sit down to a meal, watch yourself. Be aware of only what you are eating. Every time your mind wants to wander, bring it gently and lovingly back to the action and sensation of eating. Then do the same when cleaning, when writing, when working. The more you do it stronger and more focused and more rational will be your concentration, the more natural will be your actions, the more peaceful you will feel, and the more relaxed you will be, no matter what you are doing.

Great Motivational Statements !

Normally there is a tendency to think of what we need and what we have to acquire. So we tend to think of ourselves alone. We think of sharing with others only when we have sufficient for ourselves. This creates expectations from others and there is disappointment when these expectations are not fulfilled. There are lots of resources in our lives that we can share with others. The more there is the consciousness of giving there is the ability to give and share these inner resources with others. We discover new treasures and use them for the benefit of all and also for the self. Then there is constant satisfaction in our lives. There are also constant good wishes that we receive from others.

Best Positive Quotes !

Normally it is understood that to get the best role is to be a hero actor.  So we are more inclined towards a role where we can get people's praise.   If people praise us we feel good about it and if they don't we are disappointed.  We are usually dependent on people's appreciation. Yet it doesn't come by so consistently.   We can be a hero actor at all times when we have attention on every act of ours. We make sure that none of our words or actions are ordinary or waste. Since we pay constant attention to everything we do, we find that we are able to give our best.   We are then satisfied with whatever is happening since we know what we do is not as important as how well we do it.
