Inner Peace Is Important For Real Freedom !

When there is the connection outside without looking within, there is inability to be the best and do the best in situations. Instead if there is a constant connection within, before the connection is made outside, then it becomes easy to express the inner qualities necessary to deal with the problems outside. When we allow our mind to get disturbed over small things, it will cost us our peace of mind. We are not able to retain our inner power, which is needed to experience freedom. On the other hand, if we are able to retain our inner peace, We can be connected with our innate divine nature. We are able to experience true mastery.

Cool And Calm Mind Gives You The Right Perspective !

The usual response to negative stimuli in the environment is to react negatively. The impact of such stimuli on the sense organs is negative, which brings out negative behavior too. The one who is able to spend a few moments in silence before responding to situations is to be a master who is free from negativity. When I am a master I am able to remain stable in all situations. I have the practice of calming my mind and looking at the situation in the right perspective. My mind grows strong in its commitment to peace and truth in action. I don't allow the sense organs work according to the previous conditioning. Instead I consciously monitor, giving them right direction.

Respecting Others Will Give Us Respect In Return !

We normally expect respect from others and when others don't behave according to our expectations, we tend to get disappointed. We only think about what else the others have to give but things always don't go according to our expectations. Instead of expecting others to change according to our wishes and instead of expecting others' respect, we need to see whether we give respect to the other person or not. The more we have the practice of accepting and respecting people for what they are, we are able to keep our mind at peace (with no waste and negative thoughts). Also people start responding to our feelings and give us respect too.

An Useful Positive Message To Help You Progress !

When we consider ourselves to be big, we usually expect from others. We usually want others to give respect and be obedient to whatever we say. But not always do we find others listening to us or obeying us. We are then disappointed and try to use more of our authority in a forceful way. To be big means not to expect to take but to be a giver. If we are big, we definitely also need the understanding that we are in a better position than the other person and so we need to give. This attitude will help us get others' good wishes which will help us progress and we continue to achieve success.

Relaxed Mind Generates Power !

When there is a problem in the body, there is naturally pain experienced. The one who is caught up with the pain is not able to take the mind beyond it. Such a person usually continues to describe the pain and tends to focus on it more and more. So there is inability to use the power of the mind to relieve oneself from the pain. When there is the ability to make the mind strong even when there is a problem in the body, we are able to have the courage to win over the pain. We don't get caught up with the pain. On the other hand, the relaxed attitude of our mind generates power, which can even cure the body.

Great Motivational Thought !

Normally we celebrate for sometime and at that time forget our worries. But once the celebration is over we come back to our routine thoughts. Celebration is seen as something temporary and is in the company of those dear to us. But not always do we get such a chance to celebrate. Hence we usually keep looking forward to some new celebration. Real celebration is to enjoy the beauty and joy of each and every moment. This moment is special and it is this moment that is the real celebration. Such celebration keeps us in constant enthusiasm. So we will stop looking for special occasions to be happy but will be able to make the best use of this moment and give others that experience too, instead of being dependent on others for celebration.
