Intelligent Quote on Victory !

If you ever find yourself defending a position, explaining why, or justifying anything, it means you have been defeated. It means you have not been able to accept the others point of view, or the fact that you may be wrong. Fear has conquered your mind and your heart. Your defences are up and you are running scared. It's not that the other person has conquered you, it's the self-created fear that is in control. Until you can accept the other (you don't have to agree) and you are not threatened by the other, your victories will be delayed. It's a funny old world when true winning is accepting not resisting, when victory is found in the wisdom to stop fighting and to begin engaging.

Great Thought On Spirituality !

The deepest wounds we all carry are locked in our subconscious (out of our awareness). Deep memories and subtle impressions, from unfinished experience, rooted in the past. The pain from those wounds comes to revisit, to block and paralyse us in the moment called now. We all know it comes without warning - "Why am I feeling this way, I didn't mean to do that, I don't know what made me say that." Healing does not mean finding and treating every single inner scar which send it message to haunt us. It means going even deeper, past those wounds, beyond those distant memories and recording of unfinished business, to the core of our self, to the heart of our spirit, where we find the light and warmth of our own core qualities of love and peace. They are eternally present within us they are what we need to heal all our inner wounds. That's why this kind of deep healing is called spirituality and not therapy.

An Important Positive Thought !

It is much easier to note what one doesn't have than appreciate what one has. So whenever challenging situations come our way, we tend to see what we are lacking. When there is such an attitude we are not able to make any effort to change the situation. We then tend to blame others or give excuses. During challenging situations and even otherwise, we need to make special effort to appreciate and use what we have. When we continue to make effort in this way, every challenge will allow us to discover and use hidden resources, thus making us richer. So we would be able to experience constant progress.

Always See Good In Everything !

We are usually controlled by our sense organs. For example, whatever our eyes see, we are distracted with that. Thoughts continue to wander in that particular direction and we have no control over them. At that time even if we do try to control, we find it very difficult. The stimulus the sense organs get is not in our hands, but how we choose to respond definitely is. So we need to give the training so that we see only positivity in everything, i.e., we also have the power to transform even negativity into positivity. Then at the right time, this training will help us keep our sense organs under control.

Accumulate Positive And Powerful Thoughts Only !

We do have a lot of thoughts to bring about a change in our lives. But most of the times we find that we are not able to bring this thought into practice. As time passes by the thought too loses its importance and we find ourselves caught up with waste or negative thoughts. We need to keep a chart of our waste and negative thoughts as well as our powerful and positive thoughts. Only when we are consciously aware of how much we are spending through our negative and waste thoughts and how much we are accumulating through our positive and powerful thoughts can we be determined. We also are able to increase our accumulation and thereby increase inner power.

Show Your Positive And Beautiful Mind !

While we spend much time 'making up' our faces to ensure our appearance is beautiful for others, we forget to make up our minds. This is not about making decisions. Making up our mind means ensuring that our thoughts are positive and our feelings towards others are filled with good wishes. When we do, others begin to sense a deeper beauty emanating from behind the skin! This is inner beauty. Don't hide behind your face. Let the real you show through.
