Accept Everyone In Their Own Unique Way !

We usually expect people to behave according to our expectations. We would like to see people change according to our expectations and we expect them to mould themselves with our own value system. Yet we notice that this does not happen and then we tend to become disappointed. We need to understand that each one is unique with his own specialties, and uniqueness. When we are able to appreciate this uniqueness we are able to respect each and every human being and the unique contribution he can make. So with this change in our consciousness we will not expect others to change according to my wish but will take benefit from their uniqueness.

Inspire The Best In Others !

To be cooperative to someone who is being good to you, and to get the cooperation of "good" people is easy. But not always do we get people's cooperation consistently. When we don't, it affects the task and our own state of mind negatively. True cooperation comes from a vision of hope and faith in each and every individual we come into contact with. When we have this vision, we are able to give cooperation in the right way to people. And we are also able to get their cooperation at all times for all tasks, for we will be able to inspire the best in them.

Have A Positive Conversation With God !

One of the best ways to remain light, even in the middle of chaos and heaviness, is to keep a conversation with God. Chatting to God, whose responsibilities are unlimited, about trivial matters that are wearing us down gives us a more entertaining view of life. It requires a certain stillness of mind to hear His advice, but with practice we learn to sense His perspective on our minor irritations. Since His mind radiates lightness and love, the very act of opening ourselves up to Him enables us to lighten our burdens.

Transform The Circumstances Into Positive Ones To Create A New Destiny !

When I am disheartened, I may do one of the two: I either suffer quietly by admonishing my incapabilities and fate or I externalize my problems by blaming God and those around me. Apart from the stress I create for myself and negative karma with other souls, what's important is that either way I am not solving the problem. Each one of us face disappointment at our own times, but the longer I allow these feelings to stay on the more attached they become. I can only begin to heal the situation and myself by 'wanting a change', 'wanting relief' and 'wanting something better as I deserve it.' This positive attitude works as catalysis to transform circumstances, take me closer to God and create a new destiny.

Good Inspirational Talks !

When you have the power to accommodate, you are mature enough to merge gossip, rumours, people's weaknesses and sanskars and not spread bad vibrations. Just as a mother never talks ill of her children's defects or as the ocean accepts the rubbish rivers bring along, God teaches us to be sensible and discreet. These qualities make us trustworthy and give us the power to build relationships rather than walls.
