Keep A Check On Yourself And Control Every Situation !

When things go wrong, the first thought is to control the situations or the people involved. But since neither the situations nor the people are in our hands, there is no success in controlling them. This only further increases the negativity. Instead of trying to control something that I have no control upon, I need to start with myself. The more I am able to keep a control on myself with constant attention, checking and changing, the more I will be able to have everything in control.

Be Courageous And Solve Your Problems !

Many times when involved in something difficult, we begin to look for help from people even before we have started. Prayer is also one method which we rely on and wish for things to work our way. But not always do we find the help coming that is required. So we tend to get disheartened and maybe even give up trying altogether. The simple way to receive help is to first have courage. When I first take a step of courage using the force of all my resources, I automatically find others taking help from that too. For having moved one step ahead, I get the help from the resources available, from the people around, God himself & me. I thus recognize and make use of all the help that is coming my way. So I never need to beg for help, but find help coming my way automatically.

Be Calm And Experience Peacefulness !

Whenever we become peaceless, we generally tend to blame others for it. We think it is the other person or the situation that has made us lose our cool. So although we don't like to be in this state of mind, we don't make real honest effort to change it. And most of the time we don't even know how to do it, as we are not even aware of where the real problem lies. We then make those around us more peaceless instead of giving them peace, which they actually require. We need to first know the cause of the peaceless situation. For this we need to check ourselves with honesty. We need to understand clearly that there is some conflict within ourselves that is creating this situation. Then even if someone tries to create confusion, we will be able to remain calm and peaceful. Since we are in our calm state of mind, we will be able to give an experience of peace to others too.

Simplicity Means Purity !!!

Simplicity is usually considered as being plain and with no decoration. So when we think of simplicity we are not so attracted towards it. We tend to make a lot of effort to colour ourselves with a lot of other things from the outside which then become part of our personality. But in this process we tend to lose touch with our innate purity and innocence. So we are not able to express this beauty. Simplicity means complete purity. It is to be egoless and also to be free from every kind of negativity. So when we come back to our original purity and simplicity we are able to express our innate beauty and strength. Since we are natural, whatever we are doing, wherever we are, we will be able to express this natural nature.

Meaning Of Freedom !

The meaning of Freedom in having no burden - no burden of body or mind. Freedom is having such a clear vision of reality and such a powerful image of the self that the superficial bondages cannot contain you. Freedom is the knowledge that comes from knowing what your role is and playing it accurately. Freedom is freedom from fear and anxiety. Living from a position of freedom gives us the opportunity to make choices beyond the ordinary because then we are living beyond all bondages - even the bondage of actions.

Inspiring Positive Sentences !

When we hear something new and worthwhile from someone, we naturally get the feeling to bring that into our practical life. But it is then soon forgotten and doesn't become part of our life. It remains theory in our mind, and after sometime we are not inspired by it anymore. We either don't have courage or are discouraged with our past experiences. We can bring something we know into practice, only when we are able to experience it at some point. For this we need to make a plan to actually find a space for what we know to come into practice. When we start even mechanically, that particular point brings experience in our lives. Then we naturally further experiment with it.
