Positive Enchanting Quote !

It's a wonder how God manages to be so enchanting since none of His uniqueness can be attributed to the parameters human beings normally associate with an attractive personality such as etiquette, education, fashion sense, social contacts etc. Though God's purity, wisdom, power, love... are intangible, when I am soul-consciousness I get exposed to God's unparalleled magnetism. The more I stay in this spiritual magnetic field, my mind and heart experience a slow but permanent change by appreciating myself and others for more than physical qualifications.

Power Of Silence !

Sometimes you are trying to remember something, its within your reach, on the tip of your tongue, but it is just isn't coming out. Everyone around is suggesting something or trying to help, but in reality not helping at all. You wish for a moment of silence, so that you can dive into your memory bank, for you know that is the only way you will be able to remember. This is the power of silence in action. Many, not recognizing its power, do not value it. They turn their heads away from the thought of a few moments of silence. They feel it a punishment.

When we find our thoughts moving in many directions because of external demands on our attention, we need to stop, take a rain check on everything and experience silence. This power of silence is essential when we want to plan for the future, we should silence unnecessary thoughts and think of a point in question. So when you get an opportunity of a moment's silence, don't waste that precious moment. Use it to store the strength within that is so necessary for dealing with the world without.

Discipline Your Mind For Positive Effect !

Am I comfortable with silence? Or does the mind get fidgety when I am physically silent and bring up questions and uncertainties related to my life and relationships? Silence to some is boring and unproductive but that depends on my thoughts. I have two magical tools in hand: the mind and intellect. When I teach both to work in synchrony, I create for myself unforgettable experiences of empowerment, love, wisdom, compassion, forgiveness, far-sightedness... In silence, I can detach from my body, task and relationships and see which next step would be beneficial for myself and others. The more I discipline the mind with love, it will become my closest friend.

Spread Love For Others !

Live in such a way that love informs every action! When we have learned to live like this, nothing will disturb us. Our contentment and good feelings towards others remain constant. We become free. The power to live like this comes from inside, not from outside. That is why we stay free, with no expectations from others, no frustrations. To live like this requires us the let go off certain beliefs and habits that drain us from this strength and interfere with our ability to love. Some times they become so deep-seated in us, that we are not aware of its presence.

Great Interesting Thoughts !

You live in a body and that has to be known, not physiologically, as a machine, but spiritually, as a temple. When you know it physiologically, you cure it with chemicals; when you know it spiritually you cure it with thought. And when its health is based on thought, it becomes a thought, it becomes a source of health to others - a refuge. When its health is based on medicine, it becomes an attraction to others and so a trap.

A Thought Provoking Quote !

Who are you that lives in the body? You are a thinker, and what you think creates the atmosphere in the 'temple', and the atmosphere determines how much love there is in your life. A poor thinker in a smart machine attracts friendship with a motive; a rich thinker in a temple attracts love. And the love that you attract today is the foundation of your future, so though it is earned slowly, its depth is worth it.
