Possess A Smiling Face !

We all know and remember a smiling person - someone whose heart seems to radiate through their teeth. And when they do, notice how it's almost impossible not to smile back...unless you are feeling very, very grumpy! So if you don't feel a smile coming on - why not do it anyway. Not only does it transform your inner chemical production and create 'happy hormones', but when people are on the end of your smile, they smile back (well most do). And if you really don't genuinely feel like smiling at life, the universe and everybody - fake it until you make it!

Highly Important Quote !

Each one of us is a walking radiator. Mostly we radiate thoughts and attitudes. From deep within we radiate our state of being, and the essential, original and eternal state of every being is peaceful and loving. But we block and distort this energy with our attachments. Attachments turn love into fear, peace into anger and then distort our attitudes and actions towards others. This is neither relaxing for ourselves, or for those around us. Which is why detachment is the secret to living lightly and lovingly. To be a radiator that people come to for real warmth, what do you need to detach from today? If you don't detach then you will stay attached, and then you will see others and life itself as a threat, and your tension will keep them away. But they cannot threaten you. Only your dependency on a thing, or an idea, or an opinion can be threatened. Come on...what needs to be released today? What needs to be released so the light can come through?

Magical Positive Thoughts !

Life experiences are like sentences - we are always looking for the full stop, the conclusion. It's OK to end a train of thought, but not thought itself. Thoughts are the beginning of our creation and are here to be creative. Thoughts are like the magic carpet on which the soul rides across eternity - in reality, there are no endings, noconclusions. Rest for the spirit (which is what we are) is when we allow only the current of the purest thoughts to flow through our mind - thoughts which carry good wishes and blessings for ourselves and others. This is not so much going with the flow, as being in the flow, and being refreshed by the flow. It is how we refresh ourselves. For when we have powerful, positive thoughts for and about others, who experiences them first?

Become A Source Of Inspiration To Others !

The best service is to keep shining with inner specialities. Everyone wants to become a source of support and help to others. Attempts are made to do something, which will help others. But the real service that one can do is to discover the inner qualities that are present and use them in simple activities. These specialities add quality to the task, and become a source of benefit and joy for those around. When we are able to add quality to what we do, we automatically become a source of inspiration for those around us. Then we don't have to do a lot of things to be helpful to others, but our very life will become useful for those around us, and many more. We will have the joy of doing even simple things in a beautiful way.
