Be Content ! Be Satisfied !

Next time you are waiting for anything, notice what you are wanting! This will be a source of your tension or impatience. All desire has fear built in - fear of not getting or losing, even before your desire is fulfilled. If you want to be free of fear in life, which is another way of saying if you want to be free of stress, the secret is to want nothing, and then magic happens, for lo and behold, all that you need and more, arrives in your life, at the right time, in the right way. Not what they told us in kindergarten was it?

Improve Yourselves And Benefit Others With Your Virtues !

To be generous hearted is to bestow others with your specialities and virtues. When we are generous we will become cooperative and enable others to become virtuous through our virtues and fill others with our specialities. The more we use our specialities in this way, the more we will find them increasing. Let us think of something that is very special in us. Today let us take the thought of using this speciality of ours for someone's benefit. Not only will others benefit with this, we will find ourselves improving too.

Make Your Thoughts More Pure, Positive And Powerful !

The practice of the divine virtues makes one positive and powerful. When we are connected to our inner divine virtues, there is peace and beauty in our minds. Thus we find that concentration and memory power increase as every thought is connected to the inner divinity and positivity. When we are not able to take clear decisions or not able to see things clearly, we need to check the quality of our thoughts. We need to make effort to make our thoughts more pure and positive. We can do this when we are able to connect to the divinity within. This will make us experience power.

Correct Others Effectively With Sweetness !

Correction with sweetness is more effective than words spoken with anger. We need to be sweet while we have to correct or point out someone's mistake. When we do that, what goes across to them is the feeling and not the words. If there were to be anger or dislike while correcting them, the response we get would be negative too. When we do have to correct someone, it is necessary to remind ourselves to be sweet, not just in our words, but in our attitude as well. For this we need to practice having good wishes for the one we want to bring a change in. Love combined with sweetness will surely work, and we'll definitely be able to notice a change.

Optimism Changes Things In The Right Way !

The ones with real sweetness are always optimistic. Having understood the secret behind each and everything that is happening, sweetness comes in our lives. Then we automatically find ourselves becoming optimistic. Even under the most difficult situation, we would never let go off our optimism. If we ever find ourselves disheartened or discouraged, we should remind ourselves of our own inner sweetness. We know and understand that things will ultimately happen in the right way, we only have to wait and watch. We have the faith that things will surely change.
