Become A Source Of Support For Others !

Compassion brings the ability to listen from heart. When there is compassion for others, there is the ability to listen to others, to their words and also their feelings when there is the power to listen, there is understanding. This understanding enables one to be more caring and loving in words and actions too, giving according to others needs. When we are open to the others feelings, we are able to relate to them effectively. We never let go of our inner strength becoming a source of support for others. We become such a strong pillar of support that others are able to free themselves of their negativity.

Be Naturally Victorious !

To have power means to enjoy the variety of life. When there is the inner strength there is enthusiasm to give the best and also to learn and improve with every obstacle. To work with inner power is to be like a skilled player whose focus is on enjoying the match too rather than just on winning. When we have learned the art of focusing on our strengths, we are able to enjoy the variety scenes that life brings for me. We would enjoy dealing with all these different scenes in a natural and easy way, and also be naturally victorious. And so we have the benefit of double enjoyment.

Possess A Peaceful, focused And Divine Mind !

Don't give your mind permission to get disturbed. A disturbed mind is easily influenced. This will cost you your peace. Learn to maintain your peace by freeing yourself from attachments. Competing or comparing yourself with others will not allow you to focus inwards. An inner focus allows you to keep your eye on your higher self. Rememberyour original nature. It allows you to forge a link with the Divine. Then it becomes easy to recognise useless thoughts and replace them with a spiritual perspective. A calm mind is not just peaceful, it is focused, self-directing and Divine.

Engage Your Mind In Positive Activity !

The most important part of you is your mind (not your brain – the brain is the hardware and the mind creates the software). Care for your mind, make friends with it, always feed it healthy food, engage it in positive activity, exercise it with knowledge and wisdom. Like a garden returns fragrance and beauty according to the care invested, so your mind will repay you with thoughts, ideas and visions of great beauty when tended and invested with care. Your mind is not made of matter but it does matter what you give it and what you create with it. Where your mind goes, you go. What your mind creates becomes your destiny.

Expand Your Creative Capacity !

Is life an obstacle course? Sometimes it may feel like it. If you join the military you will be sent around an obstacle course of increasing degrees of difficulty. Why? To increase your strength and stamina and expand your creative capacity under strain. So it is on the course called 'life' - you can choose to perceive people, situations or events as obstacles, or you can choose to use these things to strengthen and expand your capacity to be creative and to find ways round, under, over. The choice lies in your perception. Obstacles are never ever 'out there', they are always in our own minds.
