Remain Light To Gain Easy Success !

To be light is to be free from the bondage of one's own weaknesses. To be light is to be free from the burden or bondage of waste thoughts and weaknesses. These traits within don't allow one to work with lightness. The waste binds the mind and so the efficiency is blocked. On the other hand, the one who is free from these weaknesses is free from bondages while doing everything. The one who remains light, remains up above and hence gains easy success. When we are light while doing our activities, we find ourselves working over our weaknesses easily and naturally. So, we feel free from the bondages of waste thoughts. This further enables us to discover hidden talents and potentials. This gives us the satisfaction of doing well and also enables us to experience easy success in every action we do.

Make An Impact On Others With Your Sweet Words !

Others experience sweetness when words are filled with the power of truth. False sweetness is saying that something is good without having taken the pains to find out what it is i.e., commenting on something superficial. Sweet words are those that are spoken after having understood the reality. In order for our words to make an impact on others, we must take time to see if we have really recognised the goodness in the other person. Each of our comments should be based on the truth that we have discovered in others and we will find others taking benefit from my words.

Purity In Thoughts Bring Forth Positive Words And Actions !

The seed of pure thoughts surely bear fruit. Purity in thoughts means to be free from all kind of negative influences. Such thoughts bring forth positive words and actions. The one who has pure thoughts is able to express his own inner positivity in every act and every relationship. Every effort is naturally made to sustain this pure thought, and this sustenance bears fruit at its own time. When we keep our mind clean and clear, we are able to enjoy sowing seeds of only pure thoughts. Such pure thoughts help us get multiple times result, as even a single thought gets us several fruit. One thought of positivity adds power to every area of our life, and we become empowered.

Maintain A Positive State of Mind !

To add the power of positivity is to finish negativity. The only way to finish negativity is to add the power of positivity. When there is someone who is using negative traits or if there is a situation, which brings negativity, it is necessary to fill oneself with the power of positivity. When this is done, words and actions are coloured with positivity, which colours others too. When we are faced withnegativity, it is important for us to maintain our positive state of mind. Instead of adding fire to something that is already on fire, when we are able to add the cool water of positivity, we are able to become an instrument of bringing change. We never blame others for the situation, but are always able to find resources to better the situation.

Remember You Are A One-Off !

Perhaps the most common habit we all learn to develop is to compare our self with others. Every time you compare yourself with another watch for thoughts like, "They seem to be doing better than me.... I wonder what it's like to be them... how come they get all the luck ... they are much better than me at that." Behind these thoughts you are really saying you would like to be them, live like them and be in the position they are in. In that moment you forget you are absolutely unique. You can only be your self. There is no one the same as you, and you can never be the same as someone else. If you keep thinking in this way you only sustain an underlying sense of failure which eats away at your self-respect and self-esteem. Never compare your self with anyone else, realise and remember you are a one-off!
