Find The Beauty That Is Hidden Within You !

Introversion brings empowerment of the self. Just as a tortoise withdraws from the external environment after its work is done, we too need to find time for ourselves. Amidst the activity of the day, we need to make time to look within and find the beauty that is hiddenthere. When we do this as a practice it brings a positive experience that empowers the self. We need to give ourselves a little time everyday at regular intervals. During this time, we need to look within and find our own uniqueness and we will find that we are ableto have access to our positivity. This practice will help us during a difficult time too and we will be able to use these qualities under all circumstances. So we will not be a victim to situations but will be able to give what is required at that time.

Changing Ourselves According To Situations Will Make Us Happy !

Happiness comes when there is self-sovereignty. Being a self-sovereign enables to have control over the self. If not, when there are negative or difficult situations, there would be sorrow. When there is control there will be no expectations from situations to change, but there will be the courage to change oneself. When things go wrong, instead of worrying or waiting for things to change, we need to remind ourselves that we are a self-sovereign and we will be able to bring about a change in ourselves. When we work on ourselves and change we can be happy.

Don't Think Much, Use Thoughts Required Effortlessly !

Introversion helps to manage thoughts better. With introversion we can very easily manage our thoughts since our mind will be free from waste and negative. Also when we are introverted, we find that there is no need to think as much as we do, but the thoughts required emerge effortlessly. Thus we are able to use our thoughts powerfully. When we find ourselves having a lot of thoughts due to some situation, we only need to sit in silence and practice going within ourselves instead of thinking too much about the situation. We need to make an attempt to experience the peace deep within ourselves and we will find we are getting calmer.

Detachment Enables To Understand The Importance Of The Virtue !

Balance makes life peaceful and happy. A life of peace is a life of balance. Sometimes, even a single negative thought or word can throw one out of balance. Even a virtue needs to be in balance. For instance determination, which provides energy and concentration necessary for any accomplishment can become stubbornness. So determination when balanced with patience and flexibility creates a life of happiness. When we have detachment whilst using a virtue, we are able to maintain balance. Otherwise we find that even a virtue to an extreme takes a negative form. Detachment enables us to recognize the importance of the virtue and use it in the right way, according to the requirement.

Be Free From Expectations And Attain Everything Without Any Difficulty !

To have a desire for the good act done is to eat unripe fruit. To have a desire to get the result of what one does is like eating unripe fruit. It is like following a shadow that will never be got. On the other hand, to do things because there is joy in doing it is to enjoy putting in effort. This also ensures that there is fruit attained at the right time. When we are able to do things because we enjoy them, we are able to be free from expectations. And because we are free from expectations and desires, yet working towards our aim, we find ourselves attaining everything without any difficulty. We are patient and wait with joy for the fruit of our effort to ripen.

Experience Sweetness Of Life And Move Towards Success !

True sweetness is to be peaceful in every thought, word and deed. The one who is peaceful in thoughts is able to be sweet in words and positive in actions. Such a person is able to give others an experience of one's own positive qualities and those of others too. So there is beauty, positivity and sweetness perceived in such a person's life. When we are totally peaceful, we are able to experience our own inner beauty. In the silence of the mind, we are able to see everything in a positive way. So we have nothing that is a difficult situation, but only situations that bring out the best from within us. We experience the sweetness of life and continue to move on towards success.
