Remember You Are A Soul And Not A Body !

If you know a little of yourself, you will have realised that you are more than meets your eyes in the mirror in the morning. What you see is not what you are. You see the form not the content, the body not the soul, the matter not the mind. In quiet and profound moments, weinnately know that is true. But we forget. The world tells us and wants us to believe that we are what we see - and we take the easy way out. We believe. That's why the awakening of spirit and the flowering of our spirituality (nothing to do with religion) means we have tokeep reminding ourselves, a hundred times a day, I am a soul - not a body, I am an eternal spirit - not a perishable piece of meat. I am quality, not quantity. I am. Otherwise, freedom is not possible. And if we are not free, in the deepest space inside our own being, we cannot be truly happy.

Stop And Listen To The Silence Within You !

Behind all creation is silence. Silence is the essential condition, the vital ingredient for all creation and all that is created. It is a power in its own right. The artist starts with a blank canvas - silence. The composer places it between and behind the notes. The very ground of your being, out of which comes all your thoughts, is silence. The way to silence is through meditation. When you arrive in your own silence you will know true freedom and real power. Stop, take a minute, and listen to the silence within you today. Then be aware of what disturbs your inner silence. It could be negative thoughts, memories, sensations. And when you are aware, you will know what is draining your creative power, and you will know what needs to change...on the inside! –

Humility Enables A Person To Give Unconditionally !

To be humble is to get a share of the outcome. There is surely the contribution of each and everyone in the success of a task. The efforts of the one who puts in his best with humility are recognized. Humility enables such a person to give unconditionally, to give without expecting anything in return, even without any visible gains. Since we don't expect anything we find that people are ready to give without conditions. We are able to appreciate whatever we get. We are also able to continue with what we've started. We naturally put in continuous effort for the success of the task, whether there is recognition or not.

Be Enthusiastic And Face All Challenging Situations With Courage !

Enthusiasm and alertness contribute to success. To have enthusiasm means to guarantee continuous effort. The one who is enthusiastic never stops with challenging situations, but makes effort to move forward. When enthusiasm is combined with alertness there is the ability to bring balance so that there is caution along with courage. When we are able to maintain our enthusiasm we are able to have courage in all situations. When we take up a step forward with courage we also experience the help that we get from others and also from God. We thus experience success at every step.
