Spiritual Progress Is Important !

There is benefit for you in every situation. If, that is, you know how to look for it. The idea behind steady spiritual progress is to see every circumstance and situation (particularly those that challenge you) as a tailor-made lesson in your personal plan for self- development. For example, in a situation where hurtful or angry words were exchanged, why not see it as the chance either to perceive things about your own character which need changing or to rehearse some virtue or quality that you need to put into practice more often? Actually, we should be grateful for the opportunity to evaluate ourselves. In this way you can transform anything into a constructive lesson. Never think that you've learned enough and now can stop. You should love it when people try to correct you or give you advice. It keeps you alert and gives you plenty of opportunity to put your truth into practice. It's a sign of great danger to be unable to accept criticism and instead use your understanding to criticise others.Realise deeply the significance of every moment, and your spiritual progress will be assured.

Your Experience Becomes An Inspiration To Many !

To be experienced means to be an inspiration to many. Words heard can be forgotten, but that which is experienced remains as a deep impression that makes one move forward constantly. The positive experience acts as a stimulant so that others too take benefit from this experience. The actions of such a person are always beneficial. When we have an experience from which we learn, we are able to leave a deep impression for further growth. We are constantly learning from every single thing that happens in our life and we are able to sustain it as a beautiful experience for our life. So this learning becomes a powerful support for those who wish to change.

Possess A Stronger Heart To Serve God !

It is so important to experience God's mercy and forge a strong relationship with God as our Mother. Knowing that a heart that has been hurt becomes hard, we understand God is the only One who can heal our hearts. Each one should ask him or herself : "What can I do to make my heart softer?" There is such a need of mercy. We have to make our hearts softer and stronger, because a strong heart doesn't experience pain and we know that if we experience sorrow, we cannot serve God.

Have Positive Thoughts To Create A Foundation For A Beautiful Life !

The foundation of a beautiful life is positive thoughts. The one who is constantly thinking positive is able to keep his words positive too. His actions would surely be positive also and would be those that bring benefit to the self and others. So to have positive thoughts means to make a beautiful contribution in making one's own life worthwhile. When we continue to have positive thoughts, we create a foundation for a beautiful life. We are able to enjoy the beauty of whatever situations come up in our life. We are able to strengthen this foundation further because each positive thought multiplies as time passes by. So we are able to create a fertile ground for getting the best fruit from life.

Love Everyone And Experience Joy Of Life !

Love spreads positivity. The one who is loving is not limited by circumstances and his love is not restricted only to certain people. On the other hand, it is revealed in each and every act thus colouring everything and every relationship with the beauty of that love. To be loving is to be constantly a giver. It also means to forgive others easily and help them to move forward. When we are loving constantly, I are able to experience the joy of life. We are able to exchange the gifts of pure feelings and find our life enriched with them. We are able to enjoy the beauty of relationships without having to feel the bondage due to expectations. Each moment of our life is filled with beauty and joy.
