Blend Your Qualities With Others !

To appreciate variety is to harmonise. When there is recognition that each human being is unique with his own unique set of capabilities, there is the ability to respect him for what he is. Then all attempts are made to harmonise with him instead of trying to make him just like oneself. So energy is channelised in the right direction and one becomes an inspiration for others too. To appreciate variety means to see the beauty and specialities of each and every individual. It means to appreciate the natural positive qualities in everyone and learn to blend our own qualities with theirs. This gives us the satisfaction of the beauty of relationships, because there are no expectations and no disappointments.

Try To benefit All Persons By Bringing True Change !

True change brings benefit to all. When there is someone who is behaving in a way that is not right, the usual reaction is to have negative feelings for that person. All words and actions based on this negative attitude will naturally create negativity. Instead it is good to see what could be done to benefit the other person. Raising complaints only takes away inner peace. When we bring about a change that benefits even the person who is making the mistake, we are able to remain in peace with all types of people. We are not worried about why a person is behaving in a particular way, but we are able to see what is to be done in order to remove that particular negativity. The hatred is not for the person but for the negativity itself.

Be Committed To Bring Out Our Inner Perfection !

The one who has the aim to be perfect is the one who learns from obstacles. The higher the aim, the more the obstacles that comes one's way. Just as a perfect idol is one that has been chiseled a great deal, each obstacle comes to remove some or the other defect from within. The one, who understands this little secret, is able to use each obstacle as a beautiful learning for growth, and a chance to express the best qualities from within. When we are committed to bringing out our inner perfection, we are never deterred by the temporary situations that come our way. We move on with confidence, taking time to look within and recognize the hidden potential within us. We are able to get closer and closer to the perfection that we always seek.
