Virtue Is Love In Action !

"Wow...that's beautiful!" Is either a cry or a thought when faced with the mountain sunset, a spectacular view or a well formed man or woman. But where is the beauty, where is the appreciation of beauty, where is the ability to discern beauty? It is within our own consciousness. For the essence of who and what we are is beauty itself. The essence of beauty is not found in the body, a face or a mountain - they only stir the essence of beauty within our own spirit. And that beauty is not only something we taste within ourselves, but it emerges in our character as virtue, and in our life as care. For what is virtue, but love in action. The next time you say, "That's beautiful!" know that you speak of yourself, and it is you who are beautiful. Always were, always will be.

Look Beyond The Situation And See What It Has To Teach !

To transform waste into something purposeful and powerful is to remain light. To successfully transform something waste into something powerful and meaningful is to look beyond the situation and see what it has to teach. When there is the ability to do this, there is the ability to go on in spite of the most challenging obstacles. There is the deep understanding that nothing happens without a purpose. There is no time or energy wasted in wasteful company. When we understand the significance of everything that happens, we are able to transform in a second. So we are able to remain light because we are able to put in sincere effort and free ourselves from the burden of waste. We also find that there is no problem in our relationships too, as we are able to understand others and behave accordingly.

Analyze And Then Act Keeping End Result In Mind !

To have a clear aim of where the action will lead is to be successful in everything. Many a times it so happens that one acts immediately seeing a situation. But the one who is successful analyses the situation and predicts the outcome of the action that he performs and then acts keeping the end result in mind. Because of knowing the consequences of the actions before actually performing that action, he is able to continue putting in effort in spite of the challenges and difficulties. So he continues to give his best to the task. When he is able to give time to himself to think before performing any action, he is able to take the opportunity to be clear in his thinking. The consequences of the action he wishes to take are clear in his mind and so, the action taken to overcome the situation is right. Hence, he recieves easy and sure success.
