Have A Stronger Heart !

The heart is like a flower - unless it is open it cannot release its fragrance into the world. The fragrance of the heart is made up of the qualities and virtues of our spirit. Most of us have learned how to keep our heart closed in a world that would trample all over us if we let it. Being open hearted today seems to require tremendous courage. It is a courage which comes only when we realise that no one can hurt us, no matter what they say or do. They may hurt our body, but if we have realised we are spirit, nothing outside can touch us, if we so decide.

Detachment Helps Us To Be Free Of Dependency !

The one who is detached enjoys all facilities and yet is not dependent. For the ones who are detached, the facilities available are a medium for attaining something. They make the best use of each and everything available, for their benefit and the benefit of others. Yet they don't stop because of lack of facilities because they are able to find a way even if there is nothing available. When we are detached, our internal stage is beyond fluctuation. We are able to enjoy each and every thing that comes our way and be light constantly. Also it enables us to be free of dependency. So we are able to make use of all facilities, and yet be free from negative feelings when we are deprived of them.

Humility Makes You Powerful !

The one with humility is the one who can be creative. Creativity comes to the extent that the intellect is humble. Such an intellect is able to create something new. Because humility is a form of love, it brings the enthusiasm for creativity and the ability to bring newness in everything that is done. Humility gives us an experience of being a master, of being powerful. This power comes from the experience of being a constant learner, because we have no ego of what we already have. This mastery makes us creative, making us bring newness in every thing we do.

What Is Real Freedom ?

Freedom is a state of mind. Understanding the self is the key to freedom. The more one understands the self, the easier it is to be liberated from the chains of waste and negativity. Freedom is to be uninfluenced and unaffected, to be at peace with the self. Real freedom is to experience the true essence of one’s being.
