Handle Responsibility In A Positive Way !

Responsibility enables us to give our best in all we do. When we are responsible to do something, we tend to feel burdened. This could be because responsibility sometimes takes on the form of interference. That is we take on those tasks too that are not connected with us. To such an extent that we even begin to do those things that others are capable of doing by themselves. If we ever find ourselves feeling burdened, we need to ask ourselves if we are taking on any responsibility which is not ours. When we recognise the fact that responsibility doesn't mean taking on everything on our head, we will be able to lighten our own burden. At all times we need to have this attention that we need to take responsibility but if the situation is not our business or someone else is in charge, we don't have to get caught in it.

Experience The Specialty Of Doing A Task !

An elevated consciousness brings specialty to the task being done. As is the consciousness, so is the feeling behind the task, and therefore its quality. Just to perform action and finish the tasks at hand does not bring specialty and accuracy as much as it should. When the consciousness is special, that means before a task is performed there is a thought given both to the task and to the self, there is specialty revealed in the task. When we are able to start each task with a special consciousness, like "I am victorious", or "I am powerful" or "this task is for the benefit of all", we are able to experience the specialty of doing the task. We are also able to increase our state of self-respect, whatever the task or however simple it maybe.

Keep a Positive Attitude Towards Others !

True help is to help people discover their own specialities. When others' negativities or weaknesses are perceived, it is essential to look at their positivity or specialities too. This will naturally bring love and positivity in the relationship and there will be an encouragement of that positivity. So even if that person has no recognition or has not been using his speciality, an encouragement of it by others will naturally enable him to begin to use it. Making others aware of their specialities and subtly encouraging them to use these specialities is a great help that we can do for others. When we are able to give this unique help and cooperation, we not only find benefit for others, but we are also able to get the good wishes of others. Even others naturally become positive with our positive attitude.

Guide Your Mind In The Right Direction !

To be healthy internally is to make the best use of all treasures. A healthy intellect acts like a mother, always showing the right path. When internally one is strong, there is the natural ability to treat the mind with love and guide it towards the right direction. Such a healthy state of mind naturally enables the recognition and the proper utilisation of everything available. Once we have learnt the art of guiding our mind in the right direction with love, we then never experience the difficulty of having to bring back the mind to the right thinking. Because the mind is totally under control in a very easy and natural way and we don't have to control it or force it to think or not to think in a particular way.
