Correct Yourselves At The Right Time !

When there is real transformation we never repeat our mistakes. When any mistake of ours keeps repeating again and again, it becomes part of our nature, a habit and then we make it an excuse and defend ourselves saying, 'this is just the way I am, this is my nature, etc.' When we justify our mistake we will not be able to work on it to remove it and we find that it is only further strengthened. Once we have recognised the fact that our nature has become such that the mistake keeps repeating again and again, we need to make an attempt to change it without giving any excuse to ourselves or to others. Unless our attitude towards the mistake changes, i.e. we stop justifying it, we will not be able to do away with it.

Be Free From Expectations !

Success in relationships comes when we are free from expectations. In our daily interactions if we find that we are not able to get along with someone, our usual reaction is to avoid that person altogether in order to avoid the conflict. But that is not really a solution. Unless we recognise why we are not able to get along with that person we will face the same problem with someone else. When we are not able to get along with someone we need to recognise the fact that the problem is not with the person but with our own expectations. When our expectations are not being met we have a conflict which is reflected in our relationship with that person. So we need to work at recognizing and removing these expectations.

Have Positive feelings For Others !

Feelings change intentions, thus changing actions too. When there are negative feelings like jealousy or hatred towards another person, those feelings naturally create misunderstanding. Even if the other person has a good feeling while doing something, a negative intention is attributed and this naturally changes one's own behaviour or response making it negative too. When there is the slightest bit of negative feeling within us for someone, it naturally creates further negativity from others too. We find everything we come across to be negative, like the one who wears colored glasses sees everything to be of that particular color.

An Intelligent And Positive Message !

It is wise to bend rather than to break. Those who change will get spiritual wisdom. Conversely, those who have wisdom will decide to change. Change is the first law of Nature.
