Love Keeps Us Growing Positively

Don't be afraid of your sins. Because God will never stop loving you. He knows that love keeps a child growing. So just keep thinking of what He wants you to do, and do it.

Cleanliness Brings Positivity Within

Cleanliness means no waste within. To be totally clean means there is not a trace of negativity or waste within. Even in the most complicated situations there is clarity within. The mind is clear and clean so there is clarity in words and actions also. Every decision is taken with a clear mind and so whatever is done is naturally accurate. When there is cleanliness in the heart, we are able to win the love of those around me and also of God. We find that we become a mirror for the others and they are able to see their own perfection through us. We find that we are able to save a lot of time as we are able to see things for what they are and because there is clarity in our thoughts.

Forgiveness Brings Healing and Positive Change

The method to bring about change is forgiveness. Forgiveness means to have good wishes, cooperation, love, respect and faith. This becomes like a blessing for the one who needs to bring about change. Words spoken will then be powerful and easy. This will naturally bring faith in the other person in order to bring about natural transformation. When we give only correction we forget to forgive. But when we first forgive we are able to remain cool and easy. We are also able to forget the intensity of the mistake. So when we forgive and forget in this way, our forgiveness itself becomes a correction for the other person.

True Love Gives Ability to Forgive and Forget

True love means the ability to forgive and forget. When there is love there is the ability to look at only specialties. Even if the other person makes a mistake, there is only the conscious awareness of his specialties. So it becomes easy to forgive the mistake committed by him. When there is real forgiveness the mistake is totally forgotten and the future interactions with that person are free from the negative attitude. When we are able to forgive the mistakes made by others, we are able to forget them easily also. So our mind is free from the burden of waste of all the past mistakes. We are able to be light even when we are faced with the negativity of the other person. We are never caught up with attitudes about people and will become successful in our relationship with others.

Meaning of A True Leader

To be a leader means to invoke challenges. Each challenge actually brings forth some hidden strength, some latent power. The one who is able to understand this, is able to face and in fact invoke challenges. Such a person with constant and unshaken faith moves on towards victory. Such a person becomes an inspiration for many and thus is a true leader. When we know the art of facing and learning from challenges, we are able to remain fearless in spite of the several challenges. Much more than that, we are able to actually have the courage to invoke challenges understanding the fact that challenges makes us stronger.

Truth Never Needs to be Proved

Truth never needs to be proved. When the truth of what is said is challenged, there is naturally a protest. Words spoken after that are usually defensive and argumentative. This leads only to waste talk and arguments because no one is willing to listen at that time. But truth is that which is revealed on it own and never needs to be proved. When we recognize the fact that we are right and are aware of this, we never feel the need to prove it. We never argue our point but have the self-respect of what we are. So even if we are challenged we remain unaffected. We understand that a real diamond shines on even when it is lying with stones or covered with dust.
