The Power of Realization Brings Permanent Transformation

The power of realization brings permanent transformation. To have the power of realization means to have the power to understand what is right and to have the commitment to the right thing. So, if a mistake is committed, when there is the realization, there is easy and permanent transformation. So the same mistake is never committed again. When we have the power of realization, we will never experience difficulty in bringing about a change, because we have actually understood the importance of bringing about change.

Failure Is a Process of Strengthening that Leads to Success

To fail means there is the need to work a little harder. To fail doesn't means to be a failure but it only means that it will take a little longer before success can be reached. It gives an indication that more effort has to be put in. So when things are done in a different way, it becomes possible to move towards success. Failure in a particular task is a process of strengthening that leads to success. During the time of failure, when we understand the significance behind the incident, we are able to be free from negative feelings of fear or disheartenment. Then we are able to learn the right lesson from it and move ahead. Even in our worst failures, we experience constant progress and we move on towards success.

Work with Joy to Enjoy the Richness of Life

To work with joy is to be free from tiredness. When there is the happiness and joy of doing something, one can go on putting in effort even in the most difficult circumstances. For having done everything with happiness, there will be the inner quality revealed in each and every task. The happiness within will spread around to others too. As we never leave our inner joy, and are constantly in touch with our inner qualities, we are able to enjoy everything that life brings. Nothing will then be experienced as work, but we feel everything to be entertainment. We will be able to enjoy the richness of life even when there is something actually difficult.

Greatness Lies in Being Humble

Greatness lies in being humble. A seed grows only when it is mingled with the mud. In the same way, the one who is great is naturally humble. He understands the truth that only when there is humility will there be success. Humility gives the power to bow down without reducing one's own self-respect. When we are humble we are able to be experience our inner greatness, which naturally keeps us set on the seat of our self-respect. So when the situation demands, we have no problem bowing down. We are able to allow the situations to work on us and we are able to strengthen ourselves from within under all circumstances.

The Power to Merge Brings Success in Relationships

The power to merge brings success in relationships. The specialty of the ocean is to merge. The most beautiful pearl is made of the dirt that is thrown into the ocean. So also the power to merge actually allows one to look at the positivity in spite of the obvious negativity that is expressed by the other person. So the relationship with the other person is only with their positivity. When we are able to merge the negativity of others, and look at the positive aspect in them instead, we can automatically experience being light and positive within. Also we find others relating to us with their positivity. We are able to be successful in our relationships with others, however difficult the personality traits of the other person may be.

Experience the Power of Unity

To understand and accept people's ideas is to increase the power of unity. When one suggests something and the other accepts, it gives power to the gathering. So instead of expecting others to accept suggestions, it is better to understand and provide with what the other person needs. The more something is given with generosity there is happiness for the one who is receiving and for the one who is giving. And there is power because of being together in the task. If we take something with force we find that others give it to us only temporarily. Instead if we give with happiness, we find that others are able to share with us with happiness. So what we give, we find, remains with us permanently. There is an experience of fullness and the happiness of having attained even while giving. And with this we are able to experience the power of unity, and the joy of doing things together.

Love Is A Powerful Force

Love is a powerful force. It can take us to great heights and leave us feeling light and airy. Yet it has been the most abused and misused force. Many degraded things pass for love. True love is based on understanding, mutual trust and respect and not simply on transient emotions. Love is being in balance, that is, in harmony with the self, God and each other. Love dwells in the soul. We must allow this love to flow out and around us. Without love, all of life's treasures are locked away from our vision and experiences, for indeed 'love is the key.'
