True Love Needs to Be Pure and Unselfish

True love is felt by all who receive it. Sometimes we do find ourselves in situations where others are not responding to the love we are giving. We are trying to be understanding and accepting as much as possible but others don't seem to be recognizing it. In such a situation we begin to blame others and their lack of feelings and concern. Instead of blaming others when our love and concern is not being reciprocated, we need to check the quality of the love that we give. If there is even a trace of selfishness or if it is mixed with expectations, our love will not be able to reach out and touch the hearts of others. So we need to make sure that our love is pure and unselfish.

Have Good Wishes for Others and Move Forward in Life

To become worthy of blessings means to make success easy. Thinking of benefit for the self increases to such an extent that it sometimes takes on the form of selfishness. When we are selfish we stop thinking about others or the effect that our action is going to have on them. Then we are not able to move forward with lightness because the good wishes and blessings of others are not with us. In each and every action of ours we need to first check if it is going to be beneficial for us as well as for others. As much as there is benefit for others too in the task that we are doing, that much the good wishes of others will be there for the task. With these good wishes we will be able to move forward much faster and achieving success will be easy.

The One Who Is Powerful Shows the Practical Proof of Success

The one who is powerful shows the practical proof of success instead of just talking about it. It is usually very easy for us to talk about how to do things best, it is as much easy to tell others and give directions. But the one who is powerful is not just satisfied with mere words or proving to others about his success. He is more concerned more about being successful. We need to check if we are applying in our life what we are talking about. We need to see to it that whatever we speak about, we must put into practice. Only then will we find improvement and progress in our life. Then there will be no more the need to talk about our success but our life will reveal how successful we are. We will then be an inspiration to many.

Wisdom Is To Learn from One's Experiences

Wisdom is to learn from one's experiences. Things do not always go smoothly. In spite of the difficulties that we are faced with, the wisdom within us enables us to learn from all that happens. Naturally with this learning we would experience progress. If not, we will only be caught up with the past and lose the present too. When we find ourselves thinking about the past, or caught up with it, we need to redirect our thoughts towards a more constructive goal. We have to see if we have benefited in some way with the particular experience of the past. Our wisdom enables us to learn from everything that happens.

Wisdom Is To Recognize Obstacle from Distance

Wisdom is to recognize an obstacle from a distance and be prepared for it. Our wisdom enables us to recognize the obstacles in advance and be prepared for them. In this state there'll be no fear even while seeing these obstacles. Also, wisdom is not just to go on hoping things will be all right but to make preparations knowing well the dangers ahead. We should make our mental state in such a way that we are always alert. Our preparation should be such that whatever the situation we might have to face, we are ready. When we make preparations in this way we will be able to handle every situation that comes up without any fear.
