Talk To Your Mind With Love and Control It !!

The way to control the mind is to talk to it with love.

Whenever I find my mind wandering I try to control it with force. I try to pull the mind and order it not to think about something. Yet I find that, the more I try to force the mind not to go in a particular direction, the more it tends to go there. The only way to control the mind is to talk to it with love. Just as I would explain to a child, I need to explain to it with love. This will make my mind my friend and I will be able to concentrate even in any undesirable situations.

Overcome limitations Being Positive !

To be free from negativity is to be free from limitation.

In many situations I tend to feel helpless and bound by different things and people coming my way. I continue to blame others for my difficulties, but find no solace or solution. I also look for solutions outside, but find none. The real cause of my limitation or my feeling of helplessness is not situation or people but my own weaknesses. I need to check and realize the weakness working within me, in that particular situation and I will be able to overcome the limitation.

Find Various Ways To Build A Beautiful Place Around You !

Ask yourself the question: "What would make my office or home a more peaceful place?"

There are many ways in which you can make your office/home a peaceful place, through your own behaviour and the way in which you organize your workplace (office) or home. By functioning from an inner peaceful state and being a peaceful listener, you are able to create meaningful and peaceful interactions with whom you work and stay.

As well as creating a peaceful state within, it is important to bring a sense of peace into your surroundings. You can make positive changes in the outer environment, which might promote and reflect inner peace. You can choose plants, pictures, colours, sounds and furnishings (furniture), which contribute to a sense of calm, peace and well-being. You can also do this by clearing noise and finding ways of creating a sense of openness or space in your office or home.

Being Good Can Help You Bring Someone Good in This World !

When the body has become unserviceable due to age or disease, or it suffers a fatal injury, the soul leaves the body. At the moment of death, the soul withdraws its energy from the organs of the body and vacates its seat in the middle of the forehead. Like a bird, it leaves the cage made of skin and bones, and taking its “sanskaras”, it enters into another, a new body, in the womb of the new mother. From the very birth, the “sanskaras” of a soul are apparent (visible); whether the "new-born" baby is happy, unbothered, sad, shy, mischievous, quiet, violent or agitated.

Death occurs at the precise moment when the account of giving and taking with other souls through a particular body is finished. The new birth is determined by the soul's account of “karmas” with another set of souls. One may be born into a cultured, wealthy family, another as a beggar, one may be born deaf, dumb, blind or crippled, another with a strong supple body. The type of body and the conditions of birth are determined by the thoughts and actions performed in the previous births.

Detachment adds quality and we give our best !!

Detachment adds quality to each and every action.

When we are detached, we will not be bound by the action itself, but will perform the action in a detached way. This means that we perform the action, yet we are not dependent on the fruits of the action. This automatically increases its quality. Then we would be free and uninfluenced by the bondage of the action. In any situation where we find ourselves doing a lot yet with a feeling of not attaining anything, we should ask ourselves if we are attached to the task at hand. The more we are attached, the quantity of work that we put in increases at the cost of the quality. When we are detached we are able to give our best in all that we do.
