Have The Determination To Bring Our Thoughts Into Practice !

Determination is a combination of single-mindedness and flexibility. 

When you are determined, you're sure of what you have to achieve and you're able to move in the right direction. And when an obstacle comes your way, you're able to take it in your stride; like a river you can forge your route towards the destination.

If we are stuck or trapped in our own thoughts we will not have control over them. When we observe them, we separate ourselves from them and we provide a space, and this is how we can control them and channel them in the direction we wish. In order to have control over something we must look at it from a certain distance, like an impartial observer. This practice helps us to realise the influences, both positive and negative, that there are in our life. 

Observing our thoughts (which we do in the process of meditation) is the first step in understanding and, in the last analysis, taking full responsibility for them. 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.
