Peace Brings Wonders to Life !!

Peace has a number of synonyms, which all have slightly different shades of meaning: 

The feeling of contentment and being completely full with no need for further additions to the self; a feeing of satisfaction, of wholeness of the self. 

There are no disturbances or waves in the mind, like a pool of water that is clear and still with not even a ripple to disturb it. 

Tranquility is the state of harmony in nature and in ourselves that keeps everything in balance naturally. 

In this state, there are no sounds of uncontrolled thoughts jumping around like a monkey in the mind; our thoughts become essenceful, returning to the point, with no expansion; it is an economy of thinking that creates quietness. 

There is no movement of thoughts. I remain absorbed in one thought and, in the stillness of silence, I am at rest, with a feeling of complete detachment from everything. 

Peace has the meaning of harmony, balance, order and freedom: when we are free from waste and negativity, then we exist fully serene, fully at peace with everything. 

Peace is my original energy and treasure and with the practice of meditation I step inside and experience it.

Life is like a Pendulum - Experience Both Extremes & Still Centre !

Life is like a Pendulum 

In our quest to seek balance, like a pendulum, 
we sometimes swing from one side to the other. 

Sometimes we swing wildly and maybe that's because 
we must explore both extremes and all points in between. 
If we don't, there's the possibility that we may get drawn to what's not been examined.

The still centre, which we crave, 
is the result of visiting all possibilities.

Start Meditation, Charge Your life !!!

Meditation helps me to acquire that discipline of finishing negative and wasteful thoughts i.e. inculcate the power to pack up. 

As the habit of self-observation develops, it doesn't take long to understand how negative thoughts and feelings literally negate my central aim, of re-emerging my true nature. Negativity drains the battery of the soul faster than anything else does.

Find the Better Way of Doing Things To Move Towards Progress !!

True progress brings progress in others as much as for the self. 

It is usually believed that self-progress and progress of others are totally separate. It is believed that where there is thought for the progress of the self, there is selfishness and there is no benefit for those around. In fact, selfishness in an extreme form can also have a negative influence on those around. In whatever we do we have to check and see if there is any benefit for others along with whatever benefit we are getting. If there isn't we can check to see if there is a better way of doing what we are doing which could have a positive influence on at least one person. Then we will find ourselves benefitting doubly. We will get the blessings from others along with the personal benefit we get.

Control Frustration & Notice Own Complements !!

To overcome your frustration with people whose nature is the opposite of yours, acknowledge how they complement you.

If your talent is to see the big picture, who pays attention to the small details? Dynamism is balanced by gentleness, frankness by subtlety.

Today, notice how others' strengths complement yours.
