Think Positive To Achieve What You Desire !

When you renounce desire, you can achieve your fortune. 
At the end of each day, check if through out the day you had experienced unhappiness. Also check if your unhappiness is because of the desire that you have. Where there is desire there is unhappiness. In order to enjoy what's there in your fortune, each day make the practice firm, 'I get what is right for me according to my fortune. I have no desire because desire only gives me sorrow.

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.

Create Your Positive Thoughts !!

The mind is a faculty of the soul, the main function of which is to produce thoughts. The thoughts we create are energy. In one day we produce an average of thirty to forty thousand thoughts. How much energy does this represent? What do we do with it?

The mind works constantly, even when we are sleeping. We cannot separate ourselves from it, it is our inseparable companion. If you study your mind you will see that, as well as thinking, it imagines, remembers, dreams, associates, desires and even produces your feelings.

If you think about some incident that made you unhappy ten years ago, you will feel that unhappiness again, perhaps even more deeply than before. If you think of something that made you happy, you will also feel that happiness when you repeat the event in your mind.

If you create positive thoughts about yourself, you will feel good and your self-esteem will be strengthened, and if you create negative thoughts, you will feel depressed, with low self-esteem. The mind opens up the way to the self. By creating the right type of thoughts you can open up your inner potential again, and rediscover that as people we are full of positive qualities.

Know Others By Their Goodness, Not By Weaknesses !

Do you mentally keep a note of others' weaknesses and flaws? Does it become the basis on how you relate to them? 

How about giving this a try :

  • Realise that if you keep others' weaknesses in your mind, those weaknesses soon become part of you.
  • Recognise that all humans, despite their flaws have an innate goodness within them.
  • Decide to see the best and draw the best out of others.
  • Re-contextualise the other person by mentally noting at least one of their good qualities. 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.

Learn To Remove That Anger Within Us !

If we think, speak and act in an angry way, we leave an impression or memory of anger within our own consciousness which results in sanskara of anger to be born.

Within the sanskara is the recorded emotion and experience of our expression towards the object of our anger. The object is a particular person or situation. If we encounter the object of our anger the next day, it will trigger the emergence the recorded anger from within the sanskara. We then deepen the sanskara as we express more anger, even if we only 'think' anger. The emergence of this emotional energy from within our consciousness then stops us from interacting in a positive way. It clouds our mind and confuses our intellect, weakening and distorting our thoughts, decisions and behaviour. This often explains why we find it harder to connect and communicate with certain people in our life. Essentially we are carrying a negative image of the other person within our sanskara from a previous interaction with them. And when we see them again it emerges the energy within the sanskara, which then influences our ability to respond to them.
