Have Faith....Fly High !!

Like a bird in flight, your purpose in life is to soar high above the world, to seer a course with the wind and enjoy the freedom of flight.

You have the capacity to fly in harmony with the flock and experience the joyous solitude of your own company. 

Just have faith in yourself, have faith in life, let go and fly.

Positive Thoughts Make Our Mind Contended !

To recognize the inner positivity is to be connected to our divinity. 

When we recognize that we are pure beings with a lot of positivity inside, we are able to tap that inner divinity that lies hidden. Negative experiences and influences do colour our inner divinity. But in fact, we would love to be connected to our inner divine virtues and experience positivity under all circumstances. 

Whatever I want is what I am. In all my interactions and connections I would love to experience feelings of peace, love and happiness more than anything else. And so that is what I am. When I am connected to what I really want, I am able to experience the divinity within. Whenever a negative experience takes me away from the real me, I just need to remind myself of who I really am and what I really want.

Understand Behaviour & Take Steps Towards Positivity !!

To be cool is to work to build relationships. 

It is easy to speak negatively when we do not like something about someone. We first react to them in our mind and so tend to get angry. Our words and behaviour would then naturally be negative and insulting too. This further widens the gap and breaks the relationship. When someone does something undesired, we first need to try and understand his behaviour. Every person has a reason to behave the way he does. If we can’t understand at that time, we at least need to give it time. The more we react to the other person and his behaviour, the greater the distance that is created. So we need to begin the first step of positivity by recognizing some positivity in him.

Break from the Past & Free Yourself !!

To pack up from the past is to finish the negative impact of the past. 

We usually find ourselves to be slaves of the past. The situation has occurred and has gone by but we are not able to forgive and forget the past. We continue to think about it again and again. This brings about the same feelings and experience of the past and we are simply caught up in it. We need to free our mind of the past. We need to see what we have learnt from the past situation, take that and be free from it. We need to forgive and forget. We can forget only when we forgive and we can forgive only when we learn. When we take the learning from every situation. We are able to be free from being a slave of the past.

Be Committed ... Be Positive !!

Commitment to the self means to have commitment to remove weaknesses.

Commitment for the self means to have the recognition of one's own weakness. It also means to have a clear vision for one's own progress and perfection. This will then create a powerful identity within which will enable us to do away with weaknesses. Let this day be committed for removing some weakness within myself that is creating an obstacle for others and myself. When I do this I will help myself and create a positive influence around. Then there will be only positive growth.

When we're working in a team, we need to make sure that we inform all the details to everyone involved in the task.

The task is easy to accomplish when those involved 
feel part of the team. So, make sure you communicate clearly, simply and openly.

This will naturally create a flow of contributions and 
enable the team to give their best to the task.

Stay Calm, Give Yourself Some Time !!

Some circumstances are just beyond your control. Often, all you can do is accept this fact, hang in there, stay calm and do your best.

Try to curb your expectations and be understanding of yourself and others. Everything else will work out in its own time.

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt.Abu.

Interaction Helps Bring Confidence !

The one who knows the art of connecting to others is successful. 

We are normally good to people who are good to us. But when someone is not behaving well, we tend to change our attitude, our response and our behaviour towards that person. We wait for the other person to change, in order to change ourselves. So neither do we find change in others nor in ourselves. When we know the art of perceiving others’ specialities and connecting to them, we are always successful. We are then not dependent on the other person’s behaviour for our own growth. We are able to see each one’s positive aspect and take it in ourselves too. So we are richer with each interaction.

Cooperation Helps Get Bigger Goals ...!!

Trust wins cooperation. 

If there is the thought that we can do things ourselves without other people’s help, it means that we have arrogance of our own potential or we are not able to have trust for others. This lack of trust doesn’t allow us to use others. potential for the benefit of the task. So we are deprived of a very useful resource and we will not be able to be happy. We need to understand the fact that there is greater success in cooperation. It is much more useful to invest our time and resources in training and developing others’ potential. This brings about the best from people and so there is a greater contribution and hence greater success in every task that we take up.

Bring Positive Change in Others !!

You can bring transformation in others when you have faith in them. 

When you blame others for their weakness they will not able to change themselves. Instead when you have faith in others, it enables them to have faith in themselves too. This will give them the courage to work on themselves and change their negativity into positivity. Think of one person whom you want a change in. Tell yourself again and again that you believe that he will change. Also whenever you interact with this person let it be with only with the positive in him. 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt. Abu.

Move One Step At A Time !!

Instead of changing many different things at once, make a small change and when you're comfortable with that change, move on to the next small change. Notice small improvements and bask in your inner appreciation. Your confidence will increase. If there's one or two slip ups, cut yourself some slack. Stay positive and get back on track. Also, have resolutions reminders. Then you'll be less likely to stray from them!

Faith Gives You Confidence & Gives You Hapiness !!

Happiness stays in the life of the one who has faith in the self. 

When there is faith, there is obvious happiness visible in thought, word and action. Whatever the obstacles come by, faith in the self brings the confidence to face all obstacles very easily and happily. Whatever the task you take up remind yourself again and again that you are going to succeed in it. This gives you the faith to go on with happiness in spite of seeming difficulties.

Throw Away Anger & Ego To Move Towards Positivity !!

'I expect' is the great illusion, which converts itself into demanding rights without due respect for others. 

Anger in all its forms is a direct result of an expectation not being fulfilled and brings cries (although sometimes silent ones) of 'They should have done this', 'Why did this happen?' or 'Don't you know better?' Disappointment, accusations and demands are violent energies, which we throw around very naturally and easily in our daily life when our expectations are not fulfilled. They are like a burning fire that eats away at our original spiritual qualities, turning them to a dust that pollutes the self and others. 

Instead, let us continue to practice returning our thoughts to the self and remembering our original source of peace. In that experience of deep, natural peace, we will find balance and clarity and the ability to tolerate and adjust to the unexpected. 

One of the keys of meditation practice is to quickly gather our thought energy and take it inside to connect to our original qualities, no matter what may be happening outside, or even inside! 

Let me disconnect from the external and plug in to the internal energies that support me and then I will be able to say goodbye to anger very easily.

Learn To Tolerate & See The Improvement !!

Those with the power of tolerance will be content and will make others content too. 

When you tolerate, you will find yourself improving. This will make you feel satisfied with yourself and you will become a support for others too. This will make them content with themselves and with you too. Each day make it a point to learn at least one thing from all the suggestions that you get throughout the day. When you keep this in mind you will be able to tolerate even negative comments very easily and you will find yourself improving.

Communicate With Your Inner Peace !!

Peace is like glue that puts back together all the broken pieces that make us peaceless. 

So, every now and then (maybe as you eat or drink)  become quiet and reconnect with your inner peace and put  all the pieces of your inner world back together to make peace. 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt. Abu.

Commit To Tasks That Are Reasonable !!

Saying no isn't about refusing to do tasks. 

It's all about considering whether other people's demands on you are reasonable or not, as well as being reasonable with the demands you put on yourself. 

Be responsibly selfish! 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt. Abu.

Its Only Now.... Later Never Happens !!

Procrastination kills; 
it kills the idea, the motivation and the will and we lose the power of the moment.

To stay creative and to stay motivated, act now! 
If we leave it for later, it may never happen. 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt. Abu.

Feel Love & Experience The Difference !!

Just as the bird has to let go of the branch in order to fly, in the same way we also need to let go to experience and express love. 

The branches we hold on to are our attachments (people and objects). When we mentally hold on to something or someone, we open ourselves to feel fear, pain, anger and possessiveness.

Love is about letting go and letting others be. It's about appreciating and accepting without dependency and expectation. 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt. Abu.

Give Some Time To Your Mind ... Let It Relax !!

We're always commenting in our minds, 
even when it's nothing to do with us. 
All this unnecessary chatter creates clutter & 

takes our mind away from being present and calm. 

So, here's a challenge for you: 

whilst aware of your surroundings, 
the sounds, 
other people's behaviours, 
your thoughts & 
quietly observe, without making a comment in your mind; 
zip up your mind; & let the mind - just be. 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt. Abu.

Take a Break & Use the Time to Get Creative .. !!

Slow down the train of your thoughts and become mindful of the 'gap', 
the spaces in between your thoughts.

Take moments through the day to enjoy the 'still spaces' in your mind. 
Use these 'gaps' as creative spaces, from which innovative thoughts arise. 

~   Brahma Kumaris, Mt.Abu

See Problems As Opportunities to Grow !!

Problems have within them the very real potential to make us stronger, as unshakeable as a mountain. 


They're an opportunity to draw on your inner strength and continue. It gives you the steadiness to succeed and the wisdom to slip past the problems undisturbed.

Action Your Sayings To Build Trust !

When there's a gap between what you say & what you do, 

both your integrity & people's trust in you seeps away.

Make effort to close the gap between your words & actions.
Walk your Talk. Don't make promises you can't deliver. 
Do what you say you're going to do.

Respect Other's Choices & Learn What Made Them Make Those Choices !

How often do you want to change the choices other people make? 

Next time, respect other people's choices and remember:

- People have good reasons for the choices they make.

- Each person learns about life at their own pace, through their own pace, through their own experiences and the lessons they need to learn are not yours. 

- You can't change anyone. You can only change yourself.

Unplug from all the electronic and digital technology. 

Now breathe and relax. 
Tune into your inner space and experience inner peace. 
Enjoy solitude and refresh your energy.

Powers That Recharge The Soul - Part 2

The Power to Discriminate
Like  the trained eye of a jeweller who discriminates the real from the  imitation, I can discriminate what is true and what is false.

The Power to Face
Nothing seems like an obstacle, but rather a stepping stone to victory. To lack this power means to be dominated by external dramas.

The Power to Cooperate
I do not feel like I am competing against anyone, but rather I am helping all. Here, the surrender of ego is needed.

The Power to Withdraw
I can withdraw from the organs of the body, and become the seed; detached, and the observer of this drama of life. Contentment comes.

Powers That Recharge The Soul - Part 1

These are powers that recharge the soul. As the soul comes into action, it experiences the practical form of these powers. 

The Power To Pack Up 
In a second I can pack up all wasteful thinking, so the soul becomes light and free of burdens and worries.

The Power To Tolerate 
Irritation and annoyance disappear, and nothing disturbs my light frame of mind. The fragrance of this power is attractive to all.

The Power to Accommodate
Like the ocean that merges all that flows into it, I merge all that happens; so past is past, and the future seems clear and bright.

The Power of Judgement
I can accurately assess any situation with clarity and confidence

To Be Continued.....

Discover Yourself & Use your Brilliance !

We might not be brilliant at everything, but we have virtues and an inner brilliance. 

However, it's most most likely that these virtues are lying dormant, at the core of our being. 
Tap into your brilliance by creating time to discover and experience your virtues. 
Then develop your inner brilliance by activating and using your virtues in action.

Concentrate on Positive Thoughts & Feel the Change !!

When you choose to carry the past around, life weighs heavy. 
There's equally too much baggage when you hold on to the uncertainty of tomorrow.
To travel light and enjoy the journey, consolidate all that you've learned from the past and let the rest go. 
Then focus all your energy in the NOW.

Instead of beginning to change things and situations that are going wrong, I need to work at the seed, i.e my thoughts. 
I need to keep my thoughts positive under all circumstances, which will make my actions positive too and I slowly find things changing for the better. 

~   Brahma Kumaris, Mt.Abu

Start Your Day with Positive Note !

Develop the habit of getting up early and sitting in silence. 

Read a peaceful thought and reflect on it. 
Write down some ideas about this thought. 
Return to silence, allowing these ideas to take root inside you. 
Share your ideas with a person close to you. 

This practice will help you accept and cope with conflicts and difficult situations. It will help you stay happy and peaceful for the rest of the day.

Try to Find the Positiveness Around You !!

The positive is there, in everything. 
All you need to do is simply look for it!

In every person, the best is there; your opportunity is to recognize it. In every problem, the solution is there; your responsibility is to provide it. In every setback, the success is there; your adventure is to discover it. In every crisis, the reason is there; your challenge is to understand it.

Make it a goal this week is to find it.

Be Good & Connect With Life !!

Today, when human beings seek love, meaning and purpose, they first connect horizontally (with others) rather than vertically (with the Supreme Source). This leads to a greater loss of energy and eventually dissatisfaction and emptiness. 

The vertical connection liberates the self from becoming dependent on someone else and from having too many expectations. After the vertical connection, there can then be the horizontal connection with others, that is, with the outside or external. 

No matter how bad people may seem, they possess at least one virtue. 
Be like the humming bird and pick out the sweetness of everyone's character.

Keep Flowing In Life & Enjoy The Adventures !!

Drops of water gather to become a small stream, 
the stream grows to become a river, 
the river passes through many stages, 
many obstacles, and yet it keeps on flowing. 

Life too flows like a river. 
And like the river, the purpose of life is the adventure of the journey, 
not the destination.

Be Pure & Happy to Enjoy The Benefits !!

My heart is full and open. 
Flowing with pure good feelings and good wishes for everyone. 
I follow my spontaneous instinct to give and I am totally happy. 

There is a part of you that is perfect and pure. 
It is untouched by the less-than-perfect characteristics 
you have acquired by living in a less than perfect world. 
This part of you is a still and eternal star. 
Make time to reach it and this will bring you untold benefit.

Enhance Your Beliefs & See The Change !!

Each belief we hold carries a magnetic field that draws a similar energy towards us. 
The more conviction we have that a belief is true, the more powerful its magnetic pull.
If we believe we are lucky, we attract good fortune. 
Our worst fears & greatest hopes magnetically attract those experiences to us. 
Today, let's challenge the beliefs we hold about ourselves.

Love Self & You Will Automatically Love Others !

You're the most important person in your life, 
So fall in love with yourself! How? 

By appreciating the best in you - your qualities, your inner beauty.

If you don't love you how do you expect others to love you? 
And when you love yourself, 

you're able to love others unconditionally. 

~   Brahma Kumaris, Mt.Abu

Erase the Need to Please Others.... !!

Erase the Need to Please Others. 

Are you a people pleaser in the workplace? If you are, you might be taking on more work than you should. You might also find yourself avoiding the hard conversations because you don't want to rock the boat. Imagine how different you'll be in the workplace, if you were to stop being a people pleaser?

Instead of expecting others to be the source of your self worth; take responsibility for how you feel, understand how you work best and recognise the value you bring to your work situation.  

~   Brahma Kumaris, Mt.Abu.
