At Peace With Time - The Key To Relaxed Living (Part 2)

Not only is your strength reduced by the way that you live the past and project onto the future, but also how you live in this moment. When, for example, you oppose the present and have resistances, these consume your energy and cause you stress. If you accept the present you can flow flexibly without wasting your energy. Accepting does not mean submitting yourself or feeling a victim of what is happening now. From acceptance, you confront and transform. If we learn to live the dimensions of time in a healthy way we will keep up our vitality, we will heal the past and we will feel at peace with it. Accepting the present and trusting in the future helps us to be well.

Accepting the present means stopping comparing yourself with others; you want what the other has, their money, their talents, their beauty, their personality, their achievements, their virtues, etc. So, instead of being grateful for what you have and accepting yourself as you are, you try to have and be like the other. In this way, you are never satisfied. The dissatisfaction causes you a constant unhappiness that reduces your vitality. When you feel happy and satisfied your energy flows more easily. The most important thing that you should do in this moment is to feel content. Next, what is the most important thing? To be content. Therefore, the priority, and what is essential, is that whatever happens in the moment, the most important thing is to be content. So, tell your mind - Oh, mind, be quiet and don't think so much. Oh, mind, kindly trust that everything is and will be fine. Give your mind the basic instructions and the key thoughts with which to be content. Don't let your own mind create the thoughts that trap you. It is we ourselves who create our emotional cages.

The one who is free from bondage is the one who can be a support for others.

Projection:Sometimes I find myself not being able to be of help or unable to provide support to others as much as I would like to. This is because of the weaknesses working within me which make me look for support from others, thereby making me unavailable for others.

Solution: I need to work at checking and removing my own weaknesses. When I recognise and work at removing my weaknesses, I'll become a source of strength and support for others. I'll not look for support from others but will be able to allow people to rely on me.

At Peace With Time - The Key To Relaxed Living (Part 1)

To live in freedom you have to live at peace (harmony) with time; live the dimension of time as a creator of time and not a slave of time; live without being either a prisoner or victim of time. To live at peace with time is to live in harmony with nature, beginning with your inner nature. When you plant a sapling today, you cannot accelerate the process so that the next day you have a tree. When it is summer, you cannot make the earth revolve around the sun quicker or slower for winter to arrive before or later. Everything has its rhythm in nature. We have distanced ourselves from the natural rhythm and our accelerated mind exercises pressure, creates stress and causes anxiety. We plan the future, we are stuck in the past and the present escapes us.

Many worries have to do with how we live time: the past, the present and the future. Worrying about what might happen (future), when the moment has not yet come for it to happen, takes away from us the necessary energy to deal with it when it finally arrives. Living in memories drains our energy; the past already happened and no longer exists, except in our memory. We feed memories, not realizing that emerging the memory in our mind distracts us from the present and weakens us. It is like being a plug that connects to a socket with no current passing through. We lose our energy. We want to relive an experience that already happened, and in the end we feel disappointed, feeling a mental and emotional waste.

Message for the day 27-04-2017
-----------------------------------------

To have focus on the self is to become praise-worthy.

Projection:I normally try to do things for others - to seek their recognition or appreciation. So I am busy trying to prove myself to others as being special and different. I then am not able to appreciate my own inner qualities.

Solution: Instead of trying to prove things to others and trying to get their appreciation (which I don't always get anyway), I need to focus on myself. I need to make my actions such that I am proud of myself. This will automatically bring speciality in my actions and I become praise-worthy.

The Invisible Support System Of Life (Part 3)

The most important and primary influence on our relationships and making them full of love and happiness is of our own mental state. Very often, we talk very positively with people or act very sweetly with people but our mind is full of emotions like jealousy, revenge, hatred and even doubt, suspicion and insecurity. This can harm our relationships immensely and make them internally weak. Sometimes the effects of these hidden emotions don’t show up very soon but they keep harming the relationships internally, without us realizing it. So, a mind which is always light and transmitting the energy of sweetness as a form of love, contentment as a form of joy and calmness as a form of peace, gets the same energy back in all its relationships. This makes relationships full of success and free of obstacles that arise primarily from different personalities and different view-points.

Lastly, all of us live our life in this world and we play different roles. One person will play different roles of father, son, husband, brother, engineer etc. in one’s life and all these roles require different qualities and powers as well as skills and attitudes. The more the mind is calm and stable and an embodiment of the three primary virtues of peace, love and joy, the more it is focused and positive. As a result, it can not only choose the right qualities for every role but also implement them in action. Also, the mind saves a lot of its energy and can remain powerful in every situation when it is charged with positive thoughts full of these three virtues. The more powerful the mind is, the more it can take right decisions and discriminate between right and wrong easily, which is the primary key to success. So, roles benefit immensely, under the influence of the mind.

Message for the day 26-04-2017
-----------------------------------------

To be powerful means to be stable and unchanging inspite of the changing situations.

Projection:My moods and feelings normally change according to the changing times. If things are going on well, I have a positive state of mind, or else I am not able to maintain my own positivity. So I am actually dependent on the environment for my own state of mind and so I sometimes tend to feel powerless.

Solution: I need to remind myself that I am the master of my own thoughts. I definitely have no control over the situation, but I do have control over my own thoughts. The more I am able to maintain my own positivity, the more it is easy for me, with my positive state of mind, to change the situation to a positive direction.

The Invisible Support System Of Life (Part 2)

The mind is the basis of all existence. Nature, which is made up of five elements is eternal, but it undergoes change from good to bad, from positive to negative. The mind possesses the power to transform nature positively and also can negatively influence nature if it is negative. Every cell of the body is influenced by each and every thought that we create. It is said that our mind is constantly talking to each cell of our body. We are, at every moment, giving a positive or negative message, through our thoughts, to our body and all its systems which are made up of these billions of cells. The message is positive if our mind is full of peace, love and happiness and the message is negative if it’s the opposite. The mind possesses immense power to heal the body just by creating good thoughts and it can also increase the intensity of physical illnesses or create illnesses by creating negative and toxic thoughts.

Also, the more the mind always radiates peace, love and joy to everyone around, the more the different mediums in your life which are responsible to bring you physical wealth, become positive. E.g. a positive mind will attract positive circumstances and appropriate people, which will help you in earning more money. Many a times it’s about the right opportunities and they need to come to you at the right time, from the right people. Sometimes people call it luck, but it’s more a direct result of the energy we radiate to the universe and the more positive this energy is, the more the universe will give back to you in many positive ways. So, always think, speak and act positive and you will create positive circumstances in your life, of gaining financially.

Constant effort gives an experience of constant success.

Projection:I usually expect the same kind of results constantly. Although the effort that I put in is not so constant, I expect good results always. Yet I do not find it happening all the time. When I do not get the desired results, at that time I don't remember that it is my lack of effort which brought me poor results.

Solution: The only way to experience constant good results is to put in effort constantly. Whether the situations are bad, or even if I do not get any encouragement from others, I need to go on giving my best. Only with this will I be able to experience constant success.

The Invisible Support System Of Life (Part 1)

Our lives on a physical level, at every step, are based on an invisible spiritual support system. Can you imagine life without peace, love and happiness? These are our basic spiritual qualities of the soul. Once upon a time, a king of a little kingdom was asked, how fulfilled is your kingdom? He thought of the different aspects of life and how fulfilled they were, like health, wealth, relationships and roles. He was asked, how healthy is your kingdom? He thought of physical health and the magnitude of illnesses in the people of his kingdom and replied that all was not well. Then, he thought about how financially well-off his kingdom was and replied there was a little poverty existing in the kingdom. He also thought of relationships and roles, and realized that there was sorrow in relationships and some people were not satisfied with their roles and jobs they had. The king realized soon that to make his kingdom, healthy, wealthy and happy in all respects, was a difficult task but did not know where to start.

Just like the king and his kingdom, health, wealth, relationships and roles in the whole world are all physical aspects but to make each of them positive and free of obstacles, we need to look at the invisible spiritual support system of peace, love and happiness. The more all of us become full of these three qualities by making ourselves full of positivity and strength, the more the different aspects of life will be full of success. We know the mind’s health influences physical health and the mind’s fulfillment attracts physical wealth. Also, the mind’s goodness makes relationships beautiful and the mind’s focus and clarity makes our roles free from problems.

Sweet words are those that bring only benefit.

Projection:When I hear something interesting or unusual, I tend to repeat it to others. I repeat it to a lot of people who have no concern with it. I also add up a lot of things and make it an interesting story for others. But, in reality, these words bring no benefit for others.

Solution: Whatever words I speak, I need to check if they are bringing benefit to anyone. I need to speak only if there is likely to be any benefit. When I have attention on this aspect, others will experience sweetness through my words.

Bringing The Consciousness Back In Shape

If we try and find the root causes of all forms of stress, we would find that both lazy and wrong thinking lie behind various stressful emotions. No one right from our childhood to when we are grown-ups puts this into our heads that we are each responsible for our own thoughts and feelings. Instead we are taught that others are responsible for what we think and feel. No one teaches us how to think. We are taught what to think in terms of knowledge of the world, but not how to shape our own thoughts and feelings.

In spirituality the self gets the required training to create positive and powerful thoughts, thoughts:

1. which are connected to true spiritual knowledge of the self, 2. which are beneficial to your own spiritual well-being, 3. that inject positive energy in the form of happiness, love and enthusiasm to those around you, 4. which are absolutely necessary in the context in which you find yourself, 5. which use all your subtle energies in an economical way, 6. which ensure that the result of any response you may create does not result in stress.

When no one teaches us that any mental or emotional discomfort comes from within our own consciousness, we also do not ever realize that any negative state of being is unnatural and a sign that our consciousness is out of shape. The above thought training helps us to return our consciousness to its true, natural and original shape.

To constantly think of benefit is to be carefree.

Projection:When something goes wrong, it is very natural for me to think of the negative aspect. I experience negative feelings and as I continue think about it, I tend to feel more and more heavy in my mind. This does not let me be light either in my daily activities or in my interactions with others.

Solution: There is surely something positive in everything that happens. I need to make conscious effort to see positivity in everything that happens. This habit helps me be carefree even when something unexpected or unwanted happens. Even if I cannot see the positive aspect at that moment, I need to maintain the faith that whatever has happened is for the best.

Negative Reactions To Negative Actions

We very commonly react negatively with anger to another person’s anger filled words or actions, which we perceive to be unjustified or unreasonable. But this kind of action on our part, which we feel is our right and is a justified reaction or response, only adds to the negative energy already existing inside a particular situation, increasing the energy and making the situation even more complicated and difficult to resolve. Two negatives never make a positive, they make a higher negative, to which a very high positive has to be added (as compared to before) to bring the situation back to neutral or normal. Also, when you react, you are doing exactly what you believe the other person, the attacker, is doing – injuring someone on an emotional level, which is a form of subtle violence.

Lastly and very importantly, the other person’s negative and impulsive behavior, directed at you, portrays that at that particular moment he/she is experiencing an emptiness or void of wisdom, joy, peace, love and power, a void which he/she believes you have created and can only be re-filled by you. The anger filled action is a desire directed towards you, for this filling up. Hidden behind his/her anger is the feeling - Because of this person, I have lost my happiness at this particular moment and he/she should give it back to me immediately, which means that the other person is lacking the realization that no other person is ever responsible for your happiness. You are, always. Instead of switching on the awareness of this spiritual fact and emerging the value of forgiveness inside yourself, forgiveness because the other person is lacking this wisdom at that moment of time, you react, which makes you similar to him possessing a similar belief, something which you will definitely not appreciate too much. But, what happens is that the emotional storm inside you at that moment hides your ability to see how you are yourself injuring your spiritual heart. While you are in that emotional state, there is no way you can heal the wounds of the other’s heart i.e. correct the other person.

The art of listening enables me to become a support for those around me.

Projection:When I hear something negative about someone, I usually get influenced by it. Inspite of the fact that I may not have had any negative experience myself, I still tend to get influenced negatively. This brings about a change in my attitude and behaviour towards that person.

Solution: I need to learn the art of listening which enables me to respond in the right way. When someone describes something which involves the negativity of another person, instead of getting influenced by it, I need to understand his feelings and emotions at that time. When I do this I will be able to provide support to him without adding my own negativity to it.
