Making The Earth Beautiful And Pure

Spiritual Message On Earth Day - April 22nd


The Earth is a sacred space given to us by nature to stay on and make beautiful at every step. We radiate the energy from our inner consciousness every second to this planet, on which life exists in its fullest beauty. The higher the quality of our thoughts and feelings, the more we contribute in donating positivity and purity to the Earth. Let us create a few affirmations and remember them again and again everyday for achieving this purpose -

1. I am a pure soul with a beautiful mind and heart ... I think nice and positive for myself and for everyone and everything around me ... My vibrations radiate to every element of nature, every life form and all plants and vegetation ... They all become filled with peace, love and happiness ...

2. I am a powerful soul filled with all spiritual powers ... I radiate strength to everything on Earth and revive its original richness ... Every flower blossoms, every animal feels fulfilled, all mountains and oceans overflow with abundance, every soil particle creates natural beauty ...

3. I connect with God, the spiritual seed of the World Tree ... He fills me with all His specialties ... I radiate all these specialties through my eyes to everything I see on Earth today ... I smile at the Earth and thank it ... The Earth smiles back at me and thanks me ...

4. I take every step on Earth today with a positive consciousness of care and concern ... My spiritual energy flows to Earth from my feet and feeds the Earth with spiritual sustenance and blessings ... The Earth revives again to become as clean, pure and beautiful as it was in the beginning ...

The best way to get respect is to give respect to the self.

Projection: There is always an expectation of getting respect from those around. The one who is totally dependent on others for their own sense of well-being tends to react to situations, even if they are very insignificant ones. On the other hand, the one who is able to give respect to the self gives respect to others too and so gets respect himself.

Solution: When I am able to see my own specialities I am able to have respect for myself. Then I am not dependent on external sources for my inner state of mind. I remain free from all external influences, and am able to become a source of influence for those around me. I constantly enrich my own internal state with each thing that happens.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 21-04-2021

Soul Sustenance 21-04-2021
--------------------------------------

Transform Knowledge Into Wisdom

We all know someone who has high knowledge but doesn’t come across as wise. Knowledge is a bundle of data or information stored in the mind. Our intellect then goes through the knowledge base, uses only the useful information, to apply it wisely in every situation. Knowledge is about accumulating facts and information, while wisdom is about using judgment in applying that knowledge in life’s situations. This means knowledge is a gift that comes to us with a big responsibility – of churning on it, applying it in life and converting into wisdom. Wisdom shows us how to think and how to live right.

1. Meditate every morning for 15 minutes and study spiritual knowledge every morning for 15 minutes, to fill the mind with God's knowledge. Thereafter, your mind thinks right and perceives every situation clearly. Your choices and decisions will be based on logic and reasoning.

2. Discriminate what is right or wrong, based on your inner wisdom. Don’t use acquired information, people’s opinions or belief systems created by society. They may or may not be right for you. Ask the question, silence your mind and wait for your intellect to give you answers.

3. The process of seeking and obtaining wisdom is a life-long effort. The more you gain it, the deeper your inner qualities of humility, honesty, love, compassion, truth and courage become. These help you stand by your principles and stand for what is right at all times.

4. When you read or listen to deep messages on media or social media, don’t just be in awe of them. Ask yourself - How is it relevant to me? and apply it in your situations. Imbibing knowledge makes it your own wisdom, your truth and a part of your personality.

Message for the day 21-04-2021
-----------------------------------------

Where there is contentment, problems finish.

Projection: Contentment enables one to have a positive outlook towards life. So the one who is content always works towards solutions, as he is never disturbed with situations, but is always relaxed. This automatically brings the ability to contribute to others and give them the support to bring progress within them. Such a person works for his own self-progress too.

Solution: When I am content with everything that is happening, I am able to be light in all situations. So even in the biggest difficulty, I am never caught up with the problem, but am always thinking of the solution. My mind is busy with finding the solution, so internally I remain unaffected with the problem.

Emotional Detoxification (Part 4)

Our first responsibility is our own physical, emotional and spiritual wellness. So just as we take care of the body, let us also take care of nurturing the mind. In the last few messages, we explored that we are what we read, watch and listen. We also evaluated how to avoid taking in negative information from people taking to us about someone we can do nothing about. Let us now see what options we have, to tackle another similar situation - a person wants to share what someone else says about us.

Let us now see what options we have, to tackle another similar situation - a person wants to share what someone else says about us.

Option 1: Let us listen to the opinion. If there is something we can do about it, we must by all means do it. Else ignore it completely and not think about it and carry it like a baggage. Let go.

Option 2: Like it happens many times, it may just be an opinion that is sized up and colored by many people based on their sanskar. So the version that reached us can be drastically different from the original. Again, let go. If needed we can talk directly to the person whose opinion we have received. We do this only if there are issues which need to be resolved.

Option 3: We can politely refuse to hear the information. Lets make it clear to the one sharing it with us - Please share what others are saying about me, only if you feel there is something I need to do about it.

By choosing any of the above options, we increase our will power. We will also begin to take only healthy information. Such situations test us. By facing them well, our wrong sanskars and negativity finish. Let us remember that if we consciously refuse consuming negative information twice or thrice, people around us will stop bringing up such matters to us.

The most significant payoff is that the soul gets strengthened. When the soul is strengthened, all our weaknesses are removed. We know that we cannot work on individual weaknesses like finishing anger, finishing fear and so on. But when the soul becomes powerful, all weaknesses ago away. It is comparable to our physical health - if our immunity is high, we don't have to fight individual illnesses like cold or fever, our immune system prevents them all.

Message for the day 20-04-2021
-----------------------------------------

Introversion brings out the positivity within.

Projection: Every human being has an innate positive nature because of the inherent qualities of love, peace, happiness etc. that are within. Introversion, the practice of looking within, enables one to be in constant touch with oneself and one's true nature. It helps express these qualities in everything that is done. Because of having practiced for a long time with them, these qualities emerge very naturally at the time of need.

Solution: The practice of being introverted helps me in experiencing those qualities within me, which otherwise remain hidden during difficult situations. Thus it makes me have true self-respect and enables me to finish my ego. It also gives me the power to recognise and accept my mistakes, thus giving me the courage to work on them successfully.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 19-04-2021

Soul Sustenance 19-04-2021
--------------------------------------

Emotional Detoxification (Part 3)

We saw the impact of listening to people who talk to us about things we can do nothing about, and decided that we stop listening to them. To do this, most of us tend to tell the other person Let us not waste our time. Actually we must say Let us conserve our energy. We may all have time on our side but we are already weak emotionally. Indulging in waste conversations depletes us further.

Below options help us to stay away from negative emotional diet. Using any of them will be beneficial to us, to the person talking to us, and to the one being talked about.

Option 1: Have the power and ability to decline politely but assertively that we do not want to listen about anyone else's issues, sanskars or behavior. We need to handle the situation exactly the way we consciously watch our physical diet - we refuse certain eatables, regardless of how tempting they are, or how lovingly they are offered. Let us extend this discipline here by plainly refusing poor emotional diet.

Option 2: Progress the conversation from being problem-oriented to solution-oriented. Shift the focus on how the person talking to us should handle the situation, so that issues he has with the other person are resolved. We are then discussing about the sanskar of the person talking to us and not about the sanskar of the person who is not present.

Option 3: Shift perspective of the person talking to us. We can help them look at all the positives in the person they are talking about. When complaining about someone, people fail to acknowledge the good qualities of the person they complain about.

Option 4: Let us not be passive listeners, quietly nodding at everything being said. It amounts to our endorsement of the views. Too often, we hear out someone in the name of courtesy, obligation, or fear that our refusal to listen will hurt our relationship. Just as we do not feel bad when refusing to eat anything unhealthy for the body, we should refuse anything unhealthy for our mind. Its good for us and them.

To recognise the uniqueness of my own personality is to be free from negative influence.

Projection: The one who is aware of one's own uniqueness is able to create a strong influence on others of his own personality. So, such a person is not negatively influenced by anyone's personality traits. Even when there is a person with a very strong personality, he is still able to be free from negative influence.

Solution: When I am able to recognise and use the specialities that are within me, I am able to remain powerful within. In all circumstances and with all people I experience this innate power. Because I am constantly in touch with my own specialities, I am able to be light and happy.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 18-04-2021

--------------------------------------
Soul Sustenance 18-04-2021
--------------------------------------

Emotional Detoxification (Part 2)

In yesterday’s message, we saw how to avoid consuming negative emotional diet from the print, electronic and social media. We also came up with simple steps for our emotional detoxification.

Let us now become aware of another very common and critical source of negative information. It comes from people around us - where we live, our extended family, friends, acquaintances or colleagues. What they often talk to us is about things we can do nothing about - like problems, issues, sanskars or behaviors of other people. But we lend attentive ears. Listening to such information means consuming a harmful emotional diet. Whatever we listen to, becomes our perspective not only about a person we are listening about, but it also now becomes a part of our thought process.

When someone gives an opinion about a person, it is not necessarily the truth. Such people are only sharing their perspective based on their sanskars. Don't we see what happens in relationships or at workplace - how someone with a sanskar of criticism, someone with a sanskar of jealousy, someone with a sanskar of worry talks about other people?

The first layer of wrong emotional diet fed to us is about the weakness of the person being talked about. Second layer is of the weakness of the person talking to us. We add the third layer of our own weakness by listening to it. So we end up consuming three layers of 'fattening emotional diet'. It is only a fluff baggage we will carry. If we want to be light and happy, we need to protect ourselves from such diet.

(To be continued tomorrow …)

To be ever ready means to guarantee success.

Projection: The ones who are ever ready are active and so when a task comes up, they quickly understand it and attain success. They do not waste time and energy thinking too much about it. They recognize the importance of the task and involve fully in it and attain success.

Solution: When I am ever ready I am able to be easy. Because I am easy, all tasks seem easy for me and effort put in for the success of the task also becomes easy. So I don’t have to do a lot of effort but give my best. Thus I experience success every moment in all situations.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 17-04-2021

--------------------------------------
Soul Sustenance 17-04-2021
--------------------------------------

Emotional Detoxification (Part 1)

Let us choose a healthy emotional diet by incorporating 5 simple steps in our lifestyle –

1. Avoid reading newspaper, watching news channels or even TV shows that are very emotionally stimulating, as the first thing in the morning. Instead, let us spend at least 20 minutes to read or listen to pure and empowering messages. To beat time constraints, we may even combine it with our morning routine of walk, exercise, while cooking or commuting to work. This way we begin our day with a healthy breakfast for the mind.

2. Choose one positive point from what you read in the morning and create an affirmation. Customize the thoughts to suit our personal, current life situations. Let us remember that affirmations should aim at what we already have or what we want in reality. After every hour, pause for a minute and repeat them along with visualizing the thoughts.

3. Let us delete negative messages on WhatsApp even without reading, ignore such messages on Facebook or Twitter. Let us not read critical opinions about anyone, a joke showing someone in poor light, a message that shows bias for a person, religion, place, political views and so on. Once we read the message, we have consumed it. It influences our thoughts not only about that particular issue, but even otherwise we tend to create thoughts of criticism, anger and pain. We are what we read, watch and listen.

4. Avoid watching news, daily soaps or reading the newspaper at bedtime. Instead, set aside 10 minutes before going to sleep to absorb positive information. This ends our day well, calms the mind so we enjoy a good sleep. It also ensures our last thoughts for the day are not scattered around any negativity.

5. Let us always carry a positive book or messages and talks on our phone. Any moment we feel disturbed or low, immediately read or listen. Even a 5-minute intake of elevated information stops the series of negative thoughts. The message may give us a solution to our problem. The instant healthy diet strengthens the soul and gives us the power to create a positive response. This is our emotional first aid kit.

Greatness lies in humility.

Projection: The one who is humble is always willing to learn - from others and situations. So whatever happens a humble person never reacts to the situations, but acts positively whilst being in a stage of self-respect. So there is greatness visible in the one who is humble.

Solution: Humility brings an experience of being full and complete. So naturally I am available for service, and have always the thought of bringing benefit to as many as possible. Humility also gives an experience of being a master, because no situation or person binds me, but I am able to experience freedom.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 16-04-2021

--------------------------------------
Soul Sustenance 16-04-2021
--------------------------------------

Do You Believe In God? Do You Feel His Presence?

God is our spiritual parent and the Highest spiritual energy in the Universe. Over many centuries, God has been loved and respected by millions of people all over the world. Yet, some people say that God is a man-made creation and his imagination. Have you ever wondered that you are a spiritual energy and so is everyone in the world? We undergo changes in our personality, depending on our actions. Are we aware that we need to have a spiritual parent who can correct us, when we go wrong and make our personality positive and pure again? This is God's role in the Universe, to correct us and make us beautiful again. If He did not exist, we would keep falling down in qualities and powers. So isn't it wrong to question His presence? He is eternal and so are we and so is our relationship with Him.

Some people feel that human beings created the concept of God so that they would have someone to fear and as a result they would not perform any negative actions. But God is a merciful parent, not someone to fear. Some people said that the creation of the world is a completely physical process and God has no role to play in it. On the other hand, some others gave the view that God created the world and human beings. Some people who find the second point of view difficult to believe, shifted to the first point of view. According to spiritual wisdom shared by God, both these ideologies are incorrect. God has revealed that three entities are eternal in the Universe - God, souls and nature and all three of them have never been created and will never be destroyed. Out of these three, souls and nature undergo change in their qualities from positive to negative and negative to positive and God is always constant in qualities and transforms souls and nature from negative to positive, whenever they become negative in the process of time. This is a process of spiritual creation or spiritual rejuvenation or making the old new again by God. This is a drama of life which we need to understand deeply and feel God's presence and transform ourselves by connecting with Him, instead of questioning His existence.

To be a self-sovereign is to be in control.

Projection: The one who is a self-sovereign never finds difficulty in being in control. He doesn't have to go out of control and then bring himself back in control. The moment the order is given to the self, every thought, word and action is immediately in order.

Solution: To be a self-sovereign means to be aware of my own specialities and work with them. When I am a self-sovereign I experience myself to be free. This is because nothing binds me but I am able to win over my weaknesses too. Thus I find myself to be in total happiness in all situations.
