Viewing Situations Positively (Part 3)

Feelings of helplessness when faced with difficult situations are something that many people in the world experience. It’s as if life comes to a standstill and you don’t know where to look for help and whom to call out to. Is it so difficult to face situations? Doesn’t God know what we are going through and can’t he be made a part of the situation to cross it. Some say God is a spectator to our problems and he is too far away to hear our voice but is it so? God waits for His help to be taken because you are His spiritual child and you have a right to take His help. Also, God is not very happy if we say that He is insensitive to our troubles. Some people even go the extent of sometimes incorrectly saying that all the happiness and the sorrow in our lives is given by God, which is not true. But, at the same time to get us out of the sorrow is something that even God is always eager to do, but we need to take His help by remaining strong and stable in the negative situation. It is said that one step of courage taken by us brings thousand steps of help from God. God is our Father and taking His help is the first thing that should come in our mind when we are in trouble and not the last as sometimes it happens. We get so over-involved in situations and in thinking how to solve it that we forget that there is someone sitting out there who can be called by the power of thought and whose help can be taken. We can do this as we would do with our physical father, if we needed his help.

Some people assume that God should help on His own, but there are two conditions for receiving His help – one is courage and the other is remembering Him.
Remembering him is a way of giving Him respect, who is the Highest of Highest. Remember God, who is the most humble being that exists. But He will help us when we remember Him much more than if we are disconnected from Him. Taking His help makes it easy for you to face the situation at hand and hence view situations positively.

You will be truly successful when you are loving and detached with the ones you come into contact with.

Checking:With all the people that you come into contact with throughout the day, check if you are able to have a balance between being loving and detached. Detachment doesn’t mean to stay away from people, but to be with them and yet be detached.

Practice: Make the practice of seeing only specialities, your own and that of others. This will enable you to maintain your self-respect and you will be able to find yourself both loving and detached.

Viewing Situations Positively (Part 2)

Situations arise in our lives regularly and even suddenly at times. At those times we are not prepared for them and even the best of people who are generally very positive will at times become disturbed when they look at them. There are people who have had heart attacks or have died of shock when someone close to them died or when suddenly their business went down or when their favorite sports team lost a game or when they were told about a serious illness which they were suffering from. So, life can be demanding at times because we are not prepared for situations and at the same time we are not mentally strong enough to face them. So this makes it difficult for us to adjust to the sudden changes in our life and also we are generally attached to a perfect life in which no difficult situations exist. There are people who fear situations not so much because of the actual situation itself but more because of the fact that the situation exists in their life. This is called attachment to a particular lifestyle which we are used to, where everything goes smoothly and a little change in that can disturb us mentally.

Bringing spirituality in our lives is an important way of making our lives firstly free for the fear of situations existing. At the same time becoming aware of why situations arise in our lives and accept them easily. Lastly give a thought to what positive steps we can take on a physical and non-physical level i.e. at the level of our words and actions which are physical and at the level of our thoughts which are non-physical to reduce difficult situations in our lives. Also, the power to face situations fearlessly increases inside us when we have the hand of God to hold on to. Also, it increases when we have a very deep relationship with Him based on a spiritual understanding of who He is actually and how we can connect with Him. The connection becomes easy by experiencing ourselves as a soul or a being of spiritual light which is different from the physical costume we wear which we commonly call the human body.

Set your mind on the seat of stability and you will never become upset.

Checking:In all that you do throughout the day, check if you are able to stabilise your mind wherever and in whatever thought you want at the right moment. If you are not able to you will find yourself getting upset.

Practice: Each morning create a positive thought for yourself. For example, tell yourself “I am the one who is in control of my mind and I can set it the way I want to.” Now practice focusing on this one thought. Stabilise in this thought for sometime.

Viewing Situations Positively (Part 1)

If you look at the world around you and judge people based on how they respond to different situations, you will realize and know that there are some people who will look at situations from a negative view point very easily. A view point literally means – viewing from a point a particular scene in your life. Obviously the point of view as we say is different for each person i.e. the point from where someone views a particular scene is different for each person. It’s like a painting on a wall. I can see the same painting by standing at different points and I will see the same painting differently. That is what we mean by perception or the angle of viewing or the point of view. Sometimes one painting of life or scene in life will be seen by ten different people from ten different positions of the mind and they will see it differently or in other words they will react differently. And because we look from different viewpoints or have different perceptions, life for some is like a joyride and for some it can be a roller coaster ride i.e. a ride with ups and downs where you are shaken up and down very often. In other words you become unstable emotionally.

When looking at situations, choose the most positive mind position to look at them from. That is the secret key to having a mind space which you own, in which the experience of virtues like happiness, contentment and power exist and express themselves freely. How to choose the best mental position to look at a scene of life or in other words how to have the most positive perception for a situation? This depends on your personality, which the good thing is, can be changed. Meditation is the most beautiful technique of connecting yourself internally using the power of visualization to the sweet personality of God and absorbing His virtues. This brings the virtues inside your mind space in the form of good quality thoughts and on the basis of that creating positive perceptions or positive view points when looking at situations.

True help is to give support in such a way that people become independent.

Checking:Think of those people you are giving some kind of help or support. Check if you are helping in such a way to make them independent or is your help making them dependent on you.

Practice: Remind yourself that your aim in helping is to make people independent and strong in such a way that they are able to support others too. Remind yourself that your help should never make people weak.

Bringing Your Dreams Alive

Each one of us has dreams that we nourish right through our lives. Some are short-term dreams and some long term ones. Dreams keep changing as we progress through different phases of our life. Some are achieved, some are not. Some of us possess the ability to realize our dreams more than the rest. The most important and influential factor in this process is how much we believe in our dream and believe that it will be realized. Some of the factors that hamper this belief are:

- The influence of the past - the memories of our past failures, which sow seeds of doubt in our mind; as well as successes, which keep us in an illusionary consciousness and distance us from the present moment and our present actions. Also, sometimes we associate present temporary failures or ups and downs which may come in our way, with failures of the past.
- Lack of inner strength or power, when faced with obstacles in your path. Tendency to get dejected very easily and creating weak thoughts like we do not deserve it or we are not capable of it or are we not lucky enough or it is not in our destiny or maybe it is our negative past actions which are influencing our dream realization process adversely, etc.
- The opinions or comments of people surrounding you who sometimes, are not in tune with your consciousness and are not able to empathize with your purpose. Their comments easily de-focus you from your purpose.
- Lack of ability to mould or adjust during the dream realization journey. Any journey is always full of twists, turns and sudden changes. A rigid state of mind, which is not able to change its tactics as required, may make the path seem more difficult than it actually is.

- It is very good to dream but excessive attachment to the dream also may make the journey towards the dream stressful and bring down your self-belief at times.

To be experienced means to be an inspiration to many.

Expression:Words heard can be forgotten, but that which is experienced remains as a deep impression that makes one move forward constantly. The positive experience acts as a stimulant so that others too take benefit from this experience. The actions of such a person are always beneficial.

Experience: When I have an experience from which I learn, I am able to leave a deep impression for further growth. I am constantly learning from every single thing that happens in my life and I am able to sustain it as a beautiful experience for my life. So this learning becomes a powerful support for those who wish to change.

Destroying the Ravan Within (Part 2)

A Special Message On Dussehra

In the Bhagwat Gita, it is said that lust, anger and greed are gates to hell. Thus, the soul under the influence of body consciousness or Ravan divorced itself from Ram, as a result of which it opened the gates of hell for itself and experienced sorrow and pain. Ravan literally means one who makes you cry. Today every soul or Sita trapped in the chains of the five vices, which are the roots of all emotional sufferings, tensions and sorrows; cries out to Ram for liberation.

Ram is just one of the symbolic names of the non-physical Supreme Father of all souls who is eternally bodiless and stays in the soul world or Shantidham, free from the cycle of birth and rebirth and constantly peaceful, pure, blissful and loveful. The whole comparison, in fact, relates to the coming of the Supreme Soul at the end of Kaliyug onto the physical world to free all the Sitas from sorrow. According to his sacred promise, the Supreme Being comes at such an important time of human history when souls have become slaves to impure pleasures and desires. He transforms and re-moulds spiritually weakened souls and purifies their intellects by pure spiritual knowledge to them. He teaches them simple Rajyoga meditation (Rajyoga can be broken up into Raja + yoga which means king of unions) by which the souls can connect their minds and intellects to him and spiritually re-empower themselves. The word Dussehra comes from the word Dasa-Hara, Dasa meaning Ten and Hara meaning destroy. Only when we kill the ten-headed demon of Ravan in our nature, with the arrow of spiritual knowledge and burn his huge effigy with the divine fire of intense meditation or yoga with the Supreme, can we truly celebrate Dussehra and experience permanent joy.

The foundation of a beautiful life is positive thoughts.

Expression:The one who is constantly thinking positive is able to keep his words positive too. His actions would surely be positive also and would be those that bring benefit to the self and others. So to have positive thoughts means to make a beautiful contribution in making one’s own life worthwhile.

Experience: When I continue to have positive thoughts, I create a foundation for a beautiful life. I am able to enjoy the beauty of whatever situations come up in my life. I am able to strengthen this foundation further because each positive thought multiplies as time passes by. So I am able to create a fertile ground for getting the best fruit from life.

Destroying the Ravan Within (Part 1)

A Special Message On Dussehra

Many interesting and famous mythological stories of Dussehra or Vijayadashami, that celebrates the victory of righteousness over evil, are present in the world. These stories are hidden in importance and are not completely understood.

According to the spiritual knowledge shared at the Brahma Kumaris, the soul originally was a sparkling star-like point of living energy, full of peace, purity and bliss; spiritually charged and staying in the soul world. This world is commonly called Shantidham or Muktidham, a world beyond this physical world of five elements. When this spiritually powerful soul first came onto the earth to play its fixed role on earth, its purity was naturally seen through the physical body, in the form of divine qualities like love, happiness and joy.

Slowly as it came down in the cycle of birth and death, it started falsely identifying itself with its physical body and forgot its eternal identity of that of a soul. It started getting attracted to the five senses and sense objects that it came across in its journey. The golden deer which had attracted Sita in the Ramayan is a symbolic representation of these attractions and the internal stage of soul-consciousness is shown in the form of the Lakshman Rekha which Sita had crossed. This led to her getting kidnapped by Ravan and getting distanced from Ram. The episode of kidnapping of Sita by Ravan refers to the kidnapping of the soul by the forces of Evil or the five vices namely lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego. It is believed that Ravan, also called Dashanan had ten heads. It is physically impossible for such a human being to exist. So these ten heads surely have a symbolical and deep spiritual importance, which we seem to have forgotten. The ten heads symbolize the five vices in man and five vices in the woman of today.

Love spreads positivity.

Expression:The one who is loving is not limited by circumstances and his love is not restricted only to certain people. On the other hand, it is revealed in each and every act thus colouring everything and every relationship with the beauty of that love. To be loving is to be constantly a giver. It also means to forgive others easily and help them to move forward.

Experience: When I am loving constantly, I am able to experience the joy of life. I am able to exchange the gifts of pure feelings and find my life enriched with them. I am able to enjoy the beauty of relationships without having to feel the bondage due to expectations. Each moment of my life is filled with beauty and joy.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 17-10-2018

Soul Sustenance 17-10-2018

The Thought-Destiny Cycle

The process by which we create our own destiny is quite easy to see in theory; however it requires some checking to see how it matches the reality of our practical lives. Here is the process in brief:

- As our intentions, so will be our thoughts.
- As our thoughts, so will be our feelings.
- As our feelings, so will be our attitudes.
- As our attitudes, so will be our actions.
- As our actions, so will be our habits.
- As our habits, so will be our personality.

As our personality in all our relationships on our journey through life, so will be our destiny. So watch your thoughts! Be aware of your intentions!

Our intentions are based on our beliefs about who we are, where we are and why we are here. If we believe we are the physical form, our belief will we be that we need to survive as long as possible. This leads to the intention to get what we think we need before others, which leads to competition, which leads to feelings of fear. Our destiny gets shaped accordingly. When you know you are the non-physical and immortal (which is neither created nor can be destroyed) energy, a soul, then survival is no longer an issue and your intention is one to include, connect and co-operate with and enlighten others. The service of others at a spiritual level becomes the highest intention in action. It is fully free from fear and can be seen as an act of love. This is why competition and authentic spirituality can never be found together.

Message for the day 17-10-2018
-----------------------------------------

To give regard to all is to win the love of all.

Expression:To give regard to someone who is older and more experienced is one thing, but it is also important to have regard to someone who is younger. When there is such regard, interaction with them would surely be positive. The words spoken would be encouraging and giving them support and never putting them down even when they make mistakes.

Experience: When I am able to give regard to everyone, I am able to win the love of all. I am not dependent on others’ love for giving them regard, but am able to appreciate them as they are. I am able to see their specialities and encourage them to use these specialities. This naturally wins the love of others, along with bringing improvement in their own life.
