Stop Running The Race … Enjoy The Present Moment (Part 3)

We should also free ourselves from the belief that it is only the future which counts the most. In this treadmill of achieving socially valid goals, we keep trying to win a prize that eventually dissolves in our own hands, before we even feel the slightest of happiness of having achieved it. We also fail to notice so many potentially fulfilling experiences of the present in this race. The most crucial step in freeing ourselves is the ability to find rewards in the events of each moment. If we learn to enjoy and find meaning in the ongoing stream of experience, the burden of stress for achieving something often falls down from one’s shoulders. Power returns when rewards are no longer externally connected. We learn to nourish the genuine rewards of life and stop running after the prize that is sometimes just out of reach.

Once we have defined our goals, the learnings gained from overcoming obstacles along the way, leave us feeling more skilled, unique and capable. In the process of getting these individual accomplishments, an attitude of collaboration and co-operation with others can add a sense of harmony and fulfillment in life. We learn to be more sensitive to life, when we cultivate a space for care and respect for other souls and their ideas and lives that are beyond the physical self. This human integration and flow makes the present more enjoyable and it adds self-confidence to us, which allows us to build skills and also make significant contributions to our family, friendships, workplace and society.

The power of good wishes enables disheartened ones to experience happiness.

Expression: The usual reaction to the negativity in another person is to behave negatively too, i.e., to express negative qualities. This continues although this does not bring about the desired change in the other person. On the other hand, when there is the ability to see the positive qualities in the other person and have good wishes based on that it becomes a source of power to bring about a change to positivity.

Experience: When I have the ability to give positive feelings and good wishes to the other person even when they are negative, they are able to get the power to change the negative to positive. I find that the change that I seek for in others is much more quicker and easier than if there is the emphasis just on negativity.

Stop Running The Race … Enjoy The Present Moment (Part 2)

Happiness and success are actually deeply interconnected. They both share a common aspect- they cannot be pursued. If we practice soul consciousness, the thought emerges that the feelings of having achieved both success and happiness should be a result of our personal dedication to something greater than the physical self. The situations we come across in this life, which are also due to our past actions, are often scripted differently than what we desire. The roots of human discontent lay in the fact that the situations often unfold themselves naturally, and they do not take human desires into consideration. They are random and different in contrast to what we want to establish through our goals. However, in such circumstances, this awareness is important that we do have a choice to create something beautiful out of such situations, which can help build the inner worlds of our minds, which is contentment in life, while embracing the joy of growing in every moment. It is, therefore, a choice to achieve happiness by achieving control over the contents of our own consciousness.

In the modern world - wealth, status and power have become important symbols of happiness. They can be genuine blessings and not irrelevant, but only if they help us feel joyful. It is important to understand how we can consciously create efforts towards attaining these goals, while also staying happy and content in the moment. Materialistic success is only one aspect of life. There are many other dimensions of life that can give us joy and satisfaction. This awareness can free us from becoming addicted to the attention and approval from others that often come along with being successful on a materialistic level. In order to overcome the stress of contemporary life, we first need to re-experience our original virtue of happiness. We can do this by defining what is really important to us and what isn’t. We can then find enjoyment and purpose in our actions, and learn to reward ourselves, irrespective of its social relevance and regardless of external circumstances.

Love and cooperation bring success in all tasks.

Expression: Love is reflected in the love that there is for the person and also for the task. When there is love for the person, there is the ability to give cooperation without any expectations or demands. And when there is love for the task there is the commitment for completing the task, whatever the obstacles that come up in the process of doing things.

Experience: When I am able to have love, I am able to receive hundred percent help and commitment from others too and so I am able to have the satisfaction of moving forward constantly. There is nothing difficult for me and I do everything with great ease. Not only is the task easy but also there is a spread of happiness and joy experienced by all who are involved in the task.

Stop Running The Race … Enjoy The Present Moment (Part 1)

Every soul seeks happiness. While happiness itself is searched for its own sake, every other goal - health, beauty, money or power, is valued, because we expect that it will make us happy. Today, we have made a lot of advancement in the eras of medical science and technology, but when it comes to attaining this blessed and beautiful state of happiness, not much has changed and we could arguably conclude that we have made no progress at all. We often end up feeling that instead of being filled with happiness, we have wasted our precious moments in anxiety and pressure to attain something, which would eventually take us to success, thereby experiencing and achieving happiness. The visualization of happiness, a very natural state of being to any soul, has become very difficult to experience in the world today, because it is dependent on physical attainments and achievements.

As children, we were thrilled and happy naturally. We could share our experiences of such joys in response to simple events like hearing a bird humming, or sharing lunch with a friend. As we become old, we become pressurized to achieve goals like success in education, family, business, and often lose awareness of the reality that it is our fundamental responsibility as a person to first become a joyous being. If we go against our own nature to be happy, we will never reach anywhere. Each of us has a picture, however vague, of what we would like to accomplish in this life. We aspire for different types of success. It could be money, health and social relationships. How close we get to attaining that goal becomes the measure for the quality of our own lives. If it remains out of reach, we become resentful. The problem arises when we become so obsessed with it, that we stop deriving joy from the present moment. When this happens, we give up our own chances of contentment.

To be a master means to use the right power at the right time.

Expression: To be a master means to be aware of the internal qualities that one has. Also it is the ability to use these qualities as and when required. That means to be able to give an order and put into use in a second whatever internal power or virtue that is required at that time. If there is an awareness of the positive quality, and not the ability to put it into use within a second, it would not be called total mastery.

Experience: When I am a master I am able to have an experience of having control over whatever is happening around me. Even if something comes up suddenly, I still am able to feel the control over the situation and make the best out of it. I neither feel helpless nor blame others for what is happening.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 13-10-2019

--------------------------------------
Soul Sustenance 13-10-2019
--------------------------------------

Overcoming The Fear Of Communication

When the fear of communicating effectively exists inside you e.g. when appearing for a work interview, it may be due to personal insecurity. You have to work on it in order to have more security, confidence and authoritativeness. Being secure and full of authority in the moment of communicating and expressing yourself requires practice and effort. Most importantly, to feel secure in such situations, when the person whom you are faced with is in a position of power, you have to value yourself. Self-value brings self-security and a feeling of fearlessness. When someone is normally asked to talk about what his/her personality is like or what is his/her basic character traits are, they normally speak about their weaknesses. Very rarely does one speak of his/her strengths or positive personality traits. Realizing your strengths requires introspection. Meditation, based on the complete spiritual knowledge about the self, is one of the simplest methods to do this. Once you realize your own strengths, you are able to value yourself immensely. If you value yourself, it does not matter so much to you whether another values you or not. However, if you aren't able to value yourself, then doubts exist: Let's see if this person values or respects me; perhaps this job is not for me; perhaps my communication skills are not very good. Then you need recognition and appreciation. Since you cannot give it to yourself (because you have not realized your strengths), you depend on others giving it to you.

You need to know that you are unique and that you are worth a great deal. If the other person does not value you it is their loss; they are losing something precious. If you are established in that self esteem of Who am I, a very elevated consciousness and that awareness – here comes a treasure whom you will be interviewing; your words and your body language will be sharp, secure and stable. Within you, you value yourself; and if you value yourself, it will be easier for people to value you. On the other hand, if you do not like and respect yourself, you will cause the same energy, which you radiate, to come back to you from others.

Real contentment spreads happiness to others too.

Expression: When one feels contentment but the others are not able to perceive that contenetment, it means that it is not true contentment. Real contentment is visible in such a way that others too are able to feel the happiness that is created. When there is real contentment, all thoughts, words and actions are filled with quality.

Experience: When I am content, others automatically recognise the contentment within me. They are able to take benefit from my state. Even in the most hopeless state, I find that I become a source of support for those around me. I am able to give hope to the hopeless and help them get back to a state of happiness.

Peace And Love - My Original Nature (Part 3)

Many of us sometimes use anger as a weapon in what we sometimes call controlling people and we forget that it is not possible to control people, but it is easy to influence them. Influencing people is always easier and that can take place with peace and love and keeping good wishes. Also, looking at people with positivity and having a vision for them that they are good helps to make them do what we may expect them to do. Also, being humble and kind-hearted will make people respect you and do what you desire or bring any change that you desire much more.

Always remember we are inherently peaceful and loveful souls and as we come in the cycle of birth and rebirth we lose these qualities and start becoming full of desires of different types. Expecting or desiring a certain type of behavior from someone else is the root cause of all forms of anger. Also, desiring a certain type of situation, as per our liking is another cause of anger. Both these desires, when not fulfilled, make us irritated or upset or even violent in some cases. On the other hand, accepting situations and people with ease is possible for those who are full internally, with different qualities and powers. These qualities and power come with the help of spiritual knowledge and following a path to bring the spiritual knowledge in your life. The more spiritually strong we become, the more we are able to remain above changes in our life which are not as per our liking. Also, we remain stable when sometimes people close to us are behaving in a way, which is different from what we think is right or preferred. Also fulfillment on an external level can sometimes make us egoistic. On the other hand internal fulfillment of different qualities makes us humble and very uncomplicated in our dealings, a behavior which satisfies people easily.

The one who is humble is always successful.

Expression: The one who is humble is free from desires and is in a state of appreciation and contentment of what he has. So he does not want to prove to himself that he is successful. He only enjoys the process of learning and progressing. He is never deterred by criticism and takes it in the right spirit.

Experience: Humility enables me to appreciate the effort put in by those around me. I would naturally be able to see the specialities in others and respect them for it. There would be no feeling of envy. So I would naturally be able to have the quality of contributing for the progress of others too.

Peace And Love - My Original Nature (Part 2)

For most of us, there are always different types of people we have to deal with, whether at our work or in our families. The challenge lies in interacting with everyone without getting angry. This is because our personalities or natures are different and our opinions also vary. Sometimes, two people are right in their own way, yet their views do not match in a particular situation. This leads to anger filled interactions. Also, when two people are right in their own way, but with different perceptions, it is ego that does not let peace and harmony be a part of that particular relationship. So, anger and ego are big enemies for good relationships in any sphere of life – personal as well as professional.

Also, when it comes to overcoming anger and ego, the first step is to look inwards and access the treasures of peace and love, which are inside us. They just need to be bought into practice by realizing one’s spiritual self, which is the soul. Realizing brings positive virtues of peace and love to become a part of our nature. These inner treasures are also increased by connecting the spiritual self with the Supreme Being or Supreme Soul or God. God is the non-physical Supreme Ocean of peace and love. This connection is called meditation. Also, in the entire day, practice seeing everyone as a soul, whose qualities are peace and love, even if anger and ego are more visible in them. This is because anger and ego are acquired sanskaras and peace and love are each and everyone’s original sanskaras. So, seeing each one’s original sanskaras, sends them the energy of those positive emotions. As a result, they get motivated to bring those sanskaras on the surface and use them instead of using anger and ego, which are negative sanskaras.

To spread the rays of happiness is to be optimistic.

Expression: The one who is optimistic is able to spread the rays of happiness all around. Never does he stop or move back with life’s challenges. On the other hand, he has the courage and determination to move on making the best out of the situation. Others too are encouraged seeing his faith.

Experience: When I am optimistic I am able to understand that there is something good that is hidden in everything that happens. I am able to enjoy seeing only this positive aspect, filling me with positivity. So my happiness spreads around and touches the lives of those around me.

Peace And Love - My Original Nature (Part 1)

Life for all of us is full of many different type of situations which at times cause emotions of anger and ego inside us. Both anger and ego negatively affect relationships. So all of us at times should make the silent effort of keeping them away from our life situations and remaining calm and peaceful. Many times with some of our family members or friends or even in some other unimportant interactions, we are tested by these two emotions. In other words, it is very easy to become angry in such situations. It is upto us to take care that we use our inner resources of peace, love and joy and use them to give others the same experience.

There is lots of research in the world in the present time how anger is harmful for our health. Illnesses like blood pressure, heart attacks, insomnia and back aches and other problems like digestive disorders are caused by angry outbursts. People indulge in such behavior very commonly in their families or elsewhere. Also, there are some viewpoints in the world that a little bit of anger is good and it gives an adrenaline rush. It is also seen that there are some people who believe that ego makes you powerful and helps you to become successful. Also some people feel that anger increases your efficiency because it helps work get done many times. But all of these are wrong beliefs and in fact the truth is that ego is weakness and instead of helping you get respect, you lose respect with it. Also instead of anger helping you get love and co-operation from people, it makes you lose it.

To donate virtues is the greatest donation.

Expression: To donate virtues means to express virtues through one’s own words and actions. There is some or the other value revealed through all words and actions. The ones who constantly have the aim of donating virtues naturally bring benefit to all they come into contact with. No one would go away empty handed from such people.

Experience: When I constantly have the aim of using my virtues I have the satisfaction of giving continuously under all circumstances. I also find my own treasures of virtues increasing and I find myself richer and better than what I was. Thus I experience constant progress in my life.
