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.

The first step of courage is to consider oneself fortunate at every step.

Expression: The one who is courageous never has a doubt of being fortunate. Even if there are difficult situations and challenges, the faith of being fortunate never fades away. This faith enables such a person to recognise and use the available resources in a worthwhile way. Even during difficult situations, there is never a need to stop as faith gives courage to move on.

Experience: When I consider myself to be fortunate I never experience fear inspite of difficult situations. I am always happy with whatever is happening. Along with it I also have the enthusiasm to make effort to better the situation. I never worry but am able to enjoy each and every moment and make the best use of it.

Awakening The Positivity Within (Part 3)

In yesterday’s message, we have already shared examples of situations which are self-created. These situations are created by my own mind, sometimes triggered by an external situation and sometimes there is no external event responsible for the situation. Then there are other situations of the physical body, relationship based situations and situations related to my workplace and home. All these situations are partly external and partly internal i.e. there is an external event present which is a reality and cannot be overlooked. This is true except in many cases when the situation is perceived as a situation but that is just a perception of a person with a negative perception, but in reality the situation does not exist. In all other cases, the situation is present and that is a fact accepted by even a person with a positive perception. Depending on how we perceive the situation, how we react to it and what thoughts we create on seeing it, the situation becomes big or small in our own mind first. But there is another aspect – sometimes some life situations are threatening in nature and can disturb the most powerful of souls. Of course the intensity of the fear varies from person to person depending on the perception. A calm mind with a powerful intellect can face all these situations. Also, techniques like meditation which are taught by the Brahma Kumaris will help you in doing that.

Meditation is a process of thought training - just like a cricketer will practice very carefully how he will play each ball that he faces to achieve the desired result of a run or runs scored. In the same way, I learn how to give each thought of mine value and create only positive thoughts for those few minutes of meditation. These positive thoughts are based on spiritual knowledge and are thoughts about the spiritual self and the Supreme Being. These positive thoughts are created very slowly, step by step and carefully. This meditation practice of about a few minutes everyday is our training for actual negative situations. Then, due to this practice, we remain calm and create only positive thoughts and keep the negative thoughts away which cause disturbances in our mind.

To have love for God means to have love for all.

Expression: When there is love for God, there will be automatically love for all human beings, the children of the One God. There will be recognition of the speciality of all who come into contact and so words and actions will be beneficial both for one self and others. There will not be love for only some or love only sometimes.

Experience: When I am connected with the seed, God, I naturally find myself becoming an instrument for God’s love reaching out and touching the lives of others. I will not have love only for a few people, but will have equal love for all. I will then be in a position to help others too, to get rid of their negativity.

Awakening The Positivity Within (Part 2)

Do you know that on an average we create a new thought every 2 seconds or even less that? This speed increases very regularly when we panic and are in discomfort or under the negative influence of an external situation. We call it external because the me or I which is internal is not the creator of the situation. Even the physical body is external. Except for situations from my own negative personality characteristics, which are completely the creation of the internal me or I, all other situations are external. There are various examples of situations in the form of negative personality traits which are completely internal. E.g. on a particular day I feel gloomy or sad without any particular reason. On another day I experience thoughts of ego of my own nature or positive qualities or powers which are all internal. Sometimes I experience fear but there is no particular person or object or situation which I fear, it is just a passing phase. I am just frightened for no particular reason or on another occasion I feel I am unsuccessful although everything in my life is going fine. On another day I am worried about falling ill, although I am completely fit and nor have I met someone who is ill or listened to any news regarding poor health. So, my worry is completely self-created. These are examples of situations created completely by me.

Then, there are situations from my own personality characteristics which are triggered by outside situations. Such situations include something that I read, saw or heard which has caused a negative personality characteristic to emerge inside me. Examples of such situations are – my friend has been more successful in his or her academic career and seeing that causes thoughts of jealousy to emerge inside me. In this case, this is my self created situation but it was triggered by another person or external event. He or she did not cause me any harm and did not create the situation but I created the situation only because of my thinking. Another example of such a situation - I fear my boss at office solely because of his position being superior to me. He or she is a very nice person and is extremely polite with me and never tries to dominate me, but I feel dominated because of my thinking. Or another day, I heard a piece of news about how people are dying of heart attacks. This creates thoughts of fear inside me although I don’t suffer from any symptoms like uncontrolled high cholesterol or high blood pressure which could possibly lead to that.

The method to finish negativity is to fill with the power of positivity.

Expression: There are a lot of negative characteristics, which continue to work in one’s lives colouring words, actions and behaviour. Such negativity cannot be removed by reminding oneself of it again and again. Instead, a reminder and an excuse to use positivity, helps finish this negativity very naturally. It is when even the tiniest ray of light comes that the darkness begins to disappear.

Experience: When I start discovering and working with my inner positivity, I am able to easily win over my seemingly strong weaknesses. The lesser attention I give my weaknesses and the more attention I give my strengths, I am able to have an influence over my weaknesses and convert them into strengths. So there is a total experience of positivity, whatever the situation may be.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 04-12-2019

Awakening The Positivity Within (Part 1)

Positivity is our nature which we sometimes lose in our busy lifestyles. It is like the necklace which is around our neck, but we don’t realize that and we search for it all around. When we start the day, we need to fill our minds with positive points of information from a positive source. These points strengthen our mind and protect it from the negatives which surround us. Very often like the necklace, positivity is lost temporarily and is very easy to find, but the negative influence does not let me think of the ways of becoming positive and regaining it.

There was once a rich trader who always found a reason to become upset because of the smallest of reasons during the day. Every morning he would decide to remain positive during the day and would promise himself that he would not let his mind be influenced by any difficult problem he faced. But, as soon as he used to start his trade or business, because of the complicated nature of his work, he would fall prey to one or the other problem. These problems would be either from the work itself. Or problems would arise through the money he handled, or from his work associates or sometimes due to a problem created by his own mind. A mind that easily succumbs to difficulties can be compared to a home where a little problem in the form of a little mouse enters and brings disturbances in the whole house. When the house owner manages to get rid of the mouse and thinks everything is okay, a cat enters and adds her side of troubles and has the house owner go busy in trying to get it out of his premises. The cat is then followed by the dog’s entry and the whole day the house owner spends in this way. The moral of the story is - the one who remains disturbed attracts disturbances, which he keeps trying to send away. This process or mindset of trying to keep problems away and becoming over-involved in doing that, in turn attracts more problems. So, remain calm when the first problem of the day comes and don’t become over-involved or confused in trying to keep it away. This is the primary step to keeping problems away for the whole day. Calmness attracts a problem free environment around me and also keeps me content, powerful and peaceful.

The one who is victorious never withdraws till victory is attained.

Expression: When challenges, either in the form of situations or people, come one’s way, the one who aims for victory never withdraws. If there are excuses given to either withdraw or move away from the situation, there can never be victory. To be victorious means attempts are repeatedly made so that there is a constant and steady progress towards success.

Experience: Temporary failures, challenges or difficult situations don’t bother me, when I have the aim of being victorious. My only focus would be to attain victory and I would experience victory both in defeat and in victory. Also I will never consider myself to be alone as I continue to receive help. I would naturally experience the support and companionship of those around me.

A Journey Into The Inner Consciousness (Part 4)

Another important content of our own consciousness which is always present is I or the self. The self exists solely in our own consciousness and for others who know us, there will be different versions of it. The self is the most important piece of information as it has everything that has passed through consciousness, all the memories, actions, joy and pain. And above all, the goals that we have built, bit by bit, over the years. While our existence can be improved by outside events, such events must take their place in our consciousness, and be connected in positive ways to our self, before they can affect the quality of our life. Negative emotions like pain, fear, anxiety, or envy are the forces that can affect our consciousness negatively and bring them into disorder. Prolonged experiences of this kind can weaken the soul to the point that it is no longer able to invest attention and pursue its goals. So, it’s important to check that every piece of information that we process has what kind of influence on the soul. Does it threaten our goals, does it support them or is it neutral?

In order to create order in our consciousness and create it positively, the information that comes into our awareness should be in synch with our goals. Then there will be no worry or self-doubt. We will always get positive feedback from the self about whatever we choose to do in life, which will in turn strengthen the self and there will be more focus to manage the outer and the inner environment more effectively. In this state of self-integration, one feels more together than before, not only internally, but also with respect to other people and to the universe at large. Meditation helps in building attention in such a way that we learn to find ways that integrate our thoughts and emotions more consciously and more constructively. By doing that we can navigate different situations more skillfully, and also be able to create positive impact on life’s situations and grow in life successfully.

To be happy is to let go through the mind and not just through words.

Expression: Things do not always happen as expected. At such times, the one who is able to let go of expectations from the situation is able to forget it. Such a person will not speak about the situation again and again and describe it to everyone. Nor will there be the need to say, “I let go”. Once the situation is accepted as it is, there will not be even a single thought of it.

Experience: When I accept things as they are, I will be able to learn and be richer with every new experience. I will not be mentally troubled by what happened, but will be able to maintain my own inner happiness. I will thus be able to keep my mind clear for whatever is coming up in the future. So I will find freedom from waste and constant progress with the resources that I have.

A Journey Into The Inner Consciousness (Part 3)

Our consciousness is open and vulnerable enough to contain something as joyful as the fragrance of a rose to something as tragic as a war story. Hence, it becomes important to keep the information that we have in our minds to be consciously ordered. Our intentions can help act as a magnet here, moving our attention away from negative thoughts and emotions. Therefore, the information that we allow into our consciousness becomes extremely important. It is, in fact, what determines the content and quality of our lives.

Attention is also an important aspect towards building a positive state of consciousness. Information enters our consciousness either because we intend to give attention to it, or as a result of a sheer personal or socially developed habit.
For example, when we are driving down the highway, we fail to notice so many cars. But sometimes we notice a particular vehicle, perhaps because it’s moving directions unsteadily between lanes. This image enters the focus of our consciousness. Once we have been able to identify the situation on the basis of our own experience, we can then evaluate if this is something to worry about. If the answer is yes, we then decide on the appropriate action, which could be speeding up or slowing down, changing lanes or stopping. Therefore, attention is very important to recover the right references from memory, to assess the situation and then to choose the right thing to do. If we are in control of our consciousness, we will focus attention only where it is required and not get affected by distractions. This selective approach can help us in enjoying the normal course of our daily life. At this point, we will only radiate a pure glow of energy. And despite past difficulties and the intensity of our present lives, we will relish thoroughly every minute of it. Hence attention can be used in many ways, ways that can make life either rich or miserable.

True love for others enables them to be free from their weaknesses.

Expression: The sign of good wishes is that the negativity is not described to anyone else. When there is true love for the other person and there is a desire to see them improve, their negativity is not repeated again and again to oneself or to others. There is also genuine love and concern revealed in the words and so it helps the other person recognise his own specialities and he is encouraged to use them for his own benefit.

Experience: My desire for perfection enables me to become a source of support and encouragement for the other person, when I am able to see their strengths and relate to these strengths and specialities. Under no circumstance do I give others an experience of negativity or discouragement. I also get the love and good wishes from others as a return for what I have given.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 01-12-2019

--------------------------------------
Soul Sustenance 01-12-2019
--------------------------------------

A Journey Into The Inner Consciousness (Part 2)

Consciousness, helps in presenting information, about what is happening outside and inside our being, in such a way, that it can be evaluated and acted upon with responsibility. In this sense, it helps in filtering sensations, feelings, perceptions, and ideas and helps us to establish priorities among different types of information that we are exposed to. It can help us to deliberately weigh what the senses tell us about a particular situation or person, and respond accordingly. It can also help us in creating new and positive thoughts that did not exist before. For example, we can create dreams, write beautiful poems and build new technologies. The contents of our consciousness can play a key role in making us either happy or sorrowful, regardless of what is actually happening on the outside. Through the force of our personalities, we can transform difficult situations into challenges that have to be overcome. The virtue of perseverance through a positive consciousness, despite setbacks and obstacles, is therefore the most important trait, not just for succeeding in life, but also for enjoying it as well.

Consciousness is like a mirror. Everything that we feel, smell, hear or remember is potentially a candidate for entering our consciousness. The experiences, however, that do finally enter our inner being, are actually very few. It is our choice to reflect on them selectively; choosing in the process, only positive thoughts, to shape peaceful situations. This gift of reflection, a gift of our own consciousness, is what we call our life- the completeness of all we have heard, seen, felt, suffered and hoped in every life.

Message for the day 01-12-2019
-----------------------------------------

To have love for God means to be protected from weaknesses.

Expression: To have love for God means to have love for the perfection that is present within each and every individual, which means to be able to recognise and relate to everyone’s specialities. When this is done, automatically one remains free from one’s own weaknesses and fears and also from looking at the imperfections in others.

Experience: God’s love frees me from all worries and concerns. There will be that close connection with God that will enable me to feel light and easy as God takes care of all my worries and troubles. The faith that God is with me frees me from negativity and so I also find my faith making me an instrument to help others to be free from negativity. I am able to give hope and courage to others too.
