10 Steps To A Positive Lifestyle (Part 3)

Let’s look at few more methods to remain constantly positive and powerful in every situation:

5. While performing actions throughout the day, ensure that you are always smiling and radiating lightness and love to everyone through your eyes, face as well as sweet words and actions.
6. After every hour, stop whatever you are doing and look inwards for 1-2 minutes. Check the flow and quality of your thoughts and bring them on track from negative and unnecessary to positive and constructive.
7. While talking and meeting others at home or in your office, remember constantly that everyone is a spiritual energy full of positivity and if you see any negativity, remember that it is not their actual nature, but just an artificial and temporary personality layer.
8. Every morning, pick a selection of good and positive wisdom and read 1-2 pages slowly, imbibing very strongly and bringing it into practice the entire day.
9. Learn meditation and practice before going to sleep and the first thing in the morning as you wake up. Fill yourself with spiritual power from the Supreme Being or God and experience determination.
10. Talk to God as a friend in every action throughout the day and use his mind and your hands to perform actions. In this way, your actions will be positive and powerful, without any mistakes and you will be able to face all situations easily.

These are 10 steps to a positive lifestyle. Following these steps will open the door of a life full of stability and power. Situations will become like the passing breeze, which will not disturb you in any away. In fact, you will become like a pillar of strength in your family and amidst your colleagues at work, standing tall and upright and never bowing down mentally and emotionally because of lack of spiritual strength.

10 Steps To A Positive Lifestyle (Part 2)

A stage of power and complete mind control in which not a single thought in your mind is lacking determination and hope can be achieved while living in this world amidst difficult situations and people. What we need to give attention to is the foundation of our thoughts, which is our personality. Our original qualities are peace, joy, love, bliss, purity, power and wisdom. These are 7 basic virtues which the soul is full of originally. As we have taken many births and lost soul energy and become discharged, these 7 qualities have been reducing and our positive personality has reduced in quality and extent. Instead, we have become full of weaknesses like anger, ego, greed, lust, fear, attachment, jealousy, insecurity, low self-esteem, revenge and hatred. Due to this, soul strength has reduced further and the clouds of negative situations influence us regularly and very easily.

Let’s look at and discover a few methods to rediscover our constant positivity in every situation. Let’s take 10 everyday steps to a positive lifestyle:

1. Create an affirmation of success and determination every morning and maintain its memory in the mind throughout the day.
2. Make a check list in the night of mistakes committed in the entire day and prevent their re-occurrence the next day. Weaknesses are like leakages inside the soul and reduce soul strength.
3. Every morning, choose one quality and bring it into practice the whole day. Radiate the quality to others and give everyone a feeling of subtle fulfillment, as they meet you in the entire day.
4. Look at atleast one quality, specialty, skill or talent in everyone. Turn you mind and eyes away from any weakness or weaknesses you see in anyone.

Respect for others enables them to strengthen themselves and progress.

Contemplation:When you have respect for others you are actually creating an environment in which they can strengthen themselves and grow. You are not caught up with their weaknesses but are encouraging them to use their specilaities.

Application: When you see someone working with his weakness think of one speciality in that person and relate to him with this speciality. Also draw his attention to it and slowly you’ll find him getting stronger.

10 Steps To A Positive Lifestyle (Part 1)

As we progress in the journey of life, at times there can be moments which redefine our life and destiny. These are those moments when something important occurs in our life and life is not the same again after that. Let’s say you get a very important educational degree in your life and your life is transformed as you become very successful in your career after that and life is a beautiful and eventful joyride. You get lots of praise and honour in your family, from your friends and in the world. Now let’s look at something else – I lose my job suddenly and a workplace, to which I gave my entire life and time and effort, gives me something bad in return. I am devastated. How could this happen to me – my company telling me to leave? This is a depressive moment in my life. The reason why we have mentioned such opposite examples is because life is full of both of these. To remain stable and the same in victory and defeat, praise and insult, joy and sorrow is the sign of a truly successful person.

We all know that some sages and wise saints in ancient times had mastered the art of remaining happy and peaceful irrespective of what life presented to them. We are people living in society and running jobs and families, owning businesses and sending children to school and are very often faced with physical health problems, problems in relationships in family and the workplace and other problems at home and at work. In the midst of all this, we need to remain stable, powerful, content and peaceful. The ups and downs will come and go. But we should not leave our internal state of fulfillment and satisfaction. Such a stage is wisdom followed in life and not just wisdom found in books. Let’s discover this stage and how to imbibe a positive lifestyle in this message.

Where there is true respect there is humility.

Contemplation:The more respect is measured on the basis of something external, the greater the desire for recognition from others. The greater the desire, the more one falls victim to ego and there cannot be humility.

Application: Start the day with a thought that brings self-respect. Tell yourself that you are special and you will use your speciality throughout the day. You will not dominate or limit the freedom of anyone.

Being Emotional – Right Or Not (Part 3)?

Looking at the world around us, it is an infinite set of people, situations, objects and different types of problems that we face every now and then. Although many people would argue, that being emotional and crying sometimes in happiness and love and sometimes in sorrow and discontentment is natural. Also, letting out your tears for your loved ones in different negative as well as positive situations has existed forever. But, this is not true. The inner being or soul has come down the steps of births and rebirths and become weaker over a period of time. The soul is powerful when it begins to play its part in the world and is not so attached to everything around it. As a result it is lesser emotional but more happier. Strange as it may sound, as it became weaker, it became more emotional and less happier.

The key to freeing yourself is first the acceptance that to be over emotional is not exactly being free, which we have explained in the last two days’ messages. The next step is to achieve freedom by changing your consciousness. Create positive affirmations and keep them in your mind the entire day and bring them into your actions. A simple e.g. I am a being of light, a spiritual energy full of power. I look through the windows of my eyes at everything around me. I radiate spiritual power and joy to every scene, every person, every object. I am no longer dependent on receiving their energy and becoming fulfilled. I am a soul full of all attainments. Another e.g. I am a soul, full of immense love. I love everyone and everything with a big heart, but I am not attached. So I am never hurt in love. I am a pillar of strength in providing positivity to every negative situation of life. So I do not feel hurt in sorrow and rejection also.

You’ll be able to do your best when you have respect for the tasks that you are involved in.

Contemplation:Even the smallest task that you do becomes special when you understand why you are doing it. It then enables you to have respect for whatever you do. When you work with this respect you’ll automatically do the best.

Application: Check what your feelings are in all the tasks that you are involved in throughout the day. In case you find any task as unimportant don’t do it. Also tell yourself at the beginning of the day that today you will take the time to do everything properly.

Being Emotional – Right Or Not (Part 2)?

Continuing from yesterday’s message, emotional power comes from giving and emotional weakness, comes when our primary purpose is to take. When we absorb a lot from life’s scenes, circumstances and also from people’s minds, words and their actions, sometimes we feel it is an empowering experience. But remember, if you absorb the good, you will also absorb the bad because that is what your mindset is. It is like the vacuum cleaner. You clean your carpet with it. It absorbs the dust and if your ring was lying on the carpet, it would suck in that too. Also, giving is receiving. Every positive emotion we give, it is increasing inside us at the same time, as it flows from within us to everyone and everything around us.

Based on this principle, when we look to take from a positive scene, we will feel emotionally joyful and when we are taking from a negative scene, we feel emotionally sorrowful. The more we look to make our emotional world dependent on the external situations or stimulus, the more our responses are under their influence. Being over emotional, whether in joy or in sorrow, is a sign of dependency. That does not mean we become cold and boring and do not enjoy life’s beautiful moments, which it has to offer. Also, we love everyone and are full of sympathy where required. But we are a little detached while viewing life. A spectator in a sports event sits on an emotional roller coaster watching his favourite team or player perform, sometimes over happy and sometimes unhappy. A spectator with a spiritual consciousness does not get overawed by his team’s or player’s performance. He enjoys the victorious moments and views the moments of failure, both without getting moved emotionally. This is not boring, but more empowering.

You get respect from others when you have respect for yourself.

Contemplation:Every human being has innate worth which is pure and virtuous. Faith in the self brings out the potential within and this brings respect for the self. Self-respect makes you self-reliant and makes others respect you.

Application: In order to get respect from others, increase your own self-respect. For this find something unique in yourself and each morning remind yourself of this speciality. Also make sure you work at least once with this speciality throughout the day.

Being Emotional – Right Or Not (Part 1)?

Living a life full of twists and turns and different scenes, it is very easy to become emotionally attached to scenes happening around you and sometimes become disheartened or sorrowful and sometimes even emotionally joyful. Both are normal emotions. Yes we thought so! What is wrong with experiencing pain when I watch an accident on the road and what is wrong with becoming emotional and crying, when I watch a moving emotion filled movie. How can you take away these two experiences from life? The world told us they are correct. When we grew up, we often cried, sometimes in sorrow and many a times in joy. Did you go to your best friend’s birthday and become excessively emotional and when your younger brother or sister went down with fever, you sometimes cried seeing his or her pain. Our parents taught us this is what life is all about – mixed shades of emotional joy and emotional sorrow make up the painting of life. In fact, we grew up seeing them doing that in their worldly duties and we thought it was correct. Now! Wait a moment! Do I like sitting on this emotional roller-coaster so regularly and so much? How can I free myself?

We all look at life’s scenes with an attitude of receiving or taking something from life. We rarely think of giving to life’s scenes. Take the example of the sun in nature. The quality of the sun is giving, it never seeks to receive or take. And it is a powerful force of nature. Let’s emerge this virtue in ourselves. That will make me emotionally powerful inside and I will be lighter, happier and more contented in life’s different situations. So from today look to give to life’s different scenes and filling them with the primary qualities of life – peace, love and joy. On the other hand, if we are trying to fill ourselves with these qualities by taking them from people and situations, we will become emotionally weak.

Respect is to recognize and appreciate the unique role of each and everyone.

Contemplation:Each one is unique with his own specialities. When you recognize the role of each one, you can understand that he is playing his part accurately. Then you can acknowledge even the smallest contribution and you’ll be free from expectations.

Application: When you find yourself having negative thoughts towards any one, make the practice of looking at one speciality in that person and relate to it. Also tell yourself that without the role of this particular person the drama would not be complete.

Carrying Forward Of Special Talents

Everything that an individual does i.e. a soul does using the medium of the physical body is registered in the soul as a sanskara. Sanskaras, therefore, are the foundation of our present personalities and all our special talents and inclinations. There have been many famous personalities including artists, musicians, engineers, sportsmen, etc. who, before attaining phenomenal success in their respective fields, displayed amazing talents related to their respective field at a very young age. When and where could they have mastered these talents so well? It's obvious that amazing masteries at a very young age are not inherited from our parents. These talents have been developed and brought into practice in previous births, as a result of which sanskaras of the talents are created inside the soul. These sanskaras are then carried into the next births, and are brought into actions in the new births.

A more common day-to-day example is the following: A child is born into a family of doctors where, from the beginning, all efforts are made to mould and prepare him to become a doctor, according to family tradition. However, from an early age, the child shows strong tendencies to become an actor, starts to take part extensively in theatre activities at school and the talent starts manifesting itself. This example demonstrates that the characteristics a soul carries from previous experiences of previous births will take it in a specific direction despite attempts made by the family on the contrary. So in short, genius is experience. Some think that it's a gift or talent, but it is the fruit of long experience of many lives. Some are older souls than others i.e. they have been present on the world stage since a longer period of time and have covered a journey of more number of births and so know more. This kind of unlimited, broad vision of life provides us answers to many questions.

When you look at the specialities in each one you can easily cooperate with others and receive their cooperation.

Contemplation:Each and every individual has something special. If you make the habit of seeing these specialities, you will find that others are able to relate to you with these specialities and you can easily get their cooperation. You will also be able to cooperate with them easily.

Application: Think of one person you are not able to cooperate with. Now think of one speciality of that person. Make sure you relate to this speciality whenever you come into contact with this person. As you continue this practice you will find your negativity vanishing away and cooperation becomes easy.
