The Beauty Of Giving (Part 1)

Have you ever wondered why is it so difficult to forgive someone who has wronged you in any way? There are people who do not seem to bother about the hurt and pain that they may seem to receive from people around them. After all pain is our response to people and pain is not given by others to us. Then there are people who can carry the memories of a negative incident for a complete lifetime so much that it can affect their physical health and moods to a very large extent. Is it not easy to forgive and forget? Or is it for some the most difficult thing to do? Why the difference?

There was once a shopkeeper in a little village of Southern India who used to sell coconuts to people. Once while selling his product to a rich trader, he was asked by the trader – Can you lend me a few coconuts for a day? I will return them to you in the evening. The shopkeeper replied – I can sell the coconuts to you at a lower rate if you wish but I cannot lend them to you. The trader needed the coconuts just for a function as decoration. In the same manner, at times we are like this shopkeeper. We indulge in trade in our relationships. We want something in return for everything we give. We want love in return of love. We want happiness when we give happiness to someone. When this does not happen we are hurt and cannot forget what happened. Also, another energy that we often transmit to others is one of begging. We beg for peace, love and joy all the time. What that means is we are always asking for positivity from others, which will not always come. Suppose you are a part of a group of friends with different personalities and a lot of positive and negative characteristics which everyone possesses. Do you always get what you expect from each one? No. So how does one handle this?

-----------------------------------------

Have the determination to do things immediately.

Contemplation:The one slogan that is good to remember is ‘Now or never’. If we are not able to use the thought we have immediately we will never be able to, because the strength of the thought begins to gradually reduce till it doesn’t seem important anymore. Also there might not be enough time for you in the future.

Application: Think of something that you want to do and take a thought, ‘if I do it now it will happen or it can never happen.’ When you think in this way you will not postpone but do what is required immediately.

Meet People With A Clean Slate

If your office colleague made a mistake today, will he repeat it tomorrow? If your family member was rude to you today, will he not change tomorrow? Instead of looking forward to a better tomorrow, do you jump to a negative conclusion - These people will never change! Whether we realize or not, everyone is constantly changing, either for better or worse. This means people who gave us tough times today could leave us feeling pleasant tomorrow. We just need to take care that we change to be better – more accepting, respectful, compassionate. Complaining and criticizing deplete our energy further. Understanding that the other person might have had a bad day today, let’s bless both of us: My next interaction with him will be awesome. Our vibrations uplift us and empower them. Each day is a new beginning; each hour is a fresh start. Let’s meet people with a clean slate each time – deleting unpleasant memories, perceptions and preconceived notions from our mind.

Whether we realize it or not, we are all changing at every moment because of information, because of past experiences or because of our desire to change. We and other people are no longer who we were yesterday, last month or last year. When we delete the past images of people, we perceive them fresh in each meeting. Take a moment to prepare yourself to interact with everyone in a healthy manner today. When you remove the filter of the impression you had created based on your previous meeting, you see people the way they truly are today. You stop referring to the past, so you do not influence the present or future with the energy of the past. By doing this you will heal yourself, heal your relationships and radiate clean vibrations.

You need the power of determination to bring thought into practice.

Contemplation:We do have a number of thoughts that we would like to put into practice. Most of the times it doesn’t happen that way and they remain merely thoughts. It is necessary to strengthen such thoughts with the power of determination and you will be able to make them practical.

Application: Think of something that you wanted to do but could not bring into practice. Now take this thought once again and see why it is important for you to bring it into practice. Once you understand this you will be able to be determined to put it into practice.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 21-04-2019

The Location Of The Soul Inside The Body

The soul has the following basic functions to perform:

- to give life to the body and to maintain life inside it,
- to express and experience its role through the body, and
- to receive the rewards or fruits of past actions performed in previous births, through the body.


These functions are controlled and monitored by the soul via the nervous and hormonal systems from a particular point in the area of the brain which contains the thalamus, hypothalamus, pituitary and pineal glands. This region is known as the seat of the soul, or the third eye. The connection between the physical (body) and the non-physical (soul) is by the medium of thought energy. Many religions and philosophies place great importance on the third eye, or eye of the mind. When viewed from the front, this region appears to be between and slightly above the line of the eyebrows. It's for this reason that Hindus use a tilak, a dot in red or sandalwood paste in the middle of the forehead. Christians also make the sign of the cross in this region. Even when one makes a mistake or expresses tiredness it's to this region that we put the hands in the gestures of self-dismay or exhaustion. After all the soul subconsciously knows that it makes the mistakes and not the body. When people are concentrating deeply in thought it is this area of the forehead where creases or lines are formed on the skin.

Give the ones in need, the support of your courage.

Contemplation:Whatever the situation or however much in need a person might be, the best help you can offer is of making them courageous. They will then work on their situation and succeed.

Application: When you find someone weak or in need, instead of becoming weak along with them, maintain your courage and you will be able to give this support to the others too. Then they will get the courage to work on their problem.

Attaining Success Using The Tool Of Visualization

A study shows that the majority of sportsmen and women, who win at prominent international events, are trained to use the tool of visualization to achieve success. Many months before the actual event, they visualize i.e. they create pictures of success inside their minds that they have already achieved their goal. The same principle of visualization is also used to cure patients from major illnesses including cancer. Patients are taught to visualize their diseased organs free from illnesses or visualize the organs receiving healing energy in some form or the other. Visualization helps people to have 100% belief in themselves that they will achieve the desired goal. The efforts made with this powerful energy of belief have a greater probability of success than when you make the efforts without believing in what you are doing and without visualizing yourself as achieving your objectives.

If you think about your failures from the past, you stop believing in yourself, lose your enthusiasm and get frustrated. Visualizing images of a positive future helps you work from the present towards the future, without allowing the past failures to have any negative influence on you. You visualize yourself as a person, who has already overcome his fears and negative habits, and the fears are removed and the negative habits are transformed. You see yourself already transformed e.g. you say - I am a soul full of all powers and not - I am going to or am trying to fill myself with all powers. The power of that vision and the positive affirmations, combined together, is such that it helps you to bring about a major change in yourself, not just a small change, because you make it easy for your sub-conscious mind that is sleeping to wake up and realize its potential. You stop always expecting the worst and hope for, visualize and believe in the best.

Even when things go wrong have the courage to move on.

Contemplation:Mistakes do happen, but you must keep your heart happy and have the courage for the future. Whatever happens there is always a lesson to be learnt which would be useful for the future. Take this learning and move forward with courage.

Application: When things go wrong in a big way remember that those obstacles have come to make you stronger. Take the determined thought not to lose courage whatever happens. Maintain your courage and you will find things turning out the best.

A Journey To Happiness Or A Journey Of Happiness (Part 3)?

Happiness at all levels can be experienced when life is full of the treasure of beautiful relationships. The closest person to you is your own self. A good relationship with the self where there is a clear understanding of your own spiritual identity and you also know what is your value and how special you are in different ways, is the key to happiness. Also, the closer you are to your own self, the more beautiful your relationship with God and with others will be. God himself is an Ocean of positive personality characteristics and experiencing each shade of his personality and different relationships with him will make you happier and full of wisdom and strength. Also, the more you love God and hold his hand in every sphere of life, the more other people will be closer and more content with you, which will make life beautiful and light at every step. It is said that the power of love can move mountains. So loving the self, God and others and receiving love in return will make you enthusiastic in your life journey to fulfill different tasks and objectives. A roller-coaster life ride full of the rises of will happens and the falls of will not happens will get replaced by a smooth train ride in which you constantly experience the breeze of satisfaction and joy to the fullest, irrespective of the type of events happening in your life.

Lastly, it is said that the biggest virtue is to share virtues or qualities with others. In other words, experiencing your own qualities, increasing them and then radiating them to others through your face, your eyes, your smile, your sweet words and your noble actions will not only make others happier. But their happiness and blessings full of light and love will reach you and make you happy in return. Goodness shared is goodness earned. And goodness gained inside the self is opening the treasure of joy and lightness inside you. So, aim to be the nicest person in the world, full of goodness and you will become the happiest person in the world. This is because an emotionally wealthy person is wealthy in happiness too.

When courage is combined with understanding you can achieve success.

Contemplation:Instead of blindly taking risks thinking it is courage, when you do anything with knowledge and understanding you receive success. Knowledge gives you the ability to discriminate enabling you to try out something new, yet not taking unwanted risks.

Application: Before you start off with something new consider carefully if what you are doing is right. Think of the consequences of the action too. When you pay attention in this way you will never take unwanted risks even while maintaining your courage.

A Journey To Happiness Or A Journey Of Happiness (Part 2)?

It is worth wondering that obstacles on the life journey can be temporary obstructions in our achievements, but not obstructions in our happiness. Only then the journey of life will be a journey of happiness and not a journey to happiness. One of the most important ways of remaining happy during the journey with many challenges co-existing at the same time is increasing the wealth of our thinking. The right type of thinking will make us happy even if there are unfinished tasks or goals or life events which we are keenly anticipating to get over. Raise the bar of your thinking on a challenging day and see how rich and full you feel internally. This will make you pure happiness conscious and not challenge conscious and also not date conscious, the date when the challenge will be overcome which you waiting to see unfold in front of your eyes. The source of rich thinking is a choice for you to make. You can make a good selection, you can choose the message that we send you everyday and feed that source every day to your mind before leaving for work or starting any day-long activity which keeps you occupied.

Also, have you heard the story of the woodcutter who used to work very hard the whole day but used to not cut much by the end of the day without realizing the reason for the same. This went on for many days until one fine day someone suggested to him that why don’t you sharpen your axe? He did that and his tiring days got over. Likewise we go on and on the whole day in search of different life purposes without ever sparing a thought that our axe which is our strengths, specialties and skills, needs to be sharpened. Not a single day should pass without experiencing our strengths, positives and special personality traits including our unique talents. You might wonder how we will experience these? The path is simple – by bringing them into practical action. This will make you fuller. But along with that, both - the practical application of these unique positives inside you and the pure happiness due to the high self-esteem experienced as a result of that, will make it easier to fulfill your ambitions faster.

With every step that you take with courage you receive a thousand fold help from God.

Contemplation:If there is fear due to which you are not able to take the first step, you will not able to achieve big things. Even if something looks impossible, with your step of courage it can be made possible and you will receive maximum help. God of course doesn’t do your work but he does the work of giving you help.

Application: Start off something new after surrendering it to God not just as a ritual, but with firm faith in your mind that you will receive His help. When you do this, help will surely come from some or the other means.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 17-04-2019

--------------------------------------
Soul Sustenance 17-04-2019
--------------------------------------

A Journey To Happiness Or A Journey Of Happiness (Part 1)?

We commonly express the following incorrect words in our everyday interactions - Wait till I achieve this particular goal, whether it be a promotion, success in a particular exam, marriage, retirement, a birth of a child or an end of a difficult situation and I will be happy. Why are all of these incorrect words? Aren’t these all life is all about? Isn’t calling all of them incorrect unnatural? Try remembering a single moment in your life without these and you will be left wondering. It is important to realize the futility of waiting for goals to be achieved and then becoming happy. So it is good to introspect that is it a journey to happiness or is it a journey of happiness? The wait for happiness is futile because one goal is followed by another challenge; the challenge is followed by another unexpected phase, leaving us without any moments to experience our desired happiness amidst so many uncomfortable pressure points.

Happiness can be defined as a state of being created, while working towards a goal, not a feeling to be experienced after achieving the goal. This is simply because life is a journey with a series of goals, sometimes one after the other and sometimes with two or even more than two goals co-existing with each other. So should one anxiously wait for the goals to be achieved or should one take the wait for goals to be achieved, in one’s stride accepting it as an integral part of our life journey. For very long, we have associated happiness with achievement and this has become an integral part of our modern day belief system, as the speed of life has become faster and more challenging with each day. We suggest a change in this ideology and associate happiness with experiencing each day – (i) experiencing creative ideas (ii) experiencing your strengths, specialties and skills by bringing them in action. (iii) experiencing beautiful relationships with the self, with God and with others. (iv) experiencing goodness and beautiful virtues and giving others the experience of the same.

You can maintain your courage when you have the faith that you are victorious.

Contemplation:To believe that you are victorious is to give yourself the wings and the strength to fly. With just this belief you will have the courage to work on your obstacles with ease and win over them.
