5 Tips For Overcoming Mental Fatigue (Part 1)

We all require regular periods of silence and solitude in our lives in the midst of a fast lifestyle with busy days, where most of us, have a lot of actions to perform. So, a good question to ask oneself is that do I like a mind which is full of thoughts or do I like it with fewer thoughts and greater spaces between them. Once upon a time, there was a group of people travelling from one country to another on foot. They had great loads to carry on their backs and it was a tiring journey. By the time, they reached their destination, they had lost a lot of energy and their enthusiasm was at its lowest. They were people whose task was to carry stuff from one place to another. Who would not like a life with lesser weight to carry? In the same manner, our emotional carriers are our minds which carry the weight of our thoughts. The fewer the thoughts and the lighter they are, the more our minds will be light and always enthusiastic. Let’s look at five techniques to keep our minds flying in joy always:

1. Create One Thought At A Time – A mind which is anxious and full of fear thinks excessively and faster than what is required at that point of time. Also, such a mind sometimes creates false future realities, which increase the number of thoughts, as it anticipates and then tries to solve non-existent problems that have not yet occurred, but the mind fears that they may occur. This is what we commonly negative thinking. On the other hand, positive thinking is the visualization of positive scenes for the future, with complete hope and determination. When we do this regularly in all types of situations, our mind slows down and every thought is like a little atom which sits inside the mind and keeps us relaxed and comfortable.

The one who is selfless is the one who is the best judge.

Expression: When I have to take a decision, either for others or myself, there is some kind of selfishness or greed involved in it. When I think only of my selfish desires, my judgement would not be accurate.

Experience: I need to be detached and see what benefit there is for each one with the choice that I am going to make. The more I think of the benefit of all, the more my judgement is accurate.

Happiness: Incorrect Beliefs And The Truth (Part 2)

Yesterday we identified how owing to one wrong belief, we had equated happiness to our accomplishments. Today let us check two more incorrect beliefs and understand the truth.

Belief 2: I can buy happiness.
Suppose I believe that buying my dream car gives me happiness, I may purchase and own the most expensive car. I have essentially bought physical comfort. While on a long drive in it, I could get one phone call conveying an unpleasant news which finishes my happiness. If my car gave happiness, happiness would stay despite the call. Even after the call, my car continues to give physical comfort and my physical body is comfortable. Since happiness is an emotional comfort, it disappeared when I (who is looking for happiness) went into pain after the call. Why do we feel happy upon buying a car? Because when we create a thought - I bought my dream car it generates a feeling of happiness. So we used an object (car) as a stimulus to create a response (positive thought).

Truth: Let us not purchase objects seeking happiness in them. Everything physical is designed to give physical comfort. Happiness is an emotional comfort.

Belief 3: Family and friends give me happiness.
Oscillating between acceptance and expectations, our relationships are getting strained. We focus on what to get from relationships rather than give. Our expectations from each other is getting long. We are accepting people only when they, speak, behave as per our needs. If I equate my happiness to others obeying me, it cannot last. No sooner than someone obeys the first time, I hand out my next expectation. So happiness leaves me at this point, only to return if the person obeys again. Else I get upset. People have their definitions of rights and wrongs, so setting expectations will always hamper relationships and ruin happiness. Truth: No one can make us happy or sad. Happiness is our emotion, our internal creation regardless of quality of our relationships.

Success comes about only when there is an effort to bring about transformation.

Expression: When I am working towards being successful I usually want to work with just those personality treats that I have always been working with before. But this does not always bring me success. Then the reaction is to blame the people around you or blame the people around you or the situations.

Experience: Learning from each situation and working to bring about steady transformation brings constant success for me whatever the situations I will surely feel successful.

Happiness: Incorrect Beliefs And The Truth (Part 1)

A significant number of people are suffering from depression in the world today. This is a hint for us to pause and ask if we are doing enough for our mental wellness, which is directly connected to emotional wellness. If we experience stress, anger, fear, hurt, jealousy, our emotional health suffers. Basically, we are caught in these negative emotions in pursuit of happiness. Most of us begin chasing dreams since childhood and do not pause thereafter for decades, because of the biggest incorrect belief that our happiness is what we acquire — that happiness is a byproduct of our belongings. So, we seek happiness in accomplishments, possessions and relationships. Let us scrutinize these three popular but misleading beliefs.

Belief 1: Accomplishments make me happy.
Suppose I am an employee who knows that it takes two years to be promoted as a manager, I sincerely work for it. But my own conditioned thought often reminds me - I will be happy when promoted as a manager. So I do not permit myself to be happy today, I will not permit for two more years. Some day if I sense that my promotion may not happen due to my inefficiency, issue with team members or a management decision, I create stress, anger and anxiety - as I believe these are not only affecting my career but snatching my happiness. I may resort to unfair means to get the promotion. So I create and transmit negativity, going into pain for two long years. If in this state I become a manager, can I be happy? Also such happiness does not last as I will focus on the next promotion, then the next...

Truth: Happiness is not in our accomplishments. It is not to be postponed until our goal is reached. Happiness is in our way of thinking along the way, while working towards the goal.

Tomorrow we shall evaluate two other belief systems.

A deep understanding and an attitude of pure feelings results in positive thinking.

Expression: When we talk about positive thinking, it is usually just 'think positive' and 'be positive'. But just saying this, either to others or to myself, doesn't help to change my thoughts permanently, in fact usually, not even temporarily.

Experience: Real positive thinking is much deeper than just to think positive. For this I need to understand and see things as they are, without colouring them with my own attitudes. Then I can deal with things in the most appropriate way, having understood everything accurately.

Contentment - Imbibe And Radiate

A life-skill that we need to learn, is to balance our contentment and our desires. Let’s check if we say, After I make all these improvements in my life, I’ll be contented, or do we say I’m contented right now, and ready to improve further. Contentment doesn’t mean we have no desire to achieve. It means we are already satisfied, and willing to work harder to improve our future. Have you come across people achieving goals, doing well, leading comfortable lives, but never contented? Have you also met someone who has hardly achieved anything, but is very contented in life? Does it set you thinking about the link between contentment and achievement? Contentment is independent of who we are, what we have or what we achieve. It is a beautiful quality of being happy with everything at the moment, while working towards more. Contentment is to be cultivated, irrespective of external situations and people. Being content does not imply we withdraw, be lethargic, stop achieving or settle with what we have. It simply means everything happening at this moment – who we are, what is happening to us and around us, and the people we are with - everything is fine the way it is, and we are ready to work on things further. It takes just one thought to be contented. Your energy of satisfaction fuels your positivity and power to your situations.

Before beginning the day, remind yourself everyday that you are a contented being. Always be contented with every scene of your life, with yourself, with your family, with your work, with what is happening to you, around you, to the people you are with. Everything is fine, happening exactly the way it is meant to be, the way you are is perfect, what you have is enough and people and situations around you are right. Your contentment is a reflection of your happiness and peace within. Nothing outside needs to be perfect for you to experience contentment. Never compromise on your values of peace, love and happiness while working towards your goals. Your contentment is not dependent on what you have achieved. Be satisfied with what you have. Remaining contented, now work towards more, develop healthier habits, learn new skills, achieve meaningful goals and work on self-improvement. Radiate your highest vibration to every scene. Radiate your peace, purity and power to every scene and elevate the energy of the next scene. Co-operate with everyone instead of competing. The positivity you create from within, the blessings you get from people keeps you contented, happy and successful always.

A single positive thought helps in changing the entire situation.

Expression: When I am faced with a negative situation the first thought I usually get is a negative one. The thoughts that I follow are naturally negative too because the mind looks for reasons to sustain that negative frame of mind.

Experience: I need to make the effort of intentionally taking a positive thought, thus I find all other connected positive thoughts coming up naturally this is because the situation doesn't look so difficult or challenging with my positive frame of mind.

Overcoming Addiction To Photographs And Selfies

Before the era of smartphones, taking a photo was a process in itself. Today we are always eager capturing pictures of ourselves and our lives too often, and feel compelled to upload them on social media to get attention. Addiction to capturing life’s moments with a camera is destroying our ability to capture vibrations of the experience on our mind. Do you inevitably leave late for a party as you’re clicking selfies and uploading them on social media? Can you just not stop capturing videos on every occasion? And do you feel let down if your posts don’t gather enough Likes? We enjoy reflecting on precious memories through photos and videos. But the urge to click-every-moment is leading to an addiction of posting them on social media and seeking public approval. Every scene radiates an energy that is to be experienced. We also need to radiate our own good energy to that scene. In striving for a perfect photo, we tend to pose and pretend to a point where our authentic energy gets blocked. Let’s honour privacy. Capture photos for yourself, not for public approval.

Enjoy life’s scenes, there is beauty and goodness everywhere. You visit many beautiful places, meet so many loveful people and attend several memorable events. There is a lot happening and many memories to cherish. But do not become addicted to clicking photos to make memories. When there is a picture-perfect scene, just take a couple of photos if needed and put the camera down to feel the vibrations and to take in the moment. Experience the energy and not just view it through the lens of a camera, absorb the vibrations and radiate your pure vibrations to the scene. Capture your life’s memories on your mind and rely on your memory. It is sharp and strong. Emotionally connect back to that memory. When family or friends share their photos regularly, don’t engage in social competition and don’t crave for attention. Even if you need to share it with someone it shouldn't be to get their approval. Approve of yourself and have all the good times recorded on your mind. Repeat this affirmation 3 times to de-addict from constantly taking self-portraits or other pictures - I am a blissful being. I record life’s beautiful scenes on the screen of my mind, not on my camera. I hold precious life’s moments in my memory. I radiate peace and happiness to every scene and fully live the experience.

Contentment makes me a giver.

Expression: My mind is busy usually with expectations. I continue to expect something or the other from people. Yet I find that people are too busy fulfilling their own expectations to notice or to give what I need. Since my expectations are not fulfilled I am not able to be available for others and give them what they need.

Experience: I need to be so aware of what I have and be content with it, that people should never think about what I need but should be able to take from me what they need. Then I'll be free from expectations and give others what is required.

Imbibing A Character Of Truth (Part 3)

Very often while dealing with people of different types, a lot of negative personality characteristics or weaknesses come into our behavior and sometimes our good qualities get hidden. In such circumstances, people often see us as false and although we are truthful in many ways and we see ourselves that way, one or two weaknesses spoil that truthful nature at times. So, although, at heart, we want to be truthful and we are also, but the little shades of weaknesses, which may not be very much, make us seen as negatively natured. So a truthful nature means all virtues or qualities exist inside us 100% and everyone appreciates them all the times. The literal meaning of truth is not only honesty as we know it but complete purity or cleanliness of character.

Also, a beautiful and truthful nature also means one who does not pretend to be good but is good from deep inside. No one likes people who are good from the outside and will talk about you negatively in your absence. It is like showing a different face to people which others think is you. Also, in friendships or in relations of family, it is very commonly seen that that we will, especially with people close to us, share negative information about others’ behavior. We will also think that it is okay, because those people are not listening. But remember your words don’t reach them, but your thoughts and feelings definitely do. So, not only speak good about others but also think good about them. Be good in front of people and behind their back. That is truth in character and being virtuous always.

Bringing newness in dealing with life’s situations brings happiness.

Expression: When there is the desire to find new ways of responding to life’s challenges, unhappiness ends which in turn helps to fulfill one’s highest potential. All it needs is the determination to adopt a fresh awareness. Thus burdensome thoughts that drain out positive energy are set aside. The quality of life itself becomes better.

Experience: I experience a lot of happiness when there is newness brought in responding to situations. The potential and the energy of the mind is channelised in a positive way so there is an experience of fulfillment and satisfaction. The mind is not caught up with negative or waste but is busy trying for the best solutions in all situations.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 27-05-2020

Soul Sustenance 27-05-2020

Imbibing A Character Of Truth (Part 2)

God is an Ocean of Truth and the most perfect personality that exists. Also, the personality of God is transparent and clean and you will never find a single flaw in Him. The reason for this is that the qualities inside God are deep and not superficial. God is someone you feel comfortable with because He radiates true love for you with no artificialness. In the same way, we need to be extremely clean and truthful, just like God, with nothing to hide in our personality, from the world. The more transparent in your nature you become, the more people will come close to you and feel comfortable and at ease with you.

Also, let your qualities be visible to everyone so much that you are seen and talked about as someone as virtuous as God. Qualities like love, humility, sweetness and contentment bring people close to you. Also, let the qualities not change or reduce in any situation. Have you noticed that sometimes a quality inside you varies when you are with different people? With one person you are more humble than the other. In one situation, you are sweeter than in another. What this means is that qualities are there but they are not so full of truth and depth. A truthful soul means the qualities of such a soul are like pure gold. Such a soul is commonly experienced as a shining mirror by others, in which they see and realize their flaws easily and get inspired to become virtuous. This is a truthful personality.

To be healthy internally is to make the best use of all treasures.

Expression: A healthy intellect acts like a mother, always showing the right path. When internally one is strong, there is the natural ability to treat the mind with love and guide it towards the right direction. Such a healthy state of mind naturally enables the recognition and the proper utilisation of everything available.

Experience: Once I have learnt the art of guiding my mind in the right direction with love, I then never experience the difficulty of having to bring back the mind to the right thinking. Because the mind is totally under control in a very easy and natural way and I don’t have to control it or force it to think or not to think in a particular way.
