Soul Sustenance 13-02-2019

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.

Message for the day 13-02-2019

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.
