TRUE PEACE OF MIND: The most important part of you is your mind (not your brain – the brain is the hardware and the mind creates the software). Care for your mind, make friends with it, always feed it healthy food, engage it in positive activity, and exercise it with knowledge and wisdom.
Calming The Mind: Don’t give your mind permission to get disturbed. A disturbed mind is easily influenced. This will cost you your peace. Learn to maintain your peace by freeing yourself from attachments. A calm mind is not just peaceful; it is focused, self-directing and divine.
Perceive Positively: True self-awareness, plus the ability to choose our perceptions of life, the universe and everything, is the basis of free will. Every situation and scene in front of us has so many possibilities in terms of how we perceive and interpret.
Power On: Each day we all need to recharge our spiritual battery, otherwise the light of our consciousness becomes dim, thoughts become fuzzy, and decisions are impregnated with doubt. Power is available inside and outside. Inside us we have a spiritual center, at the core of our consciousness, pure radiant spiritual light. This is what we are.
Procrastination: Procrastination is not only the thief of time; it is the creator of subtle inner tension. You know you are cheating yourself. There are three secrets to overcoming procrastination. 1. Don’t wait till you feel like doing it – the feeling will come when you start doing it. 2. List all the things you have to do and then prioritize the list. 3. Create a vision of the result and be motivated by the vision of the outcome, not the thought of the process.
Mindful Moments: Most of us are of sound mind, but many of us have trouble maintaining a note of harmony and peace. Most of us know how to think, but few of us are able to control our thoughts.
Solution: – Scientist have been able to prove that meditation and rigorous mindfulness training can lower blood pressure, increase immune response and possibly even affect gene expression. Scientific study is also showing that meditation can have an impact on the structure of the brain itself. Educators are also turning to mindfulness with increasing frequency – perhaps a good thing, considering how digital technology is splitting kids’ attention spans too. (The average American teen sends and receives more than 3,000 text messages a month.)
Contentment: The more positive the thoughts flowing through one’s mind, the more contented one will feel. It is easy to feel contented when we are praised and appreciated but to remain contented when we are being criticized and rejected is the mark of real spiritual strength. The way to develop this level of strength is to learn about God’s way of loving. Only when I am in deep contemplation can I see God showing me the kind of love I need to express so that I myself never reject or criticize and always generate good wishes for others. Then I will feel satisfied no matter what life throws at me.
Anger is weakness, Tolerance is bravery and Humility makes you strong.
