World like hand: –
The world is like a hand and its continents like our five fingers. Each finger is different and unique. Yet it is only when they all work together that whatever we put in our hand to succeeds.
Live Purposefully: –
If you do not live life on purpose you live life by accident.
Why do some days feel like a motorway pile up?
It is because you have not sorted out your purpose yet.
The highest purpose is always giving or serving others, without wanting anything in return.
This is why relaxation is always impossible if we are always on the take. There is an overall purpose of your life, and each of the many scenes, which fill your day, are opportunities to serve your purpose.
Take time to think deeply, listen to your intuition, and with patience, the rea- son why you are here, and what you uniquely have to give, will occur to you. Then you can live your life on purpose.
It is very good to give financial aid to the suffering, orphans and widowed, provided these three points are kept in view:
- a) We should not pride ourselves on being charitable, because we are doing no more than our duty. Everything we hold is on the account of our Master.
- b) In giving, we should not expect any reward either in this world or in the next; otherwise we are only lending money on interest.
- c) We should not expect any kind of praise or service from those to whom we give. Such charity is very helpful for the purification of the mind.”
It is always easy to expect and demand respect from others. It is simple to criticize others for not being respectful or for being rude or for not showing the proper appreciation. It is difficult to ask respect from myself.
Without respect I can never gain respect from others. Without self-respect I will always be performing self-defeating actions. Without self-respect I will always be looking outside myself and will constantly be at the whims and fancies of other people’s dispositions. I cannot get respect by asking for it. I only receive it when I give it to myself and to others.
Manage Emotions: –
When the energy of our consciousness is out of our control – the mind is ag- itated. We are being emotional. The solution is to detach from the inner storms, stand back and observe the hurricane pass. Detached observation with- draws the energy, which your emotions require to sustain them. When you watch your own anger, it dies. If you don’t detach from it, and observe it, it will be your master. Today is the day to practice positive, detached observation, and each emotion-filled moment is the opportunity. This is ‘real’ work. The work of one who is a master of his or her own consciousness. Are you a master or a slave?
Never Battle: –
Never fight. Nothing is worth fighting for. Wisdom never fights, it waits pa- tiently, speaks positively, releases easily, sees benefit in everything and envisions a future of abundance…knowing that all needs will be met at the right moment, in the right way. If you think life is a struggle you will always be struggling, if you think life is a breeze, your attitudes and actions will convey lightness and easiness. And that’s what attracts everything you need, and much more. Make today a breeze not a battle.
Sin Bin: –
It’s a great idea in sport. Too many fouls and you’re out of the game for a short period. The same happens in real life, but we are not aware of it. Sin essentially means forgetfulness, or more specifically, to forget yourself, to forget who you truly are, a pure, peaceful and loving spiritual being who occupies and animates a physical form. It is this forgetfulness that makes us commit what we call sinful action. If another person insults you, and you become angry in response, the sin is the anger, which you create not the insult. You are asleep to the truth that you just hurt yourself, and that you are the creator of your anger not the other person. And now you have a recording in your consciousness that contains an image of the other surrounded by the energy of anger. You put it there, not them. Next time you see them, up comes the anger again, and in that moment you are at your least effective, paralyzed by self created anger, you are effectively out of the game until you cool down. Interesting isn’t it. Never get angry, at anything, or anyone, anytime. It’s a sin!
