HOW TO LIVE AND LET LIVE

HOW TO LIVE AND LET LIVE UNDER ONE G-O-D

(Generator-Operator-Destroyer) – Universal Religion

Meditation: –

In these troubled times, if we can learn to meditate and find a place of calm and peace within ourselves every day, we will be able to face the challenges of life. Not only do we ourselves live more happy and balanced lives, receiving the joy of God’s love, but also we begin to radiate the peace and joy that we experience to those around us. We begin to see all others, indeed all life forms, as part of GOD.

Inner and Outer Peace: –

If each of us learned the art of meditation, this world would be filled with people who are peaceful and kind. There would be an end to wars and conflicts.

If followers of every religion truly observed the teachings of their great saints, the whole world would be an abode of love. People would be having direct experiences of GOD. People would have love for all humanity and all creation. There would be no wars, no crime, and no discord. There would be joy and peace on our planet.

Enjoy Moments of Silence: –

When you open your eyes in the morning, sit for a moment and appreciate the gift of a new day, create a peaceful thought and enjoy some moments of silence throughout the whole day. Thank GOD that you have consciousness.

Transformation: –

By transforming ourselves, we can transform others, including our family, community, society, and eventually the whole world. Opportunities come by creation, not by chance. It is my prayer that the spirit of unity enlivens each of you and that we rest not until the whole world is an abode of peace and love. If you speak badly of others, the negative energy that you put out into the universe will return to you. The same is true of positive energy

Cultivate Silence: –

Behind all creation is silence. Silence is the essential condition, the vital in- gredient for all creation and all that is created. It is a power in its own right. The artist starts with a blank canvas – silence. The composer places it between and behind the notes. The very ground of your being, out of which comes all your thoughts, is silence. The way to silence is through meditation. When you arrive in your own silence you will know true freedom and real power. Stop, take a minute, and listen to the silence within you today. Then be aware of what disturbs your inner silence. It could be negative thoughts, memories, and sensations. And when you are aware, you will know what is draining your creative power, and you will know what needs to change…on the inside!

Brotherhood And Unity: –

Understanding the worth and dignity of every human being is the key to brotherhood and unity.

The Power of Thoughts: –

If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.

Thoughts are more powerful than actions because they are the creators of actions. You have to keep in mind that the thought-waves of your good wishes and pure feelings, your vibrations of peace and love, can once again bring harmony in nature and happiness in the world.

Diamond Consciousness: –

When you look at the world through your physical eyes, you will see all the facets of our diversity: culture, race, personality, religion and so on. Seeing only through your physical eyes, it is easy to become stubborn and to try to prove yourself right. However where there is stubbornness there is no love. And trying to prove the self-right is equally offensive. A diamond will sparkle even in the dust; you do not ever need to prove that you are right. In the face of the dangers that come from seeing only with the physical eyes, always think: now is the time to go beyond all divisions, beyond all that limits, and our sense of self. Whatever the race, the religion, and the class – our consciousness now has to go beyond all of that.

Resolve Conflict: –

There has probably never been a time where there has been so much fear and conflict across the world, not just across oceans and borders but also across the breakfast table. In fact many now prefer conflict to peace, as they become addicted to the actions of anger and aggression, and the adrenaline rush, which results. They don’t really want conflict to end, in fact, they will say that some conflict is good to get things done and stimulate change. They are not aware that they are killing themselves. All conflict is simply a symptom of attachment to a position. And as we know, this generates fear, and fear if allowed to stay, eventually kills it’s host. All solutions are based on detachment or letting go. But that will be difficult until we can see that all possession is an illusion, that we have nothing to lose and that there are no victories in winning.

Lost: –

If wealth is lost, nothing is lost; if health is lost, something is lost; if character is lost, all is lost.

Seed Of Action (Creativity): –

Acts of virtue emerge from deep within, from an inner sanctuary of silence from which inspiration flows. Every action has its seed in a thought and every thought is a creation of the thinker, the SOUL. I choose what thoughts I want to create and as is my thinking so are my actions and also my experience in life. Going within, I touch the stillness and pure love that lie at the core of my being and every thought that I create is of benefit to myself and of benefit to humanity.

Do not try to be great, try to be good, for being good is great.

WHY PRAYER COULD BE GOOD MEDICINE

WHY PRAYER COULD BE GOOD MEDICINE

Neuroscientists are documenting changes in brain scans of meditating Tibetan Buddhists and praying nuns. They are trying to see whether meditation/prayer has meaning to people that translates into biology and affects a disease process.

Prayer and faith speeded recovery in illnesses ranging from depression to stroke to heart attack. Medical acceptance has grown along with solid scientific data on prayer’s impact on health. About 75% of studies of spirituality have confirmed health benefits. If prayers were available in pill form, no pharmacy could stock enough of it.

Scientists and spiritualists in general believe that GOD heals people in supernatural ways, but Science cannot shape a study to prove it. But we now know enough, based on solid research to say that meditation and prayer, much like exercise and diet, has a connection with better health.

Is prayer good medicine?

Dozens of studies have shown that individuals, who pray regularly and attend religious services, stay healthier and livelonger than those who rarely or never do – even when age, health, habits, demographics and other factors are considered. Prayer – Whether for oneself (petitionary prayer) or others (intercessory prayer) – affects the quality, if not quantity of life. It boosts morale, lower agitation, and loneliness and life dissatisfaction and enhances the ability to cope in men, women, the elderly, the young, the healthy and the sick. Another study has found that those who prayed regularly had significantly lower blood pressure than the less religious. A third study showed that those who attended religious services had healthier immune systems than those who did not. In studies at several medical centers, meditation/prayer and faith have been shown to speed recovery from depression, alcoholism, hip surgery, and drug addiction, stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, heart attacks and bypass surgery. Those who pray stay healthier and live longer than those who don’t.

How does prayer do these things?

Some scientists speculate that meditation/prayer may foster a state of peace and calm that could lead to beneficial changes in the cardiovascular and immune systems. Using sophisticated brain-imaging techniques, Dr. Andy Newberg of the university of Pennsylvania, author of “Why God won’t go away” has documented changes in blood flow in particular regions of the brain during prayer and meditation. This could be the link between religion and health benefits such as lower blood pressure, slower heart rates, decreased anxiety and an enhanced sense of well-being.

Can prayer heal others?

At nine medical centers around the country, 750 patients with potentially life- threatening heart problems participated in the MANTRA (Chant) project, a recently concluded randomized trial of intercessory prayer or distant healing. The names of half the patients were given to groups – including Carmelite nuns, Buddhist monks, Sufi Muslims and Evangelical Congregations- who prayed for their recovery. In the next few months they found that in a pilot study, prayer recipients had 50% to 100% fewer complications.

Skeptics remain dubious, “The premise behind distant healing is not scientific.” Even writers on spirituality, concede that science may never prove that prayer can heal others. That does not mean that people should not take advantage of this wonderful tool that is right at their fingertips.

BRIDGES OF INSPIRATION

BRIDGES OF INSPIRATION: –

Bridges between different minds.

Bridges of Service and Charity.
Bridges on the path of Duty and Devotion.

Bridges between Poor and Wealthy.

We understand now we are but one.
If we look for differences there are but none.
Such disparity exist only in the mind,
For in every heart and soul breathes the Lord Divine.

Bridge Builders: –

We give but little when we give of our possessions, it is when we give ourselves that we truly give. I found that in giving of myself, I feel myself growing more and more. Towards which direction and to which destination, I know not, but it sure does, make me a happier person and makes me have a smile on my face when I go to bed at night.

Meditation: –

It is a method of raising self-awareness leading to self-realization. Meditation stills the mind and empowers the intellect to achieve insight and understanding of the spiritual laws and principles, which sustain harmony and can bring natural renewal at all levels of life on earth. Meditation will enhance your inner virtues & inner peace.

Self Realization: –

Self-awareness and self-realization are cultivated in order to realize one’s true spiritual identity and nature. In the meditative state, the self is experienced as conscious energy taking the form of a point of light. This spiritual energy, the Soul, is experienced as both different and separate from the energy of the Material body.

Consciousness: –

The role of the mind and the interplay between, the intellect and the personality is understood through a process of self-observation. The meditator learns to be quiet and control the mind, allowing the conscience to be clearly heard. Conscious awareness of the soul is then developed, allowing full understanding of the self.

Relationship with God: –

As meditation helps consciousness move beyond self-limiting beliefs, the presence of GOD is experienced in the state of YOGA (a system of body and mind control) – a mental link with the source of spiritual power.

LIVE AND LET LIVE CONCEPTS:

LIVE AND LET LIVE CONCEPTS: –
Cliché not to interfere with other people’s business or preferences. I don’t care what they do! Live and let live, I always say. Your parents are strict. Mine just live and let live.

Believing that other people should be allowed to live their lives in the way that they want to, They seem as a society to have a very live and let live attitude towards issues like gay rights.

To accept other people as they are, although they may have a different way of life, I firmly believe in live and let live, and if people don’t rob, cheat or beat their wives, I have no complaints.

An idiom expressing the modern concept that one should let others live their lives as they see fit.

Live and let live is the spontaneous rise of non-aggressive co-operative behav-iour that developed during the First World War particularly during prolonged periods of Trench Warfare on the Western Front. Perhaps one of the most famous examples of this is the Christmas Truce of 1914. In the early months of immobile trench warfare, the truces were not unique to the Christmas period, and reflected a growing mood of “live and let live”, where infantry units in close proximity to each other would stop overtly aggressive behavior, and often engage in small-scale fraternization, engaging in conversation or bartering for cigarettes.

It is a process that can be characterised as the deliberate abstaining from the use of violence during war. Sometimes it can take the form of overt truces or pacts negotiated locally by soldiers. At other times it can be a tacit behaviour— sometimes characterised as “letting sleeping dogs lie”—whereby both sides refrain from firing or using their weapons, or deliberately discharge them in a ritualistic or routine way that signals their non-lethal intent.

Live and Let Live: – A form of the Golden Rule

When we live and let live, we don’t need to criticize, judge, or condemn others. We have no need to control them or try and make them conform to our way of thinking. We let others live their own lives and we live ours.

This simple slogan helps center us on our own recovery and on living our own life in the best way we know how. Live and let live is one of the keys to peace in our lives. When we practice tolerance in our lives we are liberated to work on our own issues. When we use this slogan we end many of the conflicts in our lives and gain the ability to stop new ones before they build into big ones.

Benefits with friends: –

Having good friends and a close family may prolong life, according to an analysis of 148 studies that focused on relationships. The studies assessed the strength of a person’s social ties by looking at factors including marital status, household size, participation in group activities, number of social contacts, and self-reported levels of support or isolation. Overall participants (average age 64) with strong social ties increased their odds of survival by 50%, over an average age 7 1⁄2 year period, compared with those who were more isolated. The authors found that healthy social relations are as good for you as quitting smoking and better for you than exercising or loosing weight. Of course doing all those health-promoting things while friends and families support you would be better still.

FINAL FAITH OR BELIEF

FINAL FAITH OR BELIEF: –
Psychologists often carve thinking into two broad categories: intuitive thinking, which is fast and effortless (instantly knowing whether someone is angry or sad from the look on her face, for example); and analytic thinking, which is slower and more deliberate (and used for solving math problems and other tricky tasks). Both kinds of thinking have their strengths and weaknesses, and they often seem to interfere with one another. Recently there’s been an emerging consensus among researchers that a lot of religious beliefs are grounded in intuitive processes.

To Gervais and Norenzayan, the findings suggest that intuitive thinking, likely along with other cognitive and cultural factors, is a key ingredient in religious belief. Through some combination of culture and biology, our minds are intuitively receptive to religion. If you’re going to be unreligious, it’s likely going to be due to reflecting on it and finding some things that are hard to believe. “In some ways this confirms what many people, both religious and non- religious, have said about religious belief for a long time, that it’s more of a feeling than a thought,” says Nicholas Epley, a psychologist at the University of Chicago. But he predicts the findings won’t change anyone’s mind about whether God exists or whether religious belief is rational. “If you think that reasoning analytically is the way to go about understanding the world accurately, you might see this as evidence that being religious doesn’t make much sense,” he says. “If you’re a religious person, I think you take this evidence as showing that God has given you a system for belief that just reveals itself to you as common sense.”

Make a Difference: –

“We can all make a difference…. What is required is that we have faith in GOD that everything that is happening in our life is for our highest good. As we live in that positive mode, we are able to bring happiness and joy into any atmosphere.”

There is part of you that is perfect and pure. It is untouched by the less than perfect characteristics you’ve acquired by living in a less than perfect world. It is filled with divine qualities, so is a constant state of resourcefulness and wellbeing. Its total absence of conflict and negativity of any sort makes this part of you a Still-Point; a deep, enriching experience of Silence.

Make time to practice reaching this inner place of Silence. It will bring you untold benefit.

Belief Power: –

So why do you have so many beliefs? And why is the world not becoming a better place with so many believers? To answer this question, we need to go back to the moment of ‘truth’ which was lost to our awareness…some time ago. Beliefs are only present because we have lost our connection with the eternal truths, and our awareness of those truths. For example, while you believe you are what you see in the bathroom mirror in the morning, it is not the truth of who you really are. You are not your physical form – you are simply spirit, or that which animates the form. The experience (not the belief) of this truth liberates you from the fear of ageing and decay. Spirit (self) does not grow old and does not die. But then, you must not believe me (or disbelieve me). When you experience, there is no longer a need to believe, because now you know…THE TRUTH. This is why belief is not the truth and why truth is more powerful than belief, and why belief and truth are never found in bed together. So what is the truth? Are you a physical being having the occasional spiritual experience, or are you a spiritual being had a physical experience. If you say both that’s called avoidance!
