With ego, you lash out when someone insults, disagrees or criticises you. Without ego, you’re able to accept your flaws without compromising your self worth.
Every day is an opportunity to be creative – the canvas is your mind, the brushes and colours are your thoughts and feelings, the panorama is your story, the complete picture is a work of art called, ‘my life’. Be careful what you put on the canvas of your mind today – it matters.
Why have we forgotten how to dream? With our innocence gone, and the entertainment industry doing all the work for us, we quickly lose our capacity to dream possible futures. Stop. Close your eyes. And dream again. Put the stars in your dreams. And then reach for them. No need to struggle. Simply nurture the dream, sustain the vision, and watch it come true. It must, it’s the law.
Patience is your willingness to let time and life move forward at their own pace, without losing sight of your destination. When there’s no rush, no hurry, out goes anxiety, in comes peace of mind.
Learn how to keep your mind peaceful by feeding good thoughts to your mind. Let your mind rest.. let it be restful… not restless. Remember: my mind is my own. I mustn’t let my mind cause me distress. I cannot slap my mind (suppress the mind) – I have to give it love. By giving your own mind love you will make it peaceful.
Waking up energised and excited about tackling challenges is a sign that you have the ‘fun factor’ in your life. When you’re having ‘fun’, you’re curious enough to actively explore life. And then, nothing is impossible or off limits.
The one who possesses cheerfulness becomes like a magnet of goodwill.
When I become excessively critical towards others, it means I am going in the wrong direction. We are usually very good at spotting mistakes, but we should develop the quality of also spotting goodness. If I can see what is good in others or in situations and go beyond the curtain of negativity, I feel good about myself. If I constantly think “he is wrong”, I instead create a barrier which blocks me from reaching my own goodness.
Sometimes we just have to be wise enough to go with the flow. We have to put our trust in life and let the current carry us. That doesn’t mean we should take our focus off where we’re going.
Illusion is the idea that people should be, and do, what we want them to. The truth is, all is as it should be, despite appearances or our perceptions of others to the contrary.
You already have the courage to “Face, Explore, Accept and Respond” to fear. All you have to do is move beyond inertia and discover your true potential. Then, courage will enable you take action in spite of fear.
Learn to go beyond words into silence, sit with your innermost self and experience the nourishing, timeless beauty of peace.
"Neither prejudiced by the past, nor in fear of the future. The moment, only the moment"
