Decision-Making Power

the_power_to_Discern

Living in demanding and fast paced times, we are often faced with having to make snap decisions.

Under such pressures, how do I know if I am making the right decisions?

When I constantly practice the art of being a detached observer, stepping aside from my own needs and wants, rising above influences of learnt behaviours, acquired beliefs and distorted perceptions, the decision-making process becomes natural and easy. Because as a detached observer, my decision-making is powered by the foundation of truth and pure-intent.

Allowing my decisions to be based on truth and purity, I will remain free from any worries of what the outcome maybe… I simply ensure I respond from the right space.

Om Shanti

Real Confidence

cloud9

When we are skilled in a task or have the knowledge to do something then there is confidence. However as soon as we are exposed to a new challenge or there is a risk of not achieving success then our confidence begins to shake. We become hesitant based on subtle fears and doubts that enter the equation.

Real confidence however is a virtue and lies much deeper within the self. It is the ability to face the challenge knowing that we will be able to remain stable irrespective of the outcome.

When facing challenges we may experience some anxiety initially, however when I have confidence based on the right understanding, I am able to face the situation without being afraid of the result whether it is one of success of otherwise.

Let me be ready to face the challenge. Let me nurture the virtue of confidence.

Deep, Deeper, Deeper Still

consciousness

Taking time out for ourselves just to sit quietly has become a luxury many of us cannot afford these days. There is just no time, we argue. A never ending ‘to do’ list.

It might be surprising however to find that it is when I give time to connect with my innermost self, that I will be able to ‘generate’ more time.

By diving deep into my inner world, I move away from the surface of my mind where I am subject to the turbulent effects of external influences. In the depths of the self I am the captain of my mind. In the still waters within I am reconciled with my own peace and stillness. My thoughts slow down. There is a sense of calm and clarity.

As I re-surface from the depths within, I sense a change in the nature of my thoughts ….fewer in quantity but greater in quality. With few but powerful thoughts my capacity for handling tasks and responsibilities has grown manifold.

Invest in ‘quiet time’ regularly and reap the reward……fewer thoughts, powerful thoughts.

 

Om Shanti

How Lucky do I feel?

The_secret

I cannot change the cards I am dealt with in life, but how I play them is totally in my hands.

In good times I feel luck is on my side, and in not so good times, it is easy to blame the poor cards.

But if I take courage and choose to remain positive, I may just surprise myself to find that it is exactly during the ‘not so good times’ that new opportunities present themselves. Take the opportunity and undoubtedly I am on my way to tap into unhidden potential that lies dormant within me.

Lucky are those who choose to look beyond and seize the opportunities that arise in times of adversity.

 

Om Shanti

Power of Thoughts

devil_workshop

Thoughts are the seeds of all creation.

Everything begins with the quality of our thoughts. Mankind’s achievement of walking on the moon to our ability to overcome personal challenges such as an emotional trauma all begin with our thoughts.

Nurtured and nourished wisely, thoughts grow to become the foundation to sustain that which has been created until the seed grows into a tree…more trees flourish and before we know it we have created a beautiful forest and much more..

If we can start to understand the power of thoughts, surely we will be very careful to create thoughts that will be of benefit to me and those around me and gently discard and discourage harmful wasteful thoughts.

The secret lies in discovering the Power of Thoughts.

Om Shanti
