The Value behind Reaction

2015-04-20_0810_001There are often reactions that happen within situations – either I react or others react. The situation then becomes a confrontation.

When a value or belief that someone holds is challenged then they can react. Reaction is a way of defending and upholding the underlying value that is being challenged.

It is actually not a question of what is right or wrong and therefore the way to resolve it is also to go beyond trying to prove its correctness or not. The way to resolve reaction is to foster respect for what they value and then respond accordingly.
After all, no matter the situation, it is not my place to undermine someone else’s belief/value.

Reaction happens for a reason and if I am able to understand and give respect to the underlying belief/value that they wish to uphold then the reaction will easily dissolve.

 

Om Shanti

The Heart Trap

Head_and_Heart

We make so many decisions each day, consciously and subconsciously. Those decisions then become the basis of the words and actions that follow.

Sometimes decisions are clear and obvious and at other times illogical and even crazy! What is the basis of the decisions we make? What influences our decisions?

Whatever is in the heart will influence the thoughts that arise in the mind and then that will direct the intellect in making its decisions. Whatever is in our hearts is reflected in our thinking and then manifests in our words and actions.

When the heart is holding onto bad feelings and negative experiences, by seeing and realising it, there is an opportunity to release ourselves from that influence. That then frees us from so many other potential traps that can be generated from the feelings in the heart.

Take a moment to open the door of the heart and see what is really going on.

 

Om Shanti

The Gift of Silence

the_root_of_peacelessness

When we are born into this world we are given the gift of life. Our senses awaken to allow us to experience life to the fullest possible.

We use our physical senses – the eyes and the ears, our nose and mouth to experience and interact with life itself…Wow! such an amazing gift!

But the greatest gift that we receive in this life is the ability to step back, from all that we know as life, detach from those invaluable senses that bring sound and colour into life, and step into silence.

We are not aware when the sound and colour moves into noise and pollution and in that ignorance we also become polluted with the same. Then we lose our happiness and contentment.

Take time to switch off the senses and step into the silence that awaits you within. The sacred still space of power and realisation.

Become aware of the greatest gift of life … the invisible, soundless silence of the soul.

 

Om Shanti
