Why Hurt?

mistakes

Someone said something, someone did, or did not, do something and I am hurt by that. No matter how much I wish to stay in a positive and happy place, it seems as though others influence and change that. They continue to hurt me and cause me pain and sorrow.

However the fact is that I have no control over anything or anyone except myself. When I deeply and practically learn to accept this in my life then I will realise that no one can ever hurt me. People can behave as they wish to but it is what I do with someone’s negative behaviour – the shape and power I give that negativity inside my mind – that will decide if it causes me to hurt or not.

It is not an easy lesson to accept but the reality is that how I choose to respond is entirely in my hands. .

Let me empower the self by applying this lesson practically in my life from this moment onwards. Let me chose to remain happy.

 

Om Shanti

Seed of Thought

2015-04-20_0807_001

We often describe thoughts as seeds because from one thought many more thoughts are generated. These thoughts go on to determine our words and actions.

If we step back and observe these thoughts, then we start to understand that the thoughts we are generating are our creation. So then the question that arises is ‘What is the seed behind my thoughts?’ ‘What is it within the self that initiates the thought in the first place?’

The seeds that create thoughts are the desires that we hold within our hearts. The ‘wants’ and ‘needs’ we have.

When we look closely within we will find that behind much of our thinking are feelings. When we are in touch with those feelings we will discover our ‘needs’ and ‘wants’ – the ‘desires’ that are the seeds behind those thoughts.

There are the physical needs for sure but even more powerful are the subtle needs of love, respect, power, authority, popularity, belonging and so forth. These then become the foundation from which thoughts are born and actions created. To varying degrees we all experience, at some time, fear, worry, anxiety. All these are born through desire!

What type of desires should I have to ensure the thoughts and feelings that emerge are positive and benevolent?

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

Who’s Holding My Power?

fear_thoughts

Within the self I have the capacity to generate both positive and negative energy. When I use my spiritual power to access the positive then I will remain stable, happy and content. I consciously activate my power of choice and therefore have control over what I experience.

When I allow external circumstances to trigger emotions such as irritation, upset, anger or worse, then I am using and empowering the negative energy in me. And negative energy will always cause me sorrow.

In any situation I can chose to start from an inner space of positivity and then respond. Alternatively I can react to whatever is happening outside of me. I can decide to use my positive energy or allow circumstances to hold my power. The choice is always mine.

Take time to develop the habit of working from the inside out. Hold onto your power!

 

Om Shanti

Quality Thinking

quality_thoughts

We have heard so much about the quality of our thinking and how much of an impact that it has on the quality of our life. We know about positive and negative thinking but how do we catch the quality of our thinking while in action.

Opinionated thinking is not good quality thinking as it has a fixed based. It is positional thinking which is ego based.

Limited thinking is connected to the influence and indulgence of our senses, with limited experiences. It has a deep connection with the way we relate to our body.

Good quality thinking is very fluid energy, very flexible and detached. It offers an insight into a situation without being opinionated or critical.

Check: What is the quality of my thinking?

The Devil’s Workshop

devil_workshop

‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’

I have heard this saying many times and yet how often am I aware of what is going on in my mind?

Actions are the result of the thoughts. If the mind remains occupied in positive and constructive thoughts, then I will certainly experience that in terms of positivity in my attitude, feeling, words and actions.

It needs constant attention and control of the mind to ensure that I don’t let the devil in. When there is nothing specific to think about, or I become lazy about cultivating good thoughts, then, like an unattended garden, the mind will become full of weeds. These weeds, over time, will outgrow any flowers that may wish to grow and the beauty and joy of the garden will be lost.

I must remain occupied checking the thoughts being created in the mind as these are the seeds that will result in the fruit of my experiences in life tomorrow.

Check, am I consciously planting healthy and positive seeds in my mind or am I allowing the devil to plant his seeds.

Om Shanti
