A Positive Mind

quality_thoughts

I choose to slow down and focus in on the thoughts that my mind is generating.

I become the observer and the analyst.

I take a conscious decision to not give energy to thoughts that are wasteful or negative. Whether I choose to see the thoughts themselves as right or wrong, whether they are justified or not, is not as important as acknowledging the ill feelings, discomfort that they bring about within the self and others.

No matter how comfortable I may experience these thoughts to be, I recognise that, for example, thoughts of a critical, judgemental or presumptive nature are like drops of poison that will seek and destroy all that is positive within me instantly or gradually – depending on the strength of the wasteful or negative thoughts. What is certain is that these types of thoughts will be destructive and will go on to finish my enthusiasm and close the door to opportunities.

Let me choose to develop the habit of consciously having positive and powerful thoughts.

 

Om Shanti

Peace, Silence and Power

mahabharat

Peace of mind begins when there is no waste or negativity within my thinking. It is then that the incognito battle within the mind stops. Thoughts slow down and become few and I experience peace within my mind.

If I allow anything to come and disturb this state of thinking then I myself am responsible for the peacelessness that arises. Peace or peacelessness are a state of mind. Peace cannot be kept by force, it can only be achieved through understanding.

From peace I consciously take a step into silence. I connect with the feelings and vibrations around me and within me. This opens the door to experience the subtlety of my authentic self.

Within the experience of self, the power of spirit emerges. A spiritual strength which gives a sense of contentment and completeness. Of having reached my destination.

 

Om Shanti

I am!

sanskars

Originally and eternally my nature, my personality has always been one of virtues and qualities.

I, the soul, am born into a body and through that I perform actions. I play my various roles through this body as I act and interact with other souls and with matter.

As I do this a natural mechanism comes into play – An action that is repeated many times becomes a habit and when a habit is repeated of a long period of time it becomes a personality trait. Over time I also accumulate many experiences and memories that influence me in the actions I chose to do.
This process, that is at play, has made me who I am – the person I know and see and believe to be me.

This personality of ‘mine’ – the one that I have become – has weaknesses, expresses vices and generates so many waste thoughts and feelings. It causes sorrow to the self and others because of the direct influence this personality has on my behaviour.

However, originally and eternally this is not me, not really. Neither am I the body, nor the roles and thus I am also not the personality I believe myself to be.

Step away from the false belief and chose to be who you really are.

 

Om Shanti

Silent Witness

silent_witness

At the very core of my being, in the innermost space, there is a place of total silence. To reach this space and to sit and experience it is the most profound experience.

Within this space I become the silent witness without any needs or pulls or duties.
Watching every scene without question. Deeply accepting the secrets of the drama being revealed slowly in my presence.

Internally there is so much stability that it is a stage of being free from waste. A stage of seeing everything, being a part of everything yet absorbing nothing. It is a strange but very liberating state of being.

In silence I can see reality as it is, without influence – nothing added and nothing taken away.

I am here watching this character play the role that has been given, but I am not the character or the role. I am the the silent witness within, the eternal and immortal soul.

Who’s that talking?

 

inner_volumnHave you ever noticed that voice that is constantly chattering in your mind?

Who is it, and who is it talking to?
If it is my own inner voice then why is it telling me things I already know?

It is a constant flow of information and advice which changes with time and circumstance. The more I listen the more confused I can become. And sometimes the chatter does not even allow me to sleep at night.

It is the voice of my likes and dislikes based on my past experiences and future expectations.

If I stop listening and giving it importance, then the voice will slowly become silent and free the mind of waste, regrets and desires.

Have I got the courage to turn down the volume of that inner voice and free myself?

 

Om Shanti

Take a Break, Have Faith

fear_thoughts
In life situations often happen that we are not happy with. They generate a millions thoughts within the mind about the situation and everything related to it. It is actually like a self protective mechanism that kicks in. Subconsciously we believe that if we think through all the possible permutations, causes and solutions then we will find the answer and be able to deal with the situation.

The reason for this internal reaction is a subtle fear of the unknown. The excessive thinking becomes a means to make the unknown, known and thus be prepared for it. However these waste thoughts that are generated only add to the uncertainty, confusion and thus the ‘fear’ within.

Take a break from the internal fight to ensure things are the way you want them to be all the time. Have the faith that whatever happens you will be able to deal with it, and you will!

Om Shanti
