Stop and Observe

stop

In a fast moving world that operates on the basis of actions and reactions, is it possible for me to step back and observe?

My automatic reaction to life’s dramas seem to be controlled by a force that I am not directly managing. And then these reactions become the basis of my tomorrow.

In the face of situations let me see if I can apply a brake. To stop and not engage at any level – whether it be my thoughts, words, actions or even feelings.

If I am able to stop then I can become the observer of the scene – Who is doing what and why?

If I can step back even further then I become the observer of the self and my behaviour within the scene. What am I thinking and feeling about the scene and what are the needs and desires which are fuelling that?

Developing the ability to ‘Stop’ will allow me to begin to understand the things that control me from a very deep space within the soul. I begin to reveal myself to myself and in doing so I am able to become free.

 

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 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
