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

Digesting Criticism

Digest_critisium

Do I find myself reacting and getting defensive when criticism comes my way? Or do I have the ability to stop, listen and learn?

Criticism is about highlighting faults. When criticism is directed towards me it can be very difficult to digest. The moment I react and thus internally reject what is being suggested to me, I stop the process of learning and growth.
It is not that everything that is being thrown at me is necessarily true. It may be only an opinion of one or two. However if I am able to stay calm and collected enough to hear what is being said, then it is my choice to discern what is correct or not.

To digest criticism I need the ability to listen, discern and learn from others. It is a doorway to change and growth.

Can you digest criticism?

Om Shanti
