Courage to Hold Silence

bodyconsciousness

Within silence I become present and mindful. In that moment there is complete clarity and awareness.

Silence of words is important but the experience of silence within my thoughts and feelings is profound.

I wish to reach, and then remain, in this state where silence works like an engine for everything else to follow. And for this it is necessary to give priority to silencing my own inner world – that is my mind and my intellect.

As it stands my mind is constantly generating thoughts consciously and subconsciously. My intellect is using its understanding and learnt cleverness to decide, discern and judge what I should do, how and when.

When I renounce the need to hold and process information in my mind I will allow silence to take priority. Then I will cultivate a vibration of internal silence as a priority in my life.

The power of this silence will enable answers to emerge without the influence of my own thoughts and feeling – Imagine that!

Do I have the courage to hold onto my inner silence no matter what?

 

Om Shanti

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

Decision-Making Power

the_power_to_Discern

Living in demanding and fast paced times, we are often faced with having to make snap decisions.

Under such pressures, how do I know if I am making the right decisions?

When I constantly practice the art of being a detached observer, stepping aside from my own needs and wants, rising above influences of learnt behaviours, acquired beliefs and distorted perceptions, the decision-making process becomes natural and easy. Because as a detached observer, my decision-making is powered by the foundation of truth and pure-intent.

Allowing my decisions to be based on truth and purity, I will remain free from any worries of what the outcome maybe… I simply ensure I respond from the right space.

Om Shanti

Mirror of the Mind

qualified_mind

My mind is a mirror – whatever is in the mind is reflected in my life and becomes my truth

I cannot ignore the mind nor is it possible to run away from it.

Within the mind I create thoughts. These thoughts are seeds that I plant which then grow over time. The seeds become the fruits and flowers of tomorrow. They can also become the weeds and thorns!
My mind holds the key to my future – for a bright future or a sad one.

If I hold sadness and bitterness in my thoughts, If I hold sorrow then that is what will be reflected in my life – that is what I will experience tomorrow.

Do I have the courage to change the thoughts that I hold in my mind?
Do I even want to create beautiful thoughts, positive thoughts, or do I want to hold onto that which is sad and bitter and now even old?

Whatever is going on inside my mind – I need to see it and realise it – and then decide ‘Do I want to change it?’

 

Om Shanti

Forgive and Forget

past

Often when we are hurt by people, especially those close to us, it becomes very difficult to forgive, move on and re-nurture trust.

With everything we do, say or even think, we are laying the building blocks for the future. When a hurtful scene occurs and we hold onto that scene and the pain – when we don’t forgive – then that becomes the foundation for our future too.

It is as if we reap a harvest that is diseased and keep the seeds to plant out again. Planting seeds that are infected will only result in another infected harvest.

Something painful that happened in the past exists in the past. If we decide to keep it safe and cultivate it again and again in the future then it will stay with us. In fact it will multiply, grow and influence other areas of our lives too. It is not about the person or situation that hurt me in the past but it is about the future I want for myself.

What is required is the courage to let go, to forgive and forget. We need to burn those infected seeds and have the courage to start again with fresh, healthy seeds.

Do I have the courage to forgive and forget?

Om Shanti
