The Critical ‘I’

The nature of being critical makes us harbour negative thoughts and feelings inside. Being critical has deep within it the dis-ability to appreciate.

Criticism is based on that which I see with my eyes and the habit of seeing fault. The moment criticism starts we take that which is outside, inside. Then the negative and critical thoughts generated create equivalent feelings and attitude within the self.

Criticism starts with the self and ends with the self – subtly, I myself will be harmed the most by it. Slowly but surely, criticism will drain all the positive and light energy that naturally sits within the self. This will then not allow me to remain happy, satisfied, detached or free.

Develop the ability to see and appreciate; to see and then simply move on.

Save the self from developing the habit of the the critical eye because the critical eye creates the critical ‘I’.

 

Om Shanti

Bank Balance of Life

What is in your bank balance of life?

With each thought, word and action we express each day, we make a deposit into our bank balance of life. It is actually a question of karma. Karma means action, and the philosophy of karma is that ‘what goes around comes around’.

The scenes and situations that present themselves to us in life are not random; they happen as a result of karma. We value the beautiful and happy moments and prefer to avoid the stressful and sad ones. However, the law of karma states that we always get the return of the karma we deposit.

When our actions are charitable, when they give happiness, we deposit positive karma in our account. These actions, which include our thoughts and words, are a result of expressing virtues.  Conversely, we cause sorrow or pain as a result of our vices. Then we deposit negative karma in our account.

If we wish to have a good return then we must also deposit the same.

So what is your bank balance of life?
