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

Wisdom of Silence

introversion

Deep within our consciousness each one of us holds an awareness of truth and innate wisdom. The soul is eternal, it has always existed and so why should it not be all knowing?

When I am silent and still, the power from that silence sharpens my inner capacity and ability to understand. The silent state allows the habit of continuous thinking and analysing to subside and enables the soul to express its eternal wisdom. This is a very natural experience as though the capacity to know with clarity and far-sightedness is already part of my psyche.

From that inner space of stillness, inspiration emerges. Inspiration which comes from a pure and detached place of eternal wisdom. It unfolds itself, in front of me, without any justification and I merely observe, knowing undoubtingly that this is the truth.

Beyond my capacity of clever thinking and intellectual analysis, the power of silence, reveals wisdom from deep within the all knowing self.

Om Shanti

Spiritual Centering

being_centred

My spiritual centre point is the inner space from where I experience my natural state of existence – a space of peace, love, joy, truth and strength.

In order to drive a car, we engage the gears and when we come to a stop, we need to disengage them and return to neutral. Similarly every time we think, speak or act, we are engaging. Sometimes we are able to move along in lower gears…..not moving too far away from our centre. However at times our ‘car’ goes into overdrive, moving way beyond its capacity – maybe even reach breaking point and we experience many stress related feelings and emotions.

A simple practice of taking a minute of each hour to return to the centre will protect me from wavering too far from my centre. Also the power I will have accumulated over time from the hourly practice of centering will allow me to navigate back to the centre quickly and effortlessly.

Take time out to dis-engage and re-charge.

 

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

Power of Thoughts

devil_workshop

Thoughts are the seeds of all creation.

Everything begins with the quality of our thoughts. Mankind’s achievement of walking on the moon to our ability to overcome personal challenges such as an emotional trauma all begin with our thoughts.

Nurtured and nourished wisely, thoughts grow to become the foundation to sustain that which has been created until the seed grows into a tree…more trees flourish and before we know it we have created a beautiful forest and much more..

If we can start to understand the power of thoughts, surely we will be very careful to create thoughts that will be of benefit to me and those around me and gently discard and discourage harmful wasteful thoughts.

The secret lies in discovering the Power of Thoughts.

Om Shanti

Who’s Holding My Power?

fear_thoughts

Within the self I have the capacity to generate both positive and negative energy. When I use my spiritual power to access the positive then I will remain stable, happy and content. I consciously activate my power of choice and therefore have control over what I experience.

When I allow external circumstances to trigger emotions such as irritation, upset, anger or worse, then I am using and empowering the negative energy in me. And negative energy will always cause me sorrow.

In any situation I can chose to start from an inner space of positivity and then respond. Alternatively I can react to whatever is happening outside of me. I can decide to use my positive energy or allow circumstances to hold my power. The choice is always mine.

Take time to develop the habit of working from the inside out. Hold onto your power!

Tolerance for Life

tolerance

We may not realise it but we take power, comfort and happiness from thing being the way we want them to be. When they are not, then the ‘need’ for them to be our way, challenges us to react to make them ‘right’ again.

Tolerance is to allow things to take their course without the need to control or change them. It is about accepting the differences we see.

The power of tolerance allows us to break the strings of these ‘needs’. It allows us to let it go and frees us from such dependencies.

We don’t need to suppress our own feelings but tolerance allows us to see from a wider perceptive and in doing so, it allows us to understand and accept it.

It may appear that we are weak when we tolerate, but actually weakness lies in the inability to tolerate.

Tolerance is the greatest of all powers. Let’s use it in action and thus develop it in our life.

 

Om Shanti

The Control Factor

give_and_take

We all want the best for ourselves and as a result we work hard to make things happen. With determination we can achieve anything.

There is however a difference between the virtue of determination and that of needing to have control over things in order to achieve success.

We often face challenges in achieving our goals. The power of determination will allow us to adjust and adapt to challenges whilst keeping the goal in mind.

Control on the other hand will not allow flexibility and thus will breed fear of not achieving. As a result it will give rise to stress, tension and anger. We will try and control things and make things happen in the way they ‘should be’ and thus try and force things in an ‘un-natural’ way.

No matter how much force we use to control people and circumstances, there is never a guarantee of results. And a forced victory, received at the cost of much hurt and stress, is a bitter fruit.

Learn to hold determination and let go of the need to control.

 

Om Shanti

Spiritual Power

Spiritual_power

‘Power’ can be seen as physical strength, as mental or emotional control over others or as a unique capacity to think differently, be different.

Spiritual power, on the other hand, is subtle and so not easily visible to the eyes. It is an inner strength that enables me to protect my own inner personality. It is something that is felt and experienced rather than expressed and seen.

The ability to develop one’s own spiritual power begins in the battlefield of life.
It has become a habit to use the negative qualities of my own weakness and vices to fight the challenges in life – they have enabled me to win the outer, physical battles.

But spiritual power, which is internal, can be developed with the ability of the self to choose and use a virtue rather than a weakness or a vice in the face of challenge.

Using a virtue, over time makes it into a power. If I decide not to use my virtues then, over time, I will lose my spiritual power, my spiritual authority

Always choose to take the high path of virtue. Even if it means an apparent loss, it will make me a greater human being and it will free me from being a slave to circumstances.

 

Om Shanti

Is that Knowledge or Wisdom?

Kow_wisdom

We live in an information society. Whatever information is needed can be obtained with the press of a button.

With all this information we are able to gain so much knowledge on almost any subject. Information or knowledge is seen as a sign of power. One who knows is a master and can thus lead and control – direct and even mis-direct.

But when does knowledge become wisdom?

When we contemplate knowledge, then apply and integrate it in our lives: our awareness, attitude and actions. When it is used in relation to the wider truths of life, it is then that it becomes wisdom. Knowledge on its own may be useful and give temporary gain, but it is only wisdom that transforms knowledge into power – spiritual power

Wisdom is the power of experience that gives internal stability. It is the deepest ‘knowing’, based on experience, which then allows one to be internally free.

Am I wise?

 

Om Shanti
