    There are 3 types of souls:

    1) Those who create obstacles
    2) Those who become afraid of obstacles
    3) Those who destroy obstacles

    Let no aspect of anyone's nature disturb or affect you - and vice versa.
    Make sure no part of your nature affects others.
    See everyone's virtues and you will soon stop seeing defects.

    Be Happy, Be positive and Be Strong!

    HAVE FAITH, PATIENCE & PERSEVERANCE !!!

    If you are sad n in pain, Be as the ocean, and release. The ocean tides don't pause and hold in anything, they ebb...and then they flow. Only briefly holding on top of a wave for a moment. If something from your past bubbles up, simply take a deep breath, and let it go. More love!

    हमारा किसी भी व्यक्ति से कोई भी रिश्ता हो पर जिसे हमारा मन एक बार अपना मान लेता है,
    फिर हमें उस व्यक्ति में कोई कमी दिखाई नही देती... उसके सारे अवगुण भी हमें गुणों जैसे
    लगने लगते है... परन्तु जब कोई हमारा अपना किसी स्वार्थ के चलते पराया हो जाता है, तो हमें
    उसमें कमीयां ही कमीयां दिखाई देने लगती है...पर कभी तो बात एकदम छोटी सी होती है गलती
    किसी की नहीं होती और ग़लतफ़हमी वश दूरी हो जाती है ..और हम उसे पराया मान खुद को उससे
    बहुत दूर कर लेते है ...इस वक्त हमारा अहम् या आगे वाले का अहम् बात फिर से सुरु करने ही नहीं देता ...
    पर वो हमारा अपना है ..हमने जिन्दगी की सुखद पल उसके साथ बिताए है ..तो वह बार बार याद आता है ..
    एक कमी सी रह जाती है जीवन में . मन बहुत दुखी होता है, हर आहट पर उनका लौट कर आने का
    इंतजार रहता है…

    जिसे हम अपना मानते है, हमें उससे यह उम्मीद होती है कि वो हमारे हर सुख-दुख में सदा
    हमारें साथ रहेगा । लेकिन मुसीबत में वो साथ दे नहीं पाता तो हमें बुरा लगता है और फिर इसी
    बातको जीवन भर हम याद रखते है, लेकिन जो कुछ हम किसी के साथ करते है उसे अपने मन के
    आईने में देखने से कतराते है। सारी दुनियां से चाहें हम कुछ भी छिपा ले, लेकिन हमारा मन एक
    ऐसा दर्पण है, जिससे कोई बात नही छुपती। हमारे हर अच्छे बुरे कर्म को हमारा मन हर समय देखता
    रहता है। दूसरों को बुरा भला कहना और उनमें कमियां निकालने से पहले जरूरत होती है तो केवल अपने
    मन की आंखे खोलने की और जब आँख खुल जाती है तो फिर उनकी मजबूरी भी समझमे आने लग जाती है।
    पर कभी कभी समय चला जाता है और अपनों के बीच दूरिया इतनी बढ़ जाती है कि फिर कभी दिल मिल ही
    नहीं पाते तो कितना अच्छा हो दूसरो के प्रति कोई राय बनाने से पहले उसकी जगह खुद को रख कर देखो
    फिर कभी ये दूरी आ ही नहीं सकती।|

    5 Secrets to Happiness

    Once a wise man drew a line on a board and told his student to make the
    line shorter without touching or erasing it. How would you do it?

    You have to shorten a line without touching it. The intelligent one
    (referring to the student) then drew a much longer line underneath
    that line. So, the line automatically became shorter.

    The lesson here is that if your difficulties appear to be very big,
    lift your eyes because you are only focused on yourself. If you lift
    your eyes up and look at those who are in a worse condition than you,
    you will suddenly feel that your burden is not as bad as you thought it was.

    If you think you have some big problem, look at people who have a greater
    problem. Suddenly, you will get a confidence that my problem is much smaller,
    and I can manage it.

    So, the first point on how to be happy is to see the world where there
    are greater and bigger problems. Then, your problems will appear smaller.

    The moment your problems appear smaller, you will get the energy and
    confidence to deal with it or solve it. In simple words, serve those
    who are in greater need.

    Second, look at your own life. In the past, you had many problems.
    They have all come and gone. Know that even this will go and you do
    have the energy and power to overcome it. You will get self-confidence
    by understanding and looking at your own past.

    Third, and most important, do some breathing exercise and relaxation.

    Fourth, do you know, in anger we say, ‘I give up’. Without frustration
    or anger say, ‘I give this problem up, I cannot solve it, let the Divine help me.
    ’ And know that you will always be helped. Have the confidence that you
    will be helped; a power in the universe is going to help you.

    The fifth one – what do you think is the fifth one? I leave it to you.
    You think about the fifth one. I can go on up to twenty-five or thirty (points),
    but I would like you to come up with it. We are always looking for solutions
    from someone. We forget that if we turn our mind inward, we can get some
    idea, some solution. This is the fifth one. Spontaneity! Be spontaneous. Spontaneity
    will come when you take a few minutes to go deep within yourself. There is nothing
    great in smiling when everything is normal, and when everything is going the way
    you want. But if you awaken the valor inside of you, and say, ‘Come what may,
    I am going to keep smiling’, you will notice tremendous energy, just rise from
    within you. And the problem is like nothing; it just comes and disappears.

  • OM SAI RAM!!!

    A fool is one who goes on trusting; a fool is one who goes on trusting
    against all his experience. You deceive him, and he trusts you;
    and you deceive him again, and he trusts you; and you deceive him again,
    and he trusts you. Then you will say that he is a fool, he does not learn.
    His trust is tremendous; his trust is so pure that nobody can corrupt it.

    Be a fool in the Taoist sense, in the Zen sense. Don´t try to create a
    wall of knowledge around you. Whatsoever experience comes to you,
    let it happen, and then go on dropping it. Go on cleaning your mind
    continuously; go on dying to the past so you remain in the present,
    herenow, as if just born, just a babe.

    In the beginning it is going to be very difficult. The world will start taking
    advantage of you...let them. They are poor fellows. Even if you are cheated
    and deceived and robbed, let it happen, because that which is really
    yours cannot be robbed from you, that which is really yours nobody
    can steal from you.

    And each time you don´t allow situations to corrupt you, that opportunity
    will become an integration inside. Your soul will become more crystallized.

    Be Happy, Be positive and Be Strong!

    HAVE FAITH, PATIENCE & PERSEVERANCE !!!

    "Anger is always a sign of weakness.
    Just plainly and simply put the whole thing;
    perhaps the other person may find that
    you are right and may be thankful to you.
    Or perhaps the other person may have better reasons than you;
    then you will be thankful to the other person
    because he helps to raise your consciousness"

    Be CLEAR on your intent. What do you intend to do with your life?
    To grow? To be loving? To be joyful? To serve; to heal?
    The higher your level of clarity around this, the more that
    clear energy will flow out into every area of your life.
    Your life purpose is the most important thing you can get clear on.
    Clarity of purpose will direct clear energy into every other area of your life.
    You may say, “What is life purpose, in essence?” It is the deepest desires
    within you, that which gives you the most joy, that which you think of
    and fantasize about all the time. It is that deep soul-level urge,
    that motivation; it is the dream that you hold within you.

    Mistakes have caused pain and that is good.
    Pain has given you depth and that is good.
    You have learnt from the mistakes and
    now you don't want to commit the same mistakes again.
    That is also good.
    So it is useless to sit and worry about the past.
    Just move on!
    Every moment there is sparkling, scintillating energy within you,
    so move with that!

    To surrender to love n affection, you will need to pay attention to any of
    your own emotions, moods, or thoughts that might lead you to act in
    less than loving ways. You may need to surrender pride, a sense of
    self-importance, the need to have your way, to feel superior to, or
    to have power over others. You will want to let go of those emotions
     that make you feel less than, inferior, or doubtful of your worth.
    You will want to train yourself to think about others in positive ways,
    even if you feel they have hurt you. You will want to bring about
    harmonious conditions through your speech, actions, and thoughts.

    What if every time you found fault with others, or thought of something
    they could do better you asked instead, "How does my criticism of other
    people apply to me?" Even if you think there is no way your observations
    of others apply to you or your life, be willing to explore how they might.
    Think of the other person as representing an aspect of yourself.
    Ask, "Is there anywhere I am doing what I am criticizing the other person for?"
    Examine your life carefully. The essence of what you criticize another for is
    usually a quality you are working on developing in yourself.

    You feel a lot of love for someone and they do not take it.

    What do you do?

    -   Get Frustrated
    -   Turn the love into hatred and wish for revenge.
    -   Again and again remind them how much you love them and how little they love you.
    -   Become fussy and cranky
    -   Throw tantrums
    -   Feel humiliated and try to protect your respect.
    -   Resolve never to love again.
    -   Feel hurt and mistreated
    -   Try to be aloof and indifferent

    … and you have seen that none of these work! They only make it worse.

    What is the way out of this?
    How can you maintain your lovingness?

    -  Have patience.
    -  Be centered and limit your expression of love. Sometimes over expression of love puts people off.
    -  Change your expression of love.
    -  Take it for granted that they love you and accept their style of expression
    -  Genuinely acknowledge their love for you.
       This will turn your demand into gratefulness.
       The more grateful you are in life, more love comes your way.
    -  Know that hurt is part of love and take responsibility for it.
    -  Realize that when you move away from your center,
       you will feel miserable and that the nature of worldliness is misery.

    When you think of others and yourself, have thoughts of riches, prosperity,
    success, and goodness. Having such thoughts helps make them come true.
    Let your thoughts about everyone be of their increased good. Picture everyone
    as successful. Sometimes people bring financial hardship to themselves by
    dwelling on other people's financial difficulties, for what you focus on is what you
    draw to yourself. Rather than talking about how hard life is for people, send them
    compassion and light; see them getting out of their difficult situations and experiencing
    abundance. The positive pictures and love you send out will come back to you many
    times over.

    Be Happy, Be positive and Be Strong!

    Pain is a given, but suffering is a choice. Everyone faces obstacles in life.
    They are part of life. You can choose to be victim or victor, succumb to
    setbacks or rise above them. Life is like a game. Some times you win,
    at other times you lose. You have to be able to take it in your stride.

    If you depend on the constantly changing, unpredictable world you
    will get crushed by it. Learn to be self-reliant. The world will bow to you.
    Spiritual development is inversely proportional to your dependence on
    the world. The more you lean on it, the less you get. The less you need
    the more you get! Vedanta helps you become independent of the world
    and enables you to gain more from it.

    An enlightened master is totally independent, yet has the world at his feet!
    There are three states of balance ­ restless, fragile and steady. The lowest
    is when you are like a cone on its apex, totally dependent on external factors.

    The intermediate state is when you are like a cone on its side ­ calm by
    yourself but the slightest fluctuation creates long spells of mental agitation.
    Be like a cone resting on its base. Nothing will topple or overwhelm you.
    You will be constantly at peace irrespective of what the world offers.

    Every challenge is an opportunity to grow. The way out is to build inner
    reserves. Gain knowledge of your real worth. Fluctuations of the world
    will no longer traumatise you. They will only amuse and entertain you.
    Assess people and situations what they are, not what you would like
    them to be. Then you will not have un realistic expectations and
    disappointments. Defer decisions if your mind is clouded. Consult
    a clear thinker who will throw fresh light on the matter. Get a sense
    of humour! The spiritual path does not demand change of lifestyle,
    wardrobe or location.

    You do not have to move away from family , friends or career.
    It only calls for a change of attitude. Move from the mindset of taking,
    to that of giving. The law is ­ give, you gain; grab, you lose. Base your
    life on serving, adding value to others, offering your talent to a larger
    cause. See the miraculous results it brings.

    When you have conflict with the people you love most you tend to blame
    them. Look within. It is your selfishness that is the cause. You expect people
    to dance to your tune; you make demands and impose restrictions on them.
    This makes them want to break free. Love people for what they are. Accept
    them with their faults and idiosyncrasies. Learn to be self-sufficient. You will
    enjoy their presence and not miss them when they are gone. They will love
    you dearly.

    Objectivity is the secret of enjoyment.

    You are able to `enjoy' tragedy , even murder, and horror on screen,
    because you know you are apart from it. Similarly you are an actor on the
    stage of life. Play your role to the best of your ability , wholeheartedly .
    Exit when the time comes. You are your Self.

    You have nothing to do with the roles you play . You seem to have lost
    your identity . Understand who you are. The world will lose its sting.
    You will enjoy the roles and retreat into an oasis of Bliss when your
    part is over.

    Be Happy, Be positive and Be Strong!

    Don't demand that people need to recognize you.
    So what if everyone doesn't recognize you,
    or if everyone recognizes you, so what?
    Let the whole world recognize you, so what?
    And if nobody recognizes you, so what?
    There are flowers in the garden, there are flowers in the forest.
    Do they say, '' Oh, nobody saw me, I have blossomed?''
    Does it matter to the rose whether someone looks at it or not?
    In fact, if people look at it, they may pluck it!
    It is better nobody sees them - they are happy.

    This urge for recognition from somebody is what kills you.
    You do your job and that's it! What has to come to you.
    Why do we need to crave for other's recognition?
    That brings ego - ''Me, me, me, I did it.''
    So many lives like this you have existed on this planet and
    they have all gone - so many mosquitoes like you.

    You know that story of an elephant and the fly on it's leg?
    A fly was living on the leg of an elephant.
    Once the fly got so angry at the elephant, it said, ''I'm leaving you today!
    Finished! Enough is enough! I'm done with you.'' It got so angry, it left.
    At that moment, just by accident, the elephant moved it's leg and some dust arose.
    But the fly thought that the storm has come because it is leaving the elephant.
    It told the elephant, ''Yes, you see, the storm has come?
    I'm leaving you - you suffer from the storm.''
    The elephant didn't even know that the fly was sitting on it's leg!

    And that is how nobody really cares what you are, what you do,
    what you don't do. And all impact gets wiped out by the flood of time.
    Time comes and just floods you, wipes you out, wipes all the memory out of this planet.
    This me, me, me can only dissolve and you serve.
    He becomes free from this identity of ego, identity of the smallness.
    Identifying yourself with the smallness, because this smallness is the cause of misery.
     ''I was not recognized.
    Nobody looked at me, nobody loves me.
    '' Come on, wake up. You are love! Love is in giving, not in demanding.

    - An extract from 'Narada Bhakti Sutra' by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

    If you are sad n in pain, Be as the ocean, and release. The ocean tides don't pause and hold in anything, they ebb...and then they flow. Only briefly holding on top of a wave for a moment. If something from your past bubbles up, simply take a deep breath, and let it go. More love!

    4 Powerful Ways to Deal with Judgement:

    1. Release your own judgement.

    When you prematurely judge someone, you miss the opportunity to
    get to know who they are and what makes them unique.  You allow
    your limited perspective to cloud your vision from seeing the good in them.
    If they’re close to you, you miss the opportunity to love them more.

    Releasing judgement also means releasing judgement of yourself.
    We can tend to be our own worst critic. When we release judgement
    of ourselves, we allow for more room to love ourselves. Areas that
    we were seeking to find improvement can gradually get better because
    we have switched our focus from a positive loving perspective rather than
    a negative, critical one.

    As you slowly begin to release judgement, you find you will experience
    less judgement from others.  Your vibration will be lifted and you will rise
    above. It doesn’t mean people aren’t doing it, but you won’t experience
    it in front of you.

    2. Switch your focus to the positive.

    Tip #1 is a gradual process and it’s something that doesn’t happen overnight.
    In the meantime, practicing to switch your focus to the good of others and
    the good of yourself works well.

    Next time you find yourself being heavily judged and feeling down,
    switch your focus on everything you have achieved.  You have come
    a long way and have had great accomplishments. You are doing the best
    you can and you know that. In fact, the better you do the more nay-sayers
    there will be. So, by creating the habit to switch your focus and draw from
    that inner confidence will allow you to positively deal with judgement.

    The highest spiritual practice is self-observation without judgement. –Swami Kripalu

    3. Don’t take personal offense.


    If someone is being critical of you, remind yourself that their opinion is coming
    from their limited perspective. They aren’t you and they haven’t lived a day in
    your shoes. Therefore, their opinion truly doesn’t matter. In fact, sometimes
    when someone is (on some level) jealous of you, they will purposely try to pick
    you apart. It makes them feel better.

    Learning not to take offense of judgement can be tough, especially if it’s coming
    from someone you love. You may feel like you have to take offense and reply
    on the defense to protect yourself. But, the better choice is just to shrug it off.

    It takes strength to shrug it off. That strength comes from an inner confidence
    of knowing you do the best you can. If you find it hard to do, ask yourself if there
    is some truth (even a little) in what they are saying. Sometimes compassionate
    judgement can help us improve and grow.

    4. Leave the situation.

    So, if you have tried all of the above tips and you are still receiving destructive
    judgement (not compassionate, loving feedback) that you cannot handle
    it’s best to leave the situation and create limits .  Negative environments,
    especially with people you really care about, can quickly effect your personal
    happiness and self growth. You need to thrive in this world and there are enough
    outside influences that we have to overcome.

    We need to surround ourselves with loving, positive people who care about
    our well being and think about our highest good.

    People are going to judge you, but the best defense is knowing who you truly are,
    what you want and where you are going.

    Maybe someday there will come a time when judgement no longer exists. 
    There’s a beautiful freedom in allowing each of us to be ourselves. 
    Together, let’s create a brighter future with compassion, and freedom for all!



    Be Happy, Be positive and Be Strong!
