WHAT DETERMINES THE QUALITY OF YOUR INNER LIFE ?

When it comes to wisdom, you need not give a lengthy sermon. The best idea could be expressed in a few words. This is much needed, especially in one's spiritual life.

The spiritual path is not a taboo for common folks. One must tread this path to feeling blessed every moment . To live means to act ceaselessly. Whatever you do, your intention should always be for the good of people. Don't break the heart of others simply for the sake of your own petty gains.

As long as the intention is good, you need not worry. The doctor when he uses a knife for a patient's operation is lauded, whereas the robber when he uses the same knife to torment the householder to steal his wealth is caught and punished. Here the knife is same, but the person who uses it and the intention are different.

As long as our actions help others to grow in life should not be thought otherwise.

Swami Sukhabodhananda in his much-acclaimed book Oh, Mind Relax Please ! says that there are two types of actions; outer & inner. What determines the quality of one's life is the inner action - thoughts and emotions. Be alert to every moment in your thoughts & emotions and learn to relax.

So act with a positive mind-frame!



ENLIGHTENMENT

Enlightenment is looking for spectacles that are sitting right on your nose.

ART OF LISTENING


In April 2011, I wrote an article on 'Listening' and that article was written from HR perspective meant for business world. I could simply say that the dimensions I discussed were from the prism of material world.

Over the years, I have been carefully observing that my listening skills are not upto mark and they need to be fine-tuned to understand more of my Self than the words of other persons.

The awareness goes to next level only if the help comes from a spiritually advanced person who is matured enough to give a sermon on human relations.
