Ten Reminders for Individual Development and Life Fulfillment

Updated on April 29, 2011

What does it do?

This practice will be very beneficial for individual development and fulfillment as well as for the development and fulfillment of the world.

These ten reminders practiced during your waking hours can be used as an appeal to the higher self or as a universal prayer. Thus this is appropriate for people of all religions as well as for non-religious or atheistic oriented individuals.

Whether it is an appeal to your higher self or in the form of a prayer, it is important that you take the time and space for this practice. Regardless of where you are, whether you are at work or somewhere else, allow space every hour for few minutes as much as possible.

First hour - Reminder 1:

Let me remember to always look first at that which is happening in me, instead of limiting my attention only to that which is coming from the outside.

Second hour - Reminder 2:

Let me remember that the way things appear to me or how they are interpreted by me is only one of the many angles of perception.  Let me not believe that the way I see or experience things is the ultimate truth.  Let me thereby not get trapped in any dogmatic, fanatic or serious judgments and reactions.

Third hour - Reminder 3:

Let me remember, in every situation, to bring my attention to what I have, what is given to me, and what the blessings are in my life rather than focusing my attention on what is not there, what is not given to me and grieving or complaining about it.

Fourth hour - Reminder 4:

Let me remember that with each thought, each feeling I engage myself in, each act or inaction, I am giving my energy a direction in which to flow and manifest in my life, thereby creating a positive or a negative energy field around me in which I am bathed. Let me become conscious of my responsibility and become aware of my opportunity in it.

Fifth hour - Reminder 5:

Let me look at myself and try to understand myself more deeply with a quality of friendliness rather than getting trapped in an approach of fighting with myself, condemning myself or wallowing in guilty feelings.

Sixth hour - Reminder 6:

Let me consider my fellow human beings as well as life in itself more sympathetically, compassionately, patiently and playfully.

Seventh hour - Reminder 7:

Let me be able to look at everything in life directly, without getting ensnared in my usual beliefs, preferences, prejudices, fears, or desires.  Let me understand that my judgments are part of my past unconscious conditioning.

Eight hour - Reminder 8:

Let me remember all that I mostly take for granted; the air I breathe, the water I drink, the food I eat, the warmth of the sun, the colors of nature, the fragrance of the flowers, the taste of fruits and spices, the beauty of birds and animals, fellow human beings, friendship, love, health, breath, life.  Allow me the humility to not take these things for granted.

Ninth hour - Reminder 9:

May I recognize and live with the knowledge that all that is of this world, including the body and the personality with which I normally identify and refer to as “I” are part of an ongoing, changing and passing phenomena of life. Remembering this, instead of trying to cling or settle in these, let me cherish each moment, rejoicing and celebrating the uniqueness of it all.

Tenth hour - Reminder 10:

Let me recognize that conflicts, confrontations and disharmony are part of the natural process of our reality and when approached correctly, they help us to grow and develop our potential and create dynamism and vitality in life. In this sense let me accept and respect what is natural, with its diversity and polarity, and let me learn and ripen through it all.

The Source of Joy Within
The Source of Joy Within

The Source of Joy Within by Bhashkar Perinchery contains twelve sets of meaningful reminders, practical methods that can be applied in everyday life situations. The reminders can be practiced without additional time and will help you attune to the silence and joy within yourself...



In this sense let me also remember to keep the contents of these reminders or prayers in my heart and apply them in my everyday living; from situation to situation, and from moment to moment.  Let me live as creatively as possible.

This is something that requires your wholehearted participation and your inner determination. Once again, this can be practiced by everybody. This practice is very valuable in this delicate and decisive turning point in the life-process on the earth.

 Videos of Bhashkar Perinchery and further information are available in the Internet at,, on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook.

 The "Three C's": C onsciousness, C ompassion, C reativity are an orientation for a fulfilling life.
