Words of Wisdom

Spiritual Inspirations can certainly inspire and help us to live much more fulfilled lives. We are ‘struggling’ as it is, but elevated thoughts do inspire us, and would serve as beacons to guide us along the road of Self-discovery. We are all forced to fight against our lower nature, and in spite of being shining jewels, we occasionally stumble. These few selected pointers, like a good map, are to assist and guide us on our pilgrimage to the Love Divine:

Prayer:

Prayer is an attempt to lay hold of God Itself. Invoke the presence of Something Higher, and encourage the heart to grow. By invoking the Soul, we are also able to assimilate the experience of descending life-energy or Grace, which is essential for the transformation of our lower natures.

Regularity:

Be regular in your daily habits, work and spiritual practices. Be punctual in your prayer and meditation. Seek to avoid hastiness and shabby work. Exercise patience. Regularity is engraved on the Soul which will eventually knock on our inner doors at the appointed time.

Equanimity:

Be calm. Strive to bear insults patiently. Be impartial. Always strive to see the whole picture. Minimise the disturbances to your inner peace. Strive to be calm within and to radiate externally, a serene and cheerful countenance. Seek to transform anger and violent emotions. This eventually leads to the way of peace and blessedness.

Sincerity:

Strive to achieve harmony in your thoughts, words and actions. Be sincere and honest in your dealings with others. Speak the truth but never a cruel truth, a truth with bad intent may cause unwanted or malicious consequences.

One-pointedness:

Be conscious of your Ideal with loving remembrance. Strive to live as dictated from within. Anything which is helpful and unselfish would go a long way towards becoming a more peaceful being. Whatever you do, do with love and concern. Never deviate from the Path that you have chosen. Be one with it thus making it a part of your nature. Reach out for that which is noble and good.


Adaptability:

Listen to others. They too have their story. Try to be pleasing. Bear with their eccentricities where possible, and react in a harmonious manner. See the Light in all those you meet. Never look down on others. Adjust to whatever situation you encounter with a serene spirit.

Humility: Respect all as being of the same inner Light. None are inferior to us. Be like the grass which gets trampled upon without complaining, or the yielding tree that offers to all.

Purity: Practice inner cleanliness and self-control. Reduce turbulent emotions such as greed and lust through selfless work. Avoid vulgar, harsh or unkind words. Take a broad view of life. Strive to tolerate the faults of others.

Charity:

Give, give and give. This is the secret of abundance. Give of yourself, and be grateful to the man you give. In this lies an opportunity to make progress. Radiate thoughts of goodness and love. Practice forgiveness, and be liberal with a large heart.

Cheerfulness:

Strive to laugh and to make others happy. Be childlike. Bear your karma cheerfully. God is equally with us in suffering as in our joys. Sorrow will follow joy, as night will follow day. The Law of Duality is an active law. Karma may take us away from the people we love most. Cultivate the spirit of acceptance and a reliance on the Cosmos or God. Be brave in order to be cheerful; be cheerful in order to be brave. Intensify your inner faith. Smile, practice good humour.

This is by no means a complete list. You can add many more and especially those that are meaningful to you. What is essential is that we remain unique and true to our own selves. Striving to abide in His Light and glorifying the Master's name.

      That's me all over. You won't really go wrong there. Sing, laugh, be 'child likely' silly. Do satsang, by this I mean be in a likeminded group. Praise.

      Kathi,

      You remind me of myself. I am always smiling, doing silly things, (I hope you don't) seemingly silly things, singing, cracking jokes ... Your smile reminds me of this. Keep it up!
