Difficulties and challenges bring out our hidden treasures.

Message for the day 12-02-2011
Difficulties and challenges bring out our hidden treasures.

Projection: When we are faced with challenges, we usually experience that there are not sufficient resources or we are not able to make use of our resources for best results. So instead of experiencing progress, I experience a lot of negative feelings.

Solution: When I learn the art of being stable in the most negative situations, I know how to use the treasures that are hidden within me. My mind is no longer disturbed with waste or negative thoughts and I find it easy to face and learn from each and every situation.

Turning Qualities Into Powers (cont.)

There are interesting spiritual parallels to the way the physical sciences differentiate energy and power. In physical terms, energy is defined as the capacity of doing work. Power is defined as the rate of doing work.

Similarly, we can look upon spiritual energy as our capacity for experiencing the original qualities of the soul. We all have this capacity, but to different degrees. Spiritual power is then seen as the extent to which we put these qualities to work in difficult situations and in our relationships. Spiritual power helps us remain in a state of truth, in the face of the various tests that come. Also, our actions and relationships give us an opportunity to utilize the power we have accumulated.

The qualities of God experienced in meditation are also the original qualities of the soul, but the link with God is essential for us to enhance these qualities inside us. In fact God, too, needs the connection with us, despite having these qualities to the highest degree, in order to exercise his power to restore truth to the world.

There are eight key spiritual powers (e.g. power to tolerate, withdraw, accommodate, etc.) in terms of their application in everyday life - all of which we have discussed and shared with our readers over the last few months.

In Spiritual Service,
Brahma Kumaris
