To pay attention to every act is to be a hero.

Message for the day 18-03-2011
To pay attention to every act is to be a hero.

Projection: Normally it is understood that to get the best role is to be a hero actor. So we are more inclined towards a role where we can get people's praise. If people praise us we feel good about it and if they don't we are disappointed. We are usually dependent on people's appreciation. yet it doesn't come by so consistently.

Solution: I am a hero actor when I have attention on every act of mine. I make sure that none of my words or actions are ordinary or waste. I ensure perfection in everything that I do. Since I pay constant attention to everything I do, I find that I am able to give my best. I am then satisfied with whatever is happening since I know what I do is not as important as how well I do it.

Meditation - A Process Of "Cleansing", "Dialogue" And "Joining" (cont.)

Meditation can be defined as a process of cleansing, a process of dialogue and a process of joining. Today we take up:


We can take the third meaning of meditation from the Sanskrit word yoga. By understanding this word, we learn how to get divine cooperation, or put in another way, a certain external spiritual power that can liberate us and help us to dialogue positively with the self (explained yesterday). The word yoga means "bringing together" or "joining again". Joining again with what or with whom? Firstly, with our original and eternal self: the soul, and secondly, with the eternal Supreme Source of all positive power and energy; this Source helps us to recharge ourselves with energy and to know ourselves.

At this time in the history of humanity, humans have lost the mastery and control over themselves. They do not have continual peace or a sense of purpose, happiness or fullness. The human soul needs to be recharged. Although the soul has great potential in its inner self, it needs a source of external energy for the latent (hidden) powers and virtues to emerge, just as occurs with seeds in nature. The seeds of plants and trees have their own source of inner energy. However, this energy cannot be released without the actions of an external energy source, in this case the energy of the sun. Through the power of sunlight, the seeds in the earth will sprout and flourish.

The human body has its own energy, but needs external sources of energy on a daily basis: air, sunlight, water and food. Without these external sources, the human body would die. The external source of power that helps the latent virtues emerge in the human being is not physical, since the human soul is not physical either. This source of power has traditionally been called God or the Supreme Being: in fact it has been given many names.
