Awareness of inner power brings the capacity to use the inner treasures.

Message for the day  10-08-2011
Awareness of inner power brings the capacity to use the inner treasures.

We have within us a lot of treasures - the treasures of thoughts, time and virtues that we have not been using fully. The power within us enables us to recognise and use these treasures in a worth while way. The more we are able to work with them we find them increasing.

Solution: I need to remind myself of the treasures within me and try and discover which treasure I have that I can work on. Even if I think of a simple speciality of mine which I could make use of, I would find it increasing and I would find others benefitting too.

Positive Thinking
It is important to clarify some misconceptions regarding positive thinking, since some people think that a positive thinker always goes round with a good-natured smile on their face thinking that everything is hunky-dory. Whatever happens, they will just tell you to keep smiling. Others believe that positive thinking turns us into timid and weak people.

It is not like that though. The more we understand and experiment with our own inner qualities and powers, the stronger we become and less we depend on others. Knowing our own weaknesses can also help us to become stronger and more stable people.

Why do we want to be positive? Because being positive means being in harmony. Just as our bodies are 80 per cent water and this is the element that we most need daily, so our inner selves also need positivity, because that is what it is.

We spend our lives in search of peace, happiness, love, truth and knowledge, our most genuine qualities. What we are looking for in our lives, what we are longing for, we already possess in our inner selves. We simply have to rediscover it through reflection and meditation.

Positive thinking is a mental attitude. It is a way of seeing life. It means doing things with assertiveness. It is a way of behaving and taking a position before events, situations and people.
