The power to handle hopeless situations

Message for the day 18-08-2011

The power within changes even hopeless situations into hopeful ones.

All of us have so much power within that we are able to see the brighter side of the situation when we use this power. Where there is power, there is happiness and this automatically makes the most hopeless situations into something beautiful. Thus we can be peaceful and happy. When we are able to maintain this stage we find that things change for the better too.

Solution: Let me think of one situation that I'm not happy with. Let me use my inner power to accept the situation as it is without expecting it to change. This acceptance will give me the faith that things are happening for the best. With this faith even the most hopeless situation will turn positive.

Reflection (thinking deeply) is a necessary step in digesting knowledge.

Reflection is an exercise of the mind and intellect that goes into the depths of understanding an idea, or realization, or point of knowledge with the aim of practicing it in daily life.

Values in my life are a sign that knowledge has been digested; without this, knowledge simply remains a beautiful aspect, appreciated, interesting information in my intellect but without the ability to give me strength because it is still external; it has not been internalised.

All quality action (quality action is that action which is truly appropriate to person, circumstance and the need of the moment), all newness of perception (understanding), all new insights, or vision, require a space for silent reflection as a preliminary step.

Normally, we are lost in the business of action, its routine and ritual that make our life so mechanical and hence dull and boring, or demanding and hectic.

A mind and intellect that do not give time and attention to reflective silence (meditation) become lazy, though externally there is lots of activity for hours and hours. No new heights are reached because there is no depth of awareness in what we are doing, no reflection on purpose. As a result, we get trapped by routine.
