To be strong is to watch situations with detachment.

Message for the day 

Projection: When a difficult situation comes our way, we think it is permanent. We do try to bring about change, but very soon give up when we don't find any change. We lose patience to work on the situation and we feel tensed and stressed. 

Solution: In order to pass in any situation we need to recognize and understand the fact that all situations will surely pass by when the time comes. But we don't have to get stuck with it at that time. We need to do what we can and just wait for the time to pass by.

Self Transformation (Change) (Part 6) 

Here are some practical reminders and steps we can take to grow spiritually and bring out transformation (change) in ourselves: 

Develop a spiritual lifestyle 
The daily practice of meditation will be aided (helped) if we change those aspects of our life that affect, or weaken our ability to control the mind and live in a state of peace e.g. taking mind-altering substances (substances which affect the mind negatively) like alcohol and drugs, watching violent films or performing other negative actions that strengthen old patterns of behaviour and sanskars that take us away from our true self. 

Many changes happen easily and naturally as we begin to experience the benefits of meditation. Our desires for material objects beyond those that are necessary for daily living reduce as we seek to live a simpler, quieter life. We gain a deeper respect for nature and loose the desire to eat animal flesh, and we become more selective about the company we keep and the things we talk about, realizing that everything we say and do has an impact on us and the world around us. 

As our self-esteem and confidence subsequently grow, we feel ourselves drawn to help others, to share the benefits we have learned from our own inner journey. Life becomes filled with greater meaning and purpose and we want to do our best for the spiritual upliftment for ourselves, for our families and for our communities.
