To stay in our self-respect is to achieve success.

Message for the day 

Projection: The opinion of the self is usually based on those around us specially on those who are important to us. We usually find our thoughts being swayed by whatever we hear from others about us. As we continue to hear from others we begin to believe what we hear and consider ourselves the same. 

Solution: We need to recognise our own uniqueness and speciality and make conscious effort to remember and work with them. The more we do this we will be able to maintain our own self-respect. Then we will not be influenced by any criticism but will continue to work for our success.

Self Transformation (Change) (Part 2) 

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

Daily practice 
Having the inner discipline to practise meditation by one's self is necessary because, in reality, we have to be self-reliant as only we can step into our mind and bring it long-term benefit. The mind needs to relax and to refresh itself if a person is to feel positive and strong to live each day peacefully and effectively. When this is recognized, time for inner silence every day becomes a personal priority. 

Start each day with positive silence. Before work, breakfast, or doing anything, let us step inside the self for a little while. In this space of introspection (self-observation), we can connect with our original spiritual qualities, charging up our internal battery with positive thoughts for the day ahead. 

At the end of the day, we can remove any remaining thoughts of past actions - after all 'past is past' - and send our good wishes where they are needed. 

The daily practice of morning preparation and evening clearing, keeps the mind healthy. A healthy mind is light and focused, not disturbed, or burdened easily.
