To be an example is to ensure positive correction.

Message for the day 12-08-2015

Thought to ponder: To correct people through words is easy. Yet, we find that people are not ready to listen to what we say. Each one feels, in his own way, that he is right. So however positively we put it, we cannot change people's thinking. But whatever we want to teach, we first have to be an embodiment of that. When we become a role model, people learn, without them feeling that they are being corrected. 

Point to practice: Today I will be patient even when I see someone doing something wrong. I will not correct him and make him feel guilty. Because I understand that if his behavior is wrong, my correction is wrong too. Specially if it is done rudely or with anger or irritation. So I understand that one wrong cannot correct another wrong.

A Beautiful Reunion (Part 1)

Have you ever wondered why we started celebrating festivals? One of the main reasons why festivals started being celebrated, apart from the traditional reasons, was to bring enthusiasm in the lives of people through celebrations on special days. We at the Brahma Kumaris also celebrate festivals, but we celebrate them with their spiritual significance deeply held in our minds, because festivals without their spiritual importance lose their substance and their essence of purity. At the same time, care is taken that apart for celebrating the festival on the special day, every day is treated as a series of joyful moments of time so that the happiness is not restricted to the day of the festival but every day is a fun fill festival. Everyday involves a loveful chit chat with the spiritual parent - the mother and the father (or God), playing with the jewels of knowledge which he gives and also distributing the jewels to others in the same way as we used to play as little children and share chocolates and simple gifts with each other and experience the happiness associated with the loveful bonding that existed between all of us due to that.

Also, a day in God’s company is incomplete without sharing all the love that we have inside us with the world family because spirituality is incomplete without sharing all that you fill yourself with – the peace, joy and good wishes with others. So, life is not being close to God alone but also close to other souls of the world family. Both these pure relationships - with God and the other souls of the world family, in the present, are based on the spiritual knowledge of who we are, who God is and who the souls of the world family are and what roles all of us have played in the world drama.
