Positive Reflections

Realising the Self

Sometime in the journey of life, some of the following questions might have crossed your mind.  Even if they haven’t, they eventually will certainly occur !

*     Who am I? What am I? What is my real identity?
*     How do my thoughts and feelings interact with the body?
*     How to make my mind powerful? Breaking the mysteries of mind;
*     Understanding thoughts, how they come and go, how to regulate them
*     Why do we come under emotions, feelings, tension and stress
*     How does an individual develops behavioral patterns, traits etc;
how to transform them
*     How to enjoy this precious life? How to lead a life of peace and bliss?

The first lesson is all about complete understanding of the self, which has remained a mystery that has eluded scientists, philosophers, great thinkers and many other intellectuals.

Life is full of cruel realities, which in every walk of life confronts us. We being part of the viscous cycle are unavoidably subjected to these realities.

Here is the twist in tail, we all are exposed to same realities but our perceptions are varied. Unlike, ‘Glass is half empty or half filled’ – there are multiple metaphors to the picture our eyes see (reads). Ahead of all lies the reasoning based on our past – life experiences, upbringing, society, and the list can go on.

This simple process of perceptions leads to interpretations and decisions in life.

The Power of Thought

The most powerful instrument that mankind possesses is thought power. Thoughts build our consciousness and shape our attitude. One needs to know how important thoughts are. Every human creation we see in this world is due to powerful thoughts in human minds. Thoughts shape our world. Thoughts are fertilized by knowledge. A person with a certain kind of knowledge usually creates thoughts in harmony with that knowledge. Knowledge gives wisdom; a person without knowledge is a person whose thoughts will be formed in ignorance.

Every action is preceded by thoughts. The quality of thoughts determines the quality of our karma. The karma in turn has good or bad effect on us.  This again influences our thinking. So right thinking based on right knowledge is essential for leading a peaceful and contented life.  This also helps in remaining mentally strong amidst turbulent situations
