Why are we not able to progress quickly

The reason why people do not progress quickly is that they are loaded with a pile of external opinions and thoughts. If you go for a walk in the morning and someone asks you where you are going, you reply cheerfully that you are taking a walk. How cheerful your face looks!

At 10 or 11 a.m., if you are going the same route and someone asks you the same question, you answer dispiritedly: I am going to office. You no longer exude cheer, Why Because your mind is full of all kinds of ideas I have to do this, i have to do that you are burdened with the sense of doership. This is not the way, Go to the office or your shop,but plan your day in such a way as if you were a prince at play.You should take all your duties as if they are acts of amusement.

You may think, If i take my work like pastime, my business will suffer. You’re wrong, if you free yourself from anxiety and stress, you will work better. Why should you worry, You have seen the events of the past, you are seeing the present and you will also see what will come to pass in the future. At the most, you will die, and die you must some day or the other. Don’t be afraid of death; don’t try to save yourself from death, and don’t try to escape it either. Invite and welcome troubles with a challenging and playful curiosity. Then they will lose their severity.

Many people are in perpetual fear of being insulted. Insult is far better than the fear of insult. Death is preferable to the fear of death. Criticism is better than the fear of criticism. Fear fans the fire of distressing thoughts; it diminishes your energy. So live life free of fear, worry and stress.

Poet Miltons wife would chide him when he set out to walk with the aid of a walking stick. Every day you go for a walk, but what do you seek to gain from this You cant even see properly now. Milton would reply, Birds sing, winds play about and caress me. In that fresh morning air, when the dawn comes tearing the nocturnal darkness apart, it brings an untold beauty. I go to see that beauty. His wife would say, But you don’t have vision. How can you see beauty? Milton would reply: Beauty is not seen with external eyes. The eyes that see beauty are within us.

Similarly, to analyse our life there is no need of the external eye; we need the internal eye. To see how calm or happy we are, or what is the state of our mind in adverse circumstances, we don’t need external vision. We don’t require external eyes to see if we behave with equanimity in the face of troubles and insults. We require the internal eye to see whether we are influenced by praise and respect or we remain untouched by them. Therefore,instead of carrying the burden of the sense of doer or enjoyer, one should seek refuge in the enlightened ones and comprehend their witness absolute, eternal, pure, knowledge personified real Self free from all bondage.

Recognizing different faces in you

Different Faces

Different Faces

Every human being have amazing power within themselves. To have in mind a purpose or plan, to direct the mind helps you achieve your goal. Following power helps you achieve it,

Face of creativity:

Creativity is really about innovation and creating something from nothing using the power of your mind. Creativity is in you, whether you believe me or not.

 

Face of kindness:

Any great power that can bring energy and thought into physical form must come out of kindness. This is manifested with the power of positive thinking and an intent to do good. The law of reciprocity can only reward kind intentions.

 

Face of love:

The face of love conquers all. Think of this power of intention as the face of kindness exponentiation with the emotion of love. When you intend for your clients, vendors, employees and investors to grow and couple that with a lack of judgement, hate, anger or resentment — more of what you want or desire ┬ácan manifest itself without impediment.

 

Face of beauty:

The face of beauty is truth, honesty and a knowing that what “is” — is exactly as it should be. You can use this power by re-framing any negative thoughts you have towards others and replace them with an appreciate (a thankfulness attitude) towards them.

 

Face of expansion:

This is the law and the power of spirit to help you expand your awareness of what is possible in your life. Be open to the “knowings” that you have always had inside you that have quietly been guiding you. Listen to them. Whatever you think about expands and it is natural to expand. To deny this truth is to deny a part of your purpose here on Earth.

 

Face of unlimited abundance:

The face of unlimited abundance works in the power of intention or attraction. You were probably taught all of your life about limitations and about what is “not possible.” Fortunately, this came from well-meaning people who believed in limitation and not abundance. This law does not require you to be intellectually perfect in order to receive the benefits. Believing in unlimited abundance has no downside, so why not take another look at your life after you answer this question, “What if I could have it all?”

 

Face of receptivity:

The universal laws of intention are open to everyone and without any judgement. Consider the application of this principle is really about believing in yourself and your ability to be open to unlimited possibilities. Banish your doubts. Focus only on your positive intentions towards others and yourself to tap into this energy.
