I would like to share this message I received from a friend of mine today. I think it is another good reminder how important it is to consistently evaluate what is really essential for us in our lives, and to focus on these things that are most important to us by living in the present moment, being aware of our actions and moving towards who we truly are and what we desire. Here we go.
Determination enables you to pass through the barriers of fear, doubt and insecurities. It’s a strength that takes you on the road to success.
Determination can’t make it without patience.
Patience teaches you not to push, but rather to wait and appreciate the game of life, knowing that everything will change at some point.
Ask yourself: What is preventing me from moving forward? What keeps me stuck in the past?
Are you ready to say goodbye to the old habits, thinking, vocabulary and ways that are not working for you?
What is time calling me to do? – Time is saying: GO FOR IT!
But what do we do? We give excuses.
In the new year, everyone has the motivation and enthusiasm to achieve their aims and goals, …but.
Remove this “but” of excuses and reasons. There will always be reasons – people, situations, weather…
PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT IS HAPPENING IN YOUR INNER WORLD.
Just remember, situations will arise. Why should I allow a situation to have the power to remove my happiness!
Do not take something easy and make it difficult. Do not expand upon things and make them complicated in your head.
When you pay attention to what is happening in your inner world, you increase your ability to focus. And this gives you the power to make decisions easily. You have a clear sense of what to do and what not to do; what is right and wrong; what to say and not to say.
ALIGN YOUR CHARACTER WITH YOUR AIM
Simply develop the characteristics of success – align your character with your aim. Then, no matter what, stay focused!
Be careful not to get caught up in anything that will bring you down. Dont disturb anyone or allow yourself to get disturbed. Dont be suppressed nor impressed.
Keep good wishes for everyone even if they are pressing your buttons. The faith you keep in other people will help them to move forward.
This is what I do:
I become quiet and stop my mind from roaming here and there…and then I go deep inside…I look at myself…I look at God and then connect…recharging my inner light.
God is my Power Supply – always there, always available.
When I stay in God’s company, I become a detached observer. As an observer of the drama of life, I learn to be in the drama and enjoy each scene with pleasure.
Then, instead of worrying about how others see me, I pay attention to how I see others. I look at myself and at others with God’s vision – God definitely loves each one.
YOU CAN MAKE THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE
You can make the impossible, possible. Just have faith. When you have faith, you wont sit around, waiting for things to happen. You will take action.
With a pure heart and a pure thought you can do anything. JUST DO IT!
That is what time is saying to me – LIVE AND MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY MOMENT!
It has to be now…or never.
This is it – the moment!
This is the point of change…the time to make it happen.
No Excuses! No Limits!
Are you living the life you want?
Or are you sitting on the bench, waiting for life to just happen?
What’s really stopping you from getting fully involved and ‘making’ it happen?
Are you making excuses?
Recognise your own unlimited potential and break free of limiting beliefs.
Change what you don’t like and live the life you REALLY want.
And have more fun living, even if it’s a bit scary!
– No limits – No fears – No worries
– No complaints – No regrets – No excuses
NOW is the time to restart.
Dadi Janki refuses to set limits and boundaries as to what is achievable and in so doing, inspires others to believe that they too can make the impossible, possible. She is now 94 years old but still continues to travel the world, engaging and empowering individuals. Her experience stems from 73 years practice of meditation.
Don”t ask, “how are you”, but “who are you?” Speak to the soul. Know clearly who you are.
When you look at yourself, what is it that you see inside?
First you have to eliminate false pride, which results in inferiority or superiority.
Inferiority says, “No one recognises me”, and superiority says, “I am great”.
Become free from both of these.
Identify the positive qualities within. Appreciate who you are and the qualities you have. Put them into practice more often.
When we use our qualities without ego then God fills those qualities with His power. It is as if the speciality is no longer mine but it becomes a gift that God has especially given to me.
Focus your emotions and your energies in the direction that”s aligned with the soul. This is a very simple matter.
Go deep within and ask yourself: what d I have to do.
The step into the soul”s potential, let go of the past. Whatever has taken place, say good it was in the drama of life.
Keep the soul”s potential in front of you, then you can reach it. If you keep thinking about how you were in the past then this will hold you back. No one can hold you back, but you can get held back.
Step out of your fears and say YES!
Remove these four expressions from your vocabulary:
1. but – I would like to do this, but…
2. try – I will try…
4. I need a little bit of time
Dadi”s method for living without fear: LIVE EVERY MOMENT AS IF IT IS YOUR LAST!
Become strong, stand on your own feet, and then you will have the confidence to believe that things are possible. When your attitude is strong you begin to feel passion and enthusiasm.
Sometimes people ask me, “Where do you get all your energy from, Dadi?”
I have energy because I have never wasted my energy and I never will. In fact, energy comes from firstly my own spirituality, secondly my connection with God, thirdly, charitable actions.
Where does happiness come from? – The heart!
I maintain it, so no one can take it away. My happiness is my personal property from God. I won’t let anyone or anything steal it.
Don”t allow your passion and enthusiasm to reduce for any reason.
If you let it reduce, it takes a long time to build it up again.
Your dreams, your destination is high, but keep them in your vision.
Don”t let your vision waver. Don’t waste time in seeing the situations.
Keep moving forward.
In relationships, with the self or in your work, don”t get tired or bored and give up.
How do you stop yourself from getting tired? When you are working, make sure your mind stays rested.
Don”t think too much about the work. Think too much and you are busy! Rushing around…you greet, you eat, you think, you walk, all in a rush!
What kind of life is that? – Slow down!
Be peaceful. Being peaceful does not mean being inefficient or ineffective.
Sit and eat peacefully…with love!
Interact with other with love.
Experiment with this and see how much energy you accumulate.
Breathe easily. Sit with alertness. Don”t get distracted. Don”t look here and there.
Stabilise yourself and concentrate. You will then receive a lot of energy.
Wow! I feel wow because God has so much confidence in me and this helps me to be confident in myself.
When your mind and heart is light, you will experience wow! The feeling of wow should glimmer on your face.
Keep the habit of being light. Fix this slogan within yourself: I AM HAPPY!
Remember it and practice making your mind smile.
When you feel your life is wow, then like a butterfly – beautiful, light, you”ll be able to flutter and fly high.
This is spiritual metamorphosis – positive change from within!
