Thoughts Affined to Motivational thoughts


Friends!
We can easily escape and wade through difficult situations simply by changing our outlook. If we happen to find ourselves in knotty positions, it is most inappropriate to despair and inadvisable to curse our fate or blame any other fellow being. We can change our outlook and contemplate that the cause of such contingencies resides within us only.Thus, We can only overcome these oppression if we desire. For this we need to be always engrossed in pure thoughts and strive to improve our inner state. This would automatically lead to the betterment of our external conditions for which we remain worried and anxious.
We cannot even imagine of leading a progressive and hassle free life if we remain entangled by various parasites which stagnate our growth. These evils might be anger, worry, jealousy and greed. We must first discard them in order to attain mental peace, focus and tranquility.
We may continuously keep on giving refuge to pristine intentions and virtuous thoughts and witness our problems vanish.

The oil in the lamp has finished. Only the burning cotton wick was emitting dim light was left. On seeing its dying moment, a householder couldn’t help asking it, “You have been guiding others by emitting your light for the whole life. You have been doing good to the world, yet when I see your such tragic end, my heart rends.”

The extinguishing lamp gathered its whole power and while emitting its glow for the last time, said, “Brother! In this mortal
world, one who is born is bound to die. We can’t escape death even after our all possible attempts. However, we can do only this much: we shouldn’t let the precious moments of our life go waste.”

Friends! Donation and charity are two means which provide us enormous opportunities. If we donate we experience mental peace and our soul is contented. But we must be cautious as to donate only to the needy persons. If we feed who is already overfed, he would fall sick. Hence,its useless being benevolent to those who do not deserve.

All of us are too scared of death because it seems like a demon. But, what is more perilous and dreadful than death is watching our fellowmen suffer while we do nothing for their betterment. We must engage part of our time in helping others in whatever manner we could. But, this should never be to get back name and fame. Rather it should be for our own self-improvement. Thus it would not be right to give any credit to ourselves as it inflates our ego. We must understand that benevolence helps none but ourselves. It teaches us to be patient and noble. Even if we refuse to donate, it would not make any difference to the society because the Supreme Being has bestowed everyone with adequate means for survival. Here our meager donations do not matter much, but, we might lose an opportunity to help others and eventually ourselves.

Friends! First a person ascertains his objectives, next he must try to focus all his energies towards it. But, for that he needs to accumulate sufficient power and strength. And this physical strength and mental invigoration can be acquired only through honest dedication and constant efforts to achieve the set goal. One must be fully devoted towards the purpose and should be continuously thinking about its attainment day in and day out. We must always ponder as to how it can be achieved. Labor! Labor! Labor! is the only tool that needs to be incorporated in our habits because there is no shortcuts to success! He who is completely oriented towards his targets deserves to succeed.

In order to procure capabilities and tenacity we need to be involved in good thoughts and humble deeds. Consequently we will be blessed through thousands of sources. And these blessings would help us to accumulate the required aptitude to attain our motive.

It is a sin to be weak, fragile and confused. A weakling is always overpowered and mocked at; subjected to numerous troubles and tribulations. Hence, we must always pray to the Ultimate, ” Oh Lord! please make us strong and confident so that we remain alert, successful and alive in your eyes, forever!”

Friends! We are the weavers of our own destiny. We have made our lives pitiful by becoming puppets at the hands of our own weaknesses and shortcomings. But we can overcome these with the help of our own conscience and perceptions. But, for this we need to go through a mental reformation. This mental reformation is the main foundation of a new era which is also a consequence of the thought transformation.
We face numerous problems and adversities in our lives, but we fail to understand that they are a result of our ignorance and frivolity. And the solution to these afflictions lies in awareness and enlightenment of the core of our hearts and souls.
A spider weaves its own web and gets entangled in it. But then it decides to break free and focuses its entire energy towards its freedom. It collects its own web in the form of a ball & swallows it whole. In the same way we have to loosen the knots of our adversities and become a free-soul. We cannot see these knots due to the darkness of the absurdity of our own minds. Once we decide and awaken our faculties, we would ignite the flame of our wisdom and would be able to open all the knots and set ourselves free.
