Sadhana - Spiritual practices

PEACE is your nature, yet you remain restless.
FREEDOM is your nature, yet you remain in bondage.
HAPPINESS is your nature, yet you become miserable for some reason or other
CONTENTMENT is your nature, yet you continue to reel in desires.
BENEVOLENCE is your nature, yet you do not reach out.
moving towards your nature is sadhana.
Sadhana is becoming what you truly are!
Your true nature is Shiva
And Shiva is peace, infinity, beauty and the non-dual One.
Ratri means "to take refuge" Shivaratri is taking refuge in Shiva.

If you think...

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.

Walter D. Wintle

Promise yourself

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can
disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to
every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel like there is
something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your
optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best,
and expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the
greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give
every living person you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, and too
strong for fear, and to happy to permit the
presence of trouble.

Focus on the Lesson

I have a friend who every time
I had a problem, dilemma or minor crisis would say - -
"Focus on the lesson.
Ask yourself what am I
being shown here"

Every person in this life
has something to teach me --
and as soon as I accept that,
I open myself to truly listening

For everyone that makes you cry,
there are three to make you smile,
And a smile will last a long, long time,
but a tear for just a little while.

Don't let someone who hates the world
cause you to hate it too,
Behind the clouds is a Golden sun,
and a sky that's full of Blue.

If someone said a thing that's cruel,
don't let it get to you.
Your achievements are greatly numbered,
and your faults are very few.

So if a certain person should act a certain way,
Think of those who Love You,
And don't let it spoil your day!
Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul.
Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.

Silence Please..

Before we can lead, we must serve....
Before we can serve, we must prepare....
Before we can prepare, we must learn....
Before we can learn, we must listen....
Before we can listen, we must be silent !!!

Gurudev says......."Observe some moments of Silence before & after the completion of any job"

When people consider the past as free will they are filled with remorse and regret.

When they consider the future as destiny, lethargy and inertia set in.

A wise person will consider the past as destiny and the future as free will.

When you consider the past as destiny, no more questions are raised and the mind is at ease.

And when you consider the future as free will you are filled with enthusiasm and dynamism.

Of course there will be some uncertainty when you consider the future as free will, and some anxiety, but it can also bring alertness and creativity.

Consider the past as destiny, the future as free will and the present moment as Divinity.

Wake up and Transcend

The foolish one uses the spiritual power to gain material comfort.

An intelligent one uses the material world to rise high in the spirit.

When you transcend the intellect you allow yourself to be used by the spirit.

One who is awake neither uses anything nor loses anything.

Become intelligent, transcend and wake up.
