There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.

*********************

Make an effort to prepare your projects or assignments early, and avoid procrastination.

Q:  What is the solution to an ego clash?

Guruji :

When egos are there, they do clash. There is no way out. When there is wisdom, you will rise above any small-minded attitude, bickering and judgements.

You judge people all the time, and if you turn back and look at your own judgements, I tell you, 80 to 90% of the time, they will be wrong. Sometimes people send some messages and before the other person gets it, they retract it. How many of you have done that? You type a message to send to someone, and something tells you that this is not okay and so you retract it. How many of you do this? This shows how poor your judgements are.

We create a huge cloud around what is not even close to truth, and it has happened to you so many times in the past. You hold grudges against people, you have concepts about people and you get yourself trapped into it. You must wake up from this. You know, if your time is good, your worst enemy behaves like a friend, and if your times are bad, your closest friend behaves like an enemy. So, your luck or time is totally responsible for your friends and enemies. Your karma is responsible for what you go through. So, you should take your mind away from judging others and bring it to yourself.

Often people who complain that others have a big ego, have a big ego themselves. Often those who complain others are rude, you will see somewhere inside, they are rude. You should reflect on yourself. See, you can’t correct others but others give you a chance to correct yourself.

If you are going around thinking about somebody feeling hateful, angry, revengeful and all that, it is your strong craving for something, or aversion to something which is making you do this. You better get on to doing some seva. I tell you, it will definitely help you.

*********************

The sweetest time of the day is when you pray. Because you are talking to the one who loves you the most.

Top 10 Healthy Drinks To Loose Weight

Top 10 Healthy Drinks To Loose Weight

When it comes to weight loss, substituting healthy drinks for those sugary sodas and energy drinks can have a drastic effect on your weight loss goals. Most people don’t realize how many calories they take in each day from drinks alone. For instance, a caffe mocha with all the fixings can pack in over 500 calories! So as you can see, switching to healthier drinks and ditching the “junk drinks” will greatly reduce your daily caloric intake and in return start shredding those unwanted pounds. Check out this list of the top 10 healthy drinks that can help you reach your weight loss goals…

  1. Vegetable Juice

Vegetable juice is every bit as nutritious as fruit juice but with about half the calories. Most vegetable juices are also rich in fiber which can help make you feel full and in turn eat less.

  1. Fruit Smoothies

Mix-up a delicious batch of smoothies using your favorite fruits and a little bit of skim milk. Do not consume smoothies with added sugar, whipped cream, honey, or other sweeteners that can add hundreds of calories-in other words, don’t eat smoothies from your favorite local restaurant or ice-cream shop and think that you’re eating healthy because you’re not!

  1. Fruit Juice

Fruit juices have loads of vitamins and nutrients, but it’s important to make sure that there’s no added sugar…sorry Sunny D and Tang! Also remember that the pulpier, the better. Fruit juice with lots of pulp contains added fiber that can help you feel more full and eat less.

  1. Black Coffee

Coffee has plenty of positive health benefits and best of all, it contains no calories! Black coffee is rich in antioxidants that can help boost your mood, improve concentration, reduce the risk of diabetes and cancer, as well as many other benefits. Keep you coffee consumption at 4 cups or less per day-as with anything, moderation is the key.

  1. Green Tea

Like coffee, green tea has a plethora of positive health benefits and contains plenty of helpful antioxidants. It also helps to boost your metabolism if consumed on a daily basis, which can help to speed up your body’s fat-burning mechanism-as much as a 40% increase in some cases!

  1. Milk

The calcium in Low-fat or skim milk can help contribute to the breakdown of fat cells in your body. Too much milk, though, can pack on the pounds because it does contain a lot of calories, so stick to 3-4 small servings per day in order to benefit from milk’s weight loss benefits.

  1. Protein Drinks

Protein drinks, such as from powders or pre-mixed varieties, can have a great effect on your weight loss regiment, because lean muscle is very efficient at burning fat. In other words, the more muscle you have, the more fat your body will burn. Protein is a big part of this equation, because it’s the building block of muscle growth.

  1. Fiber Drinks

There’s many fiber-rich drinks on the market today, and they can be a great tool for any weight loss program. Fiber helps to make your body feel full, and it also has plenty of other positive health benefits as well.

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Sounds a little gross, and it may be too gross for some people to try, but apple cider vinegar is a sort-of “old school” health drink that was very popular in the ’70s as a weight loss tool. Although there aren’t any scientific studies that actually prove it works, many fitness gurus swear by it, saying that it greatly boosts your metabolism if taken regularly…Hey, it’s worth a try!

  1. Ice Water

Probably the most powerful weight loss tool at your disposal, and also the cheapest, is plain old ice water (who’d a thunk!). Drinking plenty of water is great for your body because it helps you feel full, boosts your metabolism, and it contains zero calories. Furthermore, some studies suggest that drinking just two extra glasses of ice water per day can help boost your metabolism by as much as 30%. This equates to about 5 pounds of fat loss per year!

Corporate Excellence And Work Ethics

12065814_894712907279226_7825808114624078854_n

Life has become one gigantic game. To succeed in this game, we have to struggle. This struggle is consuming our life silently.

Do not discard success because of the simple reason that the creative process which is installed in your DNA, has to be allowed to express itself. Creativity has to be encouraged. But in this process, if you are not alert, your inner joy will be destroyed. Hence, make sure that your commitment for corporate excellence is based on the foundation of work ethics.

Ethics is not some set of rules based on laws. Ethics is based on goodness. Goodness is not bound by one’s definition; it is like intelligence; it is free flowing, but has its intrinsic wisdom. Ethics is order and action born out of goodness. Goodness in action mode is ethics. It is an indicator of health to be ethical in an unethical society.

An ethical process is order in motion and hence immensely crucial in the corporate world. An important aspect of being altruistic is a high degree of integrity. From a spiritual dimension, it is integrating the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual aspects. Abusing the body is unethical. Abusing it through wrong behaviour, junk food … is to harm the body. When the body is abused, it affects the mind. When one drinks alcohol, one is damaging not only the body but also the mind, is it not? Once the mind is affected one’s perception is also affected. So handling one’s body involves right food and right posture.

Right posture is keeping one’s body alive and vibrant. Good body energy has the power to do right things. Like in sports, a right posture will help one to perform.

Next is emotional health. Enthusiasm brings you alive and that power enables you to do the right things. Next is intellectual health, which means being part of a solution and not victim to a problem. Lastly, the focus should be on spiritual health, which involves operating from right values. This involves self-discipline. A value is a value if the value of the value is valuable to one. So, let ethical values be terribly dear and valuable to one.

Operating as a team and not as an individual should be a corporate value; this is corporate ethics. TEAM means Together, Empowering to Achieve More. One has to learn to drop self-love and love one’s organisation, and hence the team. Self-love is the mother of all conflicts.

Reflect on this.

“Who is flying the kite?”

The egoistic person says, “I am flying the kite.”

The breeze says, “I am flying the kite.”

The tail of the kite says, “I am flying the kite.”

The string says, “I am flying the kite.”

Existence says, “O child, we are flying the kite.”

The value of the team is supremely beneficial, and that is possible if one’s love is not restricted to the self but to the whole. This ethical mode, apart from felicitating those who reach and/or surpass their targets, should be valued and respected in the organisation.

Such a value, spontaneously brings in, the power to give, the power to contribute and the power to serve. One should not only contribute to each other in a team but also to the customer. This customer care is not just in manipulative words and smiles, but stems from the value of truly contributing.

Strength Of Mind For Spiritual Awareness

12243562_894713213945862_6249489467153836880_n

Cultivate spiritual awareness. Swami Sivananda has said, “The aim of human life is not God-realisation; rather, it is the cultivation of spiritual awareness.” How far you are able to go, does not matter. Do not think about one hundred per cent; try to obtain even half a per cent of spiritual awareness in your life and you will have obtained everything. When the mind is free from its sensorial, mundane and external attachments, then, it cultivates its own strength.

Three strengths

There are three strengths of the mind: iccha shakti, will power; jnana shakti, knowledge power; kriya shakti, creative power. Even now you have these three within you; however, you are not utilising them, as there is a dissipation of mental faculties and energies. Similarly, for example, when a bulb is turned on, the light spreads in all directions, it is dissipated. The light is there, no doubt, but there is no force in that light.

But, if you were able to focus the power of light to a single point, it becomes a laser beam and thus gains in strength. You can apply that laser beam to cut through metal, perform optical nerve surgery, and so on. It is this focussing of mental perceptions that you attain in dharana, which leads to the development of willpower, iccha shakti, and the mind gains its true strength and its true character.

How the mind, the ego or intellect works, we do not know, and we should not bother about it. We must know how we can handle the situations, circumstances and conditions that alter our perspective of ourselves.

Once the mind becomes as powerful as alaser beam, knowledge also becomes focussed. Right now all the knowledge that you have acquired is dissipated, but when it is focussed, it becomes jnana shakti. The simplest way to understand jnana shakti is as the quality of understanding. I believe the greatest strength in the world is not love, as many people say. Love is not astrength, nor is compassion or sympathy. The highest quality of life is understanding.

Root of life

If you can understand situations, if you can understand life, then all the best qualities flower spontaneously within you without any effort. Understanding is the root of life that has to be watered daily. Love, compassion and the other sattvic qualities are flowers and fruit of the tree of life, which you can admire and enjoy, but understanding is the root of the tree of life. Therefore, ensure that you give water and compost to that root of life on a regular basis. Protect the root of life from the insects and rodents that nibble away at it, which are not visible, being underground.

Highest quality

The highest quality that anyone can have in life is understanding. Everything else falls into place after that. If there is no understanding, you can be going gaga with love and that will not help at all. That love will have no meaning for you, that compassion will have no meaning for you.

Cultivate understanding. With the cultivation of understanding, that is, with jnana shakti, kriya shakti becomes predominant. And with that kriya shakti, creative and harmonious interaction between the individual and the world arises.

किसी शायरने मौत को क्या खुब कहा है

किसी शायरने मौत को क्या खुब कहा है;
.
. .. जिंदगी मे २ मिनट कोई मेरे पास ना बैठा.. , आज मेरे पास बैठे जा रहे थे.. .
.
. .. कोई तौफा ना मिला आज तक.. , और आज फुल-हि-फुल दिये जा रहे थे.. .
.
. .. तरस गये थे हम किसी एक हाथ के लिये.. , और आज कंधे पे कंधे दिये जा रहे थे.. .
.
. .. दो कदम साथ चलने को तैयार न था कोई.. , और आज काफिला बन साथ चले जा रहे थे.. .
.
. .. आज पता चला मुझे कि “मौत” कितनी हसिन होती है.. . कम्बख्त. . . हम तो युहि ‘जिंदगी’ जिये जा रहे थे.. .

Importance of Positive Vibrations

We convey very little through words, we convey more through our vibrations, and each one of us carries a lot of vibrations. It is vibrations that make us become friends or enemies, and it is vibrations that make things happen or not!

We all want to have positive vibrations, but somehow we get caught up in the mind; we get caught up in the past. Then what happens? Our vibrations become negative and stressful. Anger, love, all these emotions are conveyed by our vibrations.

Breathing techniques, meditation, all these are aimed to make our vibrations positive.
==================

The moment you become aware and realize your inner true Self, I tell you, all fears and negativity simply disappear.
====================
Everything comes and goes in this world. Nothing stays. We have come to this planet now and we will also leave one day, and those who have already left this world will return to it someday. This is how the cycle of worldly life is.
==================
Q: Ego, misunderstandings and doubts have destroyed my relationship. What is the secret of loving relationships?

Guruji: Just be natural and accept people. Love is always about giving. Know that you have come here (on the planet) to only give love and not demand love from anybody.
====================
Q: Why does a desire arise? Where does it come from? What is the purpose?

Guruji: All desires have got one goal, and that is happiness. If a desire brings unhappiness, it has not reached its goal. The goal of desires is to bring happiness. So, that is the purpose. Where does it come from? It comes when you are not aware of your Being, your Self. Desire is your wanting to stay in the moment. Desire is to experience joy. Joy is only in the moment. And when you are in the moment, there is no desire. When you are joyful, when you are satisfied, there is no burning desire at that time.

Why Postpone Happiness to Tomorrow?

Every living creature wants to be happy. Whether it is money, power or sex, you get into it for the sake of happiness. Some people even enjoy misery because it gives them happiness!

To be happy, you seek something. But despite getting it, you are not happy. A school-going boy thinks that if he goes to college, he will be more independent, free and, therefore, happy. If you ask a college-going boy whether he is happy, he feels that if he gets a job, he will be happy.

Talk to somebody who is settled in his job or business, and you will find that he is waiting to get a perfect soul- mate to be happy. He gets a soul-mate, but he now wants a kid to be happy. Ask those who have children if they are happy. And they say: how can they relax until the children have grown up and have had a good education and are on their own? Ask those who are retired and done with all their responsibilities if they are happy?

They long for the days when they were younger.

All of one’s life is spent in preparing to be happy someday in the future. It’s like making a bed all night, but having no time to sleep in it. How many minutes, hours and days of your life have you spent being happy from within? Those are the only moments you have really lived life. Those were perhaps the days when you were a small kid, completely blissful and happy or a few moments when you were surfing, swimming or sailing or on a mountain top, living in the present and enjoying it.

There are two ways of looking at life. One is thinking: “I’ll be happy after achieving a certain objective.” The second is saying: “I am happy come what may!” Which one do you want to live by? Life is 80 per cent joy and 20 per cent misery. But you hold on to the 20 per cent and make it 200 per cent ! It is not a conscious act, it just happens. Living in the moment with joy, alertness, awareness and compassion is enlightenment. Being like a child is enlightenment. It is being free from within, feeling at home with everybody, without barriers.

Don’t judge and don’t worry about what others think of you. Whatever they think, it is not permanent. Your own opinion about things and people keeps changing all the time. So why worry about what others think about you? Worrying takes a toll on the body, mind, intellect and alertness. It is like an obstruction that takes you far away from yourself. It brings fear and fear is nothing but a lack of love. It is an intense sense of isolation.

This can be handled by relaxing and doing some breathing exercises. Then you will realise that you are loved, you are a part of everybody and you are a part of the whole universe.” This will liberate you and the mind will take a complete shift. You will then find so much harmony around.

To find harmony, it is not as if you have to physically seek it by sitting somewhere for years. Whenever you are in love, your mind is in the present, you feel joyous. At some level, to some degree, everybody is meditating without being aware of it. There are moments when your body, mind and breath are all in harmony. That’s when you achieve yoga. The art of living lies in the present moment.
