Note: This is the last post of the ā€˜Positive Thinkingā€˜ series

Related: Benefits of Positive Thinking

We have looked at various ways to think positiveā€¦ Like enhancing self respect, having gratitude, looking at virtues, giving good wishes, etcā€¦ Then, keeping attention on our thoughts & overcomingĀ guilt, hurry, jealousy, angerā€¦ And finally, dealing with the past, situations, people (and forgive & forget)

Most importantly, we have seen & experienced that daily listening to spiritual knowledge & meditation are THE only techniques to keep thinking positive throughout the day & throughout life.

And, the most elevated source of information is God’s direct elevated versions (called Murli, which we listen to daily, & is different everyday!)ā€¦. Hence while concluding this series, would highly recommend you to do the free 7 day Rajyoga Meditation Course once (at your nearest Brahma Kumaris Centre), and then attend Murli class regularly for atleast a monthā€¦ You’ll then be easily able to decide on the best future course of action, & become a regular student!

Making meditation easy!

We’ve seen meditation means creating a series of elevated thoughts. However, since the nature of the mind is it requires newness, if we create the same thoughts daily in meditation, it’ll get bored. Hence, need access to a regular source of new high-quality thoughts to create in meditation, and the best source is the Murli!

Meditation also becomes easy in the very pure environment of the Centre. The resulting easy & powerful experiences we get at the Centre then make our meditation at home powerful too, enabling us to create an equally powerful environment at home too!

Best wishes!

Hope you enjoyed the series ā€˜Positive Thinkingā€˜!

Finding Time for the Self | The Solution to ‘I don’t have Time’

There’re many activities which don’t require the mind at all (during which we can easily pop in our headphones & listen to a spiritual session!)… Like:

  • Travel Time
  • Eating food, cooking food
  • Getting ready in the morning
  • Walking from one place to anotherĀ 

In addition, we have lots of time on weekends & holidays (like today!)

And compared to the time given, we save much much more time during the day (Like investing Rs. 100 & getting back Rs. 1,000!)… Because:

  • Our efficiency increases, due to the increased energy within!
  • Concentration improves (due to less waste thoughts), enabling us to do more in less time
  • Sleep quality improves, hence we require less hours of sleep

Thus it’s all about priorities, rather than time. Hence, let’s make the intelligent decision of giving priority to empowering our mind (even if for just 15-20 minutes daily), which makes all other aspects of our life very simple, easy & natural!

Best wishes!
