The Attitude of Gratitude

The Attitude of Gratitude pictureThe attitude of gratitude is one of the easiest ways to think positive.

We can experience gratitude at every stage of the day:

  • After waking up, thanks for a wonderful new day
  • Before meals; thanks to God, farmers & everyone involved in bringing this food to me
  • Whenever meeting someone, thanks for their help & support always
  • When using objects, thanks for their utility always
  • Before sleeping, thanks for a lovely day

There are numerous more aspects we can feel thankful about:

  • Thanks to God for everything
  • Thanks to the mind body & all organs, for being there always
  • Thanks to our parents, family, teachers, friends, colleagues, neighbors, etc for their invaluable role in our lives
  • Thanks to those who gave our 1st job, helped us during important milestones of life, etc
  • Thanks to the past, for all the good & favourable incidents

Benefits of Gratitude:

  • It’s one of the easiest techniques of remaining happy
  • It’s a way to see the positive side of things, hence keeps us content
  • Radiates positive vibrations towards whom we’re grateful, making our relations beautiful

Hence, let’s keep emerged the attitude of gratitude the whole day today! And don’t forget to share your experiences in the comments below!

In fact, would highly recommend listing down 10-15 points which you personally feel grateful about in your life. It’ll be a wonderful experience, I assure you!

Looking at Virtues of all

Looking at Virtues pictureEveryone knows we should look at virtues rather than weaknesses. It’s actually for our benefit, since looking at virtues makes us the 1st to feel good inside. Indeed, if we make it a strong practice of looking at 1 virtue of each soul we come in interaction with, then it very easily keeps our state of mind elevated throughout the day!

Hence, an excellent practice is to make a list of 2-3 specialities of each soul we come in regular contact with (ie family, colleagues, neighbours). Then, keep these specialities in awareness, whenever we interact with them!

This has numerous benefits:

  • Keeps our state of mind very light, and our behaviour & words very sweet
  • Makes our interaction successful ie full of good wishes & blessings
  • Radiates positive vibrations to them, improving our relations
  • Creates a beautiful atmosphere around

Hence today, let’s look at virtues of each soul we interact with. And don’t forget to share your experiences in the comments below!

Examples of Specialities in others:

  • Pure, Innocent, Sweet, Enthusiastic
  • Honest, Sincere, Punctual, Responsible
  • Caring, Supportive, Helpful

Indeed, like a swan always inculcates pearls, let’s become a spiritual holy swan who sees only virtues!

Good luck!

Previous Post: The Seat of Self Respect

The Seat of Self Respect

The Seat of Self Respect pictureWe hear the words self respect, self confidence, etc often these days.

Note these all start with the word self, hence their experience depends on our definition of self. Thus, if our definition of self respect is based on temporary aspects (like looks, position, etc), it’ll keep fluctuating. Instead, basing it on permanent eternal truths keeps it very strong & stable.

Examples:

  • I’m unique with many specialities, none can perform my role better than me
  • I am God’s child, all His virtues & powers belong to me
  • I’m a victorious jewel, success is my birthright
  • I’m originally a very pure, divine, peaceful, loving, happy & powerful soul
  • I’m God’s angel, sharing happiness with all
  • I’m the hero actor of this world drama

Hence, let’s select one of these self respect points, and keep it in awareness for the next hour. We could even continue this practice throughout the day, or take different self respect points for each hour. And don’t forget to share your experiences (or queries) in the comments below!

Benefits of Self Respect

  • When in self-respect, we automatically give respect to others, see their virtues, encourage them forward, etc
  • We remain protected from negative influence
  • Our confidence & efficiency at work automatically increases
  • etc

Hence, best wishes for the next hour!

Spiritual Inspirations from Chartered Accountants (CA Day)

Spiritual Inspirations from Chartered Accountants (CA Day) pictureTomorrow 1st July is CA Day. Hence today, let’s take some wonderful spiritual inspirations from Chartered Accountants!

Experiencing the most illustrious life!

CAs get lots of opportunities in numerous fields… Similarly, the present time gives us the best opportunity of building a most elevated stage of mind, full of the experience of peace, love & joy!

Many keep the word CA in front of their name‚Ķ Similarly, let’s always keep God’s name in front of our name ie direct all the praise towards Him!

The word CA matches with BA (ie Bachelor of Arts)… ¬†Hence, let’s keep singing songs of God’s love, and dancing in supersensuous joy & happiness, to paint our most illustrious fortune!

Some CAs work as income tax officers‚Ķ Hence, let’s keep a strict check on ourselves, to ensure we don’t create even a single negative or waste thought!

Many CAs take up a salaried job in big companies… Similarly, our 1st job (ie responsibility) in life is to maintain an elevated state of mind always, which automatically makes all our other responsibilities very easy & natural‚Ķ ie we keep earning the salary of the experience of peace love & joy!

Like we keep a Suspense A/C, let’s suspend (ie keep postponing) thinking of waste matters, to finish their influence on us!

Keeping harmonious relationships!

The difference between an accountant & Chartered Accountant, is that the CA is recognized by law‚Ķ Similarly, rather than needing to justify that we’re good or right, let’s earn the certificate of contentment from everyone around!

Many CAs operate consultancy firms‚Ķ Hence, let’s also keep some time spare to allow others to consult us, for seeking solutions to their problems!

CAs have white collared jobs ie CAs work in air-conditioned offices, and do intellectual work on computers… Similarly serving & benefitting others (on God’s elevated directions) is the most white-collared job, since it boosts our stage immensely‚Ķ And we work under the very soothing air-conditioner of God’s virtues, just sharing His knowledge with all!

Enhancing the Balance Sheet of Life!

CAs need to have very good knowledge of income tax & GST (ie Sales Tax) laws‚Ķ Similarly, this whole society is governed by one major law, The Law of Karma‚Ķ Hence, let’s always keep it in awareness, to keep creating our most illustrious destiny at every step!

The Golden rule for Real A/Cs is ‚ÄėDebit what comes in, Credit what goes out‚Äô… Hence, whatever situation people & health issues that come into our life are just a return of past karma‚Ķ And whatever thoughts words & actions we create now are our present karma, which’ll return in the future!

The Golden Rule for Personal A/Cs is ‚ÄėDebit the Receiver, Credit the Giver‚Äô… Hence, let’s always keep giving to all, to earn the credits of blessings & elevated karma!

The Golden Rule for Nominal A/Cs is ‚ÄėDebit the expenses, Credit the income‚Äô… Hence while serving others does require a little bit of energy (ie debit), but it boosts our stage immensely & also earns us lots of blessings (ie credits), hence pushing us into a very high net credit balance!

The journal basically consists of numerous journal entries… Similarly, every thought word & action we create is an entry in the journal of life!

Costs & Income are recorded as & when they’re accrued (ie become due) rather than when paid‚Ķ Similarly, every karma we create definitely gets accrued on us, even though it’s result (ie payment) may arise at a later date‚Ķ Hence, let’s always keep full attention on our every karma, to ensure a most perfect & spotless destiny!

The balance sheet on 1st April (ie 1st day of the financial year) is the same as the balance sheet on 31st April (ie last day of previous financial year)… Similarly, a newborn child is like a 1st April Balance Sheet, who brings with him all sanskars & karmic accounts from the previous births‚Ķ Hence, let’s always do the most elevated karma, to ensure a must illustrious next birth!

The ledger is basically a collection of numerous individual accounts‚Ķ Hence, let’s ensure our ledger of life (consisting of all our karmic accounts) is full of only credit balances!

Best Practices

The software package ‚ÄėTally‚Äô is used by many CAs‚Ķ Similarly, let’s keep tallying (ie verifying) our actions with God’s elevated directions, to experience the most perfect & balanced life always!

An account consists of debit side & also credit side‚Ķ Hence in the account of life, let’s keep debiting our weaknesses, & keep crediting divine virtues!

Many pass the CA exams on first attempt‚Ķ Similarly, let’s remain so full with the power of spiritual knowledge & meditation, that we pass all papers (ie challenges) that may come, with flying colors!

CAs can get a job in any one of many different departments ex Accounts, Audit, Risk Management, etc‚Ķ Similarly, whatever role we’ve received in this drama of life, let’s enact it so beautifully that we (& all others) end up saying ‚ÄėOnce More!‚Äô, seeing the most wonderful quality of our life!

The Profit & Loss A/C shows the income & expenditure incurred over the previous year‚Ķ Similarly, let’s check our emotional profits & losses earned every single day, to keep progressing fast ahead!

Accounting & Auditing is basically done for Reporting‚Ķ Similarly, let’s audit & report how our day went, to God every night‚Ķ With a true heart, to earn His blessings, which makes everything easy!

Depreciation is a charge applied on fixed assets‚Ķ Hence, let’s keep depreciating (ie finishing) our old sanskars of sorrow, through a regular practice of spiritual knowledge & meditation!

Role of Spirituality!

The word CA matches with DA (ie Dearness Allowance)… Similarly, let’s always remain in God’s elevated company (ie dear to God), to keep experiencing the DA of God’s virtues & powers!

The word CA matches with PA (ie Personal Assistant)… Hence considering that God at the present times is offering us to ‚ÄėUse Him‚Äô‚Ķ Let’s make God our PA & keep calling Him frequently to do our tasks, hence making each & every aspect of our life very simple, easy & natural!

CAs play a crucial role in the proper economic functioning of a nation‚Ķ Similarly, each & every one us is most important in God’s task of world transformation‚Ķ Hence, considering the fact that God is making so much efforts for transforming Kaliyuga into Satyuga, let’s give a true helping hand to God by transforming ourselves!

A Joint Venture A/C is created for ventures undertaken jointly by two parties‚Ķ Similarly, let’s create a joint venture between us & God, for serving & benefitting all… Where He’ll play the role of providing us with spiritual knowledge & powers, and we’ll implement the same in practical life!

CAs have many skills‚Ķ Hence, we just need the bhavna (ie pure intention) of wanting to serve God’s task with a true heart, to automatically emerge all the hidden skills & talents within us for doing the same!

Many CAs enter into Limited Liability Partnerships (ie LLPs)… Similarly, God says if you follow my elevated directions, everything in your life is my responsibility (ie we’ve zero liability!)‚Ķ Hence, let’s take advantage of this most divine opportunity, & keep following God’s elevated directions with a lot of love!

To become a CA, we need to study from the Institute of Chartered Accountants‚Ķ Similarly, let’s also visit God’s spiritual institute ie our nearest Brahma Kumaris Rajyoga Meditation Centre‚Ķ For earning the qualification of maintaining an elevated state of mind always, & a life full of divine virtues!

Conclusion

Hence today on CA Day, let’s become a spiritual CA… ie Keep auditing our thoughts words & actions, and keep earning the credits of blessings & good wishes from all‚Ķ This becomes very easy & practical by connecting to our Supreme Father God & His direct spiritual knowledge‚Ķ Hence, ensuring such a powerful Profit & Loss A/C & Balance Sheet of Life, that we end up bringing the divine land Satyuga once again!

Om Shanti!

Accounting involves dealing with lots of numbers… Hence, let’s also take some spiritual inspirations from statistics!

Chartered Accountancy is a Profession‚Ķ Hence, let’s also take some spiritual inspirations from doctors, nurses & firefighters!

CAs are commerce students… Hence, let’s also take some spiritual inspirations from business!

Technology has made the work of CAs very quick & efficient… Hence, you might also like to read my message on Science Day!
