Spiritually Serving Others | The Joy of Giving quotes

One of the greatest happiness is in spiritually serving others i.e., sharing our peace, love & joy with all. Because:

  • When we give love, respect, etc to others, that energy is first created inside us… Hence, we’re the 1st to feel good inside!
  • By giving we get the blessings from all… And this flow of very pure & positive energy coming towards us boosts our stage immensely!
  • The law of Karma implies that if we give happiness to others, it returns back to us manifold!
  • Seeing our actions benefit others is the greatest source of happiness
  • Since giving is an original nature of the soul, it (i.e., giving) keeps us closer to our pure original divine self!

Conclusion (The Joy of Giving quotes)

Hence like a flowing river, let’s continue the flow of giving to all, since that’s where our true happiness lies!

Going Beyond Questions | How to overcome Questions | All general knowledge questions and answers

Thinking of too many waste questions (what, why, where, when, how) drains a lot of our energy & happiness… Hence, let’s overcome questions!

How?

Spiritual knowledge provides an answer (to all questions!):

  • We’ve seen numerous times how a seemingly adverse scene (e.x., getting fired from job) turns out to be a boon (the subsequently started business flourishing!)… Hence, the realization ‘Every scene of this world drama is accurate & beneficial‘ is the single answer to all problems!
  • Why me? – It’s an accurate return of past karma (& everyone is facing different such things!), glad it’s over, now let me focus on creating a beautiful present!
  • The awareness ‘I’m the Master of my thoughts & feelings’ finishes dependencies (& hence also unnecessary questions!)
  • Why are they like this? – They’re a soul on a long journey, hence have created many different sanskars (many of which they’re themselves troubled with!)… Hence, let me share goodness with them!

Conclusion (Going Beyond Questions)

Hence, let’s shift from the crooked question mark sign to the simple full stop… To remain at ease, happy & content always!

How to stop comparing yourself to others quote

Going Beyond Comparison | How to stop comparing yourself to others

Comparing with others is the easiest way to become unhappy

So, how to stop comparing yourself to others?

Hence, let’s overcome comparison, by remembering thoughts like:

  • Life is always a bundle of something good & some not-so-good.. And comparison makes us forget the good part!
  • Indeed if we focus on our specialities, they grow & we end up reaching much higher than we had ever thought!
  • In fact, others may be comparing themselves to us, for things which we have more!
  • What we’ve (& they’ve) got is an accurate return of past karma.. Hence even if we want something extra, let’s make our present karma even more beautiful!
  • Comparison directly leads to jealousy & competition, big energy-drainers!

Conclusion (How to stop comparing yourself to others)

Hence let’s adopt the virtues of self-respect, gratitude & contentment to become free from comparison… And to keep experiencing an elevated state of mind & continued progress at every step always!

6 Thoughts on Going Beyond Hurt | How to overcome Hurt feelings

The process!

  • Someone says something to us
  • in response, we create thoughts like:
    • “How could they say this to me?”
    • “Am I like this?”
    • “They always say like this to me”
    • etc
  • These thoughts create the feeling of hurt… And this hurt takes away our happiness!

How to overcome Hurt feelings

Hence, let’s overcome hurt! … By remembering:

  • The main realization “Others can say what they want, but hurt is my creation”… Indeed no one can get inside me, I’m the Creator of my thoughts & feelings
  • They said to me once, but how many times did I tell the same to myself within?
  • If someone’s wrong words can hurt us, why can’t we remember someone’s good words at that time to uplift ourselves?
  • We all know some people around, who keep getting hurt for no apparent reason… This again proves hurt is our own internal creation
  • By remaining hurt, we’re actually reducing our efficiency at work, harmony in other relations, etc
  • Compassion (i.e., the understanding that the other person is in more pain) instantly finishes hurt!… Going beyond expectations also finishes hurt

Conclusion (How to overcome Hurt feelings)

Hence let’s overcome hurt… To remain happy always & keep sharing happiness with all!

5 Thoughts on how to overcome Expectations | Going Beyond Expectations

What are Expectations?

Expectations just means “I’ll be happy, if you do this”… Hence otherwise, I’m unhappy & you’re the cause of my pain!

Hence while it might seem normal to expect, it actually introduces a dependency within, hence doesn’t allow us to remain happy always!

How to overcome Expectations

We can overcome expectations, by remembering thoughts like:

  • When we can’t meet up to others’ expectations always, how can they?
  • We expect based on our background & sanskars, which may not necessarily always be easy & comfortable for them!
  • Indeed sometimes we can expect things from others, which might be completely beyond their imagination!
  • Relations doesn’t mean give & take, it means to only give & give (love, respect, trust, etc)… And the more we give, the more their experience keeps increasing within us, & we remain very full!
  • Expectations directly lead to hurt… Hence, becoming free from expectations automatically keeps us free from hurt!… And there’s no limit to expectations!

Conclusion (How to overcome Expectations)

Hence, let’s shift from expectations to acceptance, to experience a life of peace & happiness always!
