When you talk to yourself in your mind, which self do you address? And how? Usually people do not talk to their divinity, but to the most superficial aspects of their everyday personality. And often it’s a stream of fears, complaints and a mindless repetition of old things. If we talked that way to another human being, we would have to apologise.

Learning to talk properly to the self is a spiritual endeavour. Thoughts from the past and worries about the future do not create good conversation. Instead learn to talk to your mind as if it were a child. Talk to it with love. If you just force a child to sit down, he won’t. A good mother knows how to prompt her child into doing what she wants. Be a good mother to your mind, teach it good, positive thoughts so that when you tell it to sit quietly, it will.

Love your mind. Stay happy.

If I limit the love I give to just one or two, it will eventually go stale.

If I learn to create love inside my heart and silently give it to everyone I meet, love will grace every corner of my life.

Good feeling for others are like ointments that heal wounds and re-establish friendship and relationships.

Good feelings are generated in the mind, are transmitted through your attitude and are reflected in your eyes and smile.

Smiling opens the heart and a glance can make miracles happen.

If your mind has any limited desires, they will not allow you to become content. When you are walking in the sun, your shadow goes ahead of you and if you try to catch it, you won’t be able to. When you turn around, your shadow will follow you. In the same way, desires attract you and make you cry. Let go of them and they will follow you. Those who ask for something can never become full and complete. To chase any limited desire is like trying to catch a mirage.

When I notice a weakness or mistake in someone, instead of drawing attention to it by speaking to others, I need to make a special effort to focus on something positive in that person.

When i think about this person’s good qualities, my love for them will grow.

When I speak about the weaknesses of others, it spreads from one person to the next.

Instead of speaking, I have to merge it into love. This then sends blessings to others, which helps them to improve.

They do not come to stop you. They come to strengthen you and help you progress with more experience.

Keep advancing.

One day is not the same as another.

Sometimes you do not have to find a solution, it is enough to keep moving forward, leaving the obstacle behind.

Why do you go to work – for the pay or to play? Money takes the L out of PLAY and we forget that life is just a game. The game is just an exchange and interplay of energies, a divine dance. You give the energy of your head and hands, and you receive money in return. Misery comes when you live only to receive. This is how we kill the fun in life. Every scene in our life is a game requiring certain skills and abilities to play it well. When you do, and you taste success at playing, you’re having fun again. Put the L back in PAY, and watch work transform itself into a game, a dance. Go to play, not for the pay. Pay is just a bonus!

If I am not getting what I want or need, I may need to adopt a different approach. Instead of focusing on my own desires, I need to understand that perhaps I’m not getting what I want for a reason – perhaps I’m not ready for it yet. If I concentrate instead on what I have to give to others, I will find that what I need comes to me naturally.

I need to recognize that like musical notes we are all different. Only when I am able to harmonize with others can i create a beautiful tune. When I work with other people, I learn to understand them. In the process, I will also learn more about myself and how to use my strengths to support others.

First of all, understand discontentment. Discontent is caused by a constant multiplication of desires.

One desire leads to another until there’s never a moment when you feel fulfilled.

Desires are like traps.

Because of endless desires relationships have become very fragile. There is a lot of irritability and anger due to:

• Selfish attachments (to possessions and people)

• Pride (attachment to a particular image of the self)

When there is discontentment, the heart can never be still because wasteful, negative thoughts destroy peace.

Contentment is the result of spiritual awareness which allows you to recognise negativity. It changes your pattern of thinking. As you tap your huge inner potential, all desires are fulfilled and you regain your peace.
