Every kid smiles four hundred times a day.
An adolescent smiles only seventeen times.
An adult does not smile at all,
smiles once in a while.
A smile should be our language.
That something which can unite all of us is
The mind alone is the reason behind bondage
Whether we experience some bondage or attachment,
or whether we feel free, the reason for this is the
mind. So we have to train the mind again and again.
Shake everything off yourself, just wake up and see –
Everything is nothing, that’s it.
This very realization is enough for wisdom to dawn within you.
, so that it gets instilled in your memory.
When you see all of life as a leela,
then nothing in this world can shake you,
or bring any sort of negativity.
When you have this feeling,
then nothing will ever be able to dim
the light within you.
When you speak the truth, then a great power dawns within you.
When you speak lies,
then even the muscles of your body lose all their strength.
Honesty is a power in itself. Truth is a power by itself.
The first is faith in yourself.
The second is having faith in the fact there are good people in the society, and there is goodness around you.
The third kind of faith is faith in the one Supreme power.
When the mind is clogged with too much ambition and too many desires,
it will definitely give rise to depression.
The mind goes down because it loses all its energy in
just thinking and thinking, and dreaming, and wishing for this and that.
People of less wisdom see others' mistakes as big and their own as small.
People of little more wisdom see their own mistakes as big and others' mistakes as small.
People of all wisdom see the mistakes as neither theirs nor the others'.
They see mistakes as a happening which nobody can control.
These are the three degrees, that is all.
Less wisdom: my mistake is nothing, others' mistake is big.
Little more wisdom: my mistake is very big, other’s mistake is small.
True wisdom: Mistake is neither mine, not others. It's a happening.
There is disharmony in life because of stress, restlessness, and feverishness from cravings and aversions in the mind.
To get rid of these negativities,
we all should listen to some music for a few minutes every day.
Weakness or fear is the root of violence.
Stress is also a kind of weakness.
Stress or tiredness and no strength is weakness and causes violence.
Lack of awareness of one’s strength causes violence.
It is not necessary that the ego should increase with an increase in independence or with self- sufficiency.
We should understand that in spite of being self sufficient, we are dependent on God.
