BRAHMA KUMARIS chart out a simple list of freebies that we must all aim to acquire to feel good about ourselves
Health and wisdom go hand in hand. They are like body and soul. One focuses on the physical aspect while the other focuses on the mental aspect. A healthy mind leads to a healthy body. Wisdom in your thoughts, feelings and actions can decide the way you shape your life. The more aware you are, the better it is for you. There is a lot of wisdom already inside us about the outer world. It’s now time to move inwards and change.
Patience: Strongest Weapon
Patience is often the key to being successful, but patience without zero action towards achieving your goal can be called procrastination. The law of attraction works when you do things along with creating the right thoughts. Having patience is a virtue but only if you are headed in the right direction.
Faith: Your Best Security
Faith moves mountains. The first important aspect is to have faith in the Self. If you lack this, then it won’t matter even if the entire world has faith in you. The faith to do the right things, faith in your family members, faith in your colleagues, faith in the people around you and specially faith in God. He always knows what is best for us.
Laughter: World’s Best Medicine
Laughter is the best medicine. But most people seem to have very few laughing moments in life these days. That’s because we have lost our spontaneity. Most of us have become copies. Our personality is now 90 per cent influenced and 10 per cent of what we actually are. That apart, we look at every situation seriously, thereby missing out on the lighter side. Spending some time with kids and laughing at your own mistakes may help revive it.
Love: Greatest Force
Jesus Christ said that God is love. Charlie Chaplin said that love is very powerful. Mother Teresa worked with poor communities with a lot of love which allowed people to open up to her and help her with community service. Where there is love, happiness and wealth come automatically. God’s and Mother’s love is the purest form of love and each one of us should learn that.
Hope in God: Life’s Surest Assurance
The irony of the human world is that we turn to God only in times of despair or when we need something. If we can be connected to God even in happier times, we will be focused on our karma and on God, who, in turn, would keep guiding us towards doing the right karma. The reason why we always approach God in hopeless situations is because he is our Spiritual Father and we are his children. Let’s share with him everything just as we do with our human father.
Brahma Kumaris is the largest spiritual organisation in the world led by women. It was the founder, Prajapita Brahma Baba, who chose to put women in the forefront. Founded in India in 1937, Brahma Kumaris has spread to over 140 countries and has had an extensive impact in many sectors as an international NGO. However, their real commitment is to helping individuals transform their perspective of the world from material to spiritual.
