Letting Go

Overcoming Negative Influences

Question: How can we stop the negative influence of people who are close to us and enable them to change their thinking pattern? Answer: This is a curious question. I don’t know if you have ever made the attempt to change anyone.  I don’t believe I have met anyone who has been successful in that effort.  In fact, it is possible to expend a great deal of time and energy in such pursuits, without getting any success. If you feel someone is having a [...]

The Power of Tolerance

There are different situations that come in life where the power to tolerate is necessary. One is bad words and assault from others, one is when it comes to trying to establish the truth, one is discontent in small or large matters.Tolerance is required when going through sickness. If you speak about a sickness it gets worse. Dadi Janki, the administrative head of the BKs, says we should always say “I’m well” as a soul and the body will [...]

The Story of Prajapita Baba, the Father of the People

On 18th January here at the Brahma Kumaris we celebrated the day of Prajapita Baba (or Brahma Baba), the Father of the people. This is the day which he left his mortal coil. He was an extremely pure soul and very faithful to God. He had excellent leadership qualities and was also a great visionary. He was a very royal soul with an excellent character. I always feel inspired by this incredible super hero who was full of courage [...]

New Beginnings

The month of January is a time for making New Year’s resolutions. One of my goals this year is not to miss early morning meditation. My role model is Brahma Baba. This soul used to wake up at 1am to do meditation every day for 34 years without fail. It is good to set goals and aspire to be better. If we don’t aim high then how can we achieve? They say it takes 21 days to make a new [...]

Having a pure attitude, pure thoughts and pure actions will create good karma for you. Behave as though you [...]

Full of all virtues

Right now I am focusing on being full of all virtues and full of all powers.  I think self-respect is the most important as it will clear all other obstacles and if you can see your own good qualities you will be happy all the time. All virtues can be obtained from staying peaceful in any situation. With the virtue of peace all other virtues are developed. To stay peaceful, one technique is soul consciousness. Another powerful technique is God [...]

Overcoming personality clashes with others

I find myself sometimes peaceless due to personality clashes with other souls. I have had some negative experiences due to my own thinking. This can cause the mind to get stuck on one channel. I am now learning to be more mature in handling situations. I have learned that it is best not to get involved in other peoples issues. The cleanest and safest way to help others is by sending them good vibrations. The world really needs that right [...]

Forgiveness as a key to a healthy life

Being healthy nowadays is a kind of a fashion, and it shouldn’t be like that: health makes life much more pleasant and productive. It should be one of our first priorities. Let’s understand that health is not restricted to the body though; it also implies a life with no “dis-eases” in mind, relationships and even finances. After all, we have experienced how much a lack of money at a moment of need affects the will to live. So, being healthy cannot [...]

10 Best Steps on Overcoming Anger

  Recognising First Signs Don’t do anything. Don’t act on the angry feeling. This is just an emotion. You can feel it without turning it into a behaviour.

There’s nothing wrong with anger, it’s only a signal that you’re in pain. It’s only a problem when you act on [...]
