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 Power of Zeal and Enthusiasm

What is the first thought you have when you open your eyes in the morning? Is it a positive thought or a negative one? The first thought you have in the morning will usually determine how your day goes by. I am working on keeping the thought that ‘I am loved’ to make my day go well and develop the power of zeal and enthusiasm. You could also try a point of self respect such as “I am worthy ”. [...]

The power of the soul

“Ninety-five percent of our time is wasted on thinking about others; we go on and on with a string of expectations, which becomes like a hammer of demand on other people’s heads. Take a combination of expectations and demand, and what does it equal? Conflict!” At this time in the world Drama, everybody has some illness of the mind or other and are abusive towards others in some way. If you stay in meditation you can help that soul by [...]

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.

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 [...]

The Way to move away from the Fear of Fear

You’re sitting alone, quietly watching TV, and the front door is suddenly thrown open. Your breathing speeds up, your heart races and your muscles tighten. After a split second you realise it’s the wind, and that no-one is trying to break in. Yet, your mind went into overdrive, projecting and imagining demons, monsters or criminals. For that split second you were so afraid, you reacted as if your life was in danger, but, in reality there was no danger [...]

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.

Another powerful technique is God [...]
