Attitude in relationships

Our attitude creates our perception of what is happening in our relationships in life. If I have the attitude that someone is irritating, I will always find something irritating in that person’s behaviour so my attitude is a mind set that determines my experience of the relationship. That attitude of irritation comes from the ego mind. The ego attitude is of taking and of selfishness and is based on the limited events of life in this physical world, whereas [...]

Freedom – Part 2a

Body The ego has put our sense of self into the body and the role that we play in the drama of life. The body is not who we are but as soon as we are born, others relate to us as though we are the form we inhabit. “What a pretty girl. What a handsome boy” may be said many times when we are little. Such remarks focus our attention on the body and such experiences [...]

Freedom – Part 1b

Relationships We are all social beings and so we all interact with one another. It is helpful to adopt the attitude that we are all actors playing our different roles in the drama of life. I may be playing the role of a mother, a teacher, a householder and so on. This analogy enables us to understand that everyone is playing their part accurately according to their script. Each one creates his own story. [...]

Freedom – Part 1a

Possessions Everything out there in the physical world is neutral. It is what it is. A car is a car. A dress is a dress. Any value judgement is a projection of opinion. “This is a nice dress.” Nice is a value judgement which I have projected onto the dress. The “nice” value is not an inherent part of the dress. The dress is simply a dress. Different people might not even [...]

Models Of Perfection Vs Authentic Living

Spiritual awareness enables us to stand back from any situation and not get caught up in temporary ideas of models of perfection, ie, an image of what the ego would like us to be. Examples might include a model in our mind of how a perfect student, or a perfect nurse, or a perfect mother should be. The ego then tries to make us live up to that image, but living up to an image is not [...]

How to overcome adversity?

It is true that in life challenges and adversity are a certainty, but do they have to overwhelm and overpower us? Some respond to adversity incredibly well, dealing with them skillfully, optimistically, enthusiastically and appropriately. Whilst others often feel disheartened, perhaps defeated, disempowered – with feelings of “why me?”, as though life holds a personal grudge against them. Life does not discriminate when it comes to giving adversity; it does so very generously in fact. To subscribe to the idea [...]

True friendship

They say that true friends are hard to find, we all want true and good friends in our lives but are we that to our own self? The most important relationship in our life is the one that we have with our self. We tend to be kind, caring and thoughtful towards those around us, but rarely extend these compassionate qualities to our self. If a friend comes to us with something they are going through in life, we [...]

Helping children in finding their purpose

It has been said that children come through you but not from you – you may give them your love but not your thoughts (The Prophet, Khalil Gibran). From this we can denote the importance of lovingly overseeing the growth of a child, but not forcefully dominating or governing their lives. The former allows life to take its natural course, where learning takes place through play and exploration in safe environments – whereas the latter seeks to [...]

What is Soul Consciousness?

This is why spiritual education is the need of the hour.’’ Dadi Ratan Mohini Soul Consciousness and Body Consciousness Soul consciousness is derived from experiencing the self as the soul, having understood its definition. I am a point of incorporeal conscient [...]
