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 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 [...]

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 [...]

How to bring positive change into your life

The mind is a very powerful tool and thoughts can be used to trigger visualisation which triggers the power to discern. This depends on our focus and our consciousness. When we concentrate with the power of the mind and intellect through visualisation together with the attitude of determination, then success is guaranteed. I attended a class on “everything you needed to know in meditation” and I have learned that visualisation gives us the power of discernment and improves our concentration. [...]

The Power of Truth

It takes time to build up a trusting relationship. Being truthful, simple, kind and open is one way to earn the trust of others. But what does real honesty mean? I have been reading a book which has deep spiritual knowledge called “Divine Virtues of the Soul”. It explains that real honesty means seeing only the good qualities of others and believing that they have inherent good qualities. It also means having faith in their ability to change. It also means [...]

Self-empowerment

Earlier this week I was able to develop the power to make a more permanent change to one of my negative personality habits. It was a habit ingrained in me since childhood and I had managed to get rid of it temporarily but then it returned. Since trying Raja Yoga Meditation I have now been able to start overcoming it and working on making a permanent improvement using my connection with God. There are lots of ways towards self-empowerment using [...]

How to beat depression

After many years of suffering from depression I am now overcoming it with the help of spirituality and medicine. It has been my experience that it is best to accept any illness and deal with it as quickly as possible to stop it from getting worse. Sometimes we are not powerful enough to overcome mental health problems alone and need the support of medicines. It takes courage to go and seek medical attention. Depression is caused by continued negative thoughts [...]

Dealing with Fear

Fear seems be a constant companion for most of us these days. It’s become so part and parcel of our lives, that without it, life would seem very strange indeed. Yet, when it comes, it creates the havoc of anxiety and doubt, sabotaging our joy, enthusiasm and determination, resulting in poor attitudes and performance, not to mention a plethora of health issues. Everything seems to be set up for us to experience fear; there are always the constant warning bells, [...]

Consider yourself to be God’s property

As a child my main concern was always to do well in my studies so that I could get a good job and help my family out of poverty. I never really thought much about character and sticking to your principles and was never lucky enough to be educated in this although I was a very honest person. As Modi is about to make a visit to the UK, the UK Brahma Kumaris bid farewell to one of their senior [...]
