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. 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 [...]

Experiencing the Power of Silence

In my free time I am practicing silence more and more. It is helping me to stay peaceful and calm my mind. As relationships, health and wealth are not a reliable source of happiness, I am finding more and more that spending time with the supreme soul the highest energy in silence is my main source of happiness.

Creating Heaven on Earth

Yesterday I had a great time at work and managed to create a peaceful environment for others. The return of that was my colleague seeing me as a “special soul”. I work with children so it is no easy feat to create peace for others. Here are my top tips for creating heaven in your life: Keep on helping the self and others. 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 [...]

Spiritual Growth in a Group Environment

For the past few months I have been regularly studying on the advanced course of meditation offered at the Brahma Kumaris Global Cooperation House in London. It is the international centre of the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University.  For the first time I am getting involved in a group environment on a long term basis. Through being in a group environment I am experiencing spiritual growth and attaining gradual success. I used to study at the local BK centre in [...]

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 [...]

Health Awareness

I recently attended a seminar on health awareness so that I can improve my health condition. I learnt some very useful things. The morning was divided between the three health care speakers: Dr. Prashant, Coordinator of the Brahma Kumaris Cambridge Center, Dr. Isabella Llewelyn, GP in North London, with a special interest in nutrition, cancer research and energy medicine, director of her own practice at Brent health care, and Helen Wall, from Birmingham, Five Elements Acupuncturist.
