Thought for Today
Lucky Day Forget mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you're going to do now and do it. Today is your lucky day.
Becoming a Peacemaker The first lesson on the path of becoming a peacemaker is to stop being at war with myself. It is only when the turbulence of my mind ceases that I can begin to make peace with the world.
Greatest Powers Gentleness, love, humility, forgiveness are the greatest powers in the world.
The Secret Ingredient When we're cooking, our minds are working. When we're stirring and rolling and baking, we're thinking. Thinking creates vibrations because that's what thoughts do. The vibrations affect both the food and the people who eat the food. So, cook with care; pay attention to what you are thinking; and don't forget that in the best of recipes, love is the secret ingredient.
Contentment To make good use of what you have and to let go of what you do not use is to live in a contented way.
Oasis of Peace Deep inside our consciousness is an oasis of peace. This is the molten core of the soul, but it is not hot, it is cool. Not passive, but a source of inner power to fuel our mind and intellect, so that we can create powerful thoughts and make accurate decisions. If you can learn to go to this centre, peace will be your companion, positivity your partner, and you will be able to chill out in one second, anywhere, anytime.
Plant The Seed Of Peace As our thought so is our consciousness, and as is our consciousness so is our life. Let your first thought of the day simply be peaceful. Plant this seed. Water it with attention and you will gather the calm.
The Quality of Mercy A person with the quality of mercy works on such a subtle level that the support given never demeans or implies weakness in the other person.
Introversion The ability to enjoy one's own company is one of the greatest gifts life has to offer. Learning to turn my thoughts away from all my responsibilities at the day's end and take my mind into a state of peace and benevolence enables me to carry greater and greater loads without feeling the burden. When my inner landscape is full of beautiful thoughts, everything I do is a pleasure. Gently, I calm down chaotic situations and offer solace to troubled minds.
Angel Face An angel's face is still because there are no lies inside. Truth makes it a straight, simple face whose beauty lies not in its form but in the feeling it gives you.
Mind Matters The most important part of you is your mind (not your brain - the brain is the hardware and the mind creates the software). Care for your mind, make friends with it, always feed it healthy food, engage it in positive activity, exercise it with knowledge and wisdom. Like a garden returns fragrance and beauty according to the care invested, so your mind will repay you with thoughts, ideas and visions of great beauty when tended and invested with care. Your mind is not made of matter but it does matter what you give it and what you create with it. Where your mind goes, you go. What your mind creates becomes your destiny.
The Virtue of Sweetness Just as eating and serving something sweet makes your taste buds feel sweetness, and for a while after, you remain happy, become sweet-natured yourself so that words filled with sweetness are constantly spoken. Such sweet words make both you and others happy. Use this method to always sweeten everyone's mouth; constantly maintain sweet attitude, sweet words and sweet actions.
Gentleness You are a gentle soul who can speak to what is in the heart of others without saying a word.
Generosity You are a soul who does not wait for happy endings, but creates them with the power of a generous heart. Generosity You are a soul who does not wait for happy endings, but creates them with the power of a generous heart.
Special Soul You are a special soul who easily destroys obstacles with the generosity of your overflowing heart.
Only the Best You bring out the best in others, because you see the best in others.
Purity If wealth is lost, nothing is lost. If health is lost, something is lost. If character is lost, all is lost.
Happy Heart You have a happy heart that can pump humour into any situation.
. Peace, Love and Happiness Keep peace in the mind, love in the heart and happiness in relationships.
