SamadarshiniJi Words Of Wisdom-Inspiration

Dear Friend,

How are you? Affection and regards. Bear with me for the delay in getting to you. We went through your replies. Most were very interesting and insightful. It is evident you are living your BreakThru. There is a separate attachment giving some of the most beautiful answers. This is our way of appreciating you for your thoughtful replies. Please know that a few thousand serious people will be looking into your answers, which in all likeliness would help further their own thought processes.

Now let us take a peep into both the stories.

Case study 1: The person has not put in enough hard work and the intent is not clear.

Before you fix a goal or a vision for yourself, question yourself why? Why do I have this intent? What is the propelling force behind your intent? Is it to gain stability, to have pleasure, to gain significance and love, is it to win acceptability or is it for growth and contribution? If the reasons are convincing and are more in number, then the inspiration will stand long. On the other hand if they are not, there is not sufficient fuel to push you forward.

Secondly, check the intent and see to it that it is realistic. Only then the mind with all its faculties of reason and feeling will own it or else every time you think of reaching your goal, there will be a part of you that will be screaming, "It is not possible. I will never get there". It is this hidden part of you that would connect you to the lower conscious in a desperate breakdown moment. Question yourself Is your intent realistic? Do you feel it is possible to get there if you invested your fullest efforts into it?

Another important thing is, people usually like to draw from the hard work they had put in the past. Having worked for 5 years, you got the results. But what about the results you want to create for the future?

It is like trying to draw money from an empty account, which was once fat. If you need the results now, you will need to work towards it and plan for it.

Dear friend, please understand that of all the vices 'haste and laziness' are the deadliest of combinations. A road map must clearly be laid in your mind's eye and consistent effort put towards that end.

Finally align yourself with the Higher Conscious.

Don't forget the mantra 'Intent + Effort + Grace = Success'

To do:

1. If you are clear with your intent, then systematically pen down

your plans (long term and short term) and strategies as to how you are going to achieve it. Take a look at it every day. It will work wonders.

2. Before you begin your day's work, ask yourself am I prepared to

put in the required effort today to reach my destination? At the end of the day, check whether you executed your plans?

Case study 2:

The couple valued growth and contribution the most. When somebody is functioning from growth, they will not settle for mediocrity. They are moving onward, surging ahead. When you value growth and contribution and work towards it, all other needs are automatically fulfilled.

Your contributions reflect who you 'are' and every thing else is what you 'have'. That's the attitude of somebody functioning from the sixth level of consciousness.

This couple also has learnt the importance of creating personal relationships with their employees. They have learnt the art of infusing love into work.

Anybody who wants to be at the top has to be a 'great giver'. And if you have to be a great giver, you need to 'have' what you chose to give. To have much you need to 'learn'. To contribute more, you need to grow more and for that you need to learn more. That is why the mantra

"Learn- grow- serve, Learn- grow- share, Learn- grow- contribute".

To do:

1. Identify your areas of growth and write them down. What is it you

need to learn in order to grow in a particular area of life?

2. What is the need you seek most? For the coming 7 days, fulfill

that need in a relationship that counts most. Ex: If your need is importance or love, then for 7 continuous days no matter what, give that love and importance to the other.

With best wishes and prayers,

Contemplative Questions

Here is a set of questions that would provoke you and put you through some soul searching. They are not about religion nor about ethics. They are merely about you.

They are not meant to serve as solutions nor are they meant to lead you anywhere. These questions are meant to serve as tools to discovering yourself.

1) Do you perceive the Presence of a benevolent force guiding, protecting and shaping your life? What name do you give that Presence? When did you best feel this Presence?

2) What is your opinion of God? Is your opinion drawn from religion, books, parents and or your personal experience of life?

3) Do you pray? Do they get answered? How often?

4) Do you think it is possible to relate to the Divine? What relationship would you opt?

5) Here is a story for you - Two fierce enemies once did a penance to placate god and receive boons vying with each other. God appeared to the first man and asked what he wanted. He said "give me twice of whatever you give my enemy". Then God appeared to the second one. Even before God could say anything he asked, "God, would you please tell me what my enemy asked for? On knowing his prayer request, he said, "then God, blind me in one eye."
Now what would you wish for yourself, your best friend and your worst enemy if God gave you a chance?

6) Have you ever experienced a coincidence or chance that seems to have involved so many people and factors that you can't stop wondering if a mastermind was behind this operation? If yes, do you savour the experience often and have you shared it with someone close to you?
