Check And Change (Part 2)
Whenever you start your day, wake up your attention and tell yourself that in the day ahead I will only perform good and constructive actions and before performing the actions, I will discriminate between right and wrong and judge whether the action I am about to perform or the words I am about to speak are in tune with my true nature. Everyone is basically a good person, but it’s the temporary sanskaras or personality of a person which make the person act or behave in a manner which is not very nice or presentable.
This is what happened as we came in the process of birth and rebirth. We started to forget our original good nature and our behavior and actions started becoming dictated by our acquired sanskaras which was our temporary nature. The acquired sanskaras are the false sanskaras or personality and the original sanskaras are the true sanskaras or personality. We need to revive the original sanskaras and erase the false sanskaras. This is the aim of self effort which means working on the self to improve the self and make yourself a better person in terms of virtues and powers and divinity. Once that happens, automatically our karmas or actions will start to become better and everyone around us will experience the same from us. This is how our relationships will also become full of goodness and positivity. A person with positive qualities is like a fragrant flower whom everyone would like to be in the company of and who gives happiness and love to everyone. So, keep checking your actions and improving and changing them where required and at the same time keep filling yourself with positive virtues which will make your karmas beautiful and you will naturally perform lesser number of incorrect actions.

Message for the day 02-08-2016
The one who is open to learning always finds an opportunity to learn and change.
Life has plenty of opportunities for the one who wants to learn. Each situation and person that comes one's way is an instrument for a new learning. Constant learning brings about a deep internal change and progress in one's life.
When I am able to learn from all that happens, I am able to be content for both what I have learnt and the change that I have been able to bring about. This contentment also keeps me enthusiastic and my mind open for further learning. I naturally become an embodiment of what I have learnt.
