Check And Change (Part 3)
Checking your actions and then changing them should be a natural habit and not something that is a burden on the mind. It’s as if the mind becomes accustomed to sub-consciously transform one’s habits or personality and keeps making easy and natural efforts to become a better human being at every step of life. This is living life correctly and carefully.Life is not just about performing actions but performing good actions which will give you happiness first and to others after that.
It’s very easy to not take up responsibility for your actions and say that it does not matter. But it does matter a lot to our inner being, which becomes pure or impure depending on the actions we perform. Say for e.g. one day you have been very irritable since the morning and it’s not been a nice day for you. You have lost your temper a few times and at the end of the day you say I have performed a lot of incorrect actions. So on a physical level there is nothing that you feel except a little anger, also sorrow and may be you repent that your actions have not exactly been of the highest level. But on an emotional level and internally, the soul or the inner being has the sanskaras or the impressions of every action that you have performed and those are negative impressions. So the soul becomes impure after even a single day of wrong actions. And imagine if we spent our complete life performing negative actions, without giving a thought to them, how it would cause us internal harm. In the same manner, by performing positive actions or by checking negative actions and changing them for the future, we will become purer and as a result happier human beings.
Message for the day 03-08-2016
The virtues of honesty and courage bring success.
The one who is courageous is never deterred by challenges, but moves on towards success. Combined with courage, is the virtue of honesty which allows one to be consistent, sincere and true in the efforts put in. So success comes with proper effort and there is also humility visible in such a person.
When I am courageous, but at the same time honest in my efforts that I put in for achieving success, I'll never have ego. I will be able to get the cooperation and good will of all, and especially the protection and the help of God. I will find myself moving slowly towards success with everything I do.
