Be The Change That God Wants To See (Part 1)
Starting a journey of a loveful connection with God brings with it, along with the love and care experienced from God, a lot of sacrifice and discipline. This is because God is not only an Ocean of Love but also a watchful parent who expects His children to take love and belongingness from Him. But, along with that, He also expects them to give Him a return of the love. When we see physical parents, no matter how big the child becomes, the parents always expect their children to be like them and also follow them completely and be good and clean human beings. In the same way, God, the spiritual parent, has His own way of defining what is right and wrong and how we should make the right a part of our lives and keep the wrong away which can harm us on a spiritual level. Remember God’s personality is not like ours but it stands at a higher level, to reach which, we have to stand tall and upright in character. We have to also let go of not only our ego but also our rigid beliefs of a very long time.
So, to reach God and be with Him up there, which means have a personality like Him, we have to listen to His every word and every instruction. We have to also change our old ways of thinking instead of being stubborn and continuing with our old habits, which do not go away easily. There are some who promise God their love but when it comes to following in His footsteps, they are not as faithful and trustworthy as God expects them to be. So, what does one call such children? Unfaithful – we cannot call them that because they love God a lot and also like changing themselves as per God’s desire, but not to the extent which God wants them to. As a result they are seen as semi-faithful because they are loveful and loyal to God but lack the determination and power to bring significant shifts in their thinking. Also, they do not become spiritual self or soul conscious, completely pure and egoless, which are the three primary qualities required to reach upto God and stand as tall as Him.

Message for the day 18-03-2017
The one with contentment is neither upset nor upsets others.
Many times I find that my words, actions or behaviour tends to upset others inspite of my not wanting to hurt them. I seem to be very happy with the situation, but others don't seem to be. At that time I am not really able to understand the reason for this and I consider the others to be unreasonable.
I need to check myself when others are getting upset with me. I need to make effort to check and change myself constantly so that I am able to move along with the demands of time. This is what will bring about true contentment - such contentment that neither will I be upset nor will I upset others.
