On A Spiritual Joyride (Part 2)
Variety in life is an important way to sustain a spiritual journey which many of us are on. Meditation is a technique which is being practiced by millions of people all over the world. At the Brahma Kumaris, people from many countries practice meditation in their daily lives. At the same time, as per the knowledge shared by God, they take care that meditation does not become just like a daily routine. Everyday meditation is done with different types of positive thoughts. In this way, spirituality is like a fun filled joyride in which different experiences become a daily part of your life. Also everyone at the Brahma Kumaris will not study spiritual knowledge only when they are alone or at home. They will also visit one of the centres of the Brahma Kumaris daily for an hour, wherever they are. And they will listen to spiritual knowledge in a gathering. The intention behind this type of practice, besides better understanding of the knowledge, is an increase in enthusiasm by sitting with people of the same mindset. Also, you gain from their spiritual power, which is called the power of the gathering.
Spirituality also brings with it the duty of sharing all that you listen and learn, with others, which also increases your enthusiasm. Along with sharing, which we call service at the Brahma Kumaris, there is great importance given to changing oneself positively. This is a way of going ahead in life on an emotional level. This is because changing oneself automatically causes a positive energy of change to flow in my words and actions, which further flows to others causing an increase in enthusiasm in oneself. This is the spiritual joyride on which we sit everyday and wait for the next day with a lot of interest.

Message for the day 15-04-2017
Where there is knowledge energy is saved.
I put in a lot of effort to deal with the situations I am faced with. But sometimes I do not find the success that I should. I then put in more energies to bring about the desired change, but without any positive result.
In order to deal effectively with the situations, I need to understand the situation accurately. If I don't succeed once, I need to check if I have understood the situation accurately or not. With understanding, my energies don't get wasted away, but get focused accordingly.
