Believe In Everything

“When men stop believing in God, it isn’t that they then believe in nothing: they believe in everything.”

-Umberto Eco

What Are You Encouraging?



“Weeds don’t need any encouragement to grow. Much like our negative and repetitive thoughts they have a force and will of their own. This seems to be a function of our minds left over from the days of old when life was a lot more dangerous and difficult. Advertisers, news media outlets and propagandists seem to know this quite well and aim to play on our unfounded fears. These fears are nebulous and detached from any real threat, and because they are unfounded in reality, any slight mention of negativity will give these fears something to attach to and help justify themselves, though unnecessary. But, in the modern times we need not focus on the negative things so intensely seeing as the world has improved immensely, though not perfect. Let us give more attention to the positive and productive use of our miraculous and powerful minds. Only by doing so can we ever realize a reality in which we pay more attention to what is going right, rather than what is going wrong. When you focus on what you don’t want. you tend to get more of that and vice-versa. Our thoughts tend to become self-fulfilling prophecies. Let them fulfill something desirable”

Cohesive Fragmentation



“Always take time to fit in a break between activities, whether it is five, ten or fifteen minutes. Allowing this time enables us to reflect, rejuvenate and reset. Without this break in between our actions everything blends together and becomes a chaotic blur creating too much cohesion and not enough fragmentation. Let things flow smoothly, but also allow them to separate. It is a paradox you see.”

Do your work then step back…

“When starting a new task, project or anything of importance, let us remember to quote the Tao Te Ching, “The only path to serenity is to do your work and then step back.” Till the soil, plant your seeds, meet your needs and let it grow. Don’t keep digging it up to see if it has manifested yet. Leave that to forces outside of your control. That is like ripping off your cast every week to see if your arm has healed yet. Do everything that you can within your control and trust that things will work out however they may.”

Lets Fix Society



“Want to know what is wrong with a child? Look at the parents. Want to know whats wrong with the parents? Look at society and culture. Look at its values. Want to know whats wrong with its values? Look at its foremost thinkers and leaders.”

-R.B. Royal



 

Thoughts Live



“We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.”

“All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.”

“The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.”
 
“Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way.”
 
“Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.”
 
“All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.”
 
“Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being.”
“Arise, awake and do not stop until the goal is reached.”
 
“You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.”
“You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.”

Swami Vivekananda
