His Will

Are we suppose to follow His Will or recognize His Will?

Is there anything in the world that is not following His Will? Is there anything that is not part of the totality?

We already are following His Will, there's nothing that is outside of His Will.

"Everyone is subject to His Command; no one is beyond His Command. O Nanak, one who understands His Command, does not speak in ego. " - second stanza of Jap by Guru Nanak Dev

We are following His Will but unconsciously. We don't recognize that everything is running under His Will. This ignorance is the cause of our suffering. The removal of this ignorance is enlightment.

"We are not isolated islands. We are all links of the same chain. All of our actions—whether done intentionally or unintentionally—have an effect on others. If we hold back from changing until others change first, no change will ever take place. But if we are ready to change first, it will effect a change in others as well."

- Amma

Life is not always forgiving. Some day it may be too late. If you have anger towards someone, it's better to resolve it with forgiveness and understanding. If you have lived your life self-centered, it may be time to increase your circle of compassion and care.

what makes us 100%?

A small truth to make our Lifes 100%...

If A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is equal to

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21
22 23 24 25 26

Then H+A+R+D+W+O+R+K
= 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11
= 98% only

= 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5
= 96% only

=54% only

= 12+21+3+11
= 47%

(don't most of us think these are most important???
Then what makes 100% ...
Is it Money?

..... No!!!!!
Leadership? ...
Every problem has a solution,
= 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5
= 100%
It is OUR ATTITUDE towards Life and Work that makes
OUR Life 100%
only if we perhaps change our attitude.
To go to the top, to that 100% what we really need to go
a bit more. ...

January Inspiration

January Inspiration: The start of a new year is a moment pregnant with possibility, a time for resetting our compass, expanding our vision, and recommitting to the task of manifestation. We invite you to dream audaciously this year, both for yourself and for our planet. As Willis Harman said, "Perhaps the only limits to the human mind are those we believe in." Let your mind stretch beyond its limits and challenge yourself to align your daily actions with your heart’s deepest desire. We have within our network enough love, wisdom, and awareness to reshape our world. Let’s use it.

an actor

Our individuality, our ego is just a role we are playing. We are actors. Our true nature is divine. That's what we were before the play started and that's what we will be after the play. Let's not get attached to the role...

Paraphrased from a lecture by Swami Chinmayananda.
