self observation

Introversion (self-observation) strengthens the self. Just as a tortoise withdraws from the external environment after its work is done, we too need to find time for ourselves.

In the middle of the activity of the day, we need to make time to look within and find the beauty that is hidden there. When we do this as a practice it brings a positive experience that strengthens the self. We need to give ourselves a little time everyday at regular intervals. During this time, we need to look… Continue

The way to accumulate the account of blessings is to remain content and make others content.

While you are doing something, check if there is any limited desire for name or fame. The instant fruit of the service that you do is that you are happy, it is not what you get later that is important. So check how much you are experiencing this fruit and remaining content. Whatever you are doing for yourself or for others throughout the day, make sure that you are enjoying it. When you start… Continue

not be I

You can always be successful when there is a desire to serve others.

At the end of each day, check if you have done anything for others. Also check if there is any consciousness of 'I' in all the things that you do for others. When there is even the slightest trace of a desire for benefit for yourself you cannot experience either contentment or success. Each day take up at least one thing that would bring benefit to others, irrespective of whether it will get you anything or not. When you… Continue

Be fluid like water and adapt your nature to your surroundings.
Your practice is not to resist. Instead of forcing things to be the way you want them to be, go with the flow.

soul-diamond rosary

Instead of identifying yourself as a body, identify yourself as a soul, a subtle (non-physical) star without any physical form and dimensions, a point source of light energy and consciousness. Whatever you do or say, it is you, the soul, who is performing that action through the body. The soul is like a driver and the body is the car. To be in complete control, the driver has to sit in the place where he has access to the controls and also can collect all the necessary information to make… Continue

Intuitive Guidance

Intuitive Guidance ---- Nurturing Mind Body and Spirit

Strengthening our intuitive abilities and being aware of our surroundings allow us to recognize lucrative opportunities and make beneficial decisions. While our intuition speaks to us spontaneously, we can learn to use it as a tool for growth if we instead learn to access it on demand. Making time to clear our mental and spiritual channels and tune in to our inner wisdom gives us a heightened sense of clarity that can enhance every… Continue

Moving across the path of life if you have time to peep around and see that people are getting more and more involved into the spiritual path, but do we need to forget what is there with us and search for something that is yet to be discovered?

Moving with the pace of life today i got an opportunity to visit an OLD AGE home and my heart was in tears to see the souls from various aspects of caste and culture clubbed together under the same roof, thrown away as rotten carcass. The eyes… Continue

Realize ur own true nature

Sri Swami Satchidananda's Notes


Know that you are already liberated. You are never bound. Thinking that you are bound is ignorance. As the pure Self, you are never bound. The true Self is eternally pure, unchanging, immortal, never tainted by anything. It is always peaceful. But you don't see your true Self, you see the image of your true Self on the mirror of the mind. So when the mind gets tossed, the image is disturbed. The image… Continue

Rise above me,mine i,this is mine,this is yours

Sri Swami Satchidananda's Notes


Heaven is a place where love and nothing but love flows. Real, cosmic, universal love. People love each other as they love themselves. They love the animals, the plants, all the things around them. They even love their trash cans. That's what heaven is. Everyone living as one big family with no "mine" and "yours," only "ours." It's God's home and everyone feels that they are children of that home. Everything is… Continue

How To Love Yourself Unconditionally By Owen Waters

If there is anything that you dislike about yourself – your body, your mind or your feelings – it is time to clear away that old baggage once and for all.

Tell yourself a totally positive thought, such as:

“I love everything about my body.”

Then, listen for the inner voice of self-criticism to step in and say things like, “except for my weight,” “except for my unmanageable hair,” and so on.

The point of the exercise is to identify opinions and beliefs… Continue
