Beautiful Thoughts from Brahma Kumaris

I get my emotional strength from Brahma Kumaris. I start my day by reading their 'Thought for Today' email which keeps me going through thick and thin.


The Secret of Happiness
The secret of happiness is to be free of fear. Fear is like a toxin that runs through much of our thinking. It feeds on insecurity, feeling of loss, loneliness, inadequacy and attachment. You are lovable and loving. Accept this as Truth. Appreciate and care for yourself - truly, deeply, intensely, in a way that reflects your real value. Then you will automatically have the same regards for all other living beings and things .
Smile
When you smile, not only do you feel happy, but you bring a ray of light into the lives of others.

Speak Sweetly
Nature did not like hardness in speech, so there is no bone in the tongue.


Excuses, Excuses.
If you want to do anything you find a way. If you don't want to do anything you find an excuse.

The Influence Of Gossip
I cannot afford to overlook the influence that other people have on me. To what extent do I check that I am not being influenced by gossip? Negativity in the mind is like poison. Negative thoughts are the seeds of negative actions. Gossip and guessing bring sorrow, heaviness and distrust. Hear no evil. See no evil. Speak no evil. Think no evil..


Arguments
Truth is lost when we argue.


Humility
I value others without seeking their attention. Self respect is my inner light. I need nothing extra. I am unafraid of life's great teachings in all their daily guises. Today I will let someone help me.


Character
Humility dismisses nothing, rather, it takes even small things into consideration. It recognizes that whatever life presents, needs to be respected. Small things are easily found in something big, but inside little things there is often greatness.


Spiritual Language
To create the future we desire we need a spiritual language; we must speak from the heart and in the language of the soul - a language of trust, faith and higher values, of inner growth, love and listening.

Silence
In the ocean of silence you may discover your eternal treasures of peace, love and happiness. In silence, you can let bad feelings and past sorrows dissolve. In silence you can hear the whisper of God saying "Come child and rest with Me. You are a peaceful soul."
From Expectations to Acceptance
Getting on with people is tough, especially when they don’t fulfill your expectations! Instead, if you accept people the way they are without expecting them to be something they’re not, you end up less disappointed and frustrated.


Give Happiness
One who gives happiness cannot give sorrow. One who gives sorrow, cannot give happiness. Where there is happiness there cannot be sorrow.

Contentment
Remain content by recognizing the benefit of every moment - and the beauty of every soul.

Fear Nothing
You already have the courage to “Face, Explore, Accept and Respond” to fear. All you have to do is move beyond inertia and discover your true potential. Then, courage will enable you take action in spite of fear

Love, Purity, Peace, Wisdom
When you build a house, every brick counts. When you build a character, every thought counts. You are what you think. Love, purity, peace, wisdom - the more you think of these qualities, the more you will become them.

Remember Things of Happiness
When you feel tired, remember things of happiness and you will regain strength.

Look Before You Leap
Whatever actions you perform, check the consequences and then perform that action. Then you will never say I don't know how this happened. I didn't mean it to happen. If you do not pay attention, lines of tension then become visible on your face.

Learn a Lesson
Instead of being afraid of situations, consider them to be your teacher and learn a lesson from them.

The Solution Focus
Making things positive doesn’t mean a sunny outlook; it means making the choice to see problems as opportunities. Every problem and difficult situation is embedded with a solution - the adventure lies in finding the solution.

Don\'t Lose Today
If yesterday was lost in grief, don't lose today and tomorrow by keeping it in your memory.

Tolerance
If you realize that everyone is an individual with their own unique part to play, then the power of tolerance is easy to develop.

Addicted To Praise
We all want to be liked, valued and appreciated. There's no doubt that we're motivated by praise from those who matter to us. But it's easy to become addicted to praise. Savor compliments without needing them. Enjoy performing well even if no one notices. Give your best without expecting validation.

Manners
When we encounter good manners, we feel that some deeper part of us has been honored. Truly, none of us deserves anything less.

Honesty
Honesty is to speak that which is thought and to do that which is spoken. There are no contradictions or discrepancies in thoughts, words or actions.

Too Much Thinking
The biggest disease of the mind is over-thinking, especially too much thinking about others.Thinking too much is like eating too much. The heaviness makes it impossible to remain light and flexible.

Kind Thoughts
Great souls take advantage of every moment and every opportunity to give happiness to others through kindness in their thoughts; such souls are willing to overlook weaknesses and mistakes and have the desire to help everyone reach their potential.

Peaceful Being
You fill your life with peace when you discover you only have to be yourself, to be what you have always been - a peaceful being.

Relationships
Good feelings for others are like ointments that heal wounds and re-establish friendship and relationships. Good feelings are generated in the mind, are transmitted through your attitude and are reflected through your eyes and smile. Smiling opens the heart and a glance can make miracles happen.

Seeing Things Truly
We tend to see things not as they are, but as we are. Becoming quiet and simple inside is the first step towards seeing things truly.

Chance to Change
It is better to make use of a chance to change rather than to change your chances.

Thoughts, Words and Deeds
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.

Power Of Protection
Do you need protection? Are you strong enough to protect yourself? Cultivating self awareness allows me to see how I have the inner power to choose my feelings regardless of what others say or do.

Self - Sovereignty
Subservience to my negativity is a very precarious existence as I can never be sure how well I will handle a difficult situation. With practice it is possible to create appreciative and compassionate thoughts; then I no longer need to indulge in resentment, bitterness or dislike. Training myself to react calmly and wisely offers enormous dividends. Let me talk to myself silently with love and encouragement, balanced with firmness, and like the wise old sovereigns of fairy stories, let me rule the inner kingdom of my mind with benevolence.

Contentment
To be content with a little is a great wealth.

Attraction
Like attracts like. Whatever the conscious mind thinks and believes, the subconscious identically creates.

Time is Valuable As A Diamond
Your time is most valuable, and so you should not waste it. You should not waste time in wasteful thoughts. Every second of yours is as valuable as a diamond.

Think No Evil.
"See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil." Do not even think evil, because first you think of something, then you speak of it, then you see it.

Forgiveness
Why is it hard to forgive others? Usually because we believe that they are 90% to blame for the problem, that I am not as bad as they are. So I start to carry the load of other people's actions. If my ego is too hurt, I will have the sense of correction, of justice: 'I know I am right', 'That is not fair'. But if I start to forgive from the heart, sincerely, then this kind of feeling and attitude begins to dissolve. I remain humble and this forgiveness will bring me closer to others. Then I do not carry regrets or anger, I just let go and remain light

An Angel
Acceptance gives me the experience of being like an angel: never judging, never criticising and never worrying.

Meditation
At the core of your being, you are deeply peaceful, immensly loving, infinitely wise and profoundly contented.

Consider The Consequences
Become very, very sweet. Remove even the slightest trace of anger. Whatever you think, whatever you say, consider carefully all the consequences beforehand. By performing actions knowing their consequences, success is definitely experienced.

Sweetness of Introversion
Instead of speaking too much and wasting your energy, become experienced in the sweetness of introversion.

Healing
I gently return to equilibrium, nurtured by a well-spring of love. I, the soul, am washed and soothed by the quiet energies of stillness. Embracing the vastness of my inner landscape, I understand the cycles of growth and decay. Today I will fix something broken, or find a new use for it.

Daily Decisions
What I am experiencing at this moment is the result of choices and decisions made in the past; what I will experience in the future depends on choices and decisions I make now. Happiness is a daily decision.

Making a Life
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Inner Power and Protection
I 'put a period' as soon as I see myself complaining and blaming. These two habits destroy my inner power completely, because they show I am still expecting solutions and changes from other.

Seeds of Hope
The world is your garden from which you remove weeds of doubt and replace them with seeds of hope.

Great Soul
A great soul is one whose every thought and every act is great. Not a single thought should be ordinary or wasteful. No action should be ordinary or meaningless.

Give and Take
Whatever you give comes back to you. Whatever you take will not stay with you.

Generosity
You are a soul who does not wait for happy endings, but creates them with the power of a generous heart.

Heart of a Butterfly
"...the caterpillar has the heart of a butterfly!” It is true that if we know within our hearts what we want to become, then we will become that.

Lightness
Move through life with lightness, touching the hearts of others without leaving a mark.

Peace of Mind
Peace of mind comes not from wanting to change others, but by simply accepting them as they are.

Cheerfulness
Cheerfulness keeps up the spirit of the one who possesses it, and brings a smile to the lips of others.

Happiness
It is the art of living, the purpose of our existence. Happiness is the true index of quality of life. Without happiness, life is dry and meaningless. With happiness, life immediately becomes fulfilling and wonderful. Happiness is an infectious feeling that immediately lifts the sagging spirits of people. Happy people keep themselves happy because they know the little ways to appreciate themselves and to see the humour and magic in each moment.
