We become what we watch, read & listen to. Our mind consumes the energy of the information that we feed to it, and accordingly, it creates thoughts & feelings. To feel good & positive, certainly, we need to check & change our emotional diet. At the same time, people around us will have their own choices for their emotional diet. To remain unaffected by the surrounding atmosphere, I need to channelize my mind and keep giving it something good to think about.

Ever since I have been reading the knowledge (Gyan Murli) being given at the Brahma kumaris, I have stayed away from films, film music, and television. Since my parents watch TV at home, I ask them to keep the volume low which they do all the time. The issue I am facing is that even with that low volume, when they watch some film music shows, my mind gets attracted to these songs and I lose concentration. I am facing the same issue when in the market place or somewhere else, some film music is being played. My mind gets carried away by the film songs. This is happening with mostly film and album songs and not much by other things which are normally shown on TV. In addition to this, even when film music is not being played by someone else, I start humming or singing some film songs. So, it is also in my mind and not just when it is being played externally. This is happening even after I have stayed away from films and TV for several years... What should I do to resolve this issue? Please help me.

Om Shanti... Ham sabhi devi-devta gharane ki aatmaye 16 kala sampann thi. 16 kala me ye geet va singing ki bhi ek kala aati hai, Isliye kalyug ant me bhi ve aadi k sanskar abhi bhi emerge ho jate hai. Isliye isme pareshaan hone ki koi baat nhi hai. Bas thoda sa disha badlo to dasha khud b khud badal jayegi. Means, jo bhi laukik geet aap ko bahut pasand ho yaa koi bhi song jo aapke kaan me jaa rahi hai, uski lyrics ko aap khud murmer karte huye usko baba se relate kar de arthaat usme apne man se aise shabdo ka addition kare, jisse vo song Baba ko dedicate ho jaye aur aap ruhaani riti us geet ko apna bana le...
Dusri baat , gyan me hum chal rahe hai, market aur ghar wale nahi. Isliye vo kya kar rahe hai, kya sun rahe hai, in sab par dhyaan dene ki jharurat nhi hai. Sari duniya hi abhi tamopradhanata aur swayam ko modern samaj ka jhandabardaar dikhane ko race me lagi hui hai. Isliye agar hamara dhyan idhar-udhar jaa raha hai to iska matlab ham sachche Rajyogi nahi bane abhi. Sachcha Rajyogi kabhi halchal me nahi aa sakta kyuki vo swarajya-adhikaari hota hai. Isliye baba kahte hai ki swarajya-adhikari pan ki vidhi dwara apne karmendriyon ko apni order anusaar chalao... Dhyan rakhe, agar abhi hamne apne karmendriyon ko apne vash nhi kiya to aage bahut badi mushkil me fas jayenge kyunki aane wala samay to bahut cheetkaro-krandan wala hai. Agar abhi hamne apne sankalpo ko ekagrah karne vaa mould karne ki kala nahi seekhi to hum real gold kaise banenge? Aap ko apni is kami-kamjori ka pata to chal gya hai, ab jarurat hai isko change karne ki. Iske liye dridhta ki shakti dwara apne sankalpo par attention rakhe aur sankalp ko pyar se mould kare aur baba ke real gold bachche ban shreshth pralabdh ke adhikari bane...
