Churning The Knowledge (Part 1)

𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐝𝐚𝐲 𝐨𝐧 𝐚 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐞 𝐬𝐞𝐭𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐚 𝐝𝐚𝐲 𝐟𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐝 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐩𝐮𝐫𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐞. There was once a gardener who used to take utmost care of his plants. He started the day in their presence, watering them and ensuring that they were nourished with the right amount of sunlight and the right type of soil.

The gardener’s love for the plants used to reflect the way his plants started being loved by everyone around him. When people sometimes used to ask him the secret of his beautiful plants, he would give credit to the early morning sustenance that he would give his plants. This would ensure that they grew positively throughout the day.

We all also have to 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬, 𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐚𝐤 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐬, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦 𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 throughout the day. All of these need to be perfection-filled so that even other people around us are full of praise for them. It’s easier said than done especially with so many people around us with different personalities and different ways of thinking and also sometimes with their own priorities.

These sometimes take us away from our path of perfection and our thoughts, words, and actions are not of as high a quality as we wish. In such cases, we forget that the foundation of a day full of perfect thoughts, words, and actions is laid in the morning by beginning the day on a positive note. Here by positive, we mean reading a paragraph or two of positive information. This is like an exercise to shape our thoughts which keeps them fit for the whole day, which as a result keeps our words and actions full of purity and positivity.

At the Brahma Kumaris, we make it a point 𝐭𝐨 𝐚𝐛𝐬𝐨𝐫𝐛 𝐬𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐚𝐥 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰𝐥𝐞𝐝𝐠𝐞 𝐨𝐫 𝐰𝐢𝐬𝐝𝐨𝐦 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐝𝐚𝐲. 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐰𝐞 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐢𝐠𝐧𝐢𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭, 𝐢𝐧 𝐤𝐞𝐞𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬, 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐬, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐟𝐮𝐥 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐡𝐨𝐥𝐞 𝐝𝐚𝐲. Just like the garden requires early morning attention, the garden of our mind which consists of the flowers of thoughts, feelings, emotions, and attitudes requires attention in the morning. This keeps our complete personal landscape consisting of words, actions, and relationships, beautiful the whole day.

"Forgivene, Heal & Forget the Past"

When I am able to forgive the mistakes made by others, I am able to forget them easily also. So my mind is free from the burden of waste of all the past mistakes. So I am able to be light even when I am faced with the negativity of the other person. I am never caught up with attitudes about people so I am successful in my relationship with others.
