Choose to see good in all.

Our perception shapes the lives we lead because the universe adjusts itself almost instantly to our expectations. When we look for negativity, we are bound to come across it in abundance. Conversely, we create positive energy when we endeavor to see the goodness around us. As easy as it is to criticize the people and situations that frustrate or hurt us, we do ourselves a disservice in the process. It is important to see the good in all as there are blessings hiding in every

What is work to you?

Work is only work if you prefer to be somewhere else. Work tends to be a negative perception of a task which we reluctantly approach. Work is only labour when we forget to see our life as it truly is – an opportunity to be creative, enrich others and be enriched ourselves. When we are able to see work in this way, we find something called enthusiasm inside. When we are enthusiastic we work well and we are valued. We are used as a role model. When we work well it is much easie

The Past is a place to learn from not a prison to live in.

When we look back on our lives, we see that we have survived many trials, and often to our own amazement.We have all faced moments in our lives when the pressure mounts beyond what we feel we can handle, and we find ourselves thinking that we do not have the strength to carry on. Sometimes we have just gotten through a major obstacle or illness only to find another one waiting for us the moment we finally catch our breath. Sometimes we endure one loss after another, wondering

Power of self talk, but which self?

When you talk to yourself in your mind, which self do you address? And how? Usually people do not talk to their divinity, but to the most superficial aspects of their everyday personality. And often its a stream of fears, complaints and mindless repetition of old things. If we talked that way to another human being, we would have to apologise. Learning to talk properly to the self is a spiritual endeavour. Thoughts from the past and worries about the future do not create good

The obstacle is the way!

When we experience change in our life, we can control our response and reaction to the changes that are happening.Transformation is a universal constant that affects our lives from the moment we are born until we leave earthly existence behind. At the root of all growth, we find change. Occasionally, change and the circumstances leading up to it are a source of extraordinary joy, but more often than not they provoke feelings of discomfort, fear, or pain. Though many changes a

Diversity builds strength

When you look at the world through your physical eyes, you will see all the facets of our diversity: culture, race, personality, religion and so on. Seeing only through your physical eyes, it is easy to become stubborn and to try to prove yourself right. However where there is stubbornness there is no love. And trying to prove the self right is equally offensive. A diamond will sparkle even in the dust; you do not ever need to prove that you are right. In the face of the dang

When it gets too much, remember…

Always know, the Universe works in perfect order and you are never given more than you can handle.Sometimes we may feel like there is just too much we need to do. Feeling overwhelmed may make it seem like the universe is picking on us, but the opposite is true: we are only given what we can handle. Difficult situations are opportunities to be our best selves, hone our skills and rise to the occasion. The best place to start is to take a deep breath. As you do, remind yourself

What are you tolerating?

Tolerance is based on going beyond the superficial things that divide us. It’s the result of turning within and coming to know the Self. If I can deal with my own ego, then my own anger can be resolved. This goes a long way in resolving external issues, too. With my own ego out of the way I will be able to handle anything. Otherwise it’s just the same old thing – you versus me, yours versus mine, etc – intolerance. If I am unselfish and honest in my heart, and am concerned ab

Are you content?

First of all, understand discontentment. Discontent is caused by a constant multiplication of desires. One desire leads to another until there’s never a moment when you feel fulfilled. Desires are like traps. Because of endless desires relationships have become very fragile. There is a lot of irritability and anger due to: Selfish attachments (to possessions and people) Pride (attachment to a particular image of the self) When there is discontentment, the heart can never be s

When things annoy you

There will always be factors and people that we cannot control; how we respond can determine the quality of our lives. There are many stories of spiritual masters embracing the presence of an annoying student in their community. There is even one story that documents a teacher paying an irritating person to live among his students. From an everyday perspective, this is difficult to comprehend. We generally work hard to avoid people and things that we find annoying so they don

When others believe in you

It is important that we all find people that believe in us, just as we believe in others.There are times in our lives when we may find ourselves facing challenges that can seem overwhelming. The situation or task we are struggling with seems hopeless, and it is easy to stop believing in ourselves, our goals, and our dreams. It is during these moments that it can be reassuring and reaffirming to turn to the people in our lives who do believe in us, especially when we are findi

Addicted to Anger

There has probably never been a time where there has been so much fear and conflict across the world, not just across oceans and borders but across the breakfast table. In fact many now prefer conflict to peace, as they become addicted to the actions of anger and aggression, and the adrenaline rush which results. They don’t really want conflict to end, in fact, they will say that some conflict is good to get things done and stimulate change. They are not aware that they are k

Rain Kindness

Love, peace and happiness are our deepest values whether we are aware of it or not. So let’s experiment. If peace is something you value, then how will you live peacefully today. You experience what you live. If you want peace in your life… give it and you’ll live it. Or do you prefer a bit of anger and stress? We are all artists and it’s only when we paint our own life with the innate values of our spirit, which are also our eternal virtues, that we are truly creative. Paint

Recharge your spiritual battery

Each day we all need to recharge our spiritual battery, otherwise the light of our consciousness becomes dim, thoughts become fuzzy, and decisions are impregnated with doubt. Power is available inside and outside. Inside us we have a spiritual centre, at the core of our consciousness, pure radiant spiritual light. This is what we are. However it is now blocked by our attachments, the record of all our life experiences and many learned beliefs and perceptions. Outside us we ha

BE in the moment

When we live fully in the moment, there is an aliveness that comes easily.When we are fully present, we offer our whole selves to whatever it is that we are doing. Our attention, our integrity, and our energy are all focused in the moment and on the task at hand. This is a powerful experience, and when we are in this state, we feel completely alive and invigorated. This kind of aliveness comes easily when we are absorbed in work or play that we love, but it is available to us

Stop Wasting Time

Many of us spend most of our life trying to live someone else’s life. We are great fixers, and as we watch others we can hear ourselves attempting to ‘sort them out’. We hear it in our conversations with others and with ourselves. It sounds like, “They shouldn’t…weren’t they awful…did you hear about so and so…in my opinion they should”. In these moments we waste time trying to write the script of others and forget to write our own. We have no right to write another’s script a

Choose to be happy

Have you ever noticed that happiness is not a dependency, it is a decision? You don’t actually need anything to be happy. It’s not something that comes from outside, it comes from inside, and when you radiate a happy energy you’ll be amazed what it attracts into your life. Don’t worry, be happy…sound familiar? Decide now, be happy, and watch magic begin to enter your life. #Fear #challenge #Clarity #Heart #catalyst #deepakLodhia #Happiness #Inspiringspeaker #consciousness #Th

Are you the cause or effect of your life?

The principle of cause and effect is the truth that allows us to better ourselves and the world around us.All motive and action affects the cosmos in some way. The principle of cause and effect is the truth that allows us to change ourselves and the world around us for the better. However, this same universal law is also at work when change is not at the forefront of our minds. Our intentions flow forever outward in the form of energy, affecting both the people closest to us

Spiritual Healthcare

Silence, happiness, love and blessings are important aspects. Happiness leads to good health. It is only you who can give this medicine to yourself. Some bring illness to themselves through anger, greed, unfullfilled desires, expectations, suppression of feelings and relationships not based on true love. Look in your heart, you will know where your illness comes from. There are three ingredients for a long and healthy life: live with attention but without worry; use time in a

Intentions are good but ….

Our actions shape our lives, but what we don’t take action on can be just as powerful.Life is sculpted on a moment-to-moment basis. Every one of the thoughts we think, the words we speak, and the actions we take contributes to the complex quality and character of the universe’s unfolding. It simply is not possible to be alive without making an impact on the world that surrounds us. Every action taken affects the whole as greatly as every action not taken. And when it comes to
