Daily Positive Thoughts: May 23, 2013: Happiness
Dervishes of Mevlevy Order
It isn't addition of possessions, but subtraction of desires which promotes happiness.
A human being is soul and body, spirit and matter, working together co-operatively.
The body is like the hardware of a computer and the spiritual energy, the soul, is a tiny chip of light, where all things are recorded. When we go into introspective (deep) silence, it is in this chip of light, which is actually a point of light energy that we can remember and rediscover.

The tiny chip of invisible light starts to work effectively when it plugs into its original consciousness and reactivates those original qualities, which enable the soul to work and express itself naturally. The connection is achieved through the power of concentrated thought; this is called 'consciousness of the soul'. The process of experiencing 'soul consciousness' is carried out in meditation: gathering all the thoughts of the mind, creating one concentrated thought and very gently running inwards in order to make the connection with the original self, the soul.

To take those first steps in gathering the thoughts, we use the positive consciousness of ‘I am', or what is called 'Om Shanti' consciousness. 'Om' means 'I am', with the deeper meaning that 'I am a peaceful soul'. With this awareness, there comes the experience of one's original spiritual identity.
Freeing Oneself from Hatred

Rage has many offspring (children), such as hate, anger, intolerance, insistence, irritation, obsession, sarcasm (taunt), envy, the abuse of authority, impatience, the lack of forgiveness. Generally it 'explodes' when we want to control another or when our expectations have not been fulfilled.

Hate destroys your concentration and kills the capacity to act with dignity and excellence. You hate by justifying yourself in the other. You had expectations of them and they have let you down. They have wounded you and broken your heart. You answer this wound with revenge. You have to make them pay for it. You think that way you will do justice. This hate keeps you tied to the person that you hate. Instead of accepting them, forgiving them and letting go of them, you tie yourself to them more, nourishing and increasing the pain and the conflict.

Can hate be justified? Can it improve things? Can hate be healthy in any circumstance? Hate affects your health; it poisons your heart, kills your inner peace and dries you of love and happiness; you stay isolated in your aloneness, filled with that rage.

Soul Sustenance

Creating A Positive Atmosphere

Without a powerful intellect, a weak soul is at the mercy of the surrounding atmosphere whether at the workplace or at home or at any other place. Whatever the atmosphere, so will be the emotions and thoughts in the mind, whether the person enjoys them or not. At such times it is impossible to escape from the effect of the atmosphere. When a soul is so dependant it is unable to choose its thoughts or remain in any desired positive experience.

To be detached from a negative atmosphere and to be instrumental in creating a powerful, positive atmosphere, the soul must:

• have powerful attention to its own true nature.
• use the intellect to clear the mind and become introspective (look inwards).
• look deep into the self and choose the purer, more elevated human emotions of peace, power, contentment, or whatever quality is needed in that particular situation, and retain that in the mind.

Meditation helps us in achieving all of the above.

Message for the day

The power of transformation brings all attainments.

Expression: When there is the ability to transform negative into positive, and waste into useful in a second there is the ability to be useful for the self and others. There would not be just complaints against the situation, but the best would be made out of all situations and move on to the aim set out.

Experience: When I am able to use the power of transformation to finish negative and waste, I am able to experience being free from obstacles. So I am able to experience contentment under all circumstances for having made the best use of everything available.
