Making Correct Decisions

Aug 31 2012

Brazil, South America

How many of you feel that without you doing any bad, you have gained enemies?

People become your enemies. You have not done any harm to them, any wrong to them and still they become enemies.

Similarly, you have not done any big favors to some people but they became your very good friends. Isn’t it?

How many of you have this experience?

See, this is it, people become friends and enemies by some strange karma, some strange law. There is some strange law due to which suddenly friends become enemies and enemies become good friends.

So, put all the friends and enemies in one basket and become free.

When you make a decision,
somewhere you get the gut
feeling that says, ‘Yes, this
is correct.'
One thing you should know
is that even if you take a
wrong decision, it always
leads you to growth.

See, what bothers your mind is either your friends, or your enemies. Isn’t that so?

When you sit for meditation, you should keep them all aside, your friends, enemies and everybody, put them one side, sit, relax, and become free.

What do you say? Isn't that correct?!

When your mind is satisfied, when it is quiet and happy, it gains a very peculiar power, i.e., the power to bless.

When you are happy and contented, you are able to give blessing to others.

If your mind is agitated and you have a lot of desires then you cannot give blessings. Even if you give blessings, it does not work that well. So, time and again, we must see to it that we have contentment.

When you are contented, not only your desires, but you can fulfill the desires of others as well.
