A beautiful new addition to my collection - The wisdom of no escape!!

At the end of each day, someone were to play a video of you back to yourself and you could see it all, you would wince quite often and say "Ugh!"
You probably would see that you do all those things for which you criticize all those people you don't like in your life, all those people you judge. Basically, making friends with yourself is making friends with all those people too, because when you come to have this kind of honesty, gentleness and goodheartedness, combined with clarity about yourself, there's no obstacle to feeling loving-kindness for others as well.
So the Ground of Maitri is ourselves!

* Maitri towards ourselves doesn't mean getting rid of anything, change ourselves or become something better.  It's about befriending who we are already. It is accepting ourselves just as we are right now without any judgements.

What Enhances Your Beauty?

When your mind is not complaining, responsible, courageous, confident and hollow and empty, you are inexplicably beautiful. A person who cannot correct or act has no right to complain. And when a person can correct or act, he will never complain. Complaining is a sign of weakness. Complaining is the nature of utter ignorance where one does not know the Self. Complaint takes away the beauty that is inborn in you. And it shows up more on the one who is on this path. Worldly mind is a complaining mind; Divine mind is a dancing mind. Just complaining without indicating the solution is irresponsibility. When the solutions are not workable, finding alternative solutions is courage. For external beauty, you put on things; for real beauty, you have to drop all the things. For external beauty you have to have make-up; for your real Beauty you only have to realise that you are MADE-UP!

Dots n Doodles - free of plans n free of cares!!!

Mind is the creator of everything. You should therefore guide it to create only good. If you cling to a certain thought with dynamic will power, it finally assumes a tangible outward form. When you are able to employ your will always for constructive purposes, you become the controller of your destiny.

Dots n Doodles - free of plans n free of cares!!!

To create dynamic will power, determine to do some of the things in life that you thought you could not do. Attempt simple tasks first. As your confidence strengthens and your will becomes more dynamic, you can aim for more difficult accomplishments. Be certain that you have made a good selection, then refuse to submit to failure. Devote your entire will power to mastering one thing at a time; do not scatter your energies nor leave something half done to begin a new venture.

Live Simply!

Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts, only you can change them!
You will want to change them when you realize that each thought creates according to its own nature.
Remember, that the law works at all the times and that you are always demonstrating according to the kind of thoughts you habitually entertain.
Therefore, start now to think only thoughts that will bring you health and happiness.
