An Act of Goodness Brahma Kumaris:-
Seven Keys to Happier Living:
1. Giving happiness and receiving happiness
Giving happiness to others and holding good wishes in your heart for others acts like sunlight, filtering into the dark corners of their mind and lightening their burden. Receiving happiness is blessing yourself by refusing to take any sorrow from others or from situations around you!
2. Expressing feelings of Gratitude
The intention and the action of gratitude is the inner symphony of the heart. It opens to sing with thanks for the smallest of things. To hear a bird sing, to see a child laugh, to receive a friend’s affection – are all invitations to express the feelings of gratitude.
3. Acceptance of scenes that cannot be controlled
Every situation is an excuse to bring out qualities from us, good or bad. It is up to us what we want to use. Acceptance is the secret of contentment. Creating a thought, based on a learning from the situation, makes our mind positive. It will allow me to add power to the situation, instead of losing my own power.
4. Letting Go! of the past
Emotions can feel uncontrollable – we have no choice but to experience them. But to live by our emotions is to live wastefully. Acknowledge emotions for what they are, without shame or guilt, and then allow them to pass through you like wind moving through the leaves of a tree.
5. Listening with patience.
Patience teaches you not to push and not to rush but rather to wait and appreciate. Patience is a virtue and a power too. Knowing that there is a reason and season for everything, it enables us to smile, realizing that there is an answer to every problem.
6. Refusing to see weakness of others
Our thoughts and feelings can so easily be influenced by how we perceive others. The more you look at defects in others, the more you will become affected. Weaknesses are contagious. If we make a firm choice to always keep a positive vision of those around us, then we will enjoy better relationships.
7. Caring for the self to care for others
Don’t be a stranger to yourself! Directing intelligence to know everything about the world, but directing intelligence to know your thoughts, your feelings, your emotions, your strength, your mastery, your slavery, where are you in your spiritual progress? Listening to yourself and seeing yourself is caring for yourself!
