When you attend to the spirit, life attains its highest and becomes a celebration.
Here’s how you can nurture the spirit.
1. Give the divine a chance.
Let your devotion flower and give it a chance to work. Prayer is a vital tool to improve your life. It also nurtures values such as integrity and honesty. If you are not grateful and prayerful, you will be miserable. What you can do, you do. What you can’t do, you pray for it! The feeling that “I am blessed” can help you overcome any failure. Once you realize that you are blessed, then all the complaints disappear, all the insecurities disappear.
The higher goals in life can only be realized through a few minutes of meditation and introspection. Meditation bring deepest of deepest rest. Deeper you are able to rest, dynamic you will be in activity. Even though deep rest and dynamic activity are opposite values, they are complementary.
2. Take out time for yourself.
If for the whole day you are engaged in only gathering sources for creativity. Sometime during the day, sit for a few minutes, get into the cave of your heart, eyes closed, and kick the world away like a ball. But, during the day be 100 percent attached to the work. Eventually, you will be able to be both attached and detached at the same time. This is the skill of living, the art of living. You have to renounce all work you have done the whole day, only then can you rest in the night. Creativity springs up when you are relaxed. Taking out some time for yourself improves the quality of your life. Learning something about the breath and other levels of our existence is very important.
3. Make your smile cheaper.
A baby smiles 400 times a day, an adolescent 17 times and an adult doesn’t smile at all! The more successful one becomes, stiffer the person is. Is being stressed a sign of prosperity, growth or dignity?
You should smile more. Every day, every morning look at the mirror and give a good smile to yourself. Don’t let your smile be snatched away by anybody! Usually, you give your anger freely and smile rarely as though a smile is costly. In ignorance, anger is cheaper and smile costly. In knowledge, a smile is free like the sun, air and water and anger is extremely expensive like a diamond. Make your smile cheaper and anger expensive! You are here for a greater cause. Just remember that.
We will see the rest in coming days.... Enjoy..!!
