The Colour of Flowers…..

Beautiful quote delivered by the wonderful Brahma Kumaris – http://www.brahmakumaris.org

Leave worries aside and you will be surprised by the beauty of the sky and the colour of flowers, of the freshness of the breeze and the generosity of the sun. You will feel you are part of creation, and life will start to make sense. The greatest wealth is to appreciate what we have and what we are.

And here are some images I took whilst doing just that in Richmond Park – my favourite place.

Kindness…..

From the http://www.bkwsu.org

Kindness in words creates confidence.

Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.

Kindness in giving creates love.

A Beautiful Piece on Peace……………

You are what you think. Think that you are a being of peace, and peace will become your new personality. share good news with others. Always have something interesting prepared to share with those you meet. Remember to have a peaceful thought at least once a day.

Taken from The Gift Of Peace book by the Brahma Kumaris.

Talk on Happiness from the BKWSU……….

I went to a talk at the Global Retreat Centre earlier this week presented by a lovely woman, Brigitte from the Brahma Kumaris.

One thing she said that really hit home for me was that whatever you go though in life, if you don’t absorb it and accept it, it will almost certainly be detrimental to you. Your not willing to accept this thing will create emotions which will lead to a series of though patterns which will lead to your reality. So from now, I am going to try and just accept whatever happens.

Brigitte also talked about watching your thought patterns – observing them from the outside and judging whether they are coming from the real you or your ego.

I personally find these talks fantastic and I always come away a little wiser and calmer. I would recommend these to anyone and everyone. The Brahma Kumaris is by far one of the most wonderful, giving organisations I have ever come across. many times when I have not been right, I have gone to one of these and it has put things into perspective for me. Also the fact that they don’t charge makes this service accessible to all – which I think is so great. There are way too many organisations that have great courses and workshops on enhancing ourself but they can charge hundreds of pounds which immediately limits their audience.

Thought of The Day…….

As ever from www.bkwsu.org

If you consider the gifts you have received in life to be given in trust, you will have great value for them and will use them wisely and generously.

FREE TALK – Inner Power & Protection Conversation: 24.09.09 @ 730pm, Oxfordshire

I would highly recommend this talk to anyone. I’ll be there.

Experiencing Inner Power & Protection Series

Build Resilience, Focus Your Mind, Relax Your Heart


A conversation and experiential evening with Manda Patel and Mike George

Every day, people rely on their inner strength and courage to make difficult choices in life, perhaps finding an experience of strength and protection that is beyond their perceived capacity. 

How do we harness this inner strength?  What effect do these experiences have on our own lives and the lives of those around us?  Can some of these experiences be attributed to Divine protection?  If so, how do we access it?

Mike George is an author, motivational speaker and teacher of meditation and spiritual development for over 20 years.  His publications include Learn to Relax, The 7 AHA’s of Highly Enlightened Souls, In the Light of Meditation and Don’t Get Mad Get Wise.

Manda Patel Director of the Global Retreat Centre in Oxford, began her spiritual studies in London 27 years ago and has since become a well known figure on the world speaker’s circuit where she lectures on values and spiritual development in everyday life.

FREE TALK – Intuition in Action – The Secret To Understanding 29.09.09 @ 430pm London

www.bkwsu.org

Intuition In Action

 www.bkwsu.orgThe Secret To Understanding

Have you ever had a hunch that something was about to  happen and to your surprise, it did? 

Have you ever had ‘gut feelings’, a strong sense of ‘knowing’ that something was true without a specific reason but you ended up
being right?  That’s your intuition. 
  

No matter what it’s called, intuition plays a part in our lives everyday.  Your intuition ‘knows’ what you need and what to do.
  
Every single one of us has this inner resource, but most of us are cut off from listening to this inner guide.
 
Discover how to:
access your intuition, feel, hear and see intuitively
Follow your gut feeling with more confidence:
‘understand’ yourself and other people more accurately
develop it further for practical use in your everyday life and have fun  with it!

Date: 20/09/2009   4.30pm – 6.00pm

I’ll probably be at this one. It’s funny because I was thinking about honour today and what it really means. I’ll write a summary of the talk soon after.

Honouring The Self

Thursday 10 September 7:30  to  9:00pm
At The Global Retreat Centre

Honouring the self is about awareness and understanding of your path through life. I maintain inner peace, dignity and honour when I find the balance between responsibility to my roles and the responsibility I have to myself; between the powers to accommodate and to face. 

Arti, a meditation teacher for over 22 years, is the co-ordinator of the Brahma Kumaris Inner Space Information Centre in Covent Garden. She lectures and runs seminars on personal growth around the UK.

FREE TALK – So Many Choices…What To Do? London 9.8.09 @ 430pm

WWW.BKWSU.ORG

DECISION MAKING MADE EASY…

www.bkwsu.orgHaving a choice is better than not having a choice – agree?  But it becomes a drag when too many choices keep you from acting.
 
Too many choices and we: get confused; freeze and make no choice; make
the wrong choice; make the right choice but then question our decision.
 
Faced with choice overload we may find ourselves with decision fatigue.  We worry, because a world of possibilities can also be a world of missed opportunities!
 
Every day we make hundreds and thousands of decisions.  Despite it being a common activity, making decisions is actually quite difficult for most people.
 
Join us to discover tips on:
feeling less anxiety and have greater
satisfaction with whatever you choose
limiting the number of options
how to make decision-making easy


Date: 09/08/2009   4.30pm – 6.00pm
