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.

Beautiful Quote about Peace…

At the end of the day, on the wings of your thoughts, go beyond the cares and troubles of the world.

Remove your mind from everything and everyone, and become blissfully detached, like a star.

Like a star, be free to radiate light, for your essence is light and peace. Enjoy the simplicity of the night sky, the peace.

And then, when you want to, you can shoot down to earth.

By BKWSU

Quote on Relationships….

In order to live in peace, try not to depend on anyone and at the same time try to help others not to depend on you.

Help them to become independent, free and responsible for their lives.

In the same way, ensure you do not cause anyone sorrow, and do not allow others to be a source of hurt for you.

From the Brahma Kumaris – World Spiritual University

Do Something Altruistic For Someone Everyday……..

This is a lovely exercise I found in the book – The Gift Of Peace – Thoughts for a Peaceful World written and produced by The Brahma Kumaris:

Do Something altruistic for someone everyday.

Develop the habit of enjoying doing this, not for any reward but just for the sake of it and discover the fruit of that action.

The best gift is to give happiness and to finish sorrow.

FREE EVENT: Managing Anger 18.10.09 @ 430pm London…..

Managing Anger Anger varies in intensity, ranging from mild irritation to violent rage. Whether expressed or suppressed. it makes you sick! The problem with getting angry is that there is only a slim chance that it might solve the problem, but a much greater chance that it’ll create new ones. Understanding anger is realising that anger can be a by-product of our own unfulfilled expectations, our way of thinking, rather than the other person or event. Managing Anger is about understanding and recognising anger. It’s about controlling your internal responses, calming yourself down and letting the feelings of anger subside. Remember, anger is only 1 letter away from danger!

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

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

FREE TALK – Honouring The Self 10.9.09 in Oxford……….

www.bkwsu.org

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. If you do go, please make a donation of whatever amount you can so that this great organisation can continue their work and help more people in need. Thanks.

 

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.

A Quote from “The Gift Of Peace”

www.bkwsu.orgThe Gift Of Peace is a small book published by the Brahma Kumaris that will cost you £2.00. The book was written by on of the long serving students and teacher of the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University just after he visited New York 3 weeks after September 11th 2001. It is a fantastic collection of thoughts, sayings and advice on how to be peaceful and happy.

Here is one excerpt that hit home for me:

Circumstances are like objects. They are not alive; you bring life to them.

The positive is more powerful than the negative. The positive is innate. The negative indicates what is missing inside you. Light exists and its absence is darkness.

Never forget you are a human being who can decide the attitude you take in life.

You have an enourmous positive inner potential still to be discovered. these thoughts will help you face any circumstance in life with a different perspective.  

This resonates a lot of truth for me when I sit back and think about it.

Thought Of The Day……….

As ever from the Brahma Kumaris. My first thought was Wow.
When someone has a habit of causing sorrow they are under an influence, let your attitude be merciful and don’t allow yourself to take that sorrow on.

Thought of the Day…………

When you build a house, every brick counts.

When you build a charachter, ever thought counts.

As usual, from the Brahma Kumaris.

Thought of the Day……….

From the Brahma Kumaris:

Take care of yourself with understanding and love, and make sure that you never compromise your own spiritual growth.
