Intentions And Effects, by Gary Zukav

 Intention is the preliminary portal to  journey through till it reaches the action point.Just as good seeds tossed in  fertile soil yield good produce, so too good intentions strewn over all conscious self over a period of time yield the fruit of  good actions. 
No wonder, our elders keep saying that the thoughts need to be pure in order to give birth to good deeds.  Just as a seed holds the potential of growing into a huge forest, so also  a thought  packs in itself  a capsule  of powerful energy   waiting to burst forth into action.
There is a saying in sanskrit, yad bhaavam, tat bhavathi, which means as you feel , so it happens. If a t a thought level a negative feeling is nipped, it does not dare to see the light of action.
As the body is what it is fed, so is the mind. You are as healthy as  the diet you feed to yourself, both body and soul..
The writer is bang on the basics of life. 

 

Lessening the Power of Negative Emotions, by The Dalai Lama

FaceBook  On Oct 21, 2015 Aruna wrote:

 I  feel being angry and hurling vituperative epithets gives momentary relief giving us a false feel of putting others in place by our decibel power. But over a period of time, we realise being composed is more important than being caustically correct. I at times withdraw into a shell of silence when there are angry vibes all around, and at other times I isolate myself from that negative mood by not being a part of it. Angry thinking or demonstration of bouts of anger only empowers others, I tell myself.  So my way of anger control mechanism is to let others vent out their negative emotion and tell them how wrong they are at a later stage when the  anger cools down.
