9 Rules for Staying Positive By Junaid Tahir
Straight to the point, below are my 9 self-created rules in order to stray positive and live a stress free life:
1- I must develop the power of not looking back in the past to read the old chapters of life again and again because I cannot go back to my past to fix things. Whatever has happened has happened. Now is the time to review the lessons learnt once and then focus on to improve my present and future.
2- I have to stay away from negative souls which means I have to avoid spending time with people doing back-biting, criticising, cursing, complaining, conspiring, corrupting and complicating. (More about the 6 Cs can be read at this link).
3- I have to stop judging others for their actions. I must mind my own business instead of interpreting their actions and commenting in negative way. Thinking and speaking about others pollutes my thoughts and steals my peace of mind.
4- I must develop the habit of gratitude. Which means that at the end of each day I must refresh the fact that I am better than billions of the people of the world. Being healthy, not in debt, sleeping on the bed, eating 3 times a day and using internet are the great blessings billions of people don't enjoy. (Some pictures here). People possessing high level of gratitude strengthen positive powerful thoughts.
5- I must spend time in reading good books, visiting websites on positivity, liking Facebook pages containing quotes and reading inspirational stories on daily basis. This will help remove negative impurities from my personality and empower my positive personality trait.
6- I must stop being explosive and reactive to people and situations. I must stay positive about other's feelings and respect their opinions because every soul is unique in thinking so I should avoid imposing my thoughts to others. I must confess the fact that I can be wrong at times so understanding other's perspective be being empathic is very important for me to avoid building stress reducing my self-positivity-index.
7- I must be positive about my circumstances even if they are not so good. I have to understand the fact that time does not stop so I have to start taking the necessary actions to expedite the change process. One thousand plans cannot be equal to the power of one great step taken right now!!!
8- I must of focus on spiritual awakening acts such as a) frequent attacks of smiling, loss of ability in conflicts, loss of ability to judging others, ability to react to things as they happen instead of living in fears and so on.
9- I must focus on improving the quality of my thoughts because quality of thoughts determine the level of peace of mind. (Reasons for Negative thoughts can be read here)

Power of Positive Talk & Encouragement
A man was lost while driving through the countryside. As he tried to reach for the map, he accidentally drove off the road into a ditch. Though he wasn't injured, his car was stuck deep in the mud. So the man walked to a nearby farm to ask for help. "Warwick can get you out of that ditch," said the farmer, pointing to a Person standing in a field. The man looked at the Person and looked at the farmer who just stood there repeating, "Yep, old Warwick can do the job." The man figured he had nothing to lose. The two men and the Person made their way back to the ditch. The farmer hitched the Person to the car. With a snap of the reins, he shouted,

"Pull, Fred! Pull, Jack! Pull, Ted! Pull, Warwick!" Go ahead. And the Person pulled that car right out of the ditch. The man was amazed. He thanked the farmer, patted the mule, and asked, "Why did you call out all of those names before you called Warwick?" The farmer grinned and said, "Old Warwick is blind. As long as he believes he's part of a team, he doesn't mind pulling." You see all it matters is encouragement and a sense of care to say "You can do it". If so, you would witness incredible job.

వాల్మీక రామాయణం సుందరకాండలో 42వ సర్గలో 32 నుండి 36 వరకు గల నాలుగు శ్లోకాలు 'జయ మంత్ర'ముగా పేర్కొన్నారు పెద్దలు. ఆ శ్లోకములు మరియు అర్థము (విద్వాన్ డా. పమిడికాల్వ చెంచు సుబ్బయ్య)
33.
జయ త్యతిబలో రామో లక్ష్మణ శ్చ మహాబలః |
రాజా జయతి సుగ్రీవో రాఘవేణాభిపాలితః ||
34.
దాసో2హం కోసలేంద్రస్య రామస్యాక్లిష్టకర్మణః |
హనుమాన్ శత్రుసైన్యానాం నిహంతా మారుతాత్మజః ||
35.
న రావణ సహస్రం మే యుద్ధే ప్రతిబలం భవేత్ |
శిలాభి స్తు ప్రహరతః పాదపై శ్చ సహస్రశః ||
36.
అర్దయిత్వా పురీం లంకామ్ అభివాద్య చ మైథిలీమ్ |
సమృద్ధార్థో గమిష్యామి మిషతాం సర్వరక్షసామ్ ||

"మహాబల సంపన్నుడైన శ్రీరామునికి జయం! మహా పరాక్రమ సంపన్నుడైన లక్ష్మణుకి జయం! శ్రీరామునికి విధేయుడుగా ఉంటూ కిష్కింధారాజ్య ప్రభువైన సుగ్రీవునికి జయం! అసహాయ శూరుడు, కోసలదేశ ప్రభువైన శ్రీరామునికి నేను దాసుణ్ణి. వాయుపుత్రుణ్ణి. శత్రుసైన్యాలను హతమార్చేవాణ్ణి. నా పేరు హనుమంతుడు. వేయిమంది రావణులైన నన్ను ఎదిరించి, నిల్వలేరు. వేలకొలదీ శిలలతో, వృక్షాలతో రాక్షసులందరినీ, లంకాపురాన్నీ నాశనం చేస్తాను. నా కార్యం ముగించుకొని, సీతాదేవికి నమస్కరించి వెళ్తాను, చూస్తుండండి."
ఇక్కడ హనుమంతుని ఉత్సాహ వాక్కులు 'జయతి' అనే మాటతో మొదలయ్యాయి. ఇందులో రామ-లక్ష్మణ-సుగ్రీవులకు జయాన్ని కోరడం జరిగింది. జయమహామంత్రమైన ఈ నాలుగు శ్లోకాలను నిత్యం భక్తి-శ్రద్ధలతో పారాయణం (జపం) చేస్తే, సర్వత్రా జయం, బాహ్య-అంత-శత్రుత్వం మీద విజయం మరియు సకల కార్య సిద్ధి కల్గి, బౌతికంగా, ఆధ్యాత్మికంగా ఆనందజీవనులవుతారని పెద్దల సూచన.

సామవేదీయం
(బ్రహ్మశ్రీ సామవేదం వారి ప్రవచనాల నుండి సేకరించినవారు: శ్రీ దినవహి హనుమంతరావు)
ప్రహ్లాదునికి విష్ణువు పట్ల ఉన్నది నమ్మకం కాదు, అనుభవం. నమ్మకం కన్నా అనుభవం చాలా గొప్పది.
అర్థం తెలిసే దాకానే మతం, అర్థం తెలుసుకుంటే ఆధ్యాత్మికత.
తెలిసిన కథను పట్టుకొని తెలియవలసిన తత్త్వాన్ని తెలుసుకోవడమే ప్రవచన పరమార్థం.
దివ్యమైన మౌనం వైపు తీసుకువెళ్ళేదే నిజమైన ఉపాసన. భగవదనుభవమే మౌనం.
సృష్టిలో 'ఇచ్చిన' వారి పేరే నిలుస్తుంది. దాచుకున్నవాడి పేరు నిలవదు.
ధర్మరాజుల మనం ఉండగలిగితే శ్రీకృష్ణుడు మన ప్రక్కనే ఉంటాడు.
దేవతారూపం సూక్ష్మ దృష్టికే గోచరిస్తుంది. అది తపస్సు వలననే సాధ్యమౌతుంది.
జ్ఞానం పొందడమంటే తెలుసుకోవడం కాదు ... అనుభవించడం.
మాయను తన చేతిలో ఉంచుకున్న వాడు శివుడు. మాయ చేతిలోనివాడు జీవుడు.

The Sadhu and the money pot
After visiting Dhaka, Guru Nanakji and Bhai Mardana travelled through forests and fields, spreading the message of Ik Omkar's love for all to everyone they met. The sun was beginning to set as they entered the coastal town of Puri.
A gentle breeze was blowing as they walked toward the beach. Bhai Mardana gasped with amazement on seeing the sandy shores. "Guruji, the sand is so beautiful. Please, can we spend the night on the beach?" "As you wish, Mardana," replied Guruji, smiling. Bhai Mardana was thrilled.
Soon, stars began to appear in the night sky and the only sound that could be heard was the gentle rise and fall of the waves. The light of the sparkling stars shone upon the water. While Guruji was quietly enjoying this beauty, Bhai Mardana began to get involved in what was happening a few feet away from them.
A sadhu had just laid out his mat neatly on the sand. He then sat down in lotus position, placed a pot in front of him and turned his face upwards. His head seemed to be touching his back. "Guruji, why is the sadhu looking at the sky?" "Wait and see what happens," replied Guruji, as he lay down to sleep. Bhai Mardana could not sleep. He kept watching the sadhu.
As the night progressed, people began to arrive. They bowed before the sadhu, put money in his pot and sat down in front of him. Bhai Mardana grew curious. As soon as Guruji woke up, he said, "Guruji, something very strange is going on. Look how many people have gathered around the sadhu. He has not opened his eyes all night. What do you think is happening?"
Guruji smiled and said, "Mardana, why don't you go and ask someone?" Bhai Mardana quickly walked over, gently tapped a man's shoulder and asked him to explain what was going on. The man replied in a hushed voice, "The brahmin is a very great master. Every morning at sunrise, he opens his eyes and tells us what is happening in the heavens."
"Really? Does he also tell you how to get close to god?" asked Bhai Mardana. "No, no. He tells us what the gods and goddesses are doing. He also tells us how our day will be. I come here every morning to listen to him," replied the man reverentially.
Bhai Mardana was puzzled. He went back to Guruji and recounted everything. Guruji walked over to where the sadhu was sitting, gently picked up the money pot and put it behind the sadhu's back and then sat down among the people.
As the sun rose, the brahmin slowly opened his eyes, straightened his neck, and looked at the people around him. "Blessings upon all of you who are here," he said. "I am happy to tell you that there is a great celebration going on in the heavens. God Vishnu is having a wonderful conversation with god Indra. Beautiful hymns are being sung in the heavens. It is going to be a very good day for all of you. May the gods fill your homes with wealth and happiness."
"Brahminji, are you sure that is what is happening in the heavens?" asked Guruji gently. The brahmin was shocked. No one had ever dared to question him. "I have told you what is happening in the heavens. But a child like you cannot be expected to know the mysteries of the heavens, let alone what is happening there. I have achieved great powers after many years of intense yogic practices. I can see what is happening in all the three regions. I can see below this earth, on the earth and also in the heavens," boasted the brahmin.
"Then," said Guruji, "you will most definitely be able to see where your money pot is." The brahmin looked around but could not see his money pot. He became angry and shouted, "return my pot immediately, before I curse you."
"Brahminji, why don't you use your power of yoga to find your money pot?" asked Guruji. The brahmin went red in the face. Some people started giggling, which made him even more furious. "People who make fun of a brahmin will be ruined forever," he said.
Hearing his angry words, the people got scared and became silent. Guruji spoke: "Some people try to mislead the world by shutting their eyes and holding their nostrils closed. They close their nostrils with their fingers, and claim to see the three worlds, but cannot even see what is behind them. What a strange lotus pose this is!"
"Brahminji," continued Guruji, "How can you claim to see what is happening in the heavens when you could not see the money pot sitting behind you? Now tell me, are you really looking into the heavens, or are you fooling the people?" The brahmin quickly got up, grabbed his money pot and left. The people were very impressed with Guruji's simple logic. Some of them even invited him to come and stay with them, but Guruji replied, "I'm happy to stay where I am."

What is our greatest treasure is often not what we treasure the greatest Suppose a child is asked to choose between a toy and a million-dollar-check. The child may grab the toy, not knowing that the check can get thousands of toys.

We are often like that child. Our evaluation gets skewed especially when we comparatively assess our material assets and our spiritual assets. Our material assets are wealth, property, investments and so forth. Our spiritual asset is our realization of our spirituality: our identity as souls and of our relationship with the supreme spiritual reality, Krishna.
Our misevaluation may continue even after we become nominally religious; we may still treasure material possessions more than spiritual realizations. What Krishna gives us may matter more to us than Krishna and our connection with Krishna. If we don't get the material things we seek from him, we may discontinue the devotional practices that connect us with him.
Protecting us from such misevaluation, Gita wisdom explains that our material assets are important, but they can't fill our life with meaning or contentment. And they will be lost at death or maybe even earlier. Only our spiritual realizations will stay with us forever (Bhagavad-gita 02.40)..
How can we grow spiritually? By nourishing our intelligence with Gita wisdom and diligently engaging in bhakti-yoga practices for remembering Krishna.. Over time, and especially amidst adversities, we will experience that our remembrance of Krishna shelters and strengthens us even when our worldly treasures let us down. Thus, we will gradually come to the realization of the topmost spiritualists (06.22): nothing is more valuable than absorption in Krishna.
Just as a child, on growing up, starts treasuring the check, we too start treasuring Krishna more as we grow up spiritually. Indeed, spiritual growth essentially means that our conception of our greatest treasure becomes increasingly aligned with our greatest treasure.
Think it over:
How does Gita wisdom protect us from misevaluation of our assets? How can we come to the realization of the topmost spiritualists? What does spiritual growth essentially mean? https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gitadaily.com%2F%3Fp%3D20056&picture=http://www.gitadaily.com/wp-content/images/Bhagavad-Gita-Chapter-06-Text-22.jpg http://twitter..com/share?text=What%20is%20our%20greatest%20treasure%20is%20often%20not%20what%20we%20treasure%20the%20greatest&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gitadaily.com%2F%3Fp%3D20056&hashtags= https://plus.google.com/share?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gitadaily.com%2F%3Fp%3D20056 http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gitadaily.com%2F%3Fp%3D20056&media=http://www.gitadaily.com/wp-content/images/Bhagavad-Gita-Chapter-06-Text-22.jpg&description=Suppose%20a%20child%20is%20asked%20to%20choose%20between%20a%20toy%20and%20a%20million-dollar-check.%20The%20child%20may%20grab%20the%20toy%2C%20not%20knowing%20that%20the%20check%20can%20get%20thousands%20of%20toys.We%20are%20often%20like%20that%20child.%20Our%20evaluation%20gets%20skewed%20especially%20when%20we%20comparatively%20assess%20our%20material%20assets%20and%20our%20spiritual... http://bhagavadgitaclass.com/bhagavad-gita-chapter-06-text-20-23

Chaitanya or consciousness is present in the smallest to the biggest. From your point of view, an object may appear to be inert, but from the Vedic point of view, everything is Chaitanya. It is foolish to overlook the existence of Chaitanya. One may question, if it is all-pervasive, why is it not visible to the naked eye? You are all well aware of the fact that there is butter in every drop of milk. Can you deny its existence merely because it is not visible to the naked eye? The process of obtaining butter involves curdling the milk and then churning it. People are unable to perceive this Chaitanya principle because of two defects: 1. They overlook their innumerable mistakes, and 2. Magnify the minutest mistake of others. One can attain Divinity only when one stops this. It is a great sin to search for others' faults. Instead, look for your own. Consider your smallest defect as a great blunder and try to rectify the same.
