Wisdom lies in living in the present, in the pulsating life energy. When we come into the vibrant present, there is no room for the past. It is possible to live this way even in our relationships so that we can be free from past hurts and the petty promptings of the self-centered mind. (Dada Gavand)

Human society exists because it is impossible for us to live in isolation. Since we must live together we should do so with a positive attitude of concern for one another. (Dalai Lama)

Everyone is now seeking comfort and pleasure; that is the be-all and end-all of all efforts. If you tell a person that he can eat whatever he likes and as much as he likes, he will be delighted; but if you add that, as a consequence, he might develop some illness or other, he will treat you as an enemy. Control or regimen is never popular. But strength is derived only from control, restraint, and regulation. You become tough and capable of endurance only if you welcome hardships. Struggle, and you get the strength to succeed. Seek the basis for the seen, in the unseen. The tall skyscraper has a deep base reaching into the earth. This seen world has, as its base, the unseen Divine (Paramatma); your body is but the vehicle through which you can search, investigate, and discover that base!

Now, engage yourself in spiritual discipline, spiritual thoughts and spiritual company. Forget the past. At least from now on, seek to save yourself. Never yield to doubt or unsteadiness. That is a sign of ignorance. Have faith in any one name and the form indicated by that name. If you revere Shiva and hate Vishnu, the plus and the minus cancel out and the net result is zero. I will not tolerate the slightest hatred of any Name or Form. The wife has to revere the husband, but that does not mean that she has to hate his parents, brothers or sisters. You can never attain the Lord through hatred of one or more of His many Forms and Names. If you throw contempt at the God that another reveres, the contempt falls on your own God. Avoid factions, quarrelling, hating, scorning and fault-finding; they recoil on you. Remember, everyone is a pilgrim towards the same goal; some travel by one road, some by another.

The lesser the structure in our life, the greater the rupture the mind can cause in our life Our mind is restless (Bhagavad-gita 06.34) – it's like a child. Children can spend their entire day or even their entire life playing with toys. Therefore, their guardians bring some structure to their lives by allotting some time to go to school, some time to study and so forth.

We may be adults, but our mind remains childishly restless. Suppose, on waking up in the morning, our mind suggests that we watch TV. We might watch for some time, but will stop thereafter if our life is structured, whereby certain things such as going to work need to be done at certain times. If, however, it's an unstructured weekend, we might spend the whole day or even the whole weekend glued to the idiot box.
Nowadays, technology, especially the internet, has opened almost unending doors for distraction and delusion. Consequently, the rupture the mind can cause in our life is almost unlimited. Consider students during the preparatory leave before a critical exam. Their mind may suggest that they can surf for just a few minutes, but, without the structure of a college schedule, they may keep surfing for hours or even days, wrecking their study plans.
That's why we all need some structure for our life: some fixed times, or at least time ranges, to wake up, to sleep, to take our meals, to read, to exercise, to do our spiritual practices.
What is the structure feels too restrictive? Then, by experience and self-observation, we can gradually adapt the structure to suit our needs and nature. A rigid structure may not work for us; but without a structure, we may not work.
By designing a customized structure for ourselves, we can gradually progress toward creating a life that is meaningful, productive and fulfilling.
Think it over:
List three occasions when lack of structure has let you get excessively distracted. List three occasions when a structure has protected you from the mind's distractions. List three things that are most important for you. Plan how you can structure your life around those things. https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gitadaily.com%2F%3Fp%3D20229&picture=http://www.gitadaily.com/wp-content/images/Bhagavad-Gita-Chapter-06-Text-34.jpg http://twitter.com/share?text=The%20lesser%20the%20structure%20in%20our%20life%2C%20the%20greater%20the%20rupture%20the%20mind%20can%20cause%20in%20our%20life&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gitadaily.com%2F%3Fp%3D20229&hashtags= https://plus.google.com/share?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gitadaily.com%2F%3Fp%3D20229 http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gitadaily.com%2F%3Fp%3D20229&media=http://www.gitadaily.com/wp-content/images/Bhagavad-Gita-Chapter-06-Text-34.jpg&description=Our%20mind%20is%20restless%20%28Bhagavad-gita%2006.34%29%20%E2%80%93%20it%E2%80%99s%20like%20a%20child.%20Children%20can%20spend%20their%20entire%20day%20or%20even%20their%20entire%20life%20playing%20with%20toys.%20Therefore%2C%20their%20guardians%20bring%20some%20structure%20to%20their%20lives%20by%20allotting%20some%20time%20to%20go%20to%20school%2C%20some%20time%20to%20study%20and%20so%20forth.We%20may%20be... http://bhagavadgitaclass.com/bhagavad-gita-chapter-06-text-34

Benefits of Being Polite

We all believe in the philosophy that the essence of life is talking. Communicating with others is as necessary as food. If we don't, we tend to fall ill. Today people are rarely talking.

The art of conversation has almost died down. People just usually sit and chat in their office breaks about things that are not even worth thinking about. Lets face it; we all are going towards doom where each one of us is talking to pass/kill time. The art of using communication is no more existing. People are concerned about others influence in their lives and not about their influence in others life.

It is an unbelievable thing that an effective communication through polite words can have wonderful impact on you and others lives as well. You can win the hearts of many people, climb the corporate ladder, have promotions but not have wonderful relationship with people around you.

The path to a successful life comes thorough the stairs of politeness. An act of politeness can do wonders that no monetary thing can do. Let us go deep in the art of efficient speaking by these methods.

Talking about ideas and not people

Its truly said, great minds talk about ideas and small minds talk about people. Politeness is an attitude of life. Talking about ideas heightens your politeness towards innovations and stimulates your mind too. This is effective for the speaker and the listener both. To start talking about people you can breathe out all negative energies about anyone: latest crush, which dress she wears, which perfume she uses, her bad attitude. The idea is that everything you talk about people usually comes negative. This develops a feeling of self love and comparison at all means. You do not value your life as much as you do to others.

Using intellect instead of the tongue

Usually people chatter on at length not worrying about the impact it would have on others. Since people are so occupied in themselves theyd rather talk about themselves only. This instigates them to speak rubbish endlessly. Have you ever thought how much of an impact we can have on others by our words? By trying to use our brains before speaking, we will save others sentiments and preserve a healthy relationship between our near ones.

Avoiding gossip

The one who usually starts a gossip or backbiting about someone does not know that he is the one to have the last laugh. People who start commenting and spreading rumors about others usually end up in a muck of politics and bickering about themselves from the other end. Such people should be avoided at arm's length. Even listening to gossip is as harmful since the listener had the power to listen to negative communication. This unhealthy gossiping could have been stopped if the listener would have ignored the speaker.

Exchange of compliments

We should not limit our compliment intake be restricted to our close relatives. People like our helpers such as servants, cleaners, house maids are those on whom we can count on. Speaking politely to them will ensure that your day is made. They are the ones who offer your services to make your life comfortable. So we should make endeavors to enrich their lives by complimenting and praising them.

Look for positive things in negative people

We all have negative and positive sides. Nobody on this earth has a squeaky clean nature. We all have flaws, however some people are observed negatively by their rude behavior and we become very judgmental about them putting them in the negative category. We should understand that people who are rude have their own weaknesses. They do not choose to be like that. Frustrations at work or domestic front make them act in this behavior. Such people should be offered more help than others comparatively. Talking politely with them will make a difference in their lives and yours too.

Feel positive about you all the time

Quite often we do not realize that we subconsciously become negative. Pent up emotions and unfulfilled desires make us behave rudely towards others and emit negative radiations from the body. Thus we tend to overreact and become rude and harsh to others in some or the other way. This might demolish the social circle that we have. So politeness in the hearts at all means will result in polite attitude.

Whatever is rested in your heart is bound to come out in the open some or the other day. Make sure you have a prosperous life with a polite attitude and selfless love. This will make you immortal in the hearts of millions as people are going to remember for your polite words and not by your status.

A photographer once clicked a photograph of ex-president of India, Dr. Kalam with a shawl placed on his shoulder. After the photo shoot was over, the photographer rudely took off the shawl and walked off. The President smiled. After being asked about his composed behaviouir, he politely answered that maybe the photographer needed the shawl more than he did, and continued his work.

People with big positions come and go but it is only their humble nature that draws millions of people towards them. Their polite words filled to the brim with modesty and love melt the hearts of even the rudest amongst the crowd. By talking politely to all we can make an impact on others lives.
