Greetings and welcome to Awakening With Brahma Kumaris. Welcome, Sister. Om Shanti. Om Shanti and welcome to Soul Reflections. Thank you. Sister, as usual, I would like to read something. I am not clear on a few things here, let me read it out. Keep imagining yourself glowing more and more with light. This is the way you become light. Everything is in the thought and intention. The world is made out of thoughts. It is all about the power of thoughts. Believe something at slowly you will become that thing. We need to take this line back – believe something and slowly you will become that thing. Which means whatever thought we create, where is its first effect created? On our mind. When we create any thought about ourselves – it could be any thought, absolutely anything. If we keep creating that over a period of time, we will slowly become that thing. And then when we become that thing, we will again create those thoughts. So we become all the more like that. Suppose I create a thought that I am weak. Either I heard from someone about me, or somebody came and told me directly, or maybe I myself feel that I am weak. So I keep on thinking – I am weak, I cannot do this, I tried doing and I know I can’t do it, I am weak. We also keep saying – I am not a saint. Saints will have the power to do it. Okay. I am not a saint, which means what am I? We say – People keep asking me not to get angry. As if I am a saint? I am just a normal human being. When we say this, we give ourselves a line – I am not a saint. Today let us give ourselves a different line – I am a saint. And it says believe it and you will become that thing. It says keep imagining that light and you will become that light. But there is a word here that “slowly” you will become. This slowly is troubling me because I have tried so many times but by evening itself I fail. Yes you thought about it. But you need to check if along with that, you also created other thoughts. I don’t have an answer whether along with that I thought of something else. Why is there no answer? Let us check right now. Suppose you said one thought is – I am not a saint. And the second thought we are creating is – I am a saint. Suppose at the beginning I created a thought I am a saint. Then a few more times in the day also, I create the same thought that I am a saint. But around10 times in the day I also created a thought – I am not a saint. So what will be the result? Because of the mixture of thoughts there will be no outcome. The thought which is created more number of times Suppose I take a paper. I draw a white circle on it and I also draw a black circle on it. Then again I draw 1 white circle and 4 black circles. Then again I remember so I draw 2 white circles. But when I forget, I draw 5 black circles. So what will the net drawing be?
Black. So when we say believe something and you will become that It means you believe it and the whole day you think only of it. You will become that. If you create that thought 4 times a day, but the opposite thought 15 times a day. Then that will not happen. The thought which you created 15 times will become the reality. Because what is the predominant thought? Believe something and you will become that. If you create one thought as I am a peaceful soul. But 4 times you create a thought that anger is natural. And then again twice you say – no, I am a peaceful soul. But later again you say nothing gets done without using anger. So whatever we think more is what we become. And whatever we believe is what we become. So what will be the net result and what will we become? I am an angry soul. This is what we will become. Because we thought more about that. Like you said, you had thought that by evening you are going to do a particular thing. I had thought that way, but by evening the opposite happened. So we need to check – that what we thought during the day about doing that activity – had we created any opposite thought also? You don’t remember that? Going forward, we will check that. We need to check this point. Sister I wanted to know – you mentioned about believing. That it should be a solid belief. For example if I am asked to fill up a form and there is a column to select the gender. Even by mistake I will not go wrong there. This kind of strong belief our faith is so difficult to get in all aspects. The moment we say that something is difficult, that is it. It means we have made it difficult for ourselves now. Every single thought and every single line We need to be very careful before thinking and speaking them. Because that line has power within it. And That Power gets manifested. It gets manifested into reality. Suppose there is a problem in our life currently – maybe in a relationship, or in business. Let us say there is a big issue going on. So we travel a long distance to meet a Saint or a Mahatma. And we request them to bless us. We explain our problems to them. They will neither think of the problem nor will they speak about it. They will only give us a blessing. What will be the blessing? Whatever you want will happen. They will never think or ask you – oh, it is such a big problem, what will you do now, how will you handle it, not sure what will happen now, and so on. They will never say such things. They will only create one thought and speak one line. And they will say success is guaranteed for you. And then we say we got a blessing. That blessing has a lot of power in it. Now I got an answer to my belief – that my work will get done successfully because they have blessed me. So what is the equation that is getting fitted within? That we went to them, they blessed us. Their blessings have power. Then we created a thought – now that we have their blessings my work will be completed successfully. So what thought did we create? That the work will now get done. Now it will get done. But what is the reason for it to get done? What was my belief? This work will get done. But once it is done, we say it got done because of whom? Because of their blessings. Which is partially correct. But we need to see the entire equation. They gave us a powerful thought. We took that powerful thought and we ourselves created a powerful thought. And because we created a powerful thought, the work got done. Actually, they are just catalysts. But at this time catalyst is very important. What is the role of the catalyst here? I the soul I am not able to create the right thoughts towards myself or towards my work which is to be done. I am just not able to create right thoughts. My thoughts are full of worry and fear. That I am not able to do it and my work is also not going well. So I go to someone who is now being a catalyst. So what is the catalyst doing – he is changing my thoughts. So the catalyst is also powerful. In America because of the cold our vehicles do not start sometimes. So we would use other people’s car batteries just for a minute and give it back. So our vehicles would start and they had no problem either. Their vehicle was anyway on the move. Yes they would just stop for a minute and lend the battery for a minute. So we went to them and got a kick start. We found them to be a catalyst. So after taking powerful thoughts from a Saint or a Mahatma who is a catalyst in this case. What was our thought? But now my work will get done. Suppose they gave a thought as – You will definitely be successful. So we will also create a thought – Yes, I am going to be successful. I will surely be successful. Why? Because they have said so. But when we ourselves create a thought that I will be successful. So what happens here inside? No matter who the catalyst was. What starts happening here now? A thought process got initiated. I will be successful. I am going to be successful. My success is guaranteed. So what vibrations are getting created? Keep believing and you will become that. Suppose we went to them and got blessings that our success is guaranteed. We come back home and are very happy that we have got a powerful blessing. So we feel we will definitely be successful now. But then during the day while we are busy with other things, if we create few thoughts of the opposite quality Suppose we think – Yes they have blessed me. But is it possible to be successful? Yes, we even compare as – If it really works, then why did that person fail? He has been going there for years. So a lot of inner commentary starts about other people. We will look at other peoples also but think even our own issue saying – He said it will all be fine but there are 10 problems here. Let me go and meet someone else.
Yes we do this. But important is, whether you go to anybody or even to everybody for that matter Everybody will bless you. But unless and until you give blessings to yourself, the manifestation of success will be difficult. That is a beautiful line – that we need to bless ourselves. If I reflect on an entire day from morning to evening – I have never blessed myself. I only keep saying that I did this mistake, I should have done like that, I ate more, I slept longer – so I have never blessed myself. I have never said to myself that I did a good deed, I did not raise my voice even though the other person was not nice to me, that I didn’t complain about the food although it was spicy. I have never blessed myself like this. So today you have brought up an altogether new topic. What you are saying now is appreciation. Blessing is to be given before we do the Karma or act. What you are mentioning now is that you are not appreciating yourself. You did the right things but did not acknowledge or appreciate yourself for that. We definitely need to do that. But what is a blessing? Suppose you are not able to do things correctly today. There is a situation and you got angry. Somebody said something, again you got angry. What you mentioned is appreciation after you did the right thing, which is very important. But suppose we did not do anything right throughout the day. If you have not done anything right and then you go and meet a Saint or Mahatma And then you tell them that you just can’t do things correctly. You say – you keep getting angry the whole day, you do this and that, and so on. Now they have to bless us. What is their role and why have we gone to them? We ask them to bless us. We go to people and request their blessings. Because we want to fill their positive energy within us. So we seek the blessings of a Saint. Supposed today we got angry 10 times and then we go and meet a Saint. We tell them we can’t let go of anger so we seek blessings to get over it. How will they bless you? They will say – may good things happen to you, everything will be fine, your anger will go by itself, everything will be fine. So every line is pure, powerful and positive. That is why we call them a blessing. If we go to a parent and tell them that we got angry 10 times today, they may even say – you are always angry. No idea how you will get over this habit. They may even ask – if this goes on then how will you survive? So what we got from here was blessing, and what we got from the other side was of the opposite energy. Are we able to see the difference in energy between blessing and the other quality? Why are we having to go to Saints or Mahatmas to seek blessings? Blessings are what we can give to ourselves and to other people around us. Listening to you I feel even worry is a kind of opposite energy of blessing. Very important. I used to tell my children – Tomorrow when you get married and you behave in this manner, will your spouse like it? Nobody can tolerate this. And then I observed also the change. I saw the result of my blessing. This is our power. Whatever we think and speak gets manifested. Along with concern and worry there is a slight negativity going in. When that negativity goes in. Sometimes I say I am concerned about this child as I don’t know how what he would do tomorrow. I don’t use the word worry there. Along with that I also say he never listens to me. He is like this since childhood. So it means I give him the opposite of blessing. He never listened to me when he was 5. even now when he is 10 years old, he does not listen. He doesn’t listen to anyone even at school and so on. Now we are clear of how we keep giving the opposite of blessing throughout the day. But I had understood it as worry and concern. We are worried, we have concern and we do care. But what are we giving? The opposite of blessings. So throughout the day if we give the opposite of blessings to ourselves, to our children, to our business. So all of us together are giving the opposite of blessing to ourselves, our family, our house and our business. And then all of us go to meet a Mahatma and request them to bless the family. We also wonder if it is the effect of somebody’s evil eye or black magic because of which we are all uneasy. Whatever blessing they give to our family Let us just create one thought today. Whatever blessing they give to us If we start giving the same to ourselves everyday And if we start giving that blessing to our family, our home and our business Then what will be the reality? But till we understand that we have the power to bless our self A blessing is just a blessing. What does a blessing mean? Like how I was mentioning about using another car’s battery to start my car. What is wrong in that? There is absolutely nothing wrong in it. But after I took their blessings, did I keep my quality of thoughts along those lines for the rest of my life? That’s very important. If I do not do that, then that blessing was only to start the vehicle. Is it not? After that who has to drive the vehicle? The vehicle might stop again. Then again you take somebody’s blessings and after sometime the vehicle will again stop. Again you take blessings and again the vehicle will stop. How will you get the result? Suppose we have a Sanskar of anger and we take somebody’s blessings. Assume they say – you are a peaceful soul. This is a blessing. Blessing is not the reality that we see at the moment. What you want to become – that is a blessing. Suppose you go to them and discuss issues in a relationship. You tell them there is way too much problem in that relationship. They will say don’t worry this relationship will be the best. This is a blessing. But once we come back home with that blessing What is that line saying about manifesting? What you believe is what you will become. The line does not say – what others believe for you is what you will become. Whatever you think for yourself is what you will become. If somebody blesses me saying you are a peaceful soul. But after coming back home I keep thinking – but I get angry so often, they are telling me I am peaceful but it’s not possible, I got angry at such a small thing today. If I keep saying – My Sanskar will not change, the Sanskar of anger is too deep and strong to change. After I create such thoughts, how will that blessing help me now? Talking of belief systems, I used to go to a particular doctor who lived quite far away. Neither was he famous nor was his clinic big enough. But I believed that his medicines will cure me. Even if he just packed Vitamin C in a packet and give it to me, I would recover. So you had the belief. What you believe, you become. We have to use this power. Let us all create a blessing for ourselves today. Latest do this now. Whatever we wish to become We need to start blessing ourselves with that. We need to start blessing ourselves, of whatever we want to become. We should say – I am this. I am a Saint. I am pure, I am a powerful soul. I have great will power. I have got blessings with me. All these thoughts are not what we should create only for 5 minutes. This has to be our thought. Even if there is a situation that comes up, this has to be our thought. When that thought becomes our predominant thought Which means if I draw a white circle 20 times on a paper Then even if just once or twice I draw a black circle, the black will not have a significant effect. Because what is my predominant thought for powerful thought? I am this. Now let us start blessing ourselves. We need to bless our self. We were not even aware that we can bless ourselves. We always seek other people’s blessings. Whoever we come across we ask them to bless our family, our house, our kids. Why are we not blessing? Self-help is the best help. Why? Because we are living with our self. Whatever thoughts we create throughout the day becomes a blessing for the self. Can you please read that quotation again for us? Keep imagining yourself glowing. More and more with light. Let us just take this one line. Keep imagining yourself glowing more and more with light. Which means – right now I am very upset and sad. There is no light around me right now and things are very dark. But the line says – keep imagining yourself glowing and glowing with light. So I need to create a thought now. I am going to bless myself and change my reality. Right now the aura all around me is dark But I need to take it towards light. I need to change my Aura. To change my aura, what should I change? My thoughts. Now suppose my order is at 50% black. So it is at 50%, let us say. So with the 50% dark aura, if I create thoughts like – there is so much problem, anger is natural, I am not able to do this task, she does not listen to me, and so on. If I create such thoughts what will happen to the 50%?
That also turns to black. How is aura formed? Based on the total of all our thoughts. Suppose today my reality is that – there are 4 weaknesses in me and there are four relationships which are conflicted at home. My aura is 50% black. Now if I keep on thinking about the reality. Then it becomes 100% black. This is it. We are clear with this now. Ok let us leave aura aside. Let us take a problem in our life for now. Let everyone watching the program also think of it. Let us all bring to our mind, any one problem we are facing. Done? Let us fit it here like this. You can do it now. Any problem that you take, hold it at 50%. It could be related to your mind, your physical health, your relationships or any other problem in your life. So your problem is fitting in this space. Now start giving it thoughts – this is a problem, I have this problem, it is such a big problem, how will it get resolved, till now it hasn’t got solved, what will I do next, what will happen to my future? Once we start giving such thoughts to this 50% throughout the day And the too for many days, then what will happen to this? Are you sure it’ll keep increasing? So if it is at 50% and I start giving it such thoughts, it will at least go to 60%? And then I discussed this problem with other people. So they also gave it similar thoughts. So it increases further. This is what we are doing in our life today. There is a problem in reality. We are not saying there is no problem. There is a problem in our reality today. But right now that problem is at 50%. But we have the power to take that problem from 50% to 60%. And we also have the power to take that problem from 50% to 20%. When it was at 50% if I created thoughts that it is a problem and how to tackle it So it went from 50% to 60%. Now what should I do to bring it from 50% to 40%? Let’s hold it again like this. It will be fine, the problem will get resolved, the problem is probably only in my mind and not in my reality. Let us not say – the problem will get resolved. It is getting resolved? Or it has got resolved already? Yes. The thought should be – Everything is fine. That is the powerful energy that we have to give. If we look at the reality and create thoughts Then the reality will increase like this. And the reality which we want happening to us If we start thinking about that Then whatever we are thinking will become the reality. It is also possible sister that the problem is only this size but I am magnifying it through my thoughts? So the problem is of this size. I am magnifying it in my thoughts. And through my thoughts I will magnify it further. This is how problems magnify. There is a problem. A magnify it and start thinking about it. And then I magnified further with my thoughts. Now we need to see that there is a problem, but how do we reduce its size? And then how to think right so that through our thoughts we reduce it further and finally finish it. Thank you so much sister, we will definitely resolve our problems. Thank you. Thank you. Om Shanti. Thank you.
