Spiritual Attitude In Life !

There is a good and bad, and sometimes we catch a glimpse of the true Reality that is neither good nor bad. Good is what is helpful to spiritual life, bad is what is harmful to it. In us there are good elements and bad onces, Elimate the bad ones and take the good ones, and then go beyond both good and bad, We can least approach this ideal, and work our way towards perfection.

Do not get attached. Do not get upset. Try to see the reality behind the phenomenon. We should be kind but not blind. Have infinite sympathy. Pain and sorrow are a kind of education; bear them. Turn to God even through suffering. Also hunger for truth makes us turn to God.

We must be in tune with ourselves. if we are not in harmony, we prick others. Have harmony in mind and body. It is necessary to sublimate our feelings. If they are suppressed, they leak out again and again. Suppression or repression is not enough.
Dont be angery
Friends have to some extent similar vibrations. Sympathize with angry people. Have sympathy from higher plane. There are times when you are allowed to disagree with or scold others maintaining an amount of self-control. Then it won’t lead to quarrels or misunderstandings .if we have inner harmony we induce harmony in others. If we are restless, we have both inner and outer troubles.

We must first of all come to have a spiritual attitude towards ourselves, and only then can we establish a proper relationship between us and the Divine also with other people.
~ senior monk of Ramakrishna order

love All
Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.

If there is no place in spiritual life how can one cultivate 'spiritual attitude'
God has plan for everyone. If God has chosen someone then he certainly has plan for that one. In that case I may be a centre incharge but I cannot say 'This or that person has no place in spiritual life' - that is called pricking others. There is a story of how a person became 'VALMIKI' from 'VALIO' ( Good saint from very sinister person)in hindu scriptures. So God can change biggest sinister into biggest saint - no place in spiritual life is not a right statement, Certainly not for someone who has done reasonable and is willing to do reasonable. Be considerate and try to help someone instead of being an obstacle.

When 'VALMIKI' entered into spiritual life, Once has been come out from bad activities …

We are not saying that “there is NO spiritual life at all for selfish”, once they overcome the self-centred life then they can enter into spiritual life…

We are pointing what are the obstacles there to enter into spiritual life and trying to help others to overcome the obstacle…

Thanks for your comments...
