How To Build Self Confidence Easily

How To Build Self Confidence Easily

Do you believe you are not a very self confident person? Personally I think we all possess some kind of self confidence to a certain level. Have you ever done certain thing with absolute certainty as if you are very sure about it? That’s self confidence.

We might have self confident in one thing but may not be self confident in another thing. For example, you may be confident in doing your work but may not be very confident when talking to your boss. It means, we do have self confidence, but we only lack of it in some areas. So, don’t ever say you don’t have self confidence because that’s wrong.

Do You Know Who You Are?

Do You Know Who You Are?

Everywhere I go, whether while shopping in the mall, in the restaurant while I am dining or when I am driving my car, I see people and I wonder about them. I wonder what is in their mind. I wonder about their innermost thinking.

Sometimes I see happy faces, sometimes I see sad faces, sometimes I see angry faces, sometimes I see faces I can’t describe their expression… yes, there are people who don’t have facial expressions… they exist as if they are numb to feelings… and when I see all these people caught up in time in their own world, I wonder.

I wonder if they know who they are. I wonder if they know that they are not what they believe they are. I wonder if they know they are not the body and the name given to them. I wonder if they and you know that all of us are souls. Do you know this?

When No One Trust Our Truthfulness

When No One Trust Our Truthfulness

Have you ever experienced in your life where you are very truthful in everything you do and no matter what you do, those people whom you are truthful with just don’t trust you? I have. In fact, I have experienced such people many times.

Only they know why they don’t trust us but from my experience, I tend to think it’s either because they don’t trust themselves enough to trust us or they just don’t understand us. Maybe they don’t trust us or anyone easily because of a bad past experience in their life.

Life can be hard living with or among people who don’t trust us. This is even more true if the person who don’t trust us is the one we love dearly. It’s true but what can we do? We don’t blame anyone. We can’t force anyone to trust us. We just let them be.

Think of it this way… will you trust anyone easily? I am sure you wont. It takes time to build trust. Furthermore, the world around us is build up in such a way, we can no longer bring ourself to trust anyone. So it is true, we can’t really blame anyone.

Well, I am reminded of a saying from a great spiritual master now. I goes like this, “Trust no one but pretend that you trust them”. I think the master must have said this because people in this world are so full of themselves and we don’t know when they will turn their back on us.

Yet, there is one prevailing truth and that truth is, we know ourself better than others. As long as we are honest, we don’t have to prove anything to anyone. It’s really between us and God. God is our witness. We just carry on do our duties properly and leave the rest in God’s hand.

I believe, if as we continue to do our works and duties sincerely with love to everyone around us, including those who don’t trust us, eventually they will realize the truthfulness in us. It takes time, but I believe they will trust.

In fact, truth doesn’t need anyone to defend it. Truth has its own power. Truth can defend itself. Truth is God. If you have truthfulness in your heart, it means you have God in your heart. When you have God in your heart, do you need to prove anything to anyone or do you have to fear anyone? I don’t think so.

I have come to accept that it doesn’t matter what other people think of us. It is their right to have opinion as much as we have the right to have opinion about anyone or anything. What’s important is we don’t encroach into other people’s space and we don’t let others to encroach into our space.

How To Change Others

How To Change Others

Don’t ever try to change anyone. It won’t work. You will only waste your time trying. Yet, that is how reality is nowadays. People spend an awful lot of time trying to change others. They try to change their children, change their spouse, change their employees, change their colleagues, change their friends or even try to change their relatives.

Why do people try to change others? People do it because people believe if they can change them, they will become better and will make them happier. The truth is people try to change others to make their own self happy, because if other people listen us, wouldn’t our life becomes easier?

If you have read the story about Mahatma Ghandi, you’d probably agree he was especially tuned in to futility of changing people and yet, history shows that he probably was one of the most influential people in history who’ve brought changes to millions of people.

If people go to Ghandi and ask, “I like the idea of non-violence, but there are others who don’t. How do we change them?”, and he would reply, “you cannot change others but you must be the change you wish to see in them”. That’s one profound truth about changing others.

We Are Responsible For Our Life Experiences

We Are Responsible For Our Life Experiences

I had a conversation on the phone with an old friend a while ago. While talking he touched on the topic of palm leaf readings by the Indian Rishis (sage), a script written on a kind of palm leaf and used to read and tell the past life of any one who wants to get the reading.

In the conversation he were telling me about how important it is for one to find out about their own past life and do whatever they can to solve the past life karma to make this life better and according to him, if we can do that palm leaf reading, we can solve it. He is very convinced we can change our destiny through it.
