My Power Quote !

A good book on a rainy day is happiness for me - Ruskin Bond

If you can think that infinite power, infinite knowledge and indomitable energy lie within you, and if you can  bring out that power, you also can become like me.

                        - Swami Vivekananda

When I wake up in the morning,  my first task is to flip through my table-top quote calendar to get a daily dose of inspiration.  This bangs my day productive.

The credit to this  largely goes to Swami Vivekananda who  is my guru and I was terribly influenced by his literature. 

One blessing I enjoyed in my formative years was, my parents never  pressed me to study for exams and giving this liberty helped me to handle my affairs better. 

In fact, it was not the trend in those times to plan the children for dream careers as we do in today. Father was busy in his trade union activities and mother being housewife had limited interference in my activities which didn't mean that I was a rudderless ship.   I used to observe the world around me and  tried to harness my potential. It helped to blossom  my ''Free Will''.   

We generally believe that outside agency is more to guide us than our inner instinct.  This is squarely wrong.  You have an amazing technology within you.  Noted Indian spiritual guru Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev once said that you have an amazing technology which could convert  ''bread'' into ''blood''.

If you observe your body processes, you  find that almost all critical life processes are on auto-pilot mode and your subconscious mind is the presiding deity of all such systems and sub-systems.  But your conscious mind is left with a highly combustible material called 'Free Will'   This 'Free Will'' do wonders if it is rightly harnessed for personal growth. One  should not be too sensuous and   need to take decisions on moment to moment  basis cautiously to enrich in life.

There is a great saying : Wisdom is knowing what to do next; skill is knowing how to do it; and virtue to doing it. 

When you wake up in the morning the day should start with bang.  The best way to do is choose your set of  ''Power Quotes''  so that  the power of those words  starts flowing into your system.  By cultivating it daily, it almost becomes your muscle memory and  strengthens your habit muscle.  My morning's fiery quote since 2004 is as under :

Deep within man dwell those slumbering powers; 
powers that would astonish him, that he never dreamed of possessing;
 forces that would revolutionize his life if aroused and put into action.

                                                                - Orison Swett Marden

No doubt that inspiring personalities radically influence your actions.  But the secret lies  in realizing your self-worth.  If you start taking everything as a learning experience, you would be on the growth path.  Ralph Waldo Emerson says that every man I meet is my superior in some way and in that I learn of him.

Knowledge is not pumping information into your head to show off before others.  It is to be wise enough every moment and contemplative in actions.  This happens when you have confidence on you. The moment one comes out from comparison mania , and don't ride for petty name and fame,   life stills and thereby he or she could savour every moment with a worthy action !
