The God Within You

“There is a God part in you.  It is the consciousness – the pure Self. Learn to listen the voice of that Power.” ~ Amit Ray

Positive Thoughts – from Sharon Salzberg Quotes

Mindfulness helps us get better at seeing the difference between what’s happening and the stories we tell ourselves about what’s happening, stories that get in the way of direct experience. Often such stories treat a fleeting state of mind as if it were our entire and permanent self.

Positive Thoughts – from Miranda Linda Weisz Quotes

When many voices are speaking at once, listen to the one most quiet and gentle. That’s the one worth listening to.

Understanding Prayer

Prayer or worship is considered to be an integral part of all religion. Prayer has many different forms. Prayer may be done privately and individually, or it may be done corporately in the presence of fellow believers. Prayer can be incorporated into a daily “thought life”, in which one is in constant communication with a god. Some people pray throughout all that is happening during the day and seek guidance as the day progresses.

Power of Positive Self-Talk

Positive thinking doesn’t mean that you keep your mind busy with religious thinking and ignoring life’s pleasant feelings. Positive thinking just means that you tackle the unhappy situations in a more positive and productive way.

Self-talk and positive thinking are deeply related. Self-talk is the endless flow of unspoken thoughts that run through your head every day. Positive thinking often starts with calmness of mind. The more you are conscious about self-talk, the more will be the power of positive thinking.

Happiness, Jesus and the Kingdom of Love

Kingdom of Love is the kingdom of heaven. When we are in deep love this very earth is the kingdom of heaven. When we are in Love we are happy. Love is not possessing something. It is the freedom of sharing the sweetness of life. It is also sharing the bitterness of Life. When we can share our thoughts, feelings and emotions we are in Love. Jesus said “I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven.” -Matthew 16:19 RSV 

Love and flowers of Jesus

Love and flowers of Jesus

Love is the key to the kingdom of God. Here, the word Kingdom signifies the inner state of peace love and tranquility. It has nothing to do with the ruling of a King. Here, King is the Love itself. The more we are in Love, the more we are nearer to the Kingdom. Love is the King and our consciousness is the Kingdom.

In the New Testament it is said  “Do penance: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:1-2). Penance is a wholly different thing from gospel. Penance has deeper meanings. It is not just doing prayers and the pleasing the God. God will be pleased only when we are in real Love; Love with everyone without discrimination. Here, the word penance means preparing ourselves for the great Love to encompass everything.  The word penance means changing the heart – transforming the heart for greater Love.  We heard  “Rend your heart and not your garments” (Joel 2:13.).  Inner transformation is more important than the external ritual and prayers. Inner transformations comes when we are in Love. The  abundance of light and grace comes when we are in the path of Love and inner transformation. Our hormones and Divine Love are linked together.  The beauty is that Love is the key, when we are in Love we have all hopes. Only Love can transform us. Here are some great quotes on God and Love:

“God is whispering in your heart, in the whole existence, just tune your ears.” — Sri Amit Ray

 “God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.”  ~St. Augustine

“Keep the joy of loving God in your heart and share this joy with all you meet especially your family. Be holy – let us pray.” — Mother Teresa 

“When we turn the mind inwards, God manifests as the inner consciousness.” — Sri Ramana Maharshi

Happiness, Christ, Love Energy and Compassion

Oxytocin is the key hormone for love energy. Love helps people to stay together. Love helps people to stay with God. Oxytocin and vasopressin hormone seemed to be more closely linked to long term bonding. When we are in true Love without much possessiveness, happiness radiates. Mind of Jesus Christ was always full of love, compassion and purity.“When God loves any of us, he will withhold nothing from us that is good for us. He does not hold back his own only begotten Son.”, Rom.8:32

The experience of God’s love is a central part of spiritual Life. Divine Love is essentially the refined form of the Love energy. Studies conformed that, when we are in deep love with God, Oxytocin, Dopamine and Serotonin are the key hormones. Dopamine is also the divine gift of life in Divine Love. Researchers also observed that Oxytocin decreases the risk of heart disease. Divine Love decreases the stress hormone Cortisol.

Love to Christ

Left brain and right brain activities varies according to the relax states of Divine Love. Similarly, different brain waves are observed in different stages of Divine Love.

As you increase the intensity of your love with peace and relaxation, the gamma waves in the brain also increases. The gamma brain waves are known as  “feeling of blessings”.  As the gamma waves increases you have the higher capacity to heal others.

Gamma waves can be increased in many ways. In the book Om Chanting and Meditation, Sri Amit Ray discussed Humming type of Om chanting for Gamma wave generation. Bharamori Om chanting is also easy way to generate gamma waves.

Researchers using MRIs to look at the brain activity during deep Divine Love and  found the interplay of ­hormones and neurotransmitters. Dopamine makes focus on God. It is central to the brain’s reward ­circuitry. If you are in tension during  prayer, brain activity will be exactly opposite to the relax Divine Love with God.

Serotonin is another hormone associated with Divine Love. This is also known as  “happy feeling,” hormone. Serotonin can also be altered by the amount of time spent in natural sunlight.   Increasing levels of  serotonin may be associated with increased affect, for good as well as for worse.  Anxiety and obsessive thinking that characterizes of low serotonin.  An imbalance in serotonin levels may influence mood in a way that leads to depression. Serotonin is also known to regulate aging, learning and memory.

Love and Compassion are key to happiness. The more you can expand the circle of your love the more you can be happy.  Jesus said “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.”  — Matthew 5:43-45.  Here the focus is on  expansion of love; loving, not just your relatives or  friends (that you have to love, right? You must love) but towards every being, in the impossible zones of life. Here is some famous quotes:

“It does not matter how long you are spending on the earth, how much money you have gathered or how much attention you have received. It is the amount of positive vibration you have radiated in life that matters,” ―  Amit Ray

“The success of love is in the loving  – it is not in the result of loving.” – Mother Teresa.

“At the touch of Love everyone becomes a poet.” – Plato

“Where there is love there is life.”  – Mahatma Gandhi

Compassion, Buddha, Love Energy and Happiness

Flowers are the best expression of Love energy.  As per the recent neurobiological studies love energy and happiness are linked together. The most important thing in life is generating the love energy and utilizing them in a proper and perfect channels. Oxytocin is the key hormone for love energy. Love helps people to stay together. Even the great people like Buddha use to attract people just by the help of love. He use to radiate love, compassion and purity. In both cases oxytocin plays the same important role. Oxytocin and vasopressin seemed to be more closely linked to long term bonding. However, it is the nature of the mind that is different from the Buddha’s love compared to the common people’s Love. Guilty sense is the biggest enemy of spiritual life. Buddhas mind is always full of love, compassion and purity. Impurity lies in the mind. There is nothing wrong in this beautiful planet, if you have love in the heart and if you are not in the competition.

In a scientific study on the Dharamsala Monks of the Dalai Lama it is observed that they can raise their body temperature by 15 degrees. They practice compassion to activate the main glands to control the body energy.

You can pick a target of your love and intensify your emotions. As you increase the intensity of your love, the gamma waves in the brain also increases. As the gamma waves increases you have the higher capacity to heal others.

Gamma waves can be increased in many ways. In the book Om Chanting and Meditation, Sri Amit Ray discussed Humming type of Om chanting for Gamma wave generation. Bharamori Om chanting is also easy way to generate gamma waves.

Your target of love can be anything. The point is that, let your entire being be full with Love. That was also the objectives of the Love to God. Love without any purpose is the key. Love and Compassion are key to happiness. The more you can expand the circle of your love the more you can be happy.

Happiness in Married Life : Romance and Beyond

I am going to tell the secrets of happiness that works for me. Now I understand that happiness in married life is a choice. I would like to share it the way it works for me. For me honeymoon started five years after our marriage. Initially, I had problems with my mother-in-law. Her interference often causes problems for me. My wife is affectionate to me. But it took long time for me to understand her. Our true relationships started, when I was away from her for about six months, to do my office jobs in abroad. Then I started direct communication with her over phone. Daily, all most one hour i used to talk to her.

I started sharing with her the joys hopes and dreams. Gradually I know her attitude and values. I do daily exercises with her unknowingly, that helps me deeper understanding and love.

In summary, I can conclude that happiness in married life depends on three important factors. First, the trust on your partner. From beginning you need to keep your trust, if you can’t keep your trust don’t marry. Second, most important thing is keeping the communication line on. Third is understanding the values and the attitudes.
