There are always rich mines of healthy ideas lying broadcast throughout life’s fields – Swami Chinmayananda



What we regularly encourage and consistently cultivate in our mind – this determines our character formation, and ultimately, our destiny. Evidently, an intelligent choice of thought changes the character pattern in us – placing, thus, the entire destiny of our life in our own hands.

We must keep our mind constantly open to all helpful suggestions. There are always rich mines of healthy ideas lying broadcast throughout life’s fields; only we ignore them, refusing to explore them fully.

We must, as the most important thing, discover in ourselves an expectant, helpful, unselfish attitude towards the world of beings and happenings around us. On all occasions let us bring into full play our stronger, more vigorous and most uplifting traits which we have within us today. When consciously brought into continuous play they grow, and such a positive nature, when asserted persistently and lived, adds to our mental resources and reserves.

Confidence in oneself, quietness within, serenity in the mind, poise in the being, and a ready willingness to serve others moulds the healthiest personality.
