Secrets of self-progress

Dear friends,

Om shanti. There are two secrets to self-progress. One is to understand the soul and the other is to understand God. When I understand that I am a soul and that each one is a soul, then I don’t need to understand what you are saying with words. Then it is a matter of looking at you with spiritual vision and seeing you, the soul. I may not understand your language, but I will understand the soul.

The other secret is to understand God as our Father, our Baba, who has only love for us. When I remember Him, when I hold Him in my awareness, then I naturally put a full stop to the flood of wasteful and negative thoughts. There is power in these two secrets. I am a soul and I am a child of that Father. Remembering this brings peace and power to the soul.

With love,

BK Janki

Words for the World - Inner Strength

Dadi Janki explains how the practice of remaining courageous and fearless inside brings strength in difficult situations.

…Finally, I mention Dadi Janki, the spiritual leader of the Brahma Kumaris, based on Mount Abu in Rajasthan, who, 20 years ago, when I was in my 50s and she was in her 80s—she is now 103—began showing me, through her love and compassion, that I, like everyone else, had spirit within me. When we act from that connection, it is good for each of us and for all of us. The vision that Dadi shares has inspired values-based educational programmes around the world in schools, with young leaders, and in the Brahma Kumaris institution."
