Managing life

We all want to get ahead in life and dream of things being easier or of having enough money, time, energy, work, friends, and so on. Although we've had labour-saving options galore for decades, many people still speak of being so tired. Nowadays we are both energy-conscious and energy depleted. What has happened? Is it all in the mind?

Times are changing

Now is the time to pack up what is not necessary in our life. It has been part of our nature to complicate everything. We now have to keep it simple. If we have extra of anything, we have to make sure we use it in a worthwhile way. We have to realise the importance of this present time. We have to now stop the give and take of sorrow and only give and take happiness. This step calls for spiritual power.

Dadi janki

…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."

Lord Stone speaking about Dadi Janki in the UK Parliament (House of Lords), responding to the report by the Commission on Religious Education Religion and Worldviews: the way forward, published in September.
