God has given the ability to think and understand only to human beings. Hence, we can work on many things at the same time. Only human beings have the ability to make new inventions. In doing so, we are likely to make mistakes; but rather than brooding over them, we can learn from them and resolve not to repeat them. If we continue to repeat the same mistakes, it indicates that we are living and working unconsciously. The one who is conscious learns from his mistakes and brings about a big transformation in his life. Life is like a movie. Every movie has an interval. When one gets opportunities for contemplation in the intervals of life (such as between two years, between two months, between two days or even in a day even between two events), one can reflect over how well he has played his part. What has he gained, and what has he lost? In which areas should he make improvements, and how? One needs to contemplate on how he is doing in the five aspects of life â physical, mental, social, financial and spiritual. He should take care to be healthy in all these aspects. He should plan and work on the areas which are as yet underdeveloped. This he can easily do with a âone step at a timeâ approach. Small steps or transformations are in fact not small at all; they are important stepping stones in the process of complete transformation. This is possible with discipline and consistency. The mind resists discipline; hence one must train his mind to take one step at a time, but consistently. He should establish a system of reminders along the path of development. The frequency of reminders will change from individual to individual. The one who concentrates and works according to a plan receives big benefits in life, and remains free from all sorrows. About Author Sirshree's Introduction Sirshreeâs spiritual quest, which began during his childhood, led him on a journey through various schools of thought and meditation practices. The overpowering desire to attain the truth made him relinquish his teaching job. After a long period of contemplation, his spiritual quest ended with the attainment of the ultimate truth. Sirshree says, âAll paths that lead to the truth begin differently, but end in the same wayâwith understanding. Understanding is the whole thing. Listening to this understanding is enough to attain the truth.â To disseminate this understanding, Sirshree devised Tejgyanâa unique system for wisdomâthat helps one to progress from self-help to self-realization. He has delivered more than a thousand discourses and written over fifty books. His books have been translated in more than ten languages and published by leading publishers such as Penguin Books, Hay House Publishers, Jaico Books, etc. Sirshreeâs retreats have transformed the lives of millions and his teachings have inspired various social initiatives for raising global consciousness.
