At the end of winning a rat race, we are still a rat.

Sri Bhagavan says that our outer world is a reflection of our inner world.

Every moment of our life is a choice of breakthru approaches over breakdown perspectives. It is our direction of thought which solely matters.Seeing the cup as half empty or half full makes all the difference.

The tendency of the mind is to focus on the negative in most cases. We have to re-orient ourselves away from this tendency .The technique is to merely watch the tendency for negative orientation which is more often than not, merely hallucinatory.Most of our suffering emerges in imaginary realms of what could happen - erroneous perceptions , not based on fact.

And Bhagavan reminds us, "Suffering is never in the fact, it emerges only in perception."

People often say that this is removed from everyday reality. I wonder where else it should find application if not in everyday life. Can we really live without it in our daily lives? Guess people will continue doing so until they are woken up by the universe. I hope it is not too late for some....
