Inspiration for conscious living

Share |
“Being a natural inspiration for conscious living for those around you is living enlightenment.” Have you ever noticed how the “company we keep” influences the way we perceive or handle life situations? Whether it be the negative neigh-sayer or the positive enthusiast, we have all been profoundly impacted by others in our lives. Fortunately, there are an exceptional few who have the uncanny ability to do more than just offer reinforcement for a sour attitude or a pat on the back for a job well done. They are the courageous souls who shine as leaders, inspiring others through their presence, words, and actions. Inspiration often comes from the desire to emulate certain qualities observed in others. People who exude integrity, confidence, and courage actually motivate those around them to follow their lead. There is a desperate need in the world for more radiant beings such as these. Their very life is a source of encouragement for others to seek, discover, and express their own inner light. According to Swamiji, the peace radiated by a single person who is fully satisfied and blissful within, is enough to inspire thousands towards living a more enlightened, conscious, and fulfilled life. Where to begin? The answer is simple, with individual transformation. We would do well to remember that society can never be transformed. Only individuals can be transformed! As we evolve, we move from being a soul who caught the flame of inspiration, to one who can ignite the flame in others. That is living enlightenment. “When you live enlightenment you don’t have to do anything else. Your very walking, your very scent, your very presence will start raising human consciousness just as a spontaneous expression.”-Paramahamsa Nithyananda
