The end result of stable wisdom is the attainment of the brahmi-state, the state As far as Gandhi is concerned, there is no hint here that the sthitha-prajna is the.

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ~Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi spent his life working to fight discrimination and poverty against Indians, both at his home in India and for 20 years in South Africa. He was a leader in the Indian independence movement from Britain and a pioneer in non-violent protests. He chose nonviolence as a method of resistance because he never believed violence was the answer to what’s best. Gandhi had these 10 Words of Wisdom:

1. Be the Change

“Be the change you wish to see in the world,” said Gandhi. He communicates with great simplicity the potential we all have to make change. If we want to see more kindness, then our acts of kindness will inspire others to do the same. If we want to see that no one goes hungry, then we can find a way to provide food to those in need. With any change we’d like to see, no matter how small or big, we can take the first step – create a website, start a group, or write to our Congressman. It may seem small at first but taking a stand for something and enrolling others in the cause, can lead to a movement and make real change in the world.

2. What You Think You Become

“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes,” Gandhi said. Learning to recognize and stop thoughts that don’t serve us can be life-changing. Our often habitual, self-sabotaging thoughts that come from certain beliefs that we have about ourselves create fear and resistance. Mastering our thoughts helps guide us to where we want to go. If I thought that I was not good enough for a career that I am passionate about, then that career might be a struggle or never come to be. Learning to control the nature of our negative thoughts and then turning them around to more positive ones will help attract what we want.

3. Where There is Love There is Life

When life becomes chaotic, stressful and hard in general, focusing less on the fear of the situation and more on the love around us helps ease the pain. Love is there for us in many forms, a romantic relationship, a parent and child, a friendship, a kind gesture from a stranger, or an unexpected smile. Love makes us feel alive and is the most enduring and constant in all that changes in life. We are all united through love’s power, and its energy compels us to reach out to one another, transcending hatred, fear and suffering with peace, joy and harmony.

4. Learn As If You’ll Live Forever

When Dr. Suess said, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go,” he understood, as Gandhi did, that to learn is to grow. Each day brings an opportunity to expand ourselves by reading, taking classes, asking questions, and listening to others. We can view learning as a great adventure and soak up all the knowledge and wisdom that surrounds us. The gift to learn is always there and to be taught and to teach enriches life.

5. Your Health is Your Real Wealth

We have all experienced sickness and some of us even a chronic disease or devastating illness. All we can think about is getting better. To wake up in the morning and feel good, with no pain, rested and ready for the day, is a great day. Once we do not feel ourselves or can’t get around, is when we long to be healthy again, and no matter how wealthy we are, we would give away all our riches, to be well again.

Feeling good and energetic means that we can go to work, pursue our goals, be happy and have relationships. No amount of money can replace our true wealth, our health.

6. Have a Sense of Humor

A sense of humor is a great thing to have and needed in so many situations where we may be “sweating the small stuff”. When we are around people who make us laugh, it’s so refreshing. Life can become all about the chores and responsibilities and not about having fun and being happy. Laughter is a relief for so many situations and makes us feel alive. When was the last time you had a really good laugh? Perhaps a good sitcom, comedy club, funny movie with friends is in order for a change in perspective.

7. Your Life is Your Message

What beautiful words, “your life is your message!” How we choose to live life is a model for the young and old. But we don’t always see it this way, do we? But maybe it’s good to ask yourself how people see you? Do they respect you? Admire you? Want to be around you? Seek your advice? How people respond to you can be so telling in how you are being in the world. It is interesting to stop and think about how we are being in the world instead of always thinking about what we are doing in the world. This knowledge can be quite revealing.

8. Action Expresses Priorities

Gandhi’s words above go right along with Johann von Goethe’s words, “Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.” What we do with our days tells us what we are committed to, good or bad. For example, if someone has a dream of writing a book and it’s something that is of great importance to them, then writing everyday would be the appropriate action. But so many times, we get caught up in other things, sidetracked on the way to fulfilling our deepest desires. So the book becomes at the mercy of taking care of everything else in life and 20 years may go by and something so important was lost. Thinking about what we are making a priority in life is a great excercise.

9. Our Greatness is Being Able to Remake Ourselves

At any time, we can reinvent ourselves. If one day we choose to give-up the career we have had for over 25 years for something entirely new, we have that power. We may have to work to get there, either prepare ourselves financially or pursue additional schooling, but we can turn our lives in another direction, a better direction for ourselves. This is what makes us great! Anything is possible in our life, and we are limitless to what we can do.

10. Find Yourself in the Service of Others

Gandhi’s life was surely a life of service. He chose to take a stand against discrimination and poverty for his people, and he succeeded. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “…Anyone can be great because anyone can serve.” We have the ability to help others and what a gratifying feeling it is to know what a difference we are making in someone’s life. The virtue of service takes us out of ourselves which can be the perfect healing for what ails us. Being of service can help others and change lives, even our own.

Wednesday Wisdom: Gandhi On The Harmony Of Happiness

wednesday wisdom ghandi

Nationwide, 17% of high school students failed to graduate on time in the 2014-15 school year. What’s even worse is that each year, an estimated 750,000 students drop out of school. Many experts say the critical time to address the dropout problem is in the earliest years of education, even before a child enters kindergarten. Children who enter school with learning levels that are not up to grade standards are more likely to drop out of school, which reduces their earnings potential and chance for success later at life. Education can transform a child’s life. Let’s make sure children do not miss the opportunity to learn.

Mahatma Gandhi Quotes About Living Your Best Life

Our latest collection of inspirational MahatmaGandhi quotes on Everyday Power Blog!

Gandhi is a man that needs no introduction. A man that changed a nation and changed the world with his compassion, vision, tolerance, and patience. Mahatma Gandhi is an undying reminder of how one person can inspire a community, a nation, and the world.

Gandhi stood for peace, equality and non-violent protest and was even an inspiration for Martin Luther King, Jr. Gandhi is proof that one man can make massive changes, inspire a world and preserve their character throughout the journey.

Born on 2nd October 1869, in North West India, Gandhi was an activist, lawyer, politician, and writer. His upbringing was infused with the Jain pacifist teachings of mutual tolerance, non-injury to living beings and vegetarianism. He was assassinated on 30 January 1948, when he was 78 years old.

First, let’s look at some life lessons from Gandhi, the quotes come after.

Mahatma Gandhi Life Lessons

1.) Lead A Simple Life.

Gandhi felt that we shouldn’t be tempted by glamorous lifestyles and that the most meaningful lives are simple and purposeful. Gandhi believed that when life is minimal, we can effectively focus on self-improvement.

2.) Be Selfless

Gandhi believed that we should focus more on positive impact and kindness, instead of personal achievement and personal gain. He believed everyone can do small things to improve the life of their neighbors.

3.) Always Be Yourself

Gandhi led by example and refused to dress any other way than what he thought was right for him and his mission. He encouraged other people to do the same thing. Be who you are at all costs.

4.) Lead By Example

Before we can change the world, we must change ourselves. Gandhi believed that before we even consider changing the world, we commit ourselves to personal improvement. Only then, we will know, understand and appreciate what it takes to make meaningful change.

5.) The Mind Will Always Be Stronger Than Your Body

Gandhi believed that the person with the strongest mind wins. The person who can control their emotions, their fear, their desire for revenge and violence, will win every single time. Gandhi challenged ALL people to develop their courage and compassion during times of battle.

Mahatma Gandhi Quotes about love and life

35.) “I must say that, beyond occasionally exposing me to laughter, my constitutional shyness has been no dis-advantage whatever. In fact,I can see that on the contrary, it has been all to my advantage. My hesitancy in speech, which was once an annoyance, is now a pleasure. Its greatest benefit has been that it has taught me the economy of words.

I have naturally formed the habit of restraining my thoughts. And I can now give myself the certificate that a thoughtless word hardly ever escapes my tongue or pen. I do not recollect ever having had to regret anything in my speech or writing. I have thus been spared many a mishap and waste of time. Experience has taught me that silence is part of the spiritual discipline of a votary of truth. Proneness to exaggerate, to suppress or modify the truth, wittingly or unwittingly, is a natural weakness of man, and silence is necessary in order to surmount it.

A man of few words will rarely be thoughtless in his speech; he will measure every word. We find so many people impatient to talk. There is no chairman of a meeting who is not pestered with notes for permission to speak. And whenever the permission is given the speaker generally exceeds the time-limit, asks for more time, and keeps on talking without permission. All this talking can hardly be said to be of any benefit to the world. It is so much waste of time. My shyness has been in reality my shield and buckler. It has allowed me to grow. It has helped me in my discernment of truth.” – MahatmaGandhi

36.) Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. – Mahatma Gandhi

37.) A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave. – Mahatma Gandhi

38.) The good man is the friend of all living things. – Mahatma Gandhi

39.) “Relationships are based on four principles: respect, understanding, acceptance and appreciation.” – Mahatma Gandhi

40.) “There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.” – Mahatma Gandhi

41.) “What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror refection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Other inspirational Mahatma Gandhi quotes

42.) “Our greatest ability as humans is not to change the world; but to change ourselves.” – Mahatma Gandhi

43.) “Speak only if it improves upon the silence.” – Mahatma Gandhi

44.) “The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problem.” – Mahatma Gandhi

45.) Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men. – Mahatma Gandhi

46.) “It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” – Mahatma Gandhi

47.) “Those who know how to think need no teachers.” – Mahatma Gandhi

48.) To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer. – Mahatma Gandhi

49.) “Strength does not come from physical capacity, it comes from indomitable will.” – Mahatma Gandhi

50.) “If we want to reach real peace in this world, we should start educating children.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Words of Wisdom from Gandhi

wednesday wisdom ghandi

In western society a belief exists that ‘achievement’ and ‘stress’ go hand in hand. There’s almost an unwritten rule that if you look too calm and peaceful, then you’re clearly not working hard enough.

What I love about Mahatma Gandhi is that he proved it’s possible to remain gentle in spirit, yet command an enormous amount of strength and respect at the same time.

In a world where authority is revered over genuine leadership, I believe we can learn a lot from the man who fought for a nation with his mind alone.

Gandhi’s philosophy was not theoretical but one of pragmatism, that is, practicing his principles in real time. Asked to give a message to the people, he would respond, “My life is my message.”

I hope you take something from one of the 12 Gandhi quotes below, maybe even a sense of liberation from the idea that ‘it is possible to be a gentle and relaxed Superachiever.’
