Power without responsibility is destructive, but power with responsibility is the secret to greatness, says Sanjiv Ranjan
Exercise: Let go of the need to condemnWhen you see someone for whom you feel hatred, or dislike, whose actions you feel like criticising or condemning, remind yourself that no one can be exactly the way you want them to ‘be.’
Remind yourself that each one is here to play a part, and what gives strength to a culture is diversity. Remember that when you condemn, a part of you shrivels up and dies . . . for there was a deeper understanding of human nature which was waiting to be born within you, and through criticism of the other, it died.
Now make a list of all those whom you regularly criticise or condemn. Write down their names and what you detest about them, and then in front of each detestable attribute, write down: But for the grace of God, that could have been me. Do this exercise regularly, and your ego will melt gently like frost on a frozen window pane, submitting to the sun’s warm, mellow light.
Liberate your mind from the energy of condemnation. It is toxic. There is no need for it, nor is there any need to justify.
The moment you move out of blame and being critical, your mind begins to move into the Self. The moment it begins to move into the Self, it attains purity. The moment it attains purity, you will unlock your sacred mission and walk the path that leads to a powerful life.
