Making a case for revival of universal human values and morality, Anil Bhatnagar argues that they are a reflection of the order prevailing in Nature and the universe
The ultimate happiness and prosperity can come from our being attuned to the universal principles. Our behavior and values that are not in harmony with the universal laws take us away from bliss, beauty, abundance-the primary qualities of the Latent Oneness.
You can reconnect yourself with the Latent Oneness by living in the present moment, for only in the 'now' can we take correct action, for the past is gone and the future has not arrived as yet.
Pause before responding to any situation, so that we respond consciously from our viveka and not from our negative pattern of habits.
Learn to be detached. Get rid of your attachment to money, to winning arguments, to your physical form, your assets, your people, and your past and to the notion that your ideas, actions, attitudes, values alone are right.
Develop a general reluctance to judging people and situations. Develop reluctance to resist or fight against anything.
Surrendering to life instead of trying to control it brings harmony within and without. Redefine your goals in terms of giving.
Look within. Going within more often to align yourself with your being through consciously watching your thoughts and actions.
Discover the values within by awareness of established timeless principles. Values cannot be cultivated or imposed for they are there within us; we only have to discover them and bring them forth. Values, in fact, stem from clear perception. A child who never used to wash his hands unless reminded by his parents, gave up this undesirable habit, once shown his unwashed hands swarming with bacteria under a microscope. Similarly, anyone who comes to understand the functioning of the invisible mechanism that operates the universe cannot think of breaking the laws of Nature.
Discover the purpose of your life. Each one of us is born for a unique purpose and hence is blessed with a unique set of traits and abilities. Once purpose and values are identified, a harmonious balance comes in life. We all have had instances of narrow escapes. God saves our life many timesfor a purpose. And we need to discover that purpose and fulfill it.
Develop awareness of your values. Knowing our values is, in fact, knowing ourselves. When we uphold our values, we shall feel fulfilled.
Reexamine your definition of success. Our personal values are greatly influenced by how we perceive success. Once we perceive correctly what success is, the correct values often fall in place on their own.
