What’s Your Mantra for Living?

posted by smcswain

“Mantra” is a sanskrit word made up of two other words: “man” meaning “mind” and “tra” meaning “instrument.” Hence, a mantra is an “instrument of the mind.”

Not mental gymnastics or a kind of pattern of positive thinking. More like instead the philosophy by which you determine your life…the guidance principle or the underlying motive that motivates your actions, behavior, priorities, and life.

If you were asked to sum up the overriding philosophy…the guiding light of your ambitions…the prevailing objective or principle both of how you live and the way you life, what would it be?

Could you state it?

Articulate it?

Share it?

I think you could. And, I think you should. You’d be surprised at the power of a Mantra when, not only have your articulated it, but, when it comes from your heart and you regularly repeat it, it becomes an instrument that, like the rudder of a ship, guides your life or like a GPS system, it’ll provide direction, helping you reach your life destiny.

Here’s my Mantra for Living…

    My instrument of the mind, my mantra, my manifesto, my motto is BE LOVE TO OTHERS.
    These four words simplify all that I am, my purpose, and direct the focus of my attention to that end.
