Inspiration for conscious living

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.”

– Swami Nithyananda
