Resilience in Values

How have you developed values resilience so when you have faced a challenge to your values you have still lived them in your behaviour and speech?

It is important that we engage with our values at every moment of our lives. By doing so, we integrate our inner spiritual life with outer actions. This enables our core human values to bring about a lasting transformation in society.

The way to live our values is to integrate our inner thoughts, awareness, attitude and feelings with our outer expression. By empowering our values from the inside, we can live them, even in the most challenging situations. Empowering values from the outside, maybe by praise or recognition, makes them transitory and easily compromised by external influences or inner fears. Empowering values from the inside makes them lasting and consistent.

By taking time to reflect or meditate, I can begin to understand that I have all that I need inside my own being. Internally we all have the treasures of peace, love and wisdom. Reflecting deeply allows me to touch a deeper part of myself, which gives me the inner strength and resilience needed to live by my values, no matter what. Living our values realises our true humanity.

An arrow of knowledge! Its important to connect with the authentic self and have deep experience of the qualities.

The more you identify yourself with external objects, achievements etc you developing ego and your confidence can crumble when situation become unfavorable.

I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

Dear Kinjal, Thank you for your interest in this article. There is no book as such on this specific topic that you can download, but many of the books in our online bookshop (http://brahmakumaris.org/us/oregon/whereweare/bookshop) deal with the cultivation and integration of values in our daily lives.

Yes its true. values come from inner side not outer influence

Real enjoy comes when you start living it.
Whatever you do if its not comfortable for you then its not your values. This is how one can measure.

This is cent percent true. The reason being we get amazed by others. But we never appreciate ourselves from inside. We decorate ourselves externally do we decorate inside? This is an excellent article and I have just started reading good articles of BK. WE HAVE TONS OF WISDOM AND PEACE INSIDE.
