Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots

Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots

Sri Amit Ray  explains the concept of leadership from inner being. He also describes how to overcome the blind spots in leadership and decision making processes.

Leadership begins with a simple human gesture and that is to inspire others, and to inspire others you must feel integrated, harmonious and whole. When you are disconnected with your Inner Being, you don’t feel solid and whole in yourself. When you are connected with your Inner Being, you feel integrated, harmonious and whole.

Here, by inner dimensions I mean inner strength, inner vision – the expanded consciousness beyond the small ego which considers him or her self separate from the rest.  On the Physical body level we have emotional blockages. When you are connected with your Inner Being, you feel integrated, harmonious and whole. When you operate from your Inner Being you can overcome the mundane emotional blockages that drags you down. Through meditation, mindfulness and positive mindset we can get connection with our Inner Being. Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King are the examples of leadership from Inner Being.

Leadership from Inner Being By Sri Amit Ray

Authentic Leadership and Inner Dimensions:

We can consistently inspire others when we are authentic – authentic to ourselves and authentic to others. Authenticity is the single most important principle of leadership. Authenticity comes from our deeper inner dimensions. It comes from our core values, principles, and life experiences.

To be a good leader you must be authentic to your current state of development as well as to your potential state of development.  In cryptography, authenticity means messages that received by A are actually sent by B – there is no noise, error or loss of information. In leadership, authenticity means what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony. There should not be any  contradiction, confusion or doubt. Today’s best leaders are authentic leaders. They are connected with their inner being, which guides them in their daily actions and enables them to earn the trust of their subordinates, peers, and shareholders. Read More »Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots

Sri Amit Ray explains the seven ways to build inner strength and resilience. 

Inner strength and resilience are the two key components to face and transform every challenges of life. Good inner strength will give you self-confidence. It also gives you determination, tolerance, satisfaction and energy. Life throws challenges but with patience and resilience you can convert every challenge into new opportunity to grow. Having a resilient spirit becomes an asset.

Inner Strength and Resilience

1. Identify your True Purpose of Life

God has given you many gifts  – but in some areas you are very very special. Identify those special areas where you can grow, contribute and get maximum satisfaction of life. If you can’t find your purpose at some point of life, life will throw you challenges – and you need to convert those challenges into opportunities.   When you set your purpose properly, you will activate more positive energies, gain better balance. 

 

“You need to find out, what you love most from the core of your heart, and for success you need to invest your time and energy on that.” — Amit Ray

2. Focus and Hard work

With focus and hard work, anything is possible. Small things matter – your daily exercise, your values,  your food habits and thinking patterns can make difference. Positive people are able to recognize that problems are not obstacles that get in the way but are new opportunities for creativity and problem solving. Every moment is a new moment to rise up and move forward into the victory.  

Time management is vital for success. Make to do list and isolate top three items in the list and give them priority to complete.   If you have too many people and too many friends, you will be obstructed in your focus.  Focus and concentration are essential for inner strength. Don’t allow life to overflow with unnecessary activities. Read More »7 Steps to Build Inner Strength and Resilience for Success and Happiness

36 Tattva Meditations for Spiritual Awakening

36 Tattva Meditations for Spiritual Awakening

Sri Amit Ray tells us the importance of Tattva Meditation for Spiritual Awakening. 

Tattvas are the foundation of yoga philosophy.  Many of my students and spiritual seekers requested me to explain tattvas in a very simplistic term. The purpose of this article is to explain tattvas in a meaningful way so that anyone can understand and practice tattva meditation easily. 

Tattva Meditation for Spiritual Awakening

Why Tattvas are Important?

Understanding tattvas help us to evolve our consciousness to higher levels. It purifies the mind and removes the ignorance. Tattva deals with the pure consciousness, material world and the three forms of energies. These energies are energy of intentions, energy of wisdom and the energy of actions.  Realizing the ever blissful divine Self, which is unchanging, omnipresent and omniscient, is the hidden desire of every human being. Tattvas show the way for  realizing that objective. The practice of tattva yoga accelerates the evolution of human beings.  Tattvas are the key concepts of  yoga philosophy. Knowledge of the 36 tattvas allows you to understand the laws of nature in a deeper way. You can use this yoga to attain greater brain power, health, knowledge, wisdom and happiness.

What is Tattva?

The universe is made of energy and Consciousness. Tattvas  explain the underline connection between our inner world and the outer world.  Tattva is a Sanskrit word meaning  ‘reality’ or ‘truth’. Tattvas are the basic concepts to understand the nature of absolute, the souls and the universe.

Meditation on tattva is a journey to the ultimate reality.  Knowing the tattva is the way of understanding inner psychology, the world and the beyond. The journey of tattva is a journey from  unconsciousness to supreme consciousness.  It is a journey from darkness to light. 

In chemistry, all materials are classified into 118 basic elements.  They are classified according to the number of protons in their atom. Similarly, in spiritual science all matters and consciousness are classified into thirty six elements. These thirty six elements are called tattavs. Tattvas are used to explain inner psychology, the creation and the existence of the Universe. Tattvas are connected with chakras and the tanmatras.

Meditation on Tattva:

Tattva meditation is a journey from gross to subtle. Tattva meditation  gives us the bigger picture and connects us the higher potential of life.  Our special tattva meditation class is a seven step meditation process. The first step is developing the theoretical knowledge about the tattvas. The second step is developing experiential knowledge about the gross tattavs in individual levels. The third step is formalizing and assimilating the collection of valuable knowledge gained from experiences. The subsequent steps deals with much deeper and subtler aspects tattavas. Tattav meditation includes, concentration, awareness, visualization and deep compassion.

Mindful Leadership: A Journey to Self-discovery and Empowerment

Mindful Leadership A Journey of Self-discovery and EmpowermentSelf-discovery and empowerment are two powerful components of mindful leadership. Through empowerment you can achieve your greatest potential. Through self-discovery you become aware of your true potential, values, character, and motives. Mindfulness strengthens these two powerful tools of leadership and management.  

The sacred spirit or life force energy is within us and around us. You can tap into the power of the universe, draw it in and use it to awaken our inner capacity for value based mindful leadership. We are not separated isolated beings, we are part of One Energy, connected to the vast universe.  Mindfulness is  our capacity to be touched by nature and beauty of the moment. Through mindfulness, we learn to see the wonder in small things—from a new leaf to a child’s smile.

Mindful Leadership and Self-Discovery

Self has many layers. Knowing the self is the beginning of mindfulness. What are my thoughts now? What are my feelings now? What is my experience now?  Who am I? What are my dreams, and strengths? Experiencing these powers of the truth with minute to minute honesty with self is the core practice of mindfulness.

Mindfulness Meditation for Corporate LeadershipMindfulness creates a positive mood, integrity, inner peace, inner strength, determination, and a warm heart. Researchers have identified that mindfulness enhances strengths, such as self-compassion, emotional intelligence, learned optimism, the relaxation response, self-esteem, distress tolerance, self-regulation, resilience, and executive functions.

Self-discovery is trying to discover who you are, your true potential, your purpose in life, and your core principles of life. It gives you the deeper sense of yourself and your unique role in the world. Self-discovery is a journey form unconsciousness  to consciousness. As you are mindful about your true values and potentials, you will build up a great confidence and inner strength.

“Self has many layers. Knowing the self is the beginning of mindfulness.” – Amit Ray

Mindful Leadership and Empowerment

Mindfulness based empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights. Good leaders are characterized by their ability to empower themselves and their team members to achieve maximum success. Empowerment is gaining control over your own life. It is a process that fosters power in people for use in their own lives, their communities, and their society.

Mindful Leadership and EmpowermentMindful leaders have a more optimistic view of the ability to get good work from the team members. This belief makes them more likely to implement empowerment. Based on the recent studies of neuroscience, we can say that the brain takes its shape from what the mind rests upon. If you keep resting your mind on less-empowerment like self-criticism, worries, grumbling about others, hurts, and stress, then your brain will be shaped into greater reactivity, vulnerability to anxiety and depressed mood, a narrow focus on threats and losses, and inclinations toward anger, sadness, and guilt.
