Gurudev, why does it become increasingly difficult to handle the family? I can handle and influence everyone but the ones I love. What is lacking?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
You have to do it indirectly. You have tell someone who is close to your family and influence the family through them.

Perhaps they know you too well!

If you are so centered, and if you live the knowledge a hundred percent, then you will see that you don’t have to try to influence them, they will get influenced by themselves.

You being well-founded in knowledge is indicated when the people closest to you have the highest respect for you, because they know you. They see how you handle every situation, and how you keep your calm in every situation.

So if your close ones appreciate you, that means you have really blossomed. That means you have only a little bit more to go.

You can influence others but people around you if you are well established in knowledge. It happens.

Gurudev, what do I do when I have too many negative thoughts?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
There are several reasons to it.
When your bowel movements are not good, if you are constipated, there you get too many negative thoughts. So purification of the body is a must.
When your digestion is good, then mind is clear too.
Second, you should do Pranayams. With Pranayama negative thoughts go away too. Third is, when you keep sitting all day doing nothing and there is not enough blood circulation is in the body, then also you get negative thoughts. To remove negative thoughts, do some exercises, or go for swimming, or for a long walk.
Exercise has a very good effect on the body and the mind. It improves blood circulation and negative thoughts go away from mind.
When the life force energy is low, do Pranayams and meditation. Satsang, good company, light food, all these affect our thoughts.
After doing all these, if negative thoughts still come, then just be a witness to these thoughts.
