Be of firm faith

Life has its moments. Sometimes up and other times down. In this wave like life, we need to be of firm faith. You cannot afford to falter your faith anytime. The hope of a better morrow is what spurs us on, despite adversity. So keep it up, always, never forgetting that there is somebody out there who is witness to all your trials and tribulations. Keep hustling while you are at it, even when hope seems to simmer. Be sure that times are going to change and we have to keep pace with it. What seems to be a down moment is a lesson to be learned. If we don’t, we are condemned to repeat it. The future will happen when it does, so don’t be anxious about it. Whatever it is that you have dreamed of, is bound to manifest. Just in a matter of time.

In the meanwhile, hold on to your paddles with full strength. Row as much as you can, with full faith. You will soon realize that every cloud has its silver lining. And yours is quite near. You are almost there. Don’t give up in between. Take a break, if you will. But return back with an arduous attitude. Keep up to what you do best. Your time is going to come. Every single one of us is unique. We all have our strengths and fallacies. If there is a word that sums up what we have to do, it is ‘contribute’. Give with all your might. Whatever you can. To as many people as you can. Whenever you can. And you will find that receiving is in giving. Let me repeat that. In giving, we receive.

Tough times make people tough. They are there, so that we may change our outlook to life. So be flexible always. Do not drown in dogmas. Or anything  that can prove detrimental. This life is a gift to cherish forever. Make good use of this gift  that  has been give to you. Leave a legacy behind, before you exit out into other worlds. We are in control of our life. Like an artist who puts pastels onto the painting, to make it look good, we also have to give meaning to this life, the way we want it. Challenges are there. That’s what makes the ride fun. If we could easily get what we wanted, then life wouldn’t be that much fun. So collect all those colors together and paint to your heart’s content.

The best part about this life is that we get many chances. We learn through trial and error. Once we set our mind to a goal, while we are at it, we find the attributes of the goal changing and maybe the outcome is not exactly as we had contemplated. But be sure, that’s the way it is meant to be. Maybe the original dream that you saw was incomplete. Never mind, God fills in the gaps. As always. Whatever may be the stage of life that we are in, we need to remember one thing: Never to lose faith in God. Thank him for what he has already given you and more that he will send towards you. Dream big. Because for him, there is nothing in this universe which he cannot bring to life. Life is his gift. Have faith in him and then start walking. That is all there is to it.

To your dreams …

The key to happiness

There is no such thing as bad or evil. The devil is just an imaginary being. While good and bad contradictions have been raging throughout the ages, the truth is God would not make anything bad. What seems to be an act of bad is because of lack of love. Let me explain. You see love is the greatest force that we have come across. And what seems to be bad or negative people are because they lack a degree of love. The more love they lack, the greater is their conundrum. If everyone where to feel love in its most pure form, this world would be made up of joy everywhere. The fact is some of us do not vibrate on this frequency. Hence for such people, everything seems to be going wrong.

Whereas some people seem to be happy always, as they are closer to the frequency of love. Love is an attitude. This is something we are born with, but gets lost in the real world education. As we form or own opinions which in turn become beliefs we tend to do things or move according to them. While there is nothing wrong with  this, if the beliefs are negative (If I may use this word) the effect can be disastrous. There are beliefs which reinforce love and there are those which arise from things like anger, jealousy etc. Now these emotions are far away from true love and we must not cede to them. Because in this process, we may not experience ample love always.

But the good news is that we are made of love atoms. We can get in touch with them, if we try. A strong belief in a supernatural power guiding all of us is a good start. However, others can also embrace love. The most fundamental question is why do we live? The answer is simple: To experience love, to share it with others and to spread the message of love every single day. This is only possible if we start giving love consciously. The more you give, the lighter you feel. Till a time comes when you become pure love. A joy to behold! We can have anything that we want, if we practice giving love. Because it comes back – always and that too in multiples.

Gratitude is the key to happiness. But I’m talking about a deep feeling of thanks for everything. Count your blessings and be thankful for that. If you don’t, at least try. Thank the person who invented electricity for you are reading this quip because of that. Thank the Sun for giving sunlight everyday without fail, and that without making a noise about that. If you think, there are too many things we have to be grateful about. And the more grateful you feel, the more happy you will be. Some days you feel depressed, that’s because you have drifted  away from the frequency of love. Get back immediately. Start feeling those moments that make  you special – because that  is what you are – a special person.

To your happiness …
