We should ask ourselves, do we react to situations in a positive or negative manner? The way we react is very much dependent upon our mental attitude and this in turn is directed by our thoughts. Linking our thoughts to the problems that surround us brings unlimited tension and worry. By linking them to the subtle and powerful vibrations of the unlimited source of peace, tranquility and knowledge that is, God the Supreme, we automatically have a constant source of good uplifting vibrations which can settle our troubled minds. He is the Father of all souls, the one who is there to give help at any time. In a time where our thoughts wander with little or no direction, where we find it difficult to talk or relate to people, it is worth remembering that God, who understands us, is only a thought away.

Accepting responsibility without feeling burdened by it may seem unrealistic. Yet it is possible so long as we stay close to our inner self and strength. If we are willing to trust them, spiritual principles and values work like an unseen hand, guiding everything in a beneficial direction. When we remain aware of this force at work, we can accept responsibility and strive to fulfill it without worrying about results.

The most important place to keep clean and tidy are our minds and hearts. If we allow thoughts to flourish that we normally wouldn’t want to see the light of day, we can never have any real self-respect. By starting each day in quiet reflection and pouring positive, loving thoughts into our mind, we gradually clean out cynicism and unkindness. Our mind should be so beautiful and welcoming that God Himself would want to come and see it.

When there is ignorance of the law of cause and effect, there is laughter instead of mercy and love, ridicule instead of sympathy and compassion. When there is ignorance of the power of thoughts, there are ill wishes for others. To have pure wishes for all is divine, and to have hope for one that seems to be a hopeless case is a good gift of charity. Sometimes thoughts and feelings are expressed in laughter. But laughter, like thoughts can have positive or negative influences and effects. To laugh at the misfortune of others is cruel but the one most affected by the laughter is the one that is closest to it, i.e one who is laughing.
