Trust in God

There are times when we find ourselves in the situation where the person we had trusted is found to be untrustworthy. Either our eyes have been opened or the individual has changed. Life is being kind to us and teaching us a lesson that needs to be learnt, but at that time we often forget this. Our vision gets clouded and self confidence shaken. To turn out thoughts to God, the One who never fails, to find strength in knowing from experiences that with God we can press on, is good. However we must not become bitter towards the world. Each one has his or her role to play and own actions to account for. When we harbour feelings of bitterness and hatred we ourselves become cold and our hearts become like iron. Rather we should be thankful for the opportunity the individual provided for us to learn and grow.

Don't Worry! Be Happy!

Worries are an illusion. They make you live in the future, giving you the belief that you are very busy and take you away from the present. Worries are an excuse for not doing what you really have to be doing. A reactive person appears very busy and worried. With worry, no problems can be resolved. A proactive person focuses attention on the present, acts with initiative, and the understanding that being calm and free from worry is far more effective.

Determination And Patience Go Hand In Hand

Determination is the strength that will enable you to pass the barrier of useless thoughts in order to create positive thoughts and to be successful in whatever you wish. It comes from within and its partner is patience. Patience teaches you not to push but rather to wait and appreciate the game of life instead, knowing that nothing remains the same, and everything will change at some point

Attain Peace by Removing Your Ego

The great enemy of peace is ego. Ego makes you judge others and think about them in an unkind way. It makes you force others to do what you want. In this way you forget you are a student and that you are here to learn. Instead of learning, if you start telling people what they should do and try to change them, you are forgetting an important lesson in life, You can only change yourself, not others. You can only hope to change others by being an example for others to follow.

Life Bring Obstacles to Strengthen You.

Often, from grain of sand a mountain emerges. If you want to protect your inner peace transform the mountain into a grain of sand. Life will bring obstacles and difficulties. They do not come to stop you. They can strengthen you and help you progress with more experience. Keep advancing. Sometimes you do not find a solution, it is enough to keep moving forward, learning from and leaving obstacles behind.
