Be Happy & Change Negative Things into Positive

True happiness doesn't come from external things or people but from within. As long as we depend for our happiness on external sources, there is every chance that we are disappointed. True happiness is that which comes from within. It is to enjoy and cherish each moment. When we do this happiness spreads to others too. With this thought today, smile at everyone and everything that comes your way. When you believe I am happy you will be able to take even the negative things in the most positive.

Keep Your Mind Free to Get Solutions

Situations do bring a lot of challenges for us, but where there is fear or worry while facing them, there cannot be peace. As long as we continue looking at the problem instead of searching for solutions we cannot remain in peace. Let us think of something that we consider as a problem, something about which we are thinking a lot. Now let us see if we can find a solution for it. If we feel we cannot, it is better to leave thinking about it rather than to worry about it. When we keep the mind free in this way, we will get the solutions automatically.

Be Generous for Others Benefits

To be generous hearted is to bestow others with one's own specialities and virtues. The one who is generous becomes cooperative and enables others to become virtuous through his own virtues and fills others with his specialities. To use specialities in this way, is to ensure that they increase. Let us think of something that is very special in us. Today let us take the thought of using this speciality of ours for someone's benefit. Not only will others benefit with this, we will find ourselves improving too.

With Own Specialities & Virtues Move Towards Success

To be generous with one's own specialities and virtues is to ensure success. Deep within, each and everyone have treasures of virtues and specialities that could be used. The more we are generous with these treasures and use them for others' benefit, we find that they are available for us too. This ensures success in our life. In order to achieve constant success, we need to be in constant touch with our virtues and specialities and virtues. Each day let us think of one speciality or good quality that we have that can be put to use. The more we use our speciality, the more it will get strengthened and will be available for us even in the worst situation. Thus we can move towards success.

Action of Enlightenment

Rest does not come with sleeping, it comes with waking. This is both an insight and an action of enlightenment. When we are enlightened we relise that real rest is possible only when we become free of illusion and we no longer struggle against life. Illusion is the idea that people should be, and do, what we want them to. The truth is, all is as it should be, despite appearances, or our perceptions of others to the contrary. This means you can be easy on yourself, easy with others and easy with the world around you. Easiness is a virtue, an attractive one at that. It is much more influential than force. So quit forcing, end the struggling and . . . relax!
