Have Positive Outlook and Remain in Peace

To have a positive outlook is to remain in peace. The more one hears and talks about positive things, the more one is able to be free from negative influences. The environment today doesn't give much of a chance for hearing to positivity because of the continuous flow of news about conflict and violence. But changing the theme of conversation and talking about what life gives is to change the responses to the world in a more positive way. When we have a positive outlook, it creates in us hope and enthusiasm for the future. We also have a more positive view of the present reality. We remain in peace, whatever the challenges or negative situations we may have to face. We are able to be in touch with the inner peace and maintain this state of mind under all circumstances.

The Biggest Gift Is the Gift of Virtues

The biggest gift is the gift of virtues. Through out the day, each individual is involved in a series of activities. A simple thought to give the gift of virtues makes even ordinary actions special. Each act becomes special and the fragrance of this speciality spreads around and touches the lives of others too. Such an individual is able to contribute to every task with his own speciality and bring success in the task too. When we are able to express and give the gift of our virtues, we are able to attain satisfaction with whatever we get to do. This satisfaction brings in us the inner urge to contribute some more. We achieve success outwardly too since we have actually been able to experience inner success. Our relations with others are also harmonious and whatever task we do along with the others brings a productive result.

The Breath of a True Life is Enthusiasm

The breath of a true life is enthusiasm. To live life, to live each moment with enthusiasm is to really live life. The quality of life, the quality of the work done, the quality of relationships, everything is enriched through enthusiasm. Where there is enthusiasm there is maximum recognition and usage of everything available. Enthusiasm spreads to others too, gives them the courage to do their best and enrich their lives. When we are enthusiastic, we are able to enjoy everything that comes our way. The biggest obstacle seems like a game for us, and we pass it by easily, without experiencing any difficulty. Confidence builds up in us and gives us the courage to be the best in all we do. We slowly increase our potential and steadily move on towards success.

Be Wise and Enjoy the Beauty of Life

To be wise is to enjoy the beauty of life. Wisdom gives the understanding that life does not function haphazardly. It teaches that everything that happens in this theatre of life has deep meaning and significance. Wisdom also brings the understanding that what is reaped today is a result of what was sown yesterday. So whatever actions are done now are filled with positivity and beauty - for, there is always the desire to reap better fruits. When we have the true understanding we find ourselves satisfied and content with everything that is happening in our lives. Yet there is the desire and the urge to go on being creative and using our resources for the benefit of all. We go on planting beautiful seeds of positivity and power. And continue to enjoy the fruits of the seeds we plant. We never stop with obstacles but move forward with confidence.

Take Total Control Over All Internal Powers

To be a master means not to be cheated by one's own weaknesses. When there is any weakness working within me it means that the internal power is not working at that time. To be a master means there is total control over all the internal powers. Whether it is the power of concentration, or the power to decide or the power to be stable, whatever power is required is used according to the right time. So no weakness is expressed but only inner strength is revealed. When I am able to use all my powers at the right time, I experience mastery – over situations and over others. But most of all I find that I am a master of myself and my own feelings and emotions. I am always in control of my emotions, however challenging the situations outside may be. So I find that I am never cheated by my weaknesses.
