Change from within
Be conscious of your thoughts. Improve your life as well as the lives of people around you
You see things as they are and you say, “Why?” But I dream things that never were, and I say “Why not?” George Bernard Shaw. Let us dream and ask how we can make life better for us and those around us.
For centuries, ships were made of wood, because people believed only wood could float. Then people questioned this belief and found that ships made of iron were cheaper to construct, could take greater loads and withstood rough seas. People stopped building ships made of wood and began constructing ships with iron hulls. This would not have been possible if mankind would have limited itself to wood.
Albert Einstein once said “nothing happens unless something is moved”. Everything in this universe is a movement of energy. Higher and faster energy overtakes slower and lower forms of energy. In humans, thoughts are the fundamental seeds of energy. A low thought leads to decay and destruction, whereas high thoughts lead to growth.
Being conscious of our thoughts, we can direct ourselves to live actively and add value to ourselves and the people around us. We need to connect to sources of high-energy thoughts.
It is important to keep the company of people who are focused on constructing rather than destroying. It is important to associate with people you want to emulate. If you want to lead a positive and successful life, you have to start spending time with positive and successful people. Reading inspiring material and watching constructive things will add to the vibrancy of our minds. All of us want to better ourselves in every area of our lives. So it is up to us to select what we want to become.
Once a grandfather said to his grandson, “I have two voices inside me. The first voice is filled with anger, hatred, bitterness, and mostly revenge. The second voice inside me is filled with love, kindness, compassion, and mostly forgiveness.” “Which voice will win?” asked the grandson. The grandfather replied, “Whichever one I feed.”
“The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives,” said William James, Harvard psychologist.
