An insight to life
A toast to new beginnings…new life…new dreams…new aspirations…new love and to a new and better you. On this New Year’s Eve let us take the resolution to bring about a positive change in us by driving out all the negativity for the rest of our lives. The mantra to change your lives for better lies in very simple principles which came as a breath of fresh air to me after reading a set of magnificent books, “The Secret” and “The Power” by Rhonda Byrne. These books lead you through a journey where you get a chance to introspect yourself, your beliefs and it helps you delve deeper on the subject of life. Let me summarize it for you and trust me these principles if followed can do wonders and completely transform your lives for better.
Like attracts like. According to this law, you are a magnet and whatever you feel is exactly what you attract in your life. What you give to the world is precisely what you get in return. If you feel happy and positive, you attract all the good things in your life whereas feeling sad and remorseful just brings in negativity and unwanted gloominess in your life. So be positive and give out as much love as possible because by doing so, love is all you will receive in return. Negative thoughts will just open gates for more negativity and bad feelings.
“Give, and it will be given to you… for by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”
Love is a supreme force and by far the most powerful force in the universe. It’s a well-known saying that when you want something, the whole universe conspires to bring it to you. This is absolutely true because when you want something, you give out love for that particular thing and the universe with the shift of events and circumstances in your life, brings it to you. Think about what you love, about all the good things in life, how you want your life to be and you will be attracting all that in your life with the power of love. On the other hand, by thinking about the things you detest or what you don’t want, you inadvertently attract all those things which you hate in your life because that’s what you keep thinking about. Your thoughts act as messengers for the universe to turn them into reality. So guys think positive and fill yourself with love. Love your life and yourself.
“One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life. That word is love.”
Gratitude is a great multiplier. Feel grateful for everything you have, for all the small and big things that you are blessed with. The more you feel gratitude, the more love you give; and the more love you give, the more you receive. It is as simple as that and it flows in a loop.
“If the only prayer you say in your entire life is- ‘thank you’- that is enough.”
Life presents you with all sorts of people and variety of things, which you come across in your day to day being, in order for you to choose as to what you like. To put it in a simple way, life presents you with a catalogue of variety things which you see every day and people who cross ways with you each day. It is up to you to select what you want in your life by selecting the things which you like out of all the things you come across. Now the question arises as to how does one select??? The answer to this is again love as it all sums down to LOVE. Expressing your love for the thing you like by appreciating it and by expressing your desire to have it sends a strong message to the universe to bring it to you. But there is a rider folks! You’ve got to ignore everything which you dislike without passing a remark or being judgmental because the moment you give attention to what you hate by passing a remark, you actually think about that thing and attract the same into your life.
“Life isn’t happening to you; life is responding to you”
Throw out of your vocabulary words like awful, terrible, disgusting, horrible and disdainful. Use more words like beautiful, fantastic, amazing, great, wonderful, brilliant and fabulous. Give love to others in the form of appreciation, encouragement, support and gratitude and it all comes back to you multiplied in every area of your life. On the other hand, if you criticize, find faults in others, blame, complain and nag, you draw the very same in your own life. It’s up to you to decide what you want. Every day is an opportunity for a new life. You and you alone have the power to shape up your life. It’s completely your call.
“Be careful of your moods and feelings, for there is an unbroken connection between your feelings and your visible world.”
Law of attraction doesn’t see good or bad. It doesn’t take into account if you are a good human being or a bad human being or whether your intentions are good or bad. It just works like gravity, doing its job all the time whether you realize it or not, accept it or not and applies uniformly to everybody, no exceptions made what so ever. So now that you know that you can control your life by controlling your feelings, make the most of it. You can do wonders to yourself and have the life of your dreams by harnessing the power of love. You alone are in charge of your life and how you feel and nobody else gets to decide that for you. It’s high time you take charge.
“When one has once fully entered the realm of love, the world- no matter how imperfect- becomes rich and beautiful- it consists solely of opportunitiesfor love.”
Søren Aabye Kierkegaard
Spread love all along even to those who are not that grateful because loving them will only bring more love in your life. Ignore when people throw allegations, tantrums, disliking and gossip at you. Rise above these feelings and love, for it is love that can conquer hatred.
“Whenever anyone has offended me, I try to raise my soul so high that the offense cannot reach it.”
Love has the power to change the world. Let there be so much love, happiness, positivity and light that it defies all darkness and all the evils. May this New Year showers upon you all the love, happiness, health, success and prosperity! May you shine brighter with each passing day! Cheers to a new year, a new life and to a new you!!
