Today's sorrow hides in its bosom the joys of tomorrow.
Adversity is the soil in which you sow the seeds
of success. The
rains that came today and ruined your paths would soon make the
earth green and abundant.
In the womb of loss is the seed of gain. The storms and
tempests that devastate life on earth also enable us to start
life afresh. The night that invokes in us fearful thoughts, also
reveals to us the beauty and majesty of star filled heavens.
Life is what we make of it.
Life is as we think about it.
Life is what we want it to be.
Life is a mixture of colors that we choose and put on an
otherwise empty canvas. We see what we want to see, accept those
we believe in and ignore those that do not interest us.
This is the wisdom of the ages, ancient as well as modern.
So think positively. Even amidst difficulties hope for the
best. Keep courage. With faith in your heart and confidence in
yourself, you can surmount all your problems. Know with
certainty that after darkness there can only be light.
Your suffering is but a part of your spiritual evolution upon
earth. It sets in motion a purifying process, which ultimately
leads to your awakening and enlightenment. If you look at the
world with thoughts of love, full of compassion, you have little
chance to live in despair. If you look at yourselves with
understanding and unconditional love you have no reason to be
How often we spend our lives, feeling unhappy and inadequate
about ourselves! How often we crush ourselves, with thoughts of
self-criticism! How often we injure others, with our vehemence
and frustration! How many relations we lose, because we are too
judgmental and critical about others!
