So much has been told about the importance of thoughts. So many trainers, authors, Gurus make fame, name on this subject; such is the power and demand for this subject. Their writings, lectures, talks do have effect on us. Level and life of those inspirational messages depends on your mind’s receptive power and your state of mind. I emphasize on the receptive power of mind because unless and until the doors of the mind are not open nothing goes and stays in it. If our mind is shut, we don’t learn anything even if we sit in the lap of world’s great inspirational persons like Oprah Winfrey or Sri Sri Ravi Shankar :)
Each one’s life is different and one learns one’s own lessons from one’s own life. We can never compare two people’s life and try to preach or teach them about their problems. We can only share best practices and lessons learnt.
It’s our practical experience that in our down times ultimately we seek the help from within. The way we deal with the situations in life, the way we react to things depends completely on us. It is well said in Bhagavad Gita that One should uplift oneself by one’s own efforts and should not degrade oneself. One’s own self is one’s friend and one’s own self is one’s enemy. I completely agree with this, though my agreement does not make any difference to the beauty of this stanza in Gita , I wish to say that Nobody but You and your thoughts can make your life hell or heaven. The thoughts you nurture in your mind make the journey of your life easier of tougher :)
Thoughts are so powerful that they really can make your day a brighter day or a bad day. If we plant a negative thought in the mind, it grows and grows into a series of negative thoughts like a chain reaction and makes your complete environment gloomy and negative. Similarly, if we make an effort to pluck that negative thought and plant a positive thought, these positive thoughts develop and your environment becomes positive. This is the magic done by thoughts in our mind. Don’t know what sort of algorithm is followed by human mind but its magical .
Next time when you face a gloomy situation give a damn to it and deal with it a positive manner. You need not invest thousands of dollars in so called personality development; you need not run here and there for solace. Look into your own self. Take the help of your own thoughts in your development.
Let noble thought come to us from every side.
