When it comes to our life, there is no problem that cannot be solved.
Regardless of what is our biggest issue in life, we need to remember that we are not the only person in the world with such a problem. Yes, sometimes we feel overwhelmed, and may even collapse under the stress/pressure – BUT – we can collect ourselves and find something positive in any situation.
For example, we may learn something very important and useful for the future, or we may realize that, indeed, “what doesn’t kill us, only makes us stronger”. Overcoming obstacles helps us gain life wisdom, increasing our ability to achieve our goals.
Human brain finds interesting solutions for its problems: often when some parts of the brain are damaged, for any reason – the other parts of the brain take over the functions of the damaged parts. Why not use a similar idea in our life: if something doesn’t work the way we want – we can focus on something else and find beauty elsewhere, in another aspect of life.
We may sometimes go through difficult times, but there is always a possibility for change.
There is a wonderful man traveling the world: he has no arms and no legs. Crowds of people in many different countries come to listen to him talk about happiness and the beauty of life. He found a way of turning his disability into true power. No, not everyone needs to “expose” his or her weakness or otherness on the public stage. But everyone can find what will give him/her happiness in life.
It is never too late. Never.
Because life is not a race or contest where we need to prove who is the fastest, richest or smartest.
Life is an opportunity to progress as much as possible, and to find beauty and happiness in living. When we become aware of that, the whole world changes its colors.
The way we think affects our own life and the lives of others. It really does. It isn’t just a statement, an opinion or a belief. What we focus on, the amount of our attention, the energy we spent perpetuating in our mind particular thoughts – all of it brings particular results.
This is how it works:
All of physics, as we know it, is based on quantum theory, which is, in turn, the basis of one-third of our economy and its products. Quantum mechanics has become the most precise physical theory, and it not only explains everything from how the stars and sun shine, to why objects appear to be hard – but also gives us everything from computer chips, transistors, lasers to atomic bombs.
The two basic principles of quantum theory are:
1. Reality – is being created by an Observer.
2. Connectedness – any things that have ever interacted are forever connected, “entangled.”
What does it mean?
It means that quantum theory confirms the knowledge of the ancient teachings: the material/physical world, which we perceive through our senses – does not exist. It is an illusion. What we see exists only in our, that is so-called observers’ brains, or more precisely in our minds, which sum up the experiences of our senses – giving us the illusion of “reality”. AND – connectedness means that we are all creating and co-creating our world not only for ourselves, but also for those with whom we are connected. That is all of nature, all of the universe, and people on the planet – because on the energy level we are connected with all that is, one way or another.
We all are part of a big energy field that lets us create what we believe to be our “reality”.
Everything that exists – is simply energy. That includes all that is material, i.e. measurable by our senses, AND all that we can only perceive: that is our thoughts, emotions, electrons (yes, nobody ever has seen or weighed an electron) etc.
All that exists, the energy, manifests itself through waves and vibrations. It means that everything, on the smallest scale – vibrates.
Imagine, for instance, radio waves:
the frequency of their vibrations determines their quality, outreach etc. Now imagine that: our thoughts are like radio waves. All that we think has a particular vibration, and because of that – depending on the frequency of their vibrations – our thoughts have a certain quality and outreach. And that decides how our thinking affects the “reality” (the illusion) that we create and co-create, whether we are aware of it or not.
For some of us – the world is a place existing on its own, in which we have no say and can’t control it in any way.
Some people perceive the world as a place which is hostile, full of the “others” whom they need to fight, or avoid, always ready to attack or defend themselves.
For others, the world is a place that serves their Ego, where they can fulfill their needs, whether materially or emotionally.
There are people who see the world as oneness, where everything is purposeful.
Yet others see it as a big unknown, where anything is possible.
How would you describe your life: does it happen to you, despite you, against you, for you or with you?
Whichever answer you find within – it will tell you where you are at this moment. That’s all. There is no right or wrong in any of these. It is only the reflection of who you presently are.
It will also tell you whether what you think of the world is in accordance with your deeper, inner Truth. If the way you live your life maintains your happiness, if there is nothing you need to change to find fulfillment – then you live your life according to the vision of your Heart.
* In The Master Teachings of HOPE we use the word “Heart” to describe the core of your essence, your “pure inner person”. The part of you where you hold your Own Truth, free of any conditioning and fears.
Can positive thinking can help solve problems that are really hard to solve?
Let’s take this for example: many people on our planet suffer from hunger, and we often have tears in our eyes while hearing news about starving children in impoverished parts of the world.
The truth is that there is enough food on the planet for all of us. We have an abundance of food, and we have an abundance of resources.
The fact is that the basic reason for the lack of food for the poor derives directly from the inner fears (or so-called subconscious shadows) controlling the behavior of some of the influential people who run the corporations depleting our planet of its resources, and destroying our environment. For the sake of acquiring more money (which for them represents power, and thus they delude themselves that money will protect them from their inner fears) their actions become selfish and/or harmful – for instance, deliberate sinking huge grain cargos to keep the higher prices on the market, instead of feeding the hungry.
If these unfortunate, fear-driven people were willing to learn how to get rid of their inner fears – and change their fearful thoughts into positive thinking – they wouldn’t be drowning food, and that may contribute to resolving world hunger.
Big steps consist of many small steps.
Positive thinking can move mountains. Positive thinking has helped millions of people to liberate themselves from slavery, defend against invaders/occupiers, or survive in concentration camps. They believed in a better tomorrow, and it has become their reality.
Changing our life situation, finding a better job, creating a wonderful relationship with our loved one – all of this begins with the first step.
The first step is to change the way we think. When we fail at something – let us remember that we can get up and try again. We can do it.
