We influence everything that we came across.
As we become aware, we become involve.
“I am a part of all that I have met.”
– Alfred Lord Tennyson
You can try to ignore the fact, but doing so you influence anyway.
When we face horror, we deny any involvement. We deny as if it would keep us outside of it. But the hard reality is that we became involved the moment we became aware.
You don’t have to do a lot. Just acknowledge and pray for a peaceful resolve is enough.
It’s an illusion to think you can live your life without any spirituality.
“Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.”
It doesn’t matter what you believe. As long as you believe in something.
“Modern systems of spirituality may include a belief in a supernatural (beyond the known and observable) realm, personal growth, a quest for an ultimate or sacred meaning, religious experience, or an encounter with one’s own “inner dimension.”
How can we keep going on if we don’t believe that we are doing something that is worth doing?
Without spirituality, how can we keep our hopes and dream for the future?
This is not about god. It’s about you and your life. Having something to drive ourselves into doing good is way better than doing whatever we want without any care of consequences.
Good life is the result of good actions.
Focus most of your energy with the good people in your life.
How do you know who’s the good ones?
- Can you count on them?
- Do you like being around them?
- Are they good influence? (positive influence on your life)
If you answered ‘no’ to any of those, then maybe you should reconsider that friendship.
“One true friend adds more to our happiness than a thousand enemies add to our unhappiness.”
– Marie Dubsky
Are you a good friend?
Answer that question and you’ll find out if you are a good one.
Remember, what you send out always comes back to you.
“The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.”
– Henry David Thoreau
Only the courageous will dare to hope.
Only the people who takes actions dare to hope.
“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”
– Helen Keller
If you hope without taking any actions. It’s not hope, its wishful thinking.
Bring hope to others. Be the person who did believe that it can be done. Be the source of energy that someone needed to keep going on with their dreams.
“Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A ‘you can do it’ when things are tough.”
– Richard M. DeVos
Be a source of change in the world.
Love and compassion is the way to go.
If you find yourself in a situation where you need to show some compassion and you don’t, take some time to think about it. Reassure yourself that it’s ok to show compassion even if the person in front of you doesn’t deserve it. You don’t have to be the one to choose if you compassion is justified or not.
You don’t have to do a lot. Just a warm friendly smile can be enough.
“I work really hard at trying to see the big picture and not getting stuck in ego. I believe we’re all put on this planet for a purpose, and we all have a different purpose… When you connect with that love and that compassion, that’s when everything unfolds.”
– Ellen DeGeneres
You can never go wrong with love.
Don’t expect anything. Just give it away.
“Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to give it away.”
– Elbert Hubbard
Give away the extra that you have.
Give away with a true heart.
Give away with joy.
“To give without any reward, or any notice, has a special quality of its own.”
– Anne Morrow Lindbergh
You’ll feel great about it. It will bring new energy and a drive to accomplish your dream.
Friendship will come out of those actions. Good actions brings good relation.
All good actions are good, even if you do them without a true heart. You can never go wrong with a good action.
There is no good anger.
If you think you need anger to drive you into action, those actions will be tinted with that bad energy.
“You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.”
You build your drive without anger. You can build a positive action drive with your dream to fuel them.
“Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.”
– Joel Osteen
Little or big, nothing should drive you into rage or anger. Stay out of those negative emotions and focus on solution to keep yourself free from them.
Your dream is giving you the fuel to drive your action. Don’t let anger mix into those actions. Keep them clean and positive.
“Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.”
– Mark Twain
