Seeing life with a positive vision brings good energy and a healthy outlook to any experience. You can actually train yourself to look at everything that comes and goes from your life with the glasses of optimism. A touch of surrender and detachment also comes in handy when you’re looking to stay calm and contented in times of struggles and strife. And don’t forget to bring that all-important sense of humor!
The key to cultivating a positive vision is to trust in an ultimate universal goodness. This one shift of belief filters down through all the different areas of your life, including the way you experience and respond to problems. With trust, you can stay positive and focused appreciating and growing from whatever blessings or challenges come before you.
Looking at trials and tribulations with a positive eye isn’t meant to create more troubles or deny happiness. Au contraire! With a positive view, even troubles can bring happiness as they inspire you to improve yourself. Sometimes challenges act as tools that can pry you loose from a smaller worldview and push you ? running and screaming, if need be ? into precious new realms of spiritual awareness.
Anyone who wants to accomplish something great, whether in worldly or spiritual life, must sacrifice certain immediate wishes and comforts.
The road to success in any endeavor is to choose what is beneficial in the long run over what may be pleasant in the moment.
Seeing troubles with a positive eye doesn’t mean that you never experience suffering. Rather, even in the midst of suffering, you can simultaneously enter a place that’s free from suffering .. an awareness that reaches beyond the level of your body and the physical world into the realm of spirituality.
