Philosophy of staying positive in life.

Happy New Year 2013

Be Happy Don’t Worry its 2013

Same time during last year we welcomed 2012 and now after spending much time and accumulating new memories we are ready to say goodbye to it.

In our life things come and go and so is the case with difficulties, problems that we face every now and then, nothing stays for ever except our vision, our philosophy, our views on life.

So, be happy and don’t worry because most of the worries will get washed away with time.

Best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2013 to everyone who loves life and its natural nature. May, we all adopt a more positive attitude in everything we do by understanding the simple philosophy of positive thinking i.e.,

  • Understand the ultimate reality of our being here i.e., everything that we do, things that happen to us whether they are good or bad, our struggle in life for whatever reason, our financial situation and whatever it is are only applicable to anyone who survives, who lives a life, these things are meaningless to those who cease to exist in this form called living being. Everything we do is only relevant until we survive and today we do not have enough time, enough resource to understand this simple thing, we are not machines but human beings and we must understand this and at least enjoy some part of our life.
  • Today technology is available at our doorstep, it now plays an important part in our life, in our family and relations, our habits and lifestyle because of which it is also creating problems (sometimes we don’t even understand) because we are not using it, we are misusing it. Don’t let technology take control of our life, we must control our life, the way we actually want it.
  • Our own pride or ego is one of our biggest enemy, it is very difficult to realize the influence of pride or ego, its a silent killer which spoils everything slowly, if we are cautious, spend some time in intro-inspection then we may get more chances to realize this.
  • Everybody gets a fair chance to survive, and this is law of nature, (read more in everybody has a right to survive)we are our self responsible for a number of things that happen in our life but this doesn’t mean that we should start blaming our self. Every difficulty and problem that we face has a role in shaping our life.  A solution to every problem is to work on some solutions and if we really start to work (or even take this seriously) we’ll notice a considerable improvement in our life and things that happen to it.
  • Stop thinking, start working and you’ll find 2013 to be a Happy 2013 because happiness is a personal decision.

Despite several reasons for happiness and unhappiness, joy and sorrow, life goes on, this journey continues and our positive expectations from life make this a pleasing journey.

Adopting Positive Approach In Life Can Improve Positive Thoughts

Positive or Negative thoughts play an important role in every human life. If we have natural or self improved positive thinking we can expect more positive changes in our life while negative thinking will make even good things bad.

I cannot describe its importance in words, as it plays a role in every sphere of life. Definitely we all want to develop positive thinking and improve the existing thought power but is it possible and how long will it last. We all learn new things everyday, but nothing stays for more then a few hours or days. Why?

Well, its depends on the intensity of realization, if we feel strongly about something then it will stay with us, in our memory and actions for a longer duration and if something only touches us lightly then it will soon fade away. Understanding some basic principles of life can help us to adopt positive approach in life, that will last longer and will considerably improve our positive thinking over the time.

Positive Thinking Is An Art of Living

A single negative thought can play a havoc in our life, its like a rotten apple which spoils all other apples in the basket. If we can adopt a positive approach in life we can cross almost all hurdles of life more conveniently. Positive thinking is actually an art of living, a strong support of mutual co-existence on this planet.

We can look at nature, is it positive or negative, does nature help everyone on this planet, is it helping survival on this planet. Are animals, plants and other forms of lives surviving on this planet, spreading a positive signal of peaceful co-existence.

We never knew the answer, nor did we cared about it until we faced sudden issues that are disturbing our comfortable lifestyle on this planet right now and with a higher intensity in future, if they remain unresolved. The issue were global warming, health problems, social issues, mental problems, unrest in society, pointed to our negative approach, our negative tendency to do things by keeping our welfare in mind without looking at the welfare of our planet, its nature, diversified lives.

Problems we face today have roots in our past actions, our approach at that point of time, positive thinking is not a personal welfare scheme its about global wellness. How can we think of developing a positive approach in life for personal welfare with a narrow mindedness. “Live and let live” is the basic principle of life and if do not understand it, we should not expect development of a permanent real positive thinking.

Peaceful Co-existence Is Possible

We must understand and learn that peaceful coexistence is possible and necessary for survival of this planet and its living beings in its existing form. If we have some doubt (about this) then we may not be able to proceed any further as subconsciously our mind will try to create hurdles in one form or another. Peaceful coexistence is not a theory, its not a philosophical principle alone, its a fact and now we even have scientific proofs in its favor.

Our own personal happiness and well-being depends on others, our ecosystem is a natural society. A happy society creates a positive atmosphere which improve confidence and positive thinking, on the other hand if things are not well around us then it will effect our mentality and ultimately our own well-being.

Positive Thinking Develops by Adopting Positive Approach

Reading top 10 tips to a stronger positive thinking or listing to music and playing games will definitely help us to stay calm and positive but they will last soon as they are based on an activity which is not based on any lasting logic. A permanent, habitual positive thinking can only take place if we adopt a positive approach in life, understand things as they are. It will not only change our life but it will change life of our family and friends. A positive approach starts working subconsciously, we may not notice but it works and spreads itself to other nook and corners.

Modern Hypnosis is An Art of Developing Positive Thoughts

Today people are more interested in learning hypnosis as they see a number of immediate benefits from learning this art. There are a number of books, videos and other material which is commercially available everywhere teaching hypnosis for positive thinking, still people fail to reach anywhere after reading, watching and practicing those lessons. Most of them do not get anything they fail to develop any positive approach, instead they get a negative feeling, that it was just a marketing trap.

We must understand that hypnosis is a art of developing positive views, positive thoughts because they are very important to discover a successful life. Learning hypnosis with a narrow mindedness without adopting a universal approach will not work, because its against the basic principle of life, its principle of peaceful co-existence. We cannot think about personal progress at the cost of others.

These were some basic principles to improve positive thinking and adopt a positive approach in life. This article is not about any product or service but about life, our lives. Understanding and appreciation of these basic principles can develop a magnetic personality, an attractive personality as everyone votes for the success of a positive thinker.

This article on Self Improvement with Positive Attitude was published by me in some article directories and ezine and now I’ve republished it here on this philosophy blog.

Intentions Are Powerful Justifications

Intentions Can Provide Honest Justification

When there is no clue we can try to look at the intention. Intention seems to be more important then the action and its results. Love is not an action its an intention, a feeling, an honest example of love is a relationship between a mother and a child. A mother can be a good mother or poor mother in her duties towards child depending upon her eduction, background and several other factors but we cannot doubt the intentions of a mother. If she is healthy (physically/mentally) she will definitely work for the welfare of her child and any decision related to her child is backed by this intention.

 

What Are Intentions

 

  1. An intention can be defined as a real hidden agenda, something which we may not talk about but exists in our mind. For example, we may apply for a job and even work to get the job while thinking that it is not possible for me to get this job. Maybe we tried to be realistic and thus avoid any negative feelings later. Our intentions play there role in our preparations, the way we face the interview and answer the questions. On most occasions we’ll find that the results were very close to what we had on our mind.
  2. An intention is a motive, which is also used in legal proceeding to solve a case. A motive or intention provides the reason behind the action, which is used to decide whether case involves a crime or it was just an incident.
  3. According to Dictionary.com is 1) an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result, 2) a purpose or goal; aim.

Intentions and Positive Thinking

In the case mentioned above we can say that intentions depict our thinking. A positive thinker will have a positive intention while a negative thinker will have a negative intention. In fact it is true that when we have strong positive thinking our intentions also turn out to be positive, we do things whole whole-heartedly and not halfheartedly like in other cases and thus we command success every where, in every thing we do our express interest in.

 

Positive thinking is not only good for our own self, our family but it is a feeling of community welfare, today we see so many books, posts and courses on positive thinking that only highlight how positive thinking can so many benefits to you, your career, your family, they do not take a down to earth community approach. They try to teach a selfish, materialistic way to develop positive thinking or improving intentions positively.

We must not forget that we are all part of the universe, a cosmos and whatever we do to it comes back to us. Even if we forget completely about our personal welfare and focus on the big picture alone, we’ll definitely improve our life, our career and everything we are trying to focus on with a narrow minded approach.

 

Now if we still look at others and there intentions and what they are doing and then complain about it, then we are only expressing our own psyche, our negative thoughts (complains cannot originate from a positive thinker for reasons I can’t explain in words right here). This mentality is something we work on when we take classes in positive thinking, manifestation, hypnotism and other similar courses.

How to Improve Life with Positive Intentions

Intentions can be used to justify an action, a good intention will definitely deserve reward if the action and its reaction was pleasing or it can also be used to review a punishment which resulted from any action backed by a positive intention.

Intention is a mental process, a times it can even be isolated from action i.e., we may have a intention but never worked on it, never performed an action to fulfil it. Even then its judgemental, it can be used to pass a judgement, it can be used to conclude. A person interested in something right or wrong is somewhere supporting it.

 

A positive thought or view is more likely to lead to a positive intention while a negative thought or view will give birth to a negative intention. The question is not only related to our personal well being, something which is the only priority today (and thus creating a negative environment globally).

 

A simple way to improve life (slowly for results which will stay forever), is to develop positive thinking, try to see the positive side of everything. Don’t let negative emotions rule our mind, you don’t like something or someone then don’t think about hurting him/her instead think how to protect/save yourself from such negative interactions with the person or how to move ahead, progress (in whatever suitable way) so that such circumstances are left behind.

 

Simple things in life can make and do make big changes, learning good things is difficult as its a slow process, it can take from months to years, we can read and understand things but in order to make them a part of our lifestyle, our nature we’ll have constantly learn and improve over time. Habit of positive or negative intentions do not develop or change in a day, they are a result of our past experiences and circumstances and how we reacted to them and its result.

Another Approach to Intentions with Deepak Chopra

Law of Attraction Justifies Power of Intentions

Now a days we are more interested in doing things that have benefits which are clearly defined (it is an effect of our modern lifestyle deeply influenced by marketing forces). These days there is new phrase which is gaining popularity “Law of Attraction”, which states that we can achieve anything and everything if we start thinking about it, doing things associated with it, making it a part of our dream etc. etc. and therefore it is approving power of intentions in our life, we can rewarded or punished for our intentions, our thinking, our views as it is certain that if we are happy we’ll think about happiness while on the other hand if we are worried (due to any reason) we’ll definitely try to find a solution, which may include removing the cause or simply making arrangements for defence.

Most wild animals actually attack when they feel they are in risk, which is often not the case, but people have to face the consequences of this.
