Look at your Light!

Peace comes easy in an environment where the basic needs are being met, people around are reasonable and one feels relatively free. However, no wisdom seems to bring peace if one is struggling to feed their children, hurting because of a loved one or feeling restricted.

Peace continues to call and heart yearns to return to peace but the prevailing situation blocks it ruthlessly. Nothing seems to work, search for peace becomes a challenge. Anger, hopelessness, fear, sadness take turns to lodge the heart. Relationships may begin to deteriorate and one begins to feel lonely. Focus on what is going on may not help much.

And then, sooner or later, a light shines! A light of hope, a light that gives strength to the feeble heart. Actually, that light is always there but it is above the situations around us. And as soon as we are able to take our focus away from our insecurities and look beyond what is here and now, the rays of that light meet our eyes.

My dear friends, let us try and focus on the light and not on the darkness that the current situation may encompass. Yes, it may hurt but try to rise above what meets the eye. Close your eyes and visualize what you want, where you want to get at and slowly move towards it. Combination of 'trust' in God, 'focus' on the goal, good 'action plan' and 'small steps' in the right direction will take you there. Remember the light that you see is shining from your destination, keep your eye on it and get closer to it everyday!

  5. Whoa! One of my ALL TIME favourite thoughts is "An optimist sees opportunities in every difficulty, and a pessimist sees difficulties in every opportunity.

    Like u rightly say, its the outlook that matters.
