Positivity, Patience And Persistence Are Keys To Miracles

No matter how negative a situation seems to be, it can always be turned around into something beautiful and meaningful. It may not be easy or it may take a long time. But if it’s something that you desire and truely believe in, it will be worth the effort because the peacefulness, joy, gratitude and sense of accomplishment you gain afterwards are imcompareable and the lessons you have learned along the way can benefit you for the rest of your life.

It’s important to always hold best intentions at heart. If there are inner conflict and resentment in you that prevent you to be positively  in a situation, deal with those negative emotions first because you can’t escape your own thoughts and emotions and they will filter everything that comes into your awareness. If you keep suppressing negative thoughts and emotions instead of acknowledging them, bitterness will become part of you and the consequencial pain will consume you. So clear and let go of your negativity first so that you can see love and truth in that situation rather than believing in false illusions created by your tainted awareness. Then you are able to carry out positive actions in a very natural manner as actions are physical reflections of your inner state.

Everything is moving and changing. So never think that a certain situation can not be changed. If you consistantly change your attitude and actions, it will affect other people and the situation will certainly change but you have to have the will to initiate it and do something about it rather than waiting for someone else to do it for you or a fairy tale miracle to happen.

Never think that what you are able to do now is not enough. Do not judge yourself by comparing your starting point with someone elses’ finished results. Long-lasting changes are never easy to make and they are not mean to be done in just one day. If you can not do extraordinary things, do small things in an extraordinary way. Do something positive everyday about a situation you want to change whether it’s personal or worldly, be consistent and persistent at it.  You will be surprised what it can mount to overtime. When you look back, you will be so happy about and proud of the decisions you have made and the things you have done.

Love and light,
