Give and you shall receive

Whatever you choose for yourself, give to another.If you choose to be happy, cause another to be happy.If you choose to be prosperous, cause another to prosper.If you choose more love in your life, cause another to have more love in theirs.
Do this sincerely—not because you seek personal gain, but because you really want the other person to have that—and all the things you give away will come to you.

Why is that so? How does that work?

The very act of your giving something away causes you to experience that you have it to give away. Since you cannot give to another something you do not now have, your mind comes to a new conclusion, a New Thought, about you—namely, that you must have this, or you could not be giving it away.

This New Thought then becomes your experience. You start “being” that. And once you start “being” a thing, you’ve engaged the gears of the most powerful creation machine in the universe—your Divine Self.Whatever you are being, you are creating.The circle is complete, and you will create more and more of that in your life. It will be made manifest in your physical experience.This is the greatest secret of life.

Warrior of light

I am reading Paulo's warrior of light and can totally relate to it. It contains chapters one per page about the qualities/ wisdom of the warrior of the light. This warrior is a person who is just like us. A person who is trying hard to bring the light to the people around. Each chapter has a metaphorical meaning about the war, love, faith to that of everyday life.

" From now on - and for the next few hundred years - the Universe is going to help warriors of light and hinder the prejudiced.

The Earth's energy needs to be renewed.
New ideas need space.
Body and soul need new challenges.

The future has become the present, and every dream except those dreams that involve preconceived ideas - will have a chance to be heard.

Anything of importance will remain;anything useless will disappear. However, it is not the warrior's responsibility to judge the dreams of others, and he does not waste time criticising other people's decisions.

In order to have faith in his own path, he does not need to prove that someone else's path is wrong. "

Life is a rollar coaster ride!

This is from the latest books I read, Eleven Minutes by Paulo coelho

"I stood for a long time by the roller coaster, and I noticed that most people get on it in search of excitement, but that once it starts, they are terrified and wants the cars to stop.

The roller coaster is my life; life is a fast, dizzying game; life is a parachute jump; it’s taking chances, falling over and getting up again; it’s mountaineering; it’s wanting to get to the very top of yourself and to feel angry and dissatisfied when you don’t manage it.

If I believe that the track is my destiny and that God is in charge of the machine, then the nightmare becomes something thrilling. It becomes exactly what it is, a roller coaster, a safe, reliable toy, which will eventually stop, but, while the journey lasts, I must look at the surrounding landscape and whoop with excitement. "

How well said!!

My wish for you today

Where there is pain, I wish you peace and mercy.

Where there is self-doubting, I wish you a renewed confidence in your ability to work through it.

Where there is tiredness, or exhaustion, I wish you understanding, patience, and renewed strength.

Where there is fear, I wish you love, and courage.
