How bright is life? I often think of it and then after much self-questioning, I reach at no conclusion. Nada!
What is it that makes this world so bright and yet, our minds are full of darkness? As I see now, from the window of my room, a lone tree, standing in all its glory, its leaves shining bright, full of hope, and yet, the concrete against this mighty tree speaks of the harsh reality of life.
This gloomy world that we have all created around ourselves, is crying out loud to let it die! Let it bury peacefully under the blanket of extreme optimism and then let it extinguish, forever. All gone.
Is it possible? Is it really possible? I say, YES! Think of the first sad thought that crosses your mind. What is it? Now think of the first happy thought that crosses your mind. Accept it fully. Embrace it. Let is empower your mind. Let is be your inspiration. Let it surround your teeny tiny world and make it your only world.
Wasn’t it easy? To create happiness doesn’t require any external force, but our own mind. Now that I see, I choose to see the bright hues of this mighty tree, not that concrete structure. It is my mind that has the power to overturn my world into a world full of hope, life, happiness and everything that will make me breathe in peace!
Give your mind that power, for once. Try it. Try to focus on that tree. And you’ll never lose hope 🙂
