“Neither faith nor fear
Where hope exists,
The God is there.”
People usually have faith on or fear of god. We don’t know god personally, never met him, but still believe in his existence.
That comes from our religious beliefs, guidance of elders and the stories we have been listening since childhood.
We pray daily or whenever we need some spiritual guidance.
We feel scared from terrible dreams, unexpected incidents, past actions, and upcoming events.
The fear comes from the concepts of sin, devil, hell and punishment for immoral acts.
“Believe and hope both are crucial for life. Hope is needed to live and believe makes the hope a reason to live.”
For those who believe, hope is an another name of god. We do start every new day with a little hope, live with a hope and wait for a day that will bring something especial.
The God considers about your fear or faith, I don’t know but I am pretty sure If you work with pure dedication and determination, the god will fill your life with his love and blessings.
Sadness addiction (Revisited)
In sadness addiction, I wrote:-
“You can’t control your problems but can control the amount of your attention towards them.”
Just removal of sadness doesn’t ensure the happiness. You can never be happy If you associate your happiness with:-
- Your achievements
- Other’s actions
- Expectations of self or others
- Negative happening (loss/harm of others)
- Out of reach luxuries
If you get what you want or someone fulfills your expectations, you can be happy for a while but not forever.
You can be happy forever if you:-
- Make yourself and others free from expectations
- Remove conditions for being happy
- Choose forgiveness instead of anger and revenge.
- Give equal importance to the world exists inside you (Mind, heart,soul and physical body) like this outer world.
- Don’t try to control everything/everyone around you.
- Have learned the tactics of let the things go and move on.
Never depend on the others or few objects for your happiness. Do everything what makes you happy.
Never hesitate to say ‘no’. The people who really care for you would never mind, but If they do that means your happiness & decisions don’t matter for them.
Never feel bad if someone criticize or hurt you. This is a part of life.
Whenever you feel extreme grief or depression, suppose you are a free soul wandering around freely.
Just as a soul, what you need to be happy?
………… Only peace & peace.
