The first thing that a human has to realise to create a life they really want to live is not to hold on to the past. The past has nothing to do with your future or present life.
It is your self-effort to be aware of what you think about yourself in the present and in the future that determines everything in life that you are going to receive as your experience. If there is one thing I would recommend to understand the way nature works, it is this: Realising God and failing to understand the way nature works is not going to bring any change. But sometimes, failing to understand God and realising the way of nature can bring success to your life. It is like a power which is not under your control but is controlling the entire world. It is not by choice or chance. It is not by faith or belief. It is the true nature of nature. So take self-effort to hold on to positive thoughts or a positive end result which you want to see as an experience in the present or in the future, and the rest is magical.
There is a huge difference between change and uncertainty. It’s a very simple truth. What is under your control is only the experience you want to experience. That which can never be controlled is the change that is happening as per nature. Our future is decided by our present actions. If one is following healthy food habits in the present, it will definitely reflect positively in the future. If one is going to take sincere effort to increase his skill in the present, his ability to face the future is going to be great. So ask yourself whether you are wasting time in things which cannot be changed by you or the things which will never change for you. Once you realise this simple truth, you will see a positive side in the change you want to see.
Once you take self-effort to realise the above four aspects of human life, you will tell yourself that you are the only powerful creation which can feel the divine power. Being aware of this one power and having clarity about the four aspects, everything has to fall in place. Ask yourself about what you think about your-self. You are not a physical body which is away or separated from the divine power. It is not easy to accept that you are God but it’s easy to accept that you are not different from God at any given point of time. You are a part of God which is the source of every creation. Above all, you have all the power to connect with the God within, which is the power of all powers.
Once you accept and realise this truth, you are blessed to achieve all that you want in life from this moment till your last breath. In fact, nothing can block your way; the entire universe has to pave way for you. In other words, the power to manifest what you want in life is already within you because the divine power is within you.
Wishing you a life full of peace, success & happiness.
