Life Is Beautiful.
“Taking the first footstep with a good thought, the second with a good word, and the third with a good deed, I entered paradise.”
– book of Arda Viraf (circa 6th century) from “The Power”, page 182
I am a high school student and have gone through so much in a very short period of time. When I was a child I was not that interested in reading books but I started reading some romantic books as a teenager. When I came across The Secret I was not very interested in reading it at first. However, after I did finally read it, it blew my mind. When I got to know that what ever had happened in my life up until now was because of my thinking, I started to ‘think better’ to be happy.
And that was when my life changed! I took a whole new turn after that. The book became my best friend. I read it when I was sad and it instantly made me happy even after reading just one page. I read it at night before sleeping, and during my free lectures in school. I read it when I am happy or when I am sad, or, just anytime. Reading it during the day always freshens up my mood and makes me happy.
“Desire connects you with the thing desired and exception draws it into your life.”
– Bob Proctor (one of my favorites from “The Secret” and the first one to be my favorite.)
When I started to love my life and be happy and grateful towards it, every day became happy and full of joy. I loved every single second of my day and my life in general. I used to be suicidal, even for some minor seeming things. But after starting to feel gratitude towards my life and knowing that everything happens for a reason, I began seeing the reason for everything that made me sad, and then I was thankful for everything that was making it happen. I was so happy and grateful for anything and everything that sent me that book!
“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
-Albert Einstein (From “The Power”, page 140)
I used to blame other people for the inconveniences in my life and I used to rely on other people for my happiness but now I know that everything that is happening in my life is because of me. Why make life miserable if I am the one in control?
“If the only prayer you say in your entire life is ‘thank you’ – that is enough.”
– Meister Eckhart (From “The Power” page 129)
That is my story! I am so very thankful to everyone who has come across this. Thank you to Rhonda, for coming into my life as an angel, and thank you so much for The Power.
