Being Positive…!


A little girl walked daily to and from school. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trip to school. As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with thunder and lightning.


The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school, and she herself feared that the electrical storm might harm her child.


Following the roar of thunder, lightning, through the sky and full of concern, the mother quickly got in her car and drove along the route to her child’s school.


As she did so, she saw her little girl walking along, but at each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up and smile. Another and another were to follow quickly, each with the little girl stopping, looking up and smiling.


Finally, the mother called over to her child and asked, “What are you doing?”


The child answered, smiling, “God just keeps taking pictures of me!”


That’s being positive, having a positive disposition!

“If a problem has no solution, it may not be a problem, but a factnot to be solved, but to be coped with over time.” — Shimon Peres 


Baby mosquito came back after flying for the first time.

His dad asked him, “How do you feel?”

He replied, “It was wonderful, everyone was clapping for me!


Now that’s called Positive Attitude.


“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.” — William James


If we think positively,

Sound becomes music,

Movement becomes dance,

Smile becomes laughter,

Mind becomes meditative and

Life becomes a celebration!


Positive attitude changes everything.

    Hari Aum,

    “Positive attitude changes everything”. It is true, positive thinking changes our lives, but the inspiration and the teachings come only from a guru and without his guidance we can’t change our lives. I always get encouraged and inspired to have positive thinking from you.
    Swami-ji, your blessings are always with me and my family.
