Hyderabad: 11 Jan 2023: 1. Fear is a bigger obstacle than the obstacle itself "Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams." Any new pursuit requires entering uncharted territory -- that's scary. But with any great risk comes great reward. The experiences you gain in pursuing your dream will make it all worthwhile.
2. What is "true" will always endure "If what one finds is made of pure matter, it will never spoil. And one can always come back. If what you had found was only a moment of light, like the explosion of a star, you would find nothing on your return." ~ Truth cannot be veiled by smoke and mirrors -- it will always stand firm. ~ When you're searching for the "right" decision, it will be the one that withstands the tests of time and the weight of scrutiny.
3. Break the monotony "When each day is the same as the next, it's because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises." ~ Gratitude is the practice of finding the good in each day. ~ Life can easily become stagnant, mundane, and monotonous, but that changes depending on what we choose to see. ~ There's always a silver lining, if you look for it.
4. Embrace the present "Because I don't live in either my past or my future. I'm interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man." ~ There's no point dwelling in the past and letting it define you, nor getting lost and anxious about the future. But in the present moment, you're in the field of possibility ~ How you engage with the present moment will direct your life.
5. Your success has a ripple-effect "That's what alchemists do. They show that, when we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too." ~ Growth, change, and evolution are weaved into the fabric of reality. ~ Becoming a better version of yourself creates a ripple effect that benefits everything around you: your lifestyle, your family, your friends, your community.
