The Very Bright Side
“Always keep your mind as bright and clear as the vast sky, the great ocean, and the highest peak, empty of all thoughts. Always keep your body filled with light and heat. Fill yourself with the power of wisdom and enlightenment.” – Morihei Ueshiba
Assume positive intent from others and take positive actions on your own part. We too easily shift with the others’ winds instead of creating our own. We live in degrees, often putting too much emphasis on the irrelevant. We have put most of the obstacles in our own path with our thoughts, attitudes and actions. The bright side – we can change these.
If we believe the best in others and foster it in ourselves, forgetting the “they don’t deserve” mindset, we can see the world in a new light. So ease up on the judgement and discontent. Give what you want to receive. Choose to see the bright side, the dark side will take care of itself.
Get out of your own way, expect the best, give your best and seize the very bright side of the day.
Thank you for this uplifting thought today! I try to always focus on the bright side of things because to do otherwise is unproductive and it really makes you unhappy. As you so rightly stated, the dark side takes care of itself. Great thought for today!!
Thanks for sharing!
I can tend to see the down side of many things. Thanks for the reminder to give out that which I want to receive!
