My thought of the day: you cannot become free of anything by fighting it.
There are so many stories and legends that teach us that if we want to become better people, we need to battle the demons inside of us; that that is our own sacred war.
But what if fighting our own inner demons is actually making them stronger? Is fighting oneself then really the answer?
The paradox of life is that you cannot become free of anything by fighting it. When you resist something you automatically become shackled to it because you are unconsciously enhancing it. What we need to do is simply be aware of our own imperfections, accept them AND focus on the good in us.
To live life to the fullest, you must stand guard at the gate of your garden and let only the very best information enter. You truly cannot afford the luxury of a negative thought—not even one. The most joyful, dynamic and contented people of this world are no different from you or me in terms of their makeup. We are all flesh and bones. We all come from the same universal source.
However, the ones who do more than just exist, the ones who fan the flames of their human potential and truly savor the magical dance of life do different things than those whose lives are ordinary. Foremost amongst the things that they do is adopt a positive paradigm about their world and all that is in it. ― Robin S. Sharma,
