All of us want to feel great all the time; who doesn’t? However, to begin with, we should first start with thinking positive, then feeling positive, then good, then better, and then, finally, great.

All of us want to feel great all the time; who doesn’t? However, to begin with, we should first start with thinking positive, then feeling positive, then good, then better, and then, finally, great. Certainly, we cannot feel great about anything until we feel good and positive about ourselves from within, despite what others say or what negative things have happened in the past. The idea is not to hide the negative and pretend that it’s not there. Instead, we must extract hidden opportunities from what appears to be chaotic, unfair and unwanted to us in a given situation. We must not forget the fact that everything that’s happening in our life has a reason for coming our way, trusting that it has a specific purpose. This helps us to maintain a positive outlook that would make us feel satisfied  from within, which forms the foundation of feeling great.

Feeling great is not a temporary euphoria. It propels us into a constant positive awareness of our self driven by conscience. This comes when we experience our true self, the identity and resources as inherent facts of our being, not just a hope or a theory, but a reality to be experienced once in a lifetime. In quietness we connect with the reality that anchors our life in such a way that no upheaval can make us a victim. As we gain self-mastery, we feel great and confident in all situations. No excuse of hiding behind  “because”, “if” and “but” which can deceive us in any way. Instead, we say, “I can. Let’s do it now!”

So, when we have the courage to dare, to experiment and not fear the outcome, we feel great, as we haven’t simply done the usual complaining, blaming and regretting. Spiritual perspectives that emerge from quietness enable us to drive towards inner self and perceive the positive, the good, the better, the best and the great, enabling us to reach greater heights of consciousness. Hope you all will start feeling great from this very moment.
