How wonderful it can be to see that everybody is happy and healthy.
How amazing it is when people smile!
As an idealist I would like to see that everybody is happy and my ambition is to do something important and meaningful. I can see you frown at what I said? And I totally agree with you. How can I dare to claim it? How is it possible to accomplish such a mission? How is it possible at all? I surely don’t know how to do it, but I wish it so much. Life is given in return for good works, don’t you think so? Mother Teresa was asked what was the meaning of life, and she said to help other people, and I thought, ‘What a strange thing to say’ – but maybe it’s the right thing to say. So, let us think together how through this short post we can try to help each other, let us find the sources of positive energy, which is responsible for our happiness.
In Chinese culture, moving water is a symbol of “chi” (positive energy) and luck. Water is essential to our life, drinking enough and right quantity of water is vital to our health. We cannot live without water, i.e. we are not happy with it either. Water is associated with calmness because of its cooling effect in our body. It is, in fact, the calmness within us, peace and centeredness of our minds and souls, while moving water is a powerful force that carries away everything, in particular our negative energy. Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it.
Aren’t you surprised? Yep, good and health food is also a source of positive energy. But remember that only healthy one, not that chocolate bars which are hidden in your bedside-tables. Good food and nutrition brings us – health, positive energy and with it endless possibilities. Our body is a very complex system which needs to be cared. Every part of the system works according to its own rules, very strict ones. It is like a machine, when one detail works badly, it affects the entire system. Hey, human body is the only machine for which there are no spare parts. That is why it is very important to provide enough energy to make these parts work. Good food should be light and, at the same time, nourishing. It also should look good and attract you attention. There are so many books of healthy receipts that you cannot find an excuse for your not willingness to prepare a nice meal for yourself. You also forgot how interesting can be the process of cooking. Cooking is at once child’s play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love. So, let’s love and cook.
One of the best sources of energy is Love, who has any doubts? Have you ever see a person in bad mood that is in love? NEVER. Love does wonders. Love really makes this world a happier place. Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own. Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible – it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could. Love is a chemical process which transforms our bodies as well. And I mean not only women-and-men love, but daughter-mother, son-father, sister-brother and etc.. Love creates also a respect towards another person. It makes you kinder and more patient. Love influences your body in every aspect. It is the strongest weapon against depression. Love is our life, until we live we love.
Family and Friends
Family and friends should ride in tandem. That’s just part of life and thus it’s always good to have family and friends in your life. That’s when you know who truly loves and cares about you! It is often said that your wife/husband should become your best friend, and then your family life can be successful. You feel better when there are people who understand and support you. You need someone to talk to; you need a shoulder to rely on. Men need to spend time in male company, women – in female. It is important when you family understands your needs and let you live your own life as well. It is fun and compromise at the same time.
Hobbies and Travel
Every person needs a hobby; it is an unlimited source of energy. Usually our hobby is not our job, unfortunately, but this is something very interesting for us. It can be stamp collecting or knitting, anything you like. A hobby can make a person feel more well-balanced in their lifestyle. Taking up a hobby can also help a person manage his or her stress better. Everyone needs an escape from the world and discovering something new. Amazingly, hobby can help understand ourselves better. It reveals our inner secrets and desires. For instance, why do you like writing? I write to become the person that hides inside me. And what about you? Why do you have your blog? Isn’t it your source of positive energy?
I believe that traveling can be also a hobby. Who doesn’t like traveling? Traveling is the most effective way to learn about the world you live in. Traveling is like a book can help you discover this world. We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
Finally, my list of sources of positive energy is very short one, and surely doesn’t contain everything that really influences our life and makes it happier. There are so many points to add, so I ask my nice readers and followers to help me with it. I can see already a spark in your eyes, aren’t you interested? I feel that everybody has something to share with…
