The real remedy of tension - Positive Thinking
May 5, 2011 6:06am CST
Thinking is an integral part of our life. We cannot do anything without thinking and most of the time negative thinking brings tension which is the root of all diseases. Thinking is a great art. If you let your thoughts run unconstrained, they may damage your present happiness by opening the past chapter of your life which may be bitter or getting into future which is unknown and uncertain. Thus it may turn your life into a miserable one. The most important journey you can take is the journey within. This is a journey to the truth of who you really are. This is the place, just beyond everyday consciousness, to choose creative thinking rather than automated thinking, response rather than reaction, peace, love and harmony rather than stress, conflict and chaos. There is a story of an engine driver who was always in cheerful mood and positive in thinking. He used to see the brighter side of every affair. One day, he met with a serious accident. A car ran over him. One of his legs was seriously injured and it had to be amputated. His friends thought, "Now he will not see the bright side of life". They went to meet him in the hospital, but it was a great surprise to find him in the same cheerful mood. It was he who consoled the visitors rather than being consoled by them. He said smilingly "Now I have to buy and clean only one boot. So it will save both my money and time". Thus, we can solve our problems jut by maintaining a heallthy and positive approach to life thereby keeping our mind balanced. Nowadays, we invite tensions as a result of which many chronic diseases, such as diabetes, depression, frustration, heart disease, hypertension, etc., have erupted. Under tension which has become almost traumatic nowadays, we cannot take proper decision and are unable to distinguish between right and wrong. If we think positive, we can do good deeds and our outlook becomes positive. Peace, happiness and contentment are eternal gifts. A poor man also may be happy and he may lead a tension-free life if he has developed contentment in life. Hence, the answer to the question - 'what is the solution for removing our tension?' is very simple. If we begin our journey within and realize that in this world, we have nothing to lose but we are sure to receive 'what is allotted to us' in terms of our actions that we take - this frame of mind will help us to overcome tension.
