When we hate our enemies, we are giving them power over us:
power over our sleep, our appetites, our blood pressure, our health,
and our happiness. Our enemies would dance with joy if only they knew
how they were worrying us, lacerating us, and getting even with us!
Our hate is not hurting them at all, but our hate is turning
our days and nights into a hellish turmoil. ~Dale Carnegie
Life is full of painful events, and people who have lost their way and hurt others.
Our pain is not lessened when we respond with hatred. In fact, the opposite
occurs: When we hate people who hurt us, we come to resemble what we hate,
or worse, and then we suffer all the more. What is evil is our response.
We have choices, and love is the most powerful eliminator of all.
A good start to a day very important. If you are in a positive frame of mind in the morning than you are very likely to have a productive day. Similarly, if you get upset or are troubled with something in the morning than you are going to have the same negativity throughout the day. So it is imperative to keep yourself in the company of positive people. People who make you see the positive side of things. ~The Fresh Quotes
If you’re looking for inner peace from the outside world, you’re not going to get that. The inner peace starts with looking at you from the inside. Understanding that everything that comes to you is what you are. Everything from friends to boyfriends to the job you get – it’s all a direct reflection of what you are on the inside. ~ Mary J. Blige
