We make our own heaven or hell

We start hearing of heaven and hell from our grandma tales. Good people go heaven and bad to hell. What makes life heaven or hell for you?

We are the architects of our own fate. We meet the miserable people, who are always complaining about anything and everything, and  the optimistic people who always look at the glass as half full and are constantly seeking more out of life.

If a person can keep his mind pleasant in spite of the sorrows and difficulties he faces, he experiences heavenly bliss. But there are people who are always sad and dissatisfied. Such people even though wealthy and healthy are unable to experience true bliss. They feel they are living in hell.

The mind is nothing but a mix of positive and negative thoughts. The negative thoughts does nothing but drains our energy. Negative thinking can become a habit of mind and is easy to inherit.

Many fail in relationships because of the negative thoughts. Instead of feeling totally disappointed and frustrated do the little efforts to make the conditions improve.

The negative thoughts even without our knowledge takes full control of our mind.

Arrogance, ego,jealousy, grudges,revenge,possessiveness,domination, selfishness all make us live in hell.

The selfish believe they deserve more than others and believe they are the center of universe.

We meet people who give a lot of emphasis on material wealth as a sign of real wealth. They are rich but bankrupt inside and are unhappy. We see people dissatisfied with job, with  marriage, house,properties etc. They come jealous and then life becomes hell.

Sometimes people are caught up in the past and future too much. They miss many wonderful moments in life.

Some people are very much skilled in finding the fault with people and situations. They focus more on problems rather than solution.

When we think positively, we approach life with enthusiasm, there are good relationships, we have the strength to face  challenges in life. . This is the heaven created by our own thoughts and actions. You have the ability to bring Heaven on Earth even in the most chaotic of situations.

We have seen people with disabilities achieving a lot in life. But there are also people with sound health who idle around and stay unhappy.

We see relations between husband and wife, parents and children, between friends etc getting spoiled because of misunderstandings.

A positive approach to any situation can bring new changes. 

A happy mind can make the surroundings seem heavenly. But an unhappy mind only makes the surroundings unpleasant as hell.If you act according to moral principles you can create your own heaven right here.
