Life is not a zero-sum game. It may be true in stock markets where if somebody wins, somebody loses. In mathematics 2 +2 is equal to 4. In life 2 + 2 may be equal to 10. It’s not rational, as life itself is a phenomenon that defies logic. There are so many parameters in life, that even the fastest computer cannot match the outcome that life provides. We probably can extrapolate facts from the past to predict the future. However, no one can say for sure that the future would be so and so precisely. This is where statistics come into play. The law of probabilities is a good way to start the analysis. For a machine, everything is black and white. But life has shades of greys. In this present moment, can you predict the next 5 minutes? You simply can’t. Those who try to make it happen, fail miserably. And it’s true. There are billions of data points that must be taken into consideration, still, the outcome will be a probability. Don’t try to master life, yield to it.

When you open up yourself to life, where you anticipate the moments to come with yearning, that is the time that life will give you glimpses of the future. Some wishful thinking and some real results. To start experiencing this, you have to:

  • Open up to life
  • Celebrate each moment that life brings
  • Have an abundance mindset

Now, what does this mean? Simply said, life has to be treated like a celebration. When was the last time you went to that party and enjoy every moment of it? The same way, you must celebrate every moment by consciously enjoying life. Do what you love, and you will see that time ticks away,without your awareness. At the same time, do something that you dread, and theclock seems to be stuck.

An abundance mindset means that you believe that the ocean will never run out of water. There is room for many more fishes. In life, we may squander natural resources, however alternatives are available. For example: We mined coal and oil, so much so that one day they will get over. However, we found an alternative source of energy: solar, wind, hydro etc. Believe deeply that we will never run out of options. Ever wondered what if say the fruits are longer produced by trees? This will never happen, because trees like producing fruits. Yes, if we cut all the trees then this may be a scenario.However, if we ever do, we will resort to artificial (genetically modified)ways of producing fruits, like we have artificial fruits, which tastes the same. So, you see, we must have an abundance mindset. Believing that everyone will be provided for. The Lord up there is very kind.

Sometimes life does a spin, when we may be facing an adversity. These are the moments when you should firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. God has great plans for each one of us. It takes perseverance and time to unfold. Imagine you have planted a seed. Will the tree come up in one day? No. It may take years, and maybe your next generation or the generation after that may reap the fruits. So that’s the way it works. Life is a very short time. Poof! And you are gone. So, treat every moment as a gift from God. If you are dejected for some reason, look at the brighter side. Don’t focus on what you don’t have. Instead, thank God for what you have. He/She keeps sending us millions of gifts that we sometimes undermine. So, look up to the stars. Look around you. Look inside yourself. There is so much more to life than is apparent. All around you, life is flowering. Where are you?

God Bless !
