The human mind is the strongest of all the organisms on this planet. It helps us learn, grow and make life decisions. Human mind is fascinating and a very complicated organ. It has so many functions and has unimaginable potential. The human mind is the biggest tool in shaping the society, in bringing new technology and making a better world.
Our mind starts developing ever since childhood and keeps growing until we die. The setup of the human mind is determined by the society a person grows in, the people he interacts with and the kind of knowledge he gains throughout your life. One of the most famous Indian author and spiritual guru Amit Ray ones said:
“Mind is a flexible mirror, adjust it, to see a better world.”
This means that just like a mirror, human mind believes what the eyes show. It believes what the ears register and it gets shaped according to what the person want to think. As we have already said, the human mind is a very complicated organ; you can either control your mind or let your mind take control of you.
What is Your Definition of a Better World?
Every person has their definition of the better world and the worst world. Ironically two people living in the same part of the world can have two different opinions about this world. One person can consider it as the worst world, and the other person can consider it as the better world. The world, in reality, is the same. What makes the difference are the mindset and the way they see the world. A really poor person who can barely afford to have two square meals a day can consider this as a better world and the best time to be alive. On the other hand, a millionaire cannot be happy with the world and want to change it for good. If you want to be happy, it is really important to adjust the mirror of your brain and see the positive things going on in the world rather than focusing on the negatives.
How to Adjust Your Mind to See a Better World?
Well, as we have comprehended by now that to live a happy life, a person needs to adjust the mirror of this mind to see the better world. However, in the world full of hate and crime, it becomes really difficult not to focus on the negatives. Hence, here are some things that you can do to look at the better world and have a happy and healthy life:
- Be Positive – The first thing to do to change your worst world into a better world is to stay positive. Look at the positive side of everything. Stop focusing on the negatives.
- Always Find the Good in Bad Situations – Everybody faces bad situations. The best thing you can do to deal with it is to find the silver lining at the end of the cloud.
- Count Your Blessings – Everyone is blessed with something. So, to see your better world, count your blessings every day. There are some things that you have, and the other people do not. Consider them as assets and be thankful for them.
- Be Around People who Love you – Stop being around negative people. Hang out with the friends and family members who love and support you. This will make your world into a better world.
To conclude, I would just like to say that you can shape your mindset and make this world a better world for yourself by looking at the good things. You can obviously not ignore the bad that is happening in the world, but you make sure that you stay positive all throughout this.
