Part 1 of 2

Dear friends,

I have been away from this blog for more than a year. During this period most of my time has been used in search of positivism.  Now I am back and hope to continue writing for this blog.

Today, Hindu’s all over the world are celebrating Guru Purnima. This day is celebrated on a full moon day at the end of summer month of Ashadh. It normally falls in July every year.

This day is devoted to thank Guru, the teacher.

Guru Purnima is significant because Hindu’s learn the essence of life from their teachers and also pay due respect to them.

Nature has given human beings capacity to evolve beyond all limitations provided he is willing to strive. And Guru is one who helps you lead to the path of enlightenment. This day has special significance as it greatly helps opening of possibilities for human beings to evolve consciously.

Because Hindu’s have a tradition of giving paramount importance to their spiritual as well as academic teachers, they equate guru  with the God and are consider him as a link between a person and the Almighty.

I consider Almighty God as my Guru and my mentor. Right from this morning I was seeking His blessing and was looking forward for His help learning the art of promoting positivism and establishing happiness and peace in this world for which I have been striving hard and working for several years.  Today almost at the end of the day, He sent me Cosmic Vision. In a flash He filled my mind with instructions. It seems on this auspicious day, I got this knowledge from the Adi Guru, the very first Guru of this world.

And thus the ‘Art of Positive Consciousness’ is evolved today.

To begin with He has given me a five point program to be established in this world. This is for bringing happiness and peace in lives of people at large.

Following instructions are received by me. These must be practiced by every person living on this planet.

  1. Be Grateful.
  2. Practice Forgiveness.
  3. Practice Caring and Sharing.
  4. Love everyone.
  5. Keep Smiling and spreading Happiness.



Gratefulness has been considered as a master key that has capability to open your door of good health, more wealth, happiness, success, peace and several other positive circumstances in your life.

All religions of this world including Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Sikhism and Zoroastrianism etc. have strongly advocated gratefulness for their followers.

It is suggested to be thankful to everyone and everything that has made a positive difference in your life, directly and indirectly.

Be thankful to the Almighty God, Super power, nature or whom you believe in. Be thankful that you are living here in this world and are in good condition. Be thankful for your physical and mental health, good family, education and skills, job and financial security, decent life, your assets, your belongings and for many gifts of life. Be thankful that you are leading far better life as compared to billions others living on this planet.

Be thankful to your parents and other family members, your relatives, friends, colleagues. Extend your thankfulness to your employer, customers, vendors, coworkers and all those they are helping you for your livelihood.

Be grateful to each and everyone who is making your life comfortable and helping you. They can be a driver, servant, attendant, maid, nanny, domestic helps etc.  You should learn to be thankful to the ones, who are supplying you grocery, food items and household goods, electricity, water, gas, telephony, mobile services, internet providers, media and many more.

Be thankful to the governments at various levels, various government and non government agencies, police, armed forces and several others who are working day in and day out for your welfare and comfort.

You must also be grateful for countless number of people who are serving you, directly and indirectly. They include farmers, producers, transporters, agents and many more spread all over the world. Governments and people of various countries also deserve your thankfulness.

In fact, you must develop a habit of exhibiting gratefulness to entire mankind, to your pets, to animals that are providing you milk and other products. Be thankful to all those animals which are sacrificing their lives and providing you food and subsequently health.

You can also add to your list, the Sun, the Moon, the Earth, Nature, plants for giving you life.

In addition, you must also learn to be thankful for various negative situations in your life including difficulties, problems, financial constrains, failure in life, ill health and to those they have betrayed you and troubled you. These situations help you in life in various ways.

The list is endless. You can explore many more avenues of thankfulness.

Every moment of your life should be filled with gratefulness.

You can repeat following affirmation for exhibiting your gratefulness. Repeat the same as many time as it is convenient.

“From the deep of my heart and soul, I am grateful to everyone and everything for making my life beautiful.”



Like gratefulness, habit of forgiveness has been at the core of all those religions of this world. Forgiveness is considered one of the most courageous acts of human nature.

There are different aspects of forgiveness.

1.       Forgive the self for all your negative and detrimental actions against mankind, animal and plant kingdoms and against nature. But, you must promise yourself for never ever repeating such acts in your life again that disturbs harmony of this universe.

2.       Forgiving all others for their misdeeds and negative actions against you and forget those acts forever.

3.       Seek forgiveness from everyone else by accepting your past mistakes and misdeeds and look for atonement.  And at the same time promise the self for never repeating those misdeeds again in your lifetime. Also seek forgiveness from the God, Super power, nature and all those unseen powers who are making your life possible.

From the moment of following this principle of forgiveness, start practicing purity of thoughts.

Forgiveness is one of the finest gifts; you are giving to you and to this world. Keep on adhering to this system and never deviate from this path.

Repeat following affirmation five times a day for promoting habit of forgiveness.

“I lovingly forgive and forget the self and everyone else who has ever offended, hurt me or worked against my interest. I also seek forgiveness from everyone and everything for all my misdeeds. I promise not to repeat again my negative actions.”
