We live in a very competitive world surrounded by diversified characters. Characteristics of our environment impact what we are today.

Our Life’s epitome is the path for our children and symbol of our generation. As the development in every field is progressing, the quality of character is deteriorating. Humans are getting into an unnecessary and unforeseen stress which is unfair. When we make up our minds, we can manage everything because our mind and soul are adjustable.

Nothing is complex if the correct logic is applied. No soul is born culprit, the circumstances and the kind of stigma faced by each individual would explain the behaviour of the person. Each person’s mentality has a direct impact on society as a whole. Unknowingly we have created our own competitions. Healthy competition leads to growth and unhealthy competition leads to unpleasant environs. Aim was to build healthy competitions and bring harmony, but competitions are deviating from the aspect they were started to demon’s mode and now seven in ten are moving towards an environmental discolouration. This society is changing its colour every minute. We are feeding the same in our children’s mind. Prediction says the result would get worse in future generations.

We have already reached the stage where we have invited unwanted guests to be seated in our plain hearts and turned into our enemies. Hatred, anger, selfishness, jealousy and false ego are five demons we should stay away from.

Soul is the first inhibitor to give prompts about your thought process, keep yourself open for good thoughts. The Evil within us is our greatest enemy. When unconquered, it leads us to an inappropriate path. The negative characteristics which we possess due to influences are the stress creating connotations.

Each iniquitous thought rolls over our notions reflects badly on our life as well.

Every situation has a rhythm; Get hold of it to tune our life’s symbolism. Uncontrollable emotions may route us to mental illness. In normal terms it is called STRESS. We are the creators and we are the destroyers of stress. Nothing can surpass our wishful gaits. It’s totally in our control whether to hold stress or live peaceful life. Stressful life is deteriorating our standard of living. The life’s ecstasy is not enjoyed in an implicit way but is heading to poke mental illness.

Selfishness - right from ancient times to today’s world, selfishness by self-centered people ruin relationships and trust. It is the first and deadliest enemy of ours and ends up degrading the quality of life. Increasing each day, it is affecting the society as a whole, indirectly. Moulding our mindsets to overcome self-obsession is the way to get rid of selfishness.

Jealousy- You earn anything for the efforts you’ve put in. When one compares that with other’s growth, we end up filling our life with the poison of jealousy and as a result, we can never get satisfied with our lives. Never compare your life with others. Compare your productivity to that of yesterday and today. Be determined not to get into the clutches of jealousies.

Complexes - inferiority and superiority complexes affect our mind and soul so badly that eventually, it drowns us in to psychological pain. Inferiority eats up our confidence and doesn’t allow us to come out of the situation. Entering into it is easy but it’s hard to come out of this complex. These days we see many rehab centres. Depression is very common these days, due to stress. People, who can’t handle it, may end up taking extreme steps. Superiority complex is another concern where people think highly of themselves, wherein their ego affects them, they find it difficult to manage the circumstances. This problem will lead to anger and wild behaviour.

The comforted soul can lessen the complexity in a simpler way because of the thinking ability. Feed your mind with positive thoughts and always look for positivity in everything. Create positive vibes for your life. Break free from the unwanted loops of negative thoughts by practising meditation. Keep your body and mind fit by being sanguine. Yoga and mental exercises can help to keep away from mental illness. Conquer your enemies, be strong. Never allow any bad or negative thoughts absorb you. Our life is led amongst varieties of people. We have huge chances of getting influenced by the atmosphere. Be yourself in all situations.

Observe everything. Absorb essential things to design your own joy. Keep your thoughts positive and eventually, you will absorb good from everything. Vicinity gives an instinct vividness to absorb or repel from the contexts. Life is all about how you understand the waves of emotions. Repel from negative thoughts; get attracted to positive thoughts. And ultimately create your own territory of positive vibes. Lessen your enemies with Systematic and disciplined life.

Love your life wholeheartedly. Live your life to the fullest because Life is a replica of you. There would be twists and turns. Be ready to face every situation. Some are very crazy, the more keenly we observe, the more complex the knots seems, and the greater the number of riddles that perplexes us. In the Puranas, our epics, it is said that demons were creating lots of ruckus to the people. They were very gigantic with unimpressive looks but in today’s world demons are within ourselves creating mental imbalances. Conquering the life’s agonies in an appropriate way needs positive approach towards life. Tuning positivity is what rehab centres do. Try to induce as much positive power into your mind and try not to get into mental sickness. Build a strong mind; avoid falling in the pits of ego, selfishness and unkind thoughts.

As we say in Sanskrit “Sarve jana sukhino bhavantu” which means “may all human beings lead happy lives and may they hold good thoughts, carry good words, build lovely relationships with self and others, emit positive emotions and spread positivity for wonderful lifestyles, bring in peace to the society as a whole.
