The main reason for becoming negative (suffering) is because of the countless problems that originate from our faulty internal outlook and this contributes to the fact that happiness never lasts for too long. Soured relationships between people, stress at work, financial worries, problems in raising one’s children, and many other factors that all cause unhappiness.
Because we become lazy, we tend to look for the causes of distress in external circumstances. We are often able to quickly find a culprit in the wrongdoing of others. In the long run, though, this strategy turns out to be a very tiring exercise because it leads to the fact that problems never change. It does not help to keep blaming others because this only results in a substitution of causes, whilst all along the true reason for being negative (suffering) can only be found in looking at your inner self.
When you learn to look inside you will discover the reasons for your suffering. It is the disposition of your mind. All your suffering is self-inflicted. You are the only person who thinks in your mind. You are the only person who perpetuates your continual ignorance of self. You are the only person that can make yourself happy.
You definitely have the ability to create our own reality. You can transform your reality anytime, using visualizations created by your own mind. Only a stable mind can create a stable and positive life.
