Is Life A Struggle?

A post on Gurushabad:

"Make today a breeze not a battle.Never fight. Nothing is worth fighting for. Wisdom never fights, it waits patiently, speaks positively, releases easily, sees benefit in everything and envisions a future of abundance...
knowing that all needs will be met at the right moment, in the right way.
If we think life is a struggle we will always be struggling,
If we think life is a breeze, our attitudes and actions will convey lightness and easiness.
And that's what attracts everything we need, and much more.
Let us make today a breeze not a battle."
(source: internet)


If we think life is a struggle we will always be struggling. That one sentence is powerful. When I struggle I get nervous and then I get agitated and then I get disappointed in myself that I am getting like that. Gads. On and on. Round and round goes the struggle wheel.

Struggling is a violent effort, not necessarily a valiant effort. Facing constant resistance and conflict. So much energy is needed to perpetuate the cycle of struggle.

Yes, struggling is such an extreme use of energy. Seeing things as an opportunity rather than a struggle shifts the quality of work.

Yep, I think that's right. I have a similar sort of mantra that I try to remember on a daily basis - I'm as happy as I make up my mind to be.

Nothing is worth fighting for. Not sure about that. But, the rest, I'm all in.

We get what we expect, so if at all possible, it's better to expect good things in life (and to be grateful when they occur.)
