Move toward the Light

If you want to be as happy as possible in life it’s important to always move toward the light, which means that you think and behave in positive ways that don’t hurt you or others. A lot of people learn the hard way that they can’t behave negatively and feel great at the same time. For example: If you do things that hurt others, even if you become rich and influential, you will never be truly happy because you’re creating negative energy.

Make your life easier by enjoying your journey instead of worrying about impressing others or appearing invincible. Have fun and be happy rather than obsessing on doing things that set you up for failure.
