Anjali - Focus on What's Right

Anjali was down with fever and a headache last couple of days. Change in weather etc etc. Yesterday she recovered quite a bit though she was still down.

'My fever is still there but my headache is gone,' she told me last evening.

'Oh, but why hasn't the headache gone?' I asked.

'Arre be happy that the fever has gone na,' she said in a disappointed tone. 'If you keep thinking of why the headache has not gone even the fever will come back'.

It's a universal principle. What you put your attention on grows. Focus on the good it grows, focus on the bad it grows.

I have spent much time on trying to imbibe this principle. How come she picked it up already?
