Life Positive Magazine that focuses on the positive side of life.
On the face of it, it seems absurd to talk of ‘having’ versus ‘being’ as alternatives. To have is a normal function of our life. To live we need to be, and to enjoy life we need to have things. We live in a world where possession marks out levels of living: not only must we have, we need to have more and more. The very basis of being is having. If you have nothing, you are nothing.
Yet, the masters of yore and the scriptures disagree. Ishopanishad begins and develops the idea that the whole universe is the abode of the Lord and whatever one enjoys is what He has renounced. ‘So, don’t run after earthly possessions.’ The Buddha preached the same idea. So did Jesus: ‘For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall save it. For what is man advantaged if he gained the whole world and lose himself, or cast away.’ Marx too equated luxury with poverty as a cardinal sin, setting the goal for humanity at ‘being much’, rather than ‘having much’.
Far from being an absurdity, the distinction between having and being is the most crucial problem of life.
Positive Thinking Magazine cover this aspect by showing see the quintessence of Western science and modernism—seeking the truth by extinguishing life, the guinea-pig approach to everything.
Our magazine tries to show how we need to change this approach and make us understand great minds the Buddha, Sankara, Ramakrishna to Mahatma Gandhi and the Dalai Lama who have understood the power of positive thinking. The magazine also covers all the inspirational people and events in the word today with the simple principle of nature and life, which is, what we focus on multiples.
