Problems are placed before you so you can overcome them.
- A. Hussain


When life is kicking our butt and things seem out of control; and we are worn down by every day problems, how can belief in something beyond self, help us reach higher?

Healthy activity has long been known as a corrective to some of the problems of daily life. Simply by switching our attention from the problem to something more enjoyable or taking purposeful action targeted at solving the problem; many times our mood becomes lighter and more positive.

In the healthy personality, the mind is so constructed
That it can only keep one thing in it at a time.
-A. Hussain
