Sometimes it can be difficult to find hope when you examine the external world. Just look around us: there is news of horrific crimes committed against one another, terrorism, the dangerous effects of climate change, nuclear proliferation, and other scary things. All of these negative things can impact our ability to stick to the idea of hope.
Part of the reason why Unified Caring Association (UCA) was founded was to provide people with a way to deal with all of these negative thoughts and actions that seem to be all around us. Even if we turn off the news and social media feeds, there are personal challenges that we must all try to overcome.
The Hope Guide from Unified Caring Association was created in part to help individuals deflect these negative entities and build their own worlds within the world. Unified Caring Association reviews exercises and publications to see what is out there that can help people change the way they think of themselves and the external world around them.
Because, as the introduction of the guide says, we cannot usually change another or a situation. We can only change our way of looking at things and how we balance the four elements of the human body: mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Hope is the embodiment of this balance and the strength we need to pursue our dreams and live the life we want to live.
If you feel stuck or hopeless, the Hope Guide from UCA is a good and important read.
