OptimismOptimism keeps the seeker alive in God’s Heart. Something more: God also remains alive if there is optimism in the seeker’s heart. If there is optimism, there is hope. Optimism means the positive aspect of life. Optimism is always positive, positive, positive. If we have optimism, then God is alive inside our heart. And if God has optimism, which He has, then we are alive in God’s Heart. Optimism keeps both God and the seeker alive in each other’s hearts.
