10 life lessons from Buddha

13 Oct

Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “Each artist was once an amateur”

We all start small, do not neglect small. If you are consistent and patient, you will succeed! No one can succeed in one night: Success comes to those who are willing to start small and work hard until the jar is full.

2. Thoughts are material

All what we are – the result of what we think about ourselves. If a man speaks or acts with bad thoughts, following him pain. If a man speaks or acts with pure intentions, followed by happiness, which, like a shadow, will never leave. ”
Buddha said, “Our consciousness – that is all. You become what you think. ”

Dzheims Allen said: “The man – a brain.”

To live properly, you must fill your mind “right” thoughts.

Your thinking determines actions, your actions determine the outcome. Right thinking will give you name it, wrong thinking – an evil which in the end will destroy you.

If you change your mind, and you change your life. Buddha said:

“All the offenses arise from the mind. If the mind is changed, it will remain offenses? ”

3. Forgive

Restrain anger in himself, is like to grab a hot coal with the intent to give it to someone else, it will burn you.

When you release those imprisoned in the prison of unforgiveness, you free yourself from the prison itself. You can not suppress anyone, not suppressing, and yourself, too. Learn to forgive. Learn to forgive quickly.

4. Your actions have meaning

No matter how many commandments you may have read, no matter how much you do not say that they will be mean if you do not follow them?

They say, “The words are worthless,” and it is. To advance, you must act; to develop rapidly, we must act every day. Glory will fall on your head!

Kudos to everyone, but to know it can only those who are constantly active.

The proverb says, “God gives every bird a worm, but does not throw it into the nest.”

Buddha said, “I do not believe in fate that falls on people when they do, but I do believe in fate that falls on them, if they do nothing.”

5. Try to understand

Arguing with this we feel anger, we have ceased to fight for the truth, we began to fight for themselves.

Stephen Covey: “First, try to understand, and only then try to understand you.”

It is easy to say and hard to do, and you should make every effort to understand the perspective of the “other” person. When you feel that you are overwhelmed by anger, destroy it. Listen to others, understand their point of view, and you will have peace of mind. More focus on how to be happy than to be right.

6. Defeat yourself

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. Her you can not take neither angels nor demons, neither heaven nor hell

Whoever wins himself is stronger than any ruler. To win yourself, you need to win your mind. You have to control your thoughts. They should not rage, like sea waves.

You may think, “I can not control my thoughts. The idea came when she wants. “To which I answer: you can not stop a bird flying over you, but surely you can stop her build a nest on your head.

Banish the thought that do not meet the principles of life, for which you want to live.

Buddha said, “is not an enemy or foe, namely the human mind luring him to the curve track.”

7. Live in harmony

Harmony comes from within. Do not look for it outside

Do not look outside of what can only be in your heart. Often we can look outside, just to distract themselves from the true reality. The truth is, that harmony can only be found within.

Harmony – this is not a new job, not a new car or a new marriage … harmony – is a new opportunity and they begin with you.

8. Be thankful

Let us stand and say thank you for the fact that if we did not learn a lot, at least we learned a little, and if we did not learn a little, at least we did not get sick, and if we got sick, at least not dead. So be grateful.

There is always something that is worth thanking. Do not be so pessimistic about that for a moment, even at the time of argument, you are not able to recognize thousands of things for which there is to be grateful. Not all were able to wake up this morning, yesterday some have fallen asleep for the last time.

There is always something for which he should thank, understand it and give thanks. A grateful heart will make you great!

9. Be true to what you know

The main offense – not to be true to what you know for sure

We know a lot, but do not always do what we know.

If you fail, it will not be because you did not know what to do, it will happen because you have not done what they knew.

Do what you know.

Not just to assimilate information, and focus on thoughts about who you want to be, unless you have a burning desire will prove it.

10. Travel

It is better to travel than to arrive at the

Life – a journey!

I am happy, happy and satisfied with the present. I can visit the best places to try the best wines, but I’m traveling.

Do not put off your happiness indefinitely, trying to reach the goal that you think will make you happy.
