From last few week , I started research on what is peaceful life and on mindful relaxation and I came to know this that the Buddist monks seems so peaceful all the time.This thing stuck in my mind and I searched about Buddist monks . The reason is actually that they follow certain rules of living we don’t.
Today, I am going to share some of the important and basic rules which might seems difficult but they makes our life easy.
Their whole philosophy evolves around the idea of reducing suffer.
The philosophy seem alien to me first nearly impossible and may be to you too , but the truth is it leads to higher happiness 😌
These rules will benefit you for the rest of your life.
When you can develop a selfless attitude, you focus less on personal problems. You get less emotional about small things and your mind becomes calmer.
Actually recognizing that being more selfless towards other brings deeper happiness and is one of the pillars of spiritual life.
When we help others we find a deeper satisfaction
Scientifically speaking, we know that meditation changes the brain. Not only that, but it changes our nature
It is an old saying that meditation was considered asStepping stone for enlightenment
Obviously, you probably don’t have the time to meditate for hours every day… But by doing just 30 minutes on a daily basis will transform your life. During online classes and being busy with other stuff, I also couldn’t find enough time to meditate but when I started to do in small chunks like from 20 to 30 minutes, daily I start my day with fresh and with more relaxed mind
Follow the wise
Listen to seniors and those with more experience
This is the path of wise.
If you look around, there are always insightful people to learn from. Older people have more experience which means they can offer countless life lessons
Accept Mindfulness As A Way Of Life
It’s naturally very easy to judge others. After all, it’s part of our make up to look at others and size them up. It’s our primitive brain analyzing threats and assessing the world around us. But that’s not always helpful, it sometimes teaches us to look at someone in the wrong way.
What’s wonderful about mindfulness is that its judgment-free The main goal is to take in everything that someone is saying without evaluating it.
Every morning we wake up and look in the mirror.
We identify that person as ‘us’, we grow attached to this perception with our body and personality when it changes with disease, old age, or accident, we suffer .
This is true of our friends and family as well
Everything changes, it’s the fundamental law of the universe
Live in the Moment
Our minds do this funny thing where they try and live in the past or in the future rehearsing old conversations over and over again but this just isn’t reality. Life doesn’t happen between your ears it happens in the NOW.
We should try to live each and every second moment of our life. Whatever you are doing, do it as it is your last. For example when someone give you an apple and allow you to eat , you will eat it within seconds, but when someone say it’s last apple in the world , you will eat with full joy .Sound funny right, but think about it. Practice one by one, it helped me alot and hope it will help you too
