What do you think is the most important thing in life? Health? Money? Love? Sex? I believe it’s none of those things. The most important thing in life is priceless, and cannot be bought. No matter whatever else you may have, without this, you cannot totally enjoy what you have. Give up? It’s peace of mind. Think about it. You can have both health and wealth, but if you are constantly upset or worried, because of issues with your partner, you won’t enjoy what you have. If you are in , you may take note of this.
If you’re unhappy in your relationship and are not sure what you should do, ask yourself this: Am I happier with this person in my life than I was without them? I believe the main reason for having anyone in your life, whether friend or lover, is because you’re life is better with that person in it.
Being with the right person can be heaven on earth. Being with the wrong person is hell on earth. The Dalai Lama once said, “We must first make peace within ourselves if we are to make peace in the world.” In having peace of mind, you’re contributing to the world by making it a more peaceful place, and that, is priceless.
Zen Buddhist Mind Training - How to Do It
We all share one common goal in life and that is to be happy and to experience inner peace and joy. However, you can't look outside yourself to find that happiness. Money, appearances, and social recognition do not truly make you happy, since the pursuit of money and fame can cause a great deal of anxiety and heartache. So you really need to look inside for the key to that inner peace. To do this, ask yourself the following five questions?
o What are my lifetime accomplishments?
Your answer may be:
I graduated college and started my own successful business. I married, raised 2 wonderful children, and provided for my family and spouse. I live in a beautiful home that I decorated myself with things that give me pleasure. I have many friends and family, who care about me and enjoy my company.
Review all that you have done, no matter how small, so you can feel good. You can then say with certainty, "I did accomplish many wonderful things in my life."
Look over your life and all that you have done and know that you will continue to do gratifying work. You can be at peace that you have contributed much to others and are valued by others as well. This peace gives you a sense of overwhelming pride and satisfaction. If, for any reason, you couldn't find an adequate answer to any of the questions, it's never too late to fulfill that void. Remember that you are entering a time in your life that can be extremely positive, meaningful and enriching inside and out.
The Secret About Peace of Mind That No One is Talking About
In a world where stress, strain, rush and restlessness abound, peace of mind is of paramount importance. It is a treasure that everyone desires, but only very few know how to gain it, and even fewer really do something to get it.
With all the advancement of science, no remedy has yet been found for lack of inner peace. Often, even when being in good financial condition and in good health, people have no peace of mind, which only proves that peace of mind does not depend on external conditions or on any scientific or technical progress. The solution has to come from within, not through external means.
It is not always possible to change external conditions, but you can certainly change your inner attitude and learn to stop allowing outside influences affect your moods and states of mind.
Peace of mind is not something to be found only on the Himalayas, by monks and hermits. It is attainable here and now, wherever you are, irrespective of your external circumstances, since it is an inner state, and is independent of circumstances and external conditions.
You can continue living your own life, without changing your external condition, continue with your job and relationships, and yet work on attaining inner peace. This is done in a gradual manner, by learning to change your mental attitude, developing inner strength and inner detachment, through meditation and through other means.
