Eight Buddha lessons that need your soul now
The teaching of the great spiritual teacher, who needs no special introduction. Translated "Buddha" - means "awakened" or "enlightened".
In his teaching, there is nothing that would contradict the fundamentals of internal harmony of any other course, religious or philosophical. These lessons are universal and eternal, and get to know them interesting for the mind and good for the soul.
urges readers to plunge into the world of Buddhist philosophy.
1. Start small - this is normal. Jug filled slowly, drop by drop. Each artist was once an amateur. If you are consistent and patient, you will succeed. No one can succeed in just one night: success comes to those who are willing to start small and work hard until it fills the jug.
2. Thoughts are material. Our consciousness - that is all. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain following him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure intention, happiness follows him. To live correctly, you need to fill in the brain "right" thoughts. Right thinking will provide everything you want; wrong thinking - an evil that eventually destroy you.
3. Forgive. Restrain anger in itself - would be like to grab a hot coal with the intention of throwing it in someone else, but it will burn you. When you release those who are imprisoned in the prison of unforgiveness, you free from this prison themselves. You can not suppress anyone, not suppressing, and myself too. Learn to forgive. Learn to forgive quickly.
4. Your actions matter. To develop, you have to act; to develop rapidly, we must act every day. The proverb says: "God gives every bird a worm, but does not throw it into the nest." Buddha said: "I do not believe in a fate that falls on men as they are, but I believe in fate that falls on them, if they do nothing." 5. Try to understand. We have ceased to fight for the truth, we began to fight only for themselves. First, try to understand, and only then try to understand you. You should make every effort to understand the point of view of another person. 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. Such a victory will not take neither angels nor demons, neither heaven nor hell. To win yourself, you need to control your thoughts. They should not rage like waves of the sea. You might think: "I can not control my thoughts. The thought comes when she wants. To which I say: you can not stop the birds flying over you, but surely you can prevent it to build a nest on your head. "
7. Live in harmony. Harmony comes from within. Do not look outside of what can only be in your heart. The truth is that harmony can only be found within ourselves. Harmony - this is not a new job, not a new car or a new marriage; Harmony - a peace of mind, and it starts with you.
8. Be grateful. Let us stand and give thanks for the fact that if we do not learn much, at least, did not spend a lot of time, and if they have lost time, then at least do not get sick, but if ill, or at least not killed. There is always something for which he should thank. Do not be so pessimistic, that for a moment, even at the time of the quarrel, you will not be able to realize at least ten things for which should be thankful. 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.
