Several important lessons of life of the Buddha, that can change the lives
Buddha - means "awakened" or "enlightened." At the time, Siddhartha Gautama was a great spiritual director and founder of Buddhism in ancient India. In most Buddhist traditions, he is considered by the Supreme Buddha.
Siddhartha - the main figure in Buddhism, and information about his life, teachings, monastic principles after his death were systematized and immortalized by his followers. Today I want to discuss some important life lessons that are derived from the teachings of the Buddha.
10 lessons from the life of Buddha, which should read:
1. Start small - this is normal
Pitcher filled gradually, drop by drop. Each artist was once an amateur. We all start out small, do not neglect small. 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 the jug is full.
2. Thoughts are material
Our consciousness - that is all. You become what you think. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain it pursues. If a man speaks or acts with pure intentions, followed by happiness, like a shadow, he will never leave. To live correctly, you need to fill in the brain "right" thoughts. Right thinking will give anything you want; wrong thinking - an evil that eventually destroy you. All the offenses arise from the mind. If the mind will change, whether there will be misconduct?
Pent-up anger in itself - would be like to grab a hot coal with the intent to throw it in someone else, but it will burn you. When you release those who are imprisoned by unforgiveness, you free from this prison themselves. You will not be able to suppress the one without suppressing and myself too. Learn to forgive. Learn to forgive quickly.
4. Your actions matter
To grow, you have to act; to develop rapidly, we must act each day. Thank - for everyone, but know it will be 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 men as they are, but I believe in fate that falls on them unless they have been inactive».
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 other person's point of view. 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 - yours. It you can not take away nor angels nor demons, neither heaven nor hell. To conquer yourself, you need to win your mind. You have to control your thoughts. They should not rage like waves of the sea. You might think: "I can not control my thoughts. The idea came when she pleases. To which I say: you can not ban a bird fly 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 for it outside. Do not look outside of what can only be in your heart. Often we can look outside, only to distract themselves from the true reality. The truth is that harmony can only be found within ourselves. Harmony - is not a new job, not a new car or a new marriage; Harmony - is the world of the soul, 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, at least not dead. 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 that are worth to be grateful. Not all were able to wake up this morning; Yesterday, some fell asleep for the last time. There is always something for which he should thank. 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 happen because you did not know what to do; it happens because of the fact that you did not do what he knew. Do as you know. Not just to digest the information, and focus on thoughts about who you want to be as long as you will not have a burning desire to prove it.
