Three Buddhist truth, after which you "let go"

Sometimes it seems that life is unfair it is to us, here and now, and all attempts to fix things like running in circles. < Website said that right at this moment to stop, breathe and remember the three "noble truths" of Buddhism. They really change much.

Dukkha: Life - a painful thing, and it causes suffering h3> Many people call Buddhism a pessimistic and negative doctrine. All because of the famous dogma of the religion, "Life is suffering." But the problem is that the majority of Europeans is fundamentally misunderstand this saying. Buddhism actually tells you: «Life is not very affectionate and pleasant. So and figs with him »
The Buddhists say that we experience most of our suffering due to the fact that trying to avoid mental anguish or suppress difficult emotions. Our life is inevitably accompanied by a sense of loss, sadness, fatigue, boredom, anxiety. This constant companions of our lives. And if we try to avoid all of this by buying new gadgets, or using drugs, travel, immoderate and promiscuity, and so on. E., It only causes more frustration, disappointment, and other forms of pain.

< How to use it every day:

Do not buy into the idea that you something is not enough for the "complete buzz." Disease, aging, and death - it's all part of life. It is necessary to take it for what it is and stop thinking fantasies. Forget about the fact that the perfect life - a life supposedly easy and painless. This misconception has caused us to the fashion industry, entertainment and pharmaceuticals.

< The sooner you accept the imperfection of life, the less frustrating waiting for you

Anitya: Life - is a constant movement h3> Anita, or "impermanence", it means that life as we know it, is in constant motion. We can never gain access to the time from the past. And we can not repeat the past. We do not have, and future. It is illusory.

< Every morning you wake up a little bit different, not what we were yesterday. Our cells are distinguished on a physical level. In our mind - other thoughts. We have a slightly different body temperature. We breathe the air slightly different composition. Everything around us is changing, although we can not ignore. Always.

When we feel uncomfortable feeling of "inconstancy" as it may seem, it can soothe. < If we know that in the world nothing is permanent, including pain, we know that all the bad end sooner or later. But when we experience joy, then, of course, would like to see this state It has been with us always. Therefore, we are afraid of the idea. But the right to be different conclusion: time joy will soon pass, the most need to focus on it, to get the maximum pleasure from it
< If we accept the idea of ​​the impermanence of life and its values, it is incredibly liberating. In the West, 100 years after the Buddha expressed this idea, it repeated Heraclitus, saying: "You can not enter the same river twice." All you actually have -. Is currently

< How to use it every day:

Celebrate the changes. Agree that all the usual way or another ends. All the bad things that seem terrible today, will soon be over, and all the good will stay in your memory, if you learn to enjoy it. Your attitude is more important than shoes, the new iPhone will not make happy for more than a couple of days, and the joy of communicating with kids will be repeated every day.

anatma: You yourself are constantly changing h3> When the psychiatrist asks patients what they want to get on the end of therapy, the most popular answer: "I want to find themselves." Our culture has led us to what we all believe in us if there is any constant, the true "I". It is somewhere between our heart and liver or elsewhere in the brain? Who knows!

< Buddhism, however, comes from the fact that there is no fixed, stable «I» .
But the main thing - that we will not be the same if we do not make previous efforts. On the other hand, our life does not change, if we do not do every day that have to change it.

< How to use it every day:

Instead of focusing on the "search of itself", you can focus on how to create yourself in every moment. There is no permanent our "I", we only have at this point in time. And we can change at any moment. now em> always different from the last em>. If today you are depressed, it does not mean that it will be with you always. If you can not forgive the friends or relatives of some of their offense, this does not mean that you can not forgive them later.

Once we let go of our attachment to the idea of ​​a certain stable "I", we can relax and enjoy the moment. And tomorrow, because everything will be different. < In each new moment of life you are new.
