Know Your Own Truth And Live By It !

To follow someone else's truth is a trap. The best strategy is to know your own truth, face it and live by it. Others may inspire, guide, give you directions, but ultimately you have to cut your own way through the jungle. You could always be asking others where North is, and they will tell you. Someone will say North is this way and someone else that North is that other way - and both would have been sincere. But you alone have to find your true North.

Think Positively About The Present !

The one who is simple is the one who is free from pain. When I am simple I am able to be free from pain or hurt even in adverse situations. I am able to take benefit from the wealth of experiences accumulated over the past without feeling the pain. With simplicity I know that I need to remember the past only to the extent that I have to learn from it. When something goes wrong and I find myself thinking about it again and again, I need to remind myself that all the past experiences are only for me to learn from them. The past is finished and I don't have to undergo the sorrow again thinking about the past repeatedly.

Get Detached And Bring Benefit To All !

Greatness is visible in simplicity. The simplicity within me brings benefit to many. Simplicity doesn't mean I have to give up all I have, but it only means that I give up the attraction and attachment to whatever I am using. With simplicity my lifestyle takes on an easiness that in itself can be a healing source to those around. I need to make the practice of being detached even while using everything. I need not give up anything, but while using everything, I need to remember that what I have is for the use of everyone and not to get dependent on it.
When I am detached in this way I will be able to bring benefit to all around me.

Be Enthusiastic And Create Enthusiasm In Others !

The one who is enthusiastic makes others enthusiastic too. The one who has this one speciality of enthusiasm, will be instrumental in bringing many other specialities. The words of such a person will fill others with courage and fill with hope, the ones who are hopeless.When we find someone who is not able to maintain his enthusiasm, it is good to remind ourselves that we are responsible for creating enthusiasm in others. When we take up responsibility in this way we will be able to finish laziness and carelessness within us and we will be enthusiastic too.

Learn To Be Independent And Happy !

The root of suffering is attachment. You have created a space in your mind that holds a person or object as a part of you. When that person or object is criticized, neglected or not there with you, you feel pain in your mind and you experience a sense of loss. If you want to remain happy at all times, you must learn to love and appreciate while remaining independent.
