16 simple rules to inner well being

Today I had passed onto me some well meaning axioms that were supposedly written by Buddha. I personally found them enlightening and thought I would share.

  1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk
  2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson
  3. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck
  4. Learn the rules, so you know how to break them properly
  5. Don’t let a little dispute ruin a great relationship
  6. When you make a mistake take immediate steps to correct it
  7. Spend some time alone everyday
  8. Open your arms to change but don’t let  go of your values
  9. Remember that silence sometimes is the best answer
  10. Live a good and honorable life that way when you are older you can enjoy it a second time
  11. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life
  12. In disagreements with love ones, only focus on the correct situation , don’t bring up the past
  13. Share your knowledge, its a great way to achieve immortality
  14. Be gentle with the earth
  15. Once a year go somewhere you have never been before
  16. Follow the 3 R’s
  • Respect for self
  • Respect for others
  • Responsibility for all actions

        In life we are merely passengers, so its best not to “back seat” drive. We are architects of our lives and great plans require great work. In many great projects there will be disappointment, discouragement and dissolution. These are nothing but tests and traps. True character is found in times of crisis. Focus on what lies ahead, stick to your true beliefs and values; and you will forge a noble reward. Remember that on the horizon of every dark  and cold winter, lies the promise of a sunny and warm summer.

          We so often forget that the simple matters of life make the greatest impact, and these 16 simple rules to inner well being serve as a reminder.
          If we seek to maintain balance within ourselves, that balance becomes reflected in our relationships with others, and the value of inner well being becomes reflected in all our daily tasks and interactions with others.
          There is a simple physiological maxim – it takes less energy to smile and let out positive energy than maintain anger and disharmony.
          It is great to learn that like minded individuals are drawing together.
          Keep up the good work!
