PostSubject: Ten Commandments for Peace of Mind   Tue Sep 23 2008, 16:46

>I have been asked to speak on the ways and means to attain peace of
>mind ,the most sought after objective/commodity of the human race since
>time immemorial. In the modern age, especially in North America, it would
>appear that most of us are in a state of perpetual restlessness despite
>enjoying good health care and basic economic security. Analyzing the causes
>of this restlessness has led me to identify ten possible solutions to
>attain peace of mind. I have called them "Ten commandments", because they
>need to be followed religiously if we are sincere to achieve perfect peace
>of mind. Here they are with brief explanations:
>1. Do Not Interfere In Others' Business Unless Asked.
>Most of us create our own problems by interfering too often in others'
>affairs. We do so because somehow we have convinced ourselves that our
>way is the best way, our logic is the perfect logic and those who do not
>conform to our thinking must be criticized and steered to the right
>direction, our direction. This thinking denies the existence of
>individuality and consequently the existence of God. God has created each
>one of us in a unique way. No two human beings can think or act in exactly
>the same way. All men or women act the way they do because God within them
>prompts them that way. There is God to look after everything. Why are you
>bothered? Mind your own business and you will keep your peace.

>2. Forgive And Forget.
>This is the most powerful aid to peace of mind. We often develop ill
>feelings inside our heart for the person who insults us or harms us.We
>nurture grievances. This in turn results in loss of sleep, development of
>stomach ulcers, and high blood pressure. This insult or injury was done
>once, but nourishing of grievance goes on forever by constantly
>remembering it. Get over this bad habit. Believe in the justice of God and
>the doctrine of Karma. Let Him judge the act of the one who insulted you.
>Life is too short to waste in such trifles. Forgive, Forget, and march on.
> Love flourishes in giving and forgiving.

>3. Do Not Crave For Recognition.
>This world is full of selfish people. They seldom praise anybody without
>selfish motives. They may praise you today because you are in power, but
>no sooner than you are powerless, they will forget your achievement
>and will start finding faults in you. Why do you wish to kill yourself
>instriving for their recognition? Their recognition is not worth the
>aggravation. Do your duties ethically and sincerely and leave the rest to

>4. Do Not Be Jealous.

>We all have experienced how jealousy can disturb our peace of mind. You
>know that you work harder than your colleagues in the office, but
>sometimes they get promotions; you do not. You started a business several
>years ago, but you are not as successful as your neighbor whose
>business is only one year old. There are several examples like these in
>everyday life.Should you be jealous? No. Remember everybody's life is
>shaped by his or her previous Karma, which has now become his destiny. If
>you are destined to be rich, nothing in the world can stop you. If you are
>not so destined, no one can help you either. Nothing will be gained by
>blaming others for your misfortune. Jealousy will not get you anywhere; it
>will only take away your peace of mind.

>5. Change Yourself According To The Environment.

>If you try to change the environment single-handedly, the chances are you
>will fail. Instead, change yourself to suit your environment. As you do
>this, even the environment, which has been unfriendly to you, will
>mysteriously change and seem congenial and harmonious.

>6. Endure What Cannot Be Cured.

>This is the best way to turn a disadvantage into an advantage. Every day
>we face numerous inconveniences, ailments, irritations, and accidents that
>are beyond our control. If we cannot control them or change them, we must
>learn to put up with these things. We must learn to endure them cheerfully
>thinking, "God wills it so, so be it." God's plan is beyond our
>comprehension. Believe in it and you will gain in terms of patience, inner
>strength and will power.

>7. Do Not Bite Off More Than You Can Chew.

>This maxim needs to be remembered constantly. We often tend to take more
>responsibilities than we are capable of carrying out. This is done to
>satisfy our ego. Know your limitations. Why take on additional loads that
>may create more worries? You cannot gain peace of mind by expanding your
>external activities. Reduce your material engagements and spend time in
>prayer, introspection and meditation. This will reduce those thoughts in
>your mind that make you restless. Uncluttered mind will produce greater
>peace of mind.

>8. Meditate Regularly.

>Meditation calms the mind and gets rid of disturbing thoughts. This is the
>highest state of peace of mind. Try and experience it yourself. If you
>meditate earnestly for half an hour everyday, your mind will tend
>to become peaceful during the remaining twenty-three and half-hours.
> Your mind will not be easily disturbed as it was before. You would
>benefit by gradually increasing the period of daily mediation. You may
>think that this will interfere with your daily work. On the contrary, this
>will increase your efficiency an you will be able to produce better
>results in less time.

>9. Never Leave The Mind Vacant.

>An empty mind is the devil's workshop. All evil actions start in the
>vacant mind. Keep your mind occupied in something positive, something
>worthwhile. Actively follow a hobby. Do something that holds your
>interest. You must decide what you value more: money or peace of mind.
>Your hobby, like social work or temple work, may not always earn you more
>money, but you will have a sense of fulfillment and achievement. Even
>when you are resting physically, occupy yourself in healthy reading or
>mental chanting of God's name.

>10. Do Not Procrastinate And Never Regret.
>Do not waste time in protracted wondering " Should I or shouldn't I?"
>Days, weeks, months, and years may be wasted in that futile mental
>debating. You can never plan enough because you can never anticipate all
>future happenings. Always remember, God has His own plan, too for you.
>Value you time and do the things that need to be done. It does not matter
>if you fail the first time. You can learn from your mistakes and succeed
>the next time. Sitting back and worrying will lead to nothing. Learn from
>your mistakes, but do not brood over the past. DO NOT REGRET. Whatever
>happened was destined to happen only that way. Take it as the Will of
> God. You do not have the power to alter the course of God's Will. Why
>cry over spilt milk?

Change yourself according to the environment true kasi hindi mo naman pwedeng mag compete sa environment mo lalo na sa mga nakapaligid sa iyo kaya join ka na lang and have a good time ... para may peace of mind ka parati..

#2 & #6 ang choice ko dito.

#2 Forgive and Forget, sarap ng feeling na ganyan for if you will just forgive without forgetting there will always be a tendency to look back and slap back e..srat na ulit ng away pag nagkataon.

#6 Endure what cant be cured, always convert your weaknesses into positive traits.
