How to Be Happy and Healthy
A disciple once asked Lord Buddha, "After meditating for years, I have not been able to gain anything." Then Lord Buddha asked, "Did you lose anything?" The disciple said, "Yes, I lost my anger, desires, expectations and ego." Buddha smiled and said, "That is your gain by meditating."
To be happy, one must learn to let go the following:
â€¢ One should let go of desires. by killing them by focused concentration of the mind on the desires.
â€¢ Let go of expectations.
â€¢ Let go of your ego. One should let go of his or her ego but also remember never to hurt somebodyâ€™s ego. Hurting somebodyâ€™s ego in terms of allegations of sexual misconduct, financial corruption or abusing oneâ€™s caste is never forgotten and carries serious implications.
â€¢ Let go of your inaction. One should learn to live in the present. One should never do that and willfully divert his or her mind towards action.
â€¢ Let go of your attachments. Let go of your attachments to your close relatives and the worldly desires.
â€¢ Let go of your habit of criticizing, complaining and condemning people. One should always practice non-violent communication and speak which is truth, necessary and kind. One should not criticize, condemn or complain about people, situation and events.
â€¢ Most of us often condemn people without knowing their capabilities and label them as unmatchable to us. One should also let go of the habit of gossiping as it is a form of violent communication.
â€¢ Let go of your habit of blaming others: One should learn to take the responsibilities and people believe in team work. Good leader is the one who learns to be responsible in life.
â€¢ Let go of your need to be always right: It is a form of ego. Remember, in arguments either you can win arguments or relationships. Always try to win relationship and not arguments.
â€¢ Let go of your need to control situations, events and people: Learn to accept people as they are. The world is won by those who let this habit go.
â€¢ Let go of your habit and the need to impress others: This is also a type of ego where we always seek appreciation.
â€¢ Give up your belief that you cannot do it:
â€¢ Give up your resistance to change: Remember change is the only constant which will happen and always welcome it.
â€¢ Let go of your fear and all negative thoughts: Remember, the mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. It becomes very destructive if used badly.
â€¢ Let go of your habit of giving excuses.
Let go of always being in the past.
