Sunset Cloud Meditation Buddhism Mindfulne

There’s one sure fire medicine that cures all difficulty and opens the way for your greatest good. It permits you to sleep well at night, wake up refreshed and filled with enthusiasm. This medicine is abundantly available, has no side effects, can be obtained in large or small doses regularly. You will need no one to prescribe it and the more you take, the sweeter it is. The medicine is a good dose of gratitude, taken daily, at least three times a day.

For instance, if you’re having difficulty in your relationships, a strong dose of gratitude will help a lot. Depression and thankfulness cannot exist in the same mind at the exact same time. When you are continually aware of the good you are receiving, complaints, resentments and needs become a thing of the past.

Some might say that this world is like a banquet in which we’re guests. But, instead of thoroughly enjoying the feast, we just focus upon what is wrong – we become mad that the meal will not continue forever, criticize the cook, need one dish and refuse all others, or enjoy only desert.

Some refuse to eat the meal entirely and go to the corner to pout. Most have no idea who their host is, or why they have even been invited. They rarely think of offering thanks.

In order to live with joy and well-being, however, it is crucial to develop a grateful mind. Here are some simple steps to take. Each step is the best medicine.

Realize that we’ve been invited to this feast to develop a grateful mind. We must learn to partake of all we are offered, discover why we’ve been invited, and most importantly, offer thanks.

Step 2: Realize Every Person At The Banquet Is Precious

Each person at this banquet is valuable and has been invited for a reason. There is something unique that each guest must bring, including you. Find out what it is. Enjoy each individual fully.

If you don’t know what to be grateful for, the question to ask is – what am I focusing on right now? Where is my focus?
Are you focusing on all the problems and complaints, or are you conscious of the endless gifts you receive? By taking your attention off the negative aspects of the relationship, you take energy and power away from these complaints and be open to find the good that available. As you take charge of your focus you take charge of your life.

Step 3: Take Time To Notice And Appreciate What You Are Receiving

Take time to detect and fully appreciate what is before you. As we develop a mind that is aware of the gifts it’s receiving, the ability to give back grows naturally.

Step 4: Direct Communication

So many relationships flounder as a result of the feeling that individuals aren’t getting what they want. Oftentimes their partners have no clue what this is, or how to make them happy.

A amazing way to deal with this is to ask directly for what you want. Request without criticism or a hidden demand. Additionally it is crucial to have the ability to say no. Saying no isn’t rejection. At times, saying no to others, is a method of saying yes to yourself.

Step 5:

When you give to get something in return, this is not true giving. Some contribute to hold onto others, or to feel good about themselves. True giving asks nothing in return. It provides publicly, no strings attached.

When we give fully without needing anything in return, we get as much as we provide. Burden, bitterness and clinging drops away. There’s absolutely not any giver or receiver , just an open heart. Don’t let theĀ Raccoon Feces ruin your good time.
