Don't worry,Be happy!

“When you reach an advanced age and look back over your lifetime, it can seem to have had a consistent order and plan, as though composed by some novelist. Events that when they occurred had seemed accidental and of little moment turn out to have been indispensable factors in the composition of a consistent plot…The whole thing gears together like one big symphony!”
-Arthur Schopenhauer

Is your life a daily response to random events with no common theme OR are you part of a beautifully constructed plot? Sometimes we all get too closely connected to the day-to-day bump and grind of life. It's so important to occasionally step back, gain perspective, and dive into the mystery. Here are some techniques and ideas to inspire the plunge:
  1. Recognize that whether by master stroke or pure chance, there is great intelligence in the universe. Fact: A single human cell measuring 1/1,000 of an inch across contains instructions within its DNA that would fill 1,000 books of 600 pages each (Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now)
  2. Minimize resistance. “Nothing on earth can overcome an absolutely non-resistant person.” -- Florence Shinn
  3. Spend time in nature. “Genius learns from nature.” -- Oscar Wilde
  4. Be patient with your struggles and challenges. “Infinite patience yields immediate results.” -- Wayne Dyer
  5. Free the mind from daily routines. “Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free the mind.” -- Bob Marley
  6. Smile…everything is evolving just as it should. “Sometimes joy is the source of your smile but sometimes a smile is the source of your joy.” -- Thich Nhat Hanh
This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.

Muchas veces tu vivencia depende de cómo la cuentes, no? o de cómo la mires, de cómo la enfrentes. Me gusta tu religión, la mia se le parece mucho.

Un saludo
