We are all connected

1010186_642394789123246_330224232_nWe are all connected. When you touch one thing, you are touching everything. Whatever we do has an effect on others. Therefore, we must learn to live mindfully to touch the peace inside each of us.
Peace in the world starts with peace in oneself. If everyone lives mindfully, everyone will be more healthy, feel more fulfilled in their daily lives and there will be more peace. This collective mindfulness can bring positive change to our families, organizations, communities, nations and future generation.

TO BE FRIENDLY WITH ONE’S MIND

538568_10150915533243768_907993390_nTO BE FRIENDLY WITH ONE’S MIND IS ONE OF THE GREATEST STEPS IN SELF-TRANSFORMATION. True silence is when you don’t cultivate it, but on the contrary, you start looking into your anguish, anxiety, tensions, thoughts, all of your mad mind… When you look into it deeply, perceptively, sympathetically, lovable, because you want to understand. It is your mind and you want to understand it, because without understanding it you will never be wise, without understanding it you will never become known to yourself; there is no possibility of self-knowledge. And without self-knowledge, all other kinds of knowledge are just futile. So try to understand your mind. Don’t condemn it, don’t repress it. Give it full play… Allow it. Bring all that is thrown into the basement back into the consciousness. Allow everything to come to the surface so you can see, watch, observe, analyze, look into, with no prejudice, with no antagonism.
