Ups and downs in life are a part of the human existence and cannot be avoided. The question is, are we going to lose our peace of mind and become unstable as we face these highs and lows on the roadway of life? Or is there another way?
Many feel life is passing by too quickly. We move from one season to the next and wonder where time went. Days, months, and years fly by at tremendous speed and we can’t seem to get anything we want done. Is there any way to use time-management for goal setting?
Meditation requires concentration. It means sitting with our body still, just as athletes have to position their body in such a way that they can connect with the ball. We have to connect with the inner ball, so our body must remain still.
Great philosophers have said, “Know thyself.” This mandate should be the first thing we pursue as we come into this world. Our foremost purpose should be to discover who we are and what our purpose in life is. Are we a chicken or are we an eagle that can soar up in the sky as the king of the birds?
People the world over have tried to crack the code to long lasting and harmonious relationships. Yet, if we know where to look, harmonious relationships are not far from our reach. As social beings living in this world, we continually seek harmonious relationships with those around us – our family, our loved ones, friends, co-workers and neighbors.
There are times in life when despite our best efforts, we are disappointed with the results, or when our efforts are underappreciated by those we are looking to serve or help. When this happens, we tend to become selective in our efforts basing our performance on the situation or the audience.
