It’s What I Do

I went to my week-long silent retreat thinking what I would like to get from it. I framed it as a time of spiritual detox and rehab. I knew it was going to be demanding, so I renewed my commitment to apply myself wholeheartedly in order to get the most out of it. And then it came to me that, in the final analysis, it didn’t matter so much what I thought I would do, or what I intended to do, or what I said I was going to do; what really mattered is what I actually did!

Actions really speak louder than words.

What was true for my retreat is also true for life. Good intentions that are not translated into action have no impact in enhancing the quality of life, one’s own and the lives of all other sentient beings. So, let us remember that every moment of awareness and clarity, of re-commitment to noble goals, and of right action is important.

May we have the strength to live mindfully. May we choose to be happy and bring happiness to others. May happiness be the chief-counselor for our decisions.

Since gratefulness is the key that opens the gates to the kingdom of happiness, it is always appropriate to express gratitude. I realize how fortunate and blessed I am. How many people in the world have a chance to attend a silent retreat? How many people in the world have a chance to take a long period of time off, go to a beautiful, secluded, and protected place where they are taken good care of, in order to work on their personal development? I am fortunate and blessed, and I am grateful.

The Importance of Praise – 3

Be who you needed when you were younger. Be the parent you needed when you were a child. Be the teacher you needed when you were a student. Be the employer you dreamed of having when you were an employee.

Treat others as they like to be treated, so they will treat you as you like to be treated. Treat them with love, patience and generosity, and then receive back all that you have given.

Don’t think that by limiting the love you give, by being tough,  by teaching your children to be tough, you are preparing them for the world; the only thing you are doing is perpetuating a world of despicable human beings. If you are constantly criticizing your children, putting them down, squashing their self-esteem, not giving them abundant and unconditional love, you are creating parents, bosses, teachers and coaches who will be perpetuating the world you don’t want to live in, the world you don’t want your children to live in. Do you want a better world? Then be a better parent. Give love.

If you want to leave a better world for your children, then leave better children for the world.

Shower your children with love. Flood them with love. Treat your children as they should be treated, with love and respect, so when they grow up and have their own children, they will do the same. Treat your children as they should be treated, with love and respect, so when they grow up and you need them, they will return the treatment, and treat you with love and respect too. We receive what we give. It’s as simple as that. So, be who you needed when you were younger.
