10 Principles for peace of mind


Life is long and full of challenges. Most of those challenges are internal, and depends on how WE choose to accept and interpert them. Our lives can go on very different paths, depending on what we do and how we look at what happens to us along the way. Here are 10 points of advice that if followed, will guarantee a better life, one that brings with it true peace of mind.

  1. Do Not Interfere In Others’ Business Unless Asked

Most of us create our own problems by interfering too often in others’ affairs. We do so because somehow we have convinced ourselves that our way is the best way, our logic is the perfect logic and those who do not conform to our thinking must be criticized and steered in the right direction, our direction. No two human beings can think or act in exactly the same way. Mind your own business and you will keep your peace.

  1. Forgive And Forget

This is the most powerful aid when it comes peace of mind. We often develop ill feelings inside our heart for the person who insults us or harms us. We nurture grievances. This in turn results in loss of sleep, development of stomach ulcers, and high blood pressure. This insult or injury was done once, but nourishing of grievance goes on forever by constantly remembering it. Get over this bad habit. Life is too short to waste on such trifles. Forgive, forget, and march on. Love flourishes with giving and forgiving.

  1. Do Not Crave Recognition

This world is full of selfish people. They seldom praise anybody without selfish motives. They may praise you today because you are in power, but as soon as you are powerless, they will forget your achievement and will start finding faults in you. Their recognition is not worth the aggravation. Do your duties ethically and sincerely.

  1. Do Not succumb to envy and jealousy

We all have experienced how envy can disturb our peace of mind. You know that you work harder than your colleagues at the office, but sometimes they get promotions; you do not. You started a business several years ago, but you are not as successful as your neighbor whose business is only one year old. There are several examples like these in everyday life. Should you envy?

No. Remember everybody’s life is shaped by his/her destiny, which has now become his/her reality. Nothing will be gained by blaming others for your misfortune. Jealousy will not get you anywhere, it will only take away your peace of mind.

  1. Change Yourself According To The Environment

If you try to change the environment single-handedly, chances are you will fail. Instead, change yourself to suit your environment. As you do this, even the environment, which has been unfriendly to you, will mysteriously change and seem more congenial and harmonious with your goals.

  1. Endure What Cannot Be Cured

This is the best way to turn a disadvantage into an advantage. Every day we face numerous inconveniences, ailments, irritations, and accidents that are beyond our control. If we cannot control them or change them, we must learn to put up with these things. We must learn to endure them cheerfully. Believe in yourself and you will gain in terms of patience, inner strength and will power.

  1. Do Not Bite Off More Than You Can Chew

This maxim needs to be remembered constantly. We often tend to take more responsibilities than we are capable of carrying out. This is done to satisfy our ego. Know your limitations. Why take on additional loads that may create more worries? You cannot gain peace of mind by expanding your external activities. Reduce your material engagements and spend time in prayer, introspection and meditation. This will reduce those thoughts in your mind that make you restless. An uncluttered mind will produce greater feelings of peace.

  1. Meditate Regularly

Meditation calms the mind and gets rid of disturbing thoughts. This is the highest state of peace of mind. Try it yourself. If you meditate earnestly for half an hour everyday, your mind will tend to become peaceful during the remaining twenty three and a half hours. Your mind will not be as easily disturbed as it was before. You would benefit by gradually increasing the period of daily meditation. You may think that this will interfere with your daily work. On the contrary, this will increase your efficiency and you will be able to produce better results in less time.

  1. Never Leave The Mind Vacant

An empty mind is the devil’s workshop. All evil actions start in the vacant mind. Keep your mind occupied in something positive, something worthwhile. Actively follow a hobby. Do something that holds your interest. You must decide what you value more: money or peace of mind. Your hobby, like social work or charity work, may not always earn you more money, but you will have a sense of fulfillment and achievement.

  1. Do Not Procrastinate And Never Regret

Do not waste time in protracted wondering ”Should I or shouldn’t I?” Days, weeks, months, and years can be wasted in that futile mental debating. You can never plan enough because you can never anticipate all future happenings. Value your time and do the things that need to be done. It does not matter if you fail the first time. You can learn from your mistakes and succeed the next time. Sitting back and worrying will lead to nothing. Learn from your mistakes, but do not brood over the past.

DO NOT REGRET. Whatever happened was destined to happen only that way. Why cry over spilled milk?

The Secret of Happiness

The secret of happiness is to be free of fear. Fear is like a toxin that runs through much of our thinking. It feeds on insecurity, feeling of loss, loneliness, inadequacy and attachment. You are lovable and loving. Accept this as Truth. Appreciate and care for yourself – truly, deeply, intensely, in a way that reflects your real value. Then you will automatically have the same regards for all other living beings and things.

Small Stories #42

There is a story about a sea Captain who in his retirement skippered a boat taking day-trippers to Islands.

On one trip, the boat was full of young people.

They laughed at the old captain when they saw him say a prayer before sailing out, because the day was fine and the sea was calm.

However they weren’t long at sea when a storm suddenly blew up and the boat began to roll & pitch violently.

The terrified passengers came to the captain and asked him to join them in prayer.

But he replied, “I say my prayers when it’s calm. When it’s rough I attend to my ship.”

Here is a lesson for us……

If we cannot seek God in quiet moments of our lives; we are not likely to find him when trouble strikes.

We are more likely to panic.

But if we have learnt to seek him and trust him in quiet moments, then most certainly we will find him when the going gets rough.

Common Social rules

(A better etiquette or mannerism collected)

  1. Don’t call someone more than twice continuously. If they don’t pick up your call, presume they have something important to attend to;
  2. Return money that you have borrowed even before the other person remembers lending it to you. It shows your integrity and character. Same goes with umbrellas, pens and lunch boxes;
  3. Never order the expensive dish on the menu when someone is giving you a lunch/dinner. If possible ask them to order their choice of food for you;
  4. Don’t ask awkward questions like ‘Oh so you aren’t married yet?’ Or ‘Don’t you have kids’ or ‘Why didn’t you buy a house?’ Or why don’t you buy a car? For God’s sake it isn’t your problem;
  5. Always open the door for the person coming behind you. It doesn’t matter if it is a guy or a girl, senior or junior. You don’t grow small by treating someone well in public;
  6. If you take a taxi with a friend and he/she pays now, try paying next time;
  7. Respect different shades of opinions. Remember what’s 6 to you will appear 9 to someone facing you. Besides, second opinion is good for an alternative;
  8. Never interrupt people talking. Allow them to pour it out. As they say, hear them all and filter them all;
  9. If you tease someone, and they don’t seem to enjoy it, stop it and never do it again. It encourages one to do more and it shows how appreciative you’re;
  10. Say “thank you” when someone is helping you.
  11. Praise publicly. Criticize privately;
  12. There’s almost never a reason to comment on someone’s weight. Just say, “You look fantastic.” If they want to talk about losing weight, they will;
  13. When someone shows you a photo on their phone, don’t swipe left or right. You never know what’s next;
  14. If a colleague tells you they have a doctors’ appointment, don’t ask what it’s for, just say “I hope you’re okay”. Don’t put them in the uncomfortable position of having to tell you their personal illness. If they want you to know, they’ll do so without your inquisitiveness;
  15. Treat the cleaner with the same respect as the CEO. Nobody is impressed at how rude you can treat someone below you but people will notice if you treat them with respect;
  16. If a person is speaking directly to you, staring at your phone is rude;
  17. Never give advice until you’re asked;
  18. When meeting someone after a long time, unless they want to talk about it, don’t ask them their age and salary;
  19. Mind your business unless anything involves you directly – just stay out of it;
  20. Remove your sunglasses if you are talking to anyone in the street. It is a sign of respect. Moreso, eye contact is as important as your speech; and
  21. Never talk about your riches in the midst of the poor. Similarly, don’t talk about your children in the midst of the barren.
  22. APPRECIATION remains the easiest way of getting what you don’t have.


Loved this message so sharing :

Sunflowers 🌻 turn according to the position of the sun. In other words, they “chase the light.” You might already know this, but there is another fact that you probably do not know!

Have you ever wondered what happens on cloudy and rainy days when the sun is completely covered by clouds?🤔

This is an interesting question.Isn’t it?

Perhaps you think the sunflower withers or turns its head towards the ground. Is this what crossed your mind?

Well, that’s incorrect!

This is what happens?

They turn towards each other to share their energy.🌻✨🌻

Nature’s perfection is amazing. Now let’s apply this reflection to our lives. Many people may become low-spirited, and the most vulnerable ones, sometimes, become depressed.
How about following the example of the beautiful sunflowers 🌻i.e.”Supporting and empowering each other”. Nature has so much to teach us.

Wishing everyone a “Sun flower”🌻 trait of turning towards each other on their cloudy and gloomy days.

Spread goodness…

Have Faith

Wake up to happiness.When we believe in ourselves and what we are doing faith grows. When we live with faith we worry less. Believe in what you are doing. Believe in today’s opportunities. Things will come together. Faith generates courage, enthusiasm, determination and enables us to move forward in contrast to self-doubt and worrying about how things will happen etc. When we have faith we don’t need to know every detail in advance. For example when we get on a plane without knowing the pilot we are living with faith. Have faith and Become free from fear and doubt. Fears of different kinds are one of the main obstacles in experiencing contentment.

Golden rules

Golden Rules.

Who is helping you, don’t forget them.
Who is loving you don’t hate them.
Who is trusting you, don’t cheat them.

The ones who love you will never leave you. Even if there are hundred reasons to give up, they will find one reason to hold on.

Everyone is good to you till you expect nothing from them and you are too good to them till you fulfil their expectations.

Well wishers are like street lamps. They cannot make our distance shorter but they can lighten our path and make the journey easier.Let’s appreciate our well wishers.

Many people don’t look for the truth, they are in search of those people who will agree with them.The person who gets angry a lot also loves a lot;
Because red is the not the colour only of anger, it is also the colour of love.

True people never go out from our life easily. But when it happens, they always come back at right time without expectation.There is no point blaming anyone in your life.

Good people can give you joy. Not so good people can give you experience.

Worst people can give you a lesson and the best people can give you beautiful memories.

Life is about balance.
Be kind, but don’t let people abuse you.

Trust, but don’t be deceived. Be content, but never stop improving yourself.
