Something to think about
Karma – When people insult you, don’t take offence, don’t take it personally but do listen to their words. They are telling you how they see the world and they’re telling you the exact negative qualities that they possess. “The Laws of Mirrors” states that one can only see what’s in them, regardless if it is what is actually present in reality or not.
Release the need to defend or try to explain to them that you’re not being whatever nasty insult they’ve thrown at you but evaluate instead all of these insults and realize that this is who they are. Then decide if a person with those qualities is one who you’d like in your life or not – Doe Zantamata
“It doesn’t really matter who you used to be, what matters is who you’ve become”.
Forget perfection: strive towards progress.
In order to lead a meaningful life, you need to cherish others, pay attention to human values and try to cultivate inner peace – Dalai Lama
We need to understand how destructive emotions affect us and constructive emotions can help us, so that we can maintain our peace of mind – Dalai Lama
Don’t eat when feeling stressed or anxious…at that time the liver will have to work harder to digest the food – :@rawfoodbliss
