Contentment Is Happiness

February 18th, 2008 . by admin

Read to me :


When you are a 5 year old kid, you are happy with everything you have. When people give you a sweet, you beam with such happiness. You do not grumble about the favor of the sweet. You do not complain about only having one sweet. You basically enjoy it.

At 5 years old, you are contented and live fully in present. You have no desire. You have no preference. Basically you are contented with whatever is happening.

As we grow, we have more and more desires. We feel everything must happen in accordance to our wishes. We feel bad when events appear differently from what we hope for.

Maybe for one minute, learn to be contented. Be contented that you have a desk even though your desk is untidy. Be contented with your looks and everything about you for this is what is given to you in this life. Be contented with your kids as it is better to have your kids than none at all. Just for a minute, don’t compare or judge whatever you have. Just for one minute feel contented.

Can you feel the peace and happiness?

Your Humble Servant

February 11th, 2008 . by admin

Read to me :

Everyone of us has a humble servant. This humble servant serves us loyally, always seeking to make us happy and safe. He/she protects us from harm and brings us anything that will make us happy. He/She works 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

This humble servant is known as our subconscious mind.

Our subconscious mind is very loyal and will not forsake us in times of needs. It ensure that our heart pumps every second and other parts of our body works properly throughout the day. When there is a danger, it help us to react instantly without the need to think.

We Attract What We Are Happy About

This humble servant always seek to provide us with more of what we feel genuinely happy about. This servant wants us to be happy.  We must be truly and totally happy about something, then our faithful servant will bring them to us.

We Get What We Are Comfortable With

Our humble servant always ensure that we are safe and comfortable. Look at the pleasures that you do most often. Many of them are done because you are comfortable and feel safe doing them. You watch alot of T.V. because you feel comfortable watching them. If you are comfortable watching movies, you watch many of them. If you are comfortable with some friends, you go out often with them. Your servant is here to bring you all these pleasures that are comfortable and safe.

Why We Don’t Get Things We Think We Will Be Happy With?

There are many things you desire. You think that all these things will make you very happy. A million dollars. A new car. A big house. A new job.

Your humble servant may not bring these items to you because you are not comfortable or feel insecure in owning them.

You may want riches but you fear of being robbed. You may not feel comfortable with people asking you for money when you are rich. You may hate rich people and therefore your servant don’t want you to become a person you would hate.

You may want a new job but you may feel insecure moving into a new environment and serving a new boss.

You may want a new car or a big house but you may feel uncomfortable doing the washing and cleaning. You may have negative feeling about the loans you will be supporting. Then again, you may hate people driving big sports car or live in big mansion and therefore your servant prevents you from becoming someone you hate.

Your servant will not make you insecure or unhappy by realising your dream. When there is conflict in what you want, the servant will protect you by not realizing your dream.

Try looking at a hundred thousand or a million dollar note. If you are given so much money, how will you truly feel? Quiet down and ask yourself what you truly feel. Some people will feel that they don’t deserve it while other will feel that such thing will never happen to them. In short, many people are not comfortable with that large amount of money.

Your Mind Can Be A Problem

Our subconscious mind never thinks and only wanted to ensure that we are happy and safe. This part of us is a zombie.

The main problem with this servant is that it does not think. When we laugh at other people’s misfortune, it bring us the same misfortune. When we are happy, creating suffering for our enemies, we get the same kind of suffering in the future. This is called retribution. It is not the fault of the servant. The servant just bring us things that we are happy about.

How To Correctly Use This Servant?

This servant is powerful and loyal. The only problem is that it cannot think. As long as we think correctly for it, it will serve us well. This is how we can get result we desire.

  • Rejoice in the good fortune of others: When we can be truly and toally happy in celebrating the good fortune of others, this servant will bring us this good fortune because it wants us to be happy. If you want to be rich, don’t feel angry or hatre towards those people driving sports cars or living in big houses. Instead, try to feel how great will it be for you to be in their place. Feel happy that these people can enjoy such good life and one day, you too will be able to do so.
  • Feel sad for someone’s misfortune: Our servant wants us to be happy and not sad. Being sad for someone else will make it remove such misfortune from our future life. If you cannot feel sad for your enemy’s misfortune, at least try to feel neutral.
  • Widen your comfort zone : Our servant wants us to be safe. Anything that make us insecure will be removed by it. Try to expand your comfort zone to experience things you wanted. If you want to be rich, read magazines created for the rich. Visit places that the rich will visit. Expand your friends to include the rich. As long as you are comfortable with being rich, you will attract wealth into your life.

 

There is a great teacher besides us. Learn from him.

February 4th, 2008 . by admin

Read to me :

There is a great teacher beside every of us. He has a vast knowledge and know the rules of every area. You name it, he knows it. The great teacher is life. Life is always teaching us about something. It is up to you whether you choose to learn or just ignore.

When you had friends, life teach you about friendship and betrayal. When you had money, life teach you pleasure and pain. When you gain something, life teaches you what is called lost.

Life is a knowledgeable teacher, who is willing to share his knowledge with you. Although life is a knowledgeable teacher, life is a very cruel teacher. He will teach you the same lesson again and again until you learn it by heart. If you fail a test without studying for the test, life will make sure you continue to fail again without studying. If you get rob because you are out till very late at night, life will teach you the same lesson as long as you stay out late. If you get burnt because you are careless with fire, you can be sure that life will get you burnt the next time you are careless.

All great men are great because they learn the lessons from life that other people choose to ignore. Some example of these great men are Newton, Leonardo Da Vinci and Albert Einstein. You, too can be great by being a attentive student of this great teacher called life.

Life Balls

January 14th, 2008 . by admin

Read to me :

 

Everyone of us need to juggle many things in life : work, family, health, friends, and money. Keeping all the balls in the air all the time can be difficult because you and me only got 2 hands. Everyday we only get 24 hours. On bad days, 24 hours seems to be too long. On good days, these 24 hours is too short for us. So how do you juggle the balls in your life correctly?

 If you examine the balls, you will notice some of the balls are make of rubber and others are make of glass.

Balls of family and health are make of glass. If you drop them, they are broken. Always seek to keep these glass balls in the air all the time, whether you have time or not, whether you like it or not.

Other balls like work are make of rubber. You loose your job, you can always find another one. You loose your friend, you can find another one.  You loose some money, you can also earn it back. These rubber balls can bounced back when you drop them.


In my opinion, the priorities in life should be like this.

  • Health
  • Family
  • Money

Health comes first. You need to do something everyday to maintain or improve your health. Without health, you can achieve nothing in life. Without health, you cannot take care of your loved ones. That’s why health is so important.

Family comes next. If you think that family is no good, perhaps you never had any major setbacks in your life. When you have work problems or major health problems, you will find that a family is where you can fall back on. A family is also someone whom you can share your happiness with. Without someone to share your joy with, your happiness is not happy at all.

Money comes next but not the last. Other balls like friends will come after money. Money is needed to maintain the first two priorities : health and family.

I feel that by maintaining the priorities in this order, you will get the most benefit out of life. If you are unhappy about your life, look at how you prioritize your balls in life or which are the balls that are missing in your life.
