11 Meditation gives me a discerning eye - an ability to discriminate between truth and falsehood. It does this by helping me maintain a consciousness that helps me rise above competing claims to truth – the different ideologies and opinions, reasons and analyses, justifications and stories related to a situation - which can be so confusing. Meditation opens my third eye, the eye of pure consciousness. When I look at the world through this eye, truth is not just an intellectual idea, but an experience of the heart. When I think and act in ways that maintain and deepen this experience of truth, I know I am moving in the right direction.
12 To rise from the ashes: learn from failure and bounce back stronger. Strong enough to remain focused on success, despite setbacks. Handle setbacks by seeing them for what they are; temporary setbacks, not the end of the world! "The road to happiness lies in two simple principles: find what interests you and that you can do well, and put your whole soul into it -- every bit of energy and ambition and natural ability you have." "Life has got a habit of not standing hitched. You got to ride it like you find it. You got to change with it. If a day goes by that don't change some of your old notions for new ones, that is just about like trying to milk a dead cow."
13 Bring The Change Within Yourself !! Instead of waiting for things to change, you create a stage that will help change things. Check if you are using words like, 'when things change for the better, I'll change too... I am just waiting for the things to get better...' If you are using such words, it means you are letting the situation control you. Each day tell yourself, 'I have full control of the situations around me. It is when I change that things around me will change too and I definitely have the power to change things around me.' Find Your Own Treasures & Share Them To Benefit !! Use the treasures you have in a practical way and you'll find benefit. Check what treasures you have that you could share with others. It could be the treasure of happiness, of love or of clear thinking. Check if you are using any of the treasures for your own benefit or that of others. Each day begin the day with a thought to use the treasure that you have discovered for yourself. Remind yourself that the more you give the more it'll grow. Continue using your treasures in this way and bring benefit to all.
14 Make a game of finding something positive in every situation. Ninety-five percent of your emotions are determined by how you interpret events to yourself." The life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the easiest type of existence. The life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the easiest type of existence. A goal is a dream with a deadline. Happiness is essentially a state of going somewhere, wholeheartedly, one-directionally, without regret or reservation.
15 Whether the day is gray or whether it is sunny, you can make a difference. If others support you or if they conspire to stand in your way, you can make a difference. If you have plenty of resources available to you or if you have very few, you can make a difference. If momentum is on your side or if it is not, you can make a difference. You can wait and hope for things to go your way. Or you can get busy and make it happen. You can complain that life has been terribly unfair. Or you can move ahead anyway and achieve what you intend, no matter what the obstacles may be. You can plead with others to give you a break. Or you can go ahead and forge your own path to success. Wherever you may be, whatever may have happened, you can make a positive difference. Live with commitment, decide to move forward no matter what, and you will. When you're driving, you can't stop someone overtaking or driving along side you. You really can't do much about the behaviour of other road users. You simply have to accept the other drivers on the road and keep going. In life too, we don't have to get affected by other people's behaviour or the way they are. Just simply accept them as they are and keep focused on moving ahead. Stress on the Road
