4. Know the power of impermanence
Impermanence is one of the most important buddhist teachings and one that must be fully understood and accepted in order to fully understand life.
NOTHING IS PERMANENT and the sooner you understand what this really means and accept this, you will be able to live a life filled with less expectation from anything and anyone.
The only thing that is constant is change itself and when you can learn to embrace change, beautiful things begin to shift in our lives.
5. Learn the art of patience
For some people patience is the hardest thing to achieve. Notice how these people become angry and agitated quite quickly?
There is a time and place for everything. Time is man-made and should never cause you frustration. Patience is definitely a virtue and the moment you are capable of controlling it, you are well on your way to living a more fulfilled life.
6. Forget about what other people think
Society has a way of programming our egos. We are constantly aware of what other people might be thinking or saying about us.
Feeding the ego is by no means healthy and even though we think it results in happiness, we are greatly mistaken. Keeping your ego happy doesn’t mean that you are happy.
The Monks suggest that you detach from your ego, this is what will allow you to grow spiritually.
You need to focus on what you think and feel instead of those around you and when you are able to do this, you will be more in tune with your true self.
