A Blog Worth Sharing # 6- Zen and the Art of Everyday Living

Hello Everyone!

The blog that I am sharing with you today is one of the most helpful blogs I’ve encountered, especially when it comes to living mindfully and peacefully. The author, Richard Grumberg, has a very clear and easy to understand approach in his writings. I strongly recommend that you visit his blog… AND for the poetic bloggers, you may also like his other blog  575 Haiku Place.

Thank you Richard for teaching us the art of everyday living! Your amazing blog is truly inspirational and helpful.

BLOG NAME: Zen and the Art of Everyday Living
POST TITLE: The Path of Wisdom: Parenting the Inner Child

“Whether or not you believe in the concept of an ‘inner child’ (and no less a Zen Master than Thich Nhat Hanh is a strong proponent of it), we all know that just about every time we set out do something that will require any appreciable effort, our feelings will inevitably scream out, “I don’t want to! I don’t want to! Let’s just do that tomorrow!”

Conversely, any time we are tempted to do something that we know we shouldn’t do, our feelings will cry out, “But I want to! I want to! Do it! Do it! Do it!” Those feelings make up a large part of our inner child.

This is why I believe that parenting our inner child, which is predisposed to avoiding pain and seeking pleasure, is one of the greatest skills any human being can develop if they want to successfully do just about anything involving any appreciable effort.”

Your Duty To The World

“How dare you NOT stand out? It is a shame of you not to share your gift with world! What about all the people you can touch? What about the inspiration and love you can spread? If you spare the world your gift, you may take away many smiles from the people who would love your work.”

What Kind of Tree Are You?

“Look inside and examine who you really are in the most objective way possible (this is a high level of maturity – objectivity). Don’t judge or criticize what you find inside; if you don’t like what you found inside, just understand that you can change and go get the information needed for you to do that.”

Live Happier. Here’s HOW.

I want to share with you 4 key points that I have learned in order to live a happier life. Believe me when I say that I am still trying my very best to adapt these everyday, and sometimes I fail, but what’s important is I don’t stop trying =)

1. ACCEPTANCE

“I’m okay with what I ultimately can’t do, because there is so much that I can do.”-Sam Berns

It’s our automatic response to make excuses when we are afraid to fail at something that we really want to achieve in life. We can come up with all the reasons that hinders us from doing what needs to be done. But we need to be bigger than our limitations! We should focus on the things that we can control and change.

2. GRATITUDE

“We have a choice. Either to be angry for what we don’t have, or be thankful for what we do have.”- Nick Vujicic

If we have a grateful attitude, we will never fail to find a reason to be thankful for everyday. We will always see the good in a bad circumstance or situation. We have more appreciation for life because we find joy in even the simplest things.

I’ve written more about this topic on my blog entitled To be Happy, be Grateful

3. SELF-AWARENESS

“Two biggest barriers to you fulfilling your purpose in life is Envy and People-pleasing.”- Rick Warren

We can never be truly happy if we are always wishing to be someone else or be like someone else; nor can we be happy pretending to be someone else just to belong or feel accepted. Why? because trying to be like someone we’re not prevents us from reaching our full potentials. We need to know ourselves- embrace our strengths and accept our limitations. This way, we can truly be at peace with ourselves and be happy with who we are.

4. COMPANY

“People inspire you, or they drain you. Pick them wisely.”- Hans Hansen

The people that you are with can affect how you look at yourself and the world around you. If you stay in the company of negative people- those who always whine and complain about their lives, blame other people of their misfortunes, and always see the obstacles in reaching their goals- tendency is, you become one of them. As the saying goes, birds of the same feathers flock together. So fly with the optimistic guys- be with the happy, vibrant and successful people. They are the ones who give a positive influence in your life.

I hope you’ll consider these and experience a happier life! 🙂
