There are so many ways to gain a better appreciation for the beauty this world has to offer. No
matter what is going on with the outside world, even if it is falling apart, we can remain calm and
still through meditation.
Minimize outside stimulus and sit still and straight. Breathe slowly and focus on the breath. Stay
calm and ignore the outside world. If your mind wanders, acknowledge that thought and return to
your state of calm and quiet.
Meditation has been truly life changing for me and I can’t endorse it enough. For five minutes of
your time, this is the most positive way to affect your life. Keep a meditation journal and record
what the universe has to share with you. Track your progress and maintain this habit.
My life really began to improve when I started writing. It takes time, but writing has been truly
cathartic to me. It helps me organize my chaotic thoughts and get frustrations and anger off my
mind in a calm and controlled manner. It will also help you track your progress which at times
will be very slow.
By reflecting over a written piece from months ago, you are better able to recognize the changes
that you have made. Be mindful of your thoughts for they become your actions, and your actions
become who you are.
The trick is to want for less than we have. To not let mindless consumerism, consume our time,
money and energy. Find what makes you truly happy and solely focus on that. Focus on spiritual
growth over aspirations of wealth.
Maintain the body, mind and spirit in good health. Yoga connects the body to the mind.
Meditation connects the mind to spirit. Exercise shapes the body. Mindfulness shapes the mind.
An open mind and shared experiences shapes the spirit. In a world so full of high-speed
connections, we have never been more disconnected from each other and our spiritual paths.
We have lost connection with the natural world. We have artificial friends, artificial characters in
video games, artificial flavors and artificial plants. What happened to living in the real world?
We used to worship nature and respect our relationship with the natural world, yet now we
conquer and plunder it for resources.
Get outside and surround yourself with the beauty of this green world as often as possible. The
peace and quiet found in nature reduces stress and can remind you that as ugly as the world may
seem, it still has plenty of beauty to offer.
Stop making celebrities famous. Don’t mindlessly consume what you don’t need or love.
Freedom comes from avoiding debt.
Inner peace comes from abstaining from worldly possessions, and instead seeking the truth. Buy
local to support your community.
Look for an alternative source of income so that you are not a slave to your job. Lower your cost
of living expenses and avoid debt. Paying interest on loans is ensuring your slavery to the
Matrix. This system has an expectation of you.
