Be more Mindfull and Conscious

Mindfulness and Consciousness

Few months back, I attended a funeral function. I was wondered to see the screaming of the ladies there. It seemed they were not able to control the sorrow of losing their relative. But then they had not taken care of the relative when he was alive.

This happens in many relationships. We often take everything for granted and miss out many things in life.

We take loved ones for granted, assuming that they will be always have their support no matter what. Too many people have regrets if someone they love dies suddenly and they’ve never expressed their love.

Being taken for granted can happen in relationships with parents, with children, with spouses/partners, with friends and with people that we work with.

These days even when we spend time with friends and family, we’re not really there with them. We talk to them but are distracted by devices. Rather than just meeting with them, we should be able to connect with them.

Do not take anything for granted.Many often we forget the blessings in life and cry for what is lacking.

We wake up every day healthy, without considering the worries of unhealthy ones.
We look for big things to appreciate and ignore all the simple little things that add to its happiness.
The high salaried job, the nice dishes prepared by spouse/mom, the beautiful house that we live in, - we have it all but lack contentment. We forget that the things you take for granted, someone else is praying for. Happiness never comes to those who don’t appreciate what they already have.

Instead of being too busy with life, take time to go outside and observe nature, take a deep breath of fresh air, enjoy the serenity of greenery.

These days we see people driving so fast and accidents happen more often. If we apply the mindfulness principle in driving, we respect others who travel and reduces risk.

Every day is a gift; every breath is a gift. What we do with them is our choice and this determines our life.

We all know Smiling reduces stress. But I have met quite a few who never smiles.

When we are living with total awareness, we enjoy life.Be clear on what you  values more in your life

Be less judgmental, be more open and receptive to the world.

Be responsible for all your actions.

Be True to yourself.

People are not as beautiful as they look, walk, or talk.  They are only as beautiful as they love,  care, and  share. I have felt that generous people are more happier than others.

There is magic in connection. Take the time to listen. There is beauty everywhere, you just need to open your eyes.

Keep life simple and enjoyable by doing what you know in your heart is right.

Reduce tensions in life, be patient and enjoy life.
