Our happiness is always arising from inside. It should never be subject to any outside influence. Whatever our environment is, don’t allow our inner peace to be touched by it. Our inner peace should always be our priority. Decisions should be based upon the criteria of peace of mind, upon stillness of mind.
Don’t keep our mind engaged with too many activities. Analyze what we get from them, and see if they are really important. We consume and become the energy of the activities we do, the focus we maintain, the people we socialize with, our habitual thoughts and the environment we create.
Seclusion is the price of enlightenment and greatness. Be alone within. Don’t waste time, constantly seeking new pleasures and excitements. Time is most precious. Once-in-awhile it is all right to go to the movies, have meals with friends and have a little social life, but mostly remain apart and live within the Self. Enjoy introspection, solitude, nature and silence. When we want to mix with others, do so with love, but mainly turn our mind toward the highest.
Be easy and enjoy. Be simple and uncomplicated. Be non-resistant and accepting. Be at peace. Peace allows stillness and stillness reveals the highest.
