How to fill the soul?
It is no secret that for everyone his own peace and happiness is paramount. But how can we be calm and happy, if now and then, often without knowing it, we sow misfortune and grief. Let us reflect on the topic of how to fill the soul with love and happiness, joy and, most importantly, peace of mind - after all, only a truly calm person can become happy himself and make others happy.
Being happy is real
First of all, look into yourself. This phrase may seem trivial or meaningless, but it all depends on how you understand it. And you can understand it this way: with the help of a tool that is available to everyone - our mind - you need to reflect on what we live and how we do. And the best remedy for this is thoughtful meditation. I do not mean that you need to sit on the mat, close your eyes and relax. I mean that you need to be attentive all the time. Some desire has occurred to you - explore it. Where did it come from? What will bring you its implementation? Generally: where do thoughts come from? As soon as it becomes clear that a thought is just a thought, life will become much easier.I know that many suffer from their own alleged imperfections, from the fact that they are visited, as they think, sinful thoughts. But a thought cannot be sinful, only actions can act as sinners, that is, realized thoughts.
Be creative with one heart
And so on the implementation of thoughts and you need to pay attention first and foremost. The selfish person does not think at all about what the realization of his desire will bring to others. And he, like no one else, begins to suffer from the fact that someone, in turn, hurt him. Desire what others want - and you will make yourself truly happy. A different way will doom you to suffering. If your desires are in harmony with the world or at least do not harm anyone - this is already a huge step towards filling your soul. But this is only the first step. Next, you need to reject selfish impulses and expectations over and over again, in order, in the words of a respected Hindu, "to destroy the prison that you built around you because of lack of thought." There is no other way, and the sooner you understand this, the sooner you will achieve your desired goal. If you do something, you need to do it with an unrequited heart, not expecting anything in return, just as we do not expect anything from our children.And only this behavior sooner or later leads a person to the achievement of the highest happiness that is possible in this world.
