1. Mindfulness for Family Friends and Relationships
At the end of the day, what matters most are the people in our lives. Put them first every single day. Before work. Before the computer. Before your hobbies. Treat them like they are everything to you. Because they are. Friendships need time and attention. Nurture them like a prized garden. The payoff is so worth it. Mindfulness about our family and friends increases our compassion towards them and the world.
“Family, friends and relationships are the blessings of the God. They are the best way to access God.” – Amit Ray
2. Kindness matters
Small expressions of kindness have an enormous positive impact on other people. It doesn’t take much to be kind. Practice it every day, in every situation, until it’s your natural way of being.
“Kindness has no religion. Religions are like narrow tracks but kindness is like an open sky.” – Amit Ray
3. Passion upgrades life
When you find that thing you love to do with all your heart, every day feels like a gift. If you have a powerful purpose in life, you don’t have to be pushed. Your passion will move you there. The joy it brings spills over into all aspects of your life.
“If you haven’t found your passion, make it a goal to find it. Passion is the source of joy.” — Amit Ray
4. Never give up be persistent
We should persistently pursue whatever goals we have set for ourselves until we reach our intended destination and achieve our dreams. Let go of the fantasy of being instantly successful, and choose instead to be reliably successful. With consistent and persistent effort.
“Success needs vision to see, passion to transcend, patience to withstand and the character to overcome failures.” – Amit Ray
5. Ignite the divine sparks in you
Inner strength, often called “resilience,” is the ability to cope with the stressful situations that life throws at us. Building inner strength begins with simple actions or thoughts that your child practices, such as planning for what to do next and learning to accept change. Keep going, keep learning, keep making improvements, one effort at a time.
“Stand up for who you are. Respect your Self and ignite the divine sparks in you. Access your powers. Choose your rights and work together with others to bring blessings into the lives.” – Amit Ray
6. Listen to our inner voice and find peace
We call it inner voice, inner guide, spiritual guide,a hunch, an impression or conscious mind. It is more about gut feeling than a voice or words. Normally, If you are superficial or too fast it could easily have turned out to be wrong. It needs training and patience. Don’t try to figure it out in the heat of the moment. It needs time. Becoming aware of your inner thoughts and it will free you of its power and improve the accuracy of your inner voice.
“Art of listening inner voice needs training, patience and time.” — Amit Ray
7. Living in harmony with thoughts, words and actions
Some things which disturbs your harmony come from outside ourselves, and therefore outside of our control. However, while we cannot control these outside influences, we can control how we react to them. It’s true, you can control how you react. It might not be easy, but it can be done.
“Mindfulness helps us to live in harmony with our thoughts, words and actions.” — Amit Ray
8. Inner strength is more important
Strength is choosing what is right despite the choice being difficult. There is always a subtle voice which stops you from making the wrong decision. But the problem is that in the big noise of thoughts roaming inside the mind, this subtle inner voice at times is not heard and at times people choose to ignore it.
“Every struggle is like mud – there are always some lotus seeds waiting to sprout.” — Amit Ray
9. Accept and welcome the changes in life
Life is change. We shouldn’t resist it. Remaining stagnant is in opposition to the natural order of life. Flow with change. Embrace it and regard it as an adventure. To make positive change in your life, you often must take risk. You must tolerate some level of uncertainty. Taking thoughtful, calculated risk strengthens your change muscle and helps you grow.
“In every change, in every falling leaf there is some pain, some beauty. And that’s the way new leaves grow.” — Amit Ray
10. Honor the uniqueness of the people
We want people to think and behave as we do. We want them to accommodate us and live the way we think they should live. We want to change them. But with awareness, we realize we can’t and shouldn’t try to control others. Instead, embrace differences and honor the uniqueness of the people in your life.
“Every life has a unique story. Every path has its unique beauty.” — Amit Ray
No matter where you are on life’s journey right now, you can claim your inner power and create the life you’ve always wanted. Mindfulness and compassion can give you the power, illumination, love, and wisdom to draw higher forms, thoughts, feelings, and situations into your life.
“Compassion is the signature of Higher Consciousness. Non-violence is the tool to evolve into the Higher Consciousness.” – Amit Ray
