The Dalai Lama, the great Tibetan spiritual leader, reveals what are the things that "steal" our energy, drawing attention to the 10 "thieves of energy" and how we can protect them against them.
The energy we have is the gold mine for the soul, the fuel that moves us. It must be preserved, regenerated, used constructively, because it is not inexhaustible. We can offer this precious energy to do well, but we must not let things and the negative and toxic people deprive us of it and consume it for us.
According to information circulating on the Internet and around the world, the Dalai Lama, the great Tibetan spiritual leader, reveals what are the things that "steal" our energy, drawing attention to the 10 "thieves of energy" and how we can protect ourselves against them. The Buddhist monk also provides us with tips to help us identify these energy thieves.
Be good whenever possible. It is always possible. (Dalai Lama)
1. Discard people who come to you just to complain, to tell their discontents, problems, stories, disasters, fears, and opinion-based opinions about others. If you see someone trying to find a basket to throw their garbage, do not let your mind absorb a ton of negativity.
2. Pay your debts in time. At the same time, try to recover the money from the one who owes it or choose to give up if it is impossible.
3. Keep your promises. If you have failed to meet them, ask why, why you oppose the resistance. You always have the right to change your mind, apologize, resign, renegotiate, or offer an alternative to the broken promise. But be careful not to become a habit. The easiest way to avoid doing something you do not want is to say "NO" from the beginning.
4. Whenever possible, give up tasks that do not please or delegate from them and spend as much time doing what you like.
5. Give your permission to rest if you are in a time when you need rest and give yourself permission to act if it is time.
6. Throw, gather and organize, nothing will steal more of your energy than a disorderly place full of past things that you no longer need and that are no longer of any use to you.
7. Give priority to your health. Accept that sometimes your body can not function at full capacity. Take your breaks at that moment.
8. Confront the toxic situations you currently tolerate, help a friend or family member, and take the necessary steps to stop the partner's / friends' toxic actions.
9. Accept. This is not to give up, but nothing makes you lose more energy than to fight back and fight a situation that you can not change.
10. Forgive me. Leave a situation that causes pain, you can always choose that pain to become just a memory.
Ten quotes from the Dalai Lama:
1. I find hope in the darkest of the days, and I focus in the happiest. I do not judge the universe.
2. Be good as many times as you can. And it can always be.
3. Live an honorable life. When you get old and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it twice.
4. Happiness is not something done, it comes from your deeds.
5. My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
6. Remember: the best relationship is where mutual love goes beyond everyone's need.
7. Open your arms to change, but do not lose your values.
8. Follow the 3 R: respect for you, respect for others, responsibility for all your actions.
9. When you realize that you are wrong, immediately take steps to correct them.
10. When we feel love and kindness to those around us, not only do we make others feel this, but they help us to develop our love and inner peace.
