In the life we live, we are faced with several obstacles and challenges, some of which can make us loose hope and despair. All we need is the right motivation and gentle push in the right direction to get us back to our feet again. Here are some quotes from Buddha to fill you with positivity about life and rejuvenate you with the happiness to live.
#1. DO NOT DWELL IN THE PAST, DO NOT DREAM OF THE FUTURE, CONCENTRATE THE MIND ON THE PRESENT MOMENT
#2. IT’S A MAN’S OWN MIND, NOT HIS ENEMY OR FOE, THAT LURES HIM TO EVIL WAYS
3. “You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”
We spend a lot of our time loving and adoring other people… be it the members of our family, our friends, or our love interests/crushes. Although doing so is not wrong, but most of us forget the most important person in our lives… ourselves.
#3. NOTHING IS PERMANENT
#4. TRAIN YOUR MIND TO BE CALM IN EVERY SITUATION
#5. NEVER BE A PRISONER OF YOUR PAST. IT WAS JUST A LESSON NOT A LIFE SENTENCE
#6. THE WHOLE SECRET OF EXISTENCE IS TO HAVE NO FEAR. NEVER FEAR WHAT WILL BECOME OF YOU, DEPEND ON NO ONE. ONLY THE MOMENT YOU REJECT ALL HELP ARE YOU FREED
#7. GIVE PEOPLE TIME. GIVE PEOPLE SPACE. DON’T BEG ANYONE TO STAY. LET THEM ROAM. WHAT’S MEANT FOR YOU WILL ALWAYS BE YOURS
#8. THE TONGUE HAS NO BONES, YET IT IS STRONG ENOUGH TO BREAK A HEART . SO BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR WORDS
#9. “Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without”
Search within yourself if you want to find peace. Most of us seek peace and happiness in other things and people. We fail to see that no matter what we own or who we meet, we’ll be at peace only when we’ll accept that we are at peace with ourselves.
This means that we need to be at peace with who we are.
#9. BE YOURSELF. BE HAPPY. IF OTHERS DON’T LIKE IT, THEN LET THEM BE. HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE. LIFE IS NOT ABOUT PLEASING ANYBODY
#10. NEVER BE CONTROLLED BY THREE THINGS: YOUR PAST, MONEY AND PEOPLE
#11. ONE OF THE HAPPIEST MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE IS WHEN YOU FIND THE COURAGE TO ACCEPT WHAT YOU CAN’T CHANGE
#12. ALL THAT WE ARE IS THE RESULT OF WHAT WE HAVE THOUGHT. THE MIND IS EVERYTHING. WHAT WE THINK, WE BECOME.
#13. TO UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING IS TO FORGIVE EVERYTHING
#14. LIFE IS A CIRCLE OF HAPPINESS, SADNESS, HARDTIMES AND GOOD TIMES. IF YOU’RE GOING THROUGH HARD TIMES, HAVE FAITH THAT GOOD TIMES ARE ON THE WAY.
#15. DON’T CARRY YOUR MISTAKES AROUND WITH YOU. INSTEAD, PLACE THEM UNDER YOUR FEET AND USE THEM AS STEPPING STONES TO RISE ABOVE THEM.
