The royal road to mental peace
(THis is based on a tamil article on ten steps to mental peace posted by ten different people in face book .One of them could be possibly the original author .I have shortened it , modified it and written it in my own way .Thanks to the original author)
1.Without someone asking for your help,
Do not bother to interfere in his affairs,
For most of us are creating problems .
For ourselves. Because of this interference
2,Pardon and forget , the hurts caused by others,
For by growing ill will and hatred in our mind.
WE become restless , sleepless and joy less,
Which causes ulcer , blood pressure and restlessness
3.Never keep on hankering for recognition,
For this world is filled with selfish people ,
And if they recognize or praise others ,
It is mainly for getting some benefit for them.
4.Do not be jealous of others happiness and achievements,
For this very negative feeling , is the cause of absence of mental peace.
Please understand that another person getting anything ,
Which we were not able to get is due to fate and nothing else
5.Please change yourself according to your circumstances,
And your environment , for if you try to change your environment ,
You would face certain defeat and by altering yourself ,
You would soon see that environment would become sweet and pleasant.
6.Everything cannot be done by every body and so,
By loosing your happiness when you face a job,
That you are not able to do , only makes you sad,
Instead find out who or what can complete that job.
7.Do not do take up any job which is beyond your capability ,
Though by doing so you would boost up your ego and ,
AS a result when you are physically or mentally crushed,
You would slowly loose your confidence , making your life miserable.
8. Practice to do proper meditation , not necessarily on God ,
It could be even meditation on the good that you can do to others,
And this would definitely lead you for a peace of mind,
Increase your ability to concentrate and make you happy.
9.Never ever keep your mind in to a blank space ,
For a blank mind is the production factory of Satan,
And all bad thoughts , worries and complexes ,
Have always started with a blank, and idle mind.
10.Never , ever postpone anything and never ever,
Be sad for anything , never ever waste your time,
Worrying , whether anything is possible to do by you,
Always be positive and keep yourself constantly engaged .
