What is the Art of Living?
What is LIFE?
We all have a life today. We all have a schedule to look at such as, get up each morning, get ready, go to work, come back, eat and sleep. But, have we really thought about how our life is going?
Each day goes by and have we ever touched anyone's heart or at the end of the day, is there anybody who would remember us in a positive way? Is this human life supposed to go in a monotonous way? Are we supposed to just do our work, earn money, enjoy life and be merry until we breathe our last? Or is there a rule to follow while we are breathing? In other words, what is the Art of Living?
Importance of a breath
Breath is a very important factor of LIFE. We have life because we are breathing. We have our system running because of the breath we take in. I am sure, none of us are aware of the times we breathe in each day. This breathe goes in our body and we get our system running within us. This breathe is so important since; it is giving us life and yet we are running after other things in life. WHY?
I understand that we have to run after our job since at the end of the day, we have food to put on the table, bills to pay etc. But being aware of our surrounding is an essential element of life and we should not shift our focus from it.
Essential element in our life?
The essential element of our life is eternal happiness. Eternal bliss can only be achieved when we learn the art of living.
This Art of Living is being considerate, putting others first for a change, being non-selfish, doing an act of kindness, learn to give; regardless of the result and make a motto in life to touch at least one person's heart each day.
Ponder upon and show our gratitude...
Many of us are fortunate to get a family and good friends around us. There are some who need that and we have to reach out to them and touch them by our kindness and our support. The real meaning of Life is to give and thou shall live. Just as the plants give out oxygen for us to breathe and live. The same way, we should be helping our brethren who need the support and kindness.
What is THE Art of Living?
Being Kind is the key to the Art of Living.I understand that we cannot be kind under all circumstances but, one can make a call by seeing the circumstance and be a judge for it. However, we should not forget that by being kind to others we are not obliging them in any ways but we are making our heart healthy by rejoicing at the thought of touching someone that day. We are extending another day in our life by touching some one's soul. We are going one step backward from negativity and stress and diseases and taking one step towards happiness and contentment of this life. That will lead us to be at Peace.
To be at peace within our selves makes us free from all sorts of attachment and aversions. Can you imagine if everyone is at Peace, what a wonderful planet this will be? Peace is such an important factor in everyone's life and we all are searching for it by going places and little do we know that it lies within us, we just have to make ways to find it.
We are all in the chakra of life where an infant, when born is sent to school to get knowledge since, he is ignorant. Attending school is supposed to make him smart, make him aware of his surroundings, and eventually make him an independent person to make the right decisions when life becomes a challenge for him. Little do we realize that by gaining knowledge and being independent and learning to face life on their own, they will also be with facing all the negativities of life which is being carried around by his fellow men. We should be able to draw a line in our lives where we do not allow this negativity to come within our perimeter.
It is up to us, how we take on this challenge and learn the Art of Living since, we all have the knowledge and awareness but seek around to get it, but little do we realize that it is all within us and we just have to take a moment to reflect on it and voila we will attain a blissful life!
