Communication the buddhist way

I learned that there is a different way of communication.

Instead of piling on big words, more words and non stop talking, beginning with silence is an excellent way to express yourself in its truest form.

Keep your eyes focus on the person you are talking to, no distraction. When i look closely to the person who i am talking to, i can see their friendly face, kind eyes, the ageing fine lines, everything that makes her unique as a person.

Instead of using words, i use my heart to feel the connection between us, to feel the feeling of the person opposite me, and so when i start talking, i am able to chose a tone/a facial expression to match the perceived feeling, and by that i find a ground for understanding and communicate more effectively.

Love is the root of everything, when everything is done with love and with care, the result becomes amazing and paramount.

Time is now

I always worry about wasting time

I always rush to get something done quickly

I set a goal and set a time for myself to reach that goal in the shortest time possible

There is no time for slowing down

Life is quick

Life is hectic

Life is a journey to the death

My view is set in the future

I never see the moment of now

I never know how to treasure the precious things that are happening right now

I never have time for happily living in the present

Until now 🙂

Happy ending – joke for Thursday

Zen, you look so angry and confused, what happened?

I am very angry with all this happy ending stories that we keep telling kids,

something like “… they get married and live happily ever after!”

Great! majority of the kids believe this, until one day they make their own fairy tales

2 under 2 year old toddlers crying, daddy is going to be late today, work is busy as ever

Alright, mom will do the drop off and pick up the kids,

Never mind the sleepless nights these days because one toddler got bad coughing at night and demand the whole family to join the night party

Some career progress and promotion is compromised because family priorities are on the plate

Zen is climbing up the life ladder and the big wind keeps blowing Zen backwards,

Then she keeps hearing this, never give up, keep on doing what you love,

It’s all become white noise in her ears, like blah blah blah …

Quiet day

It is necessary to have a quiet day for self relaxation and self reflection

It is a minimalist day amongst many maximalist days where you didn’t have time for yourself, and just busy with everything in life

It is a detox day to clean away all the sadness and burden in your head, to come out clean and fresh for new ideas and new days to come

A minimalist day when all you need to do is do nothing, plan nothing , just watch the day go by, or doing only things that bring love and happiness and self satisfaction

When the pace of life gets hectic, just one day to slow down, to look back and recharge the body and mind

In a hectic life, take a moment to stop and revaluate everything you have right now, what you want in the future and what you can leave behind

In a hectic life, there are moments when you can still find and enjoy the beauty of life ; and never forget that life is meant to be beautiful and for us to enjoy, not to suffer

Don’t forget to have a minimalist day once in a while
