Philosophy of life
All that matters is kindness
With the exception of great suffering, enjoy every moment ... by deciding to enjoy, not to maximize or analyze
I can be at peace internally despite external conditions.
Others behavior is a reflection of their internal mental space. Negative emotion directed toward me is a reflection of inner pain. I can observe that pain, have empathy for it, and deflect it away from my emotional space.
We are the collective set of beliefs, fears, and values created by memories. What is your rule system? What are your limiting beliefs?
I am not my thoughts. I can observe my thoughts - deciding whether to accept and strengthen them, or not to believe them.
I do not have to ‘do’ anything, for everything to be ‘ok’
We will always have “problems”. “Trading in” problems is the important concept. (Ex. Now instead of not having a car to get work, I have to think about car insurance and maintenance - this is especially true of “privilege problems”)
Live your own life, not someone else’s.
