The wisdom of His Holiness, the Dalai Lama follow me around the world

The current incarnation of the Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, was born in 1935 and recognized as the 14th incarnation of the Dalai lama at the age of 2. In 1959, the Dalai Lama fled his home of Tibet after the Chinese put down an uprising in Tibet and attempted to assassinate him. He continues on in exile to this day.
The Dalai Lama has captivated people of all faiths from around the world with his message of joy, of peace, and of happiness. His Tibetan Buddhist teachings focus in on how to live a happy life, free of negativity. Many people look to him as a source of inspiration in what appear to be terribly turbulent times.
These are the 18 rules for living a happy life from Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama.
1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
3. Follow the three Rs: 1. Respect for self 2. Respect for others 3. Responsibility for all your actions.
4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
8. Spend some time alone every day.
9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
11. Live a good, honourable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.
12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
14. Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.
15. Be gentle with the earth.
16. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

I truly love Nr. 1, and will always keep it in mind. Followed by Nr. 17 and Nr. 18.

 

lots of love

Flight Germanwings

Ich verneige mich vor allen Opfern und deren bedauernswerten Angehoerigen, vor der Ungewissheit und dem Schmerz, vor den Passagieren, welche in bangen 8 min nicht wussten was passieren wird. Ich verneige mich in Respekt vor allen Leuten, die taeglich damit zu tun haben, tausende Flugzeuge zu fliegen und zu reparieren, tausende und Abertausende die trotz Aengste fliegen, und es ist wichtig, dass wir obwohl wir die Gesetze der Natur brechen, taeglich, minuetlich und stuendlich niemals den Respekt vor den Naturgesetzen verlieren. Und auch den Mut haben dagegen zu sprechen, wenn man den Respekt verliert, dass tausende Flugzeuge und ihre bewunderswerten Besatzungen sicher arbeiten. In Trauer – Dagmar

Good enough

Why It’s Healthier to Settle for Something that’s ‘Good Enough’

Olga Khazan from The Atlantic has made a compelling argument on why it’s good to settle. The idea goes against everything we’re been told by friends and motivational Twitter feeds: Never settle, they say. But Khazan argues that having so many choices is setting our expectations too high that we’ll ultimately be disappointed when we settle on what we think is best.

When psychologist Barry Schwartz released his book The Paradox of Choice: Why More is Less, it helped people understand why consumers have become so preoccupied in making decisions in all aspects of our lives. In his TED Talk, Schwartz says he gives out less homework than he used to, because his students are more preoccupied by all the choices available to them. Decisions over medical treatments to what kind of soda you should buy falls on the individual, and while this kind of autonomy over our own destinies can liberate us, it can also paralyze us.

Ten years since the book’s release, Khazan writes that it has only gotten worse:

“The rise of social media, he argues, has only heightened the agony of decision-making through phenomena like FOMO (fear of missing out).”

People become fearful that they don’t have the best job or the latest and greatest phone, resulting in a dissatisfaction with a product or decision that may suit you just fine.

“One of my favorite Schwartzisms is this: If you ever aren’t sure if you attended the very best party or bought the very best computer, just settle for ‘good enough.'”

Schwartz says that these “satisficers,” people who settle for “good enough,” are much better off than the “maximizers,” who constantly need to have the best. Better jobs and consumer electronics will continue to increase expectations, so when you finally do make a decision, Schwartz says:

“…it’s easy to imagine you could have made a different choice that would have been better. And what happens is this imagined alternative induces you to regret the decision you made, and this regret subtracts from the satisfaction you get out of the decision you made, even if it was a good decision.”

So, be able to be happy about something that’s “good enough.”

 

 

not sure if this is what I want form life.

there is a wise saying that goes

 

if you do not chose the best for you, the price you pay is, that the whole life you have to live with this decision.
