Life is much shorter than you think, so it's important that
you feel happy every day. Amidst the chaos of life, learning
how to manage your time, practice an optimistic attitude, or
appreciate what you have, is a way to live happily every
day. Learning how to live happily and how to create
happiness is not as difficult as some people think.
The happy creations as taught by Venerable One, are very
- A happy person is someone who knows how to make your life
come alive and thinks optimistically about all issues in
I really like the sayings of the venerable ones who often
Happiness is when you feel happy. The world does not change,
it always exists as it is with its own laws. Only people's
thinking about the world changes.
So the way to create peace and relaxation, the most
important thing is whether you yourself will change your way
of thinking or not. In fact, only your way of thinking about
the world changes. That is, you can control your thoughts
about life. Instead of complaining that your life is boring
and tasteless, appreciate and be grateful for the
interesting things life has given you. Instead of
complaining that your colleagues are lazy, work hard
yourself and you will get great achievements….
Every day a whole bunch of problems to worry about, from
food, clothes, rice, and money to health, and study... make
you feel depressed, stuck, and no longer have any energy.
Then you have to know how to craft your own happiness. First
of all, you must have the concept of happiness. The
definition of Happiness is different for each person. But
- Happiness is not a destination, but a journey you go
- That happiness is only complete when you have someone to
accompany you on the journey.
It's fate to meet each other, but it's also fate to not
meet. Meeting again is fate, parting is also fate. The Saha
world is vast and endless between coming and going, so
meeting or not meeting you doesn't have to be painful or
attached. So what is the secret to creating happiness?
Charlie Hogg once said:
- Everywhere in the world, in every nation, every family,
every person, there is always an argument for freedom. But
the heaviest is still the shackles in their minds.
Happiness lies in the heart. Nothing is happier than peace
of mind and nothing is more unhappy than torment in the
soul. Living on a pile of gold and tormenting all day is
like nothing. Many of you see the glamor on the outside but
don't see it in each person's mind:
- Some people appear happy on the surface because they are
hiding indescribable suffering.
- Some people are smiling on the outside, but there are
tears in their hearts.
- Some people are often exaggerated, but in reality, there
are many endless voids in spirituality...
But in fact, your own happiness and joy are not in the eyes
of others but in your own mind! So, what is a happy person?
You are happy because you are a good service, first to
yourself and then to your loved ones, and beyond that to the
whole human community. Always remember that you have two
- The dominant arm to help you,
- Non-dominant arm to help others after helping you.
Suffering people have very sad lives! Because the heartaches
are too big along with their livelihood, it is not easy for
their love story to grow and flourish. But in reality,
everyone wants to have sweet feelings.
You often get stuck in small things because your mind is not
clear, then you become weak, blind, and make wrong
decisions, so the old people say that being angry is too
foolish. Anger is a whirlwind that erases intelligence. You
can forget what you say, but what you say will leave the
listener's heart forever. Because the true value of giving
is not in the big or small gift but in the giver's heart.
- Met by predestined affinity, loved by debt, and separated
If you love someone, you will find them beautiful in every
way. However, life is very diverse. Sometimes you love
others but they don't love you back, there are people who
love you very much but you are indifferent to them. Each
person is an unknown, and the relationship between people is
like the evolution of the universe is extremely complicated.
Already in this physical world, there is always a collision:
- Physical collision,
- Clash of ideas,
- Emotional collision.
When people experience too much pain, people will become
calloused. You always deserve what you have from good to
bad. Because life is decided by you and no one else. So no
matter what you do, don't give up while you're still
healthy. No matter what happens, remember that life is fair.
So no matter who you hurt, in the long run, it's going to
hurt you back. You may not feel it right now, but it will
definitely move back and circle around you. Whatever you do
for others is also for yourself, what you make others go
through, you will definitely experience it later. Buddhism
teaches about cause and effect not to scare you, but to
remind you. This is the truth, whether you believe it or
not, it still exists and cannot be lost.
Coming to the Buddhist teachings is not about depositing
when you lose it, but about dealing with life properly.
Seeing through the impermanence of human life, you will
notice a lot of things that, although you see them as good
at first, will not be sustainable in the long run. Or a lot
of times when you fall into agonies that seem unbearable,
but then they pass quickly. Therefore, impermanence is the
best suggestion for life. It puts you in the fluctuating
circumstances of life that can be intellectually uplifting.
Therefore, it is true that studying and practicing according
to Buddhist teachings is to cultivate blessings and to have
a good life in the future, but in the present, it is to tame
one's own mind. You temporarily understand is to regulate
your body and mind in life. Many people just want to live a
long life, pray for no disease, pray for money, and have a
son, but come to the monastery. While there is nothing
contrary to the religious tradition of prayer, it is not a
good thing in the end. So, as a Buddhist, you have a
tradition of prayer, but you have to understand it
- Bowing is not just stooping, bowing down, but letting go
- Reciting the Buddha's name is not expressed in the number
of sounds but in the purity of the mind.
- Clasping hands is not only closing the hands but also
- Meditation is not sitting for so long that you can't get
up, but in the mind not being shaken by the outside.
- Joy is not in the radiant face but in the pleasure and
comfort in the heart.
- Purity is not in the abandonment of desires, but in the
state of mind that does not seek profit.
- Almsgiving is not just giving away material things but
sharing the heart of love.
- Believing in Buddhism is not learning knowledge but
There are many of you who, when eating, only specialize in
choosing what you love, staying at your favorite place,
making friends, and only accepting the person you like. So
once you meet something you don't like, there's no way to
accept it. In fact, the outside environment can't forever
give you happiness, only learning to adapt to the things you
don't like can you always have happiness!
Time will be the most accurate answer for true love. You
have eyes to see, ears to hear, limbs to work with, a head
to distinguish right from wrong, and a heart to love. There
are three ways to enrich your own heart:
- Smile with compassion,
scientific works have proven that you can actively change your
attitudes and behaviors to feel happier in life. Everyone
wants to be happy. That is why science has devoted much
attention to this topic in recent years. Many global happiness
reports have also been made. By this point, you understand
that certain behaviors, attitudes, and choices affect
happiness levels. Scientists believe that 40% of your
happiness is within your control, with the rest determined by
genetics and external factors.
This means you
can do many things to take control of your happiness. And here
are the principles of making happiness, summed up by
You need a
soul mate. When shared, joy will be doubled and sadness
halved, surely you are familiar with this saying. So choose
for yourself at least one soulmate among the people you meet
the joys and sorrows in life will help you to clear the
problems in your heart. Besides, your soulmate will always
care and encourage you when you have a sad story. On the
contrary, do not forget to treat your soul mate as they did
for you. Only then will the friendship last forever.
A large study
followed hundreds of men for more than 70 years and found that
the happiest and healthiest were the ones who built close
relationships with trusted, supportive friends each other.
2- Time is
better than money.
must learn to manage your time. This is extremely important
because you only have 24 hours in a day to divide equally
among all activities from work, rest, family care, or
self-care. If you do not know how to organize your time, your
life is easy to fall into chaos, overload, and stress.
The advice of
the venerable ones is to start planning and arranging your
time, deciding which issues in your life need more investment
show that happier people often wish for more time instead of
money. Even approaching life with this attitude helps people
feel more satisfied.
But it's still
good to have money. People's happiness also increases with
income level. The specific amount depends on where you live
and the cost of living there.
3- Should live
slower than time.
In the life of
society always follow an exaggeration hustle, and enlist. If
there is a time when you are in the midst of that whirlwind,
it is also a good idea to step away from the hustle once in a
while to review the good things in life that are recognized as
4- Live in
have also found that people who practice meditation feel
difficulties with others
According to a
study in the United States, you always feel happy after giving
money to others, even if it is only a small amount. Generosity
towards the less fortunate also makes your family life
stronger because both of you feel happy. Scientists confirm
that people who do charity always feel happy because they feel
their lives have more meaning than others.
6- Rejoice and
someone insults or talks badly behind your back makes you feel
insecure and angry. Think that you don't want to accept and
forgive them. When you do, your heart will be lighter and less
angry. It's a way to liberate yourself rather than listen all
day to see what people say about you.
Often, those of you who pay attention to other people's
words have a hard time forgiving your own mistakes. There
are times when you think about the past and do not forgive a
foolish action you have done and then you feel insecure,
guilty. This problem is most common in women.
Remember that in the past, as human beings, everyone made
mistakes at least once, even serious ones. But usually, past
mistakes cannot be corrected. So, instead of blaming
yourself, practice forgiving yourself and try not to make
the same mistake again. That way your heart will be much
7- Positive attitude
A person who is always thinking negatively and saying things
- I'm afraid if I can't do it, I'll fail...
That person is already 50% sure of failure. So if you
can't think optimistically on your own, you can talk to
happy people and learn from them their sense of humor and
confident way of speaking.
Add to your life dictionary phrases like:
- Grateful, cheerful, happy...
That way, you'll find positive emotions throughout the day.
Each of you has the ability to cope with adversity, but not
all realize it. A psychological investigation of patients on
dialysis in the UK in 2005 found that, despite having to
change blood up to three times a week, most patients still
feel good when they are told they only have to treatment for
another 3 months. But when asked to express their feelings
about dialysis, all healthy people admitted that they would
feel hopeless if they were in that situation.
Former Prime Minister Winston Churchill once said:
A pessimist sees difficulty in all opportunities, while an
optimist finds opportunity in every difficulty.
8- Sweat every day
Physical labor and regular exercise increase endorphins,
which are hormones that help create a good mood and reduce
pain, and burn cortisol, the hormone that causes feelings of
stress and pain, sad. Running, cycling, swimming, soccer, or
aerobic exercise all cause the brain to release endorphins
into the bloodstream. Therefore, to increase the
concentration of this stimulant, you just need to increase
the duration and intensity of exercise. That is the way to
behave for those who do not know how to cultivate, but for
Buddhists who know how to practice, bowing to the Buddha
every morning is the best.
9- Don't be afraid of old age
Maybe you have had a lot of difficulties, so you can see
black or gray everywhere you look. Train yourself in a pink
way of thinking so that you balance your mental state. A
survey of 2 million people in 80 countries in January 2008
found that depression is a fairly common psychological
condition among people in their forties. But as you pass
that age, your level of life satisfaction for the most part
will increase over time. The older we get, the more we know
how to get rid of the negative elements in life to focus on
things that can bring joy. In general, old people always
learn to be more satisfied with what they have than young
10- Stop whining about life!
Have you ever started and ended a day tired and stuck? Or
worry about food, rice, money, health situation, work ...
make you feel depressed and have no energy at all?
I have a friend who complains every day that:
- My work is not favorable at all, My colleagues are always
lazy, Life is so boring, Why am I not as lucky as rich
And as a result, every time people see him, people feel
depressed and tired.
Any of you have grueling problems to deal with, but whining
about them is by no means a good solution to all problems.
making happiness is very simple, nothing is as difficult as
some people think. Of course, the world you live in is not a
perfect world. So there are good days and bad days. You just
need to know how to create peaceful happiness and you need to
learn to accept the fact that things may not go according to
plan, and that's fine. Instead of trying to change the things
you cannot change, focus your energy on changing the things
within your control.
Indeed, if you
cannot achieve happiness in some high position, you can pick
up a nail in the road so that it does not have a chance to
puncture the wheels of passersby. Or walking an old man's hand
across the street also makes you feel much happier. Because
happiness sometimes begins with the smallest and simplest
things in life. So in your quest to find a way to create
happiness, you must always keep it in mind. Live on life:
Non-competition is compassion,
- Not arguing
- Not hearing
or seeing is purity,
- No rush,
hurry is freedom,
- Not being
greedy is giving,
- To cut off
evil is to do good.
mistakes is repentance,
- Humility is
worshiping the Buddha,
- To see
enough is to let go,
- The benefit
of others is the benefit of oneself.
By doing so,
you know how to create happiness.
