The 10 thieves of your energy
We live in such a hectic time that our energy usually dissipates in innumerable tasks and unimportant relationships. So much so that we run out of energy to use what is really worth.
That’s why I thought it was appropriate to highlight these points of the Dalai Lama that allow us to identify and put in your place the thieves of your energy.
But first I would like to introduce the character. Many people believe that Dalai Lama is the name of a person when in reality it is a title.
In principle, Dalai Lama is the life title, designated by religious election, which corresponds to the leader of the Tibetan government in exile and spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism.
You may wonder why there is a Tibetan government in exile, well because in 1950 China invaded Tibet and displaced its government.
The government in exile is lobbying politically for the liberation of Tibet or at least enjoying greater autonomy like that of Hong Kong and preserving the Tibetan culture.
Of course Hollywood was not going to be deprived of doing some films on this subject (maybe you remember Seven years in Tibet or Kundun), and numerous documentaries and television programs.
The current Dalai Lama is Tenzin Gyatso, born on July 6, 1935 and is the 14th person to carry the title, the first one in 1391.
In 1989 he received the Nobel Peace Prize, which enhanced his worldwide notoriety.
In March 2011, the Dalai Lama resigned from political office, remaining only as spiritual and religious leader. After all, Dalai Lama is generally translated as “ocean of wisdom.”
1- Let go of people who only arrive to share complaints, problems, disastrous stories, fear and judgment of others. If someone looks for a bucket to throw their garbage, try not to be in your mind.
2- Pay your bills on time. At the same time, it charges who owes you or chooses to let you go, if it is already impossible to charge you.
3- Keep your promises. If you have not complied, ask yourself why you have resistance. You always have the right to change your mind, to apologize, to compensate, to re-negotiate and offer another alternative to an unfulfilled promise; although not as usual. The easiest way to avoid not fulfilling something you do not want to do is to say NO from the beginning.
4- Eliminate as much as possible and delegate those tasks that you do not prefer to do and devote your time to doing the ones you do enjoy.
5- Give yourself permission to rest if you are in a moment that you need it and give yourself permission to act if you are in a moment of opportunity.
6- Pull, collect and organize, nothing takes more energy than a messy space full of things from the past that you no longer need.
7- Give priority to your health, without the machinery of your body working to the maximum, you can not do much. Take some breaks.
8- Face the toxic situations that you are tolerating, from rescuing a friend or family member to tolerating negative actions of a couple or a group; Take the necessary action.
9- Accept. It is not resignation, but nothing makes you lose more energy than resisting and fighting against a situation that you can not change.
10-Forgive, let go of a situation that is causing you pain, you can always choose to leave the pain of memory.
