Eastern philosophy that I learned in Thailand that can make you a better person but you have to own it and follow it 24 seven.
- Do not destroy life.
- Do not take what is not given you.
- Do not commit adultery.
- Tell no lies and deceive no one.
- Do not become intoxicated. It’s not realistic in the western world but alcohol should never be taken even in celebration. If you want to be the best but that as an individual choice.
- Eat temperately and not at all in the afternoons. This does not apply if you have an eating disorder. If you have no eating conditions that are harmful. I have been trying a routine of intermediate fasting.
This is probably the hardest one for people to do specially when it comes to a loved one or something you have no control over
Worrying is a waste of time because worrying itself is your mind’s attempt to deal with an imaginary future situation. Since you can only deal (cope) with an event that is happening now, in the present, it’s a waste of time to attempt to feel better by thinking about what may or may not happen in the future.
