Before starting this post, I would like to ask a simple question. What do you understand by the title above? What is enlightenment?
If you think that enlightenment is worshipping god all the time, Leaving all the worldly desires, Meditating throughout the life without food and water and performing tough rituals, Then you are wrong.
Elightenment is actually burning the wick of your soul, bringing all your force together in your control, and gaining your 100 percent potential in everything. Its just about getting out of the old rat-race in which all the ordinary people run.
The richest and the popular people have this ability. And trust me, they are the true ‘enlightened’ persons.
Earning life is far better than earning money, as with all of your money, you can’t even rent a piece of life. But through a little piece of life, you can attain happiness – The thing far precious than tonnes of diamonds and jewels.
Enlightenment means a proper balance of body, mind and soul. If this state is attained one reaches its full potential.
Controlling your body and maintaining it is very simple and can be done through some exercise and a healthy diet. Controlling soul is a little bit hard, but can be achieved through yoga and meditation.
But controlling mind is a big deal. It is what this is all about. By my views here are some steps to control it :
- Control your anger: The first and the toughest problem is controlling your anger. The first problem that comes in it is you make it your behaviour. This is an natural and common problem and has many solutions, like reading good books. The second problem: if you get angry rarely but you get very furious. What you can do is change its way. For example, if your boss scolds you to be late and you think of leaving the job, hold it right there. Think it like this,’ Who is he to scold me. I’ll prove myself to him by coming 30 minutes beforehand.’
