Discussion in 'Hippies' started by Wolfman's Brother, Jul 23, 2013.

  1. I have found this life lessons on the internet from various sources and I picked the best ones. Enjoy :sunny:

    1.Often those who aren’t the easiest to love are the ones who need it the most.

    2.Money is not the root of all evil, fear is.

    3.The secret to happiness is the acceptance of yourself.

    4.Heaven and hell exist here and now, within your own mind.

    5.Music is one of the most supreme expressions of life. It is art in it’s most transitory form. It is gone within an instant, and therefore, extremely precious.

    6.Follow your gut, you’ll thank yourself later.

    7.Never let an argument last, never hold a grudge, it will make your heart heavy.

    8.Be grateful for this moment, it is all there is.

    9.The source of most of your frustrations and anxiety are the result of living in the future, or the past.

    10.Spend time alone with yourself every day.

    11.Always go with yourself, never against yourself.

    12.You have to be your own best friend.

    13.If you don’t like what someone else says to you, you can walk away. But if you don’t like what you say to yourself, you can’t walk away. Therefore, if you’re going to be with yourself all the time, you might as well be nice to yourself.

    14.The truth shall indeed set you free.

    15.The biggest lie is the lie of your imperfection.

    16.Being kind is more important than being right.

    17.Cherish those that you love, you never know if you’ll see them again.

    18.Love is the supreme expression of life, it is the essence and ground of all creation.

    19.Believing in yourself is the greatest gift you can give yourself.

    20.The best investment you can make, is in yourself.

    21.Sometimes the best answer is silence.

    22.Love and compassion can heal the deepest wounds.

    23.Your perception of others is a reflection of your own reality.

    24.This moment is your life.Your life is between now and your next breath.So live each moment in full, in kindness and peace, without fear and regret

    25. A lifetime isn’t very long.This is your life, and you’ve got to fight for it. Fight for what’s right. Fight for what you believe in. Fight for what’s important to you.Whatever you still need to do, start doing it today

    26.Failures are only lessons. So never regret anything that has happened in your life; it cannot be changed, undone or forgotten. Take it all as lessons learned and move on with grace.

    27.You are your most important relationship.Happiness is when you feel good about yourself without feeling the need for anyone else’s approval. You must first have a healthy relationship with yourself before you can have a healthy relationship with others

    28.Smile at people who look like they are having a rough day. Be kind to them. Kindness is the only investment that never fails. And wherever there is a human being, there’s an opportunity for kindness. Learn to give, even if it’s just a smile, not because you have too much, but because you understand there are so many others who feel like they have nothing at all.

    30.You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you learn. You’re human, not perfect. You’ve been hurt, but you’re alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the bend.

    31. Look at the circles below. The black circles represent our relative life experiences. Mine is larger because I am older and have experienced more in my lifetime. The smaller red circles represent a negative event in our lives. Assume we both experienced the same exact event, whatever the nature. Notice that the negative event circles are the same size for each of us; but also notice what percentage of the area they occupy in each of the black circles. Your negative event seems much larger to you because it is a greater percentage of your total life experiences. I am not diminishing the importance of this event; I simply have a different perspective on it. What you need to understand is that an overwhelmingly painful event in your life right now will one day be part of your much larger past and not nearly as significant as it seems.[​IMG]

    32.Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

    33.Life is too short not to enjoy it.

    34.Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.

    35.Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.

    36.Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

    37.Get rid of anything that isn’t useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

    38.Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

    39.No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

    40.What other people think of you is none of your business.

    41.Time heals almost everything. Give Time time.

    42.All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

    43.Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

    44.Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you think you need.

    45.Doing anything specifically to impress people is stupid.People are impressed by those who aren’t trying to impress them and are comfortable in themselves and social and interesting.

    46.Make Your Own Rules.Life often doesn’t make sense,you have to make up rules as you go

    47.Embrace Your Weirdness.To act any other way, to be any other person, is an option that never even should eneter yout head

    48. Nothing risked, nothing gained. If you find yourself feeling miserable about something like your job, JUST QUIT. You will make it work for yourself. You will unleash your inner-hustler.

    49.You don’t need everyone to like you.When people don’t like you, nothing actually happens. The world does not end. You don’t feel them breathing down your neck. In fact, the more you ignore them and just go about your business, the better off you are.”

    50.Awareness is the most precious kind of freedom.This is yet another reason why minimalism is so appealing to so many people. It removes many of the obstructions and allows us to focus on what’s important. Minimalism is a tool to rid ourselves of superfluous excess in favor of a meaningful life, it is a tool to take a seemingly intricate and convoluted world, cluttered with its endless embellishments, and make it simpler, easier, realer.

    51.Goals aren’t as important as we think. Try working without them for a week. Turns out, you can do amazing things without goals. And you don’t have to manage them, cutting out on some of the bureaucracy of your life. You’re less stressed without goals, and you’re freer to choose paths you couldn’t have foreseen without them.

    52.The moment is all there is. All our worries and plans about the future, all our replaying of things that happened in the past — it’s all in our heads, and it just distracts us from fully living right now. Let go of all that, and just focus on what you’re doing, right at this moment. In this way, any activity can be meditation.
  2. I completely agree with everything on this list
  3. Yep... You know what... I'm sure I have read them before but they are wonderful. As simple and simplistic as they may seem they are actually beautiful and a great guide as how to live life and TRULY be living during that life. I don't have ink for the printer right now ... otherwise I really think I'd be printing these out and hanging them up on the wall somewhere... Instead I think I'm going to work on them by hand with different craft supplies to make them into a great collage type thing and put on the wall.. because those are already the things I try to do every day- how I try to live my life and it makes me happy to read them and remember what life is about and how to have a life worth living. So, gonna get started just now I think (in a min.) on starting that... anyways, yea, I esp. like numbers- 1, 4, 16, 17, 18, 21, 23, 25, 26, 30, 32, 34, 35, 37, 39, 40!!!!, 42, 43, 45, 49, 50 and 52...
    and I think to save myself some time and save my hand some aches n pains I will just use those (not that they're all not good) to make my crafty little wall project. :D
