After a 3-day silence retreat, I wrote a few simple guidelines for myself. See, if this help you. It certainly has helped me!

1. Have always all your senses open. Enjoy sights, sounds, smell and feeling you encounter.

2. Try to solve each problem when you experience them. Don’t procrastinate or move them forward. They will not macigally dissappear.

3. Meditate daily. Even 5 minutes is enough.

4. Take care of your diet. You are what you eat. listen to your body. It will tell, what is good for you!

5. Make every step a perfect one. You can call this walking meditation, if you want. But try to concentrate on every step tou take. And I mean literally!

6. Pay attention to your composure and ergonomics. You appear and feel like you know what you are doing and appear strong.

7. Relax actively every day. Again, even 5 minutes means wonders.

8. Smile with your eyes, when you meet people. You appear attentive and easy to approach. Try it!

9. Don’t burn any bridges! Your reputation is all you have in the end.



True happiness is… to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future.

Most of the people are waiting, living conditionally. When summer comes…when I get a job…when I have more time…when I have more money.

You have all you need right now. You will never live up to your expectations.

Face it!

Now is all you ever get.

Expecting is the greatest impediment to living. In anticipation of tomorrow, it loses today.
