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.




It is essential to understand pain and its place in your life. You can not battle against pain, rather you should live with a relationship with it.

It is not master of your life, neither you can ignore it But you can choose your reaction to it.

It is part of your life, if you are a pain chronic. But it must not consume your every hour.


Life, if well lived, is long enough.

Life, like a story, depends not of its length, but its goodness. And like in any play, it depends how well we act.

So, pay attention to what you do at this moment, it is all that counts in the end.
