Accept A Situation As It Is! Don‘t Resist, Don‘t Judge, Don‘t Inhere!

Today, I stum­bled upon this inter­view with molecular-biologist-turned-Buddhist-monk, Matthieu Ricard (in Ger­man). A few years ago, I lis­tened to his famous Altru­ism and although my favorite way of med­i­ta­tion is not focus­ing on a spe­cif­ic topic, s.a. love, or altru­ism, but try­ing not to think at all, I’m absolute­ly con­vinced by his gen­er­al approach of altru­ism. In his inter­view he demon­strates that he’s a very prac­ti­cal per­son: refer­ring to the Bud­dhist story of 500 peo­ple

Every situation is like it is. It's us who interprete it. A positive thinker knows 3 states of mind: Acceptance, Joy and Enthusiasm

The Positive States Of Mind — Acceptance, Joy And Enthusiasm

A few days ago I saw a photo of a burn­ing giant 2016 sym­bol on Twit­ter. For many of us there’s no need for expla­na­tion: this year’s major events seem­ing­ly jus­ti­fy to regard 2016 as a lost year. And from every sin­gle even­t’s per­spec­tive that may be true. Before, how­ev­er, let’s have a look at the pos­i­tive states of mind — accep­tance, joy, and enthu­si­asm. Should we real­ly burn 2016? Of course, not. Accep­tance I sug­gest
