The Relationship Between Human Happiness And The Mind
There are many things that happen to us in our daily lives. In the end, our happiness and unhappiness is determined by our mind. I believe that our happiness depends on this point. The state of our mind determines our happiness, and a harmonious mind leads to the greatest happiness.
What is it that is occupying your mind right now?
The feeling of unhappiness becomes stronger when worries about work and family, suffering in relationships, and uncertainty about the future come to mind over and over again. If such worries and anxieties are eliminated from your mind, you will feel lighter and more contented and at peace.
If your mind is prepared in such a way and the degree of harmony in your mind is high, you can say that you have returned to the original state of a child of God. How can we live in such a constant state of harmony of mind?
Control Our Breathing
The mind and body are closely connected. In other words, conditioning the physical body leads to conditioning the mind.
One simple fact is that if you control your breathing, you can control your mind. For example, when you have to give a presentation in front of many people or have a job interview, taking deep breaths will help you relax and calm down.
Not only when you are in dire straits, but also when you are overwhelmed by various worries and anxieties, you can regain your calmness by consciously controlling your breathing.
Restoring A Round Mind
A high level of harmony in the mind can be easily understood by imagining a round mind. A round mind is like a circle.
When you are worried, anxious, fearful, angry, or hateful, what does your mind look like? It’s not round, it’s sharp, it’s bumpy, it’s not round, it’s broken up, it’s rough, it’s rough, it’s wavy. To restore such a messy state of mind to a round mind is to restore harmony.
For example, many people get depressed when someone says something unpleasant to them. And they feel hurt. It’s hard to get out of it when it starts bothering you.
The important thing to do then is to come up with your own answers.
“Why did the person say what they did?”
“Was there something wrong with me?”
“If it was my fault, I should apologize to the other person.”
“If it wasn’t my fault, I’ll find something else to cause it.”
“Maybe the person was just in a bad mood.”
“Maybe something unfortunate happened in their personal life.”
In this way, you will be able to make a break in yourself.
To answer is to clarify or modify your thoughts, ideas, and ways of being in such a way. It is about calming the ripples of the mind. It means to calm the waves of the mind.
The longer the surging state of mind lasts, the stronger the suffering and the more unhappy we become. The important thing is to change your mind, how quickly you can get back to normal after the upheaval.
In order to do this, we need to be able to pass on the other person’s words. “That’s one way of thinking.”
Look At Yourself From The Sky
An important part of getting answers to your worries and concerns is to look at the problem from a higher perspective.
For example, one way to do this is to look at yourself from above the sky. Assuming that you are up in the sky, what do you think when you look at your problems from such a high place? If you think about it carefully, you may think that it is a small problem. If you take a higher perspective, you will not be swept away by your emotions, you will be able to see your surroundings better, and it will be easier to sublimate your problems into positivity.
It is important to look back at your thoughts and actions objectively, as if you were a third party filled with good thoughts. If you find yourself to be the cause of the problem, it is important that you immediately change your ways, and learn from it and apply it in the future.
In any case, it is important to find something positive in our troubles. It is not advisable to solve them with ego or your own desires. You should avoid blaming others or taking out your frustrations on them, because such negativity will cause your mind to become even rougher and more turbulent.
Attuning The Mind To The Harmony Of The Great Universe
This great Universe is largely harmonious and filled with an infinitely overwhelming degree of harmony.
As the round mind expands, it will be connected to the Universe, and as it melts into it, it will be in tune with the energy of love that fills the Universe. There is a will of God at work in the entire Universe that seeks to maintain harmony. If there is any disruption of harmony anywhere, the movement to balance it works like an automatic adjustment function, maintaining the overwhelming harmony of love.
As each individual is a part of the Universe itself, we are connected to the entire Universe through our mind. By connecting directly to the energy of God’s love in the Universe and tuning in to it, the mind naturally harmonizes with it, and peace of mind is restored.
For example, one way is to look at pictures of stars and nebulae in space and let your consciousness melt into them. If you feel as if you are part of the Universe, standing in the midst of all these stars, you will be filled with a great sense of peace and happiness.
There is also the law of action-reaction. If you emit disharmonious vibrations that are contrary to love, you will receive disharmonious vibrations as a reaction, which will disturb your mind and cause irritation and suffering. This means that what you send out comes back to you.
