Yoga Today – How to Keep Your Mind Peaceful

From the sutras (yoga text) Cultivate attitudes of friendliness towards the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous and disregard towards the wicked. In this you will find peace of mind.

Even if you do nothing else, but apply these to your daily life you will achieve serenity. Everyone wants to be happy. The four keys to happiness are friendliness, compassion, delight and disregard.

Today we are going to focus on friendliness. When you encounter happy and prosperous people be friendly. Do not waste your time being jealous. Jealousy only serves to disturb your mind. Look upon happy fortunate people and wish that comfort for everyone. Make those people your friends and you too will find happiness and prosperity.

 Example : When one country is doing well and  a neighboring country is not there is jealousy and a desire to go to war and take from or ruin the other country. But wouldn’t friendly exchange be a better way? Open up the economic doors, trade with each other and create prosperity for all?

Close your eyes and think of someone you know who is doing very well and who is happy. Bless them.

So when you see happy prosperous people bless them and make them your friends.

Everyone wants happiness- be friendly, remove jealousy and find peace of mind. In this everyone prospers.
