What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As many professional women in this modern age, I was desperately trying to succeed in my career as a professional in my field. However, while juggling with all my work commitments and home responsibilities, a few years ago, I experienced a serious injury that significantly affected my daily functioning. Suddenly, my life became a real nightmare … Due to this injury I could not do anything on my own. I couldn’t do any of the domestic responsibilities such as cooking, washing dishes, ironing, and so on. The only thing I could do was to sit down alone in silence, and contemplate my life…
This unfortunate event was a turning point in my life. I realised that I had to make some lifestyle changes, and to start living my life in another way. Gradually, I learned how to create a harmony between the physical, mental and spiritual aspects in my life. While living my life in this way, I was able to experience deep inner peace, joy and serenity daily, and live a truly purposeful life…
Wanting to share this wisdom with as many people as possible, I wrote the book “Another Way of Living: A Journey to Infinite Peace, Immense Joy, and True Freedom’’ that was published recently. This book offers readers another way of living in this modern world – a life filled with peace, joy and abundance on a daily basis, a way to a truly meaningful and abundant life.
Enjoying Life Fully
"The most important thing is to enjoy your life-to be happy-it’s all that matters. "
Q: How can we enjoy our life fully and experience joy daily?
A: The ultimate goal in life is to be content within and, to experience inner peace, immense joy and everlasting happiness on a consistent basis.
Hence, to enjoy your life fully, each day you need to identify your own needs in the present moment, and aim to meet those needs as soon as you become aware of them. Remember, your immediate needs are your priority, and your main task in life is to fulfil them.
If you don’t act on your needs in the moment, you will frequently experience feelings of dissatisfaction and frustration. These negative feelings inside you can resurface at any moment when you are in close contact with other people around you, transferring your negative energy to them. This in turn can cause relationship problems, conflicts, and feelings of disconnection from others. At the same time, this negative energy will build up in your body over time, interfering with the functioning of the organs of your body as well as your emotional well-being. This negative energy, if not disposed of properly, may eventually cause development of a physical or mental illness, an accident, or even an injury.
It is important to understand that all these negative experiences are the result of the negative thoughts and feelings arising in you when your immediate needs are not being met. Therefore, it is important to re-examine the way you have been living so far. You may start by asking yourself the following questions: “Who knows the most what my needs are at any given moment?” “Whose responsibility is to meet my own needs?” “Who is creating my day?” No one can know better than you what your needs are at any given moment and how to fulfil them. Only you can create your day. Only you can design your life. Only you can write your own destiny!
To enjoy every single moment of your life, it is vital that you bring full awareness to your needs every moment of your life. The better you are at identifying and satisfying your immediate needs, the more content you will feel. Considering that throughout a day, as frequently as possible, you need to focus all your attention on yourself. And after that peaceful period of a few moments, you may ask yourself, “What do I really need now?” This is a powerful question as it focuses all your attention on your immediate needs, bringing you into the present moment.
Throughout the day, you might have different unfulfilled needs. For example, your need at any given moment might be one of the following:
• body: hunger, thirst, physical activity, massage, etc.
• mind: reading, writing, painting, drawing, playing music, etc.
• spirit: spending time alone in silence, connecting with nature, having a spiritual conversation with a friend, reading spiritual books, listening to relaxing music, practicing yoga, meditation, etc. • social: spending quality time with your beloved, going out and meeting new people, having a coffee with a friend, etc.
Once you can recognise and address your immediate need at any given moment of the day, its fulfilment will bring immediate satisfaction to you. In this way, you will learn to live in the present, and to enjoy each moment of your life fully.
Achieving a Peaceful State of Mind
"Nobody can bring you peace but yourself."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Q: How can I stop being unceasingly active throughout a day and begin to feel more calm and peaceful?
A: First you need to ask yourself the following question: “Why am I constantly active throughout a day?” To answer this question, it is important to understand that whenever the human mind is dissatisfied, it will constantly seek to be engaged in any kind of activity. Therefore, whenever you feel restless or unhappy inside yourself, you will always have an ardent desire to be involved in any activity regardless of the demands of a situation, or your actual needs. By being constantly involved in any activity, you temporarily forget all your problems, concerns, and fears. Hence, the urge to be constantly engaged in any activity throughout a day is to distract yourself, and escape from your present life situation.
Instead of being constantly active, you need to learn how to respond to the situations in life in a calm and peaceful manner. It is important to understand that there is a difference between feeling the urge to be constantly involved in any kind of activity and responding to the demands of a situation. The difference is that the urge to be busy all the time arises from a restless and discontented mind, whereas spontaneous action arises from a peaceful state of mind. Hence, to achieve a more relaxed state of mind, you need to cultivate self-awareness.
To increase your level of self-awareness, you need to observe yourself carefully throughout a day. Then, whenever you become engaged in any kind of activity, you need to ask yourself, “What is the purpose of this particular activity? Why I have chosen this activity right now? Do I really enjoy doing this?” When you try to answer these questions, you need to pay attention to your own feelings and bodily sensations. If you identify any unpleasant feelings or uncomfortable physical sensations in yourself, this might mean that you have satisfied the need to be engaged in that particular activity. When you arrive at this moment, you need to stop for a few moments and do nothing but enjoy your own presence. In this way, you will connect with your inner centre, with the peaceful essence of your existence. Then, from this state of mental stillness you can focus all your attention and energy on the next activity that needs to be done. Remember that by achieving this relaxed state of mind more frequently between your daily activities, you will be able to preserve a lot of mental energy throughout a day. Then you can use this energy to perform a spontaneous action with your whole being and achieve the results that you desire more efficiently, when the need for such action arises.
"We need to be aware of the suffering, but retain our clarity, calmness and strength so we can help transform the situation."
-Thich Nhat Hanh
Q: Is suffering a necessary requirement for happiness?
A: To answer this question first you need to understand the real cause of suffering. Suffering is only and always the result of not accepting the present moment as it is, of not accepting the current life situation. It is the refusal of any unpleasant emotions. It is a rejection of the reality, the denial of life, and the denial of the natural laws. Suffering is an indication that you are resisting the reality.
It is important to understand that suffering is not a prerequisite for happiness. Suffering is a fruit of a distorted thinking that is not attuned to reality, whereas happiness is a result of an enlightened mind that can see the reality. In fact, both suffering and happiness are the interpretations of the reality, of how you look at it. So in essence, you are the creator of your own suffering, as well as the creator of your own happiness.
Each of us is able to overcome suffering and achieve a permanent state of inner tranquillity and joy if we are willing to increase our self-awareness and expand our consciousness.
The important question is this: “Do you want to escape from suffering for a limited period of time, or do you want to be free from it?”
