One way to deal with the holiday rush is to remember what is important. One way to accomplish this is to have a mindful practice in your life. As a student of spirituality and Buddhism, I am always looking for ways to increase serenity and peace, while connecting with Buddha.
There are five simple daily tasks that can be completed every day. The first step is to create a daily meditation practice, creating an altar to meditate in front of every morning. Secondly, one thing that reflects Buddha’s teachings is to make kindness and compassion a top priority in your everyday life. The third step is to be mindful of everything around you. Next, it is important to recite the metta prayer. The main point of this prayer is “May all things be happy, well, peaceful and free.” With this prayer, positive energy and good wishes are being sent to all beings. Fifth, just like yoga, Buddhism sees everyone as interconnected as one. It should be a practice to treat everyone equally with love.
As a yogi and unofficial Buddhist, I use the five above principles in my daily life to cultivate a sense of peace, love and happiness in all areas of my life.
