Here are my quotes on stress management and stress free living:
The source of stress as well as joy lies inside you. Make the ultimate choice to be stress-free without any outside help.
Your conditioned, busy mind is the root cause of your stress. You are not born with this. You acquire it from your society as you grow up.
Logic is the ultimate asset we humans have.
Get rid of the filters created by your conditioned mind. Then, take a fresh look at your life with the lightning rod of logic
Question everything: with logic, not with emotions.
Emotional thinking is the basis of all emotional stress.
The past and future are mental abstractions, virtual and unreal. The present moment is the only real thing. Live in it if you want to live a real life.
Many people live a conditional life. In their mind, certain conditions have to be met before they will start living their life. That day never arrives, because they keep adding more and more conditions and goals.
Excessive thinking about the future is the major reason for fear, anxiety and panic attacks.
You can only solve a problem if it exists, but your busy mind creates a virtual problem and then it tries to take care of this phantom. How absurd!
Frustrations arise from expectations, which originate from your conditioned mind.
Most human interactions are actually based upon “conditioned minds interacting.” That’s why there is so much stress in our lives.
You can be free of your conditioned mind simply by observing it in action. Don’t hate it or you will make it stronger. Simply observing it is enough.
Human problems can be solved by humans only.
keep your mind where your body is: what you see, hear, taste, smell and touch. If it is not in your field of awareness, it is unreal for you at that moment.
Keep asking yourself two questions: “Is it happening right now, at this very moment, in my field of awareness?” and “What is happening right now, in my field of awareness?”
Better be late than unsafe! To be on time is one the major reasons for stress and accidents.
Concepts divide human beings and that is the basis of conflict and violence. True freedom from violence lies in freedom from concepts.
Concept is not reality and reality is not conceptual.
We all live in a conceptual world and mistakenly, take it for real.
Reality is all around you and inside you. It cannot be described because language itself is conceptual.
Age is a concept.
We always think in terms of a language. No language, no thinking.
Emotions come from thinking. No thinking, no emotions.
Space, Silence, Stillness-the Real Now that is always free of Stress.
Real Truth is always in front of your eyes. Rest is all fiction.
Out of sync with nature is the basis of all of the human problems, individually as well as collectively.
Treat others as life-forms, without any expectations in return.
Human spirit often stays in the grip of the human mind. That’s why there are so many stressed-out spirits.
Everyone wants to control others thinking and behavior, which is the basis of frustration, oppression and retaliation.
Be ware of the rat race humanity is in. It is every where: in schools, in offices, on the freeway.
If money makes you happy, then lack of money would make you sad, right!
If beauty makes you happy, then lack of beauty would make you sad, right!
If family and friends makes you happy, then loneliness would make you sad, right!
If success makes you happy, then failure would make you sad, right!
If fame makes you happy, then lack of fame would make you sad, right!
If health makes you happy, then disease would make you sad, right!
Following rules, etiquettes and manners rigidly is one of the reasons people develop cancer.
Being fearful is one of the reasons people develop autoimmune disorders.
Anger is one of the reasons people suffer from high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke.
Anger and Worries are two major reasons people develop memory loss.
Fear is the basis of worries. Seeking security in the future is the basis of fear.
You can have unbiased experience once you are free of the bias from the past.
Hate is a two-way traffic.
Help those who genuinely ask for your help, but don’t have any personal agenda.
A true scientist believes in what he sees, not what he has been told. Unfortunately, most so-called scientists believe in what they have been told.
There is always more than one side to a story.
Real peace starts from you.
Peace and violence are mutually exclusive.
Real peace cannot be enforced through wars.
Real peace is not just the absence of war.
The real world peace cannot be as long as humans are stuck in the concepts of religion, race, nationality…….
Your mind creates psychological age. Your body experiences physical and emotional age. But, underneath all this is Real You that is ageless.
Nudity doesn’t equate sexuality, except in the human world.
Sex is a natural act, except in the human world.
Sex is always for reproduction, except in the human world.
Nudity is the natural state of living, except in the human world.
Humans are one confused animal.
Humans got divided with the dawn of civilization, and they will continue to be divided until the end of civilization.
With a few exceptions, everyone feels special.
Don’t be a robot.
I don’t tell Nature what to do. Why? Because Nature does not listen to me. More importantly, Nature is much wiser than me.
Language is a product of human mind.
God does not listen to humans, because God did not create language; human mind did.
Real is Real and Virtual is Virtual. Never confuse one with the other.
Real “I” has no description.
Virtual “I” is a creation of description.
Real “God” has no description.
Virtual “God” is a creation of description.
Forms come and go: What stays is LIFE.
Everyone is in the grip of self-righteousness. That’s why there is so much stress on the planet.
