I believe every religion, philosophy, school of thought, way of life… has something to teach. I like to go into ideas with the mindset of “what can I take with me from this?”
So today, we’re going to take some lessons from Buddhism.
Without knowing much about Buddhism, it quickly started to positively affect my life, sometimes with something as simple as a quote. There are so many good ones:
“Be where you are; otherwise you will miss your life.”
“Remembering a wrong is like carrying a burden on the mind.”
“If you propose to speak always ask yourself, is it true, is it necessary, is it kind.”
There are just so many nuggets of wisdom that you can directly apply to basically every area of your life. If you’re a student of meditation, or you’re curious about it, it actually originates with the Hindu culture and Buddha was a Hindu.
So today we’re diving into the Buddhist teachings we can all benefit from, specifically with inner self talk, meditation and just processing our lives.
Our guest is Cynthia Kane. She’s the bestselling author of How to Communicate like a Buddhist, Talk to Yourself like a Buddhist, and How to Meditate like a Buddhist.
