Meditation is a methodology of familiarizing our mind with positive and peaceful ways of thinking. It also functions to identify, reduce, and abandon negative and harmful minds that cause unhappiness and agitation. Everyone can learn to meditate with confidence, because it is a skill that improves with practice.  Find the magical inner power within your own mind that will bring happiness and inner peace to the rest of your life.

A great relationship is not based on what you may receive from other. Such expectation is what often leads to conflict and discontent. Great relationships are based on what we can give to other. Such actions create a bond of trust and increases the scope and strength of our love. More than half of all adult relationships end up failing, because we find it easier to take from the relationship, than to give. Often such failures end up generating hostility and resentment and condition much of our life with negative attitudes. Learn some basic Buddhist understandings concerning relationships and avoid future misery.
