with Joanna Cielen


When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development. Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind. Therefore, if we want to be happy all the time and to be free from problems, we must develop and maintain a peaceful mind.

True success in life has nothing to do with our accumulation of possessions, wealth, or status. Real success is becoming a loving, kind, moral, and compassionate person. Such a person gains both admiration, respect, and loyalty in this life, but will also create the causes for much greater good fortune in future lives. Moreover, these wholesome qualities are actual causes and conditions for both temporary and ultimate happiness. Enter the path to a better self today!
