YOUR LIFE A-Z: BUDDHISM
This is not about the difference between BUDDHISM and Zen. This is about building on one practice and adding additional information in order that you develop spiritual muscle this year as well as psychological and physical muscle. The TWENTY-MINUTE coach is about the body, mind, and spirit connection. I do not believe it is possible to be whole without the trinity of wholeness present of body, mind, and spirit. BUDDHISM talks about the eight fold path, which is a blueprint for living your best life,and can easily be incorporated into the action of the TWENTY-MINUTE COACH. The eight-fold path covers Right Understanding; Right Thought; Right Speech;Right Action; Right Livelihood’; Right Effort; Right Mindfulness; and Right Connection.
The good news is that it always starts with self. If you are not in the eight fold path by being Right with yourself,then you are off balance and will not be able to live outwardly right with others. You must be in Right Connection with yourself first and these daily reflections are teaching you how to tune into yourself, your heart, and your life in ways that you never thought of before. So, practice Compassion and Connection with yourself first and all things will fall into place so that you can have a peaceful existence with others. Don’t be scared of BUDDHISM. Look at BUDDHISM as a philosophy for living. To understand more pick of up Pema Chodron’s book, The Places that Scare You.
