Every generation speaks about undefined times. Born in perplexity, living in perplexity, we pass on in perplexity. By living in perplexity we bend perplexity to our will so that we can reach goals with a sense of fulfillment. We live successfully by rising above our tensions. We can do this effectively if we practice the art of mental and spiritual relaxation by forgiving.
We must forgive others, with no sense of censure. A clean, clear slate – not forgiveness on the installment plan. I love you today but can’t stand the sight of you tomorrow – that is not forgiveness. A difficult habit to learn, but worth combats for.
The next step is forgiving yourself for your mistakes. Another difficult task, Forget the blunders of yesterday and make it a habit to live fully today. To blunder may be a human failing, but to forgive is an achievement. Shakespeare said, “To forgive is divine”. Be human and achieve your fulfillment as a human being.
Then keep to yourself, not with someone else. Trying to copy others simply forces you to play second swindle. Remember, you can’t be someone else without tension. Every day you must try to make your self-image grow; this you can do.
Finally, see yourself at your best. Stop concentrating on your worst. You are your first terrific enemy when you suffering yourself with feelings of frustration every day. You are your best when you practice confidence every day. You have a choice; so select cleverly. Remember, you must forget yesterday thro’ substitution: Think and work toward your personal goal. The more you think of reaching your present goal, the less time you will have for the worries and heartaches of yesterday.
There are many classes for relaxation. The more effective combat stress is, first we need to start the body’s natural relaxation reaction. You can do this by practicing relaxation techniques like deep breathing, visualization, meditation, and yoga, or by performing rhythmic exercise, such as running, cycling, or mindful walking. These activities in our life will help to reduce every day’s stress and helps to boost your energy and attitude. It also helps to stay calm in the face of life’s unexpected events.
