“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.” ― Dalai Lama


Life is about learning and understanding. It’s about knowing what you want out of life and figuring out how to get what you want. It’s ultimately about choices. So it’s essential to make informed choices. It’s crucial to identify the things in your life that bring you pleasure and pain. It’s critical to identify these things so you can begin to work towards maintaining and increasing the things in your life that bring you peace, pleasure and satisfaction, and decreasing the things in your life that cause you pain, sadness, and resentment.

Nobody has more control over their life experience than themselves. So every individual must take matters into their own hands and create the life that they want. This process begins with identifying what things in your life influence you in positive ways and what things in your life influence you in negative ways. Then it is a matter of reducing the effects of the negative influences in your life and increasing the effects of the positive influences in your life. There is no magical pill that will improve your life, despite what pharmaceutical companies tell you.

The single most powerful thing that can be used to improve your life is your mind. Your state of mind is the most important and powerful tool you will ever have which is why it is absolutely essential to clear your mind of negativity and populate your mind with positivity. This is the most effective and powerful thing anyone can do to improve their lives. Only with a clear mind and conscience will an individual be able to have excellent mental health and the ability to achieve their full potential.

When an individual is able to achieve their full potential the world becomes a better place. It is only through the elevation of consciousness that an individual can realize and achieve their full potential so this accomplishment is truly beneficial to all humankind. An individual who has elevated their consciousness to a high level is able to achieve whatever else they want to because they will not be distracted by things that do not help them move towards their goals and dreams.

Individuals with elevated consciousness have achieved a level of enlightenment. They are aware of everything around them and they understand the world they live in. They are aware of their actions and the impacts of their lifestyles. And they can live happily with very little material belongings. This allows them to be able to live more socially and environmentally responsible lifestyles which limits any negative impacts their actions may have on other people, other life forms, and the ecosystems we depend on for our survival.

Enlightened ones benefit humankind in many ways but the greatest impacts they have may be through sharing their knowledge with others and being excellent role models. They provide an excellent example of what a responsible global citizen should be like. Enlightened ones understand the pain and suffering that so many people in the world struggle with, they understand what are the biggest challenges facing humankind, and they dedicate their lives to serving humankind and helping to find solutions to the many issues in the world.

One can only hope that there are enough enlightened ones on our amazing planet to solve all of our most difficult challenges.
