Ten Principles That Help Us Lead a Beautiful Life.

By Krish K. Madembeth

 Lead a Beautiful Life !

Seek to embrace life in its entirety by living blissfully, authentically,  and by being happy, here and now.

The following 10 principles help lay the foundation and guide the towards the path of a beautiful life.

These principles sound very simple and generic in nature but the real challenge arises when those thoughts are put to practice in soul and spirit with all honesty.

1. Stick to the core principles of truth come what may. 

"Winning and loosing does not decide the worth of any individual, but sticking to one's principles makes the difference." 

Stick to the core principles of truth, come what may.  

Just think for a moment of all the people you really valued in your life, and the real  reason you valued them the most in the first place. Because, they stood for truth and lived a real life.

The realness that means a lot to you and thus this is the number one principle.

Standing up to truth is no small deed. It's the ultimate. -PsyYoga.org

The biggest challenges and obstacles that humanity has faced so far dotted in human history as bright spots with examples of exemplary people who stood for truth  and overcome the challenges thrown at them sometimes needed sacrifices to the extend of giving up their lives to stand for the truth. In order to lead in the right way and emerge victorious for both themselves and for humanity. 

2. Extend comradeship and display fair and healthy competition

Though the statement seems to be a general in nature, its not easy as it seems and is the root cause of most problems that not only individuals face but nations too.

Though Darwin postulated "Survival of the fittest" and "Struggle for existence". The reality we see in today is that  it's gone a few steps ahead of what Darwin has said.

Greed has taken over the hearts and minds of people. The greed to over accumulate, to control, to grab all, has massacred all the goodness humanity had churned up over the centuries.  

Competition is inevitable, its necessity in todays world to survive, to flourish. No doubt about that. But , cut throat competition and unmindful disruption of businesses that affects livelihood is the problem. Excessive exploitation of  human vulnerability and over exploitation of natural resources, uncontrolled mass migration and urbanization mark the dilemma of modern living. 

When we look around, we see so much chaos happening both local level  and at the global level and it mostly boils down to this one factor. "Fierce uncontrolled competition" combined with "win at all cost" attitude. 

Yes, people compete, businesses and brands compete with each other, children's too are taught to compete at an early age, that also means, in a sense:

"If one wants to win then many have to fail." 

Is that fair ?

This one thing is the cradle of all problems humanity is facing today.

Look closely, it's a pyramid system, with a few going up and most settling below at the baseline of success. 

Actually,  this is the cradle of all problems humanity is suffering today. 

Trouble starts in the society from there on. Some tend to get "everything" and they flaunt it, while some others get "nothing"  and they are distressed in society.

It's a vicious cycle, prompting conflicts. 

Prompting division and unrest.

For a PsyYogi too, competition is unavoidable in life and work. But, display healthy and fairness in competitions. For that gesture, good people will be with you. 

It's win-win that stays and flourishes in the long run. 


3. Be empathetic towards all the inhabitants of our planet.

Let's be empathetic to all the living beings on our planet Earth with the true spirit of  vasudhaiva kutumbakam. 

Kind and empathetic to not just fellow humans but to all living entities be it animals, birds or trees.  

Feel the situation others are in, deep within your heart, before dealing with them and you will be loved and remembered always in every good hearts that's stuffed with humanity. - PsyYoga.org

If todays world is lacking a major quality, its empathy.

When we go through so many experience and pains in life, we become conscious of it and understand it when others face them, whereas. On the contrary, imagine,  if our kids are bought up well greased, without seeing or experiencing any pain or hardship in their life or in the society they live in, chances are, their life experiences has very little to offer in terms of understanding other's pain and situation. So its isnt bad for them to experience all the bitterness and see and feel the sufferings people are subjected across the world. 

Or else they could grown up lacking the empathy to an extent, So, growing up in ones own natural way, even if its through struggles, isn't bad idea at all. The valuable life experiences and lessons life teaches one is priceless, and cannot be studied or obtained in the universities.

4. Keep intentions pure and clear at all times.

Our intentions are the seed for all our actions. -PsyYoga,org

Every action, good or bad takes birth as a seed in one's intentions. 

Keeping our intentions pure, honest, innocent, simple and under check is both beautiful and vital. Small children are loved for this quality. This is the primary path to a peaceful life. 

Also beware, 

If our intentions are let loose, bad intentions thrive like weed in fresh water. The default for the mind in todays world, seem to be bad intentions. 

They flourish like pests and like the weeds among fresh crop. Cut the weed out in the bud itself and nourish only the good crop.

Identify your intentions and keep a check on them. That's the way to lead a PsyYogi life.

5. Have great control over the spoken words.

All interpersonal troubles originates from the tongue. - PsyYoga.org

That age old adage "The slip of a tongue is more riskier than slip of a sword" stands true to this day. The latter might heal after sometime as well, but the former will continue to hurt.  

Keeping words gentle and kind at all times and during challenges is a PsyYogi's prerequisite. This is a real key to a happy interpersonal life.


6. Take firm decisions.

Make mindful decisions without rushing in.

Indecisions leads to far more complications in today's world than wrong decisions. - PsyYoga.org

Taking timely decisions in all walks of your life is an art. Be firm with decisions, and stand by them.

That'll make one strong as a person, most dependable to both self and of help to others. 

How to make one's life valuable? 

The answer is being useful, and standing up for oneself and for others. Showing up when needed. That way we get valued. When we are valued, we feel the happiness inside. 

Recollect an instance when someone important valued you and the happiness you felt and also think about someone who ignored you.  It hurt's right? 

 'Giving' is the path to 'Getting' - PsyYoga.org


7. Believe in the "Power of Love."

Believe, that there is no problem in this world, that cannot be solved with "Love."

Hate begets wars, whilst love begets peace - PsyYoga.org

Shower great love to all the creations seen on Earth, irrespective of caste, creed, religion, geography, language, gender, size, culture etc., 

Love begets love, hate begets more hate. 

This is a precondition.

8. Show respect.

Believe and practice "Giving respect." Giving respect is the only way to get the respect.

Respect is hard earned both in personal and professional life. 

Respect to the law of the land, respect all the religions, languages and cultures.

Respect to all the races, genders, elders, women, children, seniors, teachers, guru, all professions. Respect for achievements, expertise. Respect for nature, environment and to all living beings. 

That's a sigh of an 'Universal Person'  or 'Vishwa Purush'

Become an  'Vishwa Purush,' a  PsyYogi .

Mutual respect paves way for mutual love. 

Mutual love is the beginning to an Happy Life.


9. Be willing to forgive.

The most important virtue, next to truth, is forgiveness.- PsyYoga.org

Learn to forgive yourself first and forgive others too. It's isn't that easy and is the most difficult thing to do in this life.

Because, punishing others or troubling others is very easy. Forgiving others needs the highest form of courage. 

The cycle of karma will take care of your detractors. Forgive and start your life.

This attitude is the beginning towards an peaceful inner journey. 

No pills will work to get inner peace. We need to take a feather of wisdom and soothe our heart for it. - PsyYoga.org

 It took me almost five decades to understand it, but that's the truth. 

Forgiveness is godly act. 

Forgive and set your grudges free and work towards inner peace. 

Only when the sea is free from storm can the ship sail freely.


10. Be in open arms to help others in need.

Helping other's is like throwing a rubber ball against the wall, it rebounds with full force of good karma.  - PsyYoga.org

Yes, the good Karma will rebound in full force. It comes back in different ways  and in different forms with full force. That's the basic truth. 

By helping one another this world will become beautiful place to live.

"The sooner one liberates from the concept of I, me, myself\and merges with the universal being, the happier life will become" - PsyYoga.org


Help all. 

Set yourself free.
