2018 was the year I visited Nepal, a very religious country. About 80% of the population are Hindu, 10% are Buddhist. I noticed the low percentage of buddhism and it surprised me because Buddha is born in Nepal. However, you do find a lot of Buddha statues in Nepal. Honestly I don’t know a lot about Hinduism. But what I do know, is that the population inspired me. Their mindset and their kindness inspired me. My journey to Nepal really changed a lot for me. In the next year I will be definitely telling you all about this life changing journey. It encouraged me to take a closer look at Hinduism and Buddhism.
I am not a believer and I am not religious but I do feel a lot of attachment to all the knowledge of Buddhism and Hinduism. There are so many life lessons and so many wise sayings, that I believe, can help me develop as a person. How I see it, Buddhism is all about inner peace and not attaching to anything. It helps you to live in the moment.
I downloaded a couple of E-books on my IPad about Buddhism and how to apply it in your daily life. I have not read it yet, but I am very curious about this and I will do this in the new year. I am gonna give it a try. As soon as I notice any difference a new blog will be online, I am gonna let you know if it changed things for me and if I recommend it or not.
I have been very focussed on my mindset lately and I want to continue this. I believe your mindset has a great power over your life, it can change your life entirely, it can help you follow your dreams. If you ask me, mindset is everything.
Sayings from Buddhism/Hinduism that inspired me:
- ‘Do not get upset with people or situations, both are powerless without your reaction.’
- ‘Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional’.
- ‘Speak only if it improves upon the silence.’
- ‘Anything that costs you your peace is too expensive.’
