Here are the seven pieces of Buddhist wisdom that will transform your life:

1. Live your life with compassion!

Being compassionate isn't just about helping the world or feeling fulfilled. It's simply the right thing to do.

It's the right way to be. It's seeking to understand what's around you. And doing so will transform your life.

2. Forge new connections with other people.

And don't neglect the new connections! The Buddhists have communities of monks called Sanghas. It's simply a community of nuns, monks, and laypeople who practice peace together.

They join in a united goal with one another. We can learn a lot from that principle!

You don't have to be a super well rounded peacenik in order to promote peace. All you have to do is want peace.

3. Wake up.

And I don't mean that in the snotty, new-age sort of way. Not in the "you're a sheep and I'm a self-important jerk" way. I mean it in a very personal way.

I mean it in a way that I've experienced. I've gone through much of my life belonging to a rat race that I don't feel like anyone should be a part of.

These days, I strive to live life fully, to find joy in each moment, to overcome struggles, and to be fully present in this moment.

That was my awakening. Yours may differ, but doesn't stop yourself from experiencing it.

4. If you change yourself, you'll change the world around you.

You must be the change... It's the quote that we've all heard way too many times. But we've heard it so many times because it's true. We do have to be the change!

We have to start with ourselves. It's not you vs. them. There's no one vs. anyone in this case. You belong. You belong! Isn't that fantastic?

Don't be afraid to change yourself to belong even better. Don't be afraid to be a part of the world.

5. Embrace death.

This is one that I've struggled with and I know many people do too. It's downright taboo in most cultures to do anything but pretend it doesn't exist, and when it does, speak of it in soft voices and lowered tones.

In Buddhism, students often "meditate on the corpse." It's what it sounds like. You basically meditate on the image of a corpse slowly decomposing naturally, eventually dissipating completely. Sounds intense, right?

You don't necessarily have to meditate on your corpse, but open up about death. Think about it. Speak freely about it. Come to a better conclusion about it.

6. Give.

And I don't necessarily mean presents or even monetary donations. Give parts of yourself too. Volunteer. Give when you see a part of yourself that needs to be given. Story time:

I bought cat food today. As I was checking out, the woman asked me if I'd be willing to add $.60 to my tab to buy a can of cat food for the no-kill nonprofit animal shelter one county over.

She said they were really hurting for food because so many cats had been given up to them. I had $20 in my pocket from something I sold earlier on Craigslist, so I laid it down. Did I need $20? No. But some cats did apparently.

And that's what I mean. Open yourself up to giving when you see there is a need.

7. Remove your sense of attachment.

This one is the most important in my book. In our culture, we often cling to things like we would die without them. Like they give us the very life we enjoy.

In Buddhism, it's a common practice to forgo attachment. They forgo attachment to things, to art, to each other, and even to their own bodies.

Consider the things you have. Consider the people you have. Understand that this is in no way permanent.

Talk About Life

8 Habits Of Truly Positive People

1. They take time to slow down every day.

Each day, they have rituals in place to slow down and calm nerves. It may be exercise, meditation, yoga, a walk through the woods - whatever it is that brings them peace.

2. When faced with daunting challenges, they find the bright side.

Positive people can be real bright-siders in the face of adversity. It helps them remember that not everything is all that bad and things could be considerably worse.

Remembering the good aspects of life help give them the morale needed to fix the bad parts.

3. They aren't afraid to fully feel negativity.

Positive people feel like they're free to feel negative sometimes. That negativity can help propel them in the right direction by giving them motivation to fix whatever problems might arise for them.

4. They're kind to themselves.

They don't trash talk themselves. They don't put themselves down. Positive people are kind to themselves as they'd expect to be kind to others.

They take care of themselves. They keep themselves in good health. They keep a smile on their faces. They are kind to themselves.

5. They don't make time for toxic people.

Time or room for that matter. Toxic people have no place in the life of a truly positive person.

If they have to be around you, they will and they'll be there with a smile on their face. But when it comes to making time for people, the toxic ones shouldn't expect the time of day.

6. They embrace even the smallest victories.

A good day at work, a good day at home, getting a lot of work done, going further on the treadmill than ever before - they're all minor victories really.

Truly positive people embrace those victories. They see them as a a reason to celebrate!

7. They stay pragmatic.

It's important to be optimistic, but they don't let that optimism cloud their judgement. They don't let it lull them into false sense of security. They stay realistic, even when the goings get tough.

8. They make big goals for themselves.

Because their self-esteem is so high, because they feel so good about themselves and their surroundings, positive people feel like they can set big goals for themselves and accomplish them.

In many cases, they will accomplish them because they are exactly as awesome as they think they are.

Their Behavior Made You Change

5 Common Habits That Always Lead To Unhappiness

Nobody can influence how you feel except you. This is something that's easy to say, but infinitely more difficult to accept. We all strive to be happy, no matter what we're doing in life, but it's hard to keep a sunny disposition when the inevitable happens.

Life is short and life is difficult at times, but ultimately, we are in control of how happy or unhappy we are. Unhappiness is different from depression, and the difference has to do with disposition.

Depression is a result of a chemical imbalance in the brain, but unhappiness or happiness is determined by how we choose to live our lives.

If you feel like you've been living in a state of unhappiness, here are five habits of unhappy people, and how to avoid them.

1. Overly Critical of Oneself and Others

Since happiness is something that can be controlled, it's important to think positively about yourself.

Negativity just brings you down, especially if you're always overly critical of yourself or your own abilities.

If you feel good about yourself, it's no coincidence that you'll feel good in general.

You also need to respect another person's right to happiness; don't let them influence your own disposition.

2. Living Beyond Your Means

In a materialistic society, it's easy to get caught up in wanting the finer things in life.

However, when you step beyond the boundaries of your own financial means, you're setting yourself up to be unhappy.

It's true that there is more to life than money, but being in debt can really put a damper on your spirits.

3. Adopting Negative Addictions

Being happy is all about doing the things you love in moderation. Decadent food, a strong drink, and entertainment are all good for your happiness, but once they become addictions, they become a source of unhappiness.

When a person feels unhappy, it can be easy to turn to alcohol or drugs in an attempt to feel better. Unfortunately, they only numb your pain temporarily.

4. Worrying About the Future

The future is something that is largely outside the bounds of our control.

Yet, it's a source of constant worry for many of us. If you worry about the future too much, it's going to limit how happy you are in everyday life.

People worry about what they don't have the power to control, and the future couldn't be a better example. If you can't control it, don't worry about it.

5. A Poor Diet

What we put in our bodies directly impacts how we feel. The stomach has strong ties to the brain, and these ties become more evident when we eat unhealthily.

Junk food and snacks aren't able to sustain our bodies and our brains throughout the course of the day; you need to eat fruits, vegetables, and protein rich foods in order to feel the way you should.

Be A Good Person

6 Signs You're Becoming A Toxic Person

1. You focus on #1 all the time.

It's an important thing to take care of yourself. You need to be good to your body and mind. But when everything becomes about you, not just your well being but every little whim and preference needs to be matched, it's a sign you're becoming a toxic person.

2. It's never your fault.

There's always someone you can blame for what is so clearly your fault. No matter what the argument is about or what happens, you find a way to deflect any blame off of yourself and onto other people.

3. You complain all the time.

Complaining is healthy. It helps you get your thoughts out of your head and into the world and can get people helping you resolve issues.

It's when you only complain and never do anything about it that your complaining becomes counterproductive.

4. You're a gossiper.

No one likes a gossip. By doing this kind of thing, you're trying to present yourself at a higher level by pushing others down.

In reality, you're only dragging them down to your level. You aren't uplifting yourself by doing this at all.

5. You're a drama king/queen.

Everything in your life seems to be some big dramatic battle and everyone seems to end up in a fight with you at some point. This is something that happens when you become a toxic person.

6. You can't recognize yourself.

Maybe it's time to make a change for the better. Are you still searching for your life purpose? You won't believe what the science of Numerology can reveal about you!

That's right, the numerology of your birth date, regardless of what month you were born, can reveal surprising information about your personality.

The Hardest Moments

5 Signs You Are Not Lonely Even Though You're Alone

Some people think that being alone is a bad thing. I can't tell you how many times my friends or family members have tried to "fix me up" because they are sad that I'm alone.

Well, I'm not sad! I find being alone exhilarating! I need my alone time to re-group and re-charge my inner batteries. Read on for five signs that you aren't lonely even when you're alone.

1. You value freedom and independence

This one is big for me. I need my freedom; freedom to do what I want, when I want, and not have anyone around to judge me if I decide I want a bowl of ice cream for dinner.

I know I am capable of taking care of myself and that gives me a deep sense of joy and accomplishment.

2. You are adventurous

Some people wouldn't dream of going out to eat by themselves, nevertheless take a road trip alone. You have no problem doing the things you love to do without anyone going with you.

In fact, you prefer to go alone because then you can do what makes you happy without worrying that someone else will be bored.

3. You have a desire for learning and self-improvement

I love learning how to do things on my own. I've taught myself how to install faucets, light fixtures and ceiling fans. I even installed cork flooring by myself!

Being alone has also given me time to identify my inner demons and find ways to deal with them.

4. You don't lie to yourself

Being around other people makes you susceptible to creating an outer facade; of being someone you think other people want you to be rather than your true self.

Being alone gives you the opportunity to learn who you are, what you want, and where you want to go in life.

Once you have discovered and become comfortable with who you are, it's much easier to be your true self around others.

5. You realize that being alone is an important life lesson

Everyone has ups and downs in life.

There are times when we seek support from others and times when we find being alone is more beneficial. It's these alone times that truly show ourselves to ourselves.

In other words, the time you spend alone prepares you for the moments in life that call on you to deal with difficulties on your own and enables you to cope with them much better.
