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.

Infuatuation

This is the first step of all relationships but it remains on a shallow level. It's usually a fine line between lust and love and infatuation never usually makes it past the lust and into a meaningful connection. Yet, infatuation is often disguised as love and can be confusing.

The more both parties are physically attracted to each other, the more they want to spend all of their time together and move a relationship really quickly from the get-go. However, this kind of relationship is usually short-lived. When relationships get too intense, too quickly, they don't tend to take the time to build a solid enough foundation to grow on, and many of the red flags just get brushed off only to come back later.

Liking

This is usually the second stage of a relationship. Once we decide that we are attracted enough to someone, we become open to getting to know them better. From there, the more we get to know them, the more feelings are developed based on what we know. This is still an introductory stage to relationships, because the more layers are peeled, the higher the risk of finding some sort of dealbreaker that ends the relationship there.

During this stage either feelings will develop closer to love, and increase passion or commitment, or they will eventually fade and grow closer to a friendship It all depends on shared values, interests, and needs.

Empty Love

This is a tricky kind of relationship. On one hand, it is an exclusive relationship with an agreed-upon commitment. Couples experiencing this type of love could spend years on end together but still lack intimacy and passion. They may truly enjoy each other's company and care deeply about one another but still be missing that special spark that makes everything come together.

Over time the relationship becomes comfortable but boring. It's not necessarily that anyone is doing anything wrong, but there is no denying that the relationship is just missing something to make it feel passionate and exciting.

Fatuous Love

This is the most common type of love as it includes two of the three foundations: commitment and passion. Couples often find that enough to pursue their relationship and exchange their vows. Yet, this kind of relationship despite having attraction lacks true intimacy.

These kinds of relationships go through many ups ad downs, they have their good days but they also have the days where they feel like they're not truly happy or like their needs aren't being fully met. This could be due to differing love languages or because the couple isn't able to reach a high enough level of vulnerability to fully give themselves to someone else.

Romantic Love

This kind of love has another combination of the three pillars of love: passion and intimacy. The feelings are there and so is the attraction. Couples in this kind of relationship feel really close to one another and it's easy for them to open up. They fall deeply in love, rather quickly and naturally. The only problem is they can't necessarily agree on where the relationship is headed so they just brush it off.

They put off serious commitments hoping to just go with the flow and figure the rest out in time. Unfortunately in many instances, the relationship reaches a termination point because of major commitments that can't be agreed on.

Companionate Love

Companionate love consists of commitment and intimacy, another combination that is still lacking. This type of love is somewhere between the line of friendship and love. There is somewhat of an attraction that makes the friendship feel stronger but it's mostly due to the strong bond that's shared. This kind of couple is each other's best friend, They trust each other fully, and are able to be completely themselves.

The attraction is there and the love is genuine but it's missing that head over heels super-in-love kind of feeling. Many relationships develop into this kind of love after many years of marriage.

Consummate Love

This is the ideal kind of love and yet it is the rarest of all. It is made of all the pillars of the perfect relationship: love passion, emotional and physical intimacy, and commitment. The levels of each vary throughout time but there is enough of each to keep the relationship young even after years of commitment. Arguments are resolved peacefully, affection is given freely and plans of the future are carried out.

These couples are just as in love as the day they met during their final days. They find ways to keep their relationships exciting and keep on surprising one another. They never allow themselves to truly get comfortable and stop appreciating what they have. They trust each other fully while still pursuing their own independence.

Healthy Love

All that matters in love is that you are happy and the love is healthy. The rest can be developed and worked on with the right person. In any relationship, always look at how you feel and ask yourself: does this person make you love yourself more? Do you want to grow old with them?

Love is more than just kisses and butterflies, it's much more than that. If you want to know more on what your birth chart reveals about how you love and what you need out of a partner, check out this personalized report based on date of birth.
