Do not be sad-The fundamentals of happiness

Postby bailyloves on November 4th, 2010, 6:54 am

Hello everybody.I think this off-topic conversation post will help us all who mostly suffer from anxiety/sadness/depression[may not b true for all] along with bfs part.Here r the some points to manage anxiety/depression.1-Know that if u do not live within the scope of today,your thoughts will b scattered,your affairs will become confused,and your worrying will increase-these realities explain 'when u r in the morning,do not expect to c the evening,and when u r in the evening, do not expect to c the morning'.2-Forget the bad memories of past.3-Do not b preoccupied with the future.Becoz the future is in the world of the unseen,do not let it bother u until it comes.I think this very important.4-Do not b shaken by criticism;instead b firm.And know that,in proportion to ur worth,the level of people's critisism rises.5-Faith in GOD and do good deeds;these r the ingredients that make up a good and happy life.6-whoever desires peace,tranquility and comfort can find it all in the remembrance of GOD.7-U should know with certanity that everything that happens,occurs in accordance with a divine decree.8-DO not expect gratitude from anyone.9-Train yourself to b ready and prepared for the worst eventualities.10- Perhaps what has happened is in your best interest[though u may not comprehend how that is so].11-Enumerate the blessings of GOD and b thankful for them.12-You r better off than many others -see the persons who r in bad condition than u.12-Calamities should strengthen ur heart and reshape your outlook in a positive sense.13-Indeed,with each difficulty thereis relief.14-Do not let trifles b the cause of your distruction.14-Do not b angry,do not b angry,do not b angry .15-Life is bread,water and shade;so do not b perturbed by lack of any other material things.16-Most evil that is supposed happen NEVER OCCURS.17-When GOD loves a people ,he makes them endure trials.18-Work hard at something that is productive,and cast off idleness.19-Dont spread rumors and dont listen them.If u hear a rumor inadvertently,then dont believe it.20-Lastly, the hardship that befall you atone for your sins.These points helped me alot personally fighting myself against bfs trouble and associated fears.Equally this board and you all nice[always reassuring] people in this forum have also played an imp role in my life during initial stages of fears.Theres one book named DONT B SAD written by mr.Aaidh al-Qarni which is an exellent book i ever read.Most of the citations r taken from it. I think this shall b a very useful thread for all bfs sufferers.stopping now coz its becoming a long post. Takecare everyone...REGARDS,,,,,,,,Baily.

21. Know the difference between happiness and Joy. Happiness and sadness are human emotions, that can come and go with the wind. Joy is a timeless, enduring, divine force that can be experienced when living in harmony with the Will of ones own soul.
A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which are only accessible to our reason in their most elementary forms--Albert Einstein
