My Notes

Please learn about meditation, it’s worth for our soul and our life 🙂

About Meditation >>

“People who come to me for relief from stress and stress-related disorders need an effective meditation that’s quickly mastered and produces consistent results.

“Though TM is a mental technique, due to the mind-body relationship the practice has extensive physiological effects. TM allows the mind to settle very deeply inward—in a natural way. TM teachers call this effortless transcending. It’s what sets TM apart and why the technique is so beneficial for mind and body, right from the start.”

Plasma cortisol is a stress hormone. The study shows that plasma cortisol decreased during Transcendental Meditation, whereas it did not change significantly in control subjects during ordinary relaxation. Reference: Adrenocortical activity during meditation, Hormones and Behavior 10(1): 54-60, 1978.

”No other ‘stress management technique’ has anywhere close to this amount of hard data in support of its claims to reduce stress.”—Norman Rosenthal, M.D., Psychiatrist, Georgetown University Medical School

Meaning of life [about piece of life]


This article is about the philosophical concept. For other uses, see Meaning of life (disambiguation).

Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?

The meaning of life is a philosophical question concerning the significance of life or existence in general. It can also be expressed in different forms, such as “Why are we here?“, “What is life all about?”, and “What is the purpose of existence?” It has been the subject of much philosophical, scientific, and theologicalspeculation throughout history. There have been a large number of proposed answers to these questions from many different cultural and ideological backgrounds.

The meaning of life is in the philosophical and religious conceptions of existencesocial tiesconsciousness, and happiness, and borders on many other issues, such as symbolic meaningontologyvalue, purpose,ethicsgood and evilfree will, the existence of a or multiple Godsconceptions of God, the soul, and theafterlife. Scientific contributions focus primarily on describing related empirical facts about the universe, exploring the context and parameters concerning the ‘how’ of life. Science also studies and can provide recommendations for the pursuit of well-being and a related conception of morality. An alternative, humanisticapproach poses the question “What is the meaning of my life?” The value of the question pertaining to the purpose of life may coincide with the achievement of ultimate reality, or a feeling of oneness, or even a feeling of sacredness.

Perhaps you think I’ve set myself an impossible challenge here?

Not so. The meaning of life is pretty straightforward to state. Your life has whatever meaning you give to it. So the question becomes: what do people say gives their lives meaning? That’s easy enough to measure and psychologists have done exactly that.

Baumeister and Vohs (2002) have synthesised four factors. When people are asked, the more they report each of these four factors being fulfilled, the more meaningful their lives feel:

  1. Purpose – this could be living happily ever after, going to heaven or even (whisper it) found at work. Whatever it is, meaning in life comes from reaching goals and feeling fulfilled. Even though fulfilment is hard to achieve because the state fades, people need purpose.
  2. Values – people need a moral structure to work out what is right and what is wrong. There are plenty to choose from: some come from religion, others from philosophy and still others from your friends and family.
  3. Efficacy – people want to make a difference and have some control over their environment. Without that, the meaning of life is reduced.
  4. Self-worth – we all want to feel we’re good and worthwhile people. We can do this individually or by hitching ourselves to a worthy cause. Either way we need to be able to view ourselves in a positive light.

So, there you have it: the meaning of life in under 300 words.

Two words of warning. Firstly, it can be difficult to get all these things in the same place, although not impossible. We use family, work, hobbies and other things to fulfil our need for meaning. Secondly, a meaningful life is probably necessary to be happy, but it isn’t sufficient.

What meaning do you give to your life?

No past..no future..no problem..just; this present

 

notes; 

kadang, kita ditinggalkan karena menjadi diri sendiri…
karena kita bukan zombie yang harus mengikuti cara orang lain, yang terbaik adalah diri sendiri.
tapi jika ada orang-orang yang pergi karena menginginkan kita menjadi sama dengan kebanyakan orang, maka lihatlah yang tertinggal. itulah yang disebut teman, bukan mereka yang pergi 🙂

 

happiness and grief


A little boy wanted to test his grandfather who he says was never wrong. She caught a butterfly in her grandfather and asks “does a butterfly hands me this dead or alive?” When his grandfather died, he responsibility will remove but if Grandpa for life he would squeeze to death.

The child is happy because felt he would defeat his grandfather, but the grandfather replied:
“Son, living dead butterflies were in your hand.”

The Moral  Teaching Point is:

Likewise our lives. Want to grieve or happy?
Mourn for life or be thankful all the time?
Keep this life is a series of choices.
And choice in our hands. …

Seorang anak kecil ingin mencobai kakeknya yang katanya tidak pernah salah. Dia tangkap seekor kupu-kupu dan bertanya pada kakeknya “apakah kupu-kupu ditangan saya ini mati atau hidup ?” Kalau kakeknya jawab mati, dia akan lepaskan tetapi kalau kakek jawab hidup dia akan pencet sampai mati.

Si anak senang karena merasa dia akan mengalahkan kakeknya, tapi kakek menjawab :
“Nak, hidup mati kupu-kupu itu ada di tanganmu. ”

Essensi nya adalah : 
Demikian juga hidup kita ini. Mau berduka atau bersuka?
Meratapi hidup atau bersyukur senantiasa?
Hidup ini tetap adalah serangkaian pilihan.
Dan pilihan di tangan kita ….
