Enlightenment is a big word. It conjures images of sitting under a tree, renouncing your family, going to a monastery or living in a cave. None of these options look very attractive or practical in today’s world. How can you become enlightened while tending to your busy life?
Nobody readily admits to being a negative person. Still, a lot of people could benefit from being more conscious about their Yes to life. Saying Yes to life not only makes you a more happy person, it is the key to personal freedom.
Balancing the never-ending demands of a busy life with some peace and quiet is a challenge that might feel daunting. It doesn’t have to be that way! The teachings of Buddha do not ask that you remove yourself from everyday life and become a monk.
