Already the famous Greek philosopher Seneca said 2000 years ago that “If you want your secret to being saved, save it yourself.” But it is not about keeping any secret, but keeping certain personal things in reserve that it is preferable not to disclose.
We refer to the teachings of the sages of India who based their philosophy on reflections on issues that have to do with our inner being and that should always remain in us.
Those secrets that have a direct connection with our weaknesses or with boasting about achievements, which in short is another weakness.
The fundamental aspect of Hindu Philosophy thought is its practical nature. Since its creation, approximately 4000 years ago a. C., the thought of the Hindu sages was centered in solving the fundamental problems of the life. His wisdom is born of the attempt to achieve a better life.
What we want to share today is a guide to seven aspects of the life of each person that according to the Hindu wisdom each one must keep for himself.
1. Do not divulge intimacies:
Some questions so personal, so one, so each human being must always remain in oneself and limit ourselves to subject them to an introspective and personal reflection.
Your problems regarding sleep, food or sex are issues that you must reserve for yourself and there is no point in revealing.
Let’s find inner harmony by our own means.
2. Do not divulge your spiritual knowledge:
Do not forget that we are talking about precepts of wise men from India who place spirituality in a very high place and of great recognition.
Spirituality is something that we must keep for ourselves because it is considered a treasure that has to do with how we see the world and we know that we do not all see it the same.
Your ideas, your thoughts, your analysis of life and spirituality may not be shared by all, so it is preferable to keep all this in oneself to avoid being questioned in such a profound and personal aspect.
3. Do not divulge your heroic acts:
If you had a courageous attitude or did an act of heroism, it is not necessary to shout it to the four winds.
We all see each other on a daily basis and for many that are visible, we receive our well-deserved recognition, but for others that are not seen, the recognition must be personal and must be used for self-admiration and not for others.
4. Do not reveal your projects:
We never finish knowing who we are telling a project for the future. These plans so intimate and so yours are just that; your plans.
No idea is perfect and everything you plan to do or specify can be the victim of criticism and even sabotage by envious people who resent having not had an idea equal or who simply find defects where there are none.
Wait until your projects are finalized to talk about them.
5. Do not divulge your charitable acts:
There is nothing more hateful than someone who boasts of having been generous or having developed an act of charity.
Doing something good for someone is extraordinary and we know that we need more charitable people, but it is not necessary to disclose having been generous but on the contrary, this must be kept as a precious treasure.
6. Do not divulge your family problems:
It is well said that “every home is a world”, and in every personal world, everything that happens there must remain.
Sharing the conflicts that exist in a house, in a family life or in a couple’s life may seem like a form of relief, but in many cases reproducing personal problems with several people creates the image that they are more than they are and that they can never be solved.
Others may not see your problems as they really are and could make value judgments without knowing the problem in depth. This does not suit you.
These conflicts can only be resolved within the home and maintaining them for oneself helps to reinforce the bond that unites you with yours.
7. Do not divulge everything you hear:
Permanently listen to stories that others tell us or even listen to them without wanting to listen to them. Who has not witnessed a couple’s argument or an intimate conversation about being near and by chance?
Taking home the problems we have heard from others or commenting negatively on other people is a waste of energy that we can use to generate something positive for ourselves.
Going home with a negative burden does not build anything good.
Interesting reflections of all that we must keep for ourselves and at the same time is necessary to preserve our psychological health.
It is important to keep in mind that personal identity is forged by establishing lines of protection.
