As the famous Greek philosopher Seneca said 2000 years ago, “If you want your secret to be saved, save it yourself.” But it is not about keeping any secret, but keeping certain personal things in reserve that you do not want to be shared.
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 Hindu wisdom each one must keep for himself.
This is not because they are shameful or anything like that but merely because we need to be keeping them for ourselves. Whether you follow this religion or not I think these are all things most of us can agree on. How many of these do you already partake in keeping for your own?
7 Things That Should Be Kept Secret, According To Hindu Philosophy:
Do Not Push Your Spiritual Knowledge On Others
Our spiritual knowledge is our own. No one sees things in the same ways that we do. Sometimes our journey is a bit different and that is alright. While you should share your spiritual knowledge with those who want you to, you should not be pushing it on others.
Don’t Reveal Your Projects To Someone Else
Spread your eggs out, put them all in different baskets. Don’t put yourself in the position where someone else is going to jump the gun and take all the glory from you. Sometimes getting things done and then making them known is better in the long run.
Don’t Share Your Story With Strangers
We all have our own story. This is our truth and part of our soul. We should not be sharing this with everyone we come across. Some things just don’t need to be as out in the open as others.
We shouldn’t be talking about other people, especially in a negative light. This only brings bad energies on ourselves and is not going to benefit anyone in the long run. There is no sense in all of this. We are better than that.
Don’t Brag About Acts Of Kindness
When you do something kind don’t expect to get to brag about it. If you’re doing something good without the right intentions or your heart in the right place, you’re only going to make yourself look bad. Acts of kindness should go unspoken.
Don’t Shout Your Problems To The World
Don’t be too open about your problems. Sure, talking to your family and close friends is fine, but you shouldn’t be as open to the public as some people are. The less you share with the world, the less that can be used against you. Only give power to your support group.
Don’t Share Details About Your Love Life
Don’t share the details of your love life with people who have no business knowing about it. Feel free to talk any issues out with your significant other, but don’t tell all your friends about the problems you’re having if you haven’t even addressed them. Be respectful of the person you’re with.
