Integrate the six mantras into your daily interactions


  1. Express your presence to your loved one.
    When you are with someone, put away distractions like your phone or other devices, and listen actively to what they are saying. Show that you are there both physically and mentally. You don’t have to verbally say that “you’re there for them. You can just show it to them by giving them your undivided attention.
  2. Acknowledge the presence of others.
    Acknowledge the presence of others and express joy in their existence. This could be as simple as greeting a family member with enthusiasm when they come home or sending a quick message or call to let someone know you're thinking of them and appreciate them. It's important to make people in your life feel seen and valued.
  3. Be attentive to signs of distress or discomfort in others.
    When you notice someone might be struggling, offer your support without trying to fix their problems immediately. Sometimes, just being there and acknowledging their pain is powerful. Ask, "What can I do to support you right now?" or simply state the mantra "I know you suffer, and that is why I am here for you." to show your willingness to be there for them.
  4. Reach out for support openly when you’re experiencing difficulty.
    When you are the one experiencing difficulty, reach out for support openly. It can be challenging to admit vulnerability, but sharing your struggles can strengthen your relationships. You might write down your feelings first to clarify what you're experiencing before sharing them. Remember, it's okay to ask for help, and doing so is a step towards healing and connection.
  5. Recognize and appreciate the joyful moments as they occur.
    This could be during a peaceful family dinner, a walk with a friend, or a quiet moment alone. Remind yourself and others to cherish these times by stating the mantra, “This is a happy moment.” out loud or reflecting on it silently. This helps build a habit of gratitude and presence.
  6. Maintain humility and open-mindedness when receiving feedback or criticism.
    When receiving criticism, always keep a balanced view of yourself and others. For instance, if someone compliments you, you can acknowledge the compliment while remembering your flaws. Similarly, if criticized, remember your strengths. This mantra encourages a more nuanced self-perception and teaches you to accept both compliments and critiques gracefully.
