1. Resolve all battles before you go

Bhairav said: People carry so much baggage, unnecessarily, all through their life only wanting to drop it at the very end of their journey. The trick lies not in not having conflicts but in resolving them as soon as one can.”

2. Modesty is the truth of life

Bhairav said: “People stop eating indulgent food when they know they are going to go. The understanding that dawns on many people in their final days is that they should’ve lived a simple life. They regret that the most.”

3. Find beauty in simple things

According to the Bhairav, People who are too proud are the ones who find it hard to find joy in small things and those small things are the real gifts of the life.

4. Accept everyone as the same

The day you treat everyone same is the day you breathe light and worry less. Categorization leads to complication and one ends up serving no one well.

5. Habits becomes values

Building good habits happen over time, with practice. And those habits, over time, become values. It’s like building a muscle; you have to keep at it every day.
