What are we looking for in the world? Health, peace, money, love? The wisdom of the Tibetan monks gives us the answer: we seek satisfaction with ourselves in order to reach this pleasure with others.

Gabriel García Márquez said that wisdom comes to us too late. But perhaps wisdom comes early in life, but we do not know how to access it.
We spend half of our life trying to find answers for everything and get everything we want.
If we put these tips into practice and direct our actions, we will reach an inner tranquility that will greatly facilitate our lives.
We live in a world where there is no place for spirituality and to cultivate ourselves, so it is extremely important to explore. Searching in yourself is difficult, but it is worth it.
