In the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali gives the following advice for a peaceful state of existence and the keeping of it:
By cultivating attitudes of friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous and disregard towards the wicked, the mind-stuff (citta) retains its undisturbed calmness.
Yoga Sutras 1:33
Jesus tells us:
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Matthew 7:1-2 (KJV)
Life Coaching and Spiritual Teaching are in harmony with each other in that one works specifically with the Spirit; the other is a touch more mundane and helps people with the same truths but allows them to apply them to their day-to-day lives.
With Spiritual Teaching, we deal with the aspects of Life and Spirit and developing skills that allow us to expand our individual involvement with that which is outside the apparent world.
With Life Coaching, we are more interested in the typical day-to-day aspects of life, the goals for life and work, love, etc. Life Coaching is about helping one realize the hopes, goals and wishes that people want in their lives. Since no two people are the same, their goals are not to be expected to be the same, albeit they tend to have many aspects in common.
