7 Things That You Should Always Keep Secret, According To The Hindu Philosophy

Around 2000 years ago the Roman philosopher Seneca said: “If you want your secret to being saved, save it yourself.” Sometimes, is not about keeping secrets but it is about keeping specific personal things to yourself which are not preferable to tell.
The sages of India based their philosophy on reflections on problems which have to do with things should we not tell and with our inner being. When it comes to the Hindu Philosophy, the fundamental aspect is its practical nature.
Even from its creation, the thought of the Hindu sages was focused on solving the fundamental issues of life. The wisdom is born due to the attempt to have a better life.

Below you will see 7 aspects of each person’s life which according to the Hindu Philosophy should stay secret.

1) Do not reveal your projects:

Remember what you plan on doing in the future, is yours and intimate. There is no such thing as a perfect idea. Therefore everything you choose to do or plan to do in the near future might be sabotaged by envious individuals who resent having no good idea.
Moreover, your plans and projects might be a victim of criticism, or people might look for flaws and defects. The best thing to do would be to finish your projects and then talk about them.

2) Do not divulge your charitable acts:

There isn’t anything more inappropriate than bragging about your generosity towards someone or how you have made a charitable act.Not a lot of people in the world are charitable, or would they do anything for someone else without gaining any profit from it.
Nonetheless, if you are one of those people, then never brag about it, instead keep it as a personal treasure.

3) Do not divulge your heroic acts:

If you had a courageous attitude or did an act of heroism, it is not necessary to shout it to the four winds. We all see each other on a daily basis and for many that are visible, we receive our well-deserved recognition, but for others that are not seen, the recognition must be personal and must be used for self-admiration and not for others.

4) Do not divulge intimacies:

There are some things such as food, s.e.x, sleep and so on; we should keep these things to ourselves and try to resolve them on our own. There is no point in asking for help from someone when we’re the only ones that can solve them.

5) Do not divulge your spiritual knowledge:

You should know that spirituality is something which you must keep to yourself since this is believed to be a treasure, which has to do with how people see the world differently.
Everyone might not share your spirituality, your analysis of life, your thoughts and ideas. Therefore, you should keep this to yourself in order to avoid being questioned in personal and profound aspect.

6) Do not divulge your family problems:

The Hindu philosophers think that “every home is a different world”, and that in every personal life, all the things that happen in the family are supposed to stay between the family members.
It could be a momentary relief if you talk to someone about the conflicts in your family or your relationships. But, if you share your personal problems constantly to several people, then that makes it seem like the problems are bigger than you can handle and the people you are explaining them to see an extremely difficult situation.
Others might look at the problems differently. They can also be judgmental about them as they don’t know the depth of the problems.
This isn’t helping you at all.These family problems and issues should be kept a secret and resolved internally within the family, where they came from in the first place.
Keeping them between the family members can strengthen the bond that unites the family members.

7) Do not divulge everything you hear:

Permanently listen to stories that others tell us or even listen to them without wanting to listen to them. Who has not witnessed a couple’s argument or an intimate conversation about being near and by chance? Taking home the problems we have heard from others or commenting negatively on other people is a waste of energy that we can use to generate something positive for ourselves.
Going home with a negative burden does not build anything good. Interesting reflections of all that we must keep for ourselves and at the same time is necessary to preserve our psychological health. It is important to keep in mind that personal identity is forged by establishing lines of protection.
