When we feel happy and peaceful, happiness and peace radiate around us and other can enjoy it as well. This is called, “the enjoyment of others of our body of bliss.” There are many other beings that share peace and harmony, the tree, birds, the violet bamboo, and the yellow chrysanthemum.
When you practice walking meditation, practice releasing some of your anger and your sorrow when you look deeply into things and you will suffer less
We meditate not to feel enlightenment for enlightenment is already within us. We don’t have to search anywhere. We don’t have to need a purpose or a goal. We don’t meditate to get some high goal. We don’t meditate in order to not lack anything.
We are at peace just sitting at our window or hearing the sound of the rain. We can enjoy every moment. We are already nirvana.
When you wake up in the morning say:
Waking up this morning I smile.
Twenty-four brand new hours are before me.
I vow to live fully in each moment
And to look at all beings with the new eyes of love.
These twenty-four hours are a precious gift
We do not need to wait for chores to be done to be happy. If we think we have twenty-four hours to achieve happiness, today will become a means to an end. We will run in circles the rest of our lives. We have everything we need to make the present moment the happiest in our life, even if we have a cold or a headache. Having a headache is a part of life.
If we don’t know how to breathe, smile and to be present in every moment of our life deeply, we will never be able to help anyone. I am happy in the present moment. I do not ask for anything else. I do not ask for anything else. I do not expect any other conditions to bring about my happiness. The more important practice is aimlessness not running after things.
Yes there is tremendous suffering all over the world, but knowing this need not paralyze us. If we practice mindful breathing, mindful walking, mindful sitting and working in mindfulness, we try our best to help, and we can have peace in our heart. Worrying does not accomplish anything. Even if you worry twenty times more, it will not change the situation of the world. In fact, your anxiety will make the situation worse.
We don’t need to be anything else, or to perform a particular act. We only need to be happy in the present moment, and we can be of service to those we love and to our whole society. Aimlessness is stopping and realizing that happiness is already available. The practice of aimlessness is the practice of freedom.
