Our Topic Today: Meditation

  • a tool or a technique to remain calm in moments
  • a lifestyle transformation
  • develop a meditative lifestyle and perspective to look at life and yourself

 

Meditation is a courage to be silent and alone

  • we are afraid to look into ourselves, our inner dialogue, our inner worries, beliefs and values
  • learn to hear your own voice and how you’re connected with the whole world

 

Zen Buddhist and the underlying idea of Zen

  • Sōkyū Gen’yū
    • Zen = meditation
    • Zen is a way to alter our awareness so that we can control and monitor our chaotic mind and soul
    • The Yawning method

From the Confucian Analects :

I have no course for which I am predetermined, and no course against which I am predetermined.

  • The universe emerged from chaos, so does our mind
  • When you quiet down your mind, you will start to see the Possibility of yourself and your life
  • Don’t belittle yourself or undermine your ability or shake your belief

In this beautiful and lucid guide, Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh offers gentle anecdotes and practical exercise as a means of learning the skills of mindfulness–being awake and fully aware. From washing the dishes to answering the phone to peeling an orange, he reminds us that each moment holds within it an opportunity to work toward greater self-understanding and peacefulness.
